After a not-so-brief sound-check, Crowded House themselves came on. The did almost every track on Time On Earth, and a lot of their big hits from way back when. In the main set, I'd say that my favorite song was Distant Sun, which was about half-way through. The balance was pretty good by that point, and the band seemed to be getting into it a bit more than they had been with the newer, more sedate music. Of course, after the main set, they came back for five (!) encores, all of which were great.
The band seemed very tight, especially considering that they've only been playing for a few months. Well, I suppose that's not quite true... The bassist Nick Seymour has been part of Crowded House forever, and the guitarist/pedal guitarist/keyboard player/etc. Mark Hart has been with them for quite some time. Anyhow, they were great. The bass was a tad bit loud for the first few songs, but that happens.
The only real problem with this concert was the complete lack of Tim Finn. Not just his person, but also his songs. Weather With You and Four Seasons in One Day are both incredible songs, but they're also Finn Brothers songs, and are apparently not part of the new Crowded House repertoire. It was still an awesome concert. Yay Crowded House!
