Steve and Wilbur
Went to see Steve Earle on Sunday, 5/12 at the Wilbur Theater in Boston. His wife, Alison Moorer did not play but the Mastersons and his regular drummer and bassist did and it was extraordinary. They had the Wilbur set up for cafe seating and we were at a table right in front of the stage. This was fantastic. He did stuff from his new album, some old songs like Guitar Town, Copperhead Road, Hard Core Troubadour, etc. The crowd was really enthusiastic and he did two encores, three songs in the first and two in the second. He closed with the song he closed with in Concord NH the last time we saw him: It Takes a Lot To Laugh It Takes a Train To Cry, introduced as before with , "This one is by Bob."
