hey all -

I went to this show, too, as well as the one in philly the night before.  
both shows were excellent!!  they've only done Finn Brothers songs, so no 
Crowded House (except for Woodface) or solo stuff right now, at least until 
the new cd is released and they go on tour again.  they did do Better Be 
Home Soon at one show though.  it was on the setlist for the new york show 
as an encore, but they played I See Red and I Got You.  I have the setlists 
fom both nights, so I'll post them when I get home.

Hey everybody,
Went to the Finn Brothers concert in Central Park last
night.  It was one of the best concerts I've ever
seen.  Their new album, Everyone Is Here, will be
released in the USA on August 24.  THey played a bunch
of songs from it and I think this will be some of the
best music either of them has written in a while, so
I'm really looking forward to getting the album.  I
didn't really catch the names of the new songs, but
they played a great mix of Crowded House and Split Enz
stuff, including these songs (sort of in the order
they were played):

Weather With You
6 Months In A Leaky Boat (this totally rocked)
One Step Ahead Of You
Suffer Never (another awesome rendition, this is from
their previous Finn Brothers album)
There Goes God
Poor Boy
Edible Flowers
Angel's Heap
History Never REpeats
It's Only Natural
How Will YOu Go
I See Red (very cool)
I Got You (very very cool!)
4 Seasons In One Day (they got the crowd singing along
for this one)

It was a great show.  I got some pictures that I can
share after I get my film developed, if anyone's
interested.  This is assuming my photos turn out ok.
Anyway, I'm not sure how long their tour is, but go
see them if you can!  It's worth it.  Too bad Bones
wasn't playing bass cos it would've been cool to see
him, but then I was at Ellis Island and the ranger who
lead the tour looked an awful lot like Bones, so I
kinda felt like I got to see him anyway!
