Yes, I'm still reeling from the attack on Sacramento Memorial Auditorium from the Red Rocker and his intensely rockin' band. From 8:15pm until 10:40pm on August 19, Sacramento's ass was kicked, and kicked HARD! Sammy made a point of letting the audience know that he remembered his late '70's and early '80's gigs at the ol' Memorial Auditorium; we let him know that we remembered too!! I won't go specifically into each song on the set list because, with one exception, it's the same from recent shows. What really threw me for a loop was the inclusion of "Both Sides Now". Great job with this song. Sammy said they worked it at soundcheck and decided to put it in the set - great decision! So just let me give you all some personal highlights from the show:
(1) Obviously the awesome "Waborita Intermission"
(2) "Bad Motor Scooter"
(4) "Little White Lie"
(5) "I Can't Drive 55" (Any Doubts?!)
(6) "Heavy Metal" (My personal fave - and the rest of the crowd went insane too!)
(7) "The Yogi's So High..." (Intensely tight and trippy live)
Well, hope you can share this on the webpage. Anyone who hasn't seen the show is in for a REAL treat. All of the band members give their all with their performances, and of course, Sammy is in the groove the entire night! His performance is sincerely from the heart - yes, I felt it.
Thanks to Patti Heneghan for the review!
