A day and a night and the Time

All my plans for cultural events for my day off went by the wayside as it started to rain. Not so much because the rain would make the things I wanted to do impossible (heck, most of them were inside), but because rainy days are good for sleeping. So that's what I did. Sacked out on the couch in front of the Twins game. Occasionally amused the dogs that were visiting but otherwise got nothing accomplished.

The night, however, was a different story! No rain was going to prevent me from getting downtown to see Morris Day. I caught a bus downtown and got to the venue just in time to catch him starting. From those first, funky notes to the end of the show, it was classic Time. I think my favorite moment of the show was when a guy who must have been 70 wandered through the crowd, just your normal-looking older guy wearing a baseball cap. His cap, however, read "The Time."

Nice mix of people at the show. Intermittent showers meant that I got a bit damp, but also that I made friends with the folks nearby who brought their golf umbrellas.

Very dance-able show with only a small interlude of slow, soulful material. Morris's new guitar player was a stand-out among the musicians. The show, however, was all Morris. And Jerome. But mostly Morris.
