Give a review of the best, most memorable DA, Eddies
or Lost Dogs show you've seen...

(Some people have never got to see them.)

My ONLY DA gig Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

was 2002 at Cornerstone. It was so cool. To make matters more perfect, Rob Watson was with them, so they did a lot of VOX tunes and Dopple tunes--which I really love. So it was perfect.

The next night the Dogs played and that was my first all out, full band version, of the Dogs. So that was fabulous too!!!! Big Grin Cool

That was very cool, Theo. It would have been even more cool had i known you then and sat with you.

That was the first time i heard "Joel" live, and it was fabulous. "Travelogue" was another highlite for me. They blew all of the corn out of it's husks for miles around with that one! That was the only time i have seen Rob live with the band. That was fun. i had seen him back up Tonio K before, and he used to lead worship for our church in San Luis Obispo.

Yah. Wished we had known one another then. Was a fun night.

Rob led worship for y'all?

I'm hopeful that Rob will be able to attend that Saturday night in Simi Valley.

The one that sticks out to me the most is Cornerstone 90
Daniel Amos, Randy Stonehill and the Swirling Eddies.

Before the show we had a chance to go backstage for a minute
thanks to our trusty guide Podgy Gooliota....
and I remember the guys sitting around on folding chairs and a
punch bowl of M&Ms. And of course a full case of Grape Nehi
Chocolate Action Beverage.

Later we ended up outside the locked door which had a scrawny
preteen guard.... standing in line to get in. This was in the
olden days.. and here comes Rob Watson through the crowd,
and the miniscule guard tried to stop him from entering...
"I'm in the band!!!" or something to that effect was heard.

Incredible show, Daniel Amos set was pretty long and Randy's
set was simliar to the One Night in 20 Years video...same outfit.
The Eddies set was great...the dress Berger had on, I mean
wow, simply ravishing.... can you say Sandi Patti?

The encore of covers was great with Randy joining them on stage
..."We Gotta Get out Of This Place" seemed extremely fitting since
we were in some sort of 110 degree metal bunker for the last
few hours. ...........It was HOT! zibbidy bap boom blah, pow
pow pow....

I have had the pleasure of seeing them many times. The Odeum, C-Stone several times, Northwestern U and a few other places. Here are a few that stand out.

The Northwestern U show. I still have the Alarma promo poster for that one. It was in a small section of the school cafeteria. They did two shows. The stage was about 4 inches high and kept coming apart. Near the end, Terry said that they had to wrap it up because there were three people waiting for the next show. There could not have been more than 50 people there. I couldn't drive yet so, my folks took us.

Another is the year at C-Stone when it was still in Grayslake. I remember them opening with Revolution. The show started on a high note and didn't come down. It was a great memory. In the middle of that show, Terry started doing some weird thing while the other guys started a conga line that took us out of the building and back.

I have a couple not so good memories too. The first time seeing them without Jerry. I think Greg is a great addition to the band but, I really liked watching Jerry. I was bummed that he wasn't there anymore. It was good to see him with the Eddies again. Another is from the MBD tour. I was living in Boston when they came through New Hampshire. I had seen them several times in the Chicago area and in California so, I expected rabid fans to be there early waiting to get in. Just a few minutes before show time, there was only a handful of people waiting. They deserved better than that. I'm sure everyone else at that festival was at something that sucked in comparison.

Best DA concert ever Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

Without a doubt it was the 1984 tour, between Doppelganger and Vox Humana. I'm not sure how we persuaded our youth minister to book them, but DA came to my home church in Lexington, Kentucky (perhaps it was our band's constant insistance and relentless evangelizing of Horrendous/Alarma/Doppelganger.) As cool as the records were, they didn't prepare us for "The Living Room" tour.

It combined elements of the Doppelganger stage/theme with Vox Humana's Simmons (electronic) drum kit and synthy textures. The band wearing those eerie translucent masks with built-in mouth lights to open the show... Mannequins wrapped in day-glo yarn, blacklights, 3-D rear screen projection, a "cage" of lights around Terry during "Sanctuary..." Remember, kids, there was NOTHING like this in 80s Christian concerts. Most CCM bands' idea of stage production was a fog machine.

The band kicked off with "Travelogue" and never slowed down (except for a cover of "Misty" in the middle of "I Didn't Build It For Me." Crowd participation, hysterical antics & costumes, a conga line during "Dance Stop..."

By far the most moving element, though, was the use of Disney's Pinnochio as a metaphor for "becoming real" in Christ. At first, we weren't quite sure why those audio clips were playing between the songs. But by the time they played "The Double" we were all getting it. So when the last song ended, the stage went dark and "When You Wish Upon A Star" played over the P.A., I got goosebumps (still do to this day.) I decided that night that "becoming real" was what I wanted.

I've seen DA and the Eddies a few times since then, but nothing floored me like that concert. Tons more money is spent on stage production these days, but nobody ever spent more thought on how it can support a message like that.

I have only seen DA once & The Swirling Eddies played the same day.

They seemed to be having more fun on the Eddies stuff, that was a better much concert.

Wow!! That sounds like a great one. Wish I could have been there.

as the most ever present incarnation of his conscience-
Here Here - I agree.

See- I'm a bit metaphorical myself..and established my acronym after hearing the live track version of Real Girls- a bonus track on Doppleganger..

Sounds like lots of elements of the Anaheim DVD- but to have been there...
dude- you ROCK!

'90 C-stone - a great show with DA!!

Truly a highlight. Audiori covered it well -- a real fun and high energy show - with Greg getting mauled by the guys at the end of the show.

2001 C-stone - MBD

An epiphany - my first time hearing the MBD material - it was amazing... the guys decked out in black suits... it was cool.

Only thing that was a drag was they were sans T. Chandler. It was still great! Phil Madeira on hammond. Ed beating the @#$% out the skins. Greg tore it up. Terry in great voice. It was a great show. ...And so it Goes - blew me away. Who's who Here - was outrageous!!! the whole show started with Beuchners Dream coming out over the PA as the boys came out and they launched right into "This Is The One." Beautiful. Of course the show ended with Joel.

Great stuff.

My first was the '84 show in Wheaton, the combo Doppelganger tour with Vox Humana added on. 'Dance Stop' got them in trouble.

My last was c-stone 2002 and Lifest. (c-stone 2003 doesn't count because DA wasn't there.)

My favorite was c-stone 2001 with Phil Madeira. Great set with MBD tunes thrown into the mix. Rhetorically, how in the world did they survive the heat with those black suits???

I think that was my favorite show as well. Didn't the Eddies have a female performing with them wearing a coon skin cap and going by the name of "Mary Baker Eddie"?

I think Terry & Randy did a Beatles tune in the encore as well.

maybe a little strange. but remember this was '84 so DA was in the
VoX era & JerusaLem the Can't Stop Us Now era
not really all that different... the show was a little strange DA was set
up on the Floor in front of the stage & Jerusalem was set on the stage?
it made for a very short intermission Cool just a tear down of DA and
Jerusalem rocked the place down... Great night, Great Show.
