• Rush Concert, 5/7/2013, 1st Mariner Arena, Baltimore, MD

    Finally saw Rush for the first time on their Clockwork Angels tour. It was quite the show, as they featured a huge screen behind with a number of mini 'movies' to add some humor and context to some of the songs (deep lyrics are the norm when it comes to Rush) as well as the fireworks and light show. My eyes were naturally fixed on the drum set most of the time, and the jumbo screen allowed for plenty of views of Neil in action.

    They know how to rock.

    As the music goes...highlights for me were mostly during the hits that they played (definitely don't know the later stuff like I do the first five or six albums)

    The Big Money: not a song near the top of my favorites, but it was amazing live. Has it all, a complicated bass line, technical drums, and great guitar. (well...which is pretty much all of their songs) The best part was when the song hit the small break and the stage went black...followed by Alex coming in with the final guitar outtro...which was incredible.

  • Five Favorite Rush Songs

    OK, before I write, I am not sure why I picked Rush. While I like them, I don't think of them as a favorite band. And honestly, I hated the song Tom Sawyer when it first came out and I still do. Also, I have never heard much of Test for Echo or Vapor Trails. Actually, there are several Rush albums I have never heard in their entirety, but I know the "hits" off of them. OK, enough chatter. Here is my list. I think many Rush purists are going to be upset. I will be really surprised if someone endorse this list as their favorites as well.

    1. Distant Early Warning
    2. Show Don't Tell
    3. Stick It Out
    4. Subdivisions
    5. Force Ten

    Honorable Mention: La Villa Strangiato - This could probably be in the Top 5 if it were a bit shorter.
