This was my second time getting to see Mark, and dude does not disappoint. A beautiful night overall, despite the already mentioned super-odd/conversational crowd and the obnoxious drunk girl next to us in the balcony who spilled her beer on my shoes in between professing her love to Mark loudly between songs. hmm

Any chance anyone failed to honor Mark's wishes and recorded things? Those new ones were beautiful.

Looks like this is the new live album, do you think they edited all the commentary from Mark?
