#5 ProfessorDrums, I was behind you in Sect 112, Row 6, seat 11. I was one of the few girls seen at the concert!

Hey Kj One of my favorite DVD selections is the soundboard boot from S&A's "Oh Atlanta" Ghost Of A Chance & The Trees are so well executed & recorded, as well as Red Barchetta. I always catch myself nudging the remote volume up into the 12-1:00 O clock range

Back to Rush swag- i do have to promote a recent purchase from the Indy show. I picked up the long sleeve black CA "trucker" tour shirt (i read somewhere a lot of the crew wear this shirt, not why i bought it, but a neat factoid) and it's super comfortable and the design is unique and cool. Washes well - only problem is it would be too hot to wear to a concert. I wore my Test for Echo tye-dye short sleeve tshirt and was sweating bullets (cuz i'm a Rushchick that rocks extremely hard). That's why i'm opting for a tank for Cleveland. (I can just hear all the groans from the guys right about now - have to talk about style on a Rush blog-the boys don't care, why should we). Jim, you're right, and you can be sure i'll be wearing a big one that night :)

jiminseattle, I'm too old to do anything on youtube. Besides I haven't pulled my drums out of my closet for years. Raising kids, taking care of husband etc... Well maybe one day I'll dust off the Tamas and the Sabians and blow the neighbors doors off!! Maybe I could start a Rush cover band in the retirement home. That would blow the lid off of the place.

anyway, Kj, I think your sparkley shirt wil be great. You wear whatever makes you feel like rocking! All that you can do is wish them well. I heard that from the three wisest men that ever rocked this sometimes cruel and cold planet! Sorry, sometimes I just get a little carried away. Anyway, hope that answers your question. talk to all you guys later, hopefully on tonights open thread. Its the closest thing I can get to RUSH until Nov 30.

#86 - i hear you. When i was getting my wings, those are precisely the songs i listened to back to back FULL VOLUME. Love those 3-in-a-row.

I saw this as an opportunity with so many chicks chiming in to ask the "fashion" questions. Lisa - drummer-awesome! I think most of us Rushchicks can rock our jeans - i'm in my 40's & rock my True Religions as well. To answer a previous post, my hubby isn't a Rush fan :(, but he supports my addiction so can't complain there. My brother is my "Rush partner".

Kj, I can't attest to being able to spiral the football, but I do play the drums. I started playing in the band in grade 5. I was the only girl drum player, and I was teased by the other drum players , who were all boys! I'm no pratt, but girls can rock just as good as guys, thank god for womens lib. HA HA! I will be wearing my bright red CA t shirt with a pair of button fly 501 levis . My jeans of choice since 1976. I know that makes me sound old, but I can still rock a pair of jeans. Don't you think that Ged still rocks in his jeans? sexy, for an old guy! HA HA!! Lets meet up later on the Toronto open thread. Its time to ROCK!!!!
