on july 13th I drove to Kansas City to see the TAAB 2013 tour show for the 2nd time. the band and ian were just as polished and tight a they were in Tulsa last fall, maybe even a bit better. seems as though they played for about 15 mins. longer this time around. also the Kauffman center was a fab. place to see a concert (maybe the best I've been to). as I was leaving all I heard was words of praise from everyone about how good the show was. because I had become more familiar with TAAB 2 that part of the show I enjoyed more this go around. as I was going towards the theatre I noticed the infamous "westboro Baptist church" outside protesting. I asked why they would be protesting the concert?? one of the adult members ...a loudly proclaimed..."ian Anderson lyrics promote fag behavior"...pretty silly because I'm quite sure they would not know a fag from a fountain pen.....maybe it was that "swing it far" song...ha...ha...ha....jsm
It would make me want to walk by with my husband or something and have him say, "Wow...I was straight when I went in there...not sure what happened."
But seriously...as if we needed more ammo to dislike those people...
