And they did play it, to start the second encore! Just James & Andrew came out, played "Worms" then the rest of the band came out ad Andrew stayed up front for "Star of the County Down." The second encore continued with Rainy Night in Soho, then ended with Fiesta.
It was an odd show, somehow. Not sold out, not even close, and signs up saying no moshing, no surfing, etc. It was definitely an older crowd, with only a few in costume. The brilliance of the Pogues was evident from the start, when they all came out wearing Mariachi costumes! Everything was good, but I feel that the energy didn't go to a next level until the playing of "Repeal of the Licensing Laws" in the middle of the set. Shane & Spider were interacting quite a bit with the folks in the pit (I was in the back of the pit). Spider threw out handfuls of candy at points towards the end.
Guess I should post this in the West Coast thread...
