Last night, I went to see a Rush tribute band called Counterparts.  They live here in Nashville, only play about 3 shows a year, and are incredible.  It’s the funniest thing to see all these goofy Rush fanatics filling Exit/In, drinking cheap beer and air drumming everything.  Don’t get me wrong, though.  I love Red Barchetta, LimelightFreewill as much as any prog rock dude.  In fact, I got a few interesting looks for going alone, standing where I could scrutinize every move “Neil” made, and (especially) for showing up wearing these:

awesome, right?

Probably a little ridiculous, but really?!  They had lasers, fog, and a time machine on stage… I think I’m good.  In fact, I think Geddy would be quite pleased.

  1. I have these! They hurt my toe a little but other than that you can wear them all day.
