The New Cars! I had the awesomely fun experience of seeing these rock legends at the Tulalip Amphitheater with my friend Kathryn. It rained a bit, but the show was very special indeed. The margaritas did flow and the band rocked. And at the end, there was even a rainbow.
There were a few great musical surprises, too. Todd Rundgren (replacement for the absent Ric Ocasek) is legendary, and I heard that The New Cars were going to play some old Todd classics along with the Cars catalog. They did I Saw The Light, a classic number shown in the video below. But what really blew my mind was when they did Open My Eyes by The Nazz, a very early Todd band that was kind of like an American response to Cream and The Yardbirds. Unfortunately I did not capture it, as my battery had died. I do present to you, however, I Saw The Light...
