I have to go in to work soon but want to thank you Michael for filling the hole in the universe where Nick Lowe doesn't get played.

Baby were you with me at The Troubadour for that show?
Avatar Sat. 6/10/17 11:37am Michael Shelley:

Nick @ the Troub - no! Good?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/10/17 11:39am Listener Baby:

It was. Soft and mellow. Same show I guess you saw in NYC. Bill Kirchin, etc. I had all the tours leading up to that one, pretty huge change in sound. But fun, as always with that cat.
Avatar    Sat. 6/10/17 11:39am myron feld:

Listener Baby: I saw In and Of Itself on a different evening than Michael did, and that's my best guess, but it's still quite an impressive memory trick for Del Gaudio to watch as the audience enters and hands in their cards, then remember everyone's face with his/her card. And yes, he correctly identified me as well.
Avatar Sat. 6/10/17 11:40am Michael Shelley:

Agree - he just does it
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/10/17 11:40am Listener Baby:

Does he hold the other halves of the cards while he's doing this?
Avatar Sat. 6/10/17 11:42am Michael Shelley:

no
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/10/17 11:45am Listener Baby:

Yes, good memory trick for sure. Bout a 100 people?? Nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 6/10/17 11:52am Listener Baby:

You know, dude could have an ear piece, and he could be getting cued by someone watching a video of you kids taking the cards? If he's nailing this 100%, I would guess that's his way. I will let this go now.
Avatar Sat. 6/10/17 11:54am Michael Shelley:

He also doesnt know who will stand - so he has to know them all

magic is a con, but it's also a job. these guys know what they're doing, and it's part of their job to know their audience. as soon as you say "there's no possible way he could know that" - that's when they've got you hooked.
