Two Redheads...Two nights. Two redheads.
Saw Kathy Griffin in concert at the Performing Arts Center. It was a sell out crowd.
I like that.
Other talented people will book into a city that supports the arts.
The night before, up in Myrtle Beach at the House of Blues, I stood in line for a long time to get inside for Bonnie Raitt. Also a packed "house."
Two entirely different performances for two entirely different audiences.
Miss Raitt truly seemed to enjoy the standing audience and the, well, standing ovations it gave her fine singing. A sign was posted "No cameras. No cell phones taking pictures."
First time I've seen cells banned.
And security was very active, appearing almost as quickly as the phones - and a few cameras - were raised.
Just the opposite at the PAC...Kathy came out posing and encouraging her fans to snap pictures.
I even used flash. Yikes.
Her humor was scathing and topical. She started with comments on "The Balloon Boy" as THAT story was still unfolding.
Well, maybe not for Wolf Blitzer.
