St. Louis, MO.  Dhani says that if anyone can tell us how many bricks there are in the city of St. Louis, they get a free cd.

    Saw you last night in St. Louis. (I’m the nerdy groupie who wanted your autograph. ha!)
    Absolutely fantastic show. Hands down THE best show I have ever been too. I choose my shows carefully to. So interactive and lively and just good ol fashioned fun. You sounded perfect and it was so precious to see you sending good vibrations to your baby through that guitar and banjo. Sound carries through water so well…what a musical baby you will have! You are such a trooper to give your fans such great shows over and over, baby and GD and all.
    I moved here from the PNW six years ago and I miss the ocean and forests and the secret still things and feel like your music just speaks to that longing. You leave room for your listeners own interpretation of your songs too and I so appreciate that.
    Thanks for a glorious night of music and fun! You are looking healthy and bright!

    Love, Josie Beck

    p.s. your bricks comment-SO funny! I thought the same thing when I moved here. Love all the urban decay around here!

    Also, my husband took some pictures at the show and we would love to send them to you if you want them! He isn’t very experienced or anything but just enjoys messing around with his new camera. Got a few good ones I think. Just let me know where to send them if you want em!
