LOCATION: Lexington, KY
LINEUP: Karin, Linford, Jack, Dale
REVIEW BY: various listees
I have been out of the discussion loop for a while, and I'm not sure if anyone has posted any news about the Lexington show. I went to it on Sat. night and sat on a blanket and watched Over the Rhine set up their instruments on a grassy knoll above the crowd. It was a very casual kind of concert, as there were kids running around behind the behind the band and sitting on the bronze horses that are scattered throughout the park. Linford encouraged other audience members to get up and run around on the grassy area behind the band. They had the same set list as their last 2 Lexington appearances. The only real surprise was when they began playing LIKE A RADIO which I haven't heard them do live in a long time. They played as a 4 piece with Dale Baker driving in from North Carolina to play drums/percussion. Karin said Jack was moving his family over to Scotland. In July they will be moving to a small village of 300 people. Karin said the reason for the move will be so Jack's son doesn't grow up talking like a midwesterner. Anyway, Karin said Jack will still play some dates with them, but this is the first I've heard about Jack moving. Does anyone know if he is leaving the group or not? Is there any official word I've missed?
