2005 set lists, Remembering IMAC August 9, 2011

While rearranging CDs in my room, which I’ve done here and there since Sunday night, I found a couple of set lists I transcribed while at two concerts in 2005.  The concerts were at the IMAC (Inter-Media Art Center) in Huntington; my first and second shows there, respectively.  I was a semi-regular at IMAC until December 2008.  Six months later, the theater closed.  I thought it was temporary at the time, but it was quite permanent.  In November 2009, the executive director, Michael Rothbard, suddenly passed away.

The first set list was from the Rippingtons early show on August 6, 2005.  Russ Freeman was, of course, on guitars; Bill Heller was on the keyboard; Dave Karasony was on drums; Scott Breadman handled percussion; Kim Stone played bass; and Eric Marienthal was on saxophone.  Here is that set list:

After the show, David B. and I posed for this picture (I weighed about 60 pounds more than I do now):

Unfortunately, I didn’t start this blog, which began the age of multi-photo concert recaps, until April 2008.  But I did go to a handful of shows at IMAC between April and December:
David Sanborn – May 3, 2008 (7PM show)
RnR: Rick Braun & Richard Elliot – June 6, 2008 (7PM show)
Acoustic Alchemy – June 21, 2008
Guitars and Saxes – October 25, 2008 (9:30 PM show)
Peter White Christmas – December 12, 2008 (9:30 PM show)
David Benoit/Charlie Brown Christmas – December 19, 2008

For me, IMAC lives on through these posts.
