My first Earth Day was memorable for a number of ways, but mostly for being the place I met my first long term girlfriend. Chris and I met up with another group of people he knew from TinyTim, and Heather had come with them. I asked her out at the end of the day. The concert was pretty great too. We missed Shawn Colvin and The Mavericks, but got there in time to see Jon Stewart introduce Brownstone, and their first song was an Eagles cover. The other hosts were Levar Burton & Martha Quinn, and we hung out until Natalie Merchant was done, leaving before Mary Chapin Carpenter and Kenny Loggins finished off the day. Reportedly this was the 2nd live performance from Natalie Merchant’s new band including awesome guitarist Jen Turner.
The whole show is up as a stream at C-SPAN.
