12/14 Baltimore MD

Recommended Posts

I'm here, although the stream is coming and going.

Baltimore Claymates handing out cards at the door telling people not to clap after Quiana's song, during the speech, but instead to stand up and ring the bells attached to the cards. Cards also say no flash photography on them.

Venue looks full - capacity is about 2534.

"Crowd is awsome" according to certer.

Apparently, the StreamGuys are messing around with the server that runs the CV cellstream, so it's been going in and out this evening - if it won't stay connected, I'm going to bail. Gotta go at 10:00 anyway to watch Michael Vartan on "Alias". (Jennifer Garner, what were you thinking when you gave up Michael Vartan for Ben Affleck?)

Well, the CH sounds like they are having a real party - discussong shoes and proper attire and possibly getting assualted by people if they accidently flash Clay - now I am not sure if that was camera talk of clothing talk.

An usher was hassling one of the cellcerters about her phone earlier.

Concert is starting with the recording...Enjoy the show. The holiday season starts right now.

Christmastime Overture, and screams for the appearance of the lead angel.

Cell cert is a little echoee, but I can hear the cellcerter enjoying themselves quite clearly - Hmmmm - they loved the ending of sleigh ride, that is for sure.

And now my favorite, Jingle bells, who'd a thunk it.

Crowd was clapping along to the beginning of Sleigh Ride. It doesn't sound like it's clipping along quite as fast tonight as sometimes.

Jingle Bells, as sung from the bottom of a pool. :P Screaming again at the groovin' section.

Hey all you names down there at the bottom of the page - hop in and post your thoughts on the show, even if you're not listening to a stream. Waves to you all!

cellcerter? saying it is awesome or associate ->

WTF? is this about handing out Jingle bells and asking people to jingle and sing instead of Clap - I hate the audience participation crap. - but that is me, you can feel differently.

Season for Romance. It'll get you if you give it half a chance.

Yeah, the audience participation thing... Good luck with that.... (Although I bet the jingle bells will make nice little concert souvenuirs.)

A hallmark near me went out of business and they had a big sale one year near Christmas, I am still giving away the things I got from them. Shhh, don't tell my sister. She has not come here yet, must be having a life. Oh, On topic., I got lots of Jingle bells and have been giving them out for christmas for a while.

Ooops, left the dog outside a leetle too long, it is wind chill 8 tonight. SHe is jumping all over me now, must be trying to get warm.

I can occasionally hear the cellcerter's husband chuckle. It seems kind of strange to hear a male voice in the audience portion of the stream.

The Christmas Song, and Andy is getting in his jazzy solo.

They are planning some sort of tribute at Raleigh as well. Sigh

I thought that show "can you top this" bombed and went off the air - now it is happening at concerts. Well, I will proudly state that the tribute at my concerts is the fewest number of flashes, and leave it at that.

Not getting any new details during the half-time report yet.

The concensus seems to be that Clay is in really good voice tonight.
