Bye bye Eugene

Our swing state tour of 2004 is in its phase of resembling an MLB playoff tour, having just left Kansas City and arriving, 10 years ago today, in St. Louis.  William Tyler has returned to the lineup, and in the standup slot, we bid farewell to Eugene Mirman and welcome Trevor Rosenthal fan (like me, he goes for all the players with Jewish names) Todd Barry.  James sings “Psycho” in honor of the late Janet Leigh, and David Kilgour–the only non-YLT singer in the combo–takes the lead on half a dozen numbers.  The next day we caravan to Ted Drewes, where David waits too long to test his concrete’s non-spillability, creating a bit of a mess and a wonderful photo op in the parking lot.
