A huge fan of this genre of music (alt-country, roots, americana, what-have-you), I was excited to see my first House show. The band did not disappoint, amazing musicians all. And Corrie Feuerstein as the tumbleweed was double-plus fantastisch. The story? Well, not so much. It seemed like, with the number of tunes included, that the story was just time filler in between songs. There were some funny bits throughout the "book" portion, Anderson Lawfer's host had me laughing out loud, but I found myself wanting them to hurry up and get to the next song already. I would love to see a concert with this cast as the band and on this beautifully realized set. And this is where my experience seems to jibe with nearly all the House reviews I've read -- I enjoyed myself immensely, but found the story somewhat lacking.
