I've been working on next week's sun/moon/eclipse theme. Thank you for the suggestions, Reno. Others certainly are welcome!

I've done a couple of shows like that, with the theme of "It's all about me."

I think I need to look at one focused on band names, some time. Maybe a setlist with all animal names, or something like that.

I've suggested this before, but you could do a show with all bands featuring numerals in their names, from 0 (e.g. Remy Zero) to Bram Van 3000 or whatever.

I'd really like to arrange it so the "band numbers" are in sequence.

Too late, she's already booked for a cruise

As for songs, don't forget about 'Earth, Sun, Moon' - Love and Rockets

But ... but how can I say no to a song that's accrued this kind of acclaim? Really, now ...

Oh absolutely, it needs to be done in numerical order, either ascending or descending (countdown style)

I'm attracted to countdown style, because it'd be more of a challenge to get the timing right, so the show reaches the "1" song and still concludes on time.
