Critic's Notebook:

Last Night: The Holy Triumvirate, uh, I mean, Rush @ US Airways Center

The Crowd: Ponytailed prog aficionados, a few scattered post-rock types, short-sporting dads and uncles, a group of ladies flashing a homemade sign reading: "#Mythbusters: Girls Do Love Rush." Oh, and lots and lots of folks in Rush shirts.

Overheard: "Someone must be reprinting classic Rush shirts, because I saw a guy wearing a pristine Moving Pictures tee, and I know he wasn't there."

Choice Lyrics: "The truth is contrary," from "The Wreckers," and "It's really just a question of your honesty," from the most "hell yeah"-inspiring "Spirit of the Radio."

Questionable Choice, Dude: The guy taking his Coldstone Creamery "Love It"-sized waffle cone into the crowded bathroom, holding it in one hand while handling his business with the other.
