Goo Goo Dolls, Saturday night at the Schaeffer Eye Center Crawfish Boil

Is it possible to be both energetic and disinterested? That's the attitude Goo Goo Dolls lead singer John Rzeznick had throughout the band's closing performance.

Rzeznick never lacked for energy in his vocals or guitar-playing, never slogged through a song, but he also never did much to make you think he was all that happy to be on stage.

That's a pity, because the rest of the New York rockers did appear happy to be there, and played like it.

Besides expected numbers like "Black Balloon," "Slide," "Here Is Gone" and "Name," the band threw in some new selections like the radio-friendly "The Sweetest Lie" and "Home," both of which were fresh and interesting.

If bands feed on crowds, the Dolls had a feast. The crowd was huge, and receptive. But everybody has an off night, and if Saturday night was an off night for Rzeznick, it wasn't that bad, even if a solid two nights of musical goodness did deserve a better send-off.
