- Kurt Vile and the Violators & Jessica Pratt,  December 7 at Canton Hall , Dallas TX

He came in my work recently...he's in town recording his new album. Really nice and down-to-earth...almost shy. I was playing a Zep bootleg (Ft. Worth 1975) and he and his buddies were digging it.

Enjoy. I picked up a bootleg of a show from Oz. Was looking forward to it big time but was left very underwhelmed. Only the Animals songs you stated were the highlight. Otherwise, snoozer...  Hope it’s a good show for you! 

Thanks Walter. I'm sure I will enjoy the show, there's a big difference to listening to a few bootlegs than actually being there. Besides I've paid £200 for my ticket (the most I have ever paid for a single ticket) that's face value not some secondary tout/scalper price. So I'll get that negative vibe out of my head and  'Have Me a Real Good Time'.

Very cool ! I don't know much about him, but The War on Drugs is such a great band, I figured it would be totally worth while checking him out live. 

Is it cool if I share that story on my Facebook music page?

Saw Neil Young last night.  He played for two hours by himself, sitting on a stool with his guitars and pianos surrounding him.  It was almost like a Storyteller's session.  Lots of between song banter, jokes,....typical Neil.    Here's the setlist, minus a couple new songs I never caught the title of that were quite good.....

On the Way Home

I am a Child

Broken Arrow (Whoa !...He hung up his eyelids and ran down the hall  :thumbsup::notworthy:)

Are You Ready For the Country ?

Only Love Can Break Your Heart

Cowgirl in the Sand

There's a World

Needle and the Damage Done

Ohio (electric solo on the white hollow body Gretsch)

After the Goldrush

Out on the Weekend

Love is a Rose

Heart of Gold

Nothing from Harvest Moon or Rust Never Sleeps, which was kind of surprising.  They were being real pricky about cameras and recording, but I snuck a few in....Cigar store indian in tow, as always.

Sure. I don't think he'll mind.

Every year my city has a festival that runs for a week. The street has over 20 bars/pubs/clubs on it, as well an outdoor stage. Every night there are several bands playing and the entire street gets blocked off from traffic and drinking can occur on the streets until 3am. One ticket admission get access to the music and all the clubs/bars/pubs.  The Festival has been running for over 30 years. My birthday occurs right in the middle of this festival, so I've been going to this since 1997. This year Our Lady Peace, Trooper, I Mother Earth, Finger 11, Arkells, and Classified are the main headliners.

I'm seeing Our Lady Peace on July 26 and Arkells on July 30.

Two people I want to see that I haven't managed to get to...yet.  Have fun!!

 

Gary Clark was doing a free show in Brooklyn when I was in NYC a few weeks ago, but... Brooklyn is so far away from Midtown :D

^ ^ Very cool shows, guys! Amy Mann is always great as is Gary Clark Jr.

Secretly just set up a trip to see John Butler Trio+ at The Tabernacle in Atlanta in December for Mrs Walter and I. Haven’t seen him since 2014 when he dedicated a song (“Spring To Come”) to Mrs Walter, which was her fight song during chemo treatment, after telling him the significance.  Been traveling to see him for many years. Doing the preshow meet/greet/private short performance as well. Can’t wait!

A friend of mine went to Gary's Brooklyn show and he said he just ripped it up on the guitar.  This will be the first time I'm seeing him and looking so forward to it.

Thanks for the comments as well Walter and enjoy the John Butler Trio!!!  I've heard great things about his music but don't know it well.

Yeah...sooooo far away. 😜

You blew it, ebk. Gary Clarke is worth making the extra effort to see. He, indeed, rips it up on guitar. Enjoy the show Super Dave! \m/

Yeah, I've seen Aimee even more than I have seen Robert Plant...over 50 times.

Have a good meet n greet with JBT.

Would be cool to see Aimee in a bigger venue like the Greek. Let me know if she has the string quartet. Saw the Smashing Pumpkins last night at the Forum. They did Stairway to Heaven, complete with "Does anyone remember laughter?" Great show, but kinda long, they played for three hours!

Will do.

i saw the Smashing Pumpkins was coming when I went to the ELO show at the Forum a few weeks ago. I should like the Smashing Pumpkins. They have a lot of elements I usually like in a band. When I saw them when "Gish" came out I could see they were influenced by Jane's Addiction. But they never clicked for me the way Jane's did. I still like the first couple of albums but as Billy's voice and attitude got worse and worse, I gave up on the band. Last time I saw them live was at the Tibetan Freedom Concert in SF's Golden Gate Park in 1996.

You tube is filled with Pumpkins "Stairway" covers as the band has been doing it all tour.

Was the Forum filled or could you see swaths of empty seats?

It was packed. I know sales have been slow elsewhere, but I guess they have a lot of fans in LA. They also filmed the show, so look for the 'Live in LA' DVD soon I guess. I was actually dragged to this concert, I was never a fan, but I gotta say, they put on a great show, the video stuff was fantastic

I saw them just before the wheel came off with Chamberlin, etc and the o.d./death of the keyboardist. They were fantastic. But when I saw the fragmented versions of SP, they were nowhere the same. Is it the original 4? Or is Darcy still MIA?
