Hello:

I did not attend a concert but I tried to watch a Mariah Carrey concert being broadcast on Much More Music last eve...

I heard some tunes but then I switched to another station..I switched back to her concert and heard VISON OF LOVE..there appeared to be something wrong with her ear piece..I remember hearing her sing this soon after it was released. She had an edge then that is somewhat still there...I also heard HERO and WE BELONG TOGETHER...

Juliet :coffee:

Went and saw Classic Albums Live: Led Zep - Physical Graffiti this past Sat. night and it was very good. They had up to 9 musicians playing at any given time, but they recreated the songs perfectly (even fading them out, when required). Four guitartists were used for Ten Years Gone. Then they did encores after: Moby Dick, How Many More Times, The Lemon Song, Communication Breakdown, Rock and Roll, and Whole Lotta Love. Very nice.

Glad I finally made it out to Shakori Hills. I've been meaning to go for quite some time now but for various reasons have never made it. It was such wonderful weather here Saturday and now that I'm closer to that location there was no way to turn it down. It happens twice a year (Spring and Fall) and started as an off shoot of the original Grassroots Festival that is put on by Donna the Buffalo in upstate New York.

AC/DC at Birmingham last night - what a fantastic gig it was too. Hard to believe their ages when you see the energy that goes into it, especially from Angus - just amazing.

I went to Glasgow's Rhythm and Blues Festival this weekend. Among the different bands I saw was The Bottleneckers which was really great!

Tim Easton

Berkeley Cafe

Great show last night with Tim backed by a full band (including Alex Livingstone on bass from Grand Champeen). This was my first time seeing him with a band so it was quite the different live experience. We still got some some acoustic numbers from him with and without the band, including an encore done from down in the audience.

Boot-Led-Zeppelin 9 May

It was amazing, the singer sounded so much like Robert and he used quotes from the Zepp performances which added to the quality.

:beer: MIKE SANCHEZ AND THE PORTIONS ,

at the Robin club last night. Usual high energy performance from Mike and the band, who will be touring Germany and Switzerland next week.

Any of our members who are in those localities could do a lot worse than go along and see how early rock n roll should be done :wave:

Don Dixon solo and Mitch Easter's four piece combo followed by the duo Jews & Catholics at the Garage in Winston-Salem. All of this was proceeded by a discussion of the recording of R.E.M.'s Mumur by co-producers Don Dixon and Mitch Easter moderated by Parke Puterbaugh from Rolling Stone.

Busy night last night but unfortunately I only caught the last 7 or 8 songs of the Gourds' set due to night classes. A little Gourds is better than no Gourds at all.

Looks like you have a great local music scene there in the Triangle!

Yes, we do. Believe it or not, those three shows just barely scratch the surface. The National were also playing in town last night as well as Bonnie "Prince" Billy who was in Carrboro. I feel fortunate that there's usually no shortage of music to hear. I just hate it when there's so much going on at one time that it makes it impossible to catch it all. Thankfully that only seems to happen once in a great while.
