What's the Next Concert You're Attending?

Recommended Posts

What a show!
Kevin Gates was unbelievable!
Best of all, got to meet him and he recorded a video shout-out to my son, who couldn't be there as he is attending Youth Challenge Academy.
Super-cool guy.

Most of my recent concerts have been small ones involving friends and whatnot...VUM, Miranda Lee Richards, etc...but now some big ones are coming up.

Saturday March 5: Johnny Marr @ El Rey Theatre

March 8: Animal Collective @ Fonda Theatre

March 11: Loreena McKennitt @ Theatre at the Ace Hotel

March 15, 17, and 19: Bruce Springsteen & the E Street band @ LA Sports Arena 

March 24: David Gilmour @ Hollywood Bowl

March 26: Wolfmother @ Fonda Theatre

April 15: Iron Maiden @ LA Forum

I feel like the Concert Year has finally begun in earnest. Unfortunately, I have to miss tonight's Lucinda Williams concert at UCLA due to work. :(

David Gilmour at Hollywood Bowl sounds like an amazing night!  Didn't know you were still such a big Springsteen fan, Strider, 3 nights - wow!

Much like Jimmy Page at the Whiskey in 1969, I have had to curtail my Springsteen shows from three to one due to illness.

Sorry to hear that!  Hope you feel better soon, Strider!  Tony Stewart was at last night's Boss show.

Tony Stewart the race car driver? We are going to the St. Patrick's Day show.

Yep, he posted a picture on twitter.  Have a great show - should be a special one, being St. Patty's Day!

Hope you are on the mend, Strider! :wave:

Excited about going to the New Orleans Jazz Fest in April featuring many artists including Stevie Wonder, Buddy Guy and Neil Young.

May brings Bad Company and Joe Walsh on their "One Hell of a Night" tour.

I'm going to see Yonatan Gat this Friday night at the Happy Dog in Lakewood. Should be interesting, check out the dude's live shows, worth seeing him live. 

 

I'm also finally seeing the Eagles of Death Metal on Saturday, May 28 in Columbus. I missed them last time around when they played in East Cleveland at the grog shop in September, so I'm glad I can catch them this time around. I'm going with my girlfriend and it'll be a fun drive down there to watch the band and explore the city a little bit  :D

I like them a lot; have fun! And cool to Type O above; I'm not familiar with the artist but what a totally cool moment!

I'm going to see DMB next month! :)

Thank you Virginia! Yes, I have seen moe. before. But the last time was around 10 years ago, so when my friend offered to hook me up I couldn't say no.

Very cool for TypeO, although I am also unfamiliar with Kevin Gates.

I do enjoy jam bands; I have a moe channel on pandora :)

Thanks, I had a great time.

He's pretty hard gangsta-type rap, but he seems to have more intelligent lyrics than a lot of others, and the tunes are pretty catchy.
There was a surprisingly large proportion of white people in attendance, although it would be a pretty safe bet I was probably the oldest, for sure, LOL.

Essentially, much like Snoop Dogg on Doggy Style over 20 years ago, he creates really groove-y songs that sound awesome with a nice buzz.
What I find interesting is he's been putting out mixtapes since about 2010, many of which are exceptional, particularly in comparison to actual, signed releases by other artists, yet this album Islah is his first actual album.
His mixtape from last year, Luca Brasi II, is incredibly solid with a LOT of great cuts, and holds its own against any of the top rap albums released last year.

I readily admit to a certain degree of entertainment I derive from the looks I get from young black kids when I drive up banging his tunes. LOL
