What's the Next Concert You're Attending?

Recommended Posts

Just what I was thinking.

It can be a completely unknown band (or solo artist) performing in a pub and it's still a concert. Hell, they could be performing on the street or to no audience at all and they'd still be "in concert". Whether or not the material is original has nothing whatsoever do with the definition of the word.

To be honest Jahfin, if somebody asked you what the first "concert" you went to, or how many "concerts" you have seen in your life. Are saying that you would include every street performance you paused at on the way to the store, or every bar band that was playing Mississippi Queen while you and your friends were playing a game of pool?

Yes, I would.

What I was questioning was the use of a term. I don't consider seeing a cover band at the HOB a concert IMO.

In this case your opinion is wrong, no matter the venue or even if it's a cover band it's still a concert. That's not a matter of opinion, it's fact. Perhaps you should familiarize yourself with the actual definition of the word:

con·cert/ˈkänsərt/

Noun: A musical performance given in public, typically by several performers or of several separate compositions. Verb: Arrange (something) by mutual agreement or coordination

WILCO WEEK IS FINALLY HERE!

January 24: Wilco @ Hollywood Palladium

January 25: Wilco @ Wiltern Theatre

January 27: Wilco @ Los Angeles Theatre

Support Act: White Denim

I've been waiting for this week ever since the new Wilco album was released and the LA tour dates announced. Along with Radiohead, PJ Harvey, Aimee Mann, Black Crowes, and a handful of others, Wilco is one of those post-1990 bands I always see whenever they tour. They always sound great and have interesting setlists. And they play a long show.

This week marks a landmark, as I will be seeing my 20th Wilco show, joining the list of acts that I have seen 20 or more times:

Rolling Stones

Robert Plant

Jimmy Page(including Led Zeppelin)

John Paul Jones(including Led Zeppelin)

David Bowie

Bruce Springsteen

Bob Dylan

Neil Young, in all his various guises

Jeff Beck

Buddy Guy

B.B. King

Taj Mahal

Richie Havens

Ramones

Tom Petty

Van Halen

Blue Öyster Cult

Iron Maiden

Elvis Costello

Prince

The Cure

U2

Social Distortion

X

Black Flag

Keith Morris

Redd Kross

Sonic Youth

Thelonious Monster

Jane's Addiction

Fishbone

Red Hot Chili Peppers

Beastie Boys

Nick Cave

John Prine

Neil Finn

Robyn Hitchcock

Aimee Mann

Jon Brion

Michael Penn

Fiona Apple

Steve Earle

Lucinda Williams

Beck

Stereolab

PJ Harvey

Sleater-Kinney

Moving Units

Darker My Love

Sean and Sara Watkins(including Nickel Creek)

My friend surprised me with the Palladium show tix as a Christmas present. The Palladium acoustics suck, but it's general admission and it has sentimental value to me, as it is the site of my very first concert.

The Wiltern has much better sound, is also GA, and is a beautiful Art Deco Theatre. I'll do my usual ticket routine for that show.

I'm not sure if I'll go to the third show yet. The Los Angeles Theatre is a gorgeous movie palace built in the heyday of Downtown LA in the 30s. As there is a day between the 2nd and 3rd shows, I'll have a couple days to think about it.

Lots to choose from this week (including Donna the Buffalo on Thursday and the Old 97s with Those Darlins on Friday) but I'll most likely pass on those two for Local Band/Local Beer on Thursday and Megafaun w/ Mount Moriah on Saturday. Kathleen Edwards will be in town early next week as well. I've been wanting to see her for years so I'm not going to pass up the opportunity this time.

Going to see Deep Purple in 2 weeks.

Anyone know what version the current line-up resembles? As I recall there are 3 versions of the band according to who was in the band at the time.

First week of March I will be going to see Brit Floyd. Currently made up of several (?) members of The Australian Pink Floyd Show. So far anything I have read about them indicates they have put together a better show than TAPFS.

What great selections some of you have in your area. I am pleased we get what we get.

You might want to try their website, the lineup of the current band is listed there.

Kathleen Edwards with Hannah Georgas at the Cat's Cradle in Carrboro, NC. I've never seen Kathleen so I'm looking very forward to my show with her tonight. Peter Blackstock (formerly of No Depression magazine) has a real nice write up on her that appears in the online version of Durham's Independent Weekly that you can read here.

Thanks Jahfin.

I have been to their site previously but was still unsure which version of the band I was going to see. I'm guessing the current members are closest to the Mark ll members. Not so much the "Hush" line up as the "Smoke on the Water" line up.

Just saw that tickets go on sale Friday for Tool in ATL February 8.

Oh yeah.

Hopefully, after Friday I'll be posting the good news.

Took a little longer than I hoped, but it's ON!

Gonna be at The Arena At Gwinnett Center above ATL next Wednesday night for Tool!

I am so psyched!

Last time I saw them was Dec. 7, 1996, so yeah, I'd say I'm due!

Unfortunately, all the setlists I've seen indicate they aren't playing Rosetta Stoned.

However, it is the last show of this particular tour, so ya never know when they might feel generous.

At the very least, I'm hoping they add The Pot to the encore as they did on one of the previous shows in the past couple weeks.

On most of the shows, the encore has been Aenima alone.

One can certainly hope.

If you're close enough, yell it out to do it - they do listen and especially on the last night might play it. It worked for me at an STP New Years show once - or at least I would like to think so! ;)

Enjoy your show!

Saw Jane's was playing the Tabernacle in ATL - is anyone going, I would've loved to!!!!!!!

The Kevn Kinney Band w/ Lynn Blakey and Ecki Heins at the Local 506 in Chapel Hill tonight. Kevn's band includes Drivin' n' Cryin' bassist Tim Nielsen, guitarist Audley Freed (Cry of Love, Black Crowes) and drummer Anton Fier (Golden Palominos, Bob Mould). I haven't seen Audley play since I saw Cry of Love perform at the Attic in Greenville, NC way back in the early 90s. Dag was the opening band that night.

Juliet, did you get to Deep Purple? I had the pleasure a couple of weeks ago, thoroughly enjoyed it. Sat right in front of Steve Morse.

Got tickets to Brit Floyd. Opinions I have heard so far are that they are better than The Australian Pink Floyd Show!! I am given to understand that they have some former members of TAPFS. Luckily I will get to form my own opinion.

If anyone is in this part of the country March 6 I have 4 tickets and currently only one other person is coming with me!!! Be my guest. 2 seats in the front row and 2 in the 3rd row center.

I'm sure I'll attend another concert prior to this but this benefit that's coming up later this month in Raleigh is still worth mentioning. Back when tickets went on sale for it a month or so ago I passed but not today when a fourth venue was announced. Racing For the Cure is a benefit for Oliver Gant, a local two year old who was diagnosed with cancer last year. To learn more about him and this benefit, click here. The fourth venue is the Lincoln Theatre who will host Tift Merritt, Bombadil, Holy Ghost Tent Revival, Small Ponds and Brice Randall Bickford in concert on Friday, March 23rd. Below is the revised poster for the event.
