What's the Next Concert You're Attending?

Recommended Posts

Well, it was going to be Jack White and the Peacocks tonight at the Wiltern. But I've been feeling like death all week, so I'm going to have to pass...I kept hoping I'd feel better, but no dice.

Thing is, Mogwai is playing this Saturday at the Fonda, and now I'm worried I'll have to miss that one, too. Big bummer.

Should be a good one. Butch Hancock played a rare show here in NC recently but I had to miss him.

Quite content seeing local cover bands - free shows at the park or dockside bars. Looking forward to seeing the mostly original lineup of Vanilla Fudge next month.

I went to see .38 Special on Friday night. To make a long story short, they threw a concert....and no one came. I mean no one....2 groups of 3 people in lawn chairs. Between the cops, roadies, and vendors, they outnumbered the crowd 100 to 1. No one ever took the stage, and the last thing I saw was I believe some members of the band, who were standing outside their tour bus with wtf looks on their faces. I just rode on by thinking of Spinal Tap, chuckling to myself.

I assume that was a free show? You probably got more entertainment laughing at them, than if they had played. Our town has done a great job getting cover bands that draw hundreds, if not thousands - I can bring a cooler of beer and dance wherever I want. A few nights ago "Satisfaction" did the Stones, and soon "Stagger Lee" will do the Dead's livelier songs.

That would suck for the people in the lawn chairs if they never took the stage. How do you know if they never came on if you "just rode on by". You must have been waiting around yourself. If they never came on I wouldn't be chuckling, I'd be kind of pissed myself.

The show was $10 bucks, but it was also 100 degrees out, so that may have been a factor. Saw Skid Row & Tesla for free the weekend before, and it was packed. This was not normal.

It was a weird night. There was a warm-up band, but they didn't play either. I was willing to pay the 10 bucks, as you can bring in your bike, but never got a chance. I leaned against the fence watching reactions, and then the few people there started to leave. Even the cops looked confused. This was the first night of a three day event, and Foghat was scheduled to play last night. Since they were on the bill of the first concert I ever saw, I was looking forward to seeing them 36 years after the fact. The park is only a 3 mile ride, and I'm there every other day. I've got a knee problem, not a drinking one by the way. ;)

Really good show. Enjoyed it a great deal. Was especially impressed with the guitar player, Robby Gjersoe - yes, I had to look that up, but he was fabulous!

Then, on the way home, we got caught in the storm and had no internet for the next week. Fortunately, we had lights and a/c.

Tomorrow night, we're going to see Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion (her husband) at Hill Country BBQ. They're touring for the 100 anniversary of her grandfather Woody's birth. Should be fun.

Sarah and Johnny I have seen before though it's been a while. They opened for Tift Merritt at Playmakers Theatre on the campus of UNC in Chapel Hill several years ago. The connection is that Johnny Irion was in a band called Queen Sarah Saturday back in the 90's with Tift's drummer (and now, husband), Zeke Hutchins.

There's two i'd really like to be seeing, but both a bad timing for me. I'd like to make both, but reality is, i'll probably miss each of them :(

First is the Jason Bonham LZ Experience in Sydney on Sept 13 and also Ben Harper acoustic concert at the Sydney Opera house in November.

The Who on Valentines Day!

Do you think they might possibly play "Love Reign Over Me"?

Watch out for Johnny one finger, with starting too many new threads, here...

Had a great time in Montgomery last night at the Fab Four concert.

The band covered several favorites played as close to original versions as one could imagine.

To all Beatles fans out there, I highly recommend this band if they ever play in your town, or a town near you.
