What's the Next Concert You're Attending?


Recommended Posts

Heads up to those in the Western US-The Station to Station art "happening" train is headed for California... Just saw a short but great Patti Smith set at the cool Station to Station Art train "Happening". The musical acts vary per train stop but there is an art installation for Kenneth Anger--Saw some of the Lucifer Rising film in a red hut sitting on a pentangular perch. Next concert up: Har Mar Superstar (wonder if Father John Misty will show as they are said to be penning a tv show together?) Heads up UK--My local fave female singer Chastity Brown has a number of UK dates left....love love love her voice & banjo pickin'-if you like Americana music, you may like her. Check out her infectious "After You" by Chastity on youtube to get a taste.

Have a good time, TypeO! They are playing down here too and Scott is performing solo as well - I just can't bring myself to see either one without the other. If you could report back after seeing the show, it would be most appreciated! :)

Will do.

Definitely.

Republicans want to keep things as they are, or turn back time. They aren't as eager for reform or change, and believe that the system shouldn't be tinkered with, and that government should remain small and out of the picture. This makes the party appealing to some key groups who hold an interest in looking toward the past for inspiration to govern our country:

  • wealthier citizens who adore a time when the government freely allowed them to be wealthy without meddling,
  • Conservative religious groups who praise old-fashioned morals and values, and want to preach without the government meddling,
  • and older generations who remember the way things were fondly.

My government teacher used to say that if change makes you nervous, you're probably a Republican.

(take that as you will)

Democrats want to instigate change and reform. They believe the past was flawed and look more toward a future of change and innovation, usually involving more government action and assistance. This makes the party appealing to some key groups who hold an interest in seeing sweeping changes in the central government and country as a whole:

  • lower income citizens who feel trapped in their income class and want the government to intercede,
  • academics who have progressive ideas of change,
  • younger generations who find flaws in the way past generations handled things,
  • minorities who feel wronged by governmental policies of the past,
  • and workers/unions who favor government aid in ensuring safe work places and fair wages.

Next Tuesday, the 8th - Buddy Guy

10/12 - Sutton Foster

10/20 - Ralph Stanley on his farewell tour

I was going to see if I could get cancellation tickets this weekend for Randy Newman and next Thursday for Audra McDonald at the Library of Congress...but the Library of Congress is not open at the moment. Sigh...

And, I have a question. If I go see Gary Clark Jr next month, should I see Max Frost or Warren Hood as the opening act?

Look forward to hearing about the Buddy show ebk. He's playing in RI tomorrow night, but I don't think I can make it.

Hope they're all good for you!

Buddy Guy is simply amazing! So full of life, he is enjoying himself as much as we are enjoying him! He walked through the house during one number and sat at the table right in front of me (The Birchmere is a pretty small venue). The audience was ecstatic!

The opening act was "Kingfish" Ingram and Daryl Davis. Kingfish is 14 and an incredible guitarist. A fabulous evening all around!!

Last Saturday I went to see Sutton Foster. And while I love Sutton, she did a pretty static hour set and that was it. I left vaguely unsatisfied.

Tonight, it's Ralph Stanley on his farewell tour. Looking forward to it!!

Got a last-minute ticket to the Slayer concert last night at the Hollywood Palladium. Everyone paying their respects to the late Jeff Hanneman who died in May.

Tonight it's a concert I have long-awaited, ever since the pairing was announced...

Tuesday October 29, 2013: THE FLAMING LIPS @ The Greek Theatre...with Tame Impala!!!

Tonight!

November 7: Mazzy Star @ The Wiltern...the long-awaited return of one of my favourite moody acts of the 90s. Hope Sandoval on sultry smokey vocals and David Roback on guitar noir. The auditory equivalent of heroin...without the deadly side-effects. Their new album "Seasons of Your Day" is great.

Saw Johnny Winter this past Saturday night in New Jersey. Great show. He played a lot of varied stuff including recent and old: Johnny B Goode, Jumpin Jack Flash, It's all over now, Good Morning LIttle Schoolgirl, Dust my Broom, Got my mojo workin, Hiway 61,

Going to see Foghat in 2 months. Can't wait for that, haven't seen them live in 3 or 4 years now.

Aren't two of their members dead? Lonesome Dave and Rod Price? Foghat without those guys is like the Stones without Mick & Keef or LZ without Robert & Jimmy. No thanks.

Mott The Hoople - Manchester Sunday 17th November

You gotta give us a full report ledded!
