A week from Sunday we are going to see John Mellencamp at the new Dr. Phillips Center in downtown Orlando. It'll be the first time we've seen him. Check. :)

The Pride of the Twin Cities...THE REPLACEMENTS @ Hollywood Palladium tonight, April 15. Just found out John Doe is opening...cool.

Ok, it's only two of the original four; Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson. The other two are dead. I usually have an aversion to these type of reunions.

But it is the Mats we're talking about. Like early Van Halen, I have many drunken memories of crazy fun shambolic shows in the 80s by the Replacements. I have no illusion about this reunion...I know it won't be quite the same. They'll be much more sober, for one thing. Like Led Zeppelin was at the O2.

But their songs still kick ass, whether you're drunk or sober. The albums still resonate...all the way up to "Pleased to Meet Me". After that, they got boring and Paul went solo.

Besides, even if this reunion tour is a disappointment, at least I'm only out $50. The Rolling Stones are charging $400 and I already KNOW they'll be a disappointment.

Now...where's my copy of "Tim"?

Next show for me is Tame Impala at the House of Blues Cleveland on June 4th! (last day of school, too :bubble: )

They're releasing a new album "Currents" soon and the tour is going to be supporting the new album. They've always been a favorite of mine and it's gonna be a great way to kick off this summer, I can't wait!

Also on the itinerary this year is Foo Fighters, The Who, and my buddy's local Pink Floyd tribute band "Wish You Were Here" a few times.

Tame Impala are impressive and trippy live. They are one of the more interesting current bands to see in concert. Good line-up of shows you got there, Icondo.

Next concert up for me is April 30/May 1: Sleater-Kinney @ Hollywood Palladium. The return of the one of the great kick-ass bands of the post-grunge era. :yay:

Our town just released the summer lineup of free outdoor shows, and Mark Farner is listed. Funny, cause last year they had Don Brewer and Mel Shacher play as Grand Funk. They are still a top notch rhythm section, and they had an ex-Kiss guitarist who did a good job. Maybe if Mark, Don, and Mel were reunited, they would get more than these small gigs? I'm not complaining - it's free and sounds fine to me!

Thanks Strider! This summer is gonna be a great one for concerts!

Sleater-Kinney is a really cool band, too. Kick-ass is a great term to describe them for sure. Enjoy the show! :thumbsup:

Icondo123, just saw The Who today at Jazz Fest and was blown away! You will not be disappointed, they sounded really great, and they played with a lot of passion and enthusiasm. And you will appreciate Zak Starkey on the drums, he is a beast!! Great setlist, I especially enjoyed Love Reign O'er Me and Won't Get Fooled Again. Oh, and Who are You, and one more that I didn't recognize but really enjoyed... it was a workout!

Have fun! :)

Bands saw & highly recommend: Catfish & the Bottlemen; Wolf Alice; The Waterboys. Have to say the Waterboys was one of the best concerts I've seen in recent memory: they were incredible--reminded me of LZ in the sense every musician playing was a master- just awesome. I'd say a don't miss! Coming up: Gear Daddies; Tame Impala.

Oh, and I just saw Strider's April post on the Replacements: I think Chris Mars would very much disagree with the comment that he is dead. He is an artist, not an active musician-hardly the same thing as being dead ; )

I had a chance to mix work/future possibilities while at the same time going to a Def Leppard gig maybe a week ago for a small 2 day trip. It was a GREAT gig with a solid crowd. I saw one member of the band at one point during the day and was going to walk up to him and say hi, and thanks, and welcome to the city they were playing in and maybe recommend a used record store but I chickened out and thought I would just sound like a total loser so I passed up on it which I kinda regret now. When I told my wife she was upset with me for not doing it but oh well, it's not in me I guess. I tried something similar a few months back during The Tea Party gig in Halifax; I felt really dumb reaching my hand out to say thanks and the drummer sort of brushed past me as he was in a rush so I don't think I can do that again.
