Title: Last Show Attended?
Post by: cactusfan on November 03, 2006, 01:19:20 AM
don't know if people are getting out enough to make this thread work, but it seems like one to have around for when people do... and technically, EVERYONE, as of this moment, has a last show attended...  :-)


10/20 The Decemberists
i bought the album after hearing so much about it on another thread, liked it a lot, and saw the show.
it was good. not great. the new songs were far stronger than anything else they played. i haven't heard any of their other studio stuff, but the uninteresting songs-- maybe a quarter of the show-- were all ones i didn't recognize. they played one new song they said they left off 'the crane wife' because one band member was so disturbed by the violent lyrics. it was one of the best songs of the night. 'the perfect crime' was the other highlight. they tore that one up.

10/17 Bob Dylan
never seen him live before. really solid show. the band was in the pocket all night. old songs were barely recognizable and ultimately probably didn't work as well as the new ones. 'all along the watchtower' was played, but it just sounded like the hendrix version without the awesome guitar.

10/6 John Scofield playing Ray Charles songs
decent band with an amazing vocalist, and of course scofield, who was on fire. highlight was a duet with sco and the vocalist doing 'georgia on my mind.'

I'm going to see this tonight:

WIRED FOR SOUND

CHRIS CUTLER, JON ROSE, ZEENA PARKINS, JOHN OSWALD & ILAN VOLKOV
GLASGOW CITY HALLS
SATURDAY 4 NOVEMBER, 7.30PM
FREE TICKETS: 0141 353 8000 (or on door)

The sight of the massed ranks of a symphony orchestra in full flow is one of the greatest in all music, but prepare yourself for one of the strangest. John Oswald's Concerto For Wired Conductor requires that the conductor wear electronic sensors that create musical sounds based on his movements. When that conductor is Ilan Volkov, expect sparks to fly.

This is just one piece in a free evening of groundbreaking music to be presented by the BBC SSO at the City Halls on Saturday 4 November as part of a recording for BBC Radio 3's new music programme Hear And Now. They are joined by Chris Culter, the legendary drummer, performer and composer with experimental rock-group Henry Cow,  Jon Rose, violin prodigy turned improviser extraordinaire, Zeena Parkins, composer and pioneer of the electric harp, and Canadian composer and saxophonist, John Oswald. Collectively these musicians have collaborated, and torn down musical barriers, with the likes of Björk, Robert Wyatt, Yoko Ono, John Zorn and John Cage.

Volkov is also the soloist in the premiere of Cutler's P53-3, in which the entire BBC SSO is his ‘instrument'. Collectively, the ensemble re-imagines, transforms and ultimately sets free fragments of Wagner, Debussy and Stravinsky into new sonic worlds. Volkov‘s dual role is akin to a club DJ: the musical excerpts are discs and the orchestra the decks, where the music is mixed, fragmented, combined and transformed on a whim to create a backdrop of startling new sounds for the other soloists.

Expect harmony, exhilaration, failure, improvisation, sampling, synchronicity, dialogue, one-upmanship, clashes, beauty, musical mind-games and aural tantrums.

This is an intense new direction for Volkov and the BBC SSO and will take the entire ensemble to some surprising new places.

This is an intense new direction for Volkov and the BBC SSO and will take the entire ensemble to some surprising new places.

Just got back from the symphony - seeing Volkov's orchestral improvisation was very interesting.  He would hold up signs with letters and numbers and the orchestra would play a section from a composition which corresponded - he used this in a rather intruiging way having only parts of some compositions (just the strings from a Debussy number, just the percussion from a Wagner peice, etc).

It was often chaotic and never really found any kind of interesting space - the other improvisers he played with were mostly atonal and arrythmyic which held everything back, imo.

The "wired for sound" section in the first half was similar in that the conductor was triggering samples while conducting an arranged peice - less improvisation but more pleasing to the ear - especially when you would hear sections from some of the more famous peices of classical music.

It was interesting to hear John Oswald's "plunderphonics" applied to classical music in a live/concert hall setting.  He spoke afterwards and was very engaging.

All in all a cool free event - I'm glad I went.

Yeah he's great, the first time we saw him for his entire set he was doing this schtick where he kept talking about how he was such a big loser and he was going to blow his brains out as soon as he left the stage.  But of course the crowd was feeling his beats and rhymes so by the end of the set he was proclaiming how we had saved his life by convincing him that he wasn't completely worthless.  Funny stuff, and a very unique hip hop performance compared to the usual boasting and whatnot. 

This last time the shit was getting so hot that his lap top leaped from the chair it was sitting on to the floor of the stage! Thankfully, the show continued once he rebooted it.

saw an odd show tuesday night in LA at a little place called the Hotel Cafe, basically a snazzy bar with a stage, room for 150.

all acoustic, featuring pete townsend, mark everett "e" from the eels, and billy corgan. townsend played a bunch of songs, some old who stuff, some other random stuff. then e played a bunch of awesome eels tunes-- he really is great, for those who don't know the eels, amazing voice and songwriting-- and then townsend came up and he and e played a couple of who songs. then corgan played a few songs. he was kind of lame. then everyone came up on stage and did another couple who songs.

a cool show to see. though in the end, i just want to see more of the eels.

How was it?

They put on a good show.  I've seen them three times now (I think) and although the first time was best, it's always a fun time and dance off extravaganza.

The venue I saw them at has a 11:00 curfew on weeknights though, so I  had a "I was just getting started" feeling as I walked out.  IMO no rock n' roll show should end before midnight. 

But definitely they're worth seeing, and they still played most of the Echoes album last night and well as a bunch of tunes off the new album, which is pretty good as well.

From wikipedia:
Quote
is located at the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea. It is bounded on the north by Lebanon, on the northeast by Syria, on the east and southeast by Jordan, on the southwest by Egypt, and on the west by the Mediterranean Sea. Before June 1967, the area composing Israel (resulting from the armistice lines of 1949 and 1950) was about 20,700 km² (8,000 mi²), which included 445 km² (172 mi²) of inland waters. Thus Israel was roughly the size of the state of New Jersey, stretching 424 km (263 mi) from north to south. Its width ranged from 114 km (71 mi) to, at its narrowest point, 15 km (9.0 mi). After the June 1967 War, Israel occupied territories totaling an additional 7,099 km² (2,743 mi²). These territories include the West Bank, 5,879 km² (2,270 mi²); East Jerusalem (annexed, according Israeli law), 70 km² (27 mi²); and the Golan Heights (de facto annexation), 1,150 km² (444 mi²).

I am headed down to New Orleans by way of Memphis this evening for a LONG weekend!!  I have a few friends down there, and we are hoping to catch some of the preliminary Mardi Gras stuff.  I am too old, or maybe just not willing to put up with the real deal.  Anyway, I am hoping someone is playing at tipitinas.  Doesn't look too terribly promising though.  I guess I'll just have to settle for temps in the upper 60's!!!!!!!  F this snow garbage.  hahahahahahah

with special guest Rob Barraco - *Barraco sang lead

i miracled my friend and also gave him his first rolling experience.  Steve was always the kind of guy that went to a show to watch it, to sit in his seat and enjoy the show without dancing.  When we came back in for the 2nd set, he said his legs started to feel rubbery.  Eyes comes on, and he slowly starts gettin into the groove, boogeying down.  Right in the middle Uncle John's Band he just completely stops tho, and looks me straight in the eye:  "Now i know why they dance!!!  I get it!"  He was groovin hard the rest of the night.  I had finally gotten the breakthrough id always wanted with him lol, to get him to finally realize and see for himself the magic of live jamming. 


Now, for whatever reason...  either we were wayyyyy too beat from the show or i didn't know that they were doing 2 nights, but i am SOOOOOOO kicking myself in the face for skipping the 2nd night:

STUPID, STUPID, STUPID GREG.  *kicks face*  STUPID STUPID IDIOT.  gahhhhhh

I learned my lesson.  No matter how good the first night is, its not good enough to warrant not going to the next night.  WHY DO I KEEP DOING THINGS LIKE THIS!?!?!  First i turn down miracles for both nights of Phish at SPAC in '04.  And then i decide to skip the 2nd night of DSO because i didnt think that they could top the first night.  I mean...  come on tho, in my defense, how can you come out of a show with a 2nd set like the first night and not have reservations about them being able to top it the next night?  gahhhhhh im fuckin retarded.  whats that saying...  get me once, shame on you.  get me twice, shame on me.

The wife and I were seated at a table butted up against the front of the stage. I made a sign that said NH GOT WOOD and they were diggin' on it. They ended up signing it. Great show.

Raq- 3/2/07 Eugene, OR

saw Raq last night.  Best I have ever seen them. They keep getting better.  The last Portland show was just ok, so it's was great to see them really rip through a set.  They killed it.  I was very impressed.  If you have a chance to see them on this tour, do it....Unfortunatley, there was a taper with Schoeps, DFC like 25 feet fromt he stage and as soon as the opener (Jerry Joseph) ended, he broke down his rig and left the show.  "I gotta go get some beer..." (and they had beer at the show)....what a numbskull...

RJD2 @ Sonar in Baltimore.  Happy Chichester (acoustic) and Busdriver!  opened.  HC was one of the guys in RJD2.  He played for about 30min.  Then Busdriver tore it up! One DJ (i think also in RJD2) and a CRAZY-as-F*CK MC.

RJD2 had 4 guys on stage.  They played instruments for most of it, with a big DJ break in the middle of the set.  Kinda like drumz/space.  It was a really good show.

Here's some pics, enjoy!  I did. :-D

U-Melt's 400th show celebration.  3/3/07  Revolution Hall   Troy, NY
Wreckloose opened.

WOW.  what a fucking night.  U-Melt is unbelievable...  these guys are gonna get huge.  Their vocal harmonies are delicious, and Rob has amazing chops.  Zac Lasher is one fucking awesome keyboard player and singer tho, damn. 

But you guys really need to check out Wreckloose.  They're opening up for Perpetual Groove in May, and I almost gave my friend a heart attack when i told him that, because after I dragged him kicking and screaming to a PGroove show, he became obsessed with them really badly.  And after dragging him to the U-Melt show, he's bugged out on Wreckloose now too.  And the two of them together was almost too much for him haha. 

does anyone here listen to U-Melt as well?

This is definitely one of the strongest first sets Ive seen from any band, anywhere, period.  The flow is just perfect...  effortless, gentle, and raging.  The emotional/lyrical flow of the first 4 songs just boggles my mind.  And its even weirder because of the relevence to the recent events of my life...  415 made me cry, and I had to leave during Perfect World (my g/f of 16 months broke up with me on my 21st birthday a week before...  go to umelt.com and check out the lyrics and you can see why)

You guys really gotta check out Wreckloose too.  They're from Albany, as far as I know.  They blew me away; I loved it.  They've got a very original sound...  I'm not sure how to even describe it.  Take the danceable four on the floor drumming of the Dead/Disco Biscuits, and put that underneith this mashed up thing that feels a little like the Allman Brothers.  I'm really at a loss to explain their sound.  Their singer is great tho, he's like Gregg Allman without sounding like a 50 year old black man, just in the emotionality of the way he sings, I guess.  Its hard to explain.  If anything, PLEASE download their last song, Break Them Down.  This song hasn't left my head since the night of the show; its mad annoying haha.  The vocal harmony on the chorus just melts me away, and its not a really jamming tune, which is what makes me love it even more, because its an actual SONG that is extremely well-written.  You can find a sendspace link in the "Jamband hits" thread i started

Badly Drawn Boy - ummm, a girl took me to see this. i'd not heard any of the music before. not bad, i guess, but not really good either. kind of inoffensively bland. at one point the main guy-- damon something?-- teased the journey song 'don't stop believin' which got a laugh. then they closed the encore by actually playing that crap song without so much as a hint of irony. ouch. it was awful. even the girl i went with was cringing.

Not hitting Zero.  I'm from just outside Baltimore, so the drive to Falls Church took about an hour.  Really cool venue, though.  I actually recorded some music at Cue Recording Studio, across the street from the State, a few years ago.

It was worth the trip, and the $ for the show.  We got a really good one.  Good venue with a killer vibe.  I'd see anyone there again.

particle show was awesome! I love Ben the new guitarist he makes particle a more complete band, and their jams are way different now and more spacey. Steve as always rocked the house. met a cool chick and shes sending me the set list, so all in all a great show.


Definitely check out the new particle!

that show was similar to what they played at the buffalo show. Check out the Triple Threat, if you wanna hear new particle check out Eternity (with vocals), one of my favorite songs Ed and Molly, Launch Pads always a good one, and a i think Axel F is a cover because i've heard that somewhere.

Panic @ Orange Beach AL:  sat. nite only.
Good show, killa venue..this was the first show there, so the security was pretty tight gettin in.  I just am losing faith that panic fans are the "Good People" that i used to love so much...maybe i was one of the assholes when i was a bit younger, and older fans felt the same about me>?  At any rate, Herring is the shit...his tone selection for his solos are probably better/more emotional than even Houser.  I wanted to hear a sandbox/postcard, got neither:(  Oh yeah, and i went to my favorite bar in the world (Sanchos in Denver close 2nd) the Flora Bama, to the international Mullet toss, where drunkards get to toss dead fish across the interstate!  what fun for a hillbilly sonfbitch!  If you think that you may like to see them this summer, do it with some friends!

The Good The Bad and The Queen @ the Regency in san francisco

they played the hell out of their album... and that was the show, the album, front to back. would have liked maybe a little more variety. like even a different running order, say. i mean they did a good job, but with a band that good, they definitely could have busted out something unusual. if they have no other songs, maybe even a cover of something that inspired them? 1:20 for a whole show is a bit short...

4-14-07: Ben Folds, Ohio Wesleyan University, Delaware, OH

Unbelievably killer show. I've now seen Ben in one way or another 14 times, and this was probably my second favorite. It was ironic -- my friend and I were up against the stage and managed to snag a picture on his phone of the setlist taped onto the floor, and he changed so much of it on the fly it was nearly useless. That'll teach me to cheat  :roll:

There was a good 30 minutes total that was either storytelling/conversation, random, completely improvised songs or jams, or sections of songs that were stretched out in unique ways. For instance -- for those familiar with his music, during "Narcolepsy" the bass amp went out right before the last "I'm not tired" chorus build-up started. Ben kept the beat going, playing low pulses on his piano and new synth. The drummer kept pace, and a jam gradually built. Even as the bass came back on, they jammmed for a good minute or two, and Ben did an intense, tension-building piano solo over it that finally exploded into the louder "I'm not tired" lyrics without missing a beat. Wow.

Anyway, the main reason I ranted about that, for those who care, is that the amazing spontaneity and looseness like that in this show was the biggest motivator to get me back on my Phish kick. I was standing there in that jam with my eyes closed thinking "It almost feels like I'm at a Phish show"...and here I am. Again.

Nice, big fan of Ben Folds Five myself, was pretty disappointed with "Song For Silverman" though. 

Looks like he's on tour with John Mayer for the rest of the summer, and unless Aug's doing the full tour I probably won't be hitting that.  :wink:

Erm, yeeeah, I wouldn't hit that with a ten foot pole  :-P

I did go see him as the opening act for Tori Amos on the Lottapianos tour a few years back, and that was worth it. But there's no way I'm dealing with Mayer's music, ticket prices and fans for 45 minutes of good Ben Folds. Ick. He deserves better.

As for "Songs for Silverman," I agree it's not as good as most of his past stuff, but I think most of it's quite lovely music. "Bastard" and "You to Thank" still have quite a bit of fire, and songs like "Jesusland" are quite moving, methinks.

Actually, if you haven't heard the music from his EPs around 2003/2004, you should really check them out. THAT is some essential post-Five music right there, especially the stuff on Sunny 16. Some of it's been redone on that Suppersunnyspeedgraphic thingamajigger, but I stubbornly like the original versions better  :-)

Hey look, quoting skills improving! I told you I'd practice!  :roll:

Anyhoo. I often agree with, Gumbo. At home or in the car, I'm often doing other things whilst the music is on (in the car, one would hope so!). But if I get really caught up in a piece of music, jam or not, I often will end up with my eyes closed, and I just go into an Enraptured Savor the Music Mode that probably would look profoundly stupid to anyone watching.

At a show, it ends up getting split up. Part of the time I end up wanting to take in the "whole experience" -- all the people dancing around me, the band right there in front of me, the light show if there is one, etc. At those times I either blankly and happily stare ahead, or keep scanning the entire environs, which somehow enhances it all.

BUT, just like at home, if I end up getting really taken away (like the Ben Folds example I mentioned), I often will close my eyes and dance or groove around that way. I can still sort of feel the presence of the room and the people and the lights, but at the same time I'm in a world where the music is everything. I usually feel much more comfortable doing it at concerts cos I'm generally not the only one doing so.  :-)

At Phish shows, the latter would happen quite often, and as long as I periodically opened my eyes to take everything in, it just ended up enhancing the experience.

Yeah, mind you, there was plenty of "Omigod it's Ben Folds and he's so awesome and he's two arm lengths away and he's singing and playing the piano right in front of me omigod!" action too. Jared (the bass players) actually recognizes me and my friends by now, which means, I guess, that we qualify as obsessed fanboys by now.

Oh well, I own about 400 Phish shows, why should I care?  :roll:

But most of the time, it's all about the music, and since I can take in all that better with my eyes closed much of the time, so be it  :-)

Yeah dude you pretty much hit it on the head.  I love watching the lights get crazy, but usually I can tell whats happening with my eyes closed.  But when that happens I always feel like I have to like, hmm...  kind of downshift on dancing, because my attention is being split elsewhere.  I donno, at least for me, I dont think I can get into the groove as much as I can with my eyes closed as I can when im looking at something.  The groove itself is simply about the music and you boogeying within it and what its doing to your mind, body, and spirit.  But then theres the atmosphere around the groove that also means something; watching the people dance, watching the band get off, watching the lights, etc.

Last show I saw was Andrew Bird at the Canopy in Champaign.

It was an incredible show.  The band consisted of him, a drummer/keyboardist (I think his name is Vosh), and a bass player (playing a Phil Lesh-esque hollow-body Gibson).  Vosh had a trap set, a Rhodes, a synth, and some sort of arpeggiator, and looped all this stuff to cover the entire rhythm section (except bass of course).  Andrew looped his guitar, violin, and a small xylophone, while singing.  The bass player just played bass and sang some harmonies.  With all this they were able to cover all the orchestration on the new album.  It was very impressive, sometimes there would be fifteen loops between the two of them, and they were constantly subtracting and adding loops, and then they would break down to a simple trio, which had a nice gritty indie rock sort of sound.

Andrew is a great songwriter, and can shred on the violin, although he usually didn't.  He really likes to pluck the violin strings, which I love.  His vocals were dead on, and he was charming between songs.

The show was sold out, and surprisingly the crowd was 40% cute 19-year-old girls.

oh yeah, last week i saw Bustle In Your Hedgerow, which is benevento/russo with the guitarist and bassist from Ween playing instrumental zeppelin covers.

it was awesome. they played for a good three hours. you could really feel how much they loved the music, and the audience was deeply into every moment. russo seemed to actually be channeling bonzo half the time. for moby dick he didn't just play 'a' drum solo, he actually played bonzo's solo, more or less, including tossing his sticks aside halfway through and playing with his hands. i can imagine russo as a kid learning the drums obsessing over that song.

as the second set ended, everyone but marco left the stage. finally he looks up, notices everyone is gone, and gives a little 'what the fuck?' kind of look, like he really wanted to keep playing. the Ocean in the encore was great. the rave-up section at the end got very groovy and long and extended.

the guitarist was in a little over his head, but he did a good job most of the time. they certainly weren't trying to sound anything like zeppelin did, or even to play a show anything like zep did, but they really got inside the music and made something uniquely 'them' out of it all.

WMDS
Keller Williams, Keith Mosely, Gibb Droll, Jeff Sipe

Debut performance and a great show.
You'd never know that they'd only been practicing since Monday. Actually, there were a couple points, lyrical
flubs and Keller giving cues to Sipe once or twice but, honestly, I've seen bands that have been together for
decades play sloppier shows.

Bird Song was a big surprise and huge highlight for me.

this setlist is incomplete and wildly inaccurate (title-wise)

Apparition
Dogs

"Disco")

Anyway, antelope19 came down for the show and, we had a blast. The venue could not have had 100 people in there.

No taping though...  :-(
I almost didn't remember how to behave at a show when not blocking a mic stand in silence.

Marcus Strickland was on tenor/soprano, didn't catch the name of the piano or bass player.

they have a new lineup now including a Lead singer, and they banged out a serious hour and half of jazz/reggae laden funkified filth.

this show seriously blew everyone away.
the best energy i've seen at show in years; both the crowd and the band were Jacked.

even as they came back for the obligatory encore, with everyone still realing from the peaked closer, they busted into Zeppelins 'the ocean' and sent us all home smiling and thinking of going dirrectly to grab their new LP, and saying WOW! and that shit was a FREE show! what a fuckin great fuckin show!

A+ ,
I highly recommend seeing them currently, especially if your into the funk.

well, last nights page show RIPPED!!!

it was weird to watch the other band members key off of and follow page... they would let him make the changes and then follow... but it didnt hurt the music what so ever...

again it was really rockin, and there were a couple of spots where they really found some space to open it up and groove...

overall the talent was there, but it would have benefitted from a steady lead guitar... there were 2 guitar players (one who switched between keys and guitar) but neither really took the lead all that much... which is understandable since it was a page show...

the best was that we sent a text message to my wife (she had class so couldnt go) saying that fishman just came out and played purple rain adn the vacuum with prince... she texted back all pissed that she wasnt there...

imagine how pissed she was this morning when i told her it didnt happen! :D

Going to see a great local band tonight called "Frenchbread and the Chinamen"  I am really good friends with the drummer and lead guitarist.  And I am not just saying this because I am friends with the band, but they are alot of fun and pretty damn talented as well.  Great originals and some excellent covers of the likes of the Meters, Allmans, Dead, Steely Dan, ZZ Top, Little Feat, etc.  I am really looking forward to it because I haven't seen them in a few months!

Great versions of Franklins Tower on their, as well as a few of their originals.

Last night I attended Wilco at the Chastain Ampitheater in Atlanta, GA.  I have never seen so much rain in my life, but yet this was probably the best concert I've ever attended in my life.  I returned home and just sat in bed in awe of what I had witnessed.  The rain added a dimension to this show that is too difficult to describe in words, so I'll refrain from any further attempt to do such a thing. 

I entered the venue at 8:00 pm and found the opening band LOW performing and I wasn't really impressed by them.  Their sound is best described as "mellow dramatic" alternative rock.  I decided that buying a tour shirt and getting a poncho was more important that listening to LOW.  I made my way back down to my seat, which was in the 19th row of the pit.  I waited impatiently as LOW continued to perform, finally they ended their set.  It had been raining on and off during their set, but it began to pour shortly before Wilco took the stage. 

Finally the moment arrived, Tweedy lead the troops onto the stage, and they began the set with Either Way, which was very fitting since the first verse contains a line stating, "maybe the sun will come out today."  This was a solid version and a very good pick as a opener.  The "funky" section had the crowd rocking really hard and the smell of beasters became apparent as soon as Cline took his first solo over the funky section.  Next up was You Are My Face, and I have to say that I love this song and its one of better songs on the Sky Blue Sky album, and this version was very tight. 

Now the show really got rolling with Impossible Germany as third song of the set, and I think this is the best new song they have, so I was very pleased to hear it.  As IG progressed the rain continued to pour harder and harder, but that didn't stop me from gettin' my wook on  :wink: .   Sky Blue Sky followed, then I Am Trying To Break Your Heart.  This was an excellent version and I liked how they extended the intro by a few measures, and the outro had a very psychedelic feel to it (more than the album version). 

The show continued to pick up steam as they played Shot in the Arm, Handshake Drugs, Kamera, Side with the Seeds, Shake it off, Walken, and hate it here.  Then they played Jesus, etc. and it was breathtaking for me.  The lyrics to this song are genius to me, and I was grinning really hard and dancing really hard too.  I couldn't of been more happier that I got to hear this song.  Then it got even better, War on War followed and kept me dancing like a fool. 

I'm the man who loves you was next and it was the best version I've heard from Wilco.  The set closed with Humming bird, which was also a beautiful version.  Tweedy announced that the band was taking a bathroom break and would return in a moment.  When they returned, they busted out Via Chicago and it was one of the most powerful songs I've ever seen live.  This was my first time seeing this song live, so the whole experience is on another level and it made the show for me.  VC ended in an array of feedback and subtle psychedelia that set up Spiders (Kidsmoke) perfectly.  This version absolutely rocked my face off.  Tweedy played on the sickest solos I've ever heard from him, and they extended it to around 15-16 minutes.  At one point Tweedy had the whole crowd clapping, and the band stopped playing for a few measures, then BOOM! Right back into the "power chord" section of the song. 

The band left the stage and returned for a two song encore which consisted of Heavy Metal Drummer and Outta Sight.   

For those that hate reading:

setlist:
Either Way
You are my Face
Impossible Germany
Sky Blue Sky
I am trying to break your heart
Shot in the arm
Handshake drugs
Kamera
Side with the seeds
Shake it off

Hate it here
Jesus, etc
War on War

Ok, so I went up to B-more last night and saw the cowboy junkies.  A friend had two free tix, so she suggested I bring the GF because she would enjoy it.  So, we decided to make a nice evening of it, and go grab a bite at the inner harbor.  It turned out very nice.  We ate at hooters.   :evil:  JK.  We ate outside at a typical sandwich place, but sitting there on the water was quite enjoyable.  Anyway, We walked into the venue as they were coming on stage.  Great Timing!!!  The place was relatively empty, but it ended up being kinda nice.  I had never seen Rams Head Live set up with rows of chairs like that.  It made it a bit more intimate for the hardcore fans.  Which was kinda nice.  The first set was acoustic with only 3 of the 5 band members.  Or, I am assuming there are 5 total because that's how many played their electric set.  During the acoustic set, the lead singer was talking alot about the band and them touring and about how they don't have very many happy songs.  I was really kinda, well, not kicking myself, but we'll say I was hoping that the entire night wasn't going to be like this.  Otherwise, I would have had a really difficult time keeping my eyes open on the drive back home.   :-D  It wasn't bad, but it wasn't exactly dancin' music either.  So the first set came and went(she does have a really nice voice, BTW) and then they came out to play electric.  This was much more upbeat.  People were dancing a bit, and really enjoying themselves.  One thing that struck me.  The drummer, who wasn't included in the acoustic set, had this Plexi-glass wall around his set.  It really threw me for a loop, and I couldn't understand why anyone would do that because he was really low in the mix, and other than being able to hear him through the PA in certain parts of the venue, he was nearly inaudible.  I had never seen anything like it.  So I asked my friends husband, who helps with band management/stage set up/sound what the deal was.  He said it is to isolate the sound  and send it upwards, as opposed to outwards so that it doesn't drown out the lead singer.  This made much more sense, but I walked around the venue to make sure I wasn't crazy, and you really couldn't hear him anywhere.  Dammit, i like my drums loud!!!!   :-D  But other than that, they played a nice mix of songs, not that I knew any of them.  But everyone there seemed to be having a good time.  I did too.  Would I go to see them again for free.  Absolutely.  Would I pay the 30 bucks they were asking?  Not a chance.  On a side note, the singer mentioned that they were headed up to Boston to play with the Pops, which I thought was very cool.

The Police, in vegas.

i read some comments about their show at bonnarroo, seemed to be mixed, shall we say.

the show in vegas was actually pretty kick-ass. many songs had been rearranged, some subtly, some more obviously, espcially in cases like 'every little thing' where there's no piano. summers came up with a very odd little guitar part for that one, but it worked.
'driven to tears' was probably the highlight for me, they extended that one and gave summers a chance to go off. his guitar work is unique, and i like it a lot.
they were rough in a few places, missing a couple changes in 'spirits' and 'next to you,' but it felt like these rough spots came from pushing themselves as opposed to laziness. they really came off as though they had something to prove, as opposed to gliding through a greatest hits set. nothing sounded like the album version. they played hard.
copeland was on fire, as usual. and despite how much shit i sling sting's way for all the crappy music he's made since the police broke up, the guy has one of the most incredible voices in rock, and it still sounds amazing.
of course i would have liked a few more of their lesser known songs, but i wasn't expecting any.
i was psyched they did the 'voices' > 'world is running down' twofer. that was cool.
overall i had a great time. glad i finally got to see these guys.

other reasons they might use it could be to prevent feedback or bleeding (especially if they play near each other). 

i haven't seen many jamband drummers use this set up. i seem to notice them more in (loud) metal and r&b or hiphop kits.

watch for it on jay leno bands, for some reason i always see the plexi-wall there. (maybe cuz those bands re-use the same house rig)

although you may have to really look a lot closer than normal. but now that you've seen it, i bet you'll start to notice them more.

The Grateful Dead used them. It allows the other band members to not be overloaded by the drums so that other onstage levels can be controlled. For a quieter/mellow band like the Cowboy Junkies, it seems a natural way to tame volumes.

right. i was also about to add that the singer might hear the real drums and the drums thru the monitors simultaniously which can be confusing sometimes. the plexi-wall eliminates that.

This was the 11th year, my third in a row.  It's become tradition.  Basically, they shut down a few streets by the water and throw a big party!  But it's a local festival with about 25 local bands and a ton of local merchants.  Great food, beer, and music.  A great time had by all!

They've grown on me in the past few months.  I've been grabbing their shows off of TTD, and I have to say that their improv segments are somewhat interesting.  When they start the "soundscaping," it's pretty cool, but I have yet to see them live, so I want to see the lights that accompany it.

Tool does a great live show.  I've seen em twice and the last time in NOLA(2months ago) my buddy took his tape rig and appearently, they are tape friendly.  I love em, better than NIN...

I would have been pissed, at least give the kids a show for their money.  I saw them once, they had a gong on stage, not sure if they ever used it though.   

Aenima is a great album though, but their recent stuff bores me.  To each their own though.

Anyone want to take this off my hands?   :evil:

yeah i had heard so many mixed feelings about it.
still not too sure.

but i'm taking my brother to his first show that night.7/7
he's pretty excited.

he's just never been to big on live music... he listens to rap pretty much.
but he likes tool, so big sister got him tickets for the birfday and he asked me to go.

finally turned him onto phish when i moved home this past dec.
he became a dead fan when he was 8.

Not really sure what he is listening to but has he, or you, ever heard of Nujabes? He is a terrific hip hop producer from Japan that does all the soundtrack for Samurai Champloo. He has a few cd's of his own and collabroates with another producer named fat jon a lot.

I'm not a fan of anime music but there are some terrific hip hope producers and mc's from japan. Beans, a japanes mc, just released a cd with all Prefuse 73 beats.

I wouldn't go to tool if you payed me by the way, to each his own...

I think any Dead show could beat that soundtrack to Katamri Damacy in a wrestling match anyday.

Seriously tho, get him listening to Zappa, some of his music sound like it came straight out of a cartoon soundtrack written by a mental patient, and since that description fits most anime music I figure getting into Zappa wont be too hard for your brother.

Title: Re: Last Show Attended?

Lather was the first Zappa recording I got - a bootleg cassette, long before the CD was released.
Title: Re: Last Show Attended?
Post by: Red Sea Pedestrian on July 04, 2007, 09:56:28 PM
If you could get into Zappa through Lather, then that's awesome. But compare the Greggary Peckary "song" and the Black Page and Approximate, to say, Peaches and Yellow Snow, and I think that Hot Rats and Apostrophe are generally more accesible to people who don't come from a Jazz, Fusion, or Progressive background.

Post by: redrum on July 05, 2007, 09:52:21 PM
Last night I attended Wilco at the Chastain Ampitheater in Atlanta, GA.  I have never seen so much rain in my life, but yet this was probably the best concert I've ever attended in my life.  I returned home and just sat in bed in awe of what I had witnessed.  The rain added a dimension to this show that is too difficult to describe in words, so I'll refrain from any further attempt to do such a thing. 

I entered the venue at 8:00 pm and found the opening band LOW performing and I wasn't really impressed by them.  Their sound is best described as "mellow dramatic" alternative rock.  I decided that buying a tour shirt and getting a poncho was more important that listening to LOW.  I made my way back down to my seat, which was in the 19th row of the pit.  I waited impatiently as LOW continued to perform, finally they ended their set.  It had been raining on and off during their set, but it began to pour shortly before Wilco took the stage. 

Finally the moment arrived, Tweedy lead the troops onto the stage, and they began the set with Either Way, which was very fitting since the first verse contains a line stating, "maybe the sun will come out today."  This was a solid version and a very good pick as a opener.  The "funky" section had the crowd rocking really hard and the smell of beasters became apparent as soon as Cline took his first solo over the funky section.  Next up was You Are My Face, and I have to say that I love this song and its one of better songs on the Sky Blue Sky album, and this version was very tight. 

Now the show really got rolling with Impossible Germany as third song of the set, and I think this is the best new song they have, so I was very pleased to hear it.  As IG progressed the rain continued to pour harder and harder, but that didn't stop me from gettin' my wook on  :wink: .   Sky Blue Sky followed, then I Am Trying To Break Your Heart.  This was an excellent version and I liked how they extended the intro by a few measures, and the outro had a very psychedelic feel to it (more than the album version). 

The show continued to pick up steam as they played Shot in the Arm, Handshake Drugs, Kamera, Side with the Seeds, Shake it off, Walken, and hate it here.  Then they played Jesus, etc. and it was breathtaking for me.  The lyrics to this song are genius to me, and I was grinning really hard and dancing really hard too.  I couldn't of been more happier that I got to hear this song.  Then it got even better, War on War followed and kept me dancing like a fool. 

I'm the man who loves you was next and it was the best version I've heard from Wilco.  The set closed with Humming bird, which was also a beautiful version.  Tweedy announced that the band was taking a bathroom break and would return in a moment.  When they returned, they busted out Via Chicago and it was one of the most powerful songs I've ever seen live.  This was my first time seeing this song live, so the whole experience is on another level and it made the show for me.  VC ended in an array of feedback and subtle psychedelia that set up Spiders (Kidsmoke) perfectly.  This version absolutely rocked my face off.  Tweedy played on the sickest solos I've ever heard from him, and they extended it to around 15-16 minutes.  At one point Tweedy had the whole crowd clapping, and the band stopped playing for a few measures, then BOOM! Right back into the "power chord" section of the song. 

The band left the stage and returned for a two song encore which consisted of Heavy Metal Drummer and Outta Sight.   

For those that hate reading:

setlist:
Either Way
You are my Face
Impossible Germany
Sky Blue Sky
I am trying to break your heart
Shot in the arm
Handshake drugs
Kamera
Side with the seeds
Shake it off
Walken
Hate it here

told him to push his way forward with his boys and to meet me at the fountain, out front, afterwards.

i find him, totally gone standing on the fountain and he hugs me...
then proceeds to tell me how he wishes that the dead and phish were around because
if he enjoyed that show and the crowd energy, he can't imagine what jerry and trey coulda done for him.  :-) he continues to amaze me, everyday.

all in all good show. more filler than killer, but hearing stinkfist, 46&2, and third eye made me feel ok about it.
the lights were a helluva lot this year. pretty fun time. hour and a half long tho, i could used a little more...

i couldn't help thinking the same thing for all the young kids i saw having fun at moe the other night that looked WAY TO YOUNG to even have a clue of what went down in the years right before they became the "young jammsters" they are becoming now. i kinda felt bad for them.

i didn't really know what to expect, but he's got a hot little band there.
a number of the jams were very dark and propulsive.
his songs, unfortunately, all sound kinda the same, so by the end of the show i was a little burnt out. same with the jams, by the end it was a bit repetitive.
but overall i enjoyed it.
covers played were stuck in the middle with you, amoreena (yay!) and monkey man in the encore.

Yo La Tengo came to St. Louis a few months ago.  Unfortunately that's the last show I've seen live.  It was a really fun show though.

St. Louis has just started for the summer a weekly series of free concerts.  Tomorrow G Love is playing and Bruce Hornsby's playing on Saturday night.  Robert Randolph is playing one of these upcoming weekends too and I'm really looking forward to that.  Madahoochi is opening, a local band that plays really fun jammed out sets.

Actually, now that I think about it, Madahoochi is the last live show I saw, at an art festival for the general St. Louis public.  I was blown away.  I think I fell in love with the girl who sings in that band.

yeah, the Page show was fun last night.  Me and Hicks (and the as of last weekend new Mrs. Ikki Hicks)  linked up with my friend Jared, who's the guitar/keys player (and author of Mock Song), for some japanese food, and then they rocked out.  We came in 10 minutes before showtime and grabbed really good seats.  There were a few killer moments,  I was impressed for the most part. Page looked good, and played well. Only about 350 people there, but people seemed stoked on it.  The only cover was the T. heads track, and Cars, Trucks and Buses.  The best track was Beauty of a Broken Heart, which they played the tits off of.  A good show.  See you at Wilco, Hicks (if not before....)

I saw Waters at Summerfest July 2nd.  It woulda been nice if he actually sang the tunes these days but i guess the cd that they play with the vocals does prolly sound better than his voice these days.  Still a fun show though and i'm glad i saw him.

Last two shows for me was Widespread Panic Friday & Saturday at the Chicago Theater in Chicago.  Great weekend in chicago, stayed at the W by the sears tower which was off the hook, room #420 taboot.  Then we hit up Navy Pier and the Museum of Science and Industry on Saturday as well as Gino's East for some classic Chicago pie.  .  Both shows were fantastic, Jimmy Herring is still a friggen animal.  Energy at the shows was off the charts and the sound in that room was just simply amazing.

Femi Kuti at 930club in DC on friday. Excellent!!! I have seen him play maybe 10+ times and each time it gets better. It was sold out, and everyone was rocking. The band was so tight, and Femi's voice was really strong. He kept saying "outside of Lagos, i can call DC home!"

went to RATDOG w/ Keller opening for him on Friday.

had a fuckin great time.

exceded expectations.

got to gamble between acts and after on the riverboat casino--fun!



keller was keller, i don't like him, but i knew this going in so i won't hate on him here.

RATDOG, on the other hand i wasnt sure what to expect. it had been prob 9 years since i saw bobby on further(?) and with the recent addition of Kimock all bets were off as to what to expect.

all i can say is i was very suprised how hot the entire show was front to back.
If one thing was missing it was smooth segues/transitions-- though with kimock just filling in for the tour, this was somewhat to be expected.

as far as the setlist, execution, energy, and jams i'd give this show a A-. Which is really good considering what we are talking about.
Almost a completely GDead catalogue setlist with some real bangers placed very well throughout.

A dark star sandwich actually was one of my lesser favorites suprisingly, though this was where the lack of smooth segues sorta hurt.

Corinna, on the other hand, which made my stomach grown when it started,
ended up getting the jam vehicle of the night award with Kimock taking the jam to some dissodent modulationg crazy sweet spaces.

Black peter, was by far my FAvorite song of the night. oddly, yet another song i wouldnt expect to neccesarily get me off, but WOW. they fuckin killed it to the point of  a cool breeze giving me chills like i was rollin or somethin!

China>rider was a excellent choice for a closing combo... it was actually a very different version, but really they couldnt go wrong at that point.

and a perfect encore w/ ripple to bring it all back home. very nice indeed.


All in aLL i was very satisfied. kimock killed it numerous times, and the rest of the band did what they had to do. Bobby was Bobby and STILL can't play slide after 30 years of tryin!!  :lol: ---during LRrooster it was touch and go for a minute---  :lol:
though the motherfucker made me smile like i hadnt in a loooong time, so thanks bobby and crew!  :beers:

^ That is all anyone has said about daft punk on this recent tour. I mean everyone I have heard from has either said it was the best or top 3 concerts they had ever experienced. A few people here or there is one thing but this is coming from a lot of people who have seen shows that, knowing what I know now, I would have given everything to see and have generally seen a lot more shows over the years than myself. I am so excited for this friday...

At one point I was so pumped I almost fought a girl "'lope Greg style" for getting in my space.  Eventually she left because it was "too hot".   :roll:

Last Friday at the RagTagArmada house...

...Cantwell, Gomez and Jordan.... (Art/NoWave/Noize/AvantGarde/Jazz/Cacophonious/Punk/Hip Hop/DeathMetal)

...Black Congo, NC.... (Art/NewNoWave/Folk/Pop/Rock)

and

bullship (shoegaze)

It was completely fan fucking tastic.  Jesus showed up, killed satan, brought satan back to life, turned satan into jesus, and then killed him again all while mourning for the suffering of the poor people of Dafar.  Additionally, Count Chocula filled up with a bowl of wheaties and shot thunderous bolts of lightening out of his eyes into the waiting crowd of serendipitous helpers.

I loved every second of it, and couldn't have been prouder when all of the ladies in the house simultaneously grabbed both of their breasts, bared them and sang "you can't touch this" at the top of their lungs only to be deafened by the sweet anti-melodious thunder booming cracked out jazz drumming of Senor Gomez.

I needed a beer afterwards, and then ate 15 eggs.

Fucking fantastic.

Yo La Tengo at Bimbo's, a swanky little old time club in san francisco.

awesome! lots of psychedelic noise freak-out broken up by dreamy pop songs and trippy quiet interludes.
plus hot covers of bowie's Heroes and modern lovers' Roadrunner (which i last heard played on the trey tour when jerry harrison turned up at the warfield).

such a great show, and long, too, almost 2 1/2 hours.

i wish i'd known about them sooner. i will be making a point of seeing them any chance i get from now on.

Keller,

They'll either do Cortez or Watchtower.  Dave's take on watchtower is blasphemes in my opinion, Hendrix made it a psychedelic masterpiece, and Dave made it a favorite sing along for the Sorostitutes.  If its anything like the Central Park sit-in, my ass ---------------------> out the door and in the bars.

North MS allstars have been bringin the heat for a couple of years, but as of late, they have been really practicing in Oxford under mystery billings with a two dollar cover!  They just have a great feeling of each others b/c they have been playing together for 12 years or so.  I love the Electric Blue Watermelon, perfectly pieced together album.  Go Gumbo!

When Trucks passes gas, people mistake it for the lost symphonies of Mozart.  Tears of joy occur from such poignant odors and glorious sounds.   :wink:

I have a few NMA records in my collection as well as a few shows that I've downloaded, and its not all that for me.  I saw them open for panic a few times and they me made really bored (like Bisco bored).  If your getting owned by Panic and George McConnell is the panic guitarist, well its not good.  Which is why panic fired McConnell but that is another thread.   

As RJ pointed out:
blues power trio = not an original concept

That's how.
see Cream or old school Mule for a real face melt (complete with free toy and medium drink if you order now).

Now let us address the questions that needs to be asked:

What substances were you on?  Had you been drinking?



Title: Re: Last Show Attended?
Post by: Gumbo72203 on August 09, 2007, 12:50:36 PM
Hahaha...   I was wondering when that would come up.  I'll just re-hash the whole story.  We got to SPAC around...  3:30-4ish.  Right as we parked, my friend got his cooler out of the trunk.  This was when I put the two tabs under my bottom lip that I'd had.  Bear in mind I'd had these for....  at least 3 months now, sitting behind some stuff on a bookshelf in my room.  I wasn't sure if they'd be any good at all anymore, seeing as the people who had some originally said they weren't any good. 

anyway, after i put them in, I had one beer.  I hadn't eaten in a little while, nor drank in a while, so the one beer gave me a pretty nice buzz.  Not a half hour after I put the tabs in/finished the beer, I had that "turn on" moment, where you feel yourself get "activated" sort of, where you feel the acid turn on in your system.  This was the fastest I'd ever come up, and it was very, very intense; reminding me what it was like my 2nd time ever taking it when I almost wigged early on.  But I kept it together. 

We walked around for a little while and burned in the woods, and then headed in.  by the time we got there, it was around 6 probably, and they went maybe 15 minutes after we got in.  I was tripping by this point, but I didn't peak until a little bit into their set.  It wasn't the most visual trip, although there were plenty of trails; it was a lot more mental and emotional.  It was surprisingly clear, though.  Not the most intense trip, but it was very nice.  great success.  haha


but I've been pumping them in my car stereo ever since I got home and downloaded a couple shows from their current tour, and I love it. 

so there ;)  haha

he fucking owned tho.  he seemed a little timid at first, but he got it goin reallll fuckin good.  In Memory of Elizabeth Reed was just monstrous.  he was so much better than the Allmans.

Hahaha...   I was wondering when that would come up.  I'll just re-hash the whole story.  We got to SPAC around...  3:30-4ish.  Right as we parked, my friend got his cooler out of the trunk.  This was when I put the two tabs under my bottom lip that I'd had.  Bear in mind I'd had these for....  at least 3 months now, sitting behind some stuff on a bookshelf in my room.  I wasn't sure if they'd be any good at all anymore, seeing as the people who had some originally said they weren't any good. 

anyway, after i put them in, I had one beer.  I hadn't eaten in a little while, nor drank in a while, so the one beer gave me a pretty nice buzz.  Not a half hour after I put the tabs in/finished the beer, I had that "turn on" moment, where you feel yourself get "activated" sort of, where you feel the acid turn on in your system.  This was the fastest I'd ever come up, and it was very, very intense; reminding me what it was like my 2nd time ever taking it when I almost wigged early on.  But I kept it together. 

We walked around for a little while and burned in the woods, and then headed in.  by the time we got there, it was around 6 probably, and they went maybe 15 minutes after we got in.  I was tripping by this point, but I didn't peak until a little bit into their set.  It wasn't the most visual trip, although there were plenty of trails; it was a lot more mental and emotional.  It was surprisingly clear, though.  Not the most intense trip, but it was very nice.  great success.  haha


but I've been pumping them in my car stereo ever since I got home and downloaded a couple shows from their current tour, and I love it. 

so there ;)  haha
the defense rests your honor.  We have no more witnesses.

Best venue in NH. Very intimate, and they get some great bands.

They have great beer and good food.


The show was phenominal. Every time I see these cats they have increased energy.
Last night they were saying that the venue/crowd always feels like a home show.

If you get a chance to catch these guys.... Do it.

I saw them about 2 years ago before a mmw show and really didn't enjoy it although it was very slow and chill while I was in a very different mood altogether, which could effect it.

Title: Re: Last Show Attended?
Post by: Blaise on August 21, 2007, 08:28:25 AM
shpongle was good but, imo, it didn't even compare to hallucinogen in dub, which is simon posford on guitar/synth, ott behind a huge board, and a bassist and drummer I didn't recognize. They really brought a lot of energy and tore up songs like gamma goblins and solstice. Barber also sat in with them and raised the energy another notch. Unfortunately, the main stage was running late and this set directly conflicted with amon tobin. Shpongle was fun but since it was setbreak I was sort of running all over the place.

I have some pictures I can post tonight.

Another highlight, grimace federation. Had their album and never listened to it that much but they impressed me and reminded me of tortoise a bit. They also covered the single from the arcade fire - funeral cd. Not famaliar with the song name though, I listened to the cd a few times and never liked it as much as everyone else but after hearing the song played by grimace I found some new love for the track.

Title: Re: Last Show Attended?
Post by: Blaise on August 23, 2007, 11:31:22 AM
I heard shpongle was the same as well although I can't confirm since he doesn't allow taping. Girl talk was great although I only got to see the end due to the overlap with sts9. I had heard about all the people on the stage and stuff but really couldn't imagine it until I saw it and girl talk himself, shirtless, getting down harder then everyone else. Bassnectar was goof, nothing great. I've seen him way too many times so I've heard just about everything he played but considering his segmented fan base on the east coast, he definelty converted some people. It seems to be one of those east/west coast deals and the bisco scene in general has been pretty close minded when it comes to bassnectar (did anyone see the pitchfork review of his new cd, pretty comical and they tore it apart, not that I listen or trust all of their reviews, they gave a flaming lips cd a zero before).

Beastie Boys instrumental show at the Warfield, San Francisco

awesome show! it was basically my dream beastie boys show. lots of instrumental grooves, with a number of hip hop  and other vocal songs thrown in at all the right places. great pacing to the show. great playing. a little loose, actually, since they're not genius musicians, but all kinds of great grooves. they played a number of songs from the new album, but i think Check Your Head was the most represented album at the show. the set ended with great takes on Gratitude and Whatcha Want.

for the encore they did two tracks with mixmaster mike doing the beats and the boys rapping, sure shot and one other. then they all picked up instruments again and tore the still beating heart out of sabotage.

let's see if i can manage to put up a couple photos i took...

Southern Comfort Music Experience - Willow Island @ Alliant Energy Center - Madison, WI
9/8/2007

10 or so bands, 2 stages, free (admission not booze) and as much so co as you could ever want.  I mainly went to checkout a local band my friends play in and then the Flaming Lips were the headliner.  Some of the other bands were Cold War Kids, Cowboy Mouth, the sick puppies or some shit and a bunch of other random bands I didnt know.

I thought the lips were just fucking fantastic.  I had never seen them before and only had listened to them a few times over the years, but i've always heard how crazy their shows are.  I also had a press pass so i took my slr and figured it would be a fun evening.  The band was having an absolute blast and didn't stop smiling the whole show, it was a great time.  I can see this could very much be a novelty, as i'm sure shows are very similar night to night and even tour to tour, but for my first time seeing them i loved every minute of it and haven't walked away from a show that like that in a long time.  It was fun watching insane Wayne constantly going to his box of toys and bringing something new out every time, very entertaining.

Cold War Kids on the other hand sucked big time, what a bunch of weirdos.

How was Watchtower?
a
:lol:
it was on par with other versions I've heard.     
As I don't listen to Dave's shows on a regular basis, so I can't really comment on if it was a great/good version.  It did get the crowd dancing really hard.  It also invoked the loudest sing a long of the evening.  I will add that the trumpet player did play a really nice solo during watchtower and I was quite impressed with him.  The piano player is really talented as well, as he did a nice job of comping in many of the songs.  I really enjoyed One Sweet World and Warehouse.  I was puzzled that few people knew the audience participation in that song.  The few live releases I do own, all have the "whew" scream from the crowd.  Pretty much everyone around me missed the first one but picked up the second time around. 

Overall, I had a great time besides a few asshole fans.  Some chick did pop a squat next to me and it was really gross to see her piss like that.  I bailed while she was still in progress.  I also saw some high school chick puke and then face plant into it.  She was out (vodka TKO).  I saw this immediately after the "squat" incident.  I decided to grab a few bottles of water and chill at the back of the park.  It was really hot the whole time, so I was only drinking water.  I reached the back of the park right as So Much To Say began.  Which was about a 15 minute walk for me.  My friends and I got in early, so we staked out a spot stage left and about 20 feet from the stage.  I stayed at the back of the park and marveled at the spectacle of so many people(I know it was sold out and they had 50,000 people at least.).  I met up with my friends during Too Much and resumed my original spot.  The set up was really cool too.  Dave had lights on stage and some set up half way back from the end of the crowd.  The lights were well done.   

I really enjoyed the Allmans set and thought they performed really well.  Derek and Warren were on last night, and Derek had some really nasty solos.  His intro in Liz Reed was really sick.  He was doing this vibrato volume swell and playing with the melody.  Also this was the peak of irony, a lady dies (causes unknown at this time) and as the ambulance arrives, Greg begins Liz Reed.  During the beginning of Liz Reed, I was watching the band watch the medics and it definitely added a melancholy type vibe to the song. 
Near perfect execution by the brothers last night.  A few flubs in the beginning of the set, but the last hour was really well played.  The terrapin jam was subtle, but a nice ode to the dead.  The jam out of drums was really melodic and built nicely into a well played segue into mountain jam (reprise).  The opening jam was also really cool, it was really model and had a nice psychedelic sound to it.

Post by: Bobafett on September 10, 2007, 10:07:36 AM
cool phan, glad you enjoyed it.  I remember my 3 DMB shows had puking/pissin/passing out as well, really what turned me off.  I have always thought the band part of dmB was really strong, just the fan base did me in.  If only i had 2000 rolls to sell!
Title: Re: Last Show Attended?
Post by: sophist on September 10, 2007, 04:40:14 PM
rolls? I wouldn't think that would go over with that crowd.  I heard an abundance of "straight edge" kids before the ABB set and during the set change as well.  I did smell weed the whole time though, but no one from my position looked like they were on hard drugs.

with a ramones cover, which if i was not pleasantly

GO SEE THIS BAND, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!!!!

That's an understatement.  I saw her at All Good, and was impressed, but seeing her outside is way different than seeing her in a small room like the 8 x 10, formerly known as the funkbox.  She was great!

just got home from my first railroad earth show. 

talk about a lot of fun.  they got bumped from their original june date so that the smashing pumpkins could play for a week at the orange peel...so needless to say there was a short SP tribute..."despite all my rage i am still just a rat in a cage"...bluegrass style.  priceless

Normally I am very much on the ANTI UM TRAIN, i've driven that train many times actually.  But tonight they were playing a block from my apartment, some friends were coming that i hadnt seen in a while and i had a photo pass, so i decided to go and I enjoyed it for the most part.  Pretty solid show and more enjoyable than the past 20 or so i've seen since 2000.  All my pics here...

Jeff said we were much better than his hometown crowd last night.

Well, 4 inches of rain always makes amphitheatres nice, but somehow the rain stopped during the Wilco set, then began again immediately afterwards.  We got there and finished our beers in the car, then went to will call.  Our tix were primo and came with backstage pass/VIP access (Thanks Andy!).  Sweet, so we got free beer and food before, then chilled with some Nils, Jody Stephens, and John for a while.

As far as music, it was prime grade.  I love A shot in the Arm, so great start.  They really got cooking in I Am Trying To Break Your Heart, with a good 10 + min. jam, heavy distortion and feedback, which i deemed chaos.  Jeff seemed to be in good spirits despite a good 8 hour drive, and told security to just let everyone come down front, which totally spoiled our great seats, but hey, there were only 1K there at the most.  Handshake Drugs also featured some sick feedback jamming that melted into impossible germany.  Walken was another good extended version that kicked into On and On.  For the encores we went back to the lawn so i could get some pics with a different angle (to be uploaded on Sunday)  and they all were great.  if you guys don't know Big Star, J. Stephens 70's band, check them out.  (they originally did the theme to That 70's show)

It was a great time and i suggest everyone go see them when you can.  It's worth it, and that is becoming rare these days.

had a pretty good weekend:

9/14/2007:  Umphrey's McGee
Canopy Club, Champaign, IL

pretty good show by UM standards.  one guy I know who sees every um show within 150 miles kept saying "they were good last night, but they're fucking great tonight".  the first set was mostly old um songs like 2x2 and Ringo (one of my favorites).  Brian Felix, formerly of OM Trio, sat in on "sexy organ" for a lengthy jam.  they opened the second set with some Phil-era Genesis that I could have done without, then played Nemo, and stuck this jam in the middle that was double bass blast beats and shred guitar, ala Slayer, for about ten minutes, then back into Nemo.  they dedicated the jam to the "double prong" two-hand sign of the devil.  typical umphrey's goofiness.  nice Bridgeless encore.  but my favorite part of the night was the humongous group cheer that went up when Daryle Ward hit the three-run double in the top of the ninth, about five minute before UM went on.  I thought they would wait until the game was over to go on (we could see them watching it on the bus as we were walking up), but they spared us the stress of watching Dempster and Howry's near meltdown.  Cumdog appropriately was wearing his Zambrano jersey.

9/15/2007:  John McLaughlin & The 4th Dimension
Krannert Center, Champaign, IL

badass Mark Mondesir on drums, 23 year old Jaco-style bass phenom Hadrien Feraud (who didn't play anything longer than a sixteenth note all night), and Gary Husband on keyboards (yes the drummer Gary Husband) and occasional mini-kit.  it took them about 25 minutes to get warmed up and gel as a unit, and the improv during this time was very unenjoyable to my ears.  lots of wasted notes, and weird keyboard experimentation (I would guess that he was playing on rented equipment).  but after that, they proceded to blow my mind for 75 minutes.  the highlight was the last song they played, which I can't remember the name of but I'm pretty sure it's from the Heart Of Things album.  about twenty minutes long, with six or seven distinct sections, one of which was very similar to Jeff Back's version of "Cause We've Ended As Lovers", phenomenal solo spots from every one in the band, a great drum duel between Mark and Gary, and of course John Fucking McLaughlin shredding our faces off.  He played a Godin Freeway SE plugged straight into a Marshall JCM combo, very little knob tweaking, and he only tuned once, which was the first time in ages I've seem someone audibly tune by harmonics onstage.  Obviously he wailed a lot, but I was really impressed by his comping, very sparse but intriguing and effective, and perfectly locked in with the band.

sorry if my review doesn't make sense, but I don't think there are words in the english language for some of the things that were going on last night.

the two day Treasure Island Music Festival here in san francisco.
first time they've put this on. pretty cool. great view of the city out there.
lots of bands, none of which i'd seen before, nice to get a sample.
 
Modest Mouse put on the best set. they're damn good. i'd heard mixed reviews of their shows, but they really nailed it.
Spoon was also very good. a few of their songs are a little bland and sound too much the same, but the good parts of the show were really good.
Thievery Corporation put on a great set too. i wasn't sure how they'd translate live, but it worked really well.
The Gotan Project was interesting. tango music meets electronic dance beats. or something. didn't really do it for me, but not bad.
Built To Spill was really boring and bland. their best song was a cover of a random brian eno song.
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, also kind of generic sounding.
the 'singer and a dj' antics of both Ghostland Observatory and M.I.A. were really dull to see live. in a dance club that might be cool, but it's hard for me to get into stuff like that in a live setting.
i caught a little of Mocean Worker, they were cool, funky kind of grooves. i'll try to catch them again.

guess those were the ones that made some kind of impression. cool festival overall. hope they do it next year.

two nights at the fillmore, 9/21 and 22.

great shows. i'd never seen them play with sco before. they work great together.
first night they played no songs from their first album. one miles cover. one joe zawinul cover, presumably since he just died.
second night they played three songs from the first album, all of which were hot.
and they did julia both nights (first night's was better).

i'd recommend everyone go see them, but you already know...

yes - nice pics. thanks.

Saw Ben Harper last night. Warm up was Piers Facinni - brooding singer/songwriter type. Kinda liked his set.
Harper's set was mostly the new cd. In general it was a near total departure from his prior "format". Imo it's kinda cool that he took a risk and changed it up. Also was kinda cool to hear Masters of War during the encore, although it might be considered an obvious choice for a Dylan cover these days. Anyway, fun show.

How was the show?

show was great, actually. thanks for remembering we went and asking about it :)
seats weren't so hott, but i had seen ryan at the Norva before... so i wasn't so sad that my visibility was low.
you could def. tell ryan loves the phil and friends sounds and that tone was very prevalent the entire gig.
most of the stuff was from cold roses, gold, and easy tiger, if i'm remembering correctly...
the ending had 2 from heartbreaker...
he encored&ended the show with 'my sweet carolina' which has the line about missing KY.
i didn't ness. miss KY while i was there... but the sweetest winds do blow across the south :)

the cardnials were tight, so it was neat to see him play with them.
the norva show was just a drunk man and a piano.  :wink:
all in all, if you get the chance, see them this time around.

crowd interaction was cool, too. apparently, no matter how close anyone was or how loud they yelled...
the audience sounded like 'cavemen' to him. got some good laughs :)

and yeah, thanks for that link!!

*edit*
oh oh oh, and the whole 'throwing up in my own mouth' part?
humourous. he's goes off on a tangent about how he was singing that last song and tried not to spit
chunks across the stage   :-)

Beantown jazz fest - yesterday
Bobby Hutcherson - straight ahead jazz, had a good piano player with him, Billy Drummond did a nice job on drums

Mike Stern - tore it up, as expected. Tenor player was good too.

The whole day had a great vibe. Great mix of people were out - all ages, Berklee types, businessman types, black, white, and everything in between. They have it the same weekend every year - looking forward to the next one :-)

I saw Gruff Rhys (lead singer of the Super Furry Animals) this past Thursday at Schuba's in Chi-town.  He played most of the  songs from Candylion and a few from his first solo record.  He had a girl named Lisa from a Welsh folk band playing with him.  She had a beautiful voice and also played toy keyboards and assorted other gizmos such as Malcolm The Falcon and Maria (the metronome).  on about half the songs they were joined by a drummer named Cliff, and I spent most of the night trying to figure out where I had seen Cliff before.  It took me three days to realize that he is the current drummer with The Flaming Lips.

Gruff played acoustic guitar with "confidence and panache".  After listening to SFA for almost ten years, I didn't know that he is left handed, and plays a right handed guitar upside down but not restrung.  I don't think I have ever seen anyone do that before.  The show ended with a twenty minute version of Skylon, which was hilarious and featured the gorgeous Lisa portraying the mediocre actress.

I would whole-heartedly recommend seeing this show, but unfortunately this was the last one of the tour.  Can't wait till the full blown SFA tour in early 2008!

Sweet!
Pretty sure mopper smurf caught them in Amsterdam earlier this year.
His latest album is fantastic and much more accessible than his first.
Here's the video for the single if anyone is interested.

they spent the entire show sitting behind a table like that.  might even be the same one.  they didn't bring any construction paper, but that xylophone was there.

Lisa is even more beautiful in person.  I just began kicking myself all over again for not saying hi to her after the show.  not that I would have had much to say after that...


edit because I completely forgot about the banner.  at the end of one of the songs, Gruff reached behind him and held up this regal purple banner with the words "the very best of Neil Diamond" stitched into it.  he said it had absolutely no function, as you couldn't even hold it up at a Neil Diamond concert, and he brought it on tour to "give it a sense of purpose", which is really really funny if you say it in a Welsh accent.

Sound Tribe Sector 9
10/5/2007
Barrymore Theater - Madison, WI

Tour closer, these guys went out with a bang.  Packed house - sold out tons of peeps looking for tickets and the boys went off.  I hadn't really seen them since probably early 2003 and didn't really even listen all that much but last summer after their debut at Red Rocks on 9-9-2006 that show was just pure heat and I was hooked in again.  Sadly I didn't get to see them until a good year later and then some but man they did not disappoint and have really taken their shows to the next level.  The crowd all night was just totally loving every second of it , just incredible energy.  Velmer is just such a fucking BEAST on the drums.

we just decided to drive to the next town over, across the river in WV Saturday night.
not expecting to find really anythign to do, but there are bars there and no bars in my home town unless you count shitty ass restaurant bars.

anywho, we drove by a really great little place in huntington that my friends who threw the halloween festi always play.

flipped out when we saw who was playing.
these guys used to rock our downtown all the time.
i wish they'd come back.

if you like funk jazz, check these gentlemen out.
they were minus the sax saturday night but they still rocked the house :)

Busdriver, Daedelus, AntiMC, Food For Animals
Sonar Nightclub
Baltimore, MD

Food for Animals:  2 MC's and 1 guy on a Mac.  Hip-Hop.  Not my cup of tea, but they weren't too bad. :roll:

Anti-MC:  DJ for Busdriver and a friend of his doing Electronica/Funky Beats, while playing guitar and bass.  Cool stuff, they were the real warm-up.

Daedelus:  One man show.  He had a Mac, mixer, and a homemade instument called the "Monome".  That thing was pretty wild.  I talked to him after his set, and he said that a friend built it for him.  It was a small LED board?, about 9x9 inches.  He had it propped up so the audience could see what he was doing.  It had 4 tracks that he could work with, and by touching the board he could make the beats slowdown, or speed up.  I know this isn't the best explanation, I'll get my g/f to upload a pic for me. 

He was great, really had the crowd going.  Until his Mac died.  Right on stage.  About 40 min into his set.  He was close to the finish of his set, so we had been good and entertained.  Very cool stuff.

Busdriver:  Amazing show.  2 DJ's this time, and Busdriver was sporting a colostomy bag.  Bad kidneys?  It didn't take away from his performance.  He rocked the club till the house lights came up!

All in all a great show, and an awesome 1yr anniversary show for me and my girl.

Check out Busdriver or Daedelus myspace pages.  Good stuff from Cali. :-D

Some highlights were Too High > Master Blaster Jammin', Do I Do, Overjoyed, Sir Duke > I Wish.  A few sappy ballads but that's par for the course.  Tight band, fun show, super funky.

TORONTO - Think of all the people last night at the Air Canada Centre. And now think that some of them were created while parents listened to romantic Stevie Wonder hits.

The living legend, now in his fifth decade of music but still only 57 years old, performed for more than two hours last night as part of his current A Wonder Autumn Night North American tour. Yet despite the fact he took to the stage approximately 30 minutes later than was scheduled, Wonder seemed to make up for the lost time with a collection of his many hits.

Dressed in brown and escorted out by his two supporting vocalists, Wonder opened the show not by singing but by giving fans a backgrounder behind the reason for the tour, primarily the death of his mother last year. After mentioning that his daughter was unable to be a backing vocalist this evening due to a chest infection, Wonder and his large 10-piece supporting cast opened with Love's in Need of Love Today from his 1976 masterpiece Songs in the Key of Life.

Wonder, who released his last studio album in 2005, has a catalogue of songs that few can dream of.

Whether it was the funky groove of Too High that got some of the generation-spanning crowd off their feet or the slow, romantic, dim-the-lights mood of Visions, Wonder was quite adept at changing gears basically on a dime.

However it was also this same shifty nature that resulted in some moments going on too long or sagging. Following the strong one-two punch of Living For the City and the reggae-rooted Master Blaster (Jammin'), Wonder took a rather elongated route towards Higher Ground. While the song definitely made fans forget the Red Hot Chili Peppers had covered the track, a medley which included We Are Family as well as Marvin Gaye's I Heard it Through the Grapevine seemed a bit much.
   

This was also the case later on near the homestretch when after the nugget Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours, Wonder opted to remake the song in a country, honky tonk fashion. He also managed to squeeze in a snippet of Charlie Rich's Behind Closed Doors for good measure.

Other times Wonder told of stories about his early musical career, including meeting a mother and daughter which would later become the inspiration behind My Cherie Amour.

Thankfully though, when not fully fleshing out songs, Wonder ensured that fans were left with the romantic numbers in spades, including My Cherie Amour, Overjoyed and Ribbon in the Sky. During Ribbon in the Sky, Wonder again went off on a tangent, getting the men to do one vocal part while the women did another, finally resulting in all singing along much to Wonder's delight.

Yet for all of the great material presented, there were a few numbers near the end which were strong medleys but still medleys. This included portions of Sir Duke and You Are the Sunshine of My Life, the latter from 1972's Talking Book album.

However, Wonder made sure to give another signature Superstition all of the time that it justly deserved, including bringing out Canadian singer Glenn Lewis to help out on portions.

Yeah dude, they came out with their guns blazin' playing Exactly Where I'm At, Pork Roll Egg and Cheese, Spinal Meningitis, Bananas and Blow and Voodoo Lady all in the first half hour.  They seemed to focus especially on Chocolate and Cheese and White Pepper last night, which was great because they are two of my favorites.  It's good to know that even if the new album blows they can still rock it live.  Scored a crazy-ass poster too, big ups to Caravan for storing it for me during the show.

did DSO stop playing an actual GD show/date? that always impressed me but i think original setlists is a good direction at this point.

last couple weeks saw:

Benevento/Russo. really good. though i like them better when mike plays, too.

Yo La Tengo. doing a mostly acoustic show where they answered questions from the audience in between songs. awesome. such a fun band live with a great vibe. i will see them any time they play from now on. funniest moment was when someone asked why they have a song called "Let's Save Tony Orlando's House." the bassist explained that when they jam in the studio, he's in charge of labelling and keeping track of the recordings to use for possible future songs. so for awhile he started naming all the jams after movies starring troy mcclure from the simpsons, as in, "you may recall me from such telethons as 'let's save tony orlando's house." then one day as they're cutting the album, the guitarist comes in with lyrics for a song with that name, not knowing where it came from.

Ween. i don't know them well at all, but it was a fun show. all about the ROCK live, i guess. got a little monotonous for me near the end, still a good time.

Govt Mule. great band, too bad their original songs are so dull. i mean, as songs. the guitar playing is always hot. best part of the show was when they blew the fucking roof off with neil young's 'southern man.'


out here for NYE i can see Cake at the warfield, or Les at the fillmore. hm....

Quote from: Boston Globe

Grateful for his time among the Dead
Group's longtime publicist cherishes his connection with the band

Globe Staff / November 11, 2007

Dennis McNally was the Grateful Dead's longtime publicist and is the author of "A Long Strange Trip: The Inside History of the Grateful Dead." But before Jerry Garcia invited him to join "the family," McNally earned a master's degree and PhD in American history at UMass-Amherst. His dissertation about Jack Kerouac was published in 1979 as "Desolate Angel: Jack Kerouac, the Beat Generation, and America."

McNally, who delivers the keynote address Friday at UMass-Amherst's three-day Grateful Dead symposium, "Unbroken Chain," called recently to chat about the band's legacy, the fans' devotion, and what Garcia would think of all the hoopla.

Q: I have to ask. How many Dead shows have you been to?

A: I'd been to around 200 before I got hired. The ones after that don't really count . . . but they did around 80 a year, and I was with them for 12 [years], so roughly 1,200. That's about half of all the Dead shows, although records are a bit patchy from the early years, as you can imagine.

Q: What will you talk about in your keynote address?

A: College audiences love pot jokes, but as the publicist, I always tried to get people to understand that the scene was a lot more complex and nuanced than the stereotype. And I pretty much failed, because the stereotype of the Dead, of what being a hippie meant and what the band meant, was enormous. It's so easily manipulated and it's reductionist, and that's the point of the conference.

Q: In what ways do you see the Dead as a topic for scholarly inquiry?

A: I would argue that we're still living with the heritage of the '60s, and a superb way of paying attention to the '60s is to pay attention to what the Dead did. Ask Karl Rove. He and his kindred souls have manipulated voters with fearsome images of the '60s.

Q: Why now? Is there some significance to this moment in time as regards the Dead's cultural legacy?

A: To some extent, yeah. We live in dark and tragic times. The whole Grateful Dead thing was a dream of tribal consciousness, of a genuine community where you gather to celebrate. These are healthy human needs. Ask the anthropologists.

Q: What was the essence of the band's lure? Why all these years later are people still drawn to it?

A: It's two things. On the musical side it's improvisation. Certain things can happen via improv, when skilled musicians cast aside the rules, that rarely happen in structured music. It's called magic, and it invites a certain response. The Dead jumps off cliffs. Sometimes you fly and sometimes you land on the rocks. But most musicians don't take that risk. The other is a set of ethics that are part of a very old tradition, through Thoreau and Whitman, which is the bohemian response to industrialization. That involved . . . anti-materialism, spiritual search, and a double-sided coin called hedonism. These things have been going on for a very long time, and the Dead came to embody them. It has tremendous appeal.

Q: What do you make of the band's musical legacy, the so-called jam-band scene?

A: The principle of improv is the Dead's fundamental legacy, and frankly, most of the current jam bands are locking down a groove and letting somebody solo over it. It's not true improv.

Q: Do you keep any of the Dead's secrets?

A: There was one moment where a person used a racial epithet, and I was going to include it in the book and somebody else convinced me not to because, although it was extreme, it was anomalous. I kept Jerry's drug addiction secret for a long time as their publicist. We all did.

Q: What would Jerry think of the symposium?

A: He'd think what Bob Weir said, which is that academics always took the band more seriously than it took itself. One of the reasons Jerry struggled with depression and self-medicated in dumb ways was that people took him too seriously and didn't treat him like a person. He became god-like. He could goof on it, but there were times when it got to be too much.

Quote from: Boston Herald

‘Chain’ conference at UMass links Grateful Dead, modern life


After Jerry Garcia died in August of 1995, fans of the Grateful Dead embraced an impressive and succinct summation of the band’s legacy: 38,086 songs played at 2,317 shows in 298 cities by 11 band members in one band.

This abstract also spoke to the studious, often slavish, devotion that Deadheads held for their favorites. Now this allegiance is going under the academic microscope. The University of Massachusetts at Amherst will host “Unbroken Chain: the Grateful Dead in Music, Culture and Memory” this Friday to Sunday.

The event is being billed as the largest conference on the Dead and the first held by a major university. In addition to panel discussions, gallery exhibits and, of course, live music, participants will include members of the Dead scene such as longtime publicist Dennis McNally and Garcia’s ex-wife, Carolyn Adams Garcia, better known as Mountain Girl.

For McNally, who received a doctorate in American history from UMass in 1978 and is the event’s keynote speaker, tying the Dead in to serious study makes perfect sense.

“History, English, audio engineering, business, religion, sociology,” McNally said, “any number of different disciplines can be studied using the Grateful Dead as a focus.”

Indeed. With Dave Matthews Band, Pearl Jam and other bands selling tickets directly to fans and allowing them to tape performances, it seems that the Dead’s business model - which McNally confessed “looked from the outside as insane” - has stood up. It could be argued that the Dead’s pre-Internet tape-trading circles were proto peer-to-peer networks.

“A lot of those early computer programmers were out on Dead tour,” Mountain Girl said.

“When the World Wide Web was first getting started, something like 60 percent of the data transmitted was Dead stuff. The whole music sharing thing on the Internet really got started with Dead shows.”

The basis for academic discussion of this uniquely American phenomenon is valid, but it begs the question: Does studying the band take the fun out of the Dead experience?

“Nah,” McNally replied. “There are going to be moments where somebody is going to say something and I’m going to quiver inside and think, ‘C’mon!’ At the end of the day, though, everyone is going to get a beer and listen to some music” - the American Beauty Project performs on Friday, Dark Star Orchestra on Saturday - “and realize that (Unbroken Chain) is both thinking about stuff in a careful and considerate way as well as participating in it.”

“I’m gonna be watching myself to stay on the fun side because I don’t want to get sucked into having to be all serious,” Mountain Girl said. “But it’s kinda this OK? or do we convert the spoken kinda to ‘kind of’ usually?? fun to have academia paying a little attention to us, to have it settled into Americana because it really happened.”

Is there something today’s youth can learn from the Dead experience?

“You can go your own way, choose your values and in the long run be respected for it, despite taking a lot of grief in the interval,” McNally said. “That seems like a very healthy message to me.”

Mountain Girl concurred.

“Follow your nose to the thing that turns you on the most,” she said. “Hopefully it’s something safe and sane. But follow your curiosity to the outer limits - or at least your own inner limits.”

Dark Star Orchestra raises the Dead
By Kathleen Pierce, kpierce@lowellsun.com
Article Last Updated: 11/10/2007 06:35:26 AM EST

As keyboard player for Grateful Dead cover band Dark Star Orchestra, Rob Barraco is not what you think.

"I work out, run, eat properly, get plenty of sleep. I'm not a big partier. None of us could withstand the rigors if we were," said the 51-year-old musician.

A bunch of guys, and one woman, touring the country singing songs that launched the hippie-movement like "Sugar Magnolia" exhaling on treadmills instead of inhaling on spliffs?

The times, they are a-changed.

To recreate the thousands of concerts the Grateful Dead performed from 1972 to 1995, DSO stays alert, well-practiced and well-oiled. They have to be tight to have been endorsed by Bob Weir, the former Dead guitarist who has joined them on stage.

"We are true to the original format. We are creating an energy. We are filling a void; we are selling out every show," said Barraco, who sounds as excited as a kid in his first band.

Like the Beatles, Grateful Dead cover bands are easy to find. But Beatlemania this band is not.

"Those guys are recreating note for note. We are actually taking this music, covering the style in the arrangements and making the stuff up," said Barraco, who digs DSO's improvisational style.

"I've done things where you had to memorize a set list and do the same thing over and over; after a few nights, you want to hang yourself."

Each DSO show is hand-picked from a database of Dead concerts, called the Deadbase. To stay fresh, they never play the same concert in the same city. Baccaro uses time-specific keyboards of the era they are channeling. If the year is 1984, he's banging a Hammond B-3. If it's earlier, he's synthesized out. The mighty drum set from the '80s blows most people away, he said.

Barraco joined the band after keyboardist Scott Larned died of a heart attack while on tour in April 2005.

"I was playing with Phil Lesh and Friends when they called me up. I worked with him all of last year. I had to say no to him to join Dark Star. It's not easy to say no to Phil Lesh."

Still, playing jam-heavy songs like "Fire On the Mountain," and "One More Saturday Night," was not something Barraco, who lives on Long Island, imagined when he first started out.

"I was a real jazz snob. I got sucked into the Zen Trickers. Then played with Phil full-time and performed with the Dead."

With a steady following of Deadheads, both old and new, DSO does not compete with Weir's band Ratdog, or the other projects of original Dead members.

"We play the music more like the Dead played in the time. Bobby slowed those things down. He's pretty jazzy."

They are serious about the music, but the goal is to keep the warm vibes, high times and free love rolling.

"If you're not having fun creating art, then you shouldn't be doing it."

I saw Zappa Plays Zappa last night...It was killer.  Dweezil can fucking RIP!  In a way too, he has a certain amount of emotion that Frank's playing lacked.  Don't get me wrong, FZ was/is and always will be the man, but I always thought that while he was kicking ass, his git playing was a *touch* clinical/sterile.  technically precise and amazing, but kinda cold, which worked, but Dweezil was nailing it last night, and there were some virtual cameos by Frank as well (guitar and vocals) that were really cool.  Highlights were Carolina Hardcore Ecstasy and Pigmy Twilight.....It was all really good, and I'm stoked I went.

what did you think of the classical composition segment Caravan? if they played it. I'm not one to sit around and listen to Franks classical stuff, but they really nailed it in DC. plus the Joe's Garage was like dumbing down 700% after. Dweezil with the Strat playing like four notes. Good stuff.

Went to see the Hold Steady last night with my brother. He bought the tix and had an extra so i went with him. Had never heard them before so went in cold. I got bored after the 2nd song and left the club and made calls on my phone and smoked cigarettes out front of the club whilw he stayed. Sounded like Husker Du, i think i saw them 15 years ago, dont need to see a shabby rip off of them now. PLus, i hate hipsters.

Only good thing was that Art Brut opened. They were pretty good.

John Scofield 10/27/07 Blue Note Cafe, NYC

Sick show. There was a lot of shredding. Unfortunately, he played one 60 minute set. For a $35 ticket, it was very disappointing. I bought drinks without being carded, so that was pretty neat.

Lotus 11/24/07 World Cafe, Philly

The show was a dance party. Lotus's compositions are unique and very melodic, but they are incredibly repetitive. I was bored with what was being played half the time. Once the guitarist got improvising however, shit hit the fan. They peaked hard at least three times and each was incredible. In conclusion, I was disappointed that they never really took any of their jams anywhere. They simply laid down a groove and let the guitarist solo. Shit gets old, fast.

i was lucky enough (in my opinion) to catch chris berry's panjea w/ michael kang a few months ago.  shortly before that i saw ivan neville's dumpstaphunk.  dumpstaphunk is some pretty crunchy funk; i love the stuff.

i usually catch shows heavily in the summer and around new year's eve.  aside from those times, i probably only catch a show ever three to four months (the summer shows are usually festivals, so i'm still able to catch most acts i really want to).

Get In The Van my Canadian bro..!   :lol:

Yeah, I can recommend some shows.  But if your roommate is all about it, you've probably heard enough.  The umph seems to be a yes or no, no lukewarm thing.

upon first listen to UM, in which i was pretty coked up, i thought they were the firE, like phish when they were "on"...after hearing it for 6 months and seeing them 2 times, i really just don't care for it anymore...they got the talent and musicianship, but just nothing new and catchy enough for me.  My buddies opened for them not too long ago and said they were really nice guys, and only 1 smoked the doob.  i don't beleive it.

saw McCoy Tyner the other night. He's about 70 and still has it.

Watch for a trumpet player named Christian Scott. He played with McCoy and sounded great. Melodic, avoids "too many notes", great sound. If I was going to compare him to anyone, it might be Lee Morgan.

His solo stuff sounds pretty interesting from what I've heard on his web site.

I saw the BSO with my girlfriend tonight...it was sick! I'm not typically a classical music fan, but this was quite impressive.  They played Don Juan and Till Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks by Strauss in the first half, which produced a somewhat mesmerizing effect.  After the intermission they played Pictures at an Exhibition by Mussorgsky, which was the highlight for me.  I had hear the Emerson, Lake, and Palmer versions, but to see the entire thing with the orchestra was sick!

Needless to say the place was filled with smoke....  :-P  Although I wouldn't be surprised if the guy next to me smoked the herb...he had some carrrazy ass hair

Saw Sharon Jones and the DapKings twice last week. Thursday in DC and Friday in Charlottesville.

Thursday was good cause it was my hometown and sold out. But it seemed that the crowd lacked a little bit of energy.

Friday in Charlottesville was the titties. Small venue. The majority of the crowd was older couples, 40+ literally. And they were rocking out. The band sounded great, sharon was having fun on stage, and thecrowd was eating it all up. Great night. We bought the screenprinted poster of the show and got the entire band to sign it.

Good times.

cornmeal opened for moe.? when did they get quasi-popular? I have been hearing more about them lately. I remember seeing them for free in high school and haven't seen them since.

I hope the show was good but for me, you couldn't but together a bill that would put me to sleep more. wow.

Post by: phg on January 28, 2008, 11:42:56 AM
Yeah I should've gone with my friends to moe. last night in Minneapolis, but I was too wiped out from Saturday night/Sunday morning.  Oh well.

I've never been too impressed with them live, but I've only seen portions of shows at festivals.

Cornmeal is pretty damn good if you like bluegrass.  And I have a crush on that fiddle player.
Title: Re: Last Show Attended?
Post by: CRAZYED on January 28, 2008, 12:27:18 PM
Well believer it or not, this show wasnt the first time Cornmeal opened for moe.  I saw them open for moe in Madison at the Orpheum Theater in 2002 as well.  I know that the bands have also probably gotten to know each other quite well with Summercamp happening every year in IL and thats where they are from.  They also have some management overlap.

I was pretty much floored when i saw so many people out before moe. checking them out and totally jamming out.  The venue was PACKED 1.5 hrs before moe was set to take the stage when cornmeal came on.  The band seemed to play their brains out and everyone really seemed to be enjoying it.  moe. rocked it as usual.

The venue was PACKED 1.5 hrs before moe was set to take the stage when cornmeal came on.

Wow.

From what I understand moe did not sell out chicago (and they are playing a MUCH smaller venue then a year ago, moved from the aragon (3500) to the riv (prob around 2500)). I believe the riv is comparable in size to the eagles ballroom (where i assume they played of the 3+ stages).
Title: Re: Last Show Attended?
Post by: CRAZYED on January 28, 2008, 04:24:42 PM
I dunno i talked to a friend who said the Riv was jam packed - he had to go up to the balcony and basically almost got in a brawl trying to find some seats, it was either that or listen to the show from the lobby.

The show saturday night in milwaukee was on the first floor rave "ballroom" - not the upstairs eagles and not the basement.   They did vouchers though so that always helps.  $20 gets you a ticket and 2 drinks.  Next time i would suspect they'd be in the Eagles.

Post by: Caravan2001 on January 29, 2008, 09:12:10 PM
Saw Phil and Friends at the Crystal Ballroom last night.  I thought it was an excellent show (setlist below).  It was probably the best PAF show I have seen besides the Trey,Page, Kimock, Warfield shows in '99.  I saw plenty of GD shows and have never been a huge fan of the post-GD bands.  I think someone who never saw the GD would have a different perspective.  But still, this is one of the best incarnations of the Phil band I have seen, and worth checking out for sure.  last time I saw him it was at Jazz fest '02 and I have probably seen @ 10 shows total.  I have seen the band with Herring, Warren and Derek Trucks- I think this lineup is the best (except for the aforementioned Trey lineup).  Jackie Greene kicks ass and so does Larry Marshall.  John Molo has gotten better since I first saw him 9 years ago, even better than 5 years, which is makes a difference.  Anyway, the Viola Lee->Cryptical->Other One opener was bad ass.  Phil was shredding the whole other one, I cannot believe he is 68!  People were going nuts and I think these two songs were easily 35 minutes +.  The Cold Rain and Snow to end the first set was killer too, especially given the weather we are having.  The second set was great too, with an excellent Althea.  The Terrapin is very interesting and I would like to hear it on tape again.  They play it as a straight ahead rock song, probably 3 times faster than a GD version.  They bent the Wheel around into some new territory that worked really well.  It's kind of crazy, because a lot of the jams sound way more like Phish than they do GD, which might be why I liked it so much.  The Franklin's encore had me doing the 'I'm a puddle of water with no bones' dance, and that is always fun.  This is worth checking out when it comes up for d/l'ing, if only to hear the wacky ass disco Terrapin...

Title: Re: Last Show Attended?
Post by: Caravan2001 on January 29, 2008, 09:32:11 PM
yeah, it's probably the standard arrangement for this band...it just took me by surprise, especially the way they slid into it, and it is so different.  People were rocking out to it though....

Post by: tehdead on January 29, 2008, 10:06:34 PM
O I can imagine, In Syracuse the roof was going to blow off because it was the last song before the encore and it was soooo load. Then for the encore they played Brokedown Palace and the place was so quiet you could hear a pin drop. Great show!

I saw the Zen Tricksters last night in Bend, Oregon.  It was dope.  I'd never seen them before so I was skeptical about paying 15 bucks, but I enjoyed it quite a bit.

The price may have shot up because I heard the band had trouble getting over the mountain pass from Eugene with all this damn snow out here.

anyway they closed the first set with Fire on the Mountain-->Music Never Stopped.  This was the best Music Never Stopped I'll probably ever see live.  I know that's kinda sad but oh well.   :banana: :syf:    The guy playing "Jerry" was shredding nicely.

they also played China cat-->Rider, Jack-a-Roe, Let it Grow in the second set, mixed in with some originals that weren't half bad at all.  And I called the One More Saturday Night encore.  Amazing call right??   :roll:  haha

so yeah it was good...probably the best show I've seen so far this year.

I used to see the Tricksters back in the day....does Rob Barracco play with them still?  Phg, do you live in Bend?  I'm planning to drive out to Bachelor in the next few weeks, plus Deschutes Brewery is one of my clients, so I have to get out there every few months....

to be honest I don't know who Rod Baraco even is....I've heard his name but that's about it.  Maybe it was him.   :|

Pretty sure Rob B. is full-time with DSO now.

I have a buddy who was big on the Tricksters more than a decade ago and, back then he was a taper and played me some seriously sick stuff of theirs. Total face melt Other One comes to mind.

I'm gonna have to get a hold of more DATs from him...

/me wanders off to email some people
Title: Re: Last Show Attended?
Post by: phg on February 05, 2008, 11:25:10 AM
Is Rod B a key player?  Because this version of the Tricksters didn't even have anybody on keys.  Just drums, bass, rhythm guitar and Jerry.

Still I enjoyed them just as much if not more than the couple DSO shows I've seen.  I liked the way they pulled off the Dead songs better, even though I can't really explain it much better than that.  I wouldn't really be interested in hearing discs from a DSO show, but I'm pretty sure I would with the Tricksters.  That says something I guess.

The couple segues they did were super tight too I thought, especially Fire on the Mountain->Music.  They also jammed out China Cat to the point where I thought they weren't even going to play I know You Rider, which I was impressed by.

Well, the Greyboys tore it up in Oxford the other night.  I didn't know any of the tunes by name, but a couple from their newest cd.  The crowd was maybe 300 peoples, so there was a nice turnout, and $18 tix, can't beat it.  I had a tix for Yonder last night, but everything at work is rolling at full clip, with my new oprotunity(sp?) there is too much potential for me to play too much now.  All work and no play for 2 years makes benji a rich boy.

Snuck into moe last night. Lots of energy and lots of dancing but my god were the jams boring. It was basically lets see how fast the guitar player can play while the rest of the band does the same thing for 15 minutes. I still got my dance on though.

couldn't have said it better myself about the cleveland show.
all in all i had a great time.

cornmeal, the opener, def. impressed me.

The Magnetic Fields.

not bad, i guess. as you'd expect, they played a whole lot of sad/funny little ditties.

problem was stephen merritt appeared to just hate being there. he barely said a word except to say things to the chatty female piano player like 'don't ever talk to the audience.' he didn't like it when people applauded, would put his fingers in his ears, and was generally just kind of a dick.

Maceo Parker at the Fillmore.

Hell yeah. I loved Maceo Parker the last time I saw him, and I loved his collaborations with MMW.

The last show I saw was Hot Buttered Rum String Band & The Waybacks.  They both played 1 set, and both came out and jammed with each other.  Pretty good stuff, HBRSB played a nice Ginseng Sullivan and The Waybacks ripped through some Dead and did a nice St. Stephen (with William Tell segment). 

The last one I saw before that was 2 nights of Porter, Batiste, Stoltz at the Mangy Moose in Jackson, WY.  GREAT FUNK!  I am a huge Geroge Porter fan, the man still destroys the bass, especially for a 60yr old man.

Gogol Bordello.
crazy fun time.
i don't know any of their songs, but it doesn't matter at all.
just a lot of insane, electrified gypsy punk.
saw them once like four years ago in a little bar.
they've gotten a lot more popular since then, this show was at the warfield.
check 'em out!

RAQ last night. It was the last show of the tour and man they played like it. They all got a little tipsy and it was comical. Best raq show ive seen, they played a two hour first set and like a two second set. 9:30-1:30

The duo was great as always.  Grace Potter, wow she can rock.  I will also give her an A+ for her choice in the tshirt she wore at the show.

Explosions in The Sky.

never heard them before. went with a girl who had an extra ticket, always a reason to see a show.

umm, i guess they were okay at times. they seemed pretty good at playing loud, droning noise. a few songs worked well. unfortunately, that's all they were good at, so it was like hearing the same simplistic drone song over and over again. don't think i'll ever be seeing them again.

Hit up two Ratdog shows last week

3/26/2008 House of Blues, Cleveland, OH
I: Jam > Cassidy > Dark Star, Weather Report Suite Prelude/Part 1 > Let It Grow, Lazy River Road, Greatest Story Ever Told, Women are Smarter
II: Peggy-O@, The Winners@, When I Paint My Masterpiece@, Tuesday Blues > Silvio > Tequila > Silvio > Tequila > Silvio > Scarlet Begonias > Stuff > Knockin on Heaven's Door > Dark Star* > Cassidy (reprise)
E: GDTRFB*
*-with Dave McNabb (Guitar); "Stuff" featured Jeff on drums and Jay on keys

Finally got to see a Weather Report> Let it grow, probably the highlight of the show. First set was definitaly better than the second.
then....

3/29/2008 Landmark Theatre, Syracuse, NY
I: Jam > Bertha > Bury Me Standing > West L.A. Fadeaway, Lucky Enough, Tennessee Jed > Wrong Way Feelin', All Along the Watchtower > Big Railroad Blues
II: Been All Around This World@5, El Paso@4, Black-Throated Wind@, Jus' Like Mama Said > Lady with a Fan > Terrapin > Stuff > Dear Prudence > One More Saturday Night
E: At a Siding > Terrapin Flyer
"Sugar Mag" tease before "Saturday Night"; Stuff - Jeff/Jay/MK/Robin/Kenny > Jay > Kenny/Jeff/Jay/MK > Kenny/Jeff/Jay/MK/Robin > all

Thought the Syracuse show was a better show, went there with no tickets and got 4 so it worked out nice. Black Throated Wind was a treat. The Jus Like Mama Said > Lady with a Fan > Terrapin > Stuff > Dear > One more was outstanding.

Saw Jackie Greene on Sunday.  He was pretty killer.  Very talented dude.  Saw him with PLF in January and decided to go see his own band.  Go see him if you can, they're a great band.  Tim Bluhm (Mother Hips) opened up and he was good too.  Jackie Greene kicks ass IMO....big crowd too, nearly sold out, I'd say around 450 people there....

Got to go see EOTO last night for free, probably like 120 people tops. It was cool to see Mike Travis having fun, also cool to see how he does it all, tons of looping and technology was out of this world. It was sad crowd though, they kept trying to get the crowd into it but it just wasn't happening.

Likely very right about that. I love the first track on that cd though. In fact I just listened to the whole cd this morning on my way to work.

4/23 - LA Riots @ smartbar chicago
Saw them open up for MSTRKRFT before and thought they might have been better. This time it was a free show and I it was rather enjoyable although I couldn't stay until 4am on a wed night.

4/17 - Hot Chip @ The Vic Theatre Chicago > DJ set aftershow @ Smartbar
What a night! Personal highlight was shake a fist and boy from school opener. Crap kraft dinner was also a treat, I was waiting to belt out "all my friends are here" with my arm around my brother and best friend, both of whom came in from out of towm. I was the geek writing down the setlist and singing as loud as I could to EVERY song, and absolutely loving it. One of the best shows I have seen in a while until possibly that sunday....

4/20 Kraftwerk @ Eagles ballroom Milwaukee
WOW. I knew what to expect from the minimum maximum DVD but the show exceeded all of my expectations. My friend and I were some of the only people getting down (the crowd was very old and diverse, to say the least) but I'd like to think we made up for most of them. The night started interestingly enough as we we got stuck in Cubs post game traffic and construction resulting in us arriving only a half hour before the show. Furthermore, the lack of holiday accesories necesitated we find a bar, and stat. Couple jameson shots later we ask for the bartender to make a car bomb and she doesn't know how! She ends up pouring a near full glass of guiness and pours in whole shots of both jameson and baileys. We look at eachother, eyebrows raised, and egg her on further. The gloriousness that was that shot faded as she turns around and says, "those 2 shots will be 26 dollars"!. After that 6 dollar MGDS never seemed so reasonable at the show. But I digress...Man machine opener got things started right but made me worry that the show would be exaclty like the DVD. Although similar, the order and song selection quickly differed from the DVD. Tour De France was likely the peak of the place 'poppin off' as they played both parts together instead of dividing them up like in the DVD. Other personal highlights included computerliebe, vitamins, radioactive, and aerodynamik. Ya, the robots came out before the encore and the neon grid suits made an appearance for the encore. All in all a fantastic show. God only knows why they played milwaukee, minn, and denver b4 coachella but the people who did see them likely caught their last US tour ever! One of the founding members was conspicuously absent (right at the start I asked, who's that young guy on the right?), if you want to reference him he is the ma n on the far right in the DVD. Honestly as long as the main man on the left was there it will still be magnificient but his replacement did an admirable job. I certainly didn't feel a drop off in energy.

All in all an incredible weekend. Kraftwerk and hot chip were two of my personal favorite shows I have seen EVER!. Bold, I know, but after phish and daft punk, kraftwerk may be right up there. Anyways, I have work to do.

Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks at the Fillmore
a good show. i don't really know his music, but i heard this album beforehand. some good extended guitar jams and nice songs. not even close to a sold out show, but the band provided a lot of energy.

Minus The Bear at Bimbo's
show ended up a lot like their albums. they've got a great, unique sound i like, but all their songs sound almost identical. and there's not much in the way of memorable melodies with the vocals getting kind of lost in the music, so it's hard to recall any specific song. show was maybe 75 minutes plus encore, and for once i was actually glad it was that short. kind of strange-- i like their sound a lot, but don't need to hear too much of it.

and last night...

Akron/Family at the very small Rickshaw Stop
fucking awesome! what a great show. see this band at all costs. two sets. second set was one uninterrupted jam of i don't know how many songs, but it culminated with an insane version of Ed Is A Portal that set the entire venue on fire before blowing it to pieces.

as they came out for the encore, the entire audience started chanting 'there's so many colors' like they were singing the opening of that song, so the band sang along for awhile, threw in some percussion, then went into the song they wanted to play, a rocking number that eventually segued into the very peaceful Crickets. i thought they'd go into a final rocking song, but crickets just got more quiet with the final soft vocal refrain of some 'oohs', which the singer encouraged the audience to join in on, which they did. the band stopped playing one by one, left the stage, and stood there next to it as the audience just kept on singing. since the singing wasn't going to stop, the band picked up some percussion and sang too and it just went on and on for a good ten minutes or more. finally we all stopped singing at exactly the same moment, and it was over.

MGMT 4/22/08 Doug Fir Lounge

I'm pretty sure that my wife would have divorced me if I had suggested we stay for the encore, but next time I doubt these guys will be playing a 300 capacity club. 

Likely very right about that. I love the first track on that cd though. In fact I just listened to the whole cd this morning on my way to work.

4/23 - LA Riots @ smartbar chicago
Saw them open up for MSTRKRFT before and thought they might have been better. This time it was a free show and I it was rather enjoyable although I couldn't stay until 4am on a wed night.

4/17 - Hot Chip @ The Vic Theatre Chicago > DJ set aftershow @ Smartbar
What a night! Personal highlight was shake a fist and boy from school opener. Crap kraft dinner was also a treat, I was waiting to belt out "all my friends are here" with my arm around my brother and best friend, both of whom came in from out of towm. I was the geek writing down the setlist and singing as loud as I could to EVERY song, and absolutely loving it. One of the best shows I have seen in a while until possibly that sunday....

4/20 Kraftwerk @ Eagles ballroom Milwaukee
WOW. I knew what to expect from the minimum maximum DVD but the show exceeded all of my expectations. My friend and I were some of the only people getting down (the crowd was very old and diverse, to say the least) but I'd like to think we made up for most of them. The night started interestingly enough as we we got stuck in Cubs post game traffic and construction resulting in us arriving only a half hour before the show. Furthermore, the lack of holiday accesories necesitated we find a bar, and stat. Couple jameson shots later we ask for the bartender to make a car bomb and she doesn't know how! She ends up pouring a near full glass of guiness and pours in whole shots of both jameson and baileys. We look at eachother, eyebrows raised, and egg her on further. The gloriousness that was that shot faded as she turns around and says, "those 2 shots will be 26 dollars"!. After that 6 dollar MGDS never seemed so reasonable at the show. But I digress...Man machine opener got things started right but made me worry that the show would be exaclty like the DVD. Although similar, the order and song selection quickly differed from the DVD. Tour De France was likely the peak of the place 'poppin off' as they played both parts together instead of dividing them up like in the DVD. Other personal highlights included computerliebe, vitamins, radioactive, and aerodynamik. Ya, the robots came out before the encore and the neon grid suits made an appearance for the encore. All in all a fantastic show. God only knows why they played milwaukee, minn, and denver b4 coachella but the people who did see them likely caught their last US tour ever! One of the founding members was conspicuously absent (right at the start I asked, who's that young guy on the right?), if you want to reference him he is the ma n on the far right in the DVD. Honestly as long as the main man on the left was there it will still be magnificient but his replacement did an admirable job. I certainly didn't feel a drop off in energy.

All in all an incredible weekend. Kraftwerk and hot chip were two of my personal favorite shows I have seen EVER!. Bold, I know, but after phish and daft punk, kraftwerk may be right up there. Anyways, I have work to do.




No offense to her, but she shouldn't be a bartender if she doesn't know how to make an Irish car bomb.  And then to turn around and charge you 26 bucks a pop for (I am guessing) curdled guiness.  What a rip!  But I'm glad you all had a good time at the show at least.

I was in Greensboro yesterday for a free show in support of Obama.  Superchunk, making one of their performances, played first for about an hour. They did a mix of older and newer songs and sounded great as always.  I think one of my favorite parts was when I looked behind me, and half of Arcade Fire was standing with me watching Superchunk.   But around 3pm, Arcade Fire took the stage and destroyed it. Lots of instrument switching but the intensity never waveried.  This band is amazing live.  I really want to see them again, but in a "show" setting, not outside at 3 in the afternoon.  They played for over an hour and were great.

I went and saw Rodney Carrington last nite.  Awesome!  If you ever get a chance to see him, and enjoy crude humor, go see him.  I laughed my ass off.

And, yes, he did do "Show Them To Me".  Several lovely ladies showed them to him (and the rest of the crowd, too)!

Saw RJD2 on friday. I've seen him before once before and it was just ok, but he had an awesome band with him this time, the drummer was sick. Only complaint: they didn't play long enough, only got 1 set (there was an opening act, which we missed), but a it was a tight set.
Very fun night.

5/5/08 Know Bar/Portland, OR:  Death Charge and Systematic Death, last show before they go back to Japan for forever again.

These were the two best punk shows to happen in Portland in a long time.  Both show were packed and raging.  I've been waiting to see Systematic Death since 1990, and it was worth it.  They fucking killed!!!  So ruling....here are a couple of pics

Saw the Fringe last night...no taping unfortunately because I can't find my mic stand + had no time to prepare.  It was sick! Gullotti is a monnnnnsssstttttteeerrr on the drums! Never heard anyone that good before.  Not to mention George Garzone's amazing sax shredding.  That tone!  I spoke to Gullotti for a moment, as he approached me since I was wearing a phish T.  I told him I listened to his set with them from '96, he told how great of guys they were, and how he wishes they would get back together and call him so he'd have a strong income.  Really laid back guy, very cool.  A+ show.

Phil at the Fillmore in Denver tonight....I just tried posting the setlist but its too hard....there were a few songs I didn't know, including a song which I think was a cover of The Band in the first set.

Cold Rain and Snow was teased at least twice second set and then they encored with it, which was cool.

I don't really know what to say....it kicked ass for sure and I'm pumped for night two tonight.  This was my first Jackie experience....I liked him.  Need to hear more to say more I guess.

I was front row center.

August, please tell me you are going to the Garden Show?

This was HANDS DOWN one of the greatest hip hop shows that I have EVER saw.

I missed Lupe Fiasco, but as I was coming in, *N*E*R*D was playing "Rock Star" and they KILLED IT from beginning to end. 

Rihanna, is HAUTE.  Seriously, she is as bad as you would think she is.

ANDDDD she played the slowed down version of UMBRELLA to start off her full rendition of UMBRELLA which was perfectly placed near the end of her set.

Kanye's show was unlike any other hip hop show that I have ever seen.  I don't know if anyone will relate his show to other operatic theme shows like Pink Floyd playing the "Darkside" tour, but I found his show to be very psychedelic, very very Pink Floyd like...and audible and visibly AMAZING.  He killed it.

See him!

Your ears, eyes, mind and body will thank you for it!

It was so intense it was like seeing Phish again but reincarnated in a down home bluegrass/blues edition.

Saw Phil last night for the first show of the summer. It rained so bad that I thought the show might be canceled. The Levon Helm band who was supposed to open had to cancel due to the storm. But Phil continued! I dont think they were able to use every piece of equipment they wanted to because of the rain (epically Molitz who was limited to only one keyboard, but they still played a hell of a show.

back from P&F...
went in with zero expectations and they blew me away.

But first of all, lemme say I saw virtually no outward Phish presence at all.  Up until setbreak I saw no people wearing any Phish gear...I saw one guy who I thought was wearing a High Geere hat..turned out it was a John Deere hat....But I finally passed a dude during setbreak who dapped me up and we starting shouting about the inevitable return.  He walked past me again about a half hour later and we talked some more and as he was walking away we were hollered about the 5 YEMs. 
That was it.  Other than me, I saw no Phish shirts, no Phish hats, nothing.  Not to say they weren't there, I just didn't see them...not sure what that means or anything, it just struck me....

let's see how close I get these...

I:
Shakedown - waiting in line...they took the stage at like 6:40...up next was a couple Jakie songs I didn't know..
Ball & Chain(?) - waiting for my beer bracelet...
Wheels on Fire(?) - waiting for my beer
jam>Althea - I went apeshit.  I'm telling you I picked this one out before anybody around me.  but nothing could have prepared me for how far they took this one out.. (Althea!)
Candyman
Cosmic Charlie
Loose Lucy - lot of crowd interaction to close the set.

II:
Jam>China Cat
> New Potato Caboose
> Caution - it was here I finally realized that Jackie Green was indeed the man.  He did a call & response with everyone in the band, and he owned this.  Caution was sick.
> Dupree's
> Mountains - this had to have been 20+ minutes.  They went so far out there, brought Mountains back, then left again.  I couldn't believe it.
> Terrapin - no Lady w/a Fan.  There was a couple times when they're playing some sick groove that you know is something but you're no sure what.  Listen to this and you'll see what I mean.  I think they hinted it moments before, but nobody saw this coming.
> Watchtower - again.  this came out of left field, and brought the house down.
> GDTRFB

E:
Box of Rain

as i was walking in the front door glancing at a paper in my hand i look up to see Mr. Scofield himself standing right next to me wanting to get in, i guess i was in his way haha
they played an hour and a half set strictly from his newest album.   :clap:
QFT
Sco with his own trio = great
Sco playing with MMW = Not so great.
 
He wanks it big time with MMW.

STS9 and UM on Friday night.  STS9 isn't really my thing.  Yeah they are talented, but I think I have to be in the right mood to hear these guys or be on copious amounts of drugs, which is not my thing anymore.  Anyways, the UM show was unreal.  It was a straight old school show.  Even threw in a Pumpkins cover.  Good times.

Aesop Rock w/ Rob Sonic @ Emo's Outdoors, immediately preceded by Daniel Francis Doyle @ Emo's Indoors.
Both for free! Both totally incredible...
Aes Rock needs no introduction, but if you can stand hardcore/mathy/noisy music, look into Daniel Francis Doyle. He plays guitar and drums and sings, and plays solo with the help of a Line 6 DL4, and is a genius.
Seriously, I'm not that easy a sell on that kind of thing, but he's totally captivating.

I saw "Strange Design" here in Charlotte two nights ago.

They played 5/23/94...

...and guess what...

it friggin' rocked!

I weaseled my way onto their guest list and found my way into the show.  Based on the snippets that I'd heard on their website, I wasn't ready to be too impressed...I found the snippets that they shared to be rather rudimentary, and kind of slip shod. 

Luckily I was in for a god damned treat.  The first set was shaky at best, but the second set brought the thunder!  Antelope and YEM both were brought to stratospheric heights that far and away surpassed all of my expectations.  Their musicianship and use of tension and release that was typical to shows from 1994 was what I found to be so outstanding.  Seriously, I don't know how they do on other eras of the Phish experience, but for the money their tackling of 1994 was spot on.

I enjoyed seeing these guys way way more than I enjoyed seeing Phix, and I thought that their show (unexpectedly enough) was an apt tribute.  The way I thought about it afterwards was that these guys were not really trying to be Phish (they have a regular gigging band that plays their own originals), but rather they were trying to recreate the Phish experience in tribute for those that saw the original shows, those that never got a chance to see the original shows, and those that were at the shows but were on so many drugs that they couldn't remember them.

I was very impressed, and the drummer and guitarist are both AMAZING.  Seriously, during both the Antelope and the YEM, the guitarist was ON IT LIKE COMET.

I know people here disliked their spam, but if you have an extra 10 bucks, and they come your way, go check them out... you most likely won't be dissapointed (unless you are a douche that hates fun, then you won't be dissapointed that you are dissapointed).

Long story short...Strange Design= a good time.

STS9 and Umphree's last night. Umphree's was okay. They never settled into a nice groove, which was real annoying. And we were surrounded by high school kids ripping the fuck out of shittly rolled blunts, screaming every lyric, and playing air guitar, drums, etc to every solo. Very interesting on a head full of L. STS9 was just pretty much a dance party. Did not really leave me with the impression that art was happening.

Got to checkout  two awesome shows in two days!

First night Buckethead! Awesome to finally get to see him, but someone (other than Guns and Roses needs to get this guy into a band). He played solo for two straight hours no set break. He played some familiar songs (bonnaroo dvd w. claypool, the guitar hero song, foxy lady)

Heres the link with very good sound.
http://www.archive.org/details/bucket2008-07-28.flac16.sbd

second night Mule! Love the art park venue it sorta reminds me of the gorge. First set was a bunch of tunes from his new album, but the second set was a killer and  to thank buffalo out for coming and to end the whole show with a outstanding Little Wing > Soul Shine, pretty much sums it up right there.

So I got home from Mike last night and wrote a rambling--slightly drunken--review of the great time I had last night, then accidentally backed off the page (probably a good thing)

Mike was dropping bombs all night as you would expect.  It's nice when the musician you're going to see makes the beer in your hand vibrate.  Highlight for me was when he got the band acoustic around 1 mic and rocked a couple numbers that way (he said that was a first for them).  It's funny to watch Mike work a room.  They followed that up with Meat, which I shamelessly got down to with the rest of the kids that didn't even know what it was til the lyrics started...definitely got my money's worth out of the show and I highly recommend checking them out!

Hmmmmm.......Hadn't put much thought into it, but I guess if there is going to be a 'paug meetup I'd consider it.  Maybe we can talk RJ into joining as well?  It's kind of a haul for me, especially on a Tuesday night.

My wife is working part-time this month before returning full time and committing the baby to day care.
this means that I have no life outside of home & work until, at least September...

As much as I'd like to see Mike next week, I don't dare bring it up...

it was the same one scott used at rothbury right?

I'm not sure if I got a good look at what he was playing @ Rothbury, but the one he was playing last night was basically red.



did it look like this?

Newport Jazz Fest- what a blast

Highlights:

Marco Benevento Trio w/ special guest Chris Potter - hadn't seen him before, but I loved every minute of it.  They played some cool covers- Friends by Zeppelin, Twin Killers by Deerhoof, and a My Morning Jacket song

Chris Potter's Underground- Really cool group, played a sick version of Radiohead's Morning Bell.  Very jazzy but so well done.  He played the melody and all but during the soloing he hit the "Release Me" melody beautifully, screaming it up an octave from the original melody- it was awesome.

Mark Rapp - Really cool fusion-y band.  Rapp plays the trumpet with the Wah pedal and all, which was pretty neat, and then in a brooding aftermath of one of their songs pulled out a Didgeridoo...Epic- started beat boxing through the didgeridoo until the drummer picked up the tight beat and then they just ripped it into another song.

Lionel Lueke Trio- this guy is truly incredible- he plays a mix of african and jazz styles with some interesting improvising and incredible chemistry between he and the drummer.  He also plays in Herbie's band

Soulive- sick funk, although I only caught the last 15 minutes.

Lowlights:

Herbie Hancock- Disappointing...played his new stuff with imo is boring and crappy, although they did do Chameleon which salvaged it slightly.

Chevy Chase- one of the worst possible hosts...he was a train wreck!  Obviously drunk on stage, making jokes about Sonny Rollins being in the "drunk tank" and Herbie being on heroin, and attempting to kill time by reminiscing about the other performers...but he couldn't remember their names!  "And how bout that singer? Umm...the tall one who played bass....she was good..yep yep.."

Ratdog, Allman Bros 8/16 at Great Woods.

Met up with Redrum and MessingerBird at set break - great talking you guys, nice to finally meet up.
 :beers:
Next time we'll plan it better (my bad - we had a hail storm about 3 or 3:30, left late, forgot my camera, got there as the show started. Barely had time to pick up a couple Magic Hats).

I was expecting Ratdog to be pretty lame, but they were actually pretty good. TMNS, Red Rooster (w Derek), Hard Rain, and Dear Prudence were highlights for me. A valiant attempt at Dark Star. And yes, Bobby wore short shorts.

The Allmans smoked, right from the Statesboro Blues opener until the last notes of Whipping Post.
Trucks is the best guitar player on the planet, imo
no effects, no pick, just his hands, his vintage SG, and a Coricidin bottle. He makes it look so effortless. We were blown away last month at the SSR show, and even more last night.

good times

Saw the John Butler Trio and G.Love and Special Sauce, this past Sunday.  Good times on Pier Six in Baltimore that night.  Met up with 'Lope, too.

Awesome venue, too bad the sound couldn't have been better.  Both bands rocked it.

Blackbird encore with both of them on acoustic.  A nod to the Beatles is always nice.

Saw Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller, and Victor Wooten the other night. It was an excellent concert. The band was a five piece with a drummer, keyboard, and the three bassists. Very interesting line up. Didn't know what to expect but was very satisfied. The highlight of the night was Stanley Clarke taking a ten minute solo on the upright and receiving a standing ovation.

For the most part yeah they were all playing four string electrics. Stanley's tone was the brightest, Vic's in the middle, and Marcus's the deepest. Stanley played I think two tunes on the upright, and Marcus played a saxophone for one tune. Overall though, just a barrage of low frequencies.

I saw something similar a few years ago - Ray Brown, John Clayton, and Christian McBride. The show was released on a CD called Super Bass

it was good, if you're into Skynyrd.
i was (actually suprised and) more into Back Door Slam's set.
but Kid Rock stole the show for sure, and he really diversified.

Last show I saw that wasn't a cover band was YMSB w/ Keller Williams at redrocks in CO. Any show at redrocks is pretty sweet.This is Yonder's hometown venue,so they put on a really tight show. I actually like keller a bit more,he did a bunch of cool covers and played with yonder a bit. It was their last show of the  tour so they both went all out. I'd say it would get 3 out of 5 stars. Really looking for Mike to throw down in Co this weekend.

Garage A Trois.

they seem to have lost charlie hunter and gained benevento. which is cool. though different. a much more intense and crazy live show. apparently they have a new record coming out.

fun show. skerik is a nut. nice covers of Jane's' Summertime Rolls, She's Not There, and an encore of Immigrant Song.


also saw night one of the Outside Lands Festival in golden gate park, my backyard. kind of a giant clusterfuck. lots of people, and tricky to get from stage to another, which really sucked when i learned that three of the headliners-- beck, black keys and manu chao-- were all playing at the same time. bogus.

radiohead played a good set to end it, at least. first time i've had a chance to see them live.
i enjoyed their show a lot.
although twice the sound completely cut out for about 30 seconds. nice job, Outside Lands, you jackasses.

pretty good. the lead singer looks and dances suspiciously like will ferrell. which certainly had me laughing a lot.

but they played for exactly one hour. left the stage. lights up, no encore. LAME.

Allman's with Ratdog at Great Woods on 08/16.  I actually was a tad disappointed with Ratdog.  The setlist was ok but Bob seemed to just go through the motions, songs were slowed right down, maybe I was expecting too much.  Allman's killed it just like I thought they would.  Got to meet RR and his lovely gal, which made the evening even better.
Mike Gordon in Vermont the night before, which was a highlight of the Summer with the lengthy soundcheck and Page showing up for a few tunes.  Mike even brought his wife up for a couple of tunes during the soundcheck.

^^ they are fun to watch...

- beck, black keys and manu chao--

did you catch manu chao?
one of my favorites.... been wanting to see him live for sometimes, now.

i did. he was good. though very different from those first two albums of his, which sound much more home-made and kind of odd and mellow. the live show is much more aggressive. which wasn't bad. but i think i only recognized two songs.

Here's days 2 & 3 of Harley Fest pictures.

I saw Tea Leaf Green twice, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, The Black Crowes and a few minutes of ZZ Top.

Black Crowes were just fantastic.  Kuroda put up some great lighting for them. The show totally rocked.  I was front row taking pictures.  Weather was perfect.  Hard to beat.

Spoon at the Fillmore.

not bad. kind of like their albums in that everything sounds alike to a certain point. but they sound better live. they had a three piece horn section for some of the show that sounded really good.

a couple times they began to take songs out into weird, droning, noisy space, but right when i'd find myself thinking 'this is getting cool' they'd end the song. oh well.

the final encore was a great version of the stones' Rocks Off. when they started it, i was amused looking around at all the blank stares on the indie rock kids' faces. guess they're not big fans of Exile.

You know, the same thing happened at farm aid 2001, especially during Willie.  I could not believe people were streaming out the door at FARM-AID during WILLIE NELSON's set.  I blame the dave fans.

Not really a "show", but went to the open jam session yesterday at Wally's cafe.
Mostly Berklee students - actually one of the profs who had played with Wynton showed up.
Great stuff, these kids can play.

a great way to spend a Saturday or Sunday afternoon in Boston, just for the price of drinks.

Just seen Santana!!! Absolute KILLER!!!! show...   Man it was my first time catching him alone, seen him one time back in the 80's at a jazz fest... but this show met far more than I expected!! He played for about 2 1/2 hours... The drummers at this show alone were worth the cost of the ticket... Karl Perrazza of course we all know is a master of his art!! but Dennis Chambers absolutly had me floored and Raul Rekow was also present on the conga's...WOW!!! Carlos still just tears it up!!! I was very glad I went...

Austin City Limits Music Festival
Sept 27th & 28th
(WARNING: This is going to be a long post - sorry, it was a long and amazing weekend!)

My first time to attend ACL, I guess surprising since I live in Austin. I'd always had my reasons for not attending - I haven't had the money, I'd always previously worked in restaurants which means weekends were hard to take off, September in Austin is scorching hot, etc.

These days I'm mostly working M-F, but I've been a little broke, so the possibility of going to the fest was still not really on my radar. My boss's wife works for one of the major sponsors, so they always get free wristbands. They ended up having an extra, and on Thursday my boss asked me if I'd be interested in going on either Saturday or Sunday, and another friend of theirs would take the wristband the other day. I said sure, and after looking over the schedule decided on Saturday.

So on Friday he left work around noon to get to the fest and I was working on a few things around the brewery and running a few deliveries before the weekend, and about an hour after leaving he called and told me that their friend couldn't make it, so the weekend pass was all mine! I didn't leave work until about 6 on Friday and already had some obligations anyway, so unfortunately I ended up missing David Byrne, Del, Gogol Bordello, Jenny Lewis, Antibalas, Mates of State and some others, but oh well.

Anyway, here's what I did get to see:
SATURDAY
CSS Awesome. Boundless energy, the crowd was hyped, the band was obviously having fun and apparently amazed at the size and intensity of their reception. Lovefoxxx kept screaming things in between songs like "Oh my Fucking GOD it's so HOT here!" and "I cant believe how MOTHERFUCKING HOT it is in Texas!!", and "Yeah Motherfuckers!!!!YEAHHHHH!!!!". Insanely fun, perfect start to the weekend for me.
   Over the next hour there was no one playing that I felt like I had to see an entire set of, so I bounced between Erykah Badu (from what I saw she killed, up until she started sort of rambling about politics for about 10 minutes, at which point I walked away), Black Joe Lewis and the HoneyBears (high-octane, filthy-mouthed soul), and Les Freres Guisse - these guys were great. Three Senegalese brothers, two of them play guitars and the third plays various hand drums and they sing together beautifully. This is where I ended up sort of settling, and I wish I could have finished their set but I had to get over to another stage early to stake out my spot for
Spiritualized
Holy Shit. Hands down, my favorite set of the weekend. I've seen them a few times before, but this was back in the Pure Phase/Ladies and Gentlemen days, so it had been 10 or 12 years, and the memory of how powerful and intense they are live had dulled a little. A few newer songs, and an Amazing Grace opener, but really very heavy on the older tunes (Shine a Light, Walking with Jesus, Lay Back in the Sun, Come Together, Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space...). Even in broad daylight, one of the best live bands I've ever seen.
   So after that, I was kind of walking around in a dazed afterglow, and ended up bouncing around a little. I started with Yonder Mountain String Band - now, I like these guys and was looking forward to seeing them, but they presented me with the first of several strange juxtapositions that would occur over the weekend. This could have been the greatest YMSB show ever, but after seeing Spiritualized, they just didn't stand a chance. I was not feeling it. I ended up wandering over to The Black Keys. Hmm. Pretty energetic, could have been a fun show (a lot of people were pretty thrilled with their set), but still I wasn't feeling it. Moved over to another stage briefly to check out John Fogerty, before heading across the park to claim my spot for
Roky Erickson. Wow. Ok, that was more like it. A seriously scorching, triumphant performance. This was my first time seeing him live, and I noticed a few subtle indications of the mental illness he still works on managing, but when he was playing it was just awe-inspiring.
   By the time Roky was done, the sun had gone down and Robert Plant and Allison Krauss were starting. Wow again. They played for about an hour and a half and were totally captivating. An incredibly eclectic and entertaining set, including a cameo by T-bone Walker and The Battle of Evermore (!).
SUNDAY
Got to the park around 1pm on Sunday, just in time to see The Octopus Project. Always so much fun to see live, these guys are a truly original band, and Yvonne Lambert is a genuine theremin virtuoso. Midway thru their closing song, what looked like a high school band rushed out onto the stage to jam the climax of the song.
After that I headed over to see Gillian Welch, stopping off to check out The Kills along the way. They sounded Ok I guess, not great. I found it pretty annoying that between songs Allison Mosshart wouldn't stop bitching about the heat, and not in a funny way followed by total entertainment like CSS did. Yes it was hot, but not nearly as hot as it gets, and frankly all of us were out there in the heat, so fucking get over it. Gillian Welch's set was great, of course, and featured an Allison Krauss appearance, but as with Spiritualized the day before, I was still buzzing from Octopus Project and had trouble getting into anything else .
  After that was Stars. I really really enjoyed this set. Never exactly transcendent, but a well performed, really fine show. These guys also really seemed to be thrilled to be there, which is pretty endearing in any band.
  Over the next hour there were a few shows going on that I wanted to see. Neko Case was closest to where I was, so I checked her out first. Sounded good, but after 20 minutes or so I headed over to catch Colour Revolt. I'd seen these guys before and enjoyed them a lot, but I felt their dark, moody sound just didnt translate that well to an outdoor venue in the middle of the afternoon, so I headed over to check out Silversun Pickups. I was expecting to really enjoy them a lot too, but they had the same dark thing going on as Colour Revolt, and just seemed a lot more noisy and screechy than on album, so after only about 10 minutes I headed back to Neko Case to finish out her set.
Okkervil River. OK, wow again. They're from Austin so I've heard them here and there for a long time, and thought they were pretty good, but for some reason had never bothered to catch them live. They were great, a lot more rockin than I was expecting. I'm definitely going to try to see them again.
And then it was The Raconteurs...
As soon as Okkervil was over I turned around and headed over to see the Raconteurs, and it was as though 2/3 of the 75,000 people in attendance had the same idea. This was the biggest single crowd I saw around any stage the whole weekend. I kind of fought my way around one side and found a spot I liked well enough and settled in to enjoy the show. Holy fucking shit, they just killed it from the first note. Then, about midway through the show they played Steady As She Goes, and as soon as it was over about half the crowd turned around and took off, probably to go hear Gnarls Barkley play Crazy.   :-D Their loss, because the rest of the set was really hot.
   By the time that was over, it was dark and the dust bowl that Zilker Park had become was taking on a strange, spooky quality. I headed over to the WaMu stage (I saw a bunch of people getting their pictures taken next to the WaMu logo over the weekend - the irony was well appreciated) to check out Galactic w/ Chali 2na. I was pretty worn out and just about ready to call it a night, but this show was totally invigorating. They were supposed to be done 15 minutes after I got over there, but they ended up going over by an hour. Chali 2na was incredible. I've always thought he was one of the most underrated voices in hip hop, and his two appearances during Galactic's set were the definite highlights.
   The festival closers were Foo Fighters, but I just don't care about them enough to bother, and I was pretty spent, so that's when I decided to head off. Overall, it was an incredible set of shows, and I've become a convert. As long as the lineup is this good I'll definitely make a point of attending every year from now on.
If you've made it this far, thanks for listening!

Right.  My first live SR experiences were everything I was hoping for.  Red Rocks is in fact all that.  I've now been both there and the Gorge and I can't choose a favorite--call it a draw.  That show started off real chill and the audience was quiet and attentive.  Once the energy started to pick up though things got a little rowdy which was fine I suppose.  Njosnavelin and Daudalagid were unexpected and huge treats.  But Saeglopur and Popplagid were my personal highlights on the sheer power they pack, the band went nuts on these tunes.  I love all the songs off the new album so much as well (except All Alright, which was my piss break).  Not once did I lament the lack of Amiina or horns, these guys get it done fine all by themselves.  I left RR only missing Glosoli and Svo hljott, confident I would hear them the next night..

The Great Saltair was an interesting contrast in that it's a standing-room only dump of a club (but it is right on the bank of the Great Salt Lake which is amazing).  But once the show started, having all that soaring music bottled into that little venue worked wonders.  They wisely went with a much more rocking setlist and we got E-bow and Svo Hljott, which was played to perfection.  I did get snubbed on Glosoli which was surprising, but they packed both Saeglopur and Poplagid in the encore!!!  What a Fucking Huge way to end my weekend and I left not really comprehending it all.  I'm dying to find recordings of these shows and I'm already looking forward to my next experience.  Do yourself a favor and go see them if you ever get the chance.

Saw Jackson Browne last night here in Portland- really good show.  I know Hicks is not a fan, but I was really impressed.  had second row center seats, so we were about 10 feet from the stage.  Killer venue too.  The guitar player for JB is one of the greatest guitar players I have ever seen, anywhere.  This guy is sick!  He nailed all the David Lindley pedal steel lines too.  So many great sounds out of this guy's rig, i could not believe it, or take my eyes off of his fingers.  just insane.  the rest of the band was top notch too, and Jackson sounded ok too.  A mix of classics and new songs, which were good.  For once I was the youngest person at the show  :lol:

Cake at Pier 6 Pavilion in Baltimore last night.  This show was everything I was hoping for and then some!  If you even remotely like this band, you should go see them.  Other than the dvd I watched at Augs house this spring when I was up there for the Mets game, I had never actually seen them, only listened to their albums.  They played the majority of their "hits" and even some of their older, more obscure tunes from Motorcade.  I felt the setlist was heavy on Prolonging the Magic, but overall, a very nice mix of their catalogue.  They even threw in their versions of War Pigs and I will Survive.  There was a concert "first" for me as well.  The lead singer had one of their roadies bring a tree on stage.  He stopped the show and called on people in the audience to name the tree.  If you got it right, you got to take it home.   :-D  It ended up being a Granny Smith Apple tree, but we were so far in the back of the pavilion because we had snuck under, that there was really no way for us to tell(or get called on).  Oh and the security at Pier 6 was the slackest i'd ever seen it there.  It made for an even more enjoyable night.

just saw Phil and Friends with the Allman Brothers in B'ham tuesday...Phil was really good, with a country vibe to the whole set...Mason's Children and Attics of my Life were the def. highlights for me.  The allmans were alright, but Greg Didn't look all that good, and it seemed warren would just step on Dereks solos...the did rock the house, but i liked Phil better.

Seneca Niagra Falls Casino   
Niagra Falls, NY

Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Welcome to the Machine, Mother, On The Turning Away, Hey you, Sorrow, Breathe, Time, Money, Pigs on the Wing (pt 1)> Dog, Comfortably Numb.

Awesome show again, Their keyboardist Scott Chasolen is sooo good! It was good to see them improv time and money as well as for putting their own twist on the songs. Highlight was the Pigs on the Wing> Dogs for sure. Had goosebumps the whole show.

As for the Casino Venue, first time being there and its a really nice, but small place. You could see from everywhere. But I think they still pump the O2 inside the concert area lol.

I believe it was a one time thing, but I like to think that when musicians put something together like this and it gets a good response, they consider doing it more. I wouldn't be surprised to see them on the festival circuit this summer, but you never know.

As far as I know yonder still does occasionally have drummers (Fishman I think has been most recent).  But i dont think it's very often.  Maybe like 1-2times per tour.  They pretty much keep it a quartet.  I guess yonder is taking next year off, at least thats what i heard at the show last night.  See them while you can, hiatus suxs!

Do you live in Moncton, NB?

Daniel Lanois is an amazing artist and performer.
Yup, I'm from Moncton.  Where are you located?  I assumed most of the people on the forum were from South of the border. 
I had no idea Daniel Lanois jammed out like that so I was pleasantly surprised by his set.  He jammed out every tune he played that night.  Incredible on the guitar, very unique style. 

Just saw Lenny Kravitz last night.  Great show, man, that guy has energy.  Danced all over that stage and def rocked the house.  Played all the old classics - Are ya Gonna Go My Way, Cab Driver, Always on the Run, etc.  Very fun, but we had balcony seats so there wasn't much dancing going on, people behind us didn't wanna stand. :roll: :banana:

Martha Wainwright at the Tivoli, Utrecht, The Netherlands.

It sounded awful, no mid-range at all. Walked out during the third song after the sound guy told me it wasn't getting better than this. By then she had already lost about 10 percent of her audience.

Michel Camillo trio
w Charles Flores on bass, Dafnis Prieto on drums
amazing Latin jazz trio.

We were practically right next to the piano bench - Camillo is just amazing

I agree.  I got to play with Michel Camillo once, and he played me under the table.  Amazing musician!

I was on a tour with a sax quartet and a jazz group in Europe.  We walked into a club, and he was there.  One of the dudes in the quartet knew one of the dudes he was playing with...we got to play.  I only played on one tune.  Very random, and I didn't know what I was getting into until we started.  We played a quartet arrangement of "How Insensitive," (bossa nova style) he took a solo, we were then completely floored and botched the first two measures of the sax soli following him.

Keith Jarret, Gary Peacock, Jack DeJohnette

great trio - Jarret has a unique style but really swings.

also, he's the only piano player I've ever seen who spends half the show standing up at the piano, dancing while he's playing (no - I never saw Jerry Lee in his prime)
and, he HATES cameras

I agree about the woody style.  I've listened to 10-30&31, and he kind of has that rattly-ass berry oakley tone that's treble-y but still blows your pants back

Yes. She was spot on in TMNS as well. I think her name is Theresa <sp?>? I like the way she flits on and off stage and lets the band drive the show, popping up to add a harmony or a verse here and there.

he had like, 3 openers, too... only one i payed attention to was Kidtronik.

he was in awe... he's been doing this for 8 years and said this was the biggest show he's done to date.
he played the Congress Theatre over in Wicker Park... an old, gutted theatre..

Post by: Gumbo72203 on November 16, 2008, 11:43:01 PM
Dark Star Orchestra was at The Palace last night...  and fuck damnin wow.  This show was monumental for a number of reasons.

06-27-84 Merriweather Post Pavilion, Columbia, Md. (Wed)
1: Jack Straw, FOTD, Rooster, Cumberland, Esau, Loser, Let It Grow
2: Help> Slipknot> Franklin's, Estimated> Eyes> Do It In The Road*> Drumz> Morning Dew> Throwing Stones> NFA
E: Brokedown
Filler: NEW POTATO CABOOSE > WILLIAM TELL BRIDGE > THE ELEVEN MOTHERFUCKER > RIPPLE


First off, they fucking just about sold out the Palace.  It was so odd.  I had 5th row, and i kept looking back over the audience just to take it all in.  Very strange to be attending the simultaneous beginning and end of an era.  The new era ushered in also brought with it the requisite.... annoyances.  Not 10 seconds into Jack Straw, someone threw a ton of glow rings from the balcony, thoroughly distracting me and a number of other people.  Everyone then began to try and start a glow war...    I let one land next to my foot, and ignored it.  I'm sorry, but I'm there to listen to the music, not partake in everyone else's.... whatever.  So after about a minute, some guy starts hitting my shoulder "Could you give me that beautiful pretty shining thing lying so lonely on the floor so we can make friends" or some weird shit like that. 

Also, this was a big show because it brought a new-found appreciation for the slow FOTD and Little Red Rooster.  It was certainly an odd thing to see the strobes going during the 'jam' in FOTD....  i mean, they built it up pretty good, and Rob, John, and Rob all got solos (piano, lead, rythm), but it was just so... new, to experience a legit climax during that song. 

The same thing happened during Rooster.  I dont foresee ever getting excited about the song, but they put a really nice jam into it, or...  well... "solo section".  All 3 got a solo again, and I remember Rob got this siiiiiiick groove going with his B3 that I wished to all fuck that they would take and run with...  he turned it into this jumpy, major-key funky awesome that realllllly got me excited, but alas, it was over in 8 bars.  Still, I enjoyed myself during the solos, and they brought it pretty hard.

The rest of the set was enjoyable, I couldn't remember the name to Esau, and I loved Cumberland.  That really threw me off, because I couldn't figure out what era they still did Cumberland in, post Donna.  Loser was really nice, too..  the set flowed very well, even with the typical first set slooooow ballad-y material.  I also gained a new-found admiration for Let It Grow.  I always liked the song, but getting it live makes it a whooole new beast.  You actually 'experience' the song and its structure, and that just gives a whole new dimension to your perception of it as a singular entity.  Everything was well played, and even though it was just about exactly an hour long, it wasn't dissatisfied. 


The 2nd set was really good though.  I boogied the fuck out of that shit.  It was all great.  nothing groundbreaking, but just good fun-time boogey.  I couldn't fucking wait for Franklin's though once Slipknot started to end.  Estimated was actually kinda meh.  I donno...  yeah, it was cool... but it was too slow for me.  I wanted to groove.  Seeing it live brought the chorus out into a new perspective, as well as the middle jam.  The outro jam into Eyes was really not all that astounding, and it was just, i donno...  I wasn't in the mood for Estimated.  Not at all.  When Eyes came, ohhhh yeah thats where it was at.  Great playing, and then they dropped into Why Don't We Do It In The Road which was great.

For the first time, I went outside during Drums > Space.  I was wearing pants, and seriously dancing my ass off, and I was just toooo fucking hot to not go outside.  I could've taken or left Post-Space.  Morning Dew was great to get, but I didn't like it out of Space.  They toyed with The Other One, and i was excited for that, only to get the exact opposite in Morning Dew.  (crazy fast rager vs. slow ballad).

Brokedown was cool, and then they brought the fucking heat in the filler.  After Brokedown they said something about how Healy was manning the sound, and that they were gonna play some music inspired by him.  They brought Lisa out, and I couldn't put my finger on the name of the first song they did, but it was good, and then they busted into the William Tell bridge, and then fucking THE ELEVEN.  Apparently I was the only biiiiiiiiig Deadhead anywehre in my area, because NOBODY was bugging the way I was.  Nobody even seemed to care what was being played other than that they could dance to it, and that it was some sick music. 

Ripple was cool, but i didn't dig on it the way i did The Eleven. 

All around, a great show, and a fun time.  Lots of dancing space in the aisle allll the way to the right, against the wall, and we were right in front of the subs, which was siiiiick. 

What was really weird, though, was how Healy had the sound.  When Rob Eaton would do his little rythm guitar solos during FOTD and Rooster, you could tell that he was panned HARD left.  and ONLY left.  He wasn't in the right speakers whatsoever.  It sounded good, but it was just...  odd.  and unexpected.  I think it would ahve sounded better had it been either louder, or spread to both sides of the spectrum. 



if you haven't gone to see these guys yet, you're very stupid.

MMW at the fillmore.

great show. they were on fire. i see them every year, and it's been years since they seemed this into it.

the flow of the whole show was right on.

encore was a smoking crosstown traffic. the crowd was so pumped up that they came out for a second encore. billy martin said something like 'we're not used to the second encore thing.' and they played a mellow, groovy acoustic jazz number.

Finally got to see these guys again, too bad it was a terrible 5 hr drive in a snow storm, Awesome show, great song choice! Would have loved to hear some more of Peace Blaster, but I did talk to the percussionist sister and blazed her up and told her to tell him that they need to get their asses to Buffalo so that was cool. Highlights were the breathe in (love that song), 4 year puma,crysti insti > what is love? > pinanoir

They were supposed to play one more tune, but some fuckstick (stole this one from Rob from dso) hit Murph right in the face with a glow stick and he just droped his bass and left, was weak bc they were going to play one more.

Saw Ryan Adams this past thursday at the Brixton Academy, London...which was a sweet venue.
I havent seen Ryan Adams since his Gold tour and I have to say I was incredibly impressed.
It was a great show...played some old stuff from heartbreaker and gold, which was the highlight for me but i dug the new stuff too, he also did wonderwall, which the crowd here loved, but it was a great version...better than the ones Ive heard him do before.
All and all, a great show.

Neil Young on Saturday night:
11/29/2008 (Sat) Metro Centre – Halifax, NS
Set 1:  Love and Only Love, Hey Hey My My, Everybody Knows this is Nowhere, Powderfinger, Spirit Road, Cortez the Killer, Cinnamon Girl, Oh Lonesome Me, Mother Earth, The Needle and the Damage Done, Unknown Legend, Heart Of Gold, Old Man, Get Back to the Country, Just Singing a Song, Sea Change, When Worlds Collide, Cowgirl in the Sand, Rockin' in the Free World
E:  A Day in the Life

With Wilco opening:
Set 1:  You Are My Face, War On War, Handshake Drugs, California Stars, Jesus Etc, Impossible Germany, Via Chicago, Hate It Here, Walken, Man Who Loves You

Had a full day/evening - went surfing during the day, then pounded back a few, hit the show, then late night casino.  Great times.  The show was great from start to finish although they wouldn't let people take their drinks to their seats so you had a lot of people pounding back beers in the hallway so it kind of defeats the purpose.  The sound was decent for a coliseum, Wilco was great, I got to my seat during Handshake Drugs, but caught the 1st 2 tunes while finishing my beer.  I hadn't heard 'I Hate it Here' and loved it. 
Neil was a force of nature.  How does this guy at 63 still rock the house like that?  This was my 2nd time seeing him and he did not disappoint.  The Cortez had me speechless and was worth the $100 ticket price alone.  'Needle' through to 'Old Man'  was incredible and I was sitting beside an old fella who had seen him last time in 79.  He had brought his son to the show and it was great chatting him up asking for a comparison to his last experience.  He encored with with 'a Day in the Life' and I was pumped since this was my fav John Lennon tune (got to see McCartney do it this Summer as well).  He can still pull off some pretty decent guitar work for an old fella and if anyone has a chance to catch a show from this tour, I would definitely recommend it.  Who knows how much longer he can keep it up.

heh.
I'm just listening to last night's stuff right now. Both bands have someone that I know playing in them. Overall the night was pretty fun. The opening band was a trio that played mostly original rock tunes although they closed their set with a Police-style, reggae-ish song and they played a couple covers (notably Cypress Hill's "Hits From The Bong"  :mrgreen: )

The headliner was cool too, but I prefer the opener.

the opening band was pretty interesting... huge band... violinist (she, btw was SMOKIN' hot), 3 guitarists, another on pedal steel, a bassist, drummer, and vocalist...
cramped stage, but they maneuvered well... lots of covers with a few originals tucked in...

the duo was having a great time... i can't say that Marco stopped smiling ever...

Had the chance to see them in Chicago in 2006 as a Lollapalooza late-night set.  Brendan Bayliss was on guitar as their regular guitarist was not available.  If anyone is on the fence about a Bustle show you should pull the trigger.  I've got a SBD of the 2006 show somewhere.  If I don't post it soon PM me and remind me.  It's pretty nice.

you swayed me. it was so good.... marco was loving life on that stage... i'd gladly go see him with just about anyone..
let me know about the other ones!!!

Hope your show surfaces soon, but this one is pretty money also if anyone's interested in hearing the Duo + other great musicians doing Zep tunes. 

there were two tapers, so i'm sure it'll pop up...

the abbey was a blast to see them...
i've seen youtube footage from your show...
that chick rockin' out with them is badass...

I was blown away.  I thought being able to see Mike Keneally was a treat,  but PG's School of Rock is obviously bringing up some talented musicians.  I thought her voice was also pretty phenomenal for being 16 years old.

I caught the Dirty Dozen Brass Band this past weekend.  Twas a kick ass show.  I haven't found a setlist as of yet, as I was kind of drunk and didn't bother to write it down myself.

Bustle in your Hedgerow @ the Abbey Pub, in the north-side of Chicago...

what a fun night!
the opening band was pretty interesting... huge band... violinist (she, btw was SMOKIN' hot), 3 guitarists, another on pedal steel, a bassist, drummer, and vocalist...
cramped stage, but they maneuvered well... lots of covers with a few originals tucked in...

the duo was having a great time... i can't say that Marco stopped smiling ever...
those guys really seem to love what they're doing... they do it VERY well.

awesome. glad you decided to see them. such a fun show.

Derek Trucks Band
6Feb.08
PortCity
Portland, ME.

sick show as usual per Trucks, many highlights, consistent playing throughout.  My personal favorites were a song that I thought was going to be Sahib Teri Bandi but segued into a new song and, an extended, ripping My Favorite Things.  Nice club atmosphere w/ around 650 peeps.  Bob Marley encore as it was his birthday.

Well a friend of mine is in a band and I saw them at bar last December. Does that count?

If not, I think it would be Buckethead last October at Headliners here in Columbia, S.C.

there was a 'dinner break' between halves, and the audience was definitely thinned out when i came back for the second half.

this was Glass' big deal composition in the mid '70s, back when his stuff was serious minimalism. so yes. it was at moments a bit patience trying... but overall, really great. and the net effect of listening to that much at once is a kind of weird trance.

Caught Thievery Corp @ Rams Head Live, last night.  Big fun, for me and my girl. :-D

90 minutes.  They didn't stray too far from a "greatest hits" set, but since I hadn't seen them, it was cool with me.

Line-up was:  2 DJ's, bass, guitar/sitar/percussion man, 2 local horns (trumpet and sax from All Mighty Senators), a myriad of hot, latin, chick-singers, and 3 Rasta-men, one in formal dress uniform, the other 2 were replete with safari hats.  It was quite the stage show.

It was a Dance Party.  Local crowd was good, they seemed to be there for the tunes. :-)

Anyone else seen them?

I'd have to agree with you.  I was lucky enough to catch them a few years back (2005?) at our local venue that holds 300 people.  What a treat!  But it was amazing to see what that man can do with a guitar.

sound was very good.

doors opened at 7, we grabbed some tacos and margeritas down the street (La Verdad), walked in about 7:35, found some friends front and center and made our way over.

the place was packed in like the NYC subway in rush hour. the entire main floor was packed, not just by the rail. I was afraid to leave my spot for any reason, so had to be careful about beverages. There were guys on the other side of the rail selling beer and water - passing to the crowd. getting to the bar or the can would have been tough. some people were able to do it an live to tell the story.

the 2nd and 3rd floors have seats, I think the 3rd floor is reserved, premium price.

if you're not claustrophobic, it was fine.

That show seriously SMOKED!  You're so right, it is simply amazing the things that man can do with just his fingers and a guitar.

Weakerthans with the Constantines and 1Hundred Dollars.  Liked $100 and the Weakerthans kicked ass.  Constantines were just meh.  Great time at the show and left me wanting more of a Canadian band (Weakerthans) that for some reason, I've kinda missed out on.

the weakerthans are good times, live...

you make me want to bust them out and onto the ipod for the ride to school tomorrow...

thanks! :)

Very interesting night! So the review: Good playing all night. First set was a little bit slow, until I sent Gumbo a TXT askin "wheres the synth, and the untz". Two seconds later untz untz untz which was two awesome songs played perfect and the songs just flowed into one another. So set 2 starts same way a little slow, but then turned into a dance party  :banana:. I was impressed by what they did.


GUMBO!!!!
I got you a poster, going to send it to you. O and FUNNY STORY, so after im waiting on a friend and I see the band loading up their gear and I walk over to them to shoot the shit and ask them if they are down to burn some real tastys, So George goes "yeah when were done, well blaze". They get done and I get down with the whole band and boy did they enjoy the green. Then I told them Gumbo sent me!! and George says "O Ya Gumbo from the boards, and started to laugh, YOUR FAMOUS EVERYWHERE GUMBO TY bro. Goodnight/

Checked put Crazy Engine last night here in Portland.  The show was great, I was really impressed.  I've seen Kimock 10-15 times, and I think this was the best in a long, long time.  His kid RAGES on the drums, and Melvin Seals kicks some serious ass.  I was honestly blown away.  Linked up with J.Phishman. who besides being a totally cool dude, is the only person I know personally that is going to the Fox- woot!  I also ran into a buddy who might have the last two Red Rocks tickets I need- double woot!


Check out the show when it gets seeded, it raged....

Saw them for the first time last year at Jazzfest, and felt the same way! They run a tight schedule there too, but these guys got a 5 minute standing ovation and they let them come back for an encore. Amazing, this is one of my favorites they do, called flim:

Just got home from seeing the BOSS at the Drum in Austin... It was insanely good. I mean... I've seen Bruce before, but this was better than all of them. Some friends of ours flew in from San Diego (big Boss fans from Jersey, like me) and thought it was the best they had seen... Danielle has seen Bruce 15 times over 20 years and said it was the best she had seen. I mean, it was that good! 

Apparently, she and I were up on the jumbo-tron a bunch of times because of the hard-core  :banana: :banana: :banana: we were doin'!

No prob A&C, it was definitely a fun time and I hope to catch them again sometime.

And Pie-Guy,
Glad to hear the show was good, I'm hoping to catch the Boss in Toronto on March 6th if I can find a decent price on a ticket.  Never seen him before and have wanted to for some time now.  It's funny 'cause a lot of my younger friends ask why I'd wanna see that old fella  :-D, but I grew up with his tunes and would love to see how he pulls it all off live.

That's how I felt the last time I saw them (in the fall).

I still think they have nothing on the Biscuits or Tribe or Particle or Lotus, but I would go see them again for sure.

Lotus and U-melt are bands I have only caught once each, so I am a little intrigued and would give them both another chance, but as far as Bisco and STS9 are concerned, I think I am done. Particle? I'm not even sure I would bother with their rotating guitarist line-up and scattered dates.

I'm going to ask a silly question.  When they (SD or DSO, whoever) perform a setlist from an old show, do they follow the segues exactly?  They don't try and replicate any of the jams from that show, do they?  That seems excessive and just about impossible.
Title: Re: Last Show Attended?

They actually performed Happy Birthday in the same funky way as Phish did at that show and the Fly Like an Eagle that went into Bowie the same way.  The other songs were probably done in a similar way for them from show to show.

Saw John Scofield and the Piety Street Band this Friday. I had a really good time at this show. They played all gospel songs which was very interesting. Scofield had some really good solos and did some really cool stuff with his boomerang too. The opening band, Chris Potter and the Underground, was top notch.

Funny story: Scofield drops his slide mid-solo and it lands at his feet. I don't know if he sees it and I'm thinking if he steps on it he is gonna wipe out and really hurt himself. Luckily, his guitar chord pushes it and it rolls behind his pedal step-up. So after his solo he starts looking around for it and can't find it. He looks up right at me (I'm right in front of him 2nd row) and I point it out to him and he gives me a smile, picks it up and the show goes on.

Saw John McLaughlin and Chick Corea five peace band this afternoon. This was a really good show too. The drummer, Brain Blade, was RIDICULOUS. Watching him was the highlight of the show. I actually enjoyed Kenny Jarrett's and Christian McBride's solos more than Chick's and John's.

Great weekend of music for me. Very cool seeing two of Miles Davis' guitarists back to back like that.

I'm personally loving Darol Anger on fiddle, he sat in all four shows.  Don't know for sure but the way Jeff was talking it sounds like he might be a permanent member - that would be right fine with me.

It was my first time seeing Dave, and I must say, I was impressed, but he's just not as good as  :phish: (but then, who is?).

They did play over 2 and half hours without a set break, and the drummer is a freakin' POWERHOUSE!  I was also impressed by their covers of Burning Down the House and Watchtower(nice as the encore).

Overall....6 or 7 out of 10.  :-D

smoking a cig int the mens room. everyone was doing it, haha. I wish I had a better story then that but I don't. I tried to get back in bc I know someone who works the bar at the venue and a few other means to no avail. It was too bad not bc I missed any music I wanted to see but bc that waitress I know was apparently hooking my pals up the rest of the night. When I walked in she said hi and promptly brought me jameson shots on the house, which would have been like $30 for 3. This is a venue where the cheapest beer is 6 dollars.

Not necessarily jammed in the way we think of, but opening up and getting spacey. see for example, the song knocked up. good example of where they had an opportunity to open it up for awhile.

Saturday Night: Death Cab for Cutie and the New Mastersounds

Sunday: Panorama Jazz Band, Eric Lindell, Neil Young, Soul Rebels Brass Band, Buddy Guy, Neville Brothers

My tank is officially full. I was riding on empty there for awhile. This should last me until Phish this summer. If you have never been to Jazzfest, I would highly suggest going one of these years. The only thing is, once you go, it's hard to imagine ever missing it again. This was my 5th year, and it was the best ever, although I tend to say that after every one! Also, absolutely love the city and people of New Orleans. Easily my favorite city of all the places I have traveled...

as part of the san francisco international film festival, last night they screened the 1925 silent classic The Lost World, featuring lots of stop-motion dinosaurs, with live original music by Dengue Fever. it was awesome. i have no idea if they'll be performing this elsewhere, but i hope they release a recording of the music at some point.

Coldplay @ VA Beach Amphitheater, last night.

I didn't know what to expect, since I am only familiar with the first 2 albums, and had never seen them before, but they put on a great show.

Favorite part had to be when they came out into the lawn, and did a 3 song acoustic set. Jusrt walked right off stage, up through the aisles of the pavillion seats and came into the grass about 20 feet from where we were sitting. Pretty sweet.

Only bad thing was the jets from the base nearby were flying over head all night long, literally every 5-10 minutes a deafening roar would pass overhead, it was so loud, Chris Martin even commented on it. That's when he got everyone to take their cell phones out, and got the audience to do a cell phone wave across the lawn to give the pilots something to look at.

Oh yeah, I forgot, I don't know who the first opener was, cause we were still getting there, but Pete Yorn was the second opener, and that was pretty cool. I hadn't seen him ever, and also, am not familiar with a lot of his stuff, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

I saw coldplay around last september (got free tickets, they aren't my fave) but they did the exact same thing where they went to another smaller stage and I will admit I liked that little tweak in the concert.

Yeah, they actually did that too. There was the main stage area, where most of the show took place. Then there was a side stage thing set up off to the side of the pavillion with a piano, and Chris Martin went over there and did a few songs just at the piano, then headed back to the main stage for more. And that in and of itself was pretty cool, but then when the jumped off the stage and just ran up the pavillion aisles and came into the lawn for the acoustic thing, well, that was when I was really impressed with them trying to connect with their audience.

Post by: Blaise on June 08, 2009, 09:22:20 PM
I have been so wrapped up in phish and other things I forgot to quickly recant my trip to the detroit electronic music festival.

Overall, incredible experience that I don't intend to miss for the forseeable future. Very inexpensive, nothing was too crowded, decent grounds that made all 4 stages accesible, and its in the midwest and close to chicago. Can't stress the cheap part, it is a very affordable weekend.

We arrive saturday morning after a long night friday in chicago at Loco Dice and Heidi (long week in general, caught paco osuna, marco carola, and adma beyer that week). (Quick tangent, single handedly got Loco to start pumping out bangers after losing interest with a shitty crowd. I was rewarded with three beers and a blistering good set) Set up shop at our fantastic hotel room where we could see the festival from our window. That afternoon at the fest we checked out Steve Bug, francois K, Delano Smith, Kate Simko, Ryan Elliot, and Mike Huckaby. Steve Bug's set might have been my favorite but it was a relaxing intro to the fest. We left a tad early to drink some bubbly in the room and then head to an afterparty featuring eric cloutier, anathony parasole, and CASSY. We missed the openers but cassy was fantastic. By this point I was pretty shitfaced. It took us an hour to get back to the hotel and it took us 15 minutes to get there. Plus we all have iphones so ya, we stumbled out.

Saturday as a whole was one of the greatest musical days of my life. Started out with a rooftop party from 11am-4pm where Omar-s played a four hour set that was nothing short of breathtaking. I also gut to chum it up with Kyle Hall, a 17 year old musical prodigy of sorts who will soon enough be on the tip of many peoples tongue. Then we headed over to the fest and caught osunlade, innervisions live (!!! amazing), tiefschwarz, wighomy brothers, dennis ferrer, guy gerber, MK and scotty deep, and loco dice vs luciano. Everything we went to just kept getting better and then as soon as the festival ended at midnight we got on a huge casino riverboat, but without the casino, and partied until 5 in the am. The innervisions crew (henrik schwarz, ame, and dixon) were straight killing it but barely anyone was there. Instead most people were at the loco dice vs luciano continued set and or the carl craig, mk, and stacey pullen stage.

At 5 am, after 18 hours of straight dancing we drove back to chicago, an utter mess, and I went to work...

Great show, the band was having a great time and decided to go a little later than curfew, which was a treat.  A lot better for song selection than the last time I saw them with a decent of tunes off of SYMM.

The night after, we caught Live, which was pretty good as well.

great show. very polished and dreamy.
Houses In Motion, only the 5th song or so, completely destroyed. he had to wait a full five minutes after it ended for the applause to die down.

two encores. brought out the Extra Action Marching Band (a weird san francisco sort-of marching band with leather-clad pom-pom girls, etc) for Road To Nowhere and Burning Down The House.

we were secretly hoping they'd bust out Billie Jean, but it didn't happen.

As I walked by Uncle Eb, I said, And this is why I see Phish shows instead. There was a little too much of this ->  :beerbang: :crazy: :rawk:, and not enough  :-D.  Anyhow, funny story, as I was walking out, this one chick behind me says to her friend, I know we weren't here very long, maybe 2 hours, but that was probably the best show I've ever seen in my entire life!  :-o  :shakehead:

Anyhow, funny story, as I was walking out, this one chick behind me says to her friend, I know we weren't here very long, maybe 2 hours, but that was probably the best show I've ever seen in my entire life!  :-o  :shakehead:


Best show ever????  That girl needs to get out more.  I have seen Custom Blend shows that were much better than that.  I wonder if it was that girl in front of us that puked like 5 times. 

Oh well, it was much better than sitting at home.  Ziggy was very good.  Much better than I remember in years past. 

To be fair, she was pretty young, early 20's. I don't remember any puking chick, but like I said, a little too much of this  :beerbang: :crazy: will do that to you I guess.

Saw DSO tonight here in my town which was nice but... it started early so I missed the first set.
Oh well, it was just DSO.

Local boy, Keller Williams sat in for Hey Pocky Way to open the first set. That was pretty cool

My 1year-old son, Emmet, turns out to be quite a dancer. He was having a great time.

Pre-drums, Emmet tried to steal Keller's kids' beach ball. Keller said he could play with it but Emmet just wanted to make off with the thing.

That's my boy.

Jenny Lewis @ the Alabama Music Box

Great show, miserable experience.  When you are having a concert, in a bar, in the Deep South, in the middle of the hottest summer in years, your air conditioning must work.

But Jenny is just as charming, beautiful, and wonderful live as you would think she would be listening to the record.

It was Providence 1986-04-01 with an added "Hey Pocky Way" at the beginning of set two and a Chine > rider tacked onto the encore.

It was fun.

When my wife took the kids home during Drumz (I knew they wouldn't last through Drumz) My eldest said, "But I wanted to hear them play 'my' song."

I replied, "Sorry honey, if they were gonna play that, it would have been in the first set."

Her song and her name is, of course, Althea.

Billy K got hit with a beer bottle on the 31st

Saw the Avett Brothers last night. This was my first time seeing them, and honestly, I've only listened to their music in the last couple weeks, but damn did they put on a good show. Their vocals are great, the lyrics superb, and I always like seeing musicians enjoying themselves on stage, and these guys you could tell, were having a great time. If you haven't seen them, I would recommend checking them out.

With Rick Rubin behind the knobs on "I, Love And You", they will do nothing short of blowing up this year.

Amazing to think I remember when they couldn't sell out the Evening Muse (seats about 40 coffeehouse, intimate bar style) here in Charlotte.

Crazy shit.

In other show news, I be-bopped in and caught this show from Kyle's Song on last night...
Quote
07/09/09 Neighborhood Theatre, Charlotte, NC
Set I: Timmy Tucker, Another One Gone, Kyle's Song> Head> Bearsong, Raise A Glass
Set II: Deep This Time, She> Rise, Where Does the Time Go?> Dr. Graffenberg> 32 Things> Plane Crash
Encore: Nebraska, Understand


I did not catch the encore because Plane Crash ended at around 1 a.m. and I had a 45 minute bike ride ahead of me and then had to be in at work at 6 a.m. this morning.

Yes, I made it on time.

I just saw Dead Prez in Portland.

Probably the best live act in hip-hop, but not last night.

Good energy, but the sound was truly horrible on stage and in the crowd. The band continued to ask the engineer for assistance and after about 20 min. the crowd realized that the dude wasnt even behind his board. He eventually came back after Dead Prez started trashing him and then the crowd near the booth gave him an earful too.

The best part is he had this really lame shirt on that said "Dont Talk to Me I'm Working".
The engineer then spent the rest of the show flipping off the audience and eventually asked for a security escort out of the venue.

Weak Sauce.

Last night I went and saw Menage last night at The Evening Muse.  It was a gallery crawl night, so there was a lot of street activity, and at least three bands playing for free at street level.

Menage was decent, but not awesome and got kind of a lame crowd...

...still good date music.

Def Leppard and Poison!  Hells yeah!  We ended up with front row tickets which made this enjoyable on a whole different level.  I have to say these guys are trained performers and just know how to put on a show.  Definitely a novelty act, but I had a great time.  I actually got a high five from Brett Michaels.  At first it was cool and then I realized I needed to go an promptly wash my hands.   :-o

After the show I went back towards home (Norfolk) and met up with antelope19 and goodabouthood to see The Michael Clark Band.  These guys can play.  Basically a cover band of all sorts of good funk and rock.  I'm getting ready to check their site out as they would be a great band for a wedding.

I saw my friends' band Giraffe Attack on Saturday night at a local club in Portland, ME.   I hadn't seen them in a while and they have improved a lot.  They play mostly covers but I had a great time nonetheless.  They had the place rockin!  There was some serious eye candy there as well.

Wicker park fest this past weekend, caught future rock and new deal. Only bands of note really.

Then sunday went to a fantastic outdoor party featuring Anja Schneider. Was Ill.

Edit:

Went to one day of the pitchfork music festival as well. I saw Lindstrom, Beirut, Yeesayers, fucked up, black lips, grand duchy and duchess, and a few other bands.

Highlight was def lindstrom and yeesayers (whom I knew nothing about but were pretty impressive).

Didn't know anything about them and besides living in a hipster 'hood, I know nothing about most of these bands. Yeesayer was really good though. I didn't think anything of those other indioe bands like black lips, national, beirut, etc.

Caught Keller here in town at our outdoor weekly-in-the-summer thing. As some of you may know, I live in his hometown and he likes to throwdown when here.

First up is DJ OneDrop. Local dude from the reggae band, The Transmitters. Nice guy. He spun some roots, dub, funk, soul & old school hiphop 45s.

Then out comes KW solo. He played a bunch of great stuff as he is likely to do including a cover of "Althea" (shame my daughter, Althea, decided to go to the fair instead of coming with us last night.) Then out came Jay Starling and Claude Arthur on dobro/lap steel & bass respectively. Both are local and, I've gotta say it, Jay Starling is amazingly talented. Keller once said the same thing to me. If you caught any of the Grunge Grass gigs last fall, it's those guys. They played several tunes including nirvana's "Come As You Are".

Setbreak was more DJ OneDrop.

KW returned and played about 40 minutes solo. he then switched to the bass and played/sang "Women R Smarter". After that, out came Jay Starling and a drummer named Piper (another Fredneck.) With Keller on bass and Jay on lap steel, they gave us some unigue versions of Freeker, Best Feeling and something else that I cannot recall.

I don't have a setlist but, I did tape it...

They are playing small clubs in most towns and are on Sub Pop records.  Kind of cool acoustic/old timey/dirge like boogie tunes.  They were quite enjoyable for a house show, and very inspired.

Do yourself a huge favor and see Chris Thile's new joint "The Punch Brothers" when they come through Austin, P.M.  I saw them on their last tour, and it was some of the sweetest acoustic land tune time jammy neo-classical that I'd seen for twenty bucks.

Plus, Chris Thile hangs out after the show and chit chats/signs autographs.

here's a shot of roughly where I was standing when I first saw Phish in 2000.  I was 18 years old.
I love lakewood.  I can't remember do you live in Atlanta?

Sorry for the late response.  Nope, I live in Mobile, AL.  I catch most of my shows in New Orleans (2.5 hour drive), then Atlanta (5 hour drive).  Though Mobile has been getting much better shows in the past couple of years then at any time in my life.
