Saw Roger Waters last night, bought last minute tix for $45.
Great band, and still the best rock show performance out there, at 79!
And if you don't like his politics, "piss off to the bar" 
He was fair, called each president since Reagan a war criminal...and he certainly had fun.
I would say the sound was good, but not as good as the last time I saw them 5 years ago. 
Perhaps too many speakers and the in the round setup, rather traditional stage setup at one end.

Which brings it back around to the festival I just got back from... most of the bands were really relaxed and honestly looked like they were enjoying themselves. Nation Of Language! I forgot to mention them, KIDS who raided their goth parents' record collections, did the only cover song of the entire weekend (Pixies) and were having a blast. I feel like I saw a band before they got enormous. All very charming.

Saw Greg Blake last night on the front porch of a friend's house, accompanied by Natalie Padilla on fiddle and her dad Ray on bass. He's a killer bluegrass guitarist and he sings with a voice made for country radio.

Not the sort of thing I'd usually go see but I heard Natalie was playing with him and that sealed the deal. And I had a great time listening to him cover old country classics and picking a few bluegrass tunes.

These are the earplugs, by the way. They're not as wonderful as the advertising copy wants you to believe but they definitely are better than foam. I added the $6 lanyard which is a rubber band but it held up so maybe it's worth it.  


Place like that here that's called The Blue Door. Saw James McMurtry there a few years ago and they got the sound and volume just right.

Went to see Bob a few years ago in Oakland and the openers, who I really wanted to see, were Kings of Leon. But - even when we escaped out in the lobby by the concessions - we couldn't hear ourselves think. It was horrible. But we always have some high Q earplugs I tote to every show.

Flip side: saw Genesis back in the Illegal Alien period and the mix was so clean you could hear it when Phil picked up his tambourine. Beautiful.

And before anyone says "why don't they just lower the volume?" I have to say they've never been to a Lyle Lovett concert where you could have babies in the front row but also have to really strain to hear him, and if anyone around you is a talker, the show's ruined. 

edit: not actually have babies. Go to the hospital or doula, whatever. Lyle does not want that niche.

I use these.  HIGHLY recommend.


We did something weird last weekend and went to back-to-back nights of the same bands.  We saw Amigo the Devil and Murder by Death on Saturday at the Ogden in Denver and on Sunday at The Mishawaka outside Fort Collins.

We've been to shows at the Ogden before and I really enjoy the venue. Saturday's show was loads of fun. Amigo was absolutely unhinged, which made for a neat show. MBD was great. Absurdly loud, though. That was unexpected.

Sunday's show was a different experience altogether. The Mish is unique and beautiful. Much smaller crowd, more intimate, outdoor. For this show, Amigo was quite a bit more subdued, and played the exact same setlist, with mostly the same banter. Great show, though. MBD took the stage and it was immediately apparent that they were on a tear. Completely different setlist, they were having a blast and it was contagious. We left wanting more after a solid 5 hours of music, so it doesn't get better than that.

Debbie and I went to see Best Coast a few years ago... it was so loud we went to another room. And it was still way to loud.
When we went to see Son Volt, it was spot on. Of course, it was mostly acoustic.

I cannot begin to describe how loud this concert was. Way beyond anything I've experienced and I have experienced loud. Luckily, I had invested in some $40 earplugs that are supposed to prevent damage but allow some fidelity. I tried them at a concert a couple of months ago and was disappointed: still muddy. But that show obviously wasn't loud enough. There's a tiny tympanic membrane inside each one that's supposed to transmit a fraction of all frequencies and I think it did a bangup job on these intensely loud sets. Justine had some basic industrial foam plugs and so we moved away from the stage after a few songs so she could take them out without injury.

The phone did a pretty remarkable job of making sense of it, considering.

Audio on this one is much more iphoney but hey: Sparks!
And for the review part: I have never been aware of an opportunity to see Sparks but they've been touring a lot lately and what a great time!

The first set we saw, a duo called "Terror/Cactus" was really really cool and I swear they went into Egyptian Reggae for a minute. Not my video; I only shot a few because I put my phone away most of the time... But the takeaway must-see in a steamy nightclub is the Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio, whose youtubes don't capture the groove of the set or the amazingness of the back-and-forth between Delvon on the Hammond (which now sports one of Justine's "bee" stickers!) and Jimmy James, who also powers the True Loves, another Seattle band. Go see them if you have a chance. Go see Terror/Cactus. Go see Sparks. Modest Mouse if you like them, I thought they were great and fascinating to watch, altho the video I got is fun for me, it seems less anthemic now than it was in person. Ah, concerts!

Their new drummer is amazing, and Keith has not lost a bit of anger or energy.

We bought tickets months ago for a festival
featuring Silversun Pickups and Jimmy Eat World (headlining act was A
Day To Remember) at Fiddler's Green. Drove down to Denver on Friday to
catch the mayhem and it was very entertaining. Silversun Pickups were
rowdier than their recorded output - it was a great set. Jimmy Eat World
are VERY accomplished live. Again, quite different than the recordings
and a very good time. A Day to Remember? Well, apparently it has become
acceptable to have a backing track playing at concerts now. We left
after about half an hour.



HOWEVER



I'd known that there was to be a punk
festival the next day. The headliners were Pennywise and NOFX. We've
seen Pennywise before and it was fun, but the original ads for the show
did not mention any of the opening acts, which included Dwarves,
T.S.O.L., PKEW PKEW PKEW, Bad Cop/Bad Cop, The Suicide Machines, and
Circle Jerks.






So, long story short, I've seen Circle Jerks now. That was INCREDIBLE.

She's played GMF twice now....once with Margo driving in with a van full of players and trailer, last year in a big a** tour bus. Both times as sweet and nice and friendly person as you would hope. I will always be a fan.

Also, I forgot to mention that Stan Lynch was sitting in on drums for The Dirty Knobs. No explanation given, but I thought he'd completely left the biz. Campbell introduced him as a R&R Hall of Fame member, making no mention whatsoever about his status as same.
