The Waifs. My second time seeing them and initially wasn't sure, but was soon sold on this very different show. I think it helped that it wasn't an album launch so they could pull out more diverse tunes.

Random thoughts:

It is so nice that they are willing to tour the smaller cities. So many bands just play the capital cities
It was the first stop on the tour so they were feeling fresh. They have been playing together for so long that they almost instinctively cover for each other in rough spots
The sound system and mixing could have been better.
It was loud. Nice to hear them rock out some. Even they commented before the encore and quieted it right down so we went home with a nice satiated feel
Lots of harmonica from Vikki this time
The sisters' sniping at each other was mostly good natured, although they weren't sure it would stay that way through the tour
Vikki is back living in Australia
Donna is single again. Dream on guys
 

Can't say I know The Waifs. Youtubing them right now. Nice sound. Nice voice. 
Edit: Dang. Even had me up and dancing.

What do Judy Collins, Mike Nesmith, Robert Plant, Calexico with Iron & Wine, and Joan Osborne have in common?

Saw them over the weekend at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass in Golden Gate Park. And that's missing out on Steve Earle and a few others due to conflicts.

Collins, 80 years old, told stories about how when this new poet Leonard Cohen came over to her apartment she said, "I don't care if he can write songs! He's so good looking!" And in the middle of her set in the usually noisy and disrespectful festival crowd she sang - a capella - a song about "my husband is not a rapist / he has calloused hands from hard work / we came here for justice and democracy / my daughter is afraid we will have to go back..." and the entire area was dead silent until the standing ovation. A friend of mine, after her set, said he had never in all our years heard any voice so amazing.

Nesmith was clunky and pretty much repeated the tunes from Live at the Palais. Good to see him and Collins since you figure they're near the end of their performing.

I could barely hear Calexico, and my crew had some personal stuff that distracted me

Joan, in the blazing afternoon sun, played a handful of new music, then some older stuff including St Theresa but, during her finish of What if God were One of Us, she sat on a stool abruptly stopped and said "I'm having heat stroke..." and they had to lay her down and take her offstage. Scary, but she was fine.

Plant had a 50 minute set, and did a bunch of Zep songs, In the Mood, and Big Log
. HOLY CRAP. A legend.

Just caught Fleetwood Mac (minus Lindsey) in Auckland. Hometown hero Neil Finn co-fronting the band, which is now basically Stevie Nicks' FM. But, a really good show and Neil got a massive reception and did I Got You and, of course, Don't Dream it's Over. Mick F talked at the introduction of it about how it moved him, and Stevie came in afterward to talk about how it was a song that comes along once in a lifetime and singers forget that after a while but he should never forget it. A fairly moving moment.

Mike Campbell was lead guitar, doing an admirable job including Oh Well, Pts 1 & 2, and then Stevie sang "Free Fallin" for an encore. Nice.

Peter Green was mentioned thrice, including them doing Black Magic Woman and Man of the World. No Bob Welch. And NO Lindsey mention or pictures during montages. And Christine McVie was tolerated but not given the attention she could get since she's been in the band forever. Except she left for years, so she lost her place in line...

Nice. I bet his heart was practically bursting.{#Guitarist}

I saw them in 1977 in the heyday of Rumors and they played and sang flawlessly for an hour and a half. Sounded just like the studio. They were tight to put it mildly.

Seeing that Bill played Ozark Mountain Daredevils reminded me that 45 years ago last weekend, on the 10th, me and 300,000 of my closet friends saw them along with Marshall Tucker, Black Oak Arkansas, PFM, Grinderswitch, Foghat, Emerson, Lake, and Palmer, and the Allman Brothers Band at August Jam at the Charlotte Speedway. As we were in line to pay some good old boys, with bolt cutters, cut the chain link fence from inside and pulled us up the incline and into the venue. I understand it got ugly later with police dogs getting involved when they tried to close that hole in the fence but by then we were already in front of the stage and Marshall Tucker was up next. It was quite a day. Music from 11 am until a little after 2 am.

Jon Anderson 1000 Hands tour. On a last minute whim, I caught Jon and his  8 piece band last Saturday.  Incredible energy from Jon and the band.  Great mix of new solo, old Yes, old solo.   Highly recommend...another "cosmic" experience from Jon.

Saw the David Bromberg Quintet last night and it was awesome. I've always loved Bromberg, and never imagined getting the chance to see him, and in a relatively small venue. We had great seats, first row of the balcony. Nice, older, slightly run down theater. Opening act (The Talbot Brothers) weren't bad (until the harmonica came out) and didn't play long.
 
Bromberg clearly was having fun. He mentioned that they weren't playing the same set list every night. He's still great, though maybe a little slower. He obviously holds his band in high esteem, giving them ample opportunities to shine on their own. He would stand and watch them, grinning and egging them on: "Play it again." "Play it again!" "Play it AGAIN!!"
 
He's still got the same, unique style. I was in heaven.
 

 


We went to see Lyle Lovett & John Hiatt on Thursday. Saw Lovett w/Robert Earl Keen a couple of years ago and the sound guy was horrible, so I was leery of this show... but it was great. Sounded good (except for Lyle's tendency to tell stories without using the microphone) and as ho-hum as Hiatt's records have become for me, I knew he'd be fun to see in person. When I saw his rock shows (during his L.A./heroin years) he would still stop and tell great stories.
 
Bromberg is a great story teller! I was a little disappointed that they didn't play Mr. Bojangles ... the story about how he and Jerry Jeff used to sing that song every night, and then after the show do terrible things to it. 

I saw Hiatt years ago, with Richard Thompson. They were both awesome.

AliGator made an executive decision a while back and bought us tickets to see The Bad Plus here in Lexington. I think I was already passed out by then. I'm glad she got the tickets, and glad we went to see them. They have some music in the RP library.

They get played on KEXP; at least I'm familiar with the name.

Almost all those pics were done in the first couple of songs. Then she started changing clothes a bit - even stripping to sparkly bra/panties in the glass box (dimly lit) and putting on that full length floral dress you see in later pics.

Lots of "Hello Oakland!" which was a little pandering. But still a good show. Neither of us felt like going (rough week) but I reminded her that we'd grudgingly gone to Mary J Blige and totally loved it.

Lorde in Oakland last night. 

A bit rough, and an incredibly spastic dancer - which my wife loved. "She can't dance well. Doesn't have a figure but dresses like she's sexy, her voice isn't perfect, and her songs are a lot about loss and disaffection from what everyone else is doing. She's got a new fan!"
 
Cool.

This guy loved it too.
