Re: What concert did you recently attend?

I saw Tenacious D on Monday at an outdoor venue. It was great, a perfect-weather day turned into a warm, cloudless night, it was great. I went with an old high school friend, we met up with other old high school friends, and ran into yet another. The crowd was basically ages 25, 45, and 65, just these huge gaps and I was really surprised how many young people were there.

We knew the old stuff best, so we had to go forward to listen to the new stuff to prepare. DJ Douggpound was the opener and he was funny.

Last concert I watched was the BTS taped livestream from Seoul at a movie theater last March.
It was great, though I'd rather see them in person. Unfortunately, their concert at Levi's
got cancelled due to the pandemic...

Butcher Babies Friday night in Joliet. I saw them a year ago, and thought they were a little sloppy, possibly due to the long covid break. But they were great at this show and fun to watch as usual.

Lacuna Coil on Friday night. Short tour with Butcher Babies, but happy they toured together and came to Joliet. Unfortunately it was the last day of the tour, and merch was limited to Small, Medium, and XXXL for the tour shirts. They even somehow ran out of the VIP flags and gave us a poster from the merch area in place of it.

Re: What concert did you recently attend?

Saw Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets last night in Providence. The show was originally supposed to be in Jan. 2021, but was postponed for reasons that I can't recall.

Anyway, for anyone who is an early Pink Floyd fan, the show is great. The band is so much fun and it seems like they're all having a blast. I'm really happy for Nick, who just wants to be a drummer and is obviously tired of all the acrimony between his former bandmates. And as someone who has listened to dozens of old PF bootlegs from 67-72, I'd dare say the Saucers are the better band. They really bring out the best in those old songs, many of which showed a glimmer of what Pink Floyd could and would be, but lacked the polish and precision they developed later in their career.

Yikes, I sure am glad we caught when we did then. I did not pick one up but I did buy my daughter the one with this current tour dates. I noticed they were also selling shirts with North American dates from earlier this year, which I would have probably purchased if it had the current tour dates.

Re: What concert did you recently attend?

I saw Mike Campbell and the Dirty Knobs in Port Chester 9/16, another phenomenal show, Mike is getting really good at working the audience and doing the call response thing, his versions of Petty songs are starting to have their own mark, the way he slightly reworked the lyrics to Souther Accents (which he did not play this show) brings a tear to the eye.

Also saw the Cowboy Junkies 9/23, have to say Margo Timmins has not lost a step in the 20 years since I saw her last, her voice is just phenomenal. She has such a kind self-deprecating nature, I could listen to her talk all day long let alone sing.

Porcupine Tree

Sound was really good. Aside from some issues with Wilson's guitar in the first half of the show that had the guitar tech scrambling, the band sounded flawless. Great setlist, about 3 hours long.

I assume since it's a Floyd-related venture that the accompanying visuals are amazing, yes?

Round Two of Taylor Hawkins Tribute shows. While Wembley was a tribute, last night was a party. Much more relaxed attitude from the band, and even more songs than Wembley. (53 songs?)

Don't expect anything on the level of Waters or Gilmour. Some cool lights and background projections is about it. It's a pretty straight forward rock and roll show, which is part of what I loved about it.

Re: What concert did you recently attend?

Saw Robert Cray at Graceland Soundstage on 9/23 and Chuck Leavell (documentary clips, solo piano, and Q&A session) at Germantown Performing Arts Center) last night. Both were awesome. Getting to hear Chuck do a full length solo performance of "Jessica" from 15 feet away was worth the ticket price alone.
