Hey now....went to see Dark Star Orchestra at North Tahoe tuesday night..Hats off to them ,boy, they did a very difficult songt "Lazy Lightning" impeccably ..Cosmic Charlie was fantastic also..I enjoyed myself immensely and wanted to let people know
... did a decent concert earlier this year (though, admittedly, I would've preferred to have seen Gilmour.)
The Cure, not so good. No keyboards.
Hoping Neil comes down for his Chrome Dreams II tour.
goose creek- seen 'em twice in the 90's...
if you don't have it- i recommend their "words of earnest" record... classic.
trance jams in a redneck joint...
Deadheads have great taste in music, as I checked out all five pages! John Prine was awesome, I also liked George Thorogood, The Allmans, Rat Dog, Pink Floyd, Black Crowes.
I'll give it a try.
Lollapalooza 1991, Dallas: coming together of generation x. All the high school subcultures of the 80's: hippie, punk, metalhead, hip hop all came together. Jane's Addiction, Siousie and the Banshees, Living Colour, Violent Femmes, Ice T w/Body Count, Butthole Surfers, Henry Rollins Band. Never been to a show as profound.
King Crimson Thrak tour, Houston 1995. Heavy, loud, mindblowing. Made up for awful crowd.
David Gilmour April 2007, Chicago. With Rick Wright. Very Intimate, loved the 30 mintue Echoes.
Roger Waters Sept 2007, NYC. With Nick Mason (which means I saw all of Pink Floyd in 2007). Great sound and visuals.
George Clinton and P-Funk Allstars, Houston 1997. With Bootsy Collins Band. Best show I could've asked for, very heavy, psychedelic set in the beginning, then picked up and got funky.
Prince, Houston 1989. Lovesexy tour. He hadn't been around since Purple Rain. Great way to celebrate my high school graduation.
Pink Floyd, Houston/Dallas 1994. Division Bell tour, even tho I would've preferred them with Waters, they were one of the few bands that could pull off a show in a stadium. quad sound was amazing, amazing lighting effects.
Santana, Houston 1994. Lots of tshirts from the above mentioned show. Was blown away by the jamming, including Miles Davis' Sketches of Spain.
Never been to one of their shows that did not absolutely floor me. Amazing dynamics from teeth-gnashing screamingly sick feedback to beautiful quiet pin-drop whispered ballads. Who else can get the Arkestra to sit in with them??
The Chili Peppers are great live and the Who this last time around gave me serious goosebumps.
Springsteen in the late 70's awesome shows
Jerry Jeff Walker in a small club in Charlotte NC in 83 (great show he just keep playing 2+ hrs without a break)
Jorma with Jack in a small club in Portland ME in 86? ( sat at a table right in front of Jorma)
Marshall Tucker Band when I was at school in Alfred NY ( one of my 1st concerts and still one of the best)
Max Creek at the Mason Jar in Rochester NY in the early 80's
12/29-31/97 - Great American Music Hall, SF: Incredible 3 show run. My friends and I were welcome backstage throughout the run thanks to sound dude Steve Young who we met during the Vinyl show on 12/28. The band I was used to hearing talk and joke throughout shows, including during songs, just put their collective heads down and wailed.
11/6/01 Madison Theater - Peoria, IL: CD release party for Warts and All vol. 1. Do yourself a favor, go to archive.org and stream Waiting For the Punchline right now. I've seen a ton of shows but it was during this song that for the first and only time ever I thought a band might actually tear the roof off a place.
Also, just saw Hank III last saturday. If your musical tastes include both country and all that metal rock theater can offer go see that kid.
