Plant's web site has been posting reviews of the current tour daily. They are playing Telluride this year. Emmylou Harris is also on the bill. There is a picture of Emmylou & Robert on his site. My call - she comes out as a guest to sing? Could be epic Not to mention the great line-up for the rest of this fest.
The New Orleans Radiators are callin it quits in a few months....:-( See ya in Park City
Cheers.................................B

Anxious for a review of Plant

Unfortunately they are playing the worst venue in Denver. So I skipped out on buying tickets. Probably not a wise decision. Maybe I can catch them in Telluride this summer. Now that would be awesome.

I see that YMSB is also playing the same said venue :( Bummer. All they and Plant need to do is walk 2 blocks east on Colfax Ave to the Ogden Theatre and I would be there in a flash. Ahh well..

Robert Plant and Band of Joy

Seeing him/them (Patty Griffin on harmony vox, the inestimable Buddy Miller on guitar) Monday in Charlotte, with openers North Mississippi Allstar "duo" (just the Dickenson brothers, apparently doing their best White Stripes imitation...and by all reports that I've run across, quite well). This is a theater show, icing on the cake, in my book. Stay tuned for a report.

Also just nabbed tix for the Avett Brothers, also Charlotte, for April. Grace Potter and the Nocturnals opening, another sweet opening act. Hard to beat the Avetts on their home turf...

Sons of Aunt Monk ~ Honoring the musical legacy of Merl Saunders

Michael Hinton, Larry Vann and Michael Warren, all former members of Merl Saunders’ bands, consider it their obligation to continue his music legacy, to sustain his fans indulgence in his compelling music rhythms, to introduce new fans to his mesmerizing grooves and to continue to disseminate his phenomenal musical works by supporting the Merl Saunders Estate.

The Sons of Aunt Monk will showcase Merl Saunders’ legacy while jammin’ his music at the ART HOUSE GALLERY & CULTURAL CENTER, Berkeley, CA ~ Saturday, February 26, 2011, 7:30p.m. $10 cover

“Merl stepped into all styles of music…he always allowed us the ‘stretch out’, to explore…we’ll bring a lot of love to the music…”

I saw him at the Greek

with Alison Krauss a couple years back, and despite the unlikeliness of the pairing (and the fact that poor Alison was freezing in the Berkeley summer fog) it was incredible. I'd recommend him!

haven't seen him live for quite awhile.
and with 27 orders of that 72 boxset now... j/k

Has anyone checked out Plant's band? I assume they are really good, but I haven't heard a single song from this band. Tix go on sale tomorrow for the Denver show.. tempting very tempting ...
