DJ Shadow

I was fortunate enough to see Shadow when he came to Baltimore a while back (sorry it has taken me so long to post this) and I think this guy is on to something really cool. I didn't see him as being a DJ but rather an artist playing the most complicated digital instrument ever conceived. I had a blast and can't wait to see another show and I really wish I had enough stamina to have seen him after that epic Super Jam @ Bonnaroo in '06 (If memory serves). I had to hear about that show for years from my sons while waiting my chance to take in the experience.

Panic

Ted - I love when they play Cream Puff War! I heard John Bell sing Morning Dew a few years back - damn it sent chills down my spine and a tear or two down my face.

Speaking of Panic - they are getting ready for a 3 night run in the Fox in Oakland. If you live in the Bay area, get your rear to these shows!! Oh and bring ear plugs, they are the loudest band I have ever heard live. And that is saying something =)

And 1 more from the great state of PA, Double Dose of Reading

This was just a FUN FUN show, forgive the video, I couldn't really get my cameras high enough to look over the crowd, so it's mostly a bunch of dancing heads (sic), but the Audio came out nice all things considered...a smoking Bertha!

Local Band: Forgotten Space (in North Texas)

My first time on the Board...My wife and I went out for drinks last Friday night at a local bar in Grapevine Texas called Tolberts. Tolberts features local bands on Friday's and Saturday's. On Friday, a Dead tribute band called Forgotten Space played at Tolberts. The band was absolutely great! It was our first time to see this band and we were impressed.

The lead guitar player, Kenny Withrow, replicated the Jerry Garcia sound down to the riff and note. Kenny Withrow is one of the founding members of Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians. All-in-all, the band played the Dead music very well!

Steve Winwood and Carlos Santana

They're touring together this summer. Saw them Sunday night and both were excellent! Steve has still got it and Carlos, well he's Carlos, enough said! One highlight was when Steve came on stage during Carlos' set and they did Marvin Gaye's "Right On". If they're coming your way I highly recommend them!

Deadicated

The first night was better but only because it was in Denver where the crowd was a lot more respectful. The Boulder show was filled with college kids who didn't know how to shut the F up and listen. I mean these guys play acoustic and they aren't even plugged into amps so excessive talking and laughing and partying kind of ruins the show you know? Like David said "Lost today is the art of listening". Great advice.
