    So far this has been the best year for live music for me in a long time. Here's what I saw for free this year. First I saw two of the three Fare Thee Well/ Grateful Dead 50th anniversary shows in Chicago followed by Lockn' festival about a month ago. Even being cut from four days to three it was one hell of a good time. Both were very kind gifts. Lockn' lineup...

    I am going to the Bridge School Benefit Concert this weekend. Sunday’s line up is:

    • Neil Young and Promise of the Real
    • Dixie Chicks
    • Sheryl Crow
    • Ryan Adams
    • St. Vincent
    • Gary Clark, Jr.
    • Spoon
    • Ben Harper

    Should be a good one.

    Yes...I am surprised Young is still touring in ANY capacity. Props to him!!

    I'd love to see him in concert. "A Southern man don't need him around anyhow" but this Hoosier would sure like to see him!!

    Live music is my favorite way to enjoy music. Here are two of my favorite bands. I know, kind of an odd mix.

    That's very difficult as the guitar must first be willing to change.

    Surprised my wife with tickets to a small show featuring Confederate Railroad. I don't really know the band but I knew my wife grew up listening to them. Fun atmosphere and my wife had a good time. I little hard for me as I didn't know the songs. The best moments were when they sang a Dr. Hook song and sang Simple Man as an encore. After the show the band mingled with the crowd and my wife was able to ask them some questions and have a few photos taken.

    The cool thing to me was that the venue was in a 300 seat old school auditorium originally built in 1912 as an Opera House. Neat little theater.

    Oh wow, that sounds like a super cool music venue. Glad you guys had a good time.

    Not too big a fan of huge venues, but the two times in life that I've had the opportunity to see Tool, I took full advantage. The first was 15 or so years ago back home in Alaska. The latest was last summer in Sacramento. Tool continue to put on an amazing show, regardless of the venue, Alaskan venue is known for its horrible accoustics. Sacramento turned the entire floor into a VIP area, so a buddy and I had to jump to 15ft down after lights out to get the full experience.

    I saw Ringworm and Harms Way this past weekend in Toronto. Yes, it's "Harms". Their major label debut is ridiculously heavy. It has more in common with Godflesh than hardcore.

    I'm going to Detroit on Saturday to see American Nightmare and No Warning. After that it's Soulfly. I simply cannot stand anything Max Cavalera has done since he quit Sepultura, but it's Soulfly playing the entire Nailbomb record. I'll dutifully attend the show in hopes Max's son doesn't butcher the songs too much. That kid's an awful drummer.

    Paul Simon is coming to Nashville as part of his farewell tour in June. It's the day before my birthday and I am seriously contemplating spending the extra money on a really good seat, going solo, and letting that be my birthday treat to myself.

    Amanda, do it! Doing nice things and spending money for/on yourself is one of life's greatest joys.

    Also, I've never been to a concert.

    1. Haha! You’re right, it is one of life’s greatest joys. Also, that sounds like such a Constanza thing to say.
    2. Ricky! You should remedy that one day. There is nothing quite like that feeling of live music. Of course, although I’ve been to a lot of concerts, I only go to see my favorite bands/musicians. I can’t do the whole “I like a few of this band’s songs, so I’m gonna go to the show”. But, if it’s something you’re really into, there is nothing that compares to that energy of hearing one of your favorite songs done live. Gah! It’s the best, really.

    Have you never gone because you’re just not interested in shows or have you not gone because no one you’d really like to see live has done a show that would be practical for you to go to?

    There'd only be a few bands/musicians I'd be interested in going to see (I never really caught the live music "bug"), but I couldn't see traveling and paying ticket prices for a mediocre seat. But I also can't see paying $1,000 for a prime Billy Joel ticket either.

    Plus, the people, Amanda. So many people. Loud people. View-obstructing people. Smelly people. Stupid people.

    But what about $1000 for a prime U2 ticket?
    But I get what you're saying. And I agree with the not paying a ridiculous amount of money for a ticket. Honestly, when I hear about really big musicians charging a huge amount of money for their tickets, it makes me dislike them a bit. I get that you might be a huge deal musically, but I think it's a pretty shitty thing to do to your fans who just want to see you perform.

    Plus, the people, Amanda. So many people. Loud people. View-obstructing people. Smelly people. Stupid people.
    Haha. It's true! Man, it's true. But when the music starts, you somehow start to care less about all the people around you. Then, when the concert is over and you're trying to leave, you hate the people all over again, but just a tiny bit less than usual because you're riding that post-live-music-high.
