  • The Concert Thread

    Maybe we can get this going somewhat like the 'What are you listening to now' thread. Post anything and everything about concerts: Upcoming shows you are attending, shows you did attend, questions about bands/venues. Whatever...

    Next Wednesday and Thursday there is a band coming to the Broadway Oyster Bar which is definitely worth checking out. They are called Bonerama. A 5 piece trombone band with drums and a guitar. Do a lot of rock covers. Their website has some music to check out...

    The following Thursday at the same bar features an up and coming southern rock band from Sikeston called Shady Deal. I've been watching these guys since they were a cover band, and it's been cool to see them grow. With their latest CD which you can listen to at their website (I think), they are really starting to get some national attention.

    And since I won't be making my Tetons trip I am able to go to the Big Summer Classic at camp Zoe. Three days of camping and music. Haven't been to this kind of camping/concerts since Phish so I am really looking forward to it. String Cheese is headlining all 3 nights as it's their last summer of touring before breaking up. Yonder Mountain, The Roots, The Wailers, and The Greyboy Allstars all should be great as well.

    So yeah, you guys have any summer music plans?

    PS - I can't recommend Bonerama enough. Check 'em out!

    Don't touch the String Cheese people. They all have Hep C.

        Going to Day 3 of Pitchfork tomorrow. Malkmus, New Pornographers, De La Soul, Of Montreal (not really into them, but whatever).

        Rock music.

          This should bring a laugh, but I've considered going for the experience...

          Sammy Hagar is playing the Lakewood Theatre down here in October...that's like playing a big bar because the Lakewood holds about 500 people...

          I'm not a huge Sammy fan, but I do like some of his stuff and I think it would be cool to see a big act like him in such a small venue...

            You're being fucking dramatic. You own a TV and an air mattress. That's not exactly what I'd call "a lot to lose."

                Sammy has his biggest non California fan base out of St Louis over the years. Ever since the Montrose days, so it's only fitting if you get to see him down that way.

                    I like him...not obsessively (but there's no musician I like obsessively except maybe George Strait)...

                    I might go see this show...Sammy in a cozy 500 seat venue would be really cool...

                    I think any artist that was decent would be worth seeing in a small venue like that...

                      Lessee....

                      July 25 I'll go check out the summer-touring kind of acoustic version of Marah here in NoVA. Rumors of Finn's Motel making it out to the east coast abound. The Mendoza Line and Dappled Cities Smile will start a solid week at the Black Cat in August that'll also feature Australia's version of Sloan, the wonderful You Am I.

                      Gonna try to catch The Flatlanders reunion tour (Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Joe Ely, and Butch Hancock; these fellas were Uncle Tupelo before there was an Uncle Tupelo) in late August (2 dates, might be worth seeing both)....
                      I like cheese.

                        How does 311 mix up their set lists? A lot of older stuff or what?

                            They play a wide variety of songs at their shows, so yes they play a lot of older stuff, of course you get the songs like "Amber", "All Mixed Up", and "Creatures" that everyone knows at most shows, but they also have a lot of very live friendly songs that you've probably never heard of or didn't pay much attention to when going through their CDs...

                            It's really kind of tough to explain. One show will have a predominantly reggae feel to it, the next show will have a hippy/trippy type of feel to it, and then you may get the rock/rap type of show.

                            If you go to one of their shows with an open mind, I think its pretty tough not to have a great time...no matter what genre of music you may be into.

                              Although I would love to hear the more reggae/trippy concert. I love Beautiful Disaster. One of my favorites of theirs. Have fun...
