OK, this isn't set in stone yet, but I may be going to see Yes and Toto in August. I think more people are going for Yes...but I'm a big fan of the Toto. Africa makes me almost cry I love that song so much!

Sweet! And you can share with everyone your knowledge of the bassist recently passing away.

Jane's Addiction

They are playing at the Electric Factory in Philly on Sat the 16th May... but I'm going to the Friday 16th show an hour north in Sayreville NJ. Jinx is taking the kids to the Philly show (their first rock concert) ... and the Friday show is a special presentation of Nothing's Shocking in it's entirety. Also easier for me to get there on time, as I'll be off at 1p on Friday that week.

So, I'm here. What a strange venue. I rode my motorcycle. I may regret this. The sky is cloudy.... This morning, the wunderground forecast said no chance of rain until about 1am. I think I'll be lucky if I come out to a dry bike. I smell moisture in the air.

Whatever. This is Jane's Addiction. And they are doing Nothing's Shocking. In its entirety. Boo. Ya.

Sold out show. Starland Ballroom. Sayreville NJ. Surprisingly rural. And the crowd is Surprisingly.... Mature. I'm just waiting in the parking lot at this point.

This is the second time I've gone to a concert alone.... I went to see Cake in 2010.... Shortly after I got fired as a husband. That was kind of sad and lonely ... Sad and lonely.

But not this time. I'm psyched. I will post clips.

Oh, and I parked for free because I didn't use an actual space. $7 more I can spend on..... Soda. Yay.

Inside now, and it is very similar to Cabo Wabo. It's a lot like a big bar. Maybe 1000 heads. 1500 to the moon.

This is going to be insane. Huge big band, little tiny venue. Someone do the math. There has to be a formula for band fame to venue size ratio.

The smaller the venue, the more intense the experience. Like imagine Led Zeppelin performing in your living room in 1977. That's the Omega.. Vanilla Ice at Woodstock is the alpha.....

So this show should definitely be in the upper 25%, right?
