The best part of a Fallout Boy concert?

No line at the beer concession. NONE. 75% of the attendees are too young to have beer. Silver lining.

FooFighters, Dropkick Murphy, and Royal Blood at Fenway Park last night! Grohl, Hawkins, and company went hard for 3 hours less some amusing high-jinx related to the the leg and the throne. Dave's orthopedist Lou sang 7 Nation Army and Sully Erna from Godsmack covered Alice Cooper's Schools Out. Tayler Hawkins sang Under Pressure. Royal Blood bears watching. The first album is dynamite, let's hope they pull off the follow up.

Simply kicked ass.

Dave's actual orthopedic doctor came on stage and sang? That's fun.

Then I thought about the logistics of getting there, and squeezing it into an overbooked summer. And I remembered how bad they sounded the last time they came through town. So I forgot about it.


Now I see that tickets went on sale over the weekend and sold out in just a couple minutes. Breaking some Ticketmaster record. And scalpers are selling for up to $15K per ticket.

Remember how this 4th of July show was it? The end?

Ha!

Ry Cooder is coming to Seattle in October and Twil and I are going to see him!

Quote:
Skaggs has been playing country and bluegrass since he was a child. He’s garnered over a dozen Grammys to his name in the past 30 years. Ry Cooder is the quintessential ethno-musicologist, exploring, playing, and producing albums about Cuba’s music scene and the Latino scene in Chavez Ravine (now Dodger Stadium), and has released a vast number of albums, both solo and in collaboration with other artists such as Captain Beefheart, Maria Muldaur, and Warren Zevon. Sharon White has spent much of her life playing with gospel/country vocal group the White Family. At the Sheldon show, the band was joined by Sharon’s sister, Cheryl (who sat in on backup vocals), and her father, Buck White (who sat in on piano and vocals). The ensemble was rounded out by Skaggs’ former Kentucky Thunder bassist Mark Fain and Cooder’s son Joachim on drums.
My first exposure to Ry Cooder was hearing his work on the soundtrack to the film Paris, Texas.



I was immediately and permanently hooked. I went on to learn and love more of his work, especially on "Into the Purple Valley" and "Paradise and Lunch" and "Chicken Skin Music", "Bop Til You Drop", etc. (discography here). I can't wait to see and hear him live.

Stevie Wonder is on tour performing the greatest album of all time, Songs in the Key of Life. This fact is not up for debate. I will be going to see said album performed by said artist in St. Louis in October.

Bring. Money.

When he came through Seattle last year, Twil and I were super excited at the prospect of seeing him live. That is, until we learned that the only tickets available to us were $400 and up. I love me some Stevie Wonder, but not as much as I love eating food for the month.

Sabbath is doing their "last" tour and are coming to Kansas City in March. Tix go on sale next week and are reasonably priced. I've never seen Sabbath with Ozzy (saw them with Dio, which was pretty fucking awesome), and though Bill Ward will not be behind the kit, I might buy those tix.

I would have loved to have seen Black Sabbath in their heyday. I saw Dio on the Sacred Heart tour, absolute awesomeness!!!

Saw Ozzy on the Ultimate Sin tour. Metallica opened, w/Cliff Burton on bass, w/broken arm in a bent cast so he could still play. And, boy, did he.
