It was an open mic, not a concert, but man it was cool. Place called Square Cat Vinyl in Indianapolis. Original music only once a month; I love it!
P.S. Couldn't fit all of the performers, over 30 different musicians tonight :clap:

Cool. I went to an open mic/open stage event on Sunday, and it was great!

Went to see Daniel Norgren yesterday. I have only seen him on smaller evening concerts, and was a little worried about how his music would seem on a big outdoor stage in broad daylight (well evening Swedish light...). But I was pleasantly surprised by how well his very intimate songs from the last two albums worked in a larger band format. Here's a clip from the concert (not filmed by me):

Saw him a couple times within the last few years....talked to him after the show...and he's a real nice laid back person...can't wait for the next show...

BTW: He's taper friendly I ussually do video and audio at his shows...including SBD

Nice shot, Surf! :clap: Good to see you, Mr Nick... :love: ... and Warren, too.

Pssst... Don't tell Nick, but I've been to Tupelo, and there are no palm trees there. :mrgreen:

That was great! :clap: Thanks, Surf! "It's a Dutch thing." :mrgreen:

Did he invite audience members to join him onstage at the end to sing Push the Sky Away?

I felt differently about this tour than I did the first two times I saw Nick. I expected to be thrilled as usual by his fierce, intense performance style, but I never anticipated being emotionally moved. I was surprised at how many Skeleton Tree songs he performed, especially Distant Sky with the Else Torp video. When he brought audience members up onstage to sing along at the end, it felt emotionally therapeutic not only for Nick, but for his fans who sympathize about the loss of his son.

Mini festival in town caught some pretty excellent acts. Cloud Nothings were fun and loud as always, Lido Pimienta was a colombian quasi-hip hop act with hints of Bjork who completely blew me away. (Definitely give her a listen I think she's gonna be huge.) Ended last night with Patrick Watson who is always tremendous live, a great contemplative set full of subtle beauty.

All in all not a bad week.

So, Mogwai, last Saturday in Brussels...

I'd been looking forward to this concert so very much, I had very high expectations...
Did they meet my expectations?
They did, to a very high extend even...

It was loud, massive, beautiful, impressive...
They take me on a soundtrip I had never experienced before.

They lull you to sleep with the most beautiful, soft music only to wake you up when you least expect it, opening all registers, make your heart skip a few beats, a loud blast of unknown proportions...

One of their last albums was a soundtrack to atomic explosions...
Well, all I can say is that Mogwai is indeed the sonic equivalent of nuclear mayhem...

This was more an experience than a concert...
So very happy I was able to witness this...

Sounds good. I remember Mogwai from back in the nineties (or something). I didn't even know they were still around.

Great concert last night, John Paul White. I kind of missed his old Civil Wars sidekick but he writes such delightfully dark songs & is such an amazing singer, I got over it. He also plays some real cool guitars & plays them well. Tonight, David Grisman & Tommy Emanuel. Really looking forward to this one, Grisman in particular. Although it's possible I'll come home & burn my mandolin & guitar.

So, like Surf already hinted at elsewhere, we went and saw Jason Isbell in Brussels last Friday. Jan, Kathleen, Bart, Marco and myself.
Ran into Bjorn and wife by coincidence. Coincidentally, last time I saw Bjorn was at a gig in Brussels, Neil Young a few years back, also then by coincidence. :)

Anyhow, excellent gig. The man can sing and play!
Loved it. Highlight was Cover Me Up, and a stunning version of White Man. Oh, and Last Of My Kind.
Excellent venue. Only seen good gigs there. Recommend it. AB in Brussels.

My fourth Isbell gig. Won't be the last.
