Going to see The Mountain Goats next Tuesday!! It's gonna be so good. I'm also debating seeing Bad Religion with the Dropkick Murpheys next friday as It's my birthday. However tickets are $50 and I'm not sure it's worth that plus the $60 it would cost me to get down there.



I saw the dropkicks 7 or 8 years ago in a small club in Chicago and they were really good live. They played with Oxymoron and the duckey boys. I wouldn't drop 50 bucks on them, but they were a lot of fun live.

Yea I was thinking of doing that. However there would also be the $60 for me to take the there and back the greyhound from here to toronto is expensive. But we'll see. Another friend is going to see the tour a couple days before in a different city so I'll ask him for a review of the show and then see if it's worth it for me to drop that kinda cash.

In Zagreb? I saw them in Prague on the 23rd. It was fantastic I was in the very front, and everything was just perfect. Great setlist too. I liked the Zagreb setlist as well, and I`m a little jealous you got to hear Porch, one of my favorite songs (actually that`s where my screen name comes from).

Yeah, Zagreb setlist was really something. The atmosphere too. I'm really glad I decided to see them despite the very expensive tickets and what I thought was poor newest album (althought that grew on me eventually :D ). I had a laugh reading in today's paper how Eddie Vedder sounded like Pope John Paul II when he spoke Croatian (that's a compliment, seriously!).

Were the tickets expensive? In my experience Pearl Jam tickets are always a lot cheaper than the other major acts out there, it`s something they`ve been fighting a lot to be able to do actually.

By the way: I met a Norwegian at the Prague show, and he`s going to every single show of the European tour!

Yes, the Zagreb tickets were expensive. I have never payed as much for a concert ticket before. I don't even remember any show costing as much among the ones I haven't attended.

Really? What a shame, and very weird as well. I can`t remember exactly what I paid for the Prague tickets, but I think they were quite reasonable.

I went to see Unknown Hinson on Friday at a local bar; it wa smy first time to see this guy after hearing much about him.

http://www.unknownhinson.com/

He is billed as the King of Country Western Troubedours
Image

He has a great schtick going in his appearance and lyrics, but his guitar playing is no laughing matter; the version of Voodoo Chile he play was nothing short of amazing. He wraps his thumb around the neck to play the E string ala Jimi too...it was a nice touch.

From his website:
Quote:
The UNtold Story of Unknown
Looking somewhat like Dracula's nasty little brother who spent some hard years drinking and working as a carnival barker for a second-rate freak show, Unknown Hinson translates that vibe to his style of country and western-tinged psychobilly. Hailing from Charlotte, North Carolina, this red-necked crooner gained regional popularity with a self-produced television show in 1992 and soon was touring nationwide, wowing audiences with his outrageous and campy, white-trash persona and freewheeling, sleazy tone. Hinson’s most recent CD release, “Target Practice”, melds weepy twang and searing guitar riffs and lyrics that speak of love-gone-bad and the dark side of the honky-tonk lifestyle. Raucous, theatrical and over-the-top, Unknown Hinson isn’t just for the trailer park set anymore!

He's toured with Hank3 and Rev. Horton Heat.
Billy Bob Thornton names Unknown as one of his favorite songwriters and a genius picker. Matt Groening (the Simpsons) labels Unknown as a guitar maniac (and funny as hell to boot!) Hank3 has Unknown's face tatooed on his bicep! Marty Stuart introduced him as his illegitimate brother at the Ryman in Nashville, and is placing Unknown on the front cover of his upcoming book of personal photographs. Tom Petty came backstage at a Hollywood event to ask Unknown how he gets his "sound". The Rolling Stones invited him to participate in the soundcheck session for their latest show in Charlotte, NC.

Unknown is also gaining notoriety (and fans) as the voice of lead character "Early Cuyler" in the popular new show from Cartoon Network "The Squidbillies". The first season was so well-received that an immediate green light was given to two more seasons.

What do ventriloquism, hoola hoop contests, target practice, monster sideburns, and hellacious guitar solos have in common? Book Unknown Hinson and find out!


I highly recommend checking out his live act...what a fukking great time!
