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.


Tom Waits Amsterdam 2004...


I meant here, Surf.

Saw The Meteors last week.

Left before the end of the show, due to the venue more than the band.

Saw Wayne Hancock last night....great damn drunk time!

If you have not checked him out, I would recommend him highly.

3 fukking hours!

The show started early and Wayne drank (a lot) as the government has recently taken away his right to smoke pot. they need to give this back to him.

Made for a damn fun show, with many funny diatribes (many repeated a few times) showing the unique effect drinkin' has on Wayne...ha.

Over the three hours the already well primed crowd became pretty drunk, we had a guy dancing with a chair until it broke up and Wayne brought he and the chair up on stage to dance, the guitarist sang us "little sister", Wayne forgot and fukked up several songs and nailed several as well. The new shit sounds great. he did thunderstoms and neon, 87 south, rocking chair, why don'tcha leave me alone, etc...a very full night

The show was recorded with two cameras, one mine and one a friend of mine, so hopefully we will have the two camera mix to DVD and up on Dime or somewhere before too long.

I thought Wayne quit drinkin' a long time ago? I heard he was a real bad alcoholic.

Paddy? is this the paddy that I know?

He did quit drinking. He got some law trouble and can't get high for a while...testing I believe......so he is drinking these days...hopefully he will be able to get back on his normal schedule again soon....it meade for a fun night, but it was obvious, he should not drink.

I saw Antisee, Unknown Hinson, and Hank III & Assjack in SC this week...what a damn good show.

Here are some pics of Antiseen's Jeff bleeding (he has an axe handle that the top is wrapped in barbed wire with whcih he hits upon his head at the show start...ah, theater!!), me and the King, and me and Shelton

We all drank a damn lot

Great show, great night of music...probably too heavy for most here (Antiseen and Assjack), but y'all need to check out Unknown Hinson, he is the King....and as always Hank III's country stuff is a strong recommend from me. In talking with Shelton, I mentioned my son wanting to meet him and he set up a private meet and greet for him next Wednesday when he comes to Atlanta....damned nice guy everytime I see him....

I don't know if this goes in the youtube thread or the concert attendance thread... :P From the show here in Cambridge tonight -

Apparently my hands are much steadier at a Reverend Glasseye concert than they are at a Waits concert...

There are no bad alcoholics - just bad booze.

not near as bad but in the same vein of opener odditiees, I once saw:

GnR open for The Cult
and
Quiet Riot open for Loverboy


at a festival once I saw The Ramones play on a stage just prior to Mel Torme'

Contiuning on in the same vein...


I had the great fortune of witnessing the Violent Femmes open for the Grateful Dead - possibly the strangest pairing I've seen, except for maybe my first concert ever...

Kiss Destroyer tour 1976. Opening act: Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band.


oddly,

I saw Kim Wilde open for Bowie once. That was not good at all.
