I wouldn't go see Dropkick Murphy's if they dropkicked me.

On second thoughts, I wouldn't go see them anyway.

Through the fog of my marijuana memory, I just remembered that, even more bizarrely than the Violent Femmes opening for the Dead, I saw STING open for the Dead at Chicago's Soldier Field in the early 90's!


There was a bit grumbling and puzzled looks of "what the fuck?" amongst the gathered throng.


stingingly,

Just back from Amsterdam.
Toumani Diabaté & the Symmetric Orchestra at the Paradiso.
They rocked the joint with their westafrican rhythms.
I've never seen so much joy on a stage.
Wish I could understand the stories the singers told with so much passion.
After 2 hours Toumani introduced the 15 piece band one by one, another excuse for the virtuosos for showing of. The crowd went crazy.
When everyone finally left the stage the old master sat down at his kora, we all got closer and he played one of the most moving pieces of music I've ever heard. My wife was in tears and she wasn't the only one. It was magical.

Hah, my friend just called me, he's at a "GWAR" concert here in town. I probably would've went (for the hell of it), but I had no idea they were coming.

I saw N'Diaye Rose and his drum ensemble several years back... forgot to mention him in my concerts list...

Also somwhere I have wanted to mention a few non-musical-type individuals I have seen giving performances/ presentations:

Marcel Marceau

Dr. Jane Goodall ... way cool.

playwright Edward Albee

Hal Holbrook (as Mark Twain)

George Carlin (as George Carlin)

Nice! Saw Rev. Glasseye here a couple of weeks ago... I really like the new band formation with the two members of HUMANWINE + 3 members of RG.

It must have been in the very early 80's... can't remember him too well but remember being very impressed at the time.

Shoot louder, surf! I can't hear you!

Obscure Mastroianni-referencingly, Tiver

Yes, DC, but have you ever seen them together?
