Very close to my own. I do All Hail West Texas, Tallahassee, The Sunset Tree, and The Coroner's Gambit, and occasionally skim random EPs.

It still feels good to do a sing along of either No Children or Best ever death metal band, and you're guaranteed one of those in the encore.

Paul Simon last week in St. Paul.

Worst audience ever. Person behind us left their phone ringer on and answered it. People to my side doing social media with the screen brightness on full blast. During the final song, Sound of Silence, a couple behind me were talking at full volume. I asked them to be quiet, and they did, but c'mon. Silence is in the title. Jerks.

Saw the LSD tour earlier in the week. Sorry, JFelix, the title was for Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, and Dwight Yoakam. Steve went on first, then Lucinda. Both excellent. I've seen Yoakam before, so I stayed through 4 songs, and heard 2 more while I waited for my Uber. Wanted to be the crush leaving. My wife couldn't go, as she got held up at work, so a friend from work went with me.

Saw Art Garfunkel last night in Rochester, Mn ( why play Rochester MN instead of Minneapolis? He mentioned coming here for his psoriasis treatment at the Mayo clinic)

I was probably half the age of the average attendee. The audience was mostly respectful, and Garfunkel was accompanied by a two-piece band. Garfunkel's voice isn't what it was, but still a solid and intimate performance. The older people in the crowd seemed to enjoy the scripted poetry reading, but I could have done without.

At one point, Garfunkel remarked that Paul Simon was playing Madison Square Garden the same evening, to which someone in the audience screamed "fuck Paul Simon!"

Simon and Garfunkel fans are weird.

Why? at the Cedar Cultural Center. They played a 10-year anniversary show for their 2nd album, Alopecia. Why? has had a pretty uneven career - some great early EPs and albums, followed by some that I consider near unlistenable, so focusing on their strongest album is certainly welcome and they sounded great. A lot more polished than the first time I heard them play this material in 2008.

God, I'm getting old.

Saw John Hiatt acoustic at a small theater in Beverly, MA on Friday evening. Excellent show, and my brother and his wife bought the VIP tickets, which included a Hiatt tote bag and signed poster. Since they didn't need 2 signed posters or tote bags, I got one. They also each got a copy of his new Cd, but I already had it.

Here's the Why? concert, because I'm the kind of dork that will rest my phone on my leg and record the whole show.

The sound of joy is enlightenment. I can't find US tour dates for this year beyond New York, I bet that would be a good show.

Sun Ra has been dead for 25 years! The Arkestra shouldn't be a thing anymore!

Marshall Allen's still leading them, and that dude is 94 goddamn years old. Better lock down tickets 'cause who know if he'll even be alive come January.

Show notes says there's gonna be 15 people onstage, dancers, costumes, lights shows and projections. It's gonna be buck wild. :thumbs:

Night One is at the Portland art museum which I've never actually been to proper (I've seen a few films there), night two they booked my favorite movie theater in town, the Hollywood.

Out of sheer fucking curiosity since I've never seen an Arena show, I've just picked up a ticket to see Twenty One Pilots. Will report back this week.

Also: my friends and I are guaranteed to be the oldest people at this show who aren't parents. Also the highest.

Because I'm a nerd, I've sort of kept track of the shows I've been to. I had some gaps in the my records because the shows weren't on setlist.fm, so I spent the past few hours going through my old emails or tracking down the tour dates online. I think I've got most of them, barring openers. Yeah, my first ever show was The Eagles, what of it? Incidentally I decided that night that I did not like the Eagles. Apparently 1/5 shows I go to are Andrew Bird.

I saw him play in a parking garage. I was volunteering at an outdoor music fest, it got rained out, so he improvised. And it was awesome.

I always forget setlist.fm actually can track what you've seen and I should stick to it. I just turned to a friend the other day and asked something along the lines of "wouldn't it be cool if there a letterboxd for concerts?" I just added everything I could think of, but I don't know if it's 100% complete:

Pitchfork Midwinter Festival in Chicago in February (with tickets to Oneohtrix Point Never, Laurie Anderson, Panda Bear, Deerhunter, Tortoise playing TNT, Slowdive and William Basinski playing the Disintegration Loops with the Chicago Philharmonic) and I'm FINALLY seeing Weird Al with an orchestra backing him in August.

Out of sheer fucking curiosity since I've never seen an Arena show, I've just picked up a ticket to see Twenty One Pilots. Will report back this week.

Yo yo yo, I know in Portland and Tacoma you could score Nosebleed seats to twenty one pilots for $7. Everyone should take advantage and see this show, it's fucking wild. It's like 80% magic tricks, cars set on fire, they crowdsurf a drum set into the goddamn audience and hella confetti cannons. A+++, will Trench again.

Concerts in 2019 are already off to a good start. Two nights of the Sun Ra Arkestra in January. Pitchfork Midwinter Festival in Chicago in February (with tickets to Oneohtrix Point Never, Laurie Anderson, Panda Bear, Deerhunter, Tortoise playing TNT, Slowdive and William Basinski playing the Disintegration Loops with the Chicago Philharmonic) and I'm FINALLY seeing Weird Al with an orchestra backing him in August.


If anything is missing from Setlist.fm, you can add it. I literally spent last evening scouring old email conversations and venue alerts to fill in the gaps.

That Chicago fest looks fucking awesome, Oneohtrix Point Never, Panda Bear, and Basinki in one weekend? Sweet. I'd like to go but I don't think I can swing the expense right now.

Only 2019 shows I have lined up are Nick Mason of Pink Floyd - they're playing Syd Barrett material, otherwise I wouldn't give a shit about Floyd's drummer. The other, Beirut. I haven't cared about them since like 2008, but I liked their early stuff ok enough.

Seeing Brian's list inspired me. This is no where near comprehensive. It is based purely on ticket stubs that I still have. There are many shows where I didn't have tickets (paid at the door) or that have been lost. Note that every venue that's got "pavilion" in the name is the same place, just different banks sponsoring it.

Brian Wilson and band doing Christmas music.

Cheapest ticket in the house was $69+ fees. For Brian Wilson, playing holiday music.

No. And it seemed most of Minneapolis agreed, since half the venue still had seats for sale tonight. So I watched the scalper sites. 5PM - tickets were down to $40, but that wasn't good enough. 6PM, some seats were down to $33. If it was a Pet Sounds or Smile tour, I'd be all over that, but c'mon, Christmas music. Around 7:10PM, ticket prices from all those desperate to recoup some money were down to $10. Score. I'll risk $10 to watch Brian Wilson stare blankly ahead.

And you know what? I had a lot of fun. At $10, I don't need to be cynical. I mean, yeah, sure, part of the Brian Wilson experience is to take in all the amazing musicians who seem in on a grand joke with the audience and pretend that Wilson knows where he is and what he's doing. He forgot the words to Frosty the Snow Man. He introduced a musician who wasn't there. And around the 5th song in, he just kept coughing into the microphone and they didn't cut the feed. That's the real Brian Wilson experience. He didn't do much for the remaining 10 or so songs in that set. Curtains close, and there's no fooling the audience that there's more to come - Wilson didn't look like he had any intention to leave his piano bench.

And so the curtains open, and they play some Beach Boys tunes. Good Vibrations. And suddenly Wilson has his voice. He's lucid. He knows the words, and acts like he gives a fuck. This continues through Good Vibrations and California Girls. And sure, i'll clap along to Barbara Ann or Help me Rhonda. Why not? It's one of the few times where I see people of all ages get excited for Barbara Ann. I thought this was just a song people tolerated, not liked, but here we are.

A solid $10 experience. Someone got hosed, face value on that ticket had to have been at least $130 or more.

Also I'm wondering if they're trying to hide Brian Wilson being immobile or something - he moved only once in the set, to turn and shake the hands of his son in law, and he looked very strained. The curtains kept us from seeing him enter or leaving the stage.

I'd pay twenty dollars for that seat, that there's a bargain.

I'm already having anxiety dreams about missing my flight to Chicago for Pitchfork's Midwinter Festival. It doesn't even go down until February.

ALSO: Pinback next week! I've actually never listened to Pinback, I just listen to Rob Crow's 900 other bands.

Anyone want to share some transcendent concert moments? Like, 99.9% I'm stuck in my own headspace, and I can appreciate the music on some level, but I can't shut my brain off. And then some magic happens, maybe it's a technically impressive moment, or just something absolutely touching?


This isn't the performance I saw, but it's a chunk of the song. Andrew Bird performing the Water Jet Cilice in 2007 at the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee. This was probably my 3rd or 4th Andrew bird show in a year. Some were entertaining, and there was a dud or two of a show mixed in.

And then there was this song. Bird really hasn't done much with the song, there's a stripped down instrumental version on one of his outtake albums, and a short pop version on an EP. The live version is something else, and rarely played. You know those cliched times where people say a song brought them to tears at a show? That was this fucking song. I'd never heard it until that moment, but it just landed hard. Amazing what one person and a loop pedal can do.

Belle and Sebastian - This one is weird. Maybe I was just in one of my depressive funks, and this show was a highlight during a dark time. The short version of the story is many years back, I had supported a Kickstarter to fund a film by this band's front man, Stuart Murdoch. The reward was to introduce the band at the movie's release party in New York City. That release party never happened, some years pass, and I get contacted asking if I want to introduce the band at some other event. Hell yes! They were playing a festival near me. And then they said "festivals are very time sensitive, we probably can't let that happen." The consolation was that I could meet the band after the show, but had no direction on where to meet them. Whatever. I got thrown two VIP tickets to the event, and an old acquaintance I hadn't seen since high school was in town. She was a bundle of positivity, and when the band played "The Boy with the Arab Strap", they brought festival goers on stage to dance. I was far from the stage, but it didn't matter. Something about seeing a bunch of other people up there having fun was enough to make me cry tears of happiness. And they just kept letting more and more people up there. Damn.

Apparently that's a trope of their shows, as evidenced by other videos on youtube, but still, awesome.


We were told earlier to find some guy named Dreadlock Steve or something like that, and he'd let us in to see the band. No instruction of where to find the guy. After the show, we explored the fest grounds, but no real idea of where to go, and not really expecting to be able to meet the band. And there he was, a busy looking man with dreadlocks. Dreadlock Steve! He seemed to be expecting us. Stuart was really hospitable - this wasn't one of those pay a lot of money situations to say hello for a second and leave. Him and bandmate Stevie shot the shit with us, and offered us drinks. Not awkward at all. It was a good night.

One last one. Bon Iver has done a few shows with a dance group out of Minneapolis - I had no idea what the hell we were in for. Were they dancing to his hits? Would it be maximum cheese?
It ended up being some symbiotic project - music made especially for this dance group, and it was fucking awesome. Absolutely transfixed for the whole show. It was just perfect. The audience. The music. The visual presentation, the dancers. The message against police brutality. There's not much out there for performances or recordings, so some of it only gets to live in memory. Not a single song out of Bon Iver's catalog was played, and the show was perfect for it. I do hope they release some of this officially. The world needs to know!

Brian, I've had a similar experience where music has literally brought me to tears during a concert. What's interesting is that my wife doesn't have that same experience, but my daughter (from an early age) would cry while listening to music. In one very particular case, it was an instrumental on a children's DVD of animals and when I would ask her why she was crying she would say that the music was sad. The accompanying video was all about giraffes and just showed them galloping and interacting with each other. There was nothing at all sad about the visuals.

My favorite "brought to tears" moment was seeing Wilco open for R.E.M. at the Hollywood Bowl on the Yankee Hotel Foxtrot tour. I'd been a big Wilco fan for years and had seen them in little theaters in L.A. This time, we were at the Bowl, sitting just right of center and in the section just before the box seats, so we were very close. It was my wife and I and the guy who introduced the two of us years ago. It was still sunny out and sound was just perfect. I mean, AMAZINGLY perfect. As they reached the end of "Ashes of American Flags" and started into "Reservations", the tears just started flowing. Everything about that moment was better than I ever imagined it would be. It was almost surreal how perfect it was. I don't have a link to that performance but you can find both songs on your streaming service of choice.



Another moment where music just "hit" me was in Athens, GA in 1992. There was a band that was just getting started there called The Dashboard Saviors. Their manager's girlfriend (Kim) worked with me and convinced me to go check them out. They didn't have a record yet and I was just out of the military so I had no connections to anyone in the music scene there. I met Kim and her boyfriend Len at this tiny dive called The Downstairs that was about the size of my apartment living room. If that place held 40 people, I'd be surprised. It was below ground level and was basically a converted basement with two rooms. One room held the band (and their 30 closest friends) and the other had the bar (cans and bottles only) and had room for about 10 people. I didn't know a single song these guys were going to play so I'm expecting to hear a hook here or there that might excite me. They did four or five songs, one of them a cover, and then they launched into "Town". They had me from the very first line. It was like Todd McBride described me and all of my friends growing up in Okeechobee, FL. There was nothing to do there and everyone wanted to escape. The first verse is about a guy making a Molotov cocktail to throw into a Salvation Army box just to watch it burn. The chorus is, "Jesus, get me outta this town."

I became a lifelong fan and a friend of McBride's. He dabbles in music still (the video above is from a one-off reunion show they did) but mostly he's settled down near Athens. I still maintain that some of the best lyrics on the planet are on their three studio albums (Kitty, Spinnin' On Down & LoveSorrowHatredMadness).

I know I have more but those are the main two that come to mind quickly.

The only time I've experienced a real transcendent experience was at Kate Bush in London in 2014. Hearing Kate's voice often elicits goosebumps in me, and that show, I had them mots of the night, and I cried out of sheer joy 3-4 times. It was the most emotionally draining concert I've ever been to.

I cry at almost every show I go to but that might be the drugs.
