  1. If you go to Bullseye be sure to allow time to eat/drink at the Comet Cafe next door. Great food, and every Sunday evening is Bacon Night where they bring out free baskets of bacon .
  2. Just added to the lineup: Cage The Elephant Band of Horses Dawes Trampled By Turtles Chris Stapleton

  4. I'm just trying to get people to take a step back and see it from a different perspective. To the fans that lost out on the concert (even though they can attend another show), it's a big deal. To the gay couple that has a restaurant refuse to cater their wedding (even though they can go to another restaurant), it's a big deal. To a person who is dying because they haven't eaten for days or a child currently being held captive and abused, they both seem like "first world problems indeed". Matter of fact, most of the issues we argue about in this country would seem like first world problems
  5. Soooo, not really feeling sympathy for folks who can still pick from many other restaurants to cater their wedding instead of Joe Homophobe's Pizza Place. First world problems indeed. I don't really feel that way, just pointing out that different things mean a lot to different people. I feel some level of sympathy for all involved, but to someone who is going to die in the next five minutes because they have had no food or water for days, or to a parent who helplessly watches their child die of a cancer for which there is no cure, they would gladly change places with a person on either s
  6. Their first album was hit or miss for me, but then I saw them do a 3 song live radio gig at a little cafe last year and was very impressed. The fact that Aaron Dessner produced and wrote the horn and string arrangements has me very excited for the new album. I picked it up but haven't listened yet. They were pretty great on Letterman last night too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8A_6gKFItwc
  7. Page previews 8 bonus songs from the remasters. https://music.yahoo.com/blogs/yahoo-music/jimmy-page-previews-eight-previously-unheard-led-zeppelin-005837491.html;_ylt=A0LEVwgZf3ZTrH4AB8dXNyoA;_ylu=X3oDMTEzaXQ4cmF2BHNlYwNzcgRwb3MDMQRjb2xvA2JmMQR2dGlkA1ZJUDQzOV8x
  8. I understand. These threads usually get ugly (this one has actually been pretty civil by comparison), and I am referring more to the posts by music fans that say you're a simple minded idiot if you believe in anything but science.
  9. I assume everyone on this board is a huge fan of music. I've seen this same argument on other music boards. It always surprises me how some people can be so into the beauty of the creation of music, and be totally moved by a concert experience that puts you on another plane, and not feel that there is something out there bigger than us. It's hard to put into words what I feel at a concert, when the band is locked in together, producing something greater than their individual parts. The crowd is there, in harmony, all for the same purpose. It can be euphoric, and the last thing I want to d
  10. Is it just me, or was Jeff Lynne saying "hey bullfrog" when he was singing background vocals with Dave Grohl?
  11. I've been very lucky that my 9 and 3 yr old daughters like a lot of the stuff I listen to. My oldest is a budding piano singer/songwriter who wants to be like Regina Spektor someday and just learned to play "Samson" by ear. My youngest was calmed as a baby by playing Radiohead In Rainbows - From the Basement and by singing Fake Plastic Trees. As far as Wilco, the oldest loves Sky Blue Sky and Walken, and the youngest is more a fan of The Whole Love. They like pop radio stuff as well, but I let them get their fill (as long as the songs are appropriate) so they don't rebel against my music.
  12. Just picked that one up this morning and listened to a few of the songs. What do you think? Reminds me of First Aid Kit. Very good harmonies. Wish it had more dynamics from what I've heard so far. Still, pretty phenomenal for a 16 and 18 yr. old. My 9 yr. old has played a few gigs and is starting to write her own music, so I'm very interested in listening to younger artists.
  13. Actually saw this concert tour on AXS TV about a month ago. The lineup was Everclear, Live, Sponge and Filter. Live's lead singer was wearing a shirt, but he did have a mohawk.
  14. They also get in earlier than 4:30, but I am guessing the number of people who went that route is limited and getting close will be very doable.
