Just Got Tickets...
« on: June 21, 2018, 12:39:12 PM »
...for Chris Isaak on September 6.  It's a Thursday night, and I thought I'd be coaching our JVs that night against DH Conley.  But now I get to see Chris Isaak instead.  I almost waited too late.  Mostly only nose bleed seats left.  That's where I'll be sitting but I'm taking a handkerchief so I'll be okay.

Yeah, it has nothing to do with dabbing your eyes with the handkerchief during the sappy songs.

I don't even worry about that.  Let those tears flow!

Chris Isaak concert is tonight at 8pm.  Also got tickets for Brian Wilson in Santa Monica, CA in December.

I saw George Clinton about 12 years ago I think. Great show. Nowadays I listen to this funk jazz group called Galactic you might like. Best drummer on the planet plays for them (Stanton Moore). They are more jazz than funk but they are damn good.

Have heard of Moe.  I've seen him with Larry and Curly.  And sometimes Shemp.

Great concert.  In addition to his performance, he was very amiable and funny with the audience.  He had a surprising amount of interaction with the crowd, going out into the audience and speaking with them, as well as inviting a couple of girls up on stage.  He played for 2 hours.  Kind of surprised that he didn’t use “Wicked Game” or “Heart Shaped World” as an encore.  Was hoping he’d do “Kings of the Highway” or  “Wrong to Love You” but he had a killer take of Orbison’s “Pretty Woman” and Cash’s “Ring of Fire.”  He can play and sing anything.  Definitely a bucket list concert for me.  Great performer.

I am a huge Clinton/Parliament/Funkadelic fan. I'll have to give Galactic a listen. Are they similar to Brian Culbertson? I've been a fan of his for years. Saw him in Vegas back in May.

Clutch is going to be playing in Norfolk later this month. It's on a school night, but I'm awfully tempted to make the road trip.

We are flying to Illinois in November to see Tommy James & the Shondells along with The Grass Roots.  Of course, it's not really the Grass Roots since no one in this band was in it in the '60s and '70s.  I've seen Creed Bratton in concert (He was one of the stars of TV's "The Office") and he was an early member of The Grass Roots.  They should at least have gotten him to play with the band to give them some authenticity.  Otherwise, they're just a Grass Roots-cover band.  Regardless, we're getting tickets.  Tommy James is the real deal.

Got tickets to see The Arctic Monkeys in Seattle in a few weeks. Forced by the GF to go see Luke Bryan in 2 weeks. Country makes my ears bleed.
