16. Dez. 2011, 4:01 von suzqsFri 25 Nov – Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band was the Friday night after Thanksgiving. Maybe I was feeling sluggish, but it was an effort to go and I hoped it would be worth it.
Once at the arena, we were greeted with "Absolutely No Cameras" and searched. I kept my Flip hidden the whole evening which probably put me in a bad mood. I did manage a few pics but was careful, as Security was confronting those they spotted. And, I was just not interested in the hassle.
I was excited about having 2nd row, and soon learned that wasn't even fun. They made the first three rows all the way across and charged big bucks to sit there. No aisles, no way out--I never got the chance to go buy merchandise. I didn't drink beer because the climb out was past too many legs--I was Stuck In The Middle
There was a first act although none was advertised. They were entertaining and covered Pink Houses.
It was nice to see Bob Seger perform Old Time Rock & Roll early in the show. …

I briefly mentioned Willem Maker (born Wes Doggett) in my Best of 2010 Music list, but I didn't speak to my sense of his being Overlooked--and I should have. Consider this post a belated remedying of that oversight.
Actually, Maker may not remain Overlooked for much longer. In the course of looking around for links for this post, I learned that Maker received brief mention in this past Sunday's New York Times, in belated acknowledgement of Maker's album Agapao, released back in April. Ben Ratliff describes Maker's music as "sophisticated southern-rock trance music, composed with open-tuned guitar and boot heel, adjoining blues and country and heterophonic gospel music," and that is hard to improve upon.
But, this being the Internet, I'll elaborate anyway.
At the heart of Maker's music's power is that trance-like quality. It owes something of its quality to the droning, proto-boogie style of north-Mississippi blues practiced by R.L. …
9. Jun. 2011, 9:41 von Pekingblues"On a long and lonesome highway, east of Omaha.." The opening line of the Bob Seger classic, Turn the Page, that got the 12,000 plus, Seger fans that filled the Qwest Center in Omaha extatic,cheering and singing along. It was a once in-a-lifetime esperience that I have dreamt of since the late 70's. Bob Seger, one of the hardest working musicians during the 70's & 80's that took a well deserved break to raise a family. What an amazing comeback tour! I rate the concert amongst the best I've ever experienced. Acts such as Queen with Freddie Mercury, Deep Purple, Crosby, Stills & Nash are all up there as equals.

17. Mär. 2011, 11:26 von msflissWed 16 Mar – The Decemberists, Blind Pilot
I've listened to Blind Pilot a few times on my last.fm player, but didn't have any enduring memory of their sound from that experience. Not knowing quite what the expect, I was pleasantly surprised - obviously, any band asked to open for The Decemberists will be quality, but Blind Pilot managed well in front of such a large crowd. They gave the impression of being a pop/rock band using acoustic instruments, rather than the folk-influenced rock I'm used to from Colin Meloy. I thought the first two tracks were a bit lack-luster, but by the time they got to The Story I Heard and 3 Rounds and a Sound, they'd really hit their stride. Sadly, there were quite a few people at the Apollo who weren't there for the music and instead chose to chat loudly throughout Blind Pilot's set, which spoiled the experience a bit for me. Others had a similar complaint. Why pay £20 for a ticket if you're just going to gas with your mates rather than enjoy the music?!

Your favourite lyric from this song: Ummmmm.... "le mélange des couleurs."
Does this song have bad memories attached? No, nothing but good. :)

Song Number 2: You'll Accomp'ny Me by Bob Seger
What's the last line of this song? "You'll accompany me." Suprising, no?
Have you ever seen this artist live? No. Is he still performing? o.o
Who does this song remind you of? My Grandad, but I don't know why. My Dad too.
Song Number 3: Chattahoochee by Alan Jackson
What's the first line of this song? "Way down yonder on the Chattahoochee, it gets hotter than a hoochie coochie." Good old Americana.
Where did you first hear this song? At Dad's, of course. This is so his thing. <3
