Just got back from Bonnaroo... It was awesome.

**** Kanye.
Did you get to see Pearl Jam?  The set list they played looked like one of their all time best shows (to me at least)

Got tickets for the Metal Masters tour at Nissan Pavilion, so I'll be seeing Judas Priest, Motorhead, Heaven & Hell, and Testament come August 7th. Should be a great show.

Pearl Jam was excellent. Eddie shouldn't talk, though... the dude rambled about peace and love and puppies, and how insane oil prices is what we get for electing a Texan as president. Don't mess with Texas, Eddie.

i saw DEVO in Boston on Friday - they were amazing. they don't play much anymore, but if they ever pop up in your area, it's totally worth it.

Bump, as I'll be seeing these guys tonight.  :D



Four of my heros- Dio, Iommi, Halford, and Lemmy- In one night! I'm stoked.

Testament is also playing. Anyone know if they're any good?

I dug them in the early-mid 90's when I was going through my "stoner" phase.  Haven't listened to them in awhile, but they're a lot heavier then those three bands.  If you liked Sepultura, Pantera, Megadeth etc back in the day then you won't mind Testament.

Just got back from the Metal Masters show.

It was ******* incredible.

Nissan Pavilion is notorious for their terrible parking and terrible management, but I was able to drive there, buy a t-shirt, and get my lawn seats before the first band started. Testament was up first, and although I'm not familiar with their music in particular, I'm a fan of Pantera, Metallica, and the like, so I enjoyed it. After a long wait, Motorhead took the stage, and put on a great 45 minute long set. Heaven & Hell were up next, and were simply amazing. The played a 15 minute long Heaven & Hell, and ended with Neon Knights. After seemingly hours of waiting, Judas Priest finally took the stage. They played some stuff from the new album, as well as some older songs. It was getting near 10, and halfway through Priest's setlist, I left after Breaking The Law. Overall, a great concert, and a great four-and-a-half hours of metal.

Bought my ticket for Metallica's October 26th show in Des Moines. The price only came to about $70 after all the service charges, but I did choose will call to get my tickets, so that saved a little scratch.

I can't wait. Been wanting to see Metallica for a long time.  :)

Went to a couple of shows over the weekend:

Sept. 26 - Neko Case - OKC

Sept. 28 - Beck - Tulsa


Got a couple more on deck:

Tuesday, November 11 - Kathleen Edwards in Dallas

Wednesday, December 31 - The Flaming Lips in Oklahoma City

Went to the last Lips New Year's Eve show, and it was a blast, so I'll be there again this year, too.  Hell of a fun way to ring in the new year.

You'll love the show. I saw Metallica this past weekend, and it was phenomenal.

Here's the setlist for the Des Moines show:

That Was Just Your Life
The End of the Line
Creeping Death
The Memory Remains
One
Broken, Beat & Scarred
Cyanide
Sad But True
Wherever I May Roam
For Whom The Bell Tolls
The Day That Never Comes
Master Of Puppets
Battery
Nothing Else Matters
Enter Sandman
-------------------
Die Die My Darling
Hit The Lights
Seek and Destroy

I could have done without all the stuff from the Black Album in favor of Fade to Black or The Four Horsemen, but they had to please the casual fans too. The new songs played live are great, though instead of Cyanide I'd have liked All Nightmare Long.
The Memory Remains was a nice little surprise.

Just got back from seeing Kings of Leon with The Whigs and We Are Scientists. Excellent show, and the Kings played an extended set since it was the last show of their tour and they were back home in Nashville. Did a nice mix of all four albums.

Other than this show, I've seen Jack's Mannequin twice in the last month, once in Atlanta, once in Anaheim. Great shows both times, the Atl show was the kickoff of the tour, and Anahiem was a OC/hometown vibe show. He covered Something Corporate, the Boss, and MGMT.

Here's a pic from the show:



I'm in there somewhere.  Quite a party.
