Placebo is good? I saw them once about 5 years ago opening up for Stabbing Westward and the only thing I can recall about them is that the power to their amps went out and they stopped playing and that was the only reaction they got from the crowd, an applause right off the stage.

As for some great concerts I've seen here's my top 5 all time, though not in any particular order:

3/16/02: Dream Theater (this was the 3rd show in 02 where they covered Master of Puppets in its entirety as part of a 3.5 hr show)
2/9/97: Metallica (had front row seats, was a blast, too bad they suck now)
7/19/98: Ozzfest 98 (can't beat Ozzy, Megadeth, Tool, Sevendust, and Motorhead)
7/31/99: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers (just an awesome musical event)
6/26/99: Local H (part of a local venue all day event in Chicago called MOBFest)

So. . .  How far would you go to see your favorite band?

WILCO:

APR-21 COLUMBIA, MO - The Blue Note
APR-23 NEW ORLEANS, LA - Orpheum
APR-24 AUSTIN, TX - Stubb's BBQ
APR-27 SANTA FE, NM - The Lensic Theatre
APR-28 FLAGSTAFF, AZ -  The Orpheum Theatre
APR-29 TUCSON, AZ - Rialto Theatre

Thanks, guys, for yet another year of not playing Oklahoma--continuing your six-year-plus streak.

True, we may be the armpit of America, but throw us a f--king bone, will ya?

Now to decide which direction to travel 500 miles in to see these guys. . .

I've seen Aerosmith in person once, and during which, I threw a ketchup packet that glanced off Steven Tyler's cheek.

Now, normally, I'd be ashamed of throwing something at an artist--but that's something that Steven Tyler hasn't been since 1976. . .

But, yeah.  Prince tickets go on sale here in about nine hours--I'm doing some big-time flip-flopping on whether or not to pick any up.  Used to be a huge fan, only saw him once, about six years ago, but since then, have lost almost all interest in the man. . .

Yeah, well, the man may be cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs, but he's made some excellent music over the past twenty-five years. . .

Twelve hours and one-hundred and seventy-five bucks later, I'm the proud owner of two front-row-on-the-floor tickets to see a concert by a man who hasn't put out a decent record in well over a decade!

Woo-hoo!

So, my official next concert is Velvet Revolver in Dallas on June 19th.

Bonnaroo, a week or two earlier, is becoming less and less likely, but you never know.

But that's kind of okay, because coming up in August in Dallas is the two-day Lollapalooza show, featuring the great Sonic Youth on Day One, followed by the almighty Flaming Lips on Day Two (along with a host of other terrific bands, of course).

And the Prince show last month was fantastic.  Best non-general admission seats I've ever had.  And, [swoon]he looked at me, and we made eye contact. . .[/swoon]

Coming this August/Sept: The Cure, Morrissey, the Pixies, and Siouxsie and the Banshees. What a great time to be alive!

The Pixies are going to be in Austin on 9/18 for the ACL Music Festival, and their only other Texas dates are in October:  in Houston on 10/17, and in Grand Prairie on 10/19.

Pollstar

(Might have to hit that Grand Prairie show myself. . .)

And that Curiosa tour hits Dallas on 8/14--just about ten days before the Lollapalooza tour.  

Cure/Curiosa info

Interesting.
