Saw Testament, Prong and Sepultura a few weeks back. Testament headlined and was crushingly awesome. Prong wasn't bad either despite not playing any songs off the first album. Sepultura was as god awful as I imagined they would be. Boring as hell if they weren't playing Max's songs. Sad.

Heading up to DC. Next month to see U2 at RFK Staduim for the 30th anniversary of the Jishua Tree tour. Saw them 30 years ago at RFK. Some of the original group of us are getting together and going. God - I sound old.....

I was in Los Angeles over Labor Day weekend and had the opportunity to see the man himself, John Williams, conduct the LA Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl! The show was AWESOME!

First hour was David Newman conducting. They performed the main theme from Robin Hood (1938), Dracula (1979) and performed live music to the Judy Garland number from A Star Is Born, along with some other minor music.

Then after intermission, John Williams comes out. It was an awesome scene, with every kid in the crowd igniting a toy lightsaber! He started with a minor chase song from Indiana Jones, followed by some minor themes from Close Encounters of the Third Kind. He then introduced the Harry Potter themes, which were HP and the Chamber of Secrets, Aunt Marge's Waltz, and the main HP theme.

Then, he brought out Kobe Bryant to narrate an animated short film about his basketball career, which Williams conducted music for!

Then came Star Wars! He teased playing some TLJ music and then said "I'll wait until next year." Ha! They performed the Scherzo for the X-Wings from TFA, Rey's Theme, then the Star Wars main theme with ANH intro and ANH end credits.

After that I was geeked and didn't really pay attention to the next song, and then they performed the Imperial March!

Encore was the Superman theme, after which Williams told the kids in the crowd it was past his bedtime.

An awesome show in a beautiful venue!

Took my fiancee to see Janet Jackson last night.  :-\ She enjoyed it but i wasn't a fan (not a fan of her music in general). My biggest issue was the fact that she only sang a few songs and let the tape do the rest.
