Went to see Guster do an acoustic show at the Vic last night. What an awesome show. Jeff Garlin is the opening act for the tour - he's funny, but I just want the music.

Nice. Good group. One of the members is also in The LeeVees. Best Hannukah group of all time
Johnny Cash tribute at ACL Live for what would have been his 80th birthday - Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Sheryl Crow, Pat Monahan from Train, Ronnie Dunn, Ray LaMontagne, Lucinda Williams, and a huge list of others with an all-star band fronted by Don Was. Hosted by Matthew McConaughay.

Freakin awesome show - they taped it so be on the lookout for the concert DVD if this is your thing.

Saw The Boss and the new E Street Band last night in San Jose. Uneven concert with some amazing highlights. Can't believe a 62-year old can still play for 3 hours (without a break) and move like he does. Nice tribute to Clarence too.

Glad to read that. I only saw them once, and it was one of the last shows Danny Federici (sp?) played. I'm thankful I got to see the entire lineup.

Saw him two weeks ago in Cleveland. 6th Boss show, and I thought it was his best. solid the whole way, everyone on their feet the entire 3 hours. Can't pick a favorite, but 'Youngstown' always has special meaning, and 'My City of Ruins' was great. Pulled a little girl (about 10) out of the crowd to sing on the stage, which was a cool touch.
Clarence tribute very moving.
Just got back from Jazz Fest in New Orleans. Saw, among others, Dr. John and the greyboy allstars, Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews, Kermit Ruffins (at Vaughan's on Thursday night and at Jazz Fest) and Tom Petty.
The annual "SunFest" is coming up this weekend in West Palm Beach.

I have tickets for Sunday night: Foreigner is playing. But my kids want to see "Pitbull" instead... Eek

The wife wants to see Matisyahu.
I think I want to go to Osheaga in Montreal this year. Is it same location? I know there's no camping (fine by me!) but what's the hotel situation like, Montrealers? Simples?

Nice! This is a music bucket list item for us that we're hoping to check off next year.

Good idea, Adam. I just might check this out for once.

No specific recommendations. Check out hotels.com. I've come across some pretty good deals in Montreal for out-of-towners with that one. For Montreal, best overall IMO.

Check there first. If you want feedback on specific Hotels, we'd be happy to provide. Wink

Highly, highly recommended. Had an absolutely amazing time. First time in the 40 years of the NO Jazz Fest that Tom Petty played.

Yeah. I call it "SunPest" because it snarls up all the traffic around downtown West Palm. I can hear the bands rehearse during business hours on Thursday and Friday.

Absolutely!
I caught Roger Waters' performance of The Wall on Tuesday night. While I find the music somewhat "dark" the performance and the visuals were stunning.

Glad you enjoyed it and they made it your way! Smile
Moutin Reunion Quartet at the Green Mill last night. Man those guys are tight. In the states for a couple of weeks including last night and tonight at the Green Mill.
Last Friday: Dave Matthews Band
Targeted for Summer: Peter Gabriel So Tour; Roger Waters The Wall; Seal; Coldplay; & more DMB. We'll see how many I can make it to.
At the behest of my wife and one of her best friends I’m taking them to see the Scissor Sisters in a couple of weeks. I’m thinking of turning the tables on them and buying some latex hot pants and a sailor top to wear to it.
