What can I say - I'm a regular Dr. Dre... ;)


NOW, about the show......

Greastest show of my life.  I have never had so much fun, nor had so much alcohol poured on me.  I've also never seen a band drink so much onstage and play with so much heart.  It was everything I could've wished for - a feriocious, drunken mess of rock and roll, with a few ballads thrown in for good measure.  Craig's stories are just gravy on the potatoes.

And the encore, well being one of the 50 or so that got pulled onstage after was so much fun.  I was about 3 feet from Bobby wailing on his drums that were having beer poured all over them.  I was also about an inch away from Craig when he collapsed onto the bass drum, only to get up and walk off stage like he just conquered a country.

What a night.





you were there last night? areyou from massachusetts?
my teacher went, and afterwards sat down with mr main singerman for a dinner with his family.

id idnt' go, but i heard it was good. i also heard he has a bad stage prescence... too chatty apparantly.

however, glad you enjoyed it. :)

Yep, I was there, but I'm not from Mass.  I'm from Western Canada, but I was just in New York so I decided to make the jaunt to Boston.

As for Craig, it's really a love him or hate him thing.  That goes for him onstage as well.  I found his little chats really entertaining, but can totally see others wouldn't.

Just a heads up.  Not sure if this is a repeat or not but The Hold Steady is performing on Jimmy Kimmel tonight.
I'm digging, digging deep in myself, but who needs a shovel when you have a little boy like mine.

Nice!  I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it.  So did they have people crowd the stage during the last song?

They sure did! It was a very involved show... I had looked over some setlists and noticed they didn't switch it up much so I was a little disappointed going into it, boy did that change. It was a very intimate show and the dialog between the band and the audience was very personal. I'd highly recommend that everyone go see them.

Wonderful.  

One more question: Did they play 'Chicago Seemed Tired Last Night'?  It's my favourite song of theirs and they didn't play it when I seen them.

I'm pretty sure they didn't. I like that song as well and saw they had been playing the song in the encore. That is one part of the show they do seem to switch up though.

Just a heads up to all you vinyl fans and collectors out there. Boys and girls in America is being pressed to vinyl and getting released on the 16th. Limited edition blue and pink vinyl is avialable over at the website and is limited to 400 pressings of each color... I couldn't decide so I bought both, I'll give the pink one to the wife.

Not trying to be a saleman here, just a heads up...

This is just about my favorite band at the moment. I've been listening to "Almost Killed Me" and "Boys And Girls In America" almost constantly for about a month now (unfortunately neglecting Separation Sunday).
A show pairing them with MMJ would be a bizarre but beautiful...

Get and listen to Seperation Sunday now... I may be biased but that's the first I listened to and I neglect the other two.

It is such a story album from start to finish, you'll love it!

Ooh only 400 of each color!  I snapped up the blue last night, and I just ordered the pink tonight.  They will compliment my Milkcrate Mosh 7" wonderfully.  

Another heads up: They're on Letterman tonight.  


And SS is my favourite.  If they can ever top that, I don't even want to know how good they'd be.
