We're going to the Pitchfork Festival on the 19th. Only 2 bands that I want to see, so far. Who else shouldn't I miss?

If Vegas doesn't conflict with the Ian Anderson show (I know they're around the same time) I'll :smurf: do everything I can to make it work. It would be a lot of fun and frankly i am due for a vacation. Once you settle on the dates with PIB let's talk about the details so I can get a financial picture and plan in my head.

I've had my Deep Purple / B.O.C. tix for a while now. The show is on Aug. 6th.
I just found out that the weekend before(Aug.2nd) the DP show, B.O.C. will be playing a free two hour show in Marina Del Ray(LA).
Can't pass this up. Should be around three hours of live BOC within five days.

We tried to get to Pitchfork in time to see Circulatory System, but couldn't do it. No one can predict traffic.
I liked Tune-Yards cuz they sounded like they were really having fun on stage and contagious about it. We sat between 2 stages, so they would alternate bands every hour or so.
Danny Brown wasn't horrible, but wasn't great either. Way too many shouts of "Make some fuckin' Noise!".
St. Vincent was much better than that, but not as good as I hoped. Some cool guitar moments though.
Then it got to be time for Neutral Milk Hotel and I guess it was late enough (8:30pm) so they shut off the big screens... which meant that we couldn't see shit for NMH. We heard all their best ones and left when there was probably a couple to go.
Overall, still a very fun time (bought some vinyl while there, such as a Blowfly album), but bands should know that the good set to play at Pitchfork is 2nd to last, not last, so the fans can still see you on the big screen!

Glad you got to see tUnE-yArDs! I saw that she's coming to the Riv in the fall!

The Rock 'N' Blues Fest tour will still happen as scheduled in the USA. With the recent death of the headliner Johnny Winter, the concerts will now be a celebration of Johnny's music.

The line up:

Edgar Winter Band
Vanilla Fudge
Peter Rivera (Rare Earth drummer 1969-1975)
Kim Simmonds (Savoy Brown)

RIP Johnny.

saw Motley Crue and Alice Cooper last night,
Alice put on a very solid musically tight set full of props and the usuall antics. He only did 13 songs and the last three ran into each other (not entire song). Alice is one of my top favorites.
Crue was good, Vince sounded better than he did when I saw them in 2012, he was still gasping for air quite a bit. Mick Mars was right on, he seemed to be heavilly featured on this tour, (i'm guessing it will be his last ever) he even had an extended guitar solo spot. Tommy did not do a drum solo, apparently the ceiling of the venue was not strong enought to support his drum solo rig. Nikki told a long story in the middle of the set, would have preffered to hear another song, he did do this cool flamethrower thing.
Scored tickets for $20 had a pretty good time.
My wife was going with 7 other girls, and one of the girls backed out so i went with 7 girls.

Saw Alice in Chains last night with Monster Truck and the Pack A.D. opening. The former two bands were killer, the latter not so much.

Saw The Dean Ween Group at Boulevard Fest in Chicago on Saturday. Got fairly close. Close enough to be next to the moshers, but not exactly next to the stage. They opened with a bluesy jam, then went into a shortened version of Echoes with bits of material from The Carpenters thrown in. Fuckin awesome, I hope they release this version. Speakin of which I'd take a live album from DWG or Moistboyz!
Image

Image

Guy brought out this huge mask that I'm guessing someone gave to him, because after he was done messing with it, he threw it out into the audience. Good prop.
Image

Image

It was a DWG show, but in most ways, it might have been a Moistboyz show. Guy was his usual insane self, flippin off the crowd or just inciting insanity at any opportunity. There was more than a bit of moshing going on and for a City-Fest-type show, it was a fuckin blast!
Image

Image

Image

Image
Great freaky vox on Nightcrawler, great solos all night, wish it coulda been longer, but only an hour fifteen. That's how city-fests go.
The highlight of the night was, of course, a Ween tune, Transdermal Celebration, though their versions of Gabrielle and The Rift were awesome too. Had me singing The Rift on the walk back to a friend's house a 10 minute walk away. They had a big ole party that night. Awesome time.

Next stop, Indianapolis, this Saturday, Warmfest! Only going for 1 day, but that's plenty. Should be a great holiday weekend!

Wow - very surprised by your polar review from mine of the DWG show. I'd give it a C-. Dean's guitar playing was awesome and there were moments where the band killed it but I felt the songwriting was completely absent and the singer didn't demonstrate any real charisma or melodic gift. It made me want to see the upcoming Freeman show even more. I've since listened to some more Moistboyz and see that DWG is clearly more MB than Ween but man, only 3 Ween tunes in the set and 2 of those being b-sides was a big downer. I saw Aaron's 1st setlist with Freeman and was thrilled to see way more Ween in there (not to mention, I really dig his new release - which I didn't think would be that great).

Different strokes, I guess - right, Arkay? :wink:
