Seether & Godsmack at Target Center

Godsmak on stage at Target Center, Minneapolis.

A few months ago I got the email.  I barely had the message relayed when I had my answer back.  "Yes, buy them!" she said.   Less than two weeks later I opened the envelope and the tickets were in my hand.  Godsmack and Seether at Target Center in Minneapolis.  We were going!  Then after a long wait of several months the show was over with nothing left but to write the review. 

Tantric & Soil at Every Buddy's Bar & Grill

Just a short post.  More or less a placeholder for a show we have attended and a place for me to drop the links to the videos I shot that night.   Soil and Tantric on stage at Every Buddy's with warmup provided by the band Picard.

I really wanted to catch Picard.  After kicking in for their Kickstarter, I had never seen the band perform live.  Late though.  Always late.  I got there just as they announced their last song.  That is the video attached here.  I like the sound.  Someday I need to catch their full show.

Black River Revue at Every Buddys

A while back a guy with the unlikely Facebook name of Joseph Mountain wrote to me and suggested I should check out his band.   Though years sometimes, and in this case did, go by before the stars aligned and I got to see them, I am glad I eventually did. The summer draws to a close and we got a chance to enjoy those last days of warm weather while the wintertime music scene is just spooling up.  Black River Review was playing at Every Buddy's Bar and Grill and it was a great night to be out on the town!

Gillian Welch at The State Theatre

 

Earlier this week my friend The Lawyer asked me if I would be interested at all in going to a Gillian Welch concert with he and his wife.  Free concert?  Good seats?  Yeah sure, I was interested.  The name was familiar to me.  I know that part of it is we sit around The Lawyer's front yard quite a lot quaffing wine and admiring our joint garden.  While there he pipes music though the speakers he had wired a couple of years back.  Often times I think Gillian is in the mix he plays.  But I felt like I knew the name outside of that.  Sunday night, State Theater?  Sign us up!

If I'd written all the truth I knew for the past ten years, about 600 people - including me - would be rotting in prison cells from Rio to Seattle today. Absolute truth is a very rare and dangerous commodity in the context of professional journalism.
