Don't you like music with your supper?

Taj Mahal at the Egyptian Theatre --7/10.

He wasn't as mind blowing as I expected.  Maybe it's just because I was feeling a little sick.  Still, a great guitarist, and a very fun evening.  I respect his diversity of musical influences.  Highlight of the show: a traditional African-influenced interpretation of Stagger Lee.... or him pelvic thrusting while taking a solo and exclaiming, "Who's your daddy!?  Who's your daddy now!?"

It's already been a while, but I forgot to mention... I was on a small concert of Púčik, which is a folklore group from Brno, namely of its musical part, playing traditional South-Moravian music with cymbalo and fiddle and other instruments. But it's a band of very young people, I guess most of them younger than me, and it was very lively and... well, definitely NOT dead conserved folklore, this was living music. I hope you know what I mean. A great experience.

Thursday 27th, celebration of the first CD of the new Brno band Poletíme? (the question mark is part of the name).

I'm afraid most of it is lost with language, though. But you can always get a glimpse.
(Actually, their fiddle player plays in Púčik as well. :))

RESURRECTION.


Michael Franti -- 8/10.  This guy put on a great show, really pumped up the crowd on a Tuesday night..  I really dig his vibe and his music and his message.  He's like Curtis Mayfield meets Peter Tosh.

Probably a Blondie concert in San Francisco, during their No Exit tour a few years back.

More than a bit late...

AC/DC - 7/10
Of course it was AC fucking DC and of course it was Angus Young! But something was missing. There just wasn't that special vibe in the air that you expect from a good gig. I blame the stadium. Stadium concerts tend to be that way.

For The Imperium - 9/10
I didn't know shit about this band before a friend mine took me their gig. The place was small, and there were maybe 20 some people that really were listening to them (i.e. were standing in front of the stage) but God there was energy in that place. From the beat one the audience was moshing like hell; I can tell you that my neck hurt 2 or 3  days afterwards. The music itself was nothing special (as I noticed the day after when I listened to their CD I had bought), hi-tech/no-message kinda prog metal with screamed verses and sung choruses, but as an experience the gig was awesome.

Absoluuttinen nollapiste - 9/10
Only a handful of people were present which was a pity and a surprise but I don't think it affected the gig that much; they're not very audience involving band and the event was somehow very intimite. The set list did not include all of my biggest personal favorites but was surprisingly audience friendly and wide-ranging in age. The played both their newest single and a fan favorite from their first album. Some of the songs were rearranged but mostly successfully. Interesting were also a couple of lines of new lyrics in some songs - more and less improvised, the climax being Liimatta's intimate tribute his late mother. Their playing was, I'd say, perfect and there was evident joy in their performing. I just can't accept that these dudes are 30-35 years of age now; on the stage they give an impression of a bunch of college students. And that is a compliment!

Yesterday I was on a concert of Pacifik, one of my favourite Czech bands, in a pub where they seem to play regularly (I remember hearing about it some time ago). Therefore, it was something between a concert and friendly campfire-singing without the campfire, or something like that. Most of the audience seemed to be their friends, they had at least two intermissions to drink their beer and, at the same time, played for much longer than usual on normal concerts. It started at 8 PM, we left at about 10:30 PM and they still seemed to intend to play for much longer. Certainly something I hadn't experienced before.
The last song we heard was this nostalgic song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzNFTAJVQP4 with a background projection of related nostalgic photos, and it was just fantastic (much more fantastic than in the video).

It was the first time I heard them with their new member, after Pepa Blažejovský died... The new member is much younger than the rest of them, at least a generation younger, but he seems to fit in well, and they're still good in their own way. However, something was missing... something intangible, something I couldn't lay my finger on, but it was that certain something that made them so special to me originally, which I didn't realise until now. Now, thinking back, I guess it's because Blažejovský, as I've read, had rock-and-roll background, while the new member comes from a prolific folk music family. I suppose it has something to do with that.

I went to a Pirates game a few weeks back, at the end of which was a concert by the Steve Miller Band. They were pretty good, and they get extra props for playing an hour-plus in the middle of pouring rain.

I worked the load in load out for Charlie Daniels Band, just before I left for Montana.
i met charlie Danial's long before he made it when he was semi big. his bus was pulled over by the red pig bar-b-q down from where i stay,  i peeked - in and he said howdy. instantly, i knew i was in the presants of tue greatness.

also, found mice elf back 20 years in a recording session w/ taj down in kingsnake studios in Sanford, Fla. after the session was over he loosened up an asked me to open up at a comunity collage over in Daytona beach that night. it was sweet to come back under the new circumstances to a full auditorium of blues enthusiasts
