Emily Portman @ end of this month. Haven't fully decided to go yet. It'll be my first gig this year, as I sort of swore off them. I do however like the idea of seeing an act  I'm less familiar with.

Any of you come across Houndstooth before?  

"One minute they might strike you as a kraut-rock band with a country lead guitar player and the next more like a mournful surf quartet."

I love 'em...and am very excited to have booked tickets to see 'em in Manchester in September.  For £7.70 a ticket.  It must be 1990...

Actually looking at a full timetable of upcoming gigs! This is a rare thing these days.

Taking the lad to Beacon Festival next Friday so he can see his current favourite band, Rusty Shackle. Then off to Basingstoke to see Suzanne Vega for the first time in decades.  

The one I'm most looking forward to though is The August List in the Unicorn in Abingdon, partly because I can walk to the venue and partly because they're fab.

Then it's Maverick Festival the weekend after that. (Line the beers up, Skirky!) Time flies doesn't it?

Cheers

Nick

In retrospect, does he now regret pushing Sandy in the solo direction and away from working with bands, like Fotheringay, given the patchiness of her solo albums - moments of brilliance, but padded sometimes with less good material, and as time went on, rather over produced?

And back on topic, before the Punch Brothers and Cropredy, we have tickets for one of Brass Monkey's farewell gigs, at Nettlebed.  

I am a little miffed that I will have to miss the Mischa Macpherson trio's concert there a couple of weeks later as we shall be on holiday.  Though since we are off to Cornwall I'm really hoping that we'll be able to catch the Fisherman's Friends in their natural habitat in Port Isaac.

I've been looking for an opportunity to see her again after really enjoying her Cropredy set. There aren't any gigs on her current list that I could comfortably get to, but we live in hope.

My next concert is on 2nd July, which is Justin Hayward at Porthcawl. Never seen him solo before but if his last solo CD and the performance at the recent Moody Blues gig are anything to go by, I can't wait

And does he regret undervaluing pretty much everyone in Fairport except Sandy & Richard and therefore ultimately being something of a divisive influence?

It was a magical night.  Before he played the first song, he announced that he had just been released from hospital for pneumonia, and warned us that he was not 100% recovered but didn't want to disappoint us.  It was mesmerizing to watch and listen to him.  Mrs. J from A tells me it was the first time she had ever heard "melody" and recognized song structure emanating from the drummer.  I couldn't agree more.  If you ever have an opportunity to see this man perform, grab it.

Just got front row tickets for Ronnie Spector at the Liverpool Philharmonic.  ;D

I'm taking my mom.
Her theory for me being so obsessed with music is that when she was pregnant with me, she used to sing 'Be My Baby' into a hair brush when it came on the radio, as it was in the charts at the time.(Be my baby....get it ? Not that I had much choice at that point.)
I'll go for that...I've always loved the Ronettes and that song in particular.

Then it's not on vinyl...as specified.....naughty pirate people. But you can get Embryo on the US Works comp on vinyl or CD, or the recent CD A Breath Of Fresh Air: A Harvest Records Anthology, which only has three tracks in common with the original. Or all of them. Like me.

Just booked tickets for "OUTLAW: Celebrating the Music of Waylon Jennings" on July 6 at ACL-Live in Austin.

Performers include Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Toby Keith, Eric Church, Alison Krauss, Kacey Musgraves, Ryan Bingham, Sturgill Simpson, Jamey Johnson, Lee Ann Womack, Robert Earl Keen, Chris Stapleton, Shooter Jennings, Jessi Colter, and Billy Joe Shaver.

Also booked the Queen of Country Music, Loretta Lynn, later this fall at the same venue.

I admit I have only passing familiarity with some of these artists, as country music has never been my thang.  However, I am increasingly burdened by awareness of mortality and just can no longer forego these opportunities to be in the presence of these folks while they're still out there.

Ian McLagan, B.B. King, Chris Squire, John Entwistle, and on and on.  Not to mention Johnny Winter, Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings himself, who I never made an effort to see when they were out there on the road.

In a statement, the band said: "Dave Cousins has been rather seriously unwell. He was taken in to QEQM Hospital in Margate on June 16 after choking on a cup of tea outside his house. This caused him to lose consciousness and smash his head on the pavement. He was discharged after this on June 19. Unfortunately this accident dislodged a kidney stone. On June 23, he was admitted to K&CH Hospital. He was operated on the next day under general anaesthetic and discharged on June 26.
"He is recovering well, but is not yet fit enough to take the stresses and strains of a band tour. However, a rumour in the US that Dave has prostate cancer is absolutely not true. He has had two full biopsies as part of other medical checks in the last five years and is totally free of prostate cancer.
"We are all disappointed not to be able to see the electric band again in July/August. However, we know all Strawbs fans will understand that this decision is the right one to make sure that Dave is able to recuperate fully."

However, I am not tempted (or financially able  :o ) to travel to Pyongyang to see Laibach play, er, "arrangements" of North Korean top tunes and excerpts from "The Sound of Music" - the current Kim's father's favourite film apparently.

Following these gigs, I imagine Kim will learn to play every instrument in the world and issue a CD of his "oeuvre" before Christmas. It will, of  course, go straight to #1 - with a bullet - which is what anyone who doesn't buy it will probably get.  ;)

NOT going to see Don Henley tonight at ACL-Live, filming an upcoming episode of Austin City Limits.

I signed up for free passes, but did not win the ensuing lottery.  After living in Austin for most of my 51 years, I've managed to attend only a couple of ACL tapings, and only in the last couple of years.  I even attended the University of Texas, where the show was filmed from 1976 through 2010, for six years in the 1980s without scoring a ticket.  Regrets, I've had a few...

Very jealous.  I'm glad they are doing a UK and Canadian tour, though I'd love to see them do another swing though the US.  I saw them back last September in Philadelphia and they were amazing.  It was the third time seeing them.  I'd see them twice back during the double trio period in 1995/1996, and as amazing as they were back then, twice as amazing this time around.  

After pretty much any show I attend, I pretty much always think the same thing, "This was the best concert I'd ever seen."  Then the next show I see becomes the most amazing show.  But the show back last year I think will stand up as one of the best, if not the best concert I'd ever attended.

3 drummers drumming, 4 pipers piping? Corvus Corax! Not planning to see them again for some time (unless they come to the UK).

So, it's the Crims (again) next in Brum, then - provided the tickets haven't all been sold - Jude at the Convent in Woodchester on 3rd Oct - must get on & order my ticket; followed by Wishbone Ash in Worcester 23/10 and Kraftwerk in Hamburg (midnight 3D show) at the end of November.

Peter Cetera, Thursday at the historic Majestic Theater in downtown San Antonio, Texas.

I have skipped numerous opportunities to see Chicago since Mr. Cetera left.  I just can't get behind the idea of paying money to hear a sound-alike replacement, unless his name is Jon Davison and the band is Yes, or Lawrence Gowan and Styx, or...

Andie,
several reasons:
1. I presumed that all who would wish to know of the global extravaganza that is the Hurst Festival (2015) would have been fully aux fait for months, since the publication of events on the website and handy pocket-sized 'programme';
2. I have been on vacation, so had it 'tucked away' in the social diary until I got back and only posted it then;
3. I didn't want it selling out before I had secured my tickets with all those townie types;
4. I wouldn't wish the seating of the Holy Trinity church on my enemies;
5. I'm beyond reprehensible....Please forgive! :-[

I'm really looking forward to this one!  I skipped Dire Straits entirely and Mr. Knopfler hasn't come down to Texas on his own in years.

I did have the pleasure of watching him play second guitar to Eric Clapton back in 1988.  They closed the show at the Starplex Amphitheater in Dallas with "Money For Nothing!"

Mr. Knopfler would be perfect for Cropredy.

Tons of new stuff, with a glance back at what MK called "archaeology":

Sultans of Swing
Romeo and Juliet
An epic Telegraph Road, and
So Far Away from You for the encore.

Unbelievable show, with shout outs to Manchester's finest on uilleann pipes, Irish flute, tin whistle, guitar, mandocello, and who knows what else, and John McCusker, my new favorite fiddler.

Graham Parker and the Rumour at The Assembly, Leamington on Thursday. Last chance to catch GP with the Rumour - what was originally announced as a short UK tour to promote the new album seems to have become a farewell tour, the London show on Saturday will be their last ever apparently. I really hoped they'd keep it going for a little longer, the gigs I've seen since they regrouped have been as good as any I saw them play first time around and the two albums haven't been too shabby either.

I'm really intrigued to know what the new band is like.  I was very surprised to note that there is no Allen involvement at all.  I sort of assumed Orlando would take the band over.

Tickets, hotel and train booked to see Moving Hearts with the baby brother at the old fruitmarket at celtic connections in january, combining that with a game at paradise on the saturday afternoon and a gig, possibly peatbog fairies, or a pub crawl, or both on the saturday night and train home on sunday.
Pound for pound its more than i've ever paid for a single gig before but i reckon that its the only chance i'll ever have to see the mighty Moving Hearts, on the british mainland at least.

The Academy car park just off Oxford Road is only £2.00 from 4.00pm until midnight, it's a bit of a hike to the Albert Hall though.

Since the old BBC car park closed we've used the University's multi-story in Charles Street, which is £5.00 for between 3 and 6 hours http://www.estates.manchester.ac.uk/services/operationalservices/carparking/carparks/

Thanks for those...I'll check 'em out...I'm going to be getting there circa 2:30pm on Sat though and staying til, well, the end of the gig plus 30 mins or so....that was what was so good about the BBC one - had really cheap weekend all day parking.

I nearly killed myself laughing when Ritchie described his new singer as "a cross between RJD and Freddie Mercury".  I'd pay good money to see that.  Well, I wouldn't, but...

Only time I ever saw Rainbow was in some leisure centre in London somewhere.  It was the Joe Lynne Turner lineup, and they were dreadful.  Ritchie defines contrariness in Rock'n'Roll.

Talkawhilers will well know that Helen and The Neighbourhood Dogs will be reason enough to attend this.

If you're unaware of Vienna Ditto though; imagine a boy-girl duo in which he is a cross between Vince Clarke and Angus Young and she is fulfilling the role of torch song singer in a James Bond soundtrack. Quite bonkers and quite magnificent.

Have a great gig!

Suspect we won't make the rearranged date as it coincides with my eldest daughter's birthday - which will be a significant one.

This bunch is coming to Donegal in January, and are described in the local theatre's blurb as a bunch of Scottish singer/songwriters... Even stranger to call one person that.

Faux Lynyrd Skynyrd tonight at the Cedar Park Center, north of Austin, Texas.

Two original members (Gary Rossington and Rickey Medlocke) and one legitimate replacement (Johnny Van Zant) backed by a raft of session guys.

Like the Beach Boys, there are as many willing and able former members excluded from the current version of Lynyrd Skynyrd as included.  Oh well.  I got to see their 1987-1988 tour, with the very much alive Ed King on guitar and Artimus Pyle on drums, joined by the late Allen Collins (who spoke from a wheelchair), bassist Leon Wilkeson and pianist Billy Powell.  Fly high, Free Birds.

Deke left in 2004. He had a lot of other projects on the go at the time and felt he couldn't find the time for Man as well, although he's since admitted that, in hindsight, it was probably the wrong decision. The current line-up (Martin Ace, Phil Ryan, Josh Ace, James Beck and Rene Robrahn) have  a very low profile in the UK these days - a spate of sackings instigated by Martin Ace a few years back alienated a good portion of the already dwindling fanbase - me included - and their last tour here had appalling attendances - only 13 bothered to turn up for the Wrexham gig I seem to remember.

Deke has only released four solo albums (not counting one of demos and one of radio sessions) so finding the one shouldn't be too difficult. Probably Iceberg (1973) or Kamikaze (1974) which were both reissued by Esoteric last year. After that there was Before Your Very Eyes (1981) and more recently Freedom and Chains (2005).

Kamikaze rings a vague bell, though as it was 1983 when I lived on this particular corridor it could have been Before Your Very Eyes. I think I'd recognise the sleeve so I will have a look online.

Too right.  I didn’t need much persuading.  The Pretty Things were superb.  They mostly played r&b, along with several tracks from S.F. Sorrow and a terrific blues segment.  The old stagers were on top form and they’ve acquired a very impressive young drummer since I last saw them.  Only a couple of numbers from their recent cd, which is a rather tasty throwback to their psychedelic days (covers of tracks by The Byrds and The Seeds).  Very decent support from Du Bellows, a female-fronted, blues-rock band.

He has moved politically somewhat to the right. Not sure what his Dad would make of it all. Still love those early records though.

The recently reformed Lush, at the Roundhouse London on 7th May...Hmm !...I'm not sure booking to see a band based on the merits of a record I enjoyed ("Gala") 25 years ago is actually a very wise move !... :-\

Yes, I know where you are coming from. The Brighton tickets are pretty much on a par with anything else at the Brighton Centre but I am anticipating something visually spectacular or at least a technical tour de force to justify it. I suspect it will be closer to a modern day West End  musical theatre experience than a gig and it is certainly less expensive than most London theatre tickets (not that I am defending the latter).

Just booked - James Taylor and His All-Star Band at the "theater" at the Frank Erwin Center (basically, they drape off about 2/3ds of the Erwin Center, which is a basketball arena, in an attempt to render it "intimate").

I looked at the All-Stars on his website, and the only names I recognize are "Blue" Lou Marini (Blues Brothers) on sax and the legendary Steve Gadd on drums.  Knowing JT, I presume the All-Stars are the best session musicians in L.A.

I'm totally stoked about this one.  This is one day after Gordon Lightfoot at ACL-Live.  I never get tired of my '60s/'70s singer/songwriters (hello Paul Simon, Arlo Guthrie and Randy Newman)!  Memo to Yusuf - please come to Austin!

Just announced:  Steve Miller Band at the new "Skyline Theater" at the destined-to-be-historic Long Center for the Performing Arts south of downtown Austin, Texas.  This is a new concept involving an outdoor stage on the expansive lawn with the burgeoning Austin skyline as the backdrop.  They're selling VIP seats on the Long Center's terraces, overlooking the lawn and the skyline, with access to indoor bars and bathrooms (hallelujah).  I'm all over this...

This is a make-up date for me, since I missed his performance at the "A Day in the Garden" event back in the summer of 1998 at Max Yasgur's farm, because I was enjoying a leisurely breakfast at my nearby B&B with my then-new and still wife.

I am thrilled that I got see one of Brian's last shows with AC/DC in Houston earlier this year.  Having said that, I would not have hesitated to attend this bizarre convergence of AC/DC/G'nR, if only for the sheer novelty.

Wednesday: Radio 2 Folk Awards - Royal Albert Hall, London
Thursday: All Things Must Pass - Shoreham (excellent 10 piece band who play the music of George Harrison but not a tribute band as such, i.e. they play it in their own style and do not dry to imitate George or replicate the records)
Friday - Sunday - Big Session Festival - Buxton
Wednesday - The Long Ryders - Brighton

Might I commend Marty O'Reilly and The Old Soul Orchestra to the parish? I've seen him over the last three years* on his annual visits to the UK and he just keeps getting better and better. His incendiary version of Smokestack Lightning at The Norwich Arts Centre is easily findable on the YouTube, and I will be introducing him at St. Peter's by The Waterfront in the heart of swinging down town Ipswich on Friday June the 10th.

If you can't make it there, he and the band will be around the country for the next week or so after that in Stroud, Liverpool, Manchester, London, Witney, Twyford, Portsmouth, and the bucolic NIMBYness that is Dedham in leafy Suffolk on Sunday the 19th for an all-dayer at The Swan.

Busy end to the week, Chris Wood at Cogges Farm Museum in Witney Friday


Wasn't that a sublime gig?!

The lack of raised stage was a small niggle that I'm sure the organisers can easily remedy, but that was a truly lovely concert in a really good venue. The dove on backing vocals was a nice touch.

Cheers

Yes, a really unusual and atmospheric setting that really added to the evening. Duotone as support was really good and I loved the cello being played with Chris on the two numbers. Hope more gigs like this are planned. Now for Wizz Jones at the Tiddy Hall, just down the road

You won't regret it. I am considering Dorking, though I am a bit nervous of folk clubs. They are not an environment that I feel comfortable in for some reason. They are too inclusive.  :-[

Might I commend Marty O'Reilly and The Old Soul Orchestra to the parish? I've seen him over the last three years* on his annual visits to the UK and he just keeps getting better and better. His incendiary version of Smokestack Lightning at The Norwich Arts Centre is easily findable on the YouTube, and I will be introducing him at St. Peter's by The Waterfront in the heart of swinging down town Ipswich on Friday June the 10th.

If you can't make it there, he and the band will be around the country for the next week or so after that in Stroud, Liverpool, Manchester, London, Witney, Twyford, Portsmouth, and the bucolic NIMBYness that is Dedham in leafy Suffolk on Sunday the 19th for an all-dayer at The Swan.  



*I am reminded that I first stage-mangled the-then trio at Maverick in 2014 http://skirky.blogspot.fr/2014/07/not-my-circus-not-my-monkeys.html

Something of a contrast over the next week or so.

Tomorrow is our annual trip to Glyndebourne. This is Caroline's reward for camping at Cropredy so she can dress up and I get the opportunity to impersonate a waiter. Then on Thursday it's off to Cecil Sharp House for Simpson Cutting Kerr, followed by an unexpected outing next Sunday to Wembley for Coldplay. The latter was only arranged this evening - no idea what to expect but at that price it had better be good. The nice thing is we are going with my brother-in-law and his wife who, along with my nieces, will be making their first trip to Cropredy this year.

An all-American bill tomorrow night:

Boston with Dennis DeYoung and the Music of Styx, at the new Skyline Theater (the front lawn of the Long Center for the Performing Arts), across Lady Bird Lake from beautiful downtown Austin, Texas.

I last saw Boston on October 20, 1987, when they were already "Tom Scholz's Tribute to Boston, feat. Brad Delp."  Now it's Tom Scholz's Tribute to Boston, stop.  Still excited, though, to revisit my youth yet again.  He found a Delp sound-alike who reportedly has a lot of range.

BTW, my office sits across the lake from the venue, so I can clearly see that they have not even begun to erect the outdoor stage.  I guess they will be inflating a bouncy house, because I don't see how else they can get this ready in time...

I hope you recover OK. We have abandoned all gigs until Faustus play the Oval Tavern in Croydon in October. My wife is making very slow recovery from Pseudomonas infection in her leg (hospitalised for almost 3 weeks in April) so needs to keep leg elevated as much as possible.

It's attached to a riverside restaurant development  called the Left Bank, funded by Albert Heijn, who was grandson of the founder of the Dutch Albert Heijn supermarkets. He was responsible for a number of different enterprises in Herefordshire & lived here until his death in 2011. Alas, once Heijn died, ownership passed to others less competent at managing the main building is currently only partially utilised.

It's Ramblin' Man Fair  in Kent this weekend for the Stag weekend I've been organising. It's primarily a 'rock' fest (Whitesnake, Saxon, Thin Lizzy etc..) but also has a Prog stage (Procol Harum, Family, Zombies etc) & a Country (Hayseed Dixie etc) & Blues Stage - and a beer festival on site!  'The Stag demographic ranges form 34 to over 70 so we have a few tastes covered..... Unfortunately 80s Swedish Hair-Metal band Europe are on the bill but I will be avoiding 'The Final Countdown' like the plague...

Let's hope the sun shines and I manage to look after the groom (& myself!)

To me their legacy is the oceans of archived  live stuff that just keeps on coming. Most people have to cherry- pick from this, but there's undoubtedly some very fine music there.
 
There's a new book just out about Workingman's Dead, btw.  If for instance the Band's self titled album is worth banging on about, I think this LP is as well.

Title: Re: Upcoming gigs
Post by: John From Austin on August 26, 2016, 06:30:00 PM
Lyle Lovett was great, as usual.  He brought his Large Band, with four horns and a borrowed gospel chorus added to his core band (including the legendary Russ Kunkel, the go-to drummer for James Taylor, Jackson Browne, and most of the other L.A.-based stars of the 1970s).

He didn't play many "hits."  In addition to several gospel songs, he played a pair of gorgeous Guy Clark covers and the traditional "I'll Fly Away," all in tribute to the late Mr. Clark.  Lyle is also a storyteller, prompting some a**hole in the gallery to shout "Play a song!"

He's touring the U.S. in the fall with Robert Earl Keen, which I would love to see.  All our friends in the U.K. and elsewhere should make the effort to see my fellow Texan if he crosses the pond in 2017.

Next up, my texting buddy Donovan in September!

Sunday is not bad either.

Glad to see they have moved the real ale tent this year, it is much more central. Last year it was the opposite end of the site from the main stage, I reckon about a mile.

No chairs, food or drink to be taken in though.

Not a gig as such, but Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart in No Man's Land, at the Cardiff New Theatre.

Front row seats - been looking forward to this for ages!  :D From the website:

Following their hit run on Broadway, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart return to the UK stage in Sean Mathias' acclaimed production of No Man's Land, one of the most brilliantly entertaining plays by Nobel Prize laureate Harold Pinter.

One summer's evening, two ageing writers, Hirst and Spooner, meet in a Hampstead pub and continue their drinking into the night at Hirst's stately house nearby.  As the pair become increasingly inebriated, and their stories increasingly unbelievable, the lively conversation soon turns into a revealing power game, further complicated by the return home of two sinister younger men.

Don't miss this rare treat of two master actors in Pinter's comic masterpiece.

One summer's evening, two ageing writers, Hirst and Spooner, meet in a Hampstead pub and continue their drinking into the night at Hirst's stately house nearby.  As the pair become increasingly inebriated, and their stories increasingly unbelievable, the lively conversation soon turns into a revealing power game, further complicated by the return home of two sinister younger men.

Don't miss this rare treat of two master actors in Pinter's comic masterpiece.



Very Envious.  I'm a Pinter nut & this is one of his best I reckon.

Cheers,

Slippy

It was excellent. I'm not sure I understood exactly what it was about, but seeing the two men at work was something else. Ian McKellen in particular has perfect timing and has a range of 1000s of expressions.

Likewise. Do I need to do any revision before the gig? Will there be a test at the end?

24th September at the West End Centre. London’s Knifeworld are curating and headlining our very first Prog All-Dayer.  

Knifeworld, who are led by Kavus Torabi, are renowned for producing music that explodes with ideas and includes intricate time signatures and warm pop melodies. The band include members of Monsoon Bassoon, The Cardiacs, Gong, Chrome Hoof, Sidi Bou Said and more. The line-up includes: William D Drake (ex Cardiacs), Prescott, Eschar, Barringtone and Knifeworld.

I have absolutely no knowledge of any of the bands output, but as its only a 10minute walk and £14. ;D

The Blue Anchor camp site in Somerset is in a beautiful setting and Watchet just down the road has a good music scene with live music on Friday and Saturday. Plus the stop for the steam train is near the site. It's where I'd go if I had a long weekend!

Peter Yarrow (of Peter, Paul & Mary) at the One World Theater on Monday night.  Tickets are plentiful, sadly.  Come on Austin, how many more chances do you think you will get to see Peter or Paul?  I remember singing Puff the Magic Dragon in elementary school.

Ray LaMontagne at Bass Concert Hall next Thursday.  There are about ten tickets left and I might snag one of them.  I missed his entire set when he opened for Levon Helm a few years back.  Afterward I purchased Ray's then-current album, which just blew me away.  Methinks I should do this.

Nice to meet you, Annie, however briefly & I'm sorry to have missed you in the evening. I thoroughly enjoyed the walk despite the rain & the gig was ace. Well done on your mileage, I see JJ's raised over £5, 600. It was a pity I couldn't have done more. Glad you liked the beer, I'm lucky to have The Barrels as my local.  :)

Disaster struck again - we set out at 4pm to drive the 17 miles from Croydon to Kings Place (cannot use public transport due to my wife's health problems) and after 1 hour and 45 minutes we had travelled no more than 10 miles, and had been in stationery traffic for about 20 minutes! So we gave up and turned back. Did anyone else go?

I've bitten the bullet and booked for Steve Hackett next April - just as well, as tickets are obviously going pretty fast too.  I'm not used to booking 6 months ahead for gigs though!  Now I just have to make sure I don't end up on a trip somewhere at that point!

The Flemish Folk Caravan at Cecil Sharp House on Wednesday.  I enjoyed the Trio Dhoore at Sidmouth, but the other acts will be a voyage of discovery.  A free concert, if anyone is feeling adventurous.


Well, that was fun.  Part of a promotional push for Flemish folk music.  Three bands, all very young, all extremely talented, and all fronted by a speaker with flawless English.  My favourites were Trio Dhoore (three brothers; guitar, accordion, and hurdy-gurdy; a little bit reminiscent of Andy Cutting) and WOR, who play updated versions of historic dance tunes.  They used an unusual mix of instruments, including a shruti box, a psaltery, a baritone sax, and bagpipes that looked identical to those in Bruegel’s paintings.  They sounded a little bit like Blowzabella.  Plenty of free Belgian beer and crisps, which helped things along very nicely.  I daresay they could have quadrupled their audience if they had advertised that in advance…

Why deny the obvious, child?

Monday, Anderson, Rabin and Wakeman at ACL Live. I purchased a photo op there, as well. Afterward, I'll have two group photos comprising the majority of Yes:  Anderson, Squire, Howe, Wakeman, White, Downes and Rabin. Still need Bruford and Kaye, but not holding out hope.

At the Black Sabbath sound check, Adam Wakeman mentioned that he and his father are criss-crossing Texas at the same time. Per Adam, they negotiated a dinner meeting in San Antonio on Saturday, when Black Sabbath are playing the AT&T Center while Anderson, Rabin and Wakeman are playing the Majestic Theater.

My second visit and I have loved it both times. The food is gorgeous. The service is excellent and friendly and the prices are reasonable for London (though the wine is a bit pricey). Great atmosphere too. Surprised to hear about the mixed reports. We ate early because we had to walk back to the Empire but by the time we left at about 7.30 it was heaving so it is certainly popular.

Ritchie Blackmore's (and whatever the line up of unknowns will be) Rainbow.
The first band I went to see live (although it was at Monsters Of Rock, so there were six other bands on first).
He'll be playing Rainbow and Deep Purple songs, so I'll get to relive my teenage years one more time.


I presume the odds approach zero that he will bring this consortium to the States.


He says its just a one off gig, but who knows..


One off, my arse...there's money in them hills...  :)

Dave Gilmour is no 1, Greg Lake was no 2 which is why Billy Joel has moved up. Prince was no 3, so Tears for Fears move to that slot. And I see my No 5 (Paul Weller) in March!

Wonderful band, well worth checking out, their self-titled album would be a good place to start, probably their best to date. This was their fourth visit over here from Montreal, once as support for The Black Angels and three times as headliners. Quite an encouraging turn-out considering they have almost zero profile in the UK and previous tours have been pretty sparsely attended - last couple of times in Manchester have seen 40-50, last night was at least three times that, so word must be getting around. They're hoping to be back here in May for a more extensive tour, this trip being just a free show in London and last night in Manchester.

Really?  Struggling to stay upright in an UTI way?  I've not heard anybody say that before.  I think the guy's a genius, but I've never seen him live.  Have stood next to him at a gig, mind...Dr Strangely Strange at the Jazz Cafe.  Genesis P Orridge was standing behind me.  I was on crutches.  A weird evening, that one...but a great one!

Unfortunately they've become something of a part-time operation in recent years. They took a hiatus in 2011 and I don't think anyone really expected to see them back together, but over the last few years they seem to have settled into playing a gig or two a year and doing the occasional recording.

Couldn’t agree more.  When I saw them last year, they went out of their way to keep everyone happy.  Started out with some R & B, then a few numbers from S.F.

I missed The Joshua Tree tour in 1987/1988 because U2 had gotten so big I couldn't get a ticket for love or money.  I will never forget seeing them with Romeo Void in 1981 at the Hollywood Palladium, on the October tour.  There was definitely a lot of buzz around them already, but nobody knew how huge they would become.

One UK show? Seriously?

I saw them twice (on different tours) 20 - 25 years ago, both times at the old Wembley Stadium and they were terrific shows. I know they split opinion. Bono is a berk but he is also a great front man for a rock band. In fact, being a berk seems to be a major qualification for the job; Jim Morrison, Mick Jagger, Axl Rose, Ozzy Osbourne, Bryan Ferry. The list goes on and on.  ;D

I'd love to see this tour but I can't quite be bothered however if it is going to be such a scramble to get tickets and so difficult to get to.  :(

Fairport at Canterbury definitely a good option but it might be nice to find something else while I'm there - I have to get my live music fix before going back to the island.  In terms of the first question, I think I'm open to anything really - local folky would be good but definitely open to suggestions or new ideas.

I'm very excited to see him for the first (and presumably only) time. He's accompanied on this tour by interim Allman Brothers guitarist Jimmy Herring, which seems an odd intersection of country/blues and jazz, but what do I know?

Plenty of tickets left - I often drive to Pontardawe or Bristol for gigs - so having John Kirkpatrick and Martin Carthy 100 yards from home - what's not to like?

The Memo Arts Centre is trying really hard to bring good artists to Barry but haven't been getting the audiences these acts deserve - I'm doing my bit to help them, all we need is for folk to come along and enjoy themselves.  Within half a mile there are some good restaurants and a Premier Inn, the railway station isn't too far and there's a mahoosive car park.
Barry is 10 miles southwest of Cardiff, 8 miles from J33 off the M4.

An evening of sublime, emotional, exciting and virtuosic Celtic music.
“This is music with heart, soul and, above all a bullish determination to ignore recognised boundaries.” Chris Jones, BBC

TICKETS: £12.00 full, £10.00 concessions, HYNT cards accepted.


Also at the Memo at the end of March there's the above, "Celtic Guitar Journeys" Tuesday 28 March at 7.30.

I've been trying to get to a gig of his for some time now. Unfortunately, he announces his tours quite late, and everytime a gig cones within reach, i'm slready booked for someone else. Fair enough, I'm not the audience he's trying to reach, and quite possibly that audience books quite late for anything.

Frustrating though. There were two on this tour within reach, but again I'd already booked elsewhere again.

Possibly because Richard is now much more well-known than he used to be?

Yay Chrissie! As I posted here previously, Austin did not turn out for Chrissie's solo show at ACL Live a couple of years ago, and turnout was also light when the Pretenders came back through last Halloween. In spite of this, Chrissie is back here on March 12 opening for Stevie Nicks at the Frank Erwin Center, and will also tape an episode of Austin City Limits on March 13. Hopefully, people will get off their rears and attend.

Tonight, John Fogerty, San Antonio Livestock Show and Rodeo!

Gigspanner are amazing. I had the privilege of seeing them in Bignor church. They were raising money to provide toilets for the church. This fact was rather emphasized due to the fact that the second act was delayed because Roger was still queuing for the single Turdis that was installed by the lytch gate.

Also enjoyed that the ladies of the church had set up their beer stall next to the pew where we were sitting. I didn't need to walk to get a beer. Did have to walk to aforementioned Turdis though.

Ryan Adams at Manchester Apollo in September. Predicatably the Ticketmaster pre-sale turned out to be a farce - at 10.00am the tickets went on sale but there was nothing available, all gone apparently, not sure how that works. Thankfully I'd hedged my bets by registering with O2 Priority as well and managed to get a couple through them. Needless to say StubHub and Viagogo are already awash with them at hugely inflated prices.

£32.50 each, which wasn't as bad as we'd feared, although the additional £6.25 per ticket in fees pushed it pretty close to the maximum we were prepared to go to.

Mick - she hardly ever comes to the UK but does loads of gigs throughout Europe.
 
I love love love her music, she has a beautiful clear voice, you can hear the words plainly (important, I think, when you are putting poetry to music) and plays all sorts of instruments. The Divas used to dance to a couple of her tunes - that's how I "discovered" her about 14 years ago. I have all her albums and can honestly say there isn't a duff song amongst them.

I can't understand someone finding her show dull, but she isn't big on the audience rapport thing - strange really, considering how widely she's travelled and all the cultures she's drawn inspiration from, you'd think she would have a few stories to tell.

If it’s art exhibitions you are after, the one on Australian Impressionists is pretty good.  Details here: http://www.nationalgallery.org.uk/australias-impressionists

If you prefer something different, there is an interesting one on Robots that has just opened at the Science Museum.  There is a touch of ‘Mr Lacey’ about one or two of them.  Taster video here: https://beta.sciencemuseum.org.uk/robots/

The hot ticket is probably Princess Diana & Fashion at Kensington Palace.  You would probably need to book ahead, if you are interested in that: http://www.hrp.org.uk/kensington-palace/visit-us/top-things-to-see-and-do/diana-her-fashion-story/#gs.oVzWA4A

The only music-related exhibition I can think of is Elton John’s collection of historic photographs at Tate Modern.  There’s a brief interview with him about it here: http://www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-modern/exhibition/radical-eye-modernist-photography-sir-elton-john-collection

If you want the theatre, this is the website for the cut-price ticket booth in Leicester Square.  They usually post details of their offers a day or two in advance: http://www.tkts.co.uk/whats-on-sale/

Me too.  I only really got to know them properly when I got together with my other half two and a half years ago.  I've seen them 3 times since then, the last with about 150 others above a bar in the Autumn.  If I was the band I'd be both thrilled and a little bit peeved with how so many people have suddenly come out of the woodwork for this final tour (the Manchester gig has been upgraded twice!).  

I'm hoping to see Dr Brian in his new working environment sometime this year.

I've passed on several concerts recently due the stupid rising prices most notably Dave Mason who I'd loved to have seen but refused to pay the exorbitant ticket prices. The only hope is that things will change when Promoters start seeing half empty theatres.

He's a bit slippery - I've been on at him about this for months, since the dates were first announced, and he kept on saying he'd get back to me 'soon'.  We have different definitions of 'soon'...
But he was the guy who introduced me to Al's music in the sixth form, and we have always gone to see him together, going back to the Albert Hall in 1986, so I couldn't really go without him!

Next Wednesday at ACL Live, the dapper Bryan Ferry in a rare central Texas appearance!

Opening act:  Judith Owen, featuring the legendary Leland Sklar on bass!  I guess Harry Shearer (aka Derek Smalls) was unavailable.

The Airplane Family at the old Dingwalls Dance Hall, London

26th June: The Airplane Family play rare Paul Kantner songs/ Live Dead '69

27th June: The Airplane Family play rare Grace Slick songs/ Live Dead '69

29th June: The Airplane Family play rare Balin, Jorma songs/ Live Dead '69

Yum. :)


San Francisco, CA (Mar. 1, 2017) — THE AIRPLANE FAMILY & FRIENDS with LIVE DEAD ’69, fresh off their critically acclaimed 2016 inaugural tour – continue in 2017 to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of “The San Francisco Sound,” “The Summer of Love” and it’s iconic anthem “Somebody To Love” written by band co-founder Darby Slick. THE AIRPLANE FAMILY reunites Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship, Hot Tuna and Grateful Dead alumni – with musical luminaries – comprising a veritable “Who’s Who” of ‘The Summer of Love’s’ legendary musicians, and introducing 2 sensational vocalists. The halcyon era performers are:
Slick Aguilar, Jefferson Starship lead guitarist (1992-2015), also David Crosby Band lead guitarist (1983-1986). Since co founding The Kantner, Balin, Casady Band in 1985, Aguilar performed longer with the late Paul Kantner & with Marty Balin - and played the songs of Jefferson Airplane and Jefferson Starship more than any other musician ever.
Darby Slick, composer of “Somebody To Love,” who launched the career of Grace Slick in his band The Great Society before she joined Jefferson Airplane in 1966.
Peter Kaukonen, was a founding member of both Hot Tuna & Jefferson Starship, and a member of Jefferson Airplane with his brother Jorma. Peter’s band, Black Kangaroo, was the first group signed by the Airplane’s label, Grunt Records.
Mike Falzarano, a long time member of Jefferson Airplane spinoff Hot Tuna in the 1980s; and, in recent years - helped forge and lead a resurgent, acclaimed iteration of Grateful Dead spinoff, The New Riders Of The Purple Sage.
Prairie Prince, Jefferson Starship drummer (1992-2007), also co-founded The Tubes, regularly tours with Todd Rundgren; and, is a world famous Artist & designer. Prairie also played on the only commercial release by Grateful Dead’s Phil Lesh & Friends.
Also featured, are two sensational vocalists …
Eva Avila, acclaimed Canadian Idol winner, actress & star of the acclaimed production “The Wall Live Extravaganza” makes her U.S. debut reprising Grace Slick’s vocal repertoire. Joli Valenti, son of Dino Valenti, sings Marty Balin’s timeless parts & brings selections from Quicksilver Messenger Service who often shared the bill with The Dead & Airplane back in the Fillmore era.

LIVE DEAD 69 comprised of original Grateful Dead pianist Tom Constanten, who played all the keyboards on the original “Live Dead” recording; and, Mark Karan, lead guitarist with Bob Weir’s Rat Dog and The Other Ones, which featured every other surviving Grateful Dead member. Live Dead 69 shall perform the classic “Live Dead” (recorded in 1969) in its entirety for the first time anywhere ever.

Hmmm....I'd be cautious about the 'extras'.  I went to  similar  shows at Dingwalls (with Kantner & Balin in the lineup) about 10 years ago(?) & though the performances were great, what was actually advertised - & what I paid for - was a rip-off. The 'meet & greet' was open to anyone anyway, I never received the soundboard recording & organisationally it was all a bit 'loose'. I'm not blaming the musicians & it was great to meet Paul Kantner but I did feel a bit short-changed...
I don't think Peter Kaukonen was ever actually a member of the Airplane was he?
I would love to go &  I'd love to see the 'Live Dead 69' set, but at those prices and sadly with no Paul Kantner (or David Freiburg?) I'll give this a miss.....

Cheers,

Slippy

Yes, me too, although it was actually 4 years ago and it was an absolutely barnstorming gig. I had been to a top notch Springsteen epic at Wembley the night before and was back at the O2 the following night for Neil Young & Crazy Horse but The Who wiped the floor with both of them that weekend.

I had my doubts after Entwhistle died that they really had the right to continue as The Who. As has been noted, it was the rhythm section that in many ways defined the band's sound but I have seen them twice in this incarnation, Southampton in about 2007 and the aforementioned show at the O2 and I was blown away both times, much more so than I was by shows in the late 80s and early 90s when the Ox was still alive. But that O2 show was so perfect (& the live album from a different London show on that tour is ace too) that I don't feel the need to see them again.

That will happen I imagine but on a smaller scale than for big name bands at enormodomes.  The Brakes have a good solid support base and a London based gig at a 350 capacity venue is going to sell out.  The simple truth is for most gigs these days...to guarantee a ticket you have to be pressing buttons at the very moment they go on sale.  Sad but true...

Interesting thought Al.
You made me think that there are bands who I have seen and loved but not been bothered about seeing again.
Then there are the bands, incl, Waterboys, Oysterband, Ry Cooder, Van Morrison , who I do go back to.
Van Morrison was one of the best gigs I ever saw and on another occasion, one  of the worst!

Well, that was lovely.  A varied mix of songs on local issues – birdwatching, smugglers, shipwrecks, Amy Johnson’s last flight, etc., accompanied by a slideshow of photos of the area around Leigh (seems to be the fashion at concerts these days).  The encore was a comic sea shanty – not something I normally associate with Alasdair Roberts! – with a hint of local rivalry (‘Kent’ rhyming with ‘flatulent’).  Thoroughly enjoyable and a hugely talented bunch of musicians.  They will be performing it again at Leigh.

Indeed. I have read them both. I am a long time DB fan. I know he has certain tropes that he returns to time and again and has some rather odd opinions sometimes (particularly about further education) but he is a radio legend. Many years ago, before Radio 5 started to take itself too seriously and when it still played music, he had a fantastic breakfast show Monday to Friday. It was the perfect way to start a working day, with a smile on one's face from the surreal shenanigans that took place and he had great taste in music too. I can remember him regularly playing the likes of Marshall Crenshaw and Grant McLennan and generally staying away from the mainstream playlist.

When Radio 5 got up itself and became 5 Live, the show moved to weekends on Radio 1 but it was never such a good fit there and was eventually hived off to local radio in London which I think was a tragedy. I am an avid listener to DB's current 5 Live show on Saturday morning's but Danny is a music man through & through and I wish they would let him do something like his old show again. It was an perfect mix of music and madness without the in your face shoutiness of someone like Chris Evans's Radio 2 show.

Yes, sometimes he managed to play as many as four songs in an hour! :D
But I agree with you, it was a brilliant show.  As was 606 when he started it.

Danny Baker brings his one man "Cradle To The Stage" show to Scunthorpe tonight and I'm really looking forward to this


I have booked to catch that in Crawley, the night before Big Session Festival in Buxton so that is going to be a busy weekend.





Indeed. I have read them both. I am a long time DB fan. I know he has certain tropes that he returns to time and again and has some rather odd opinions sometimes (particularly about further education) but he is a radio legend. Many years ago, before Radio 5 started to take itself too seriously and when it still played music, he had a fantastic breakfast show Monday to Friday. It was the perfect way to start a working day, with a smile on one's face from the surreal shenanigans that took place and he had great taste in music too. I can remember him regularly playing the likes of Marshall Crenshaw and Grant McLennan and generally staying away from the mainstream playlist.

When Radio 5 got up itself and became 5 Live, the show moved to weekends on Radio 1 but it was never such a good fit there and was eventually hived off to local radio in London which I think was a tragedy. I am an avid listener to DB's current 5 Live show on Saturday morning's but Danny is a music man through & through and I wish they would let him do something like his old show again. It was an perfect mix of music and madness without the in your face shoutiness of someone like Chris Evans's Radio 2 show.





Don't know why he never got a foot hold into 6 Music with his musical taste / knowledge / stories?

Paul Weller Friday at the Albert Hall. Lovely surprise to find Kelly Jones, later joined by the rest of the Stereophonics, in support. Ronnie Wood also put in an appearance.

Weller was good - promoting a new album that would seem to be less rockier than his previous work. I would have liked a bit more Jam, but he's been a solo artist far longer so I suppose that will take precedence.  A good but not a great gig, memorable more for the venue than the band.


I'm going to see him at Doncaster on Wednesday night (5th)

Two of the brothers, the sister and a bus load of cousins went to see Mr Weller in Carlisle last year. The older brother hated it, the baby brother said it was boring and the sister and cousins got drunk.
    The baby brother, whose opinions aren't always wrong, said Weller was uncommunicative, oniy played new stuff and got shirty when people shouted for the songs his career was founded upon. He said Weller was" up his own arse".
     For myself, any gig where the Stereophonics are on the bill is one I'd be keen to swerve.

I first saw the Stereophonics supporting The Who at Earl's Court in, I think, '95. I thought they were alright but they define conservative (small 'c'!) pop-rock, along with the vast majority of Weller's solo career if truth be told.

I'm rather excited to have got tickets (proper old school printed ones!) for Ryley Walker in Chester (lovely old church venue) in August. Only £13 too. Now that's what I call Dad-rock with sooooooooul  :)

Back on topic. My next gig is Rudy Warman at the end of the pier on Friday evening.

He is unsigned and plays a sort of bluesy rock. A friend of mine was very impressed by his performance as a support act for someone and I figured it is a cheap night out. His self released CDs (which I borrowed) are pleasant enough but allegedly do not do his live performance justice. He has a voice that strongly reminds me of someone else, John Fogerty possibly.

An evening of Can music at the Barbican on Saturday. Rather sadly, only Irmin Schmidt and Malcolm Mooney are attending. It would have been great to have Holger Czukay and Damo Suzuki there as well. Michael Karoli and Jaki Liebezeit will be there in spirit - and on film.

Should be quite an interesting (and long!) event - 5pm until very late - Q&A session; Irmin's new orchestral piece; Can live concert film; Can music reinterpreted by Thurston Moore et al; finally, for those still standing, a "kosmische disco".  :o

The National - wahay.

Pretty ropey tickets actually considering they were allocated to me by the most automated ticket ordering system I've ever used about 35 seconds after the opening of the, er, 'pre-sale' (what does that even mean?).  Still, I'm going, if only to watch my other half swooning uncontrollable over Mr Berninger...

Going purely on Steve Wynn's recent form I would say it's unlikely, the UK has got short shrift in recent years. The last time he was over here was the lone London Dream Syndicate gig four years ago and a couple of years before that since any solo gigs and they were London only as well. It's a long time since he's ventured out beyond the capital, so I'm surprised to get the Leeds gig tbh. If Manchester and/or Liverpool do get added I'll be there without question.

Last time I saw them was way back on their Joshua Tree tour at Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh with support from The Pogues (only time I ever saw them), The Mission, Love & Money and Runrig. The Mission were the best band of the day. Must've been U2's first stadium tour and I remember them playing too many cover versions for my liking. I had previously seen them on the Unforgettable Fire tour and they played a blinder that night at the Edinburgh Playhouse.

But like Will, those sort of gigs are out of my price range these days.

It's in the lyrics to 'I just got off the Plane' from the As You Like it LP, and maybe elsewhere. Unfortunately the 2 youtube versions are unavailable' 'Brilliant Pogues' is listed as one of the things the writer is sick of.

I'm afraid, to these ears, the answer is a resounding yes.  Other opinions are available (although fairly hard to locate, if truth be told).  As for your latter point, absolutely...I'd still be there if I could.  I was lucky enough to see her 3 times a few years ago, so I know just how fine she can still be...

She's deliberately playing it very low key indeed...and everything is pretty close to home.  From what I understand, she got pretty freaked by the attention and the hassle of being out there 3 or 4 years ago...which is why she's a) sharing the burden this time and b) not venturing far.  It's all likely to be fairly word of mouth, I fear...

Yes, not the big hall. I'm hoping he sings a song or two. There's a book signing afterwards, so will probably get a copy and maybe take a couple of other items to see if there's any chance of getting them signed.

Looking forward to seeing Jackie Oates and Jim Causley this evening at Nettlebed.  We are fortunate to have her as one of the residents at the club, which usually means she sings a couple of unaccompanied songs between sets, so it'll be good to see her doing a fuller set of her own too.

And at the end of the week, weather permitting, we're hoping to see Fishermen's Friends in their natural habitat, on the Platt in Port Isaac.

I am hopefully going to see Shelagh Mcdonald and Nigel H seymour at the Malt Kiln Bardsea on the 21st of July


A pity you can't get one without the other these days, but - for at least half the time - you'll be in for a treat.


Very envious.  I missed her when she came down south and it does not sound as if she is venturing very far at the moment.  Still, when I googled ‘Shelagh McDonald live’ to see if she was playing any other dates (her website is useless), it brought up a link to a very nice little concert of hers that I had never heard before.  So, some consolation there.

About 50 minutes for the full Planets suite, so that was the second half.  

Unfortunately the trains were up the creek, so we ended up arriving at the RAH 10 minutes late and had to listen to the VW through the door, as there was no point where we could sneak in unobtrusively (even though we were sitting way up in the gods in a restricted view area).  But it was a good evening, and the Planets was the bit we really wanted to hear (got some real tunes in it, unlike the VW :) )

Yes, I do think they could have some 'crossover' success. I'm taking my daughters too so I'll be interested too see what they think. My view is that they are better female role models than Little Mix, but I think I may be fighting a losing battle...

I logged onto Colston Hall (Bristol) just after 9am, was nearly 800th in the queue! It was eventually my turn nearly an hour later and said all areas sold out except for one part of the balcony "A few tickets remaining - buy now!". So I tried to buy now but got stuck on a look of "unable to process order" and "A few tickets remaining - buy now!" which got tiresome so I logged off.
Ancient Muse tried a few website but prices had rocketed up to £180 plus by then. So we're not going  :(
I'm sure Planty is keen to leave us panting for more, but would it be that difficult to do 2 nights, or take on some bigger venues? And how about coming to Cardiff, Wales Capital City and with a catchment of 3m people within travelling distance?

Saturday:  "Classic Quadrophenia" presented by Pete Townshend, with Alfie Boe and Billy Idol, The Greek Theater, Los Angeles.
 - Really looking forward to this one!  Pete and Alfie duetted on "Love Reign O'er Me" on the Tonight Show last week, and Alfie has an incredible voice.  He's no threat to Roger Daltrey in the rock singing department, but he really makes Quadrophenia feel operatic.

Jamie Smith's Mabon are playing at the Platform in Morecambe on Friday. I'm always a tad apprehensive about going to gigs there as the acoustics are somewhat barn-like - the building used to be the train station. Mabon will hopefully be ok as they have a fairly solid sound with guitar, bass and drums along with Jamie's accordion and the fiddle player.

I had hoped they would play at the Hothouse as it's a better place for acoustic gigs. I mentioned that venue to them earlier in the year when I saw they were coming to Morecambe but they were already booked in at the Platform. But it's good they are playing here as many folk bands head up to Kendal.

Patron's Evening at Nettlebed on Monday: Phil Beer (the club's patron) has invited Geoff Lakeman, Sam Kelly, Alice Jones and Miranda Sykes to perform.  Should be good!

And (not quite a gig, I know) I'm going to the Pink Floyd exhibition at the V&A on Saturday.

I have seen Martin and his band a few times in the last couple of years. Like most performers of his vintage, his voice is not what it was but the band are great and sound, to me, more authentically like WA than the official version. Go for it. I don't think you will be disappointed.

Considering Justin Hayward in Worthing on Saturday but £35
Also Suzanne Vega in Brighton next week but also £35

This I would suggest is why these shows are not yet sold out. All these £35 add up to more than I can afford at the moment.

I did in the end decide to splash out the £35 (or so) to see Suzanne Vega in Oxford in a couple of weeks' time, but it was a close run thing.  If I hadn't found a friend who was keen to go, I probably wouldn't have.

The only other time I have seen her was promoting Solitude Standing, and this concert is celebrating 30 years since then!

How was it Will? Should I go?

I first saw her at the Royal Albert Hall, I think also promoting the Solitude Standing album.

The only other time I saw her was in Worthing during the tour for, I think Nine Objects of Desire but it may even have been 99.9F. Both shows were great. The second much rockier than the first which was largely acoustic. The support act on the first date were Cry No More who I enjoyed very much and whose first two albums (which I only have on vinyl) I still like a lot.

PP Arnold, The Kenton Theatre Henley, 27th October...It's always a treat visiting this little theatre...

From the theatre website-

Arriving in the UK in 1966 as an Ikette, PP Arnold was quickly
spotted by Mick Jagger and recommended to Rolling Stones manager
Andrew Loog Oldham, with one of her earliest hits The First Cut is the
Deepest, produced by Kenton regular Mike Hurst.
One of the most in-demand singers of the last five decades,
she has worked with everyone from Rod Stewart, Roger Waters
and Jimi Hendrix to Paul Weller, Peter Gabriel and Primal Scream.

My Wayback Machine tells me I have seen Steve Winwood three times before, in the past 31 years:

SW/Bruce Hornsby and the Range - Frank Erwin Center, Austin, October 9, 1986 ("Back in the High Life" tour)
The Who (special guest SW, Elton John, Billy Idol, Phil Collins and Patti LaBelle) - Universal Amphitheater, Los Angeles, August 24, 1989 ("Tommy" performance)
Eric Clapton/SW - Toyota Center, Houston, June 24, 2009 (co-headlining tour)

Yes of course.
She played the demo recording by Adrian Wagner which I sang on, and which I put on the first CD of  my Gathering the Threads 3 CD Anthology, which Earth Recordings subsequently released as Anthology Pt One.

Quite surprised to learn they were back together again to be honest! I thought they dried up way back when Kirk Brandon formed Spear of Destiny.

Thinking about it, I'm also a bit surprised that both bands are still in operation yet neither has played Beautiful Days..!

None of this is any help to you at all I'm afraid. But thanks for reminding me about them. If they were playing anywhere near here I'd be tempted to go along just out of curiosity.

Just booked for False Lights and Kings of the South Seas at the Manchester Folk Festival should be fantastic love both bands particularly live! Don't think I can make it for Hannah James Jigdoll with new band, will have to try and catch them somewhere else.

I'm doing the November show in Brighton. The Icicle Works are pretty much McNabb playing that material with whoever happens to be backing him these days, though Chris Sharrock is usually involved. I went to their last Brighton show, just last year I think and it was a belter so I won't be unhappy to hear a wider/different range of material so soon afterwards. There has been some good stuff on recent McNabb solo albums. It would be a shame to neglect it but the Icicle Works name probably shifts a few more tickets.

I thought they were a pretty stable line up these days?  Matthew from Dodgy on drums etc?

I was just surprised to see this tour as being billed as 'playing the best of Icicle Works and Ian McNabb's solo work'.  Last time I saw them they didn't play a single solo tune in a 2 hr plus set.

Yes that's right. The last tour was wholly Icicles material. I think that is why he is varying it up this time to keep it interesting as the previous tour was not long ago. But I take your point. He plays Icicles numbers on his "solo" shows so why is this not a solo tour? As I say, I think the Icicles' name shifts more tickets.

Pretenders with The Rails as support.
The last time we saw them , albeit about 10 years ago, Chrissie was on fire. There were at least seven encores , and all except the last was more than one song. "Wanna know how to get a body like this , you backstage after the gig!!" An epic performance of Springsteen proportions. Not expecting quite that much tonight (but hoping ;D)

Tribute band is harsh (although arguably true).  Got an original '69 member and a guy that played in The Other Ones plus a Jefferson Starship/Crosby band member.  Saw them this last Feb...they were great.  College permitting, I'll be back next year.

So, this coming week (ish) it is Tom Robinson at the 100 Club on Wednesday and The Doobie Brothers and either Steely or Dan at the O2 next Sunday.

Also just booked to see A Winter Union at a church in Bethnal Green in December. It will cost me considerably more to get there and back than the cost of the tickets but in the absence of the Aggies, the Albions or the Young 'Uns bringing their seasonal shows anywhere near my neck of the woods this year, I thought I would enjoy this one.

You answered your own question perfectly  ;D  There's two new tracks on the album.  The lead track is certainly on Spotify...that's the particular bit of middle-aged disco (what's up with Curt's voice...it sounds totally treated to unrecognisability?)

Yes, I am worried about Curt's voice. It was decidedly fragile during the BBC gig. They didn't play any new stuff so I can't comment on that as I haven't heard the single.

I too am a fan, particularly of the first two albums. After that the records are patchy but they all have their moments. Seeds of Love was a classic example of an 80s album that spent too long in the making. There were a lot of those in the 80s, records that were made at great cost over years in the studio but which ultimately disappointed. Shame as the title track is terrific.

I can't say I am surprised. I was underwhelmed too, though it did improve somewhat in the latter stages. I had already committed to attending a gig ith friends before I saw it so I shall cleave to the hope that the BBC show was the product of rustiness and they will be match fit by May.

I was hoping to see Caravan at Bury Met in a couple of weeks, but family logistics have dictated otherwise. As luck would have it another Canterbury-era band (with one less original member than Caravan), Soft Machine, are playing at Band on the Wall in Manchester on Nov 23rd.

Saw Caravan a few years ago in Oxford and they were really excellent, wonderful gig. Hope you catch them again somewhere. I'm off to check if there are any more live dates near enough.

By contrast, the same band at Brighton Old Market tomorrow night. It is a standing venue but because of some ongoing musculoskeletal issues at the moment. that means I might struggle. Hope not.

Excellent, the best Oysters setlist for more years than I can remember, almost everything you would expect to hear in an anniversary retrospective type set. Good to see Lee involved so much as well, I'd expected a walk-on for a few songs but he spent the majority of the set on stage. With the Oysters we always try to avoid seated venues wherever possible but didn't really have much choice on this tour, so not exactly a perfect match of band and venue for us. Somewhere like the Albert Hall (in Manchester, not the Royal one) would have been a better bet with both standing and seating depending on your preference. I just felt that I'd liked to have seen a bit more energy coming from the audience but that's the effect the RNCM tends to have, you felt a lot of people wanted to get up and dance, that was certainly the case in the front row where we were, but were just too intimidated by the place.

John Smith at The Music Room, Liverpool tonight. Spoilt for choice today, it could have been British Sea Power in Manchester or Kaleidoscope in London but having seen BSP several times already this year and doubting my wallet could stand another sortie to London so soon after the last, John got the nod. Sold out too, he seems to be picking up a pretty healthy following on the quiet.

It's quite a nice old building, but of course there are plenty of those in Salop. The beer is nice and it has a good rep for food, though I haven't had any myself.

The bit with the music is up a flight or two of stairs. I'm pretty sure there's a lift, but best to check if you have mobility problems. I guess it holds about 60 to 80 (the room not the lift)? Haven't been for a year or three and can't really remember.

The times I've been there was no support act, and the main act doesn't seem to play for long (not as long as I would expect at a folk club, for instance) so I'm not sure about the VFM bit, although they might have changed things. All in all, it's nice but I would rather go somewhere else to see someone I liked, such as the Hive round the corner.

True but I like the fact he hasn't chosen an assumed name, adds some authenticity which runs through his performances and albums. Headlong, his latest album is a really fine piece of work, one of those albums that I've had to put repeat. Great voice, shades of John Martyn, and really good guitar work, just good, not flashy and fussy. Intriguing songs as well, can't ask for much more.

Very nice venue, the first time we've been there although a friend is a regular and has been recommending the place to us for a while. It's a 15th century timbered building which was originally a collection of houses and shops that have now been amalgamated into one. The ground floor is a bar/restaurant, first floor a larger restaurant and the top floor the live venue. Capacity is apparently 90, although it felt like they had a few more in than that last night. A very low stage, so I'd recommend taking the trouble to get a seat at the front, not sure if you'd be able to see a great deal from the back.

John Smith is originally from Devon, although moved to Liverpool when he was a student and has lived there for most of the time since. He started gigging around Liverpool and Manchester, so he's built a particularly strong following there. John Martyn and John Renbourn were early supporters and he toured quite a few times supporting both. He's self-released five studio albums between 2006 and 2017, plus a live CD and DVD although they're both next to impossible to find these days. Excellent songwriter and guitarist and he's a really nice guy too.

There is a stage but it's no more than six inches high, so from anything further back than the first few rows it might look like there isn't one. If you look at the photo gallery on their website there's one of the room when empty and you can (just) see it at the far end.

I can't quite decide.  I'm absolutely furious about the whole 'Royal / Courtiers package' nonsense (all of those horrific picture of small groups of rich white fat middle aged men posted daily are beyond tragic) which coupled with the cost of the tickets put me off anyhow.  Having said that, the band are on terrific form so if I can find the ridiculous amount of money necessary, I probably will.  But it doesn't fill me with joy as it should do.  


Title: Re: Upcoming gigs
Post by: PaulT on November 22, 2017, 11:25:25 AM
I see your point, David, and I agree to some extent. But, without those packages, the best seats would be snaffled up by touts, and true fans - whether fat, rich, white, male and/or middle-aged or not - would get less for their money; the touts would line their pockets; and the band's finances - and thus ability to carry on (touring) - would suffer.  

As a relatively (!) slim, white, 60-something male in the fortunate position to be able to afford a ticket, I'll be aiming for a seat about halfway back in the stalls, or at the front of the circle, as I'm not convinced that a front-row seat would provide the best sound balance.

It's far from the perfect solution to the touting/reselling problem, but at least KC/DGM are trying to do something +ve, I think (hope!).

The only thing they're achieving is meaning the vastly overpriced tickets go to rich fans...which is exactly where they were going before.  They're effectively legitimising the excesses of the touts (but then saying, but it's ok, as you're giving us the money not ticketmaster or some thug in Russia).  The method is obviously far more moral, but the end result is exactly the same....the good tickets go only to those that can afford the ridiculous mark ups.  Then again, I'm sure David Singleton's little talks and a nod and a wink from one of the gang are all well worth a couple of hundred.  Don't get me wrong...I'm just embittered that I've not got enough cash myself really.  Same old, same old.  ;)

I once saw Lindisfarne's Rod Clements play to an audience of 12 in a small club in Cardiff. I'll give him his due, though, he performed a great set and wasn't at all phased by the embarrassingly small crowd.


Some of the best gigs I've ever seen have been embarrassingly small audiences.  The best attitude I've come across was Ian McNabb (it was an Icicle Works gig at the Tiv, Buckley - audience of around 50 odd), who basically ignored it, thanked everyone for turning out, and played like it was packed out for 2 hours+.  He did joke about forgetting himself and going crowd surfing.

In Upcoming news, I'm getting quite excited by the lineup developing for the Focus Wales festival in Wrexham next May.  Some good stuff in there... http://www.focuswales.com/



Other than Kate Rusby and 9bach I don't think I have heard of any of those acts.  We obviously move in different circles!

That's what makes a good festival for me..! Shame it's on weekdays during term time.

If I could make one recommendation though Will, it would be to have a quick listen to This Is The Kit and Haiku Salut. Probably not worth a jaunt to Wrexham for, but very good nonetheless I think.



Edit: Snap!

Meanwhile, upcoming for me is a gig at Modern Art Oxford tomorrow night; Co-Pilgrim and The Epstein.

We saw Phil Alvin and the Blasters at the Rockabilly Revival a few years ago, in a showcase curated by Lee Rocker of the Stray Cats and headlined by the Killer himself, Jerry Lee Lewis.  Enjoy!  The Blasters are a great American roots band.

Looks from the majority of the other gigs they have on to be a classical music venue, although Cara Dillon is on the night after. I would offer you a lift but am on a tight schedule myself I have to get up at five in the morning the following day for work.

John McLaughlin and Jimmy Herring "Meeting of the Spirits" at the Paramount Theater, Austin, Texas, Thursday, November 30.

Sales are very respectable but there are quite a few available tickets.  There's no way I could persuade Mrs. J From A to accompany me, so I think I may attend this one by meself.

JM has announced this as his "farewell" tour.  I've never seen him before, and apparently will never have another opportunity.

Seat booked for King Crimson at Birmingham Symphony Hall next November (!). 3rd row back, centre of the Circle.

I did look at a "Courtier's" package, but it would have been twice the price and the seat allocated would have been E28 - too close, IMO, to the stage and too far to one side to get a well-balanced band sound - much as I like P@ Mastelotto's percussive work.

Next gig for me is the Roving Crows + guests at the Watson Hall in Tewkesbury 2 weeks tomorrow. They've played Cropredy Fringe, I reckon they'd go down well in the field too.

Title: Re: Upcoming gigs
Post by: PaulT on December 01, 2017, 06:10:30 PM
Just under £60, David (including "booking fee"); "Courtier" package would have been about £124 - but I can easily live without an exclusive 4CD compilation (as I'll more than likely have most tracks already - and if not, have access to them from the DGM archive), and a signed programme.

Really?  That surprises me greatly.  I paid £78.50 inc booking fees in 2015.  I might investigate after all.

It is pleasing...I thought we'd lost him to Roger Waters for ever.  Personally, I do wish his obsession with Leeds was a little less pronounced....he always plays there (at the expense of more Westerly Northern cities).

Victoria Ukulele Group - free gig, for charity, outside Angie's Bar, Bull Lane, Gloucester 1000-1030 tomorrow. Apparently no power supply available, so I shall be playing the bass parts on acoustic guitar rather than plugging in the U-bass.  Other, more experienced, ukey groups are set to play later during the day, I believe.

Then we're off to see the Roving Crows in Tewkesbury tomorrow evening...
