So at this children's concert, the band does a snippet of U2's Bad (along with full cover of In a Big Country, snippet of 500 Miles and Snippet of Panama, the kids had no clue), Nina (if anyone else here has kids who watch the show) sang the "wide awake" line and was damn good. Go figure.

I'm pretty excited for this show. I've never seen a show at this venue. Should be fun. See you there!

Couple of new shows. I will be going to see Prince on Saturday! Very excited. Also, Rage Against the Machine, Muse, Rise Against and Snoop? will be performing at the LA Coliseum July 30. I will be getting tickets to that. Will also likely need to invest in riot gear.

So as of now:

Tonight: The Airborne Toxic Event at the Music Box in Hollywood.
Saturday: PRINCE! at the Forum.

5/14: The Kills at the Fox Theatre in Pomona.

6/4: Some Irish band and LENNY KRAVITZ!
6/17: More LENNY KRAVITZ
6/18: I can't get enough of LENNY KRAVITZ!

7/30: RATM, Muse, Rise Against, and Snoop (maybe) at the LA Coliseum (maybe)

If I survive that:
8/12-14: Outside Lands

Got to see The New Pornographers yesterday, albeit without Dan. Still worth the three day pass. Also saw Mumford & Sons, Lucinda Williams, and John Mellencamp. Meh.

Heading back down now to see Amos Lee, Lucero, Gregg Allman, Avett Brothers, and ultimately peaking with Wilco. If the water stays in the eastern bank and lightning holds off, it should be a great finale. It better be, because it's supposed to get wetter today.

Good bill, I'd say, though the Pornos lose a lot of spice without Dan, who's a fucking bro live. When I saw them, he nursed a can of beer (holding it in one hand) the whole time and sang his songs with detached badassery. Can't wait to see Destroyer at P4k.

Lucinda Williams is awesome.

ha, it looks like i didn't miss a thing this year. there's not a single act in the whole line-up i'd want to see. the years are hit-and-miss for me, some years i want to get a three day pass, some not at all.

Yeah, it hurt to see Dan missing. Some of my favorite TNP songs are his. Their shows definitely feel "safer" without him staggering on and off stage with a wine bottle. He injects an element of sinister unpredictability into the otherwise feel-good of TNP shows. I get the feeling from stage banter that Carl and the band have no idea how to really handle him.

I agree on Lucinda, but I could have never guessed how little stage presence she brings. The swagger on record just did not translate on stage. It almost hurt to watch.

I totally relate. I'd not been remotely interested in Music Fest for about three years, and this is the first time I ever remember buying the pass. The main thing that stood out to me was the fact that every "headliner" act this year is actually relevant. Most years, there are numerous washed-up bands who haven't put out a proper album in 20 years.

Regardless, I travel to see TNP and Wilco, and I'll take them anyway I can get them. Many of the others I'd never pay to see, but I'd sit through them if it was paid for. The Flaming Lips were icing on the cake. That was truly an experience.
