What orchestra is this?

Favorite movements from The Planets for me are NOT the first four. In fact, Mars and Jupiter are SOOOO overplayed.

Saturn, Uranus and Neptune are my favorites. Incredibly underplayed and under appreciated movements.

Concerts in the past:
24 January: Voicst, De Helling, Utrecht
6 February: Voicst, Ekko, Utrecht (acoustic showcase)
8 February: Voicst, So What, Gouda (check them out at http://www.myspace.com/voicst)
22 March: Silkstone & Voicst, Studio 31, Hilversum
28 March: Claw Boys Claw, Paradiso, Amsterdam (a wild party!)
5 May: Bevrijdings (Liberation) Festival, Utrecht. The main act I saw was Voicst (I'm seeing a trend this year)
9 May: The Paper Chase, dB Studios, Utrecht (went there with Rono and ABEL!)
29 June: Voicst, Vondelpark, Amsterdam (a free acoustic show in the outdoor theatre at the Vondelpark)
6 July: Metropolis Festival, Zuiderpark, Rotterdam (free festival, saw Voicst again)
12 July: Doe Maar, Feyenoord Stadium, Rotterdam (they were amazing! Sure, it was a pure nostalgia fest with 90% of the songs from their '80s heyday and just a few from their 2000 reunion album, but still.)
2 August: Daniel Lanois & Brian Blade, Paradiso, Amsterdam (an amazing show, the music Daniel Lanois can get out of just one guitar! And Brian Blade is an amazing drummer too)
14 August: Michael Franti & Spearhead, Paradiso, Amsterdam (I had a great time, but I think this might be the last time I'm going to see him. He's moving in a direction I'm not really digging)
15 to 18 August: Lowlands festival, Biddinghuizen (I had a great time. Saw lots of bands. Highlights were: The Ting Tings, The Flaming Lips, Claw Boys Claw, Franz Ferdinand, Police In Dub Experience, dEUS, and The Dresden Dolls. And no, Voicst did not play here, they were at Sziget.)

Concerts in the future:
30 August: Festival De Beschaving, Utrecht (with acts like Kate Nash, Pete Philly & Perquisite, C-Mon & Kypski, Gram and Angus & Julia also a winner. And Voicst too!)
27 September: Emmylou Harris, Carré, Amsterdam
2 October: Coldplay, Ahoy, Rotterdam
11 October, Voicst, Paradiso, Amsterdam

Life's good!
The festival season has ended, but it's going to be one heck of a fall!

Concerts in the past:
24 January: Voicst, De Helling, Utrecht
6 February: Voicst, Ekko, Utrecht (acoustic showcase)
8 February: Voicst, So What, Gouda (check them out at MySpace.com - Voicst - Amsterdam)
22 March: Silkstone ( ) & Voicst ( ), Studio 31, Hilversum
28 March: Claw Boys Claw, Paradiso, Amsterdam (a wild party! )
5 May: Bevrijdings (Liberation) Festival, Utrecht. The main act I saw was Voicst ( I'm seeing a trend this year)

30 August: Festival De Beschaving, Utrecht (saw full sets by Voist, Gram, Gem plus some good stuff by Pete Philly & Perquisite and Mogwai and some others. Kate Nash was disappointing.)

Concerts in the future:
27 September: Emmylou Harris, Carré, Amsterdam
2 October: Coldplay, Ahoy, Rotterdam
8 October: Hautekiet en De Leeuw (CD presentation), Paradiso, Amsterdam
11 October: Voicst, Paradiso, Amsterdam

And I might see Gem somewhere in November (in Heerlen of all places).
I even have some concerts already planned in 2009!

June 14 - R.E.M.
August 8 and 9 - All Points West/Radiohead - The announced line-up besides Radiohead is greatly disappointing but I cannot miss the boys locally.

Would have liked to have seen The Police again with Elvis Costello in what may possibly be The Police's last show ever at Jones Beach, but I'm going broke with all these shows on sale (except for REM) in the same month so I had to make the hard choice to pass it up. The ticket price and the fact that they left me a little unsatisfied when I saw them in August were the deciding factors... As for the rest, thank goodness for tax refunds...

I think that will probably be it until Fall , unless somebody I must see surprises me and/or I hit a free Summer show or two.
Well that wasn't it. Added since then...

June 29 - The Hold Steady (free show!) (rained out)
July 3 August 2 - Coldplay (in Hartford, just picked that up today...I didn't win tix to the free MSG show, a good seat came up and I didn't want to wait for Jersey in October, I kinda dislike Continent...er, the Izod, anyway, and there's a 12:30AM bus so I don't have to stay overnight)
July 30 - Live
October 7 - Madonna (in the cheap seats)

I did toy once again with getting tix to (really this time) the last Police show at MSG on August 7 but again, I took a pass, guess I'm just not feeling it.
Fall Update:

Also seen: July 19 - Broken Social Scene (free festival!)

Also coming up:

October 18 - The Secret Machines
November 5- The Decemberists
November 7 - The Hold Steady (making up for missing them in the summer)

And then that really should be it unless something is going on when I'm in Iceland at the end of November, then I will be ending the concert year as I began it.
