I saw Black Sabbath on the 12th in San Antonio, last U.S. stop for the "The End" Tour.

Totally worth it. Most of the material they played was from the first three albums, with the most recent track performed being "Dirty Women" from 'Technical Ecstasy.' All three charter members sounded in good form, and Ozzy didn't do that annoying thing where he yells "We love you!" during every instrumental break like in the 'Live at Last' album. And the new drummer did a decent job recreating Bill's parts. Sound was very clear -- I saw Iron Maiden in this same venue 3 years ago and the sound was muddy as hell. Only 13 tracks performed not counting the bass solo before "NIB," but it didn't seem short; I felt I got the full Black Sabbath experience.

Setlist:

Black Sabbath
Fairies Wear Boots
After Forever
Into the Void
Snowblind
War Pigs
Behind the Wall of Sleep
Bassically
NIB
Rat Salad (with long drum solo for sweet leaf break presumably)
Iron Man
Dirty Women
Children of the Grave
Paranoid

Excellent show. So many influences and I approve of all of them: Otis, Janis, Prince, Jimi, Booker T, Sister Rosetta Tharpe.

Five stars
I love you.

Friday nite I got a last minute ticket for sold out Pat Methany show close to my home at the Ridgefield Theatre in CT. Nice old theatre. Saw Methany twice in 87 and again in 97 so its been a long time. Methany came out alone with his Pikasso 42-string guitar acoustic guitar. Of course he had to show us he could play all 42 strings. :lol:

Then his band came out two younger musicians and Antonio Sánchez on Drums. He played a bunch of older tunes and some interesting experimental stuff. Always a fan of his synth guitar. First encore he did a melody including "This is not America" which had a few people (including me) humming it on the way out. No Pictures per PM!

Sanchez of s a top drummer, he's got at least one album as a leader himself! I saw Pat a year or so ago also for the first time in a long time (Early 90s for me). He's one of those artists I can enjoy in concert from time to time but not interested in buying his music though I won't say it'll never happen.

Testament

My very first thrash metal show and it was pretty good. Odd to say perhaps but it wasn't loud enough or the guitars weren't well miked so the solos were buried and blurred in the overall sound. But there were times where they did cut thru and man were they good players. Best of all was the drummer whom the Cookie Monster singer called "the atomic clock." Double bass drums sounded like there were eight bass drums with four players. And we had great seats on the balcony rail with a perfect view of the band safe from the moshing mania below.

I saw Testament, I think it was in 2008, on a bill with Judas Priest, Motorhead and the RJD lineup of Black Sabbath.

Pretty good.

Last Friday night went to the Garden for Red Hot Chili Peppers.Haven't seen them since Woodstock 94. Hot really a fan of them but promised a friend tickets and am always a fan of Flea. The RHCP haven't changed in the fact they are high energy. Flea is all over the floor and puts on a great show along with Josh Klinghoffer (guitarist last 10 years). Anthony Kiedis still can sing but was limited with a hurt foot. They started off with some older songs before playing a number of new songs that were still good. Happy they did their cover of Higher Ground.

Musical Box @3/5 @ Ridgefield playhouse, CT
The Black Show


I've seen the Musical Box a few times as the perform old 70's Genesis live shows. This being the black show they did plenty of my favorite Genesis songs. I always have a had time with the singer so tend to focus on the musicians. This time we had seats in front of the guitarist (aka Hackett) It was amazing me the little snippets he does thru out the show. Cinema Show, The Musical Box and Supper's Ready nailed it! No Pictures but here they are in 2003 Irving Plaza

Richard Ashcroft 03/27/17 @ T5

I've seen Richard's solo act a few times over the past 17 years so oddly wasn't expecting to be surprised. However, new band and a different setup led to extended songs with cool jams. They did alot of the new album but still plenty of Verve classics. Great version of Space and time.

LCD Soundsystem @ the new Brooklyn Steel Venue.
Finally got a chance to see LCD Soundsystem reunion (yeah like tthis was never going to happen). Been a big fan since seeing them at a party at NYC. I was there for their final show at MSG few years ago. I got there a bit early so decided to go for the front section which I knew would be a dance crowd. After waiting forever, the 8 piece band came on playing various instruments and electronics often switching them up. Was right about the dance crowd they didn't stop for the full 2 hour show.

ZOMBIES - Chicago, Thalia Hall (April 13, 2017)

What can I say? I should have gone both nights. My range of opportunities to see one of the greatest albums in creation lovingly executed live by the living 4 of the original 5 (expertly assisted by a crew of magnificent voices and instruments) is dwindling, and as I look at people in other cities having their moments with this concert/these people, it seems like the type of experience I should be hoarding.

There's people here who may have not seen this particular tour yet, so I'm loathe to go into any great detail, but...utterly sublime and moving.

We brought our youngest (James, 7) cause he loves the Zombies (and live music) with the strength of someone 4x his age. He got to meet Chris White and Hugh Grundy afterwards (both lovely men - Grundy gave the boy loads of advice about drumming), and we got to visit and hang out with a dear friend of mine who plays in this particular production.

Linda Manzer made the 42 string guitar. She also made this for my brother to use. And one day he might be able to afford to buy it.

Last nite show was another night at the new Brooklyn venue, Brooklyn Steel. One thing I noticed this time the sound system is grade A although the band had some problems with tuning and it was a bit hot. The Decemberists are a band I've been a fan since 2002 after reading they play sea shanty songs and going to see them live they hooked me. They have put out numerous albums since and I love almost all of it. The show started off strong as its the 10th anniversary of Crane Wife they opened with The Crane Wife 3 and Island two epic favorites. Lots of proggy organ elements with sea folklore and great hooks. They also did The Gymnast, High Above Ground from their fist album I'd not seen them play since 04. Olivia Chaney, singer and keyboard harpsichord, joined the band (Colin announced they were working on side project) for a new song "The Queen of Hearts" which I liked. I thought after that they lost the magic before ending the set with "This Is Why We Fight". They then did the 18 minute long EP The Tain.

The opening act was Julien Baker. Interesting new singer/songwriter of the sad type. She had some stage presence and her lyrics were interesting. With a nice voice we will see. Been listening to her 2015 album today she has a new one too.
