Nice Bruuuce setlist. Trapped is a great tune and American Skin is one of my all-time faves that I've yet to see him perform live. Nice to see he hasn't retired it yet and maybe he'll do it in TX if he makes it this way later in the year....

VH... sounds pretty solid too! Might have to try and check that out. Pretty sure they're playing TX, although not in my town....

Hey B. Kinder, how was the opening band for Radiohead? They are from Stillwater, Oklahoma, my old stomping ground. Just curious if they were any good. They must have some talent to be picked up by Radiohead as support. :)

Glad to see Van Halen are throwing in a few shifts in the set list. I hope they play a ton of new songs when they hit Tulsa.

Friday November 30 - Simple Minds with Devo & The Church as support acts.
Still waiting patiently to see if Van Halen will make it here later in the year as well - apparently negotiations are happening at the moment. The only time they've made it to our shores was with Gary Cherone.

I made the long road trip to see Tom Petty in Albuquerque back in April. I'd rate it "not to be missed" but it looks like tomorrow's show in Mannheim (Germany) is sold out and is the last date listed on the tour schedule.
Other than the occasional local band or jamming/recording with friends, I don't have anything else lined up for this year. Maybe I'll become aware of something I really want to see.

Simce last posting I've seen My Morning Jacket (Dawes supporting); Angelique Kidjo/Vusi Mahlasela; Dawes (headlining); City & Colour (with Bahamas supporting); The Maccabbees; Patti Austin; The Audreys; Ben Vereen; Lady GaGa.

All very different and at venues of different sizes. Lady Gaga is a total theatrical experience but my preference is for the singer-songwriter experience. Angelique Kidjo is a ball of energy who has so much fun on stage and gets the whole audience revved up. I would see her again in a flash. Ben Vereen and Patti Austin show their experience by being so generous with their audience and making you feel that they're singing just for you - top shows. The Audreys should be worldwide stars - brilliant songs sung with flawless grace. Listen to "Comfort Me" or "Falling Down" at

Dawes are the band I keep going back to. Although they get compared to Jackson Brown and others of that ilk, I think they have something fresh to offer. I love Nothing Is Wrong

Coming up I've got Judith Durham, The Shins, Jack White, The Beach Boys, Kenny Rogers/Glen Campbell, Emmylou Harris - and hopefully Mumford & Sons/Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros.

Saw The Church / Devo / Simple Minds just over an hour ago. The Church delivered a brilliant 30 minute set. Musically, Devo didn't have enough quality tracks to fill an hour but were so much fun that it didn't matter. Simple Minds played way too loud for that venue. Jim Kerr's voice was so lost in it all alot of the time. Kerr is a very entertaining & engaging individual. His only downfall is that he does the 'famous rock-star' cliche of regularly holding the mic out to the audience to encourage them to sing verses & especially choruses in his place.
