I had absolutely no idea that Donovan was still touring. That's awesome.

He has come back for the 50th anniversary of Sunshine Superman.

His show was two sets performed sitting cross-legged on the stage with his acoustic guitar "Kelly" as the only accompaniment to his voice. We were in the front row, Menolly almost directly in front of him (a general-admission venue; Menolly waited in line all day to be first in the door) and myself and Dam-sel to the right of her.

Having seen great storyteller Al Stewart the night before, our expectations were high...and Donovan lived up to them. A great show.

Even if she cannot post the extensive video clips here that she put on FB, Menolly ought to share more of the experience. Me, I am one of those dinosaurs who watches, claps, and sings along where appropriate. If I try messing with my phone to capture the experience, I miss the experience.

There may be a koan in that lesson...

I don't know if this will work for those not on FB.

Donovan encore: Atlantis (part one)

Atlantis (part two)

Story intro to Mello Yello

Mello Yello

I also have clips of Jennifer Juniper and Sunshine Supetman, if linking works and anyone would care to see them.

Also, I asked on some photos I posted on FB, but no one has answered with certainty yet. What is that by the tuning pegs on Kelly? Is it a bizarre pickup? I saw no other means of amplification on her.

Looks like it only works for FB-havers. I can see the description and a still image with a 'play' button, but when I hit the button it takes me to the sign-in screen.

I logged in to the ticket-buying thingy to get Iron Maiden tickets, and noticed that Coheed & Cambria will be here(ish) next week. I missed them last year and the year before and maybe the year before that because I have lost all track of time, but I do know where I will be next Friday.

(And I will probably still get tickets for Iron Maiden, but that's still a few months off and I'm a little distracted right now.)

The Book Of Souls is so good, I can't miss them this time around. And with Ghost as the opener.....Money well spent.

I should have just bought both - I know I'm going to get tickets, I just hate getting to the venue they're at. (Though it's where I saw them last time, and it's decent as far as ginormous venues go.)

Been there, done that, got a ginormous banner instead of a t-shirt. Not sure what I was thinking, though the one they had on display really didn't look that big. Director Donner is not impressed.



The show was pretty impressive, though I found the video screens they added to the background a bit distracting. I'd resisted looking up the setlist - knowing they were playing their third album in entirety but not knowing what the encores would be. Good Apollo Vol. 1 is probably their strongest album overall - no filler. They ended with the title song from their second album (In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3), which would probably be the song I'd take with me if I was stranded on a desert island with only one song. It's a powerful song if you follow the story behind their whole rock opera. It's a powerful song if you don't follow the story, and it also has a lot of personal meaning for me, and it nearly always makes me cry when they play it as an encore. Not this time, but it was close. The opening chords just hit me right in the emotional center.

We've got tickets for Red Hot Chili Peppers next month, 5th row center! Can't wait!

If you haven't seen them play lately, here's a recent video. Check out the light show! I've never seen anything like floating, dancing lights that drop down from the ceiling over the crowd. I like it better than lasers.

SD and I attended the Moody Blues tour for the 50th Anniversary of Days of Future Passed last night. I posted about it on Facebook, and my posts are public, so if you can access FB, feel free to see the bits and pieces of the show which I gathered.

On my way to see OK Go at the Moore Theater in downtown Seattle. All I know of them is a few of their innovative hit videos, and the recent TED Talk they did on creating the videos.

I'm looking forward to seeing something new and unusual tonight!

Taking my 8 year old boy to the Aquabats in October. I've never seen them, but I am definitely excited.

The Aquabats show was so good that I fear I have blown expectations for all other shows for the kid. The opening acts were even especially good.

He went as an Aquabat for Halloween. A few people recognized, and loved it.


Today I got tickets for the tippity top of my band bucket list, as least the top of bands that are still together and not missing members due to death. Yep, the Residents have been at the top of the list ever since I finally saw the Pogues a little over 10 years ago. I can't wait, and have no expectations other than it will be weird and probably disturbing but unlike anything I have ever seen before. And they are playing in a little club, so it should also be intimate.
