Live Music

I went to see The Professor play with his new band this week, "The Durty Nellys". It was their first gig and it went well for a first gig. The Professor looked HOT playing the drums . He kept up the tempo and held the band together. I had an awesome time and everyone in the place seemed to be enjoying themselves and the band. They will play again at the Irish Fair in August not to mention in my basement weekly :)

More live music that I am going to see.



Bought these tickets today at The Electric Fetus. I hadn't been there in probably 20 years. It has evolved into the cool, everything store. Not only do they have vinyl but it they sell cool earrings, clothing, candles, incense and everything else you could possibly imagine.

I went there to buy tickets for the Los Lobos concert. They are my all time favorite band. I see them every time that they come to town. I don't think I have missed a year. We have seen them in all different venues. I think my favorite venue was either First Avenue or The (old) Guthrie.

"I Walk Alone" is one of their favorites to do in a concert. It really gets everyone rocking!



The other song that I love to hear them do live is "Cinnamon Girl".



Now these aren't originals but they are classics and they are such a great band that they do it all!


While at the Electric Fetus, I couldn't help but notice other shows that were coming to town.

NEKO CASE!




I have never seen her in concert and within the last two years have really started to listen to her albums. I love all her stuff and now I am SOOOO excited that I have tickets to see her in person. First Ave. is a pretty good place to see her. The guy at the Fetus said, "gone are the days when you could see her at the Cedar"...yes, she won't come to a small venue like that again but First Ave is not like the Target Center or the Dome, it is still relatively small.

So, there you go. Live music ROCKS!

Pat- Good to hear from you. That is exactly where they got their name from! Right ON! Not everyone would know that. I hope to go to Ireland some day as I have roots there.
