    Just thinking to myself. Back in the day, when everybody was smoking (often indoors) you would have thought there would have been more big hair band explosions.
    Heh.. I was torn between the sold out of hairspray joke and "nobody light a match!"

    FTR, I never had new wave hair, but did have punk rock hair for years. Black, almost white, yellow, orange, and briefly red. There are a few pics somewhere, but they predate digital.

    Their name came from a Stranglers song, so they couldn't have been all bad.

    We went to the Wailers at the Belly Up Sunday. Only one original member, more or less a cover band.
    Still had a good time!

    I met a girl who was really excited that I knew Merzbow and had seen Boris sorry before meeting her. That was a sign

    Oh dear God.. His band played here at The Durham Bulls Ballpark a couple years ago on the 4th of July. Ya, he is horrible! His band was pretty tight and probably well paid but his vocals?? God chimed in on that. About 3 songs in to the first set a giant bolt of lightning took out the power grid hahahahaha! Wicked storms raged for an hour. We went home.. being that we live about 2 miles from the ballpark.
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    Quaid is playing close to home, along with Kevin Bacon, with his brother, and Jeff Daniels. Maybe we have to start a new thread that is wtf is up with B hollywood actors playing mediocre rock stars on stage.

    I don't know why I am surprised by this, but I am...

    If cover and tribute bands weren't enough, you can also see tribute comedians. This guy performs as Robin Williams:

    OK. I'll come out of the closet. Seen a few rumors shows and they are absolutely fantastic. young, entergic, in smallish venues, at $20 about 1/10th of what it costs to see the real thing. but the kicker was local band MoonTower. Think several towns have a moontower but I was blown away by this one. Like stepping into the jukebox from the skatepark about 1978. Some of it was that they were playing in a larger hall known for good accoustics, through rumor's sound equipment. thier setlist

    sweet Emotion (missed came in late)
    People Talk
    LaGrange
    R & R Hoocheechoo
    Voodoo child (dude's guitar & pedal work was unreal. note for note)
    Tiny Dancer
    One Way Out
    Fox on the run
    Never been any reason
    Stranglehold (again unreal guitar work)
    "Can't you see..."
