I looked at tickets for an upcoming Michael Bublé concert in Detroit (Little Caesar's Arena - the hockey arena). Sitting in the rafters was $200 a ticket. Main floor in the back $500. Top end tickets were $1,500+.

:fk Wait a second ... we are talking about Michael Bublé, not somebody that the 15-50 year old demographic want to listen to and see. :fk

So I made my decision on the concert :fuckall

I wonder what the kiss farewell tour will cost?

I'm not interested but keep hearing it advertised on the radio because they will be at the amphitheatre about 2 miles from my house in August. Depending on wind direction we can usually sit on our deck and hear everything clearly when the concerts are going on in the summer.

That's funny on my last podcast episode the guests were talking about seeing Kiss on the farewell tour 18 years ago or something.

BTW look up "Cola Town Underground" on your podcast thing if you wanna check out our stuff

Beef is this a day of mourning for you? 50 years ago today was the last live performance of the Beatles.

Gather round children and I will tell you about the Beatles. I think Fish is referring to the 1969 rooftop concert from "Let It Be". But Beatles fans do not mourn such an occasion. The Beatles ceased to be a live performance act following their show at Candlestick Park in 1966. They made a collective decision to stop performing live because 1) the general hysteria that accompanied them wherever they went b) the difficulty of hearing themselves while playing to huge audiences using 1960's audio PA technology and 3) the increasing sophistication of their musical arrangements which now extended beyond guitar, bass and drums quartet sound.

The actual final performance was a hastily conceived one-off. It almost didn't happen, they sounded loose and sloppy, and the police eventually shut them down after a few songs. They kind of hated each other at this point anyways. The Beatles are not like the Grateful Dead. Live performance is not their legacy. They had Beatlemania on the first couple tours but their legacy is all the work they did at Abbey Road studios. The end of touring is generally regarded as the beginning of the Beatles' peak era. :school

I might go see The Descendents tonight. I've outgrown that kind of music, but they were one of my favorites when I was a teenager. and I'm bachelor tonight...

Other concerts coming up on my list: TEEN, Spiritualized, Beck + Cage the Elephant + Spoon, Chicano Batman, Tyler Childers

The rooftop concert was their way to put an end to the torturous recording session they were doing which was all a television stunt. They were supposed to be filmed making a documentary of recording an album, which was to be a TV special, but like you said they were all ready to quit, and they weren't getting anything done. George supposedly quit, and had to be talked back into coming back. They brought Billy Preston in which kind of saved the project, as he was the cool head in the room. They didn't even finish the recording session. In order to do something, they went on the roof and jammed a few songs for the cameras. Then they broke up. After the fact, Phil Spector was hired to finish the album, which became Let it Be.

I've been trying to post an update from the Pixies / Weezer show I went to tonight, with a pic of my backstage meet and greet after show pass for Pixies but the image posting I can't seem to to get working :(

Anyway, the show was great, but Pixies left early so we had no backstage visit :(

Went to "Hamilton" yesterday. Yes, I know, it has been around for going on 3 years but it takes a while for stuff to work its way to the Motor City.

1. I really enjoyed it. Outstanding.
2. If anyone goes, brush up on Alexander Hamilton ahead of time (like I did) so everything makes sense
3. Save your money now to afford tickets. Even though it is an "old" show, prices are really high

The one thing that sort of surprised me was the audience. It was like looking in a mirror. Lots of old white people there to watch an all brown/black/yellow cast sing/rap about A.H. Then again, who else could afford to go to see the show?

How much were tickets if you don't mind? I can get "season" tickets to the "Broadway season" at Norfolk Chrysler hall for $260 and in the 2019-2020 season it is 6 shows.
The lion king
Rent
Hamilton
Something's rotten
Finding Neverland
(One more not listed?)

The season tickets guarantee me a ticket to each of these shows at no additional cost. I've seen a few Broadway/off Broadway shows on tour and liked them. Although the two I saw were spamalot and avenue q.

Went to Shaky Knees last weekend. Too much fun. I’d say the best was Tame Impala. After three days of partying and breathing second hand cheeba all day, when that band hit on Sunday night with the lazers and the video effectz it was about perfect.

So I spent the morning checking out Tame Impala, who seem to be huge. I don't get it, at all. What I mean is I don't get how people listen to this and have it mean something to them. It sounds to me like music to shop for skinny jeans in a fashionable store. Like ambient music. In other words I find it so boring. The songwriting is boring and then the sonics are boring too. I checked out the debut album and it mostly sounds like a bunch of weak ass jamming, and then they hired some hip-ass engineer to mix in a bunch of sonic grit and lo-fi hipster tones. But even then it's not very ear candy-licious at all.

A lot of what you day has truth to it. But I like it. I’m also pretty sure that the albums are just one guy who records and plays everything himself at his surf side house in Australia.

Tears for Fears were also really good, and Beck was fun, if a bit cheesy. Interpol were great sounding though the singer seemed to struggle a bit. Sharon Von Etten was great. Check out her new album.

Here’s a clip from Tame Impala from the show
