    Would one have to watch Wilco to get to Sleater-Kinney, or are Sleater-Kinney on first, so one can leave after their set :p
    Sorry. Wilco are on my "bands I just don't get" list.

    Well hey ya never know, a live show is sometimes what makes one finally 'get it' :D ... but yeah S-K are the openers. I'll be there for both and loving it, as well as the excellent food trucks around the rear perimeter of the field down by the river and great draft beer selection. Always a good night at TP.

    You're right about live shows - it helps seeing what a band/artist are really about in their natural habitat. I've tried listening to several Wilco records, but it's always a bit "yeah, it's ok I guess, can I play something else now?" Sleater-Kinney on the other hand - picked up "The Hot Rock" in a clearance sale way back when and realised I'd stumbled on a gem :D

    We have a (mostly) outside beer bar along the Monon Trail here in Indy and they have solo/duo acoustic shows a couple of nights a week.

    Can't believe that it's closing in on a year ago, but I saw a few shoegaze bands in Philly early winter.
    Ringo Deathstar with Blushing and Lovelorn (a local band)
    I don't get out for bands much anymore, but I sure miss having that option

    I don't go to big concerts very often. San Francisco is about 90 minutes away and comes with attendant stress of big city driving and parking and venues in sleazy neighborhoods. I guess the last thing I saw in SF was Los Lobos at the Fillmore in February.

    There had been a fairly active club scene in Felton and Santa Cruz, which are about 30 minutes from here, and generally speaking I'd see SOMETHING at least every 3 months or so.

    However, I would have included open mic (I never go to those, although I had a secret plan to try to hoodwink a friend or two into doing something like that).

    I live in the sticks, but I'm 10 minutes from a venue the that's the summer home of the nyc ballet, Philadelphia Orchestra. I've seen Miles, Neil, Dead, Clapton, Dylan, SRV, CSN, Steely Dan, Jefferson Airplane, Lionel Hampton, Mel Torme, Wilson Pickett, Dave Brubeck, and on and on and on. All right down the road. Not this year, though...

    She's the real deal. Mid-60s Strat, Tube Screamer, BF Super Reverb, talent, and a lifetime of practice. I saw her play in Buffalo, NY two Winters ago.

    Duke Robilard at a honky tonk bar in Buffalo, NY last December.

    It was terrible. Duke played far below his ability and ruined any flow by messing around between songs. We left about 25-30 minutes into the first set. The two tickets were a waste of money and a trip into the city.

    Saturday night, outdoors at a winery, The Steel Woods from Nashville. Very good Southern Rock, a few songs that you might expect, but a half dozen real 'keepers' (as Tom Waits would say finding a gold nugget).

    Watch for Scott Ballantine and Sandra Faye. They're a super excellent acoustic duo and she sings, too. They play all over the North side.
