Re: Songs you don't play live anymore

I would love to hear "The Next Round" live sometime. To me, that song is so poignant. The lyrics are subtly powerful. I feel like I know those people in that song. I just adore it. You'll hear it eventually. He played it in Portland this past October. One of those older songs of his I was not famil...

Re: Salty Dog Cruise

As noted above, there are elevators on the boat so getting to all decks shouldn't be a problem. I know I saw a few people in wheelchairs on the boat and even on the beach (the cruise line has wheelchairs fitted with giant balloon tires that can be pushed around on the sand). But yeah, you should cal...

Re: Cruise Diary?

The Flogging Molly Cruise Shipmates group on Facebook has tons of pics, videos, and stories. It's a private group but anyone will get approved. But be forewarned. You will waste the better part of a day wading through it all (every minute worth it). And at the end, you will feel an irresistible urge...

Re: Koo Koo

I saw them open for Frank in Portland last Fall and went to the show not knowing what to think (based solely on the Cat Party video on youtube). The first few songs still had me wary. But then they came down on the floor and basically demanded that people engage. By the time they whipped out the rai...

Re: US Tour 2013

For those who've already seen shows on this leg of the tour, did you show up for koo koo kangaroo? How are they? Are they seriously the dinosaur stomp band that's on YouTube? I try not to shit on bands just because they're not my thing, but they just seem like a joke YouTube band. It's really odd t...

Re: Best gig you've ever seen??

Whew, this is a tough one. But here goes (in chron order): 1. Minor Threat. Their last (I believe) show at 9:30 in DC, where I grew up. I was 14. I think this may have bee my first real concert ever (although I think I might have convinced my folks to take to Clapton the year before). 2. Primus - Po...

Re: What albums should everyone listen to at least once?

Lots of great albums here, so I'll mention only a few that haven't already been listed. At least I don't think they've been listed (had a few this evening) . . . Mother Love Bone - Apple (IMHO, the first genuinely excellent grunge album and a huge boost to that whole genre of rock). Primus - Frizzle...

Re: Gigs in 2013?

Just added: Youngblood Hawke (3/10 at Hawthorne Theater) Fun (with Tegan & Sara) (8/29 at McMennamin's Edgefield) Kinda poppy, but like metalyellow, I've got young daughters. And they aren't nearly as, well, uninspiring as One Direction. The bands that is, not my daughters. I was totally hoping that...

Re: Dropkick Murphy's Recomendations

I'm don't know much about the Dropkicks. But when I find myself going to see a band I'm not very familiar with (and want to pick up an album or two to listen to before the show), I sometimes go to setlist.fm and look at their playlist history both over the past year as well as over the history of th...

Re: HMV and record shops

A little bit from everywhere. The last 5-6 albums I picked up were off bandcamp. I think 2 or 3 came with physical copies (rest were digital downloads only). Otherwise, I tend to frequent one of our local shops (Music Millennium or Everyday Music). I've also picked up more than a couple of discs at ...

Re: Gigs in 2013?

After closing out 2012 with a Larry & His Flask show, I've got the following on tap for 2013 so far: Red Fang (Melody Ballroom 2/17) Holiday Friends (Mississippi Studios 2/27) Frightened Rabbit (Hawthorne Theater 3/09) Flogging Molly (Roseland Theater 3/11) Fun.
