Greg Holden was amazing last night, he's got a really tight backing band behind him. Really great gig.

Just saw Muse in Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and D.C. ... a bit bittersweet because it was my last time seeing them on this tour but what a way to finish. Pitt was my friend's 100th gig and the band played Fury (amazing B-side they never play) and dedicated it to her. Philly was special because it's my "hometown" and first place I saw them live ... plus via a radio contest I got to watch soundcheck which was amazing, esp. since the band invited us onstage after and I got to meet Matt Bellamy (I won't unleash the full lahar of fangirling since this isn't a Muse forum ... but ... !!!). D.C. was my 30th gig and a good way to wrap up the tour for me ... had so much ridiculous fun with friends, which is pretty much as important as the shows themselves.
Got plenty of other stuff to look forward to though ... all of this is assuming my new temporary job doesn't get in the way:
-Spring Standards tomorrow night at The Queen in Delaware (if I feel better ... sick today)
-Titus Andronicus Sept. 26 at Arden Gild Hall in Delaware
-Either Biffy Clyro in D.C. or Bastille in Philly on Sept. 29 ... I love Biffy more but I do also really want to see Bastille ... only seen them open in a stadium; plus I'll see Biffy in Philly
-Biffy Clyro at The Trocodero in Philly on Oct. 10 ... really psyched to see one of my favorite bands at one of the first venues I ever saw a show at
Then there are all my Frank shows. Going to be tough to work around my work schedule but I'm part-time so I'm hoping I won't have to lose many of my plans.
2011: 8/26, 28, 11/4(x2); 2012: 2/21, 22, 23, 24, 3/9, 11, 12, 18, 9/8, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 28, 29, 30; 2013: 6/5, 6, 7(x2), 8, 7/26, 31, 8/1, 2, 10/4, 5, 11/16, 19, 29(X2). 2014: 6/4. 2015: 3/8, 9(x2), 5/12, 13, 14, 15. 18

Dude. That's awesome!!! My brother gave me Absolution in 2003 after he accidentally bought it (his friend said to check out THE USED, not MUSE), put it on and it fucking blew my mind. Later, so did the Used haha...
Bellamy can freaking SING. We saw them in Toronto and HOLY SHIT. Just sat there frozen and mesmerized. My friend hates their songs but went to their concert because "I dunno, I feel like he should still get money because he's really good."
So cool that you got to go to the soundcheck and meet them and shiz. *high five*
Good luck with the others!

EDIT:...entirely unrelated, but you are from Delaware.

Hence...(you have to read this joke out loud)

If Mrs. Ippi wears a blue dress, and Miss Ourri wears a green dress, what colour dress will Dela wear?

....

IDAHO, Alaska!

If I get banned from the forum, it was worth it. One joke, five states, no laughter...*hambones*

Saw City & Colour last night. They were great, but the highlight for me was the opening act...Lucy Rose! She and her band were absolutely amazing! I recommend giving her a listen. If you have heard her before, what do you think?

Saw Cory Branan last night.

The venue got moved, the show got moved later. Doors were initially at 8 and got moved to 9. Some people left because of that. (WTF, it was a Saturday night but oh well.) The venue had sound issues. Lots and lots of sound issues and I suspect due to the move they were sound checking on the fly.

That said, damn he puts on a good show. I was standing close enough (due to sound problems) that he almost smacked me with his guitar but holy shit the energy in that room was amazing. He asked for requests (he played Corner and Girl Named Go for me) and I was blown away. Because of the last minute switches and so forth, there were maybe 30 people there. Sad, really, cause it was a helluva show. He played some new things that are making me hang out for his new album.

Jen Buxton opened for him, and she's one of those women who's voice makes me jealous but her stage personality makes me love her. She's another excellent singer songwriter, although I don't think she travels.(Her bio says she's shared a stage with Frank? Probably Blues Fest.) Also Pinch Hitter, a banjo duo who had the very worst sound issues. I suspect they were really good but the sound was frustratingly bad. When miked, they sounded like someone was murdering the banjo player from Deliverance with an axe and harsh language. When not miked, they couldn't be heard over the background noise of the bar downstairs, and I was practically sitting on top of them. Such s shame, what I could here was really good. Half the crowd had to yell at the other half to shut the fuck up though. People annoy me, so rude!

They all played like it was a full house, the energy was great (after Pinch Hitter suffered so badly) and a good time was had by all. My hangover is nearly gone, too!

His major success was writing a song called Home, that the winner of last year's American Idol used as their lead off single. He sang an acoustic version of it at the gig I saw, introducing it as "i wasn't going to play this, but this is the song that changed my life".

This, ultimately, is the fan favourite http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X2h5M0YiC9o
