me too! couldn't tell which street & think I was heading in the right direction but then saw a cab & opted for that. he promptly got a bit lost too in the narrow streets round the back of the venue. I was near the door with Ann who was wearing a cap.

I was at Roskilde last weekend. Lots of great music (Kris Kristofferson, DakhaBrakha, Metallica, Kraftwerk, Jonathan Wilson, John Grant), but the highlight for me were Henry Rollins' spoken word performances. I went to three of the four he did during the festival. Each performance was an hour long and they were all entirely different. I kind of knew that Henry Rollins was a good guy, but because his music had always been a bit too loud for me I had never paid much attention. Want to find out more now, read his books, maybe even try his music again...

I am at Tramlines in Sheffield. Currently watching Theme Park who are so awesome they have led me to posting on the forum. (I.e. I got bored after two songs). Looking forward to Jim Jones Revue later on though!

Three Bruce gigs in six days (Limerick, Cork, Belfast). Quite overwhelming; there simply is nothing better.
Over the three shows, including acoustic pre-show performances, I heard a total of 103 songs, some of which I had never witnessed live ('The price you pay', 'Hearts of stone', 'Nebraska'). Some songs were repeated of course, but 66 different ones all the same. Mind-dazzling.
Highlight for me was 'Jungeland', which I had not heard live for years, and never before with Jake Clemmons on sax.
This is one of the encores - a great cover of the Isley Brothers' "Shout".

Excited to have gotten tickets to Panic! at the Disco at a tiny venue in a few weeks. Tickets sold out in 5 minutes all over the US cities, but we got lucky! Fun band to watch. Then seeing Rancid in September. Then FEST in October. Then 4 Frank shows in November. My friend calls it "the Frank Turner stalker tour". Whatever.
shows? 90 so far...

Tramlines got a lot better. Wet Nuns are my new favourite band. Great songs and entertaining to watch. Especially when the drummer stood on his drumkit, got stuck and the tech had to pick him up and carry him back round to his stool and the way they dealt with the food heckler. Tall Ships were also great as were Broken Hands and See Emily Play. We also got to see the Doritos mariachi band. We finished the night off with Catfish and the Bottlemen. They are from Sheffield and it was one of those rowdy, sweaty gigs but held in a posh-looking bar, rather than a dark venue with an inch thick layer of sweat on the walls, which is where it should have been held. This made the gig even more interesting, with the crowdsurfers pretty much destroying the light fittings as there wasn't a high ceiling.

I caught a local punk band called Liberation Front at the weekend. Pretty good, too, doing a free show on Martin Place here in Sydney raising food for the homeless. They had a proper, although very tiny, circle pit and everything.

Made me long for my misspent yoof. I sat safely at the back and tried not the be That Old Person and failed fairly miserably. Great show though, they were really into it, so I bought their EP off iTunes and have had it in heavy rotation since.
