too many shows!
so many shows going on and i can't afford them all, have to pick and choose. but if you like a band or performer and you have the chance go see them. live music is great. you never know when a band will break up or, unfortunately, someone will die. i missed link wray at the zoo bar for a niece's graduation party and he died shortly after that. i saw james brown at the casino a few months before he passed away. lee "scratch" perry is coming to the bourbon and he's a reggae legend and in his 70's. but i'm not sure it's in my budget and surprise left is playing that night for free at stransky park. crosby, stills, and nash are getting up there and they'll be at the pinewood bowl in august, as will my morning jacket and band of horses, a great 2 band show. really want to see the dum dum girls at the maha festival in omaha in august. their last lp was one of my favorites from last year. and sunday , the 27th of may, capitol punishment will have their volume 2 release party at the joyo. many bands, past and present, will be there, can't miss that. others i'm looking forward to are debbie davies at the zoo bar on the 30th and dale watson at the zoo in early june. lydia loveless is an opening act at the bourbon coming up, would like to see her again. best coast, dirty beaches, on and on.
