When son was into both punk and photography. Souixie and the Banchies, Beacon Theater, 1985.

 

 

Hah! Pretty sure I was at that show. If it was the one where she barely made eye contact with the audience and indulged in zero onstage patter. (Maybe that was all her shows.)

Drive By Truckers' Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley playing acoustic in a friend of a friend's backyard for 150 people. A night I won't soon forget. 3 hours of alternating songs with many stories about the Truckers and Patterson and Cooley's relationship over their 33 years of playing together. Throw in their drinking several beers, 3/4 of a bottle of tequila from the bottle, rants about Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions and my friend who invited us winning the raffle which was a guitar signed by the two of them. Hard to go see anything else after this.

I like house concerts. The artists are so much more at east, it makes for a great show. I frequent a few different places for these.

 

Though this one sounds larger than the ones I go to, which geneally top out at 80 - 100 people.

So I lied. Easy to see Anders Osborne doing his solo acoustic thing at City Winery. Played a number of my favorite songs including Peace:

Janelle Monáe at the MSG theater last night was life affirming. Billy Joel's 100th MSG performance happening st the same time made for some humorous visuals as attendees queued up to get into their venues.

Did not see (due to sightlines and her height) but heard Chaka Khan in Newport Beach last week. She remains a second soprano with a skosh of funk. Very nice funk. Set was similar to this with maybe another instrumental for a midset costume change and breather (she is 65). https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/chaka-khan/2018/benton-county-fairgrounds-kennewick-wa-2be83c0a.html

Too bad the stage was not elevated for those of us in the rear.

 

John Pizzarelli Trio at Catalina's. The man is a master of the seven string guitar and his patter between songs puts others to shame. How it should be done. Seems to have grown an impressive two-tone beard.

We went to see Patti Smith doing the show for an Audible recording at the Minetta Lane theatre last night. I had the sobering realization that the last show that I saw her do was 40 years ago...She can still sing as strong as then,probably more easily,without a loud band to project over. Her son Jackson plays nice guitar. The show was a combo of reading,songs and self deprecating patter. My only wish was that the evening had been more rowdy,but we are sedate old farts now ;)
