Someone at one of the stages gave me free passes to cover the rest of the festival. She is so sweet. She'll put me in the pit and get me backstage if she can.  She knew I was ornery...  I'm going to see Chvrches tomorrow night.  

CHVRCHES are a great band. Enjoy!

Jesus Jones just finished.  They sounded great.  I did not know they are from the U.K.  I forgot they were playing.  Great surprise.

So were they "right here, right now" when you saw them? 😉

(I did always like that song. Additional "Fun Fact Of The Day" - the band members of Jesus Jones attended (in later years, not at the same time) the same English private school as the original members of Genesis. Strange but true...)

Si". I really enjoyed them.  I was impressed.  They also had a full house, which showed up for them and  then most left for other stages.   They were very good.  

The Head and the Heart:  Abbreviated set, which I expected.  They did a lot off the new album, Living Mirage.   They opened with the title song.  It was the first date of the new tour for the new album. Third time at Summerfest.  GREAT audience.  It was a sing along throughout the Oasis-clearly the hottest side stage act Friday night..  I didn't even think about The Killers playing, at the same time,  on the same grounds.  John has new moves and they are smooth.  He's very subtle.  Charity sounded amazing and looked great.  She lost a lot of weight.  The audience did not scream every time she sang, which was refreshing.  (you can't hear her when they do)  Kenny is back on keyboards, which makes us diehards ecstatic. The crowd was also cool with not talking, etc.  Very enjoyable show. The whole band was clearly enjoying the festival and crowd.  It was a nice tease for multiple dates in September.

I'm too tired to go to The Strumbellas tonight.  Free attendance was given to everyone, and anyone, until three or so this afternoon. I badly wanted to go see them and it's the last night of Summerfest.  sigh   I can't chance not getting to Dawes in Bloomington, Illinois, on Saturday.  GA-I should see quite a few people I know. That shall be my next concert.

Not exactly going to a gig tonight. BUT, I'm going to the cinema for a screening of The Cure's 40th anniversary show at Hyde Park last summer, which incidentally I was at! Does that count as going to the same gig twice? Just a shame they didn't film Editors or Interpol (who were both supporting).

Three times, last night, I had to duck thinking Taylor was going to hit me in the face with his guitar.  I lost it during A Little Bit of Everything.  Six shows, since my dog died, I've made it through that song without getting emotional.  'It's the death of my first dog' got me this time.  I looked at the floor and mouthed, "F@#k'.  I tried to hide it.  Dang.  It was pretty cool even though I did not want it to happen.  I saw a bunch of people I know.  I met others.  I let people who were shorter stand in front of me-one would think I handed them the world. One girl was quite short and young.  It was her first show.  She almost cried.  I was hoping they'd give her a set list and they did!!  Great evening.

Aug 3-Codfish Hollow-Dawes-my next concert.
