It will be very interesting to see what they do. I saw them on the Melon Collie and the Infinite Sadness tour. I waited until the day of the show and we got front row. They were amazing. I hope they stay together. Today is one of my favorite songs. Yet again, I am envious but very happy you enjoyed the show and had so much fun. You do realize you are Steelers territory and soon we shall be rivals, yes? Enjoy my grace while you can! ? J/K but I did live part of my childhood in the shadow of Lambeau Field so it's on, dmway. ? Much to my surprise, my next show is Dawes this coming Wednesday. They are playing in a local record store. It is a stripped down acoustic set. Earlier today, I made sure I'm getting into it. After the set, they are sitting at a table and signing Cds/Albums. I'm beyond excited. I already met the bassist when he was having a smoke backstage and he said hello. They know me and others because we are at so many of their shows and stand to be right up front. Meeting them in an official capacity is going to be weird.but I am psyched. They are also opening for Jeff Lynne's ELO at the United Center later that evening. I put out feelers for a cheap, cheap ticket to that show. I'm going to go broke but I don't care. It's music and I've never seen ELO. Two Dawes shows in one day? That is as good as it gets for me with music. I cannot believe I'm going to see them play in a record store. I shall have my fix sooner than I thought. I cannot sleep! I saw the Pumpkins on the same tour (unfortunately, after the accidental OD incident in NYC - so, Matt Walker on drums instead of Jimmy Chamberlin) - this was the first time I have been able to see them since then. Yes, I hope they stay together too. I was reminded how much I missed them seeing them again... While many of my relatives are Steelers fans, I am not. In fact, I was overjoyed when the Packers beat the Steelers in Super Bowl XLV. I grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia (but I'm not an Eagles fan either; however, I was very happy that the Eagles won the most recent SB). Enjoy your double Dawes! Back on topic: my next show is Interpol in a tiny club in Philly. I can't wait! (Stay tuned - I just got a ticket to a bonus show for August today... ) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
