    My buddy and I thought about taking a bladder pool to the Phish shows we went to in June that had onsite camping but quickly realized that all the wookies (tour-hippies) would just want to bathe in it. No thanks!

    Rockfest is probably THE place to take a pool...

    Heard this tour has been great. Have fun, but beware the Rockfesters! I'd suggest a day pass. Who knows what goes on there overnight...

    Maiden has always put on a great show, it will be nice to see them again live after too many years without.

    I recently got tickets for Cake at Red Rocks. In all the years I have lived here, I have only ever seen one Red Rocks show, so I'm definitely looking forward to this. I've never even gone to a Film on the Rocks (although my cousin's HS graduation was at Red Rocks.)

    Yesterday I bought 4 tickets to the Eric Church show in Mankato in September. 2nd row from the stage on the floor. The last show was incredible, and this one should be just as good! Justin Moore and Kip Moore are opening for EC, so that should be pretty good too.

    Big concert tonight! Eric Church with Brantley Gilbert. I've been looking forward to this one since the day it was announced. This show is going to be incredible.

    wow. some of mine are sooo long ago.

    myfirst the Turtles and American Breed (I was a little girl)

    my best Patti Smith at a bar in East Lansing. up close and personal just before she got famous

    the rest Gordon Lightfoot
    Bob Seger
    Allman Brothers
    Glenn Frey
    Bette Midler
    Tina Turner
    Diana Ross
    Elton John (I'm thinking I was hanging around with a bunch of gay men for awhile!)
    Barry Manilow
    Doobie Brothers
    Ray Charles (amazing!)
    Ella Fitzgerald (she was very old and had to be helped on stage - but once the spotlight hit - she still had it)
    Michael Bolton (I'm sorry, forgive me)

    the worst Roger Whittaker (whitaker? whitman? lots of whistling. painful)

    I'll think of more, I'm sure. what's kinda sad about my list : only one of these was one I picked out. all the rest were friends asking me to go. and looking back I hated crowds even in college. all the parking nonsense big arena nonsense ticket nonsense. rather go to a little club and have a drink and listen to someone who will never be famous.

    that said ... really really wish I'd seen (or would like to see) ... Zeppelin, the old Fat Elvis, Sinatra, Eminem, U2, Coldplay.

    I've also been to a bunch of comedy show. they all were stinky. TV and movies can make people really really funny.

    Rochester Hills yuppie? Never.

    I grew up across the street from Meadowbrook

    20 years ago today, I took a first date up to Minneapolis to see U2 at the Target Center (from LaCrosse, WI). Ate at the Loon Cafe, went to the show and rolled back into LaCrosse around 3:00 am.

    A couple of years later, I had the good sense to marry that date. Poor girl...

    I'm going to see Arch/Matheos in May in Connecticut. Definitely looking forward to that. I was never a big Fates Warning fan but this project is fantastic.


    Also, I'll be visiting the left coast over the next two weeks as my band opens for The Quill.

    Phish Summer Tour announced.

    After a disappointing decision not to play either Deer Creek or Alpine Valley last summer, they'll be back this year.

    There's one week of my summer mapped out!
