some pics from Friday night's fantastic Microchip League (MCL)/Robitiko Rejecto/Moskwa TV w/ Special guest UK Vision . .
And shame on Austin for not turning up. those that did show had a great time. UK Vision performed a very short (3 song) set, but it was the first time he's played live in 35 years - and he sounded incredible (and I made sure to tell him that). The new singer is a dead ringer vocals wise for the original singer, and I hope they continue to work together, it was so good.
It really was their 1st performance - the singer had an IPad taped to the mike stand for lyric reminders. But Houston is gonna *love* them tonight they were so good.
And MCL was also great, 1st time ever playing live in USA - opening with the well known version of New York (and closing the set with a different mixed version of the same song - which sounded good, but I prefer the original version). As expected with a "band" like Microchip League, it was mainly them behind a table toggling switches and mixing, rather than actually "playing" instruments. . but live vocals for most songs. and I giggled like hell (and loved it) when they played Moskwa TV's hit "Generator 7/8" using the vocal track of the singer from that band as an extra switch to toggle -- so they basically were "DJ ing" for that song. was still great tho.
and since I see mainly industrial/alternative/Darkwave/Dance bands from the 80's that y'all aren't familiar with, I always like to link to some of the big "hits"
here's UK Vision's club hit:
MCLs biggest his (as Razormaid remix)
Same guy, different band: Robitiko Rejecto
and again, same guy, different band, Moskwa TV was a little less industrial and more melodic and dancey:

Emily is obsessed with Game of Thrones. They have a music tour from the composer of all of the music from the show. I wasn't really looking forward to it, but she wanted to go, so I was a good sport about it and 'acted' like I wanted to do it. I actually had a great time. I'd never been to any kind of symphony and I found the music really beautiful and I paid attention to the complexities. I hit a home run with Emily, since she said she thought it was one of the best events she's ever been to. We're not big concert people.
Been to two concerts in the past month. 1. I saw Fleetwood Mac at Van Andel Arena on the 8th. Literally a last minute thing as I got a text from my sister a few hours before show time saying she was able to get really good tickets for a good price. Almost as soon as she sent it, I was on the road bound for Grand Rapids. It was a really good show! The Mac is a band with many hits and played most of them in the set.
2. On the 20th, my sister, her classmate from high school, and I went to Notre Dame Stadium to see Garth Brooks. This one was really good, but different as it was being taped for a concert special to air on CBS in December. What was remarkable is that the stadium was very full (plus floor seating) despite it being cold and rainy most of the day (the rain eventually stopped just as Garth came on stage).
