crazy busy since last Thurs (we had to go to Houston for the weekend for a wedding), so just now getting around to posting. .
but saw a FANTASTIC set (even without a couple of songs I would have loved to hear) from Public Image Ltd (PIL) - the band Johnny Rotten formed when the Sex Pistols imploded
Johnny might look a bit rough these days, and it was odd he was using an "old skool teleprompter" (ie: a stand with a book of lyrics on it).. .but he *sounded* absolutely amazing, and the current members of the band kept up with him seamlessly.
the 1st encore of "Public Image" sounded absolutely fantastic, as did the jungle beat of "Flowers of Romance"
it really was a career retrospective, and I'd guess someone told Johnny not to bring up politics (he's a big Trump supporter) in liberal Austin, for this sold out crowd.
one of the best shows I've seen in a long time -- tho we see Simple Minds on Friday, and that might top this one.
I got to see them twice this past summer and they killed both shows (Cleveland and Buffalo). Such a great live band...hope they do more in the future!
It was, and I will definitely see them again when they roll around next time (first time seeing them)- they were very impressive! A cool tidbit about the show is that I got to see Phish cover Roses are Free a few days earlier when they came through town, so I was pulling for it going into the Ween show, and I got it!
I went and saw Bring Me The Horizon and Thrice in Orlando last Friday, what a fun show that was. The Fever 333 also played but I dind't make it in time for their set (oh well haha). Bring Me The Horizon's new album released that same day so that was kind cool seeing some new stuff live for the first itme. I'm not really a massive fan of either band but do know quote a bit of their material, but they both killed it, just a party from start to finish.
BMTH is playing a rock festival here in town in May and I'll definitely be catching their set there.
Went last night to see Peter Murphy & David J on the Bauhaus "Ruby Anniversary" tour at the sold out Paramount in Austin.
It took about 40 minutes for folks to rush the stage, and start standing up to dance, but eventually the old goths started shuffling to the music
as usual, took a ton of pics in hopes of getting some decent ones, think I succeeded somewhat!
