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.

as usual, some songs for those not familiar:





anyways, some pics:

Was that the Hallo-Ween show, Ed?

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!

Ok, pics from last week's stellar Simple Minds show.

we were balcony, center stage, row D, so had fantastic view, and the sound was amazing. Moved down later to right at the front near my friend Jennifer, who (of course) got the Set list.

at least the only song I'm not a fan of, Dolphins, had the best stage/lighting

No opening act - only Simple Minds in 2 1/2 hours (with a 10 minute break between sets), with a career spanning set.

but I think my absolute favorite part of the show was early in set 1, when a heckler yelled out to Jim :

"Chrissy Hynde loves you!!"
(which is a dick as hell move, when he's onstage with his girlfriend)

but Jim Kerr's response?

"I know she loves me. . but now I get to eat cheese!"

BWAAA-HAAAA-HAAA


here's some pics. if you get a chance to catch them on this tour, it's well worth it.

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!

setlist:

• Double Dare
• In the Flat Field
• A God in an Alcove
• Dive
• Spy in the Cab
• Small Talk Stinks
• St. Vitus Dance
• Stigmata Martyr
• Nerves
• Burning from the Inside
• Silent Hedges
• Bela Lugosi's Dead
• She's in Parties
• Kick in the Eye
• King Volcano
• Kingdom's Coming
• Severance
(dead can dance cover)

and pics:
