  2. The new Trey movie is playing once - July 17th - at a bunch of theatres, including a lot in Canada. For Ottawa folks, Dan Lyons has extras he's trying to sell. https://www.betweenmeandmymind.com/tickets/?campaign=USA_BMM_MailChimp_SANSA
  3. Saw him in a small dance bar in Moncton before he was signed; place didn't even have a stage. There was maybe fifty, sixty people there. I had never heard of him and was completely utterly blown away by the show. Unfortunately, when he came out to shill his 7" single (See The Light) I was down to my last $3. Beer or record...beer or record. You know which way I went. Damn...wish I still had that beer.
  4. Booche, it's "Fyre". I keep thinking that you're talking about a Glenn Frey festival. Then I remember that Glenn Frey is dead.
  5. I'll take Festival Locations for $200.
  6. I hear the Foreigner cover band only has one original member left. Kudos.
  7. When they announced the lineup and had the ticket onsale date set for weeks in advance I was suspicious. When does that happen?!?! Well, seems like they are having problems down there. The Black Keys have pulled out, the fest doesn't have the proper permits yet, and now they've postponed the ticket sales. https://consequenceofsound.net/2019/04/woodstock-50-ticket-postponement/
  8. Yeah, I didn't know that he had stopped talking at shows again.
  9. I agree 100% edger. That Jack White show last year where no phones were allowed inside was such a breath of fresh air. I can see it becoming standard for a lot of shows. Okay, maybe that's more "hope" than anything, but either way yeah, I'm with you on this.
  10. Every time I hear of Dawes I mistake them for Foals, probably because I saw them back-to-back at a festival once. Foals was so bad at that festival I wanted to beat them up and I wanted to beat up the people that signed them, and the people that produced their records, and I even wanted to beat up their guitar tech. Having them play at the festival was a horrible, horrible waste of time, not to mention electricity. I never thought that innocent musical notes could be put together so atrociously.
  11. Peace & Love & The Killers.

    Bluesfest 2019

    Oh yeah, unquestionably heavy players. We'll see if their set conflicts with Phish or not...
  13. Lineup is out. I'm excited to see Chicago. Other than that I might be spending most of the festival drinking beers in my backyard for the first time...ever? https://ottawajazzfestival.com/shows/
  14. Ahem...that's Kim Mitchell and David Wilcox...on the same bill! I'm confident that people will be flying in from around the continent for this, if not the world. It's not like Phish hasn't played at MSG before.

    Bluesfest 2019

    Chicago will be playing at Jazzfest, which is more interesting to me than the entirety of the Bluesfest lineup. Though I hope to see Yonatan Gat again. He's great. And Isbell of course. And yeah, Rodrigo y Gabriela is pretty impressive, but I've just never been into flamenco. Gosh, I hope Peter Cetera isn't with Chicago.
  16. This is Doug (from The John Henry's) and his psychedelic rock project that he has been rehearsing for literally years, and their first gig will be at Ottawa's awesomest bar, Irene's on Saturday, March 30th. Tix are available online. This has a high likelihood of being amazing, but no guarantees. You've been warned, both ways. Seriously though, 85% chance of it being amazing. https://www.facebook.com/psychedelicottawa/?__tn__=%2Cd%2CP-R&eid=ARA3X1asnKpb4fhyLqsljWhYQOMSnmph5CgzZDpEqYqHXhgCyuBpycMb7KsRCGZpaJCg3V_rXPrJ6t3E
  17. What a great player. He will be missed.

    Bluesfest 2019

    Bet the have this tour booked for Bluesfest: http://www.brooklynvegan.com/heart-announce-tour-with-joan-jett-sheryl-crow-brandi-carlile-more/?fbclid=IwAR0ImImOMDIbq4JN5NxSj1fJUxYlEDa0UzlcSQBKEOUmTW_H5Yk6s9P8b7M
  19. So you're saying the main/only drawback to the venue is the in-and-out parking situation? That sucks, but it won't be enough to keep me away. Bad sound, bad sightlines, stupid onsite rules or other things like that might be though.
  20. Apparently the capacity will be 71,600. I understand the venue is considered to have a 100,000 capacity. Maybe they're keeping ticket sales a little lower than usual (for some reason) and it'll be a little roomier in there?
  21. Why horrendous? What's your experience there? I have a couple of hotels booked but I'm not 100% convinced I'm going yet.
