I talked them up quite a bit in the old concerts thread, but holy god ...soihadto... are an awesome live band. Just saw them for the second time tonight. They're Duff Goldman's band (the guy from Ace of Cakes), and they're amazing instrumental prog rock, very loud. If I had to put a name to it, it'd be Tool meets Pink Floyd, sans vocals. HIGHLY recommend checking them out if you get a chance. Their CD, while good, does not do the live sound justice.

With this one out of the way, I'm down to 2-3 shows for the summer. Warped Tour in July (which I'm not really that interested in since Bouncing Souls are dropping off the tour THE FRIGGIN DAY BEFORE), Lollapalooza in August (which is going to be an amazing five-day roadtrip adventure), and possibly The National at Terminal 5 in NYC in late July.

Thanks for the heads up 95Crash, I've been hesitant to buy tickets since my one friend who is a diehard Maiden fan said when he saw them about 4 years ago they pretty much just played their new CD, and I don't want to see them do something like that. I'm sure I'll end up going anyway, Fear of the Dark and Hallowed be thy Name might be enough to draw me in, plus even though they aren't as awesome as the old stuff, I like a few of the new songs on those setlists you posted.

My friend is extremely bummed that they are hardly playing any of the classics. But I don't mind it as much just because it's the weekend and I still get to hang out and tailgate in the parking lot beforehand. Which newer songs should I look out for?

To be honest with you, I'm not that familiar with most of the newer stuff, which is weird since I wasn't even around when most of the older albums came out, but out of what appears in those setlists, I kinda like Paschendale, The Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg, Dance of Death, and No More Lies. It's different though, if you're trying to measure it up against songs like Aces High and The Trooper you're going to be disappointed, but in my opinion if you just think of it as a separate band then it's better since you don't have such high expectations that way.

I guess I'm one of the only country guys here... Seeing Toby Keith tomorrow night @ PNC. The guy puts on a great concert every year and for several years in a row kicks it off here in Jersey. Last year he played an unpublicized set @ the Stone Pony hours before the PNC concert last year. This year, a band called "Incognito Bandito" played the Irving Plaza last night (it was Keith with his session band covering some of the greatest classic rock songs ever).

Otherwise, I'm looking forward to DMB w/ Zac Brown Band at Hershey in July and Benjamin Burnley (of Breaking Benjamin) doing an acoustic set in Atlantic City next month. BB killed the rock back in February.

Heads-up. A couple of people mentioned that they had tix to see Weird Al.

Ticketmaster issued an alert tonight. Weird Al's show this Sunday, June 27, at 8 pm, has been moved from the PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel to the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park on the same date and time. All tickets for the PNC performance will be honored at the Paramount Theatre.

Saw Faith No More at Williasmburg Waterfront in Brooklyn last night. Cool place to see a show. New York City skyline right behind the audience. Only thing I didn't like was the beer garden was gated off and to the side. But if you get there early enough, you'll probably hit one of the local bars beforehand anyway. Street parking. No meters.

I wish I could have made at least one of those shows. I'm seeing Primus there in a couple weeks and obviously have never been there. Did you drive in? If so, how's the parking situation around there, garages, street, etc? Just want to know what to expect since the show is at 6:00 on a Friday and the commute there should be lovely.

What time are you driving in? I was lucky enough to drive in early last Friday and traffic was amazingly light going that way. I took the GWB. I didn't look for a parking lot because there were plenty of free spots on the streets.

My updated concert calendar:

July 18th - Warped Tour - Monmouth Park
July 27th - Flaming Lips - Terminal 5
July 30th - Spiritualized - Radio City Music Hall
July 31st - Gogol Bordello/River City Extension - Starland Ballroom (maybe)
August 6th-8th - Lollapalooza - Grand Park, Chicago

Considering The National in September at Wellmont Theater in Montclair, Muse in October at The Rock, and Phoenix in October at MSG. These will depend on how my money and job situations look post-Lollapalooza.

July 31st - Gogol Bordello/River City Extension - Starland Ballroom (maybe)

After seeing Gogol Bordello open for Rage Against the Machine a month ago, I can't wait to have another chance to see them again. I wish I could go to that show but my friend's birthday is that night.

They're opening for Primus in Williamburg the night before, although it's a double bill so they'll probably play more than the typical 30-40 minute opening slot. As for your question above, I'm hoping to get there early but would probably be taking the Holland tunnel. Free street parking sounds fine to me unless that area is overly shady.

Nope, not overly shady. I think everyone parks on the streets around there. On the side streets, there are some cool bars and semi-trendy shops mixed in with some warehouses. Also Brooklyn Beer brewery is a couple of blocks down, but it doesn't open to the public till 6:00.

I saw Gogol headline a show in December ... the set was only about an hour long. So if you get stuck with a relatively short set, it really won't be a whole lot off from what you'd see otherwise.

They're a great show, though. Just brief.

That's actually my birthday as well, that's why I'm thinking about it even though they're playing Lolla the next week

Monday Night: IRON MAIDEN the greatest heavy metal band in the world at MSG.




I was at both shows in the area. Dream Theater totally kicked ass with their 50 minutes. Iron Maiden was great, although it seems many people complain about the setlist...(not enough as Bruce said, "fossils from 1984.")

I ended up not going to the Maiden show, had to go to my cousin's graduation party instead.

I'll probably be going to that Gogol Bordello show at Williamsburg Waterfront (thanks for the heads-up skeeter) and making a day of it, stopping at L&B Spumoni Gardens on the way there, and the kickass chicken and gyro platter stand at 53rd and 6th on the way back.

How is Williamsburg Waterfront? I've never been there before.
