We are lawn. How did you get them yesterday? Secondary market?
Live Nation presale. I downloaded their app a while back and they sent me a presale code yesterday. Presale codes seem to be about the only reason worth downloading, but I didn't fool with it much.
That's was probably about your only shot at seats. I was on there right at 10 when they went on sale and there was nothing but GA.
Ended up with lawn seats as well. I tried purchasing late Wednesday afternoon with a presale code but only lawn were left/available. I was hoping they had reserved some for Thursday but obviously they didn't. Still pumped to be seeing him.
I haven't seen him since the latest record came out. Should be a hell of a time.
Just saw an article where they've dropped the lead guitarist and horn section for the upcoming tour. A little bummed, but should still be a blast.
New Fleet Foxes album officially announced. It'd been expected for a few months, but they had to change the name of the album after realizing the original title was from a book by a noble prize winner that went on to be an ardent Nazi supporter in his later years.
Here's the new single:
Don't know the band, but just out of curiosity, what was the original title? That's pretty funny
It was originally "Ylajali," after a character from a Knut Hamsun novel called "Hunger."
To be fair, the novel was published pre-1900 and the artist won the Nobel Prize in like 1920, so pre-WW2. Then the artist became friends with Goebbels and admired Hitler and was arrested for treason.
Fleet Foxes are worth checking out, especially if you like Bon Iver, Blitzen Trapper, or things like that. Father John Misty used to be their drummer.
I know I'm way late to the party (per the usual with good music) but I just heard this song for the first time tonight and I am a big fan-
Seeing New Found Glory tonight. Pls big straight through Caralyst and Sticks and Stones
Girlfriend got me tickets for Avett Brothers in Atlanta at the Fox theater. I am excite.
Seeing them in July. Their new album kind of sucks
Yea, I agree. Hoping for a focus on some older stuff.
Should still be an excellent show, though. Let me know how it goes.
Saw Eric Church in Greenville. I thought it was the best concert I've seen of his. Played over 30 songs with an intermission. No opening acts. No pyrotechnics.
Chris Cornell died. Today sucks.
He played a show last night too. It does really suck, Goddamn. He made so much good music.
Hanged himself damn. Loved Soundgarden and liked Audioslave. Really loved his track for Casino Royale. What an awesome voice.
All gone now. My Clemson years are literally dying.
Do any of y'all like Jackson Taylor & the Sinners? Album I'm listening to now is damn good. Aces & Eights.
Saw Chance the Rapper last night in Charlotte and I have to admit, I was severely disappointed. First, the act right before him was a DJ that played for about 1.5 hrs. Not a bad DJ but towards the end of his set he kept doing and saying things to get the crowd pumped for Chance only to go back and play a few more songs. After the 3rd or 4th time, most people had stopped getting pumped.
Chance finally came on around 9:40 pm (due to noise laws he has to be done by 11:00 pm at the absolute latest). He plays a bunch of his tunes but only sings/raps one verse and the chorus and then the song ends. So right as you are getting into it, the song is over. Then he ends the concert on two big gospel type songs, combined spanning about 7-10 mins. I get that he is a spiritual person and he does have many songs along those lines but those were 2 of the only 3-5 songs he sang completely. After the second gospel song he drops the mic and is out. No encore. No nothing. Was only on stage for around 1:10 hrs. It took us longer to get home due to traffic than he was on the stage.
Overall, really disappointed in his live experience.
I'm going to see The Dead & Co in Atlanta on Tuesday. Pretty excited, because surprisingly, Jon Mayer is the best sounding guitarist out of all the spin-off bands formed since Jerry died.
He's legit on guitar. Just sings a bunch of queer shit.
Haha this reminds me of a story from college. I was working my last year at Farmers Home Furniture in Seneca. We had these NASCAR recliners outside. One was Earnhardt and one was Jeff Gordon. This guy comes in the store and yells out "you might want to take this Gordon chair inside unless you are trying to attract a bunch of queers."
Birthday weekend is getting even better. Seeing Sturgil on the 7th. That's my bday. Then Sunday the 9th Cody Jinks is coming to Music Farm in Columbia. @TheWampa
Hot damn, I'll be there for Sturgill. Hoping to get up early and pregame at VBGB.
They also announced New Found Glory at Music Farm in Columbia and angsty teen me is excited.
Shame Cody Jinks isn't the 8th. Craft and Draft is having a huge anniversary party that day and will have a lot of good beer.
Planning to come down for the C&D party.
Drove 2 hours to the middle of fucking nowhere to see Turnpike troubadours. Goddamn, they put on an incredible show. Phenomenal.
Let me know if you do. I have to work until 4:30 that day, but will head there right after.
Word is it's stuff they overproduced and couldn't sell, not their best beers
? They're bringing in kegs from a bunch of local breweries, not producing their own as far as I know.
Yea, as far as I am aware, they have only partnered with a local brewery to create a beer for C&D once, maybe twice. Other than that they bring in craft beers and sell them (mainly local/regional stuff with some cross country craft breweries tossed in as well).
They also carry Blackberry Farms which has some pretty awesome brews, IMO.
