I don't actually enjoy concerts.  I never really have.  I do sometimes enjoy going to concerts though.  Which is different. 

I know what you mean.

Know what else I don't enjoy? Recordings of live shows. I don't think bands ever really sound as good live as they do in a studio. When I go to a concert I don't mind that the band doesn't sound as good live, and I like it when they improvise stuff or change things up. That, to me, is the beauty of a live performance. But I don't want to listen to a band playing live on a CD or album. It just isn't the same.

Of course there are a few exceptions. Cheap Trick Live at Budokan is decent. But in general I don't want to hear a crowd singing along or whatever. I don't even like hearing live recordings of shows I've been to. I have a few friends who collect live recordings (aka bootlegs) and they've given me copies of shows we attended together and I can't even get into those, and I was there!

But my car radio is steadfast set to WGUC, the Cincinnati full-time classical music station.

You really should download the Inhailer app and give it a listen. We spin new indie/modern rock, classic/vintage modern rock (songs you would have heard on 97X BITD) and also lots of local Cincinnati/Dayton/NKY bands - including Leggy!

My sign of becoming old was I had no interest in any of the bands at Hopscotch last year. Now, the only concerts I attend are the North Carolina Symphony.

I've finally seen almost all the bands I would want to see, when Franz Ferdinand and Belle & Sebastian came through Raleigh a couple years ago.
I feel exactly as you do. It will take a mountain for me to go to just a concert. I mean, I've literally seen any band I've ever wanted to see, and multiple times at that. So I rarely go to concerts anymore.

Except of course if it involves my daughter's band Leggy, I can never get enough of that, LOL

I used to go to many Cincinnati Symphony concerts, and I love classical music, but I must admit that has gone to a trickle too: 1 or 2 concerts a season. But my car radio is steadfast set to WGUC, the Cincinnati full-time classical music station.

But I am glad that our local public radio station has a second channel that is all music and has a nice, random playlist. On the drive home from work I heard "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" by Gil Scott-Heron, followed by "So Caught Up" by The Teskey Brothers and then "Short Skirt/Long Jacket" by CAKE. It's more diverse than anything I can find on satellite radio.

Hell Is Real Part 2 is upon us... This Sunday at Nippert FCC encounters the Columbus Crew. What a game that will be! 2 weeks ago in Columbus, FCC managed at 2-2 tie in a game they should've lost. The atmosphere was electric. (And the first sell-out for the Crew this year.) I'm sure Nippert will close to a sell-out too.

If you can't make it, the game will be on FoxSports 1 at 6 pm.

FCC has been terrible this year, but beating the Crew make up some of that.

Since nobody has opened the debate, I guess I will?

This past weekend's ManCity-Tottenham's game was insane beyond belief. So much attacking! Relentless from ManCity from the get-go. Despite getting outshot 28-3 or some crazy number like that, Tottenham managed a 2-2 draw.

Of course there was the controversial VAR call in 90+2 minutes when ManCity scored. Seems like the correct call, but man...

Watched some other EPL games over these first two weekends. So much fun. I don't care what anyone says, but EPL is the best league, period.

indeed....as epic as puig battling the pirates by himself too.......

as for his maiden photos, those are some good shots but by omission, it almost feels like he isn't spoiling some great things about the show (some of the props and guests)!

My friend and coworker Sam Greene got to shoot the show for Cincinnati.com and said it was absolutely his most favorite photo shoot ever (and he's the guy who took the memorable photo of Reds pitcher Amir Garrett taking on the entire Pirates team)!

Props to him. That was an AMAZING picture

Fantastic!
The Greg went to their show here in Atlanta last month, missing my Mom's 70th birthday because of it.
But, neither my dad nor my brother would get mad at him for it. "It's Maiden!"

Southampton is NOT a pretty city. But Brighton is fantastic. Lots of really cool, funky indie shops and boutiques, great vibe and OMG the vegetarian food options are off the hook! Great seaside town.
