25 Concerts for 2017
« on: January 16, 2017, 10:24:21 PM »

Let's get it rolling.

1.   1/15/2017--Muuy Biien/Leggy--MOTR Pub, Cincinnati, Ohio

Leggy sounded fine as usual.  They debuted some new songs.  Proud papa euro60 was in attendance.

Muuy Biien were all right.  I've heard them described as being like Gang Of Four, but their music isn't nearly as minimalist.  If a reference point is really necessary, they could be considered a more "accessible" Wire.  The assertive bass playing and some funk touches were somewhat reminiscent of Bedlam Retreat, a Cincinnati band from back in the day.  Anyone remember them?  MB seem to have lost one of their two guitar players a few months back.  I think the second guitar is definitely missed.  They played for 35 minutes but it's hard to complain when there's no cover charge.

The opener, Will something, went on at 6:45, Arkells at 7:20, Murder By Death about 8ish.
You can generally guess bands will start an hour after doors, but with so many bands just count backwards from 11. (11, 9, 8, 7)

1.   1/15/2017--Muuy Biien/Leggy--MOTR Pub, Cincinnati, Ohio

2.  2/26/2017--Jason Ringenberg--Southgate House Revival (Revival Room), Newport, Kentucky

Just because a musician who gained notice with an electric band later tours solo with an acoustic guitar doesn't mean it's sensitive singer-songwriter night.  A lot of the set was like Jason and the Scorchers with a lower decibel level--I've never seen someone dance around so much while playing guitar.  And most of the songs he played were requests after the third song. Jason asked if there were any requests, and after ignoring the first couple of songs people shouted for, it went like this:

Me:  Link Wray!

JR:  What's that?  You wanna hear Link Wray?

Me:  Yeah!

JR:  OK

And after reminiscing about his friendship with the late Mr. Wray and telling a good story about him, he played the tune. All in all, a fine show, and the 7:00 PM start meant I could attend on a Sunday night and get home before 9:30.  And special thanks to the doorman/bouncer for escorting an obnoxious drunk out the door.

3.  3/24/2017--Chuck Prophet & The Mission Express/Chuck Cleaver--Southgate House Revival, Newport, Kentucky

What a great night of music.  After Wussy's Chuck Cleaver banged out a fine opening set accompanied by just his electric guitar, Mr. Prophet and company brought forth a rock and roll tour de force which lasted almost two hours.  The big Friday night crowd loved it.  If Prophet keeps this up, he'll soon need a larger venue than the SGHR. Check out his new album, Bobby Fuller Died For Your Sins, and definitely see him live if you get the chance.

3.  3/24/2017--Chuck Prophet & The Mission Express/Chuck Cleaver--Southgate House Revival, Newport, Kentucky

4.  4/13/2017--Jonathan Richman--Southgate House Revival (Revival Room), Newport, Kentucky
5.  4/13/2017--William Matheny & Strange Constellations--Southgate House Revival (Lounge), Newport, Kentucky

Random points about Richman's show:

(1) As usual, no opening act.  Must be a standard part of his contract.

(2) When Jonathan says in interviews that he and longtime drummer Tommy Larkins play a lot differently than they did a few years ago, he means it.  Jojo has incorporated a lot more flamenco and similar styles into his guitar playing, but it's an expansion of his sound, not a wholesale change.  And Larkins is an incredibly underrated drummer.  He has added timbales to his kit, and if you closed your eyes you would think there's an extra percussionist on stage.

(3)  Richman spoke to the audience even more than in the past.  His dry sense of humor was very much in evidence but he subtlely and not-so-subtlely gave the crowd things to think about as well.

(4)  My favorite part of the show:  Audience members who shushed idiots who were talking during the closing number, As My Mother Lay Dying.  If there's one rule at Jonathan's shows, it's that you are respectfully silent if he chooses to play that song.

(5)  The Revival Room was very crowded. Hey Morella, can Jonathan go back to the Sanctuary the next time he comes to town?

William Matheny and band were in fine form, and rocked out more than I anticipated.  This relatively young man already has few peers as a songwriter. He plays locally and towns close by quite often, so see him when you get the chance--years later, you can tell people you saw him when he used to play very small venues.

Note to euro60:  Ken from Trash Flow Radio was there for both Richman and Matheny.

I'm rather sure that board members in addition to TayFo and me have seen shows in 2017.  Let's see more lists!

Drjohn, knowing that Ken is a big Richman fan, I am not at all surprised he was there.

I haven't been to a lot of shows this year, in fact only 1 non-Leggy show, and that was Margaret Glasky and Andrew Bird at the US Bank Arena a few months ago.

There is an embarrassment of riches of all kinds of gigs all over town tonight (Kishi Bashi; Son Volt; Electric Citizen; Joesph; Leggy of course; just to name those).

1. 4/6/17 king gizzard and the lizard wizard @ magic stick detroit
2. 4/14 great lake swimmers @ the ark ann arbor

king gizzard - great show! trippy psych band from down under.
great lake swimmers - intimate show at the ark (great place to see an intimate show), played old songs and the quiet ones as a three piece. definitely a sit down and enjoy the music type of experience.

upcoming: 6/2 sigur ros @ masonic temple detroit; just picked up tix for cowboy junkies at the ark 6/10!

Thanks for the post, notoriouspbake.  It's good to hear about gigs that aren't in the Cincinnati area.

I've heard a lot of good things about The Ark--would like to catch a show there sometime.  I know mik has also been there and has said positive things about the place

Assuming the set list on setlist.fm is accurate, it looks that this was a great concert, with songs they don't always play:  Generals, Ignite, Disco Man, Nasty, Stranger On The Town.  Makes me wish I would have planned things better and caught the tour in Indy.  Did you enjoy the show, TayFo?

It was a good show. Bleached killed it too.

I heard about the Damned show AFTER the facts (on Trashflow Radio). How in the world did I miss this?

TayFo, how well attended was it?
