1.   1/15/2017--Muuy Biien/Leggy--MOTR Pub, Cincinnati, Ohio
2.  2/26/2017--Jason Ringenberg--Southgate House Revival (Revival Room), Newport, Kentucky
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
6.  6/8/2017--The Joy Formidable/Cusses--Woodward Theater, Cincinnati, Ohio
7.  8/21/2017--Chastity Belt/Joseph--Roebling Point Entertainment District, Covington, Kentucky

8.   9/2/2017--Song Of The Mountains TV taping:  Jim Lauderdale/Sherman Holmes/Judy Marshall/Webb Wilder--Lincoln Theatre, Marion, Virginia

I'm not an architecture buff but The Marion Theatre is an absolutely beautiful venue--one of only three Art Deco Mayan Revival theaters in the world.  The murals are amazing, and the carvings and painting have incredible detail.  Very good sound quality as well--just a great place to see a show.

Webb Wilder was originally set to close the show.  I guess they are trying to expand beyond their "bluegrass and old timey" fan base.  Since the advance ticket sales didn't exactly set records, Webb was demoted to opener, while the artistically inferior Jim Lauderdale closed the show.  Jim didn't help put that many more asses in the seats.

Webb's set was by far the highlight of the evening, as much for his integrity as  the fine music: despite playing without his band and with just an acoustic guitar, he did not pander to country music enthusiasts in the crowd.  The tunes he played have long been part of his repertoire, while his stage patter included tales of the rock bands he and his friends would travel to see when he was younger.  And he recited The Webb Wilder Credo:  Work hard, rock hard, eat hard, sleep hard, grow big, wear glasses if you need 'em.

As for the rest:  Sherman Holmes (good; fine singer), Judy Marshall (all right), and Jim Lauderdale (retire now while you're not that far behind).

Last week I saw Interpol while on vacation in Belgium, on their "Turn on the Bright Lights 15th Anniversary" tour in Tilburg, NL (about 50 mi. north of Antwerp), what a fantastic evening of music that was. They started the show playing TOTBL front to back, and in the encore played a mixed "greatest hits", just fabulous. Interpol hasn't been relevant since 2007 or so (in my book anyway), but this show was lights out, period.

Are they doing that in the states?  I saw them at the old Southgate House on the original TOTBL tour and it was a great show.

No idea if they are doing a similar TOTBL anniversary tour in the US.

And yes, I was at that SGH show as well (Jan. 17, 2003)

Too lazy to google it, but I believe I saw something in a ticketmaster or live nation advertisement stating that they were doing this tour in NYC

You and 700 of our closest friends.  That was a stupidly crowded show.

Saw my first concert for 2017 on Saturday:

1. Afghan Whigs / Har Mar Superstar @ Brooklyn Steel 9/16/2017

[old man alert]
I thought it was rather unpleasant. I struggled the whole time with the sound and the only enjoyable moments were in a few of the songs when it went really soft and (I think) there were no guitars playing. The bass was going, and maybe the keys, but that was probably it. Otherwise I could barely hear the lyrics, the notes, or anything else. Is this a case of the band being poor, the venue being poor, or me being cranky? I couldn't tell. I think that I used to just accept this fact of live music, and especially live rock bands, but I don't know. It's been 1.5 years since I saw a show, and it was Public Service Broadcasting so it was definitely in a different spectrum of music.

That being said, Greg Dulli was cool and they looked stylish. I'm sure they played well but I couldn't tell.

Har Mar Superstar opened and he was a genuine asshole. His music was pretty good, but everything else about him had disaster written all over it. He claimed he was drunk because he went to a 7 year old's birthday party earlier in the day. He tried doing patter between songs but he, literally and legitimately, couldn't complete his own sentences. Later, Greg Dulli finished a song and said that usually Har Mar sings that song and he almost forgot that he wasn't there because he's, "probably doing acid somewhere in Brooklyn. That's not a joke." So yeah - weird situation with that guy, but I guess the Rock N Roll lifestyle never changes even if you're in your mid-40s, fat, and balding. Also, he was wearing some weird tights and my friend instantly commented, "he dresses like my 3 year old daughter."

I have to back up everything you have to say about Har Mar.  I really like his music, but he just seems like a complete asshole. I saw him at MOTR and he apparently left his dirty hoodie on the stage all night and someone stole it. Now, that definitely shouldn't have happened, but he just kept harping on someone stealing his "drug rug". He even stopped the show and walked out at one point saying he wouldn't come back until someone returned it. Apparently someone talked him off the ledge, as he came back and finished the show after like 15 minutes, but a good portion of the crowd had already left. Maybe he is different offstage (as Barb Abney really seems to like him) but everything I have ever seen him do on stage just leaves a terrible taste in my mouth.
