TayFo's definition of "a couple" is more expansive than that of most folks.  Regardless, see you at the Flamin' Groovies show.
I had a dinner to go to during Flamin' Groovies. Glad you had a good time!

The Groovies went on at 10:50 PM.  Must have been a hell of a late dinner!  Anyway, I saw a guy that looked like you and would have said hi, but on closer inspection, he looked liked he was confused about where he was.  You've been to so many gigs you wouldn't have that problem.  Anyway, I did have a good time despite a lot of weird (but mostly funny) stuff happening.  During the break between Tiger Sex and the headliner, I was chatting with an old friend from Ye Old Punk Rock Days when a gal I met at a show last year who also knows my friend came up and introduced herself.  After exchanging pleasantries,  I told her we met at the Olivia Jean show back in November.  She looked embarrassed when I told her that.  I think she might have been too drunk to remember much from the Olivia Jean show.  God, I hope she isn't a member on here...

I refuse to shut up about Johnny Dowd until the world recognizes his musical genius.  I may lose my voice before that happens but at least I can enjoy the man's music while going mute.

I was a little surprised by that as well but (1) the show had a start time of 9:00 PM, and (2) two opening acts.  Party on, Garth!

12.  11/19/2017--Webb Wilder/Warsaw Falcons--Southgate House Revival, Newport, Kentucky
13.  11/21/2017--Pere Ubu/Johnny Dowd--Woodward Theater, Cincinnati, Ohio



I don't think Webb Wilder is capable of putting on a bad show.  Despite his Mississippi birth and voice that shows it, this is no country performer.  Webb plays straight up rock and roll.  Hope he's able to carry on for many years to come.

The Warsaw Falcons haven't improved much since last I saw them eons ago when the gal I was with and I left before their set ended.  But we then met up with a couple of friends of mine and went to the Jockey Club.  My friends were impressed that the gal was from England.  Ended up being a great evening.  So that's one good memory that's loosely connected to the Warsaw Falcons.

I'm a huge fan of Johnny Dowd and hadn't seen him in well over a decade.  Johnny toned down the eccentric touches a bit (just a bit) and included a lot of great guitar work from both himself and Mike Edmondson.  He included a couple of tunes from his forthcoming album of songs that are all in the public domain, one of which was Tom Dooley, played in a way The Kingston Trio never imagined.  The crowd gave Johnny an enthusiastic reception for an opening act.  Hope McCabe brings him back to headline at MOTR.

Pere Ubu's music was as strange, offbeat and powerful as it ever was.  And while I try hard to judge the art, not the artist, vocalist Dave Thomas seemed to be competing with The Fall's Mark E. Smith for some kind of Frontman Who's The Biggest Jerk award.  His berating of audience members who did nothing but blab was justified, but doing the same to his band members over nothing was not.  It would be poetic justice if Johnny Dowd's music career took off to the point he could hire Thomas' band away from him.

Meant as an early Christmas present for my wife and kid but I went along as well.  Not my usual thing but they're good at what they do and don't take it too seriously. The best number of the evening was a medley of tunes from Disney movies that changed a lot of the words and basically trashed Disney.  Dig it!
