Doesn't look like it's coming to my neck of the woods...

there have always been multiple legs
this will definitely hit the Warfield or the Fox

first one i went to i wasn't expecting much
i wasn't planning on going but i was working a few blocks form the Warfield at the time
i looked at it as a cool after work hangout opportunity with Monstruo/Dave/Mando
it ended up being that AND an amazing show
everybody on the lineup (with the exception of one or two primadonnas) was extremely laid back and ego free

Yeah, you said Johnny Lang was a righteous fella... if it hits the Warfield I'll definitely consider it... and Dave Mustaine is still a POS

if i do this show i will definitely go the Amtrak route
i have friends who live in Truckee that have assured me that they will get me on the 9:37am westbound the next morning
don't love the 7 hour travel time, but i also don't love driving the Donner Pass

clack clack clack

Been a long time for Hearts Of Stone.Maybe they pull it out in New London.Going down on Amtrak,since driving 100 miles is still iffy with the leg.Hit a football pool for a nice chunk of change last sunday night,so I`m making up for missing the Bull Run show last week.It will be strange seeing the boys without Steve.Real old school set would be nice.

I had a real "circle of life" moment last night when I got to take my oldest son to his first Los Lobos show.

I've been following the band since the late 80s when I saw them open for U2 and the Dead and then continued seeing them in the NYC area through the 90s. As often is the case, when my wife and I moved out the burbs and started a family, I no longer had the resources to see them live.

My oldest son, Jackson, is 15 and in the past year or so has become passionate about music. He's grown his hair out, learned to play bass and has spent practically every waking moment listening to everything from classic rock to punk to metal to grunge.

Los Lobos doesn't come to Long Island too often and when they do, it's often in support of other bands. So when I saw they'd be headlining a show not too far from our house, I asked Jackson if he wanted to go. I was quite pleased when he gave an enthusiastic "yes."

The show itself was a bit of a mixed bag. Unfortunately, no Steve, so Jackson wasn't going to get the full LL experience. And Cesar was having problems with the sound throughout, to the point where he stopped playing on some songs (I don't know enough about sound engineering, but it seemed like the monitor set-up was the problem. He complained several times about how awful it sounded and thanked the audience for their understanding at the end. The one positive byproduct was more solos from Louie.)

I thought several of the songs were pretty rough around the edges, but I haven't seen them in almost 20 years and I've become pretty rough around the edges myself in that time.

Jackson's personal highlight was "Don't Keep Me Wondering" as he's recently discovered the Allman Brothers. For me, the band really began to swing during an impromptu "Farmer John."

So while the show itself might not have been perfect, getting to experience it with my son certainly was.

I'm about to start a separate post about this show, but wanted to point out it's actually a movie theater from the 1920s that was saved from demolition and turned into a music venue. Just some local trivia  :)

Wolf/ Shakin/Emily/chucos /tin can/don't worry/down the line/wicked rain/hearts of stone/don't keep me wondering/farmer john/mas y mas. Encore: oh my head-lets go-la bamba-good lovin-la bamba. A nice bluesy 90 minute set from the boys. Venue is a big place with high ceiling. I guess  a converted warehouse. So it took a big sound to fill it up. Caesar was quite talkative tonight and getting the Long Island crowd going. Very friendly staff was a plus.   On to Tarrytown NY and the legend of Sleepy Hollow!!!!
