    NW is best for a drier outdoor fest.
    I’ll be working at the Fresh Grass music festival in North Adams so hopefully minimal rain.

    acoustic dropkick Murphys Saturday night!

    That will be awesome to see.  Hopefully some bagpipes still (non electrified, of course)

    I'm going to Rhode Island for Comic Con in November with my Family and we are thinking of staying in a hotel in Warwick. 

    How is that area? Good hotels ?

    All the usual 2 and 3 star chain hotels because the airport is there... Hampton Inn, Fairfield Inn, etc. A few years ago I was at this hotel called, NYLO (might be part of Hilton?). Renovated mill building with a modern, urban feel on the Pawtuxet River.  Decent restaurant within as well.  All the chain restaurants are there.  If you can head over to East Greenwich (next town south).  Blu on the Water is a nice restaurant in the cove.  Not too far from there is another good spot to eat called, The Trap. Pub kind of place, but nice feel. Wings are awesome. 

    Edit: If the convention you are going to is the big one in Providence there is tons of great restaurants in PVD (I'm guessing that you have already researched Federal Hill).  Also, Waterfire is that weekend so if you can, stick around Saturday night and walk along the river during this event. It is a great thing to do.  A few streets get closed off. With artisans, food trucks, and street performers, all against the background of the wood fed cauldrons on the river this event is a worth while thing to see. We try to go at least once a year (we just went a few weeks back).

  3. The first time my daughter goes to the west coast just happens to be this past Thursday to Sunday night ...to SanDiego...at an Air bnb on the beach.  Any thoughts on the storm moving in there over the next few days.  Flights cancelled? Should she bail tomorrow instead of Sunday, or just wait it out?

    Heard from several people tonight that the sound quality was absolutely atrocious in the second and third levels.

    Seeing it all over social too.

    This dude is never going to want to step foot in Mass again :lol:. Rough weekend all the way around.

    If this guy is touring stadiums, then he should have a very seasoned rigging, sound and light crew with him.  The sound issues are not a Mass thing.

    I also have Godsmack, Saving Abel, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Skillet, Fozzy, I prevail and Falling in Reverse on one of my playlist too.

    Been reading a bunch of stuff, and watching video reports on Ronnie Radke from Falling in Reverse. That dude is the definition of trainwreck.

    Getting back to music, whatever happened to rock? Seems like Disturbed only ones still sort of kicking it. One of my favs here. Sevendust. 



    First time seeing disturbed was second stage at Ozfest in 2000.  Great bunch of bands on that second stage back then, including Disturbed. David (lead singer) was wheeled out on stage, strapped to a handtruck, in a straight jacket, and Hannibal Lecter mask.  They were so new (on a national scale), that they played like a 25 -35 minute set in the early afternoon.  People were like, what the hell is with these guys (in an inquisitive, this looks awesome kind of way). And they kicked-ass

    Saw these guys open for the Black Crowes last summer. Great opening band. 


    Nice. Perfect Black Crowes opener.   I've seen the Crowes a few times.  Once, opening for ZZ Top back in 91 or so, then as a headliner at the Orpheum in Boston...maybe, 2001?  Such a great live band.

    Check out Greta Van Fleet .

    They are playing at TD in Sept. Saw them at Mohegan last year.  Led Zeppelin reincarnated


    I absolutely  love these guys.  Love them.  Heat Above is one of my favorite, newer rock songs.  I bought tickets for my daughter for the upcoming show at the Garden and will be giving them to her for her birthday in August.

    I don't mind volbeat, Shindown and Asking Alexandria too.

    Seen all of these bands.  Asking Alexandria was not a band that I had known much about, but they opened for another band a few years ago.  Not bad.  

    Seen Volbeat multiple times, including last year co-headlining with Ghost at the Centrum in Worcester. Always awesome.

    Rock isn't dead as some might say (I think EDM is the most popular genre world wide), but you just have to know where to look.  Most of what I listen to and see live are European metal bands. 

    So many bands that I grew up with are just old, and still trying to hang on for that one last paycheck. Is sad to see, but rock is definitely not the forefront, and what it once was.

    It’s been a while since I’ve been to a country show but a decade or so ago we went on a country bender and went to several shows… I still have never seen more alcohol consumed than at a country music festival or concert. 

    I went to Jimmy Buffett Shows continuously, every year for about 12 years.  That parking lot scene breathes alcohol.
