Dude, I was AT THAT SHOW. (I'm assuming it was the Pittsburgh show at Club Laga. I said it was September above only because I remembered it wasn't that long after 9/11, and they closed with "New York City".) How weird is that?

Strangely enough, it wasn't, though I did see them hear a coupla weeks ago. This one was at the Riviera Theater in Chicago (I go to school up there). Didn't clsoe with NYC, but that really woulda been awesome.

Oh, well, I was at the show a couple weeks ago, too.

Holy cow, I think TMBG suck so, so very badly now. The last 10 years or so of their career has been like the second Spinal Tap album, on repeat, for 10 years.

TOM PETTY.

His show last night rivalled the best concerts I'd ever seen or heard on any medium. He had the crowd eating out of his hand the entire show, and was just insanely insanely awesome.

Train--Saw them in a very small club where the band was playing on the same level as the floor. Super cool!

Smashing Pumpkins-- Crazy crazy Show. Wicked fun.

Neil Diamond--One Word---CHICKS

Face to Face-- Hell there was a fire in the building, and they kept playing, amazing.

Saturday night saw The Goo Goo Dolls and Third Eye Blind and they completely rocked out. Could've gone without Vanessa Carlton as the jobber act(she was horrible) but the two main events were more than worth the price of admission...

Weird, as the only reason I thought about going to see this show when it hit town was to see Vanessa, as outside of the two big hit ballads by Goo Goo (Name and Iris) I could do without either one. Of course, my day has already been ruined by reading that Vanessa Carlton is dating the lead singer from TEB, which is just so so so wrong.



You never know when you'll meet that special someone... the someone that's mysteriously blind to your flaws. or, you know, stupid enough not to realize that yes, you really are that cynical.

Vanessa Carlton was a complete waste of 35 minutes of my life. Her two "hit" songs sound nothing like the rest of the stuff she played. Sounds like a bad Tori Amos wannabe. Then she completely lost me when she and her band did a horrible rendition of the Stones "Paint to Black" thus ruining one of the few Stones sogns I liked.

She's dating the Stephen Jenkins from 3EB? She seemed to get very friendly with Johnny Reznick during the encore when she was strumming his guitar during their cover of Petty's "American Girl."
