I saw the amazing Old Crow Medicine Show from the USA at The Forum in Melbourne last night :-) They were performing their '50 Years Of Blonde On Blonde' show. I saw them perform at the Manchester Ritz in Manchester in the UK in June and, prior to that, eight years ago at the Moss Vale festival in Victoria. They do not know how to play a bad show. Highly recommended :-)

Tommy Stinson last Thursday at The Met in Pawtucket RI. Good sound, sparse crowd (maybe 100). Merch included a numbered limited edition signed poster done by a local artist for $10. Great show.

Peter Wolf Sunday night at The Tupelo in Derry NH. Good sound, full house. Merch included signed vinyl copies of "A Cure For Loneliness" for $20. Great show.

Wish Peter Wolf would play around here.

I think he did a couple of years back, but I couldn't make it.

Drag him down to Broadcast and take over the stage after the gig - it's an early finish so...no reason not to do another half hour between 10.30 and 11.00... 8) :wink:

Mr Wood has not worn so well as Mr Hunter.... but then again who has?

King Crimson.....Boston

They have 3 drummers, (2 too many ) in my book, but they are doing songs from the entire Crimson song book. The band was tight and the crowd was really into it. Numerous standing ovations. They played almost the entire first album, "in the court of the crimson king". Two 50 minute sets with a break in between, and then another 15 minute encore. I heard songs they haven't ever played live before and many I haven't heard since the early 70's. If you like them at all and thtey are coming to your town, check them out. You won't be disappointed.

Chrissie Hynde from The Pretenders has posted the following great message about their fantastic show at The Forum in Melbourne, which I went to Friday night, on The Pretenders FB page. I couldn't agree more with her comments and it definitely showed in her performance and demeanour on stage. And her band were great, especially the amazing James Walbourne on guitar :-)

Hi Everyone!

Last Friday was one of our all time favourite shows here at the Forum in Melbourne. It was the perfect venue. Standing audience ( like a big club) and the sound was great. Lots of familiar faces up the front. And NOT ONE PERSON USING A PHONE during the whole show..... proper rock audience.

Thanks again everyone who came to see us. We’ve had a great time in Australia and hope to come back before too long.

I won't steal his thunder but Mottman put a good response to this on f/book. (well I though it was funny anyway)

Chuck Prophet - Cardiff

Finally taking the hint from other MB'ers and David Finch in particular, I thought I had better go and see what the fuss was all about. What a great band & Chuck is a great guitarist and front man, great interaction with the audience. I'm off to explore Chuck's back catalogue - where should I start?

You can't really go wrong with just taking the new one 'Bobby Fuller' and working backwards from there.

Of the older albums, 'No Other Love' , 'Age Of Miracles' and 'Homemade Blood' are the stand-outs...
my entry point was 'Temple Beautiful'... so that one holds a favourite spot for me.

It is often the way that the first cut is the deepest.
