    They were supposed to perform at Awesome Biker Nights in Sioux City last year. Everything was cancelled because of a crazy storm that rolled in about 9pm so I just hung out at my hotel and drank beer.
    They have to be one of the hardest working bands out there. It seems they are always on tour.

    Reel Big Fish is playing at Simon Estes on July 3 for Nitefall on the River. I haven't decided if I'm going to go, but that's one that sticks out in my mind.

    My wife and mother-in-law are seeing Chris Isaak (playing @ Hoyt Sherman this August). Reminds of a quote from Flight of the Conchords:
    "Women like three things:
    * Men in kilts
    * Southern Comfort
    * and Chris Isaak's 'Wicked Game'"

    I hate your face. SO jealous.

    Ryan Adams will be at Hinterland, so I'll see him. Going to Tom Petty in June, and Hinterland in August. Have a big project going on at work, so I'm missing Electric Six, Turnpike Troubadours, and some of the others I really wanted to see this summer.

    No need to put the qualifier out there to justify seeing Hall & Oates. They kick ass.

    Maneater, Private Eyes, I Can't Go for That, Say It Isn't So, You Make My Dreams, etc

    What's not to like?


    (I am also attending :))

    Rich Girl, Out of Touch, Kiss Is On My List. All were available on the Call & Oates hotline once upon a time. Which is still programmed into my phone. Because Hall and Oates are freaking awesome.

    (I could not talk Janny into going.)

    Wasn't sure if I should "like" this or not. The parenthesis make me sad for you :D

    I saw Chris Isaak at a festival last summer and he was terrific, caught me completely by surprise.

    Don't waste your time. Art has lost it big time, saw they at RAGBRAI a few years back... Possibly one of the worst shows of recent memory and it was free... I know the Grand bridge did not help, but they just seemed dated.

    I was at that show, too. I thought they were OK actually, but I've been a fan since their first album so there may have been some bias.

    I am so irrationally excited - I found $20 tickets on CraigsList. It's probably a scam, but he wants cash and we're meeting in public, so I'm PROBABLY not getting murdered.
