Bob Dylan / Elvis Costello

[music | The Coup (favorite mutiny) Pete Seeger (Talkin' Atom) [ie "good protest music"] ]

I'm sort of angry with myself. I really wish I'd seen Elvis Costello the last time he came around solo, but I'm sure that wouldn't have prevented me from seeing this show, it probably would have only made me want to go more.

However, someone didn't pay attention to my Pact Between Artists and Audience for this show: The audience, by and large, does not care about the last 20 years of either of your careers, so know that. I established that in advance, someone got the memo, someone didn't.

I felt like I was watching the result of Leonard Cohen smoking an entire pack of Tom Waits being backed up by Bruce Willis. Maybe someone with artistic integrity (I have none, first you need the "artist" part) can explain to me what I'm missing in this show. (Please note, Natalie's opinion is entirely different from mine, she loved it.)

Chris Cornell @ BofA Pavilion

[music | Misfits - She]

Chris Cornell, with Juliette and the Licks. I think the opinion on Juliette Lewis was "I expected nothing, and we got better than that". They weren't horrible, I think she was going for Aerosmith but with a different girl as lead singer. Like maybe Aero-Patty-Smith.

Ween @ Webster Theater, Hartford

[music | Love & Rockets - Mirror People '88]

I'm still washing the hippy off. This was an invite from a friend, and I had a good time with him, but bluesy-quirk-jam-band isn't really my chosen plan.

I will now proceed to whine:

Skinny Puppy @ Avalon

[music | The Birthday Party - Jennifer's Veil]

This has to be my favorite show so far this year, easy. And, I proved myself to be a complete idiot by half-ignoring Ogre when I bumped into him on the street...

New Toy

[music | Throwing Muses - Fall Down]

Can you guys knock something around for me? Some of you have seen it before, but check out Collection Browser. So it's a collection of my CDs, with extra Amazon-Link goodness. I hope that works, I have little idea how that works, but it searches for them anyway, so as far as a user is concerned, it works fine.

[music | Love & Rockets - Shelf Life]

I was wrong, and Dr. Octagon show

[music | Matrix - Reloaded]

The Treo 700w is not the worst camera phone in the world. Since my involuntary unemployment, I've had to relinquish the Treo, and tonight went out with an LG POS. I have no idea what the model is. Phone sucked, but at least I was entertained.
