I just found out that the Marshall Tucker Band will play at my little town festival next week, a free concert for maybe 500 people. Makes me sad. I remember seeing them at the coliseum with a crowd 10 times that big.
On the other side of the curve....
A crazy little band that my family has been following for years (usually watching them in coffee houses and church basements) just got "noticed". They will open for the Dylan/Nelson/Mellencamp tour this summer. If you buy tix to go see the old guys, be sure to get there early enough to catch The Wiyos. Some of the best live music you'll see in a long time.

Crap! I just tried to get tickets for the nearest show on the Dylan tour. $100 a pop for general admission in a baseball stadium. Ouch! I'm used to seeing The Wiyos for "$10 and please buy something at the bake sale to support the acoustic concert series". I guess that's the downside when your favorite band makes it.

When you have an 8-year old daughter, that is what you do.........
Okay if you had told me my 250th post would involve the Jonas Bros, well I would have said you are crazy.

Our kids' (17-year-old twin girls) tastes are none too sophisticated, but thank goodness they run beyond the Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus.
I admit that the concert scene lost me when ticket prices for the cheap seats climbed beyond $60. Oh for the days when most tickets were $8, and I saw Bruce Springsteen for a $4 cover charge at a club with only about 300 other people. This was a year before "Born to Run."
