6:21 PM Grrr commented on 7 Remarkable Robert Fripp Moments (Not With King Crimson).
I remember seeing Fripp playing solo guitar as he warmed up for the more bombastic headliners of the G3 tour back in the 90s. I can now look back and reflect that his perfirmance was actually more groundbreaking than the fingerboard antics that Vai and Satriani were doing that night.

Strangely enough, I'm writing all of this on the day after seeing Petrucci's shredfest with Dream Theater.
Mar 27 Grrr commented on St. Vincent and Her Hair Were Magnificent at the Moore Last Night.
It's the first show I attended for the year. Getting the feeling that 2014 will be filled with amazing performances such as as these as months go by.
Feb 3 Grrr commented on Never Heard of 'Em.
I totally enjoy the expanded version of this album which includes one of my favorites in You Say You Don't Love Me.

I somehow got yelled at in a blog when I suggested that their vocalist had a Dave Matthews timbre about him.
Sep 2, 2013 Grrr commented on BREAKING NEWS: Death Cab for Cutie Caused #FEELINGS.

When they played the title track, I somehow thought of my parents who moved halfway around the world to begin their retirement. I need to give them a call.

I've gotten a lot of great recommendations from Zanadu staff through the many years of visits. My personal recommendations to pick up are the compiled prints of The Killer (the first anthology in paperback only got its release recently) and Blacksad. Those Europeans sure do comics differently than the Americans.

That photo ban is unenforcible too at this day and age of smart phones. Staff were only hassling people taking shots at the edge of the crowd.

Agreed on all counts. I still had a better time at the WaMu concert date. It was nice to hear what the new songs sounded like live too.

Hated the venue since going there to see Black Star. Then repeated that unfortunate treatment seeing Opeth, which was also a downgrade from what was supposed to be a show held at The Paramount Theater.
Aug 21, 2013 Grrr commented on My Bloody Valentine's Cathedral of Noise.
It's the first time I've seen Showbox staff actively telling people that were taking photos to cut it out.
