My 7 Day Weekend of Live Music!! (VIDEO)


Wow! What a freakin' week! Normally, the concert season doesn't start around here (Omaha) until Winter is over and everything thaws out. Not so much in 2024. This video documents a pretty wild week where I saw five different shows in seven days!

Porno For Pyros hit the brand new venue, The Astro. Despite being a Jane's Addiction fan since the late 80s, I never actually saw PFP after Jane's broke up. For the "final" tour, PFP added Mike Watt (Minutemen, fIREHOSE, The Stooges) on bass, and that made the show mandatory for me! Opening the show was a UK band called TigerCub.

Veteran indie rockers, Yo La Tengo, returned to The Waiting Room for "An Evening with Yo La Tengo." The band did two separate sets - one quiet, one loud - and there was no opener. No matter how many times I see YLT in concert, they never cease to amaze.    

David Nance released his newest LP, David Nance & Mowed Sound, recently on Jack White's Third Man Records. He had a record release show at Reverb Lounge. Vinyl community members will recognize Dereck Higgins on bass. He played on the LP, and performs with the band when they play locally.

The last two shows I cover in today's video (Living Colour, Matthew Sweet) both have their own video reviews with lots more clips and photos.
