    The major local music festival has unveiled its music lineup for this year. RHCP, Pixies, Midnight Oil, and Macklemore are on the list (as are Justice and Jamiroquai, the former of which is on DC and the latter of which I wish were in RB). Manu Chao is on the list, but we only have the song named after him as opposed to the artist proper.

    I'm aiming for Tuesday through Thursday once tickets go on sale.
  • BonFire5BonFire5 Opening Act
    Bryan Adams, Iron Maiden, and I'll be seeing U2 in May.
  • GLaDOSGLaDOS Opening Act
    On Saturday I'll be going to my yearly local music festival and get to cross off Blink-182, Toadies, Chevelle and 311 (and apparently Lit just got added to the line-up as well!)

    The other more-major, less-local music festival has unveiled its music lineup for this year. RB artists on the docket: Phoenix, MØ Kasabian, The Kills (of which the singer is part of The Dead Weather), and Royal Blood.

    Other artists I'm interested in include: Herbie Hancock, Emeli Sandé Morcheeba, Lauryn Hill, Us "Happy Easter, Xbox!" her & The Roots, a Macy Gray/Tom Jones double-feature, Solange and Erykah Badu on the same ticket, and Alt-J.

    As much as I'd love to see them all, the Swiss Franc and the US Dollar are more or less on parity, so imagine any prices you see on that list as dollar values and even with a better salary to account for quality of life that's a LOT of money.

    My buddies are coming down to the city for the weekend to see The Bronx. Not a huge fan, and have a lot of schoolwork to do this weekend, but I'll probably end up tagging along. Gotta keep adding to that list of RB artists seen in real life.

    Hold on, have you checked to see if it's The Bronx or Mariachi el Bronx?

    I love Mariachi el Bronx, I'd know the difference! It's The Bronx, playing their non-mariachi output. Chances are excellent I'll hear RB3's "False Alarm" though!

    Adding to my original list - I saw Brian Wilson on his Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary tour a couple of weekends ago. He was performing with fellow original Beach Boy Al Jardine and 70s member Blondie Chapin, so it was more Beach Boys than the current Mike Love version.

    The Bronx was awesome, and I'm not even a punk fan. I moshed all night long (out of character for me, but a blast), and the lead singer didn't leave the pit for the entire show. Moshed into him multiple times, actually (tried to avoid it, but). Made sure to pat him on the back during "False Alarm". If they come to your town, wrangle up some buddies and go get wild.
  • saosao Opening Act
    Only one I saw was Avenged Sevenfold, and that was when they were the opener for 18 Visions, Dillenger escape plan, and Poison the Well headlined.
  • Too many bands to list, so I'll take a different path here....

    Sat next to David Lee Roth at The House of Lords hair salon in Toronto On.

    Played some pre-show The Addams Family pinball machine with (then) bassist Glenn 'G5' of ANVIL at Chick n' Deli concert venue in Mississauga, On.

    Played at a charity pinball event (to raise funds for education in rural Ecuador) with Ed Robertson of the Barenaked Ladies.

    Damn, I am one lucky sumbitch.
