As my regulars know [if I have any left] I love music and live concerts [my list to date]. I go to as many as I can...and can afford. I saw Augustana earlier this summer, and the music was great, but there was a bit of disconnect since their interaction with the crowd was minimal. I don't necessarily like overly chatty acts but some give and take lets me know they appreciate us. I also have tickets to see Motion City Soundtrack, one my youngest favorites. We will also be seeing Maroon 5 with Train and Foo Fighters in the fall. I am not a huge fan but I hear they put on a great show and it wouldn't be the first gig to convert me. [Green Day]
Why am I sooo excited? Beady Eye will be playing in Boston at the House of Blues. Beady Eye is Liam Gallagher's band, basically what is left of Oasis since they broke up. [brother Noel quit the band] I am a huge Oasis fan and was lucky enough to see them in Madison Square Garden. Our seats were in the rafters but we could hear the band, and with a few beers I was happy.
I knew they were touring and playing NYC. I looked up the venue to see if it was "doable", it wasn't. I follow the band on Facebook and twitter and when I read about the Boston date, my heart literally started beating faster.... I know........ I know. I have already figured out where I want to stand at the gig. The House of Blues is a great venue, small yet big enough to have a great atmosphere.
The tickets go on sale Friday at 10am......... I will not be taking any calls, texts or tweets.
