Lauryn Hill at First Avenue

story posted Tuesday, April 25th, 2017 11:28 pm GMT -5

I’ve run into my friend RW the past two days in a row, which reminded me of the Lauryn Hill concert at First Avenue last September (that I never wrote about). You can read Chris Riemenschneider’s review of the 9/4/2016 concert here, since this is all I really remember from that night:

  • We loved the Fugees and were sad we hadn’t seen any of her other recent visits.
  • It was the most money we’ve ever spent on a First Avenue ticket.
  • We learned RW is a true First Ave VIP and got us one of the tables upstairs.
  • Ms. Hill completely lives up to the diva reputation (and her band probably wanted to kill her by the end of the show).

That cover of Nothing Compares 2 U was amazing, though.

Peter Gabriel and Sting at Summerfest

story posted Saturday, April 15th, 2017 09:55 pm GMT -5

Summerfest in Milwaukee just announced their 2017 lineup, which continues their amazing run of awesome bookings. I still don’t fully understand how they can get such great acts year after year, while charging so little to get in. There must be some serious beer vendor underwriting going on – plus now they are stepping up the other corporate sponsorships to improve the grounds.

While the closing night this year features the outstanding Outlaw Music Festival (with Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, Sheryl Crow, Jason Isbell, Nathaniel Rateliff and Margo Price), I don’t think we are going to go this year. Reviewing the daily lineups reminded me I never wrote about last year’s finale: Peter Gabriel and Sting on the Rock Paper Scissors tour.
