Fake Chicago was fine, but Philip Bailey still has it – fun show (and awful crowd in our section @ XEC)

Update #1: founding bassist Verdine White is #19 on Rolling Stone’s list of The 50 Greatest Bassists of All Time and was still fabulous at age 72.

Update #2: this stretch in the EWF setlist was my fave: Boogie Wonderland, Let’s Groove and September.

Finding out about this new Mike Campbell & The Dirty Knobs album takes a little bit of the sting away from not being able to make the recent Fitzgerald show in Saint Paul

Such a hard room to photograph, but very fun to see this lineup: Peter Buck, Scott McCaughey, Steve Wynn, Mike Mills and Linda Pitmon (who’s hiding in back on drums)

Can’t believe I messed up the Lynx game time. Still arranged for a Carbone’s visit (and still hope to make it to the Turf Club in time for The Baseball Project). Twins on the bar TV was nice bonus

🫑 “Worst Concert Venue”

Posted June 7, 2024

Star Tribune headline in 2017:
“It’s time to unplug the worst concert venue in the Twin Cities”

Star Tribune headline in 2024:
“One of country music’s best singers will play the Twin Cities’ worst concert venue in September”

In the immortal words of The Dude:
“Yeah, well, you know, that’s just, like, your opinion, man…”
