Things to do, things not to do

Do:

Not do: Uh, how about Kid Rock, Steve Miller, and Bon Jovi, for Christ’s sakes.

    I suppose it all depends upon your taste in music.

    If you didn’t see Steve Miller in the 70’s, Bon Jovi in the 80’s, and Kid Rock in the 90’s, it’s too late. Let’s do stuff with some vitality.

    Alesh,

    Being old enough to have lived through Clinton’s Parliment in the ‘70’s is not something that I like to ordinarily admit to but in this case it’s necessary in order to point out the obvious.

    Too bad I’m out of town. Bye ANR. Did you check out Omar’s (MSP)reality check / timidly hopeful bit on Jesse Jackson and the local live music scene? It was HILARIOUS. Acoustic music in Miami Beach spot… Bless his heart and yours too. As long as there are a couple of folks singing and a couple of venues though there is still a chance right? What’s next, beach parties with bonfires and strolling troubadours?

    Whew. At first blush it looked like “Kid Rock, Steve Miller, and Bon Jovi” was one show. Eek.

    they’re playing within days of each other at the Hard Rock casino, so Eek is somewhat apropo.

    its funny that bands think the need to be in New York to get big. Iron and Wine is the perfect example of how this doesn’t have to be true. Although, I would be assuming that what their moving up there for only business resigns. Then again they could just hate it here in Miami like everyone else.

    In fairness what are the chances of being seen or surviving or having a supportive group of fellow musicians as a live musician in Mia? A friend (who is looking at me write this) said to me that the label Iron and Wine is signed to will look in Caspar, Wyoming to find a good act but even then you better have your material prerecorded. I dunno. Wish they stayed b/c it all has to start somewhere right?
