Does live Political Musical Theater count as live music?

(There was a live band providing the music)

Saw the San Francisco Mime Troupe

Present 

"Back to the way things were"

In Mill Valley.

We had snacks.

And the 5 person cast put on an entertaining, and thought provoking, show.

I guess the scrap wood, driftwood and CNC machine were too expensive, so they could only afford enough concrete for one post.

Not crazy about the show in the round.  The screens lift up and of course lot's of political images and dialog on screen.  My problem is I was up high (didn't quite qualify for nose bleed) with seats at the rail.  Could not see the other side of the stage from my vantage point.  Perhaps you could with lower seats.  Not sure if I it is because I'm not used to in the round or that the stage facing the audience is actually a better experience.

Roger is 78 years old.  Missed some vocals and the people I talked to said it was his most politcal show yet.  Enjoyed the show.

Wilco at Interochen's Kresge Auditorium. Opening act is Courtney Marie Andrews, and @blessingx is the sole member to post her music in the listening thread. Most of the crowd is wandering the grounds and enjoying the evening sun than watching Courtney.

Ah, my Covid breakup (with humanity) album. Hope both bands were really good and you all had a great time. Most of the crowd blew it. 

"Like a young Linda Ronstadt at her country-folk finest, Courtney Marie Andrews writes songs that seem lived-in and familiar in the best way. "Guilty" is a time machine straight back to early 1970s Laurel Canyon: beautiful piano, easy drums, and vocals so warm and evocative you feel the heart and the hunger even if you don't know the words. (There are echoes of that other canyon queen, Joni Mitchell, as well, especially in the hiccupping chorus of the gently bubbling "If I Told.") But the words are pretty powerful. Written and recorded at the end of a nine-year relationship—meaning it lasted nearly one-third of her life—Old Flowers finds the singer-songwriter poking at the tender bruise of heartbreak. "This album is about loving and caring for the person you know you can't be with."

Courtney was really good for the 30 minutes she had. She also came out to sing California Stars with Tweedy. Admittedly, I was a little jealous that the Pitchfork Fest crowd got a duet with Japanese Breakfast, but this was good too.

And now Super Diamond has the natives on their feet

We're pic-nic-ing (stage right) in the shade of Redwoods

To avoid the "Mosh Pit"

(Those flailing Rolex's could give you quite a slap)

Along with the Neil Diamond covers there have been fragments of AC/DC, Led Zep, Rush and A-Ha in a musical medley, and now Sweet Caroline finishing in the style of G'N'R (Sweet child o' mine)

Damon seems to truly care and is passionate in his performance

Uber drivers wouldnt let him drive, so we tried the monorail. They wouldn’t let him drive either. Idk why.

We were posted up in front of the sound booth. I think the sound guy noticed David has JH Audio custom earplugs so he got the set list!!! It’s now residing with me; love it!

This is the instrument I should have played growing up instead of saxophone. Alas. Perhaps in my next life/simulation.

And the photographer was literally right behind us. Hoping to find some of those images soon.

Had a good time; this was a bucket list band for me to see live

That just looks horrible and I am not talking about you, Brent.
