  1. A few photos...........
  2. Just got back to Tulsa after driving to Little Rock to see Regina and Tom. Great show, although a bit short. My biggest fear, would be me, stomping a mudhole in some redneck dissing Regina, but apart from a few folks in our area commenting "why did Tom pick someone unknown, is he doing a favor for someone?", and a few drunks yelling "Tom Petty, woohoo....." during her set, it wasn't too bad I guess. She looked fantastic, was super charming, and sounded great as always. That was our fifth time seeing Regina, and third time seeing Tom. We're HUGE fans of both artist, so it was a real treat seeing them both on one night. We were 21 rows back on the floor, so I doubt my pictures will be anything great, but I'll post a few when I get them uploaded.
  3. Bonnaroo 2010

    We had never seen Brandi Carlisle live before Bonnaroo. She was fantastic. Here is a little pic for your enjoyment.
  4. Bonnaroo 2010

    Two of my other favorite ladies from Bonnaroo 2010. Alison Mosshart of The Dead Weather and the always lovely Tori Amos.

I've seen my favorite band 60+ times now (see: the concert thread). Other than only seeing Regina once, I'm perfectly happy doing what I'm doing, thx 150+ bands and you could only find 3 to enjoy? Thats pretty sad.
  8. Regina On Late Night W/ Jimmy Fallon.

    Machine...........shocked, delighted, content.

If I actually gave a crap about seeing live shows other than Regina, and one other band I like, I would totally go to this. After spending hundreds of dollars on Bonnaroo two years ago to see three bands, I'm not wasting my time on that again Note: If you go, do not DARE go see Rebelution. D-bags on top of Cali a-holes they are... oh and their music is trite and stale... just FYI... (But their bassist is hilarious/sad/hilarious to watch) Edit: Dave Matthews Band.... *shudder* While I pretty much agree about DMB, Bonnaroo 2007 had tons of great bands besides Regina.

  11. Regina on Craig Ferguson?

    As often as possible, which given my work schedule can be difficult at best. If I can find more time to practice I might actully have a steady gig with a local political/roots/punk band here. I've seen a few of their shows and practiced with them once, but I seriously need to adjust my playing style to their material and especially work on my foot speed. Below is a link to their website, which in turn has links to their MySpace and personal works. http://www.theportrayl.com/
  12. Regina on Craig Ferguson?

    Holy shit! My favorite girl, on my favorite late night show, with my favorite drummer. No, Matt is far from boring. He is a badass. His resume is to die for.
  13. David Letterman is a ASS!

    Just a few thoughts on this...... First, I used to really like Dave, but he seems less and less interested in guests, especially musical ones. It's been a trend over the last 7-8 years. His show has grown stale, the formula doesn't quite work anymore, and he doesn't seem to enjoy it much anymore. His sarcasm used to be funny, now he just comes across as grumpy and ill informed. Second, rarely ever does a musical guest get an interview. Elvis Costello was the last one I recall, and that was because he had a new music/interview show on cable. Dave could be a little more genial with the musicians at the end of the show. Occasionally he barely acknowledges them. Thirdly, this is precisely why I love Conan. You can tell he truly loves music. He gets up, runs out to meet the band, shakes every hand, and compliments everyone. He absolutely fawned over Regina the last time she was there. Lastly, despite Dave's bluntness and seemingly lack of interest, Regina pulled off a stunning performance! Maybe her best late night TV performance EVER.
  14. Stream "Far" on NPR Music now!

    I've been using it all day!
  15. Laughing With!

Scroll down, you'll find it..... http://mollyknight.tumblr.com/ Ack. Molly Knight. *shudder* The first three chords in "Laughing With" are the main chords that repeat throughout "A Sorta Fairytale" though. But then Laughing With jumps off becomes its own song. Three chords are three chords. It's the same idea of Regina not wanting to end Folding Chair on a sixth because she said it sounded like the Beatles, and her producer said they don't own that chord. I was hoping someone would investigate that a little, I'm a drummer, so you'll get no help from me on that one.
