I like taking photos of other people's screens as they take photos at gigs.

At the annual jazz festival Saw Herbie Hancock, who was boring,

Then saw The Jacksons, who did a pretty good set for fellows in their mid-sixties. Mrs MT was so happy! Germaine did most of the singing.

There was also some powerful Afro-jazz - really driving and energetic, and a band who played really fast wild Coltrane type stuff.

Corinne Bailey Ray was on the bill too but I didn't catch her set.

Going to see Midnight Oil next week in Seattle.  Anyone else here into this band?  One of my absolute favorites.  First tour in 15 years and getting rave reviews.  Setlist changes radically each night, with really deep cuts.  Even played all of the 10 to 1 album start to finish at one show.  I've seen them a few times back in the 90's and 00's and they were some of the best shows I've ever seen.  If you have the chance, catch them on this tour, as it could be the last.

I'm just getting into these guys but love everything I've heard so far. I hear a lot of Gang of Four in Midnight Oil.  I'd bet that G.o.F. would list Midnight Oil as an influence...  My good friend is a big fan of Midnight Oil and he is heading over to The D-, from Wisconsin. We'll hop the train from Windsor to YYZ, to see Midnight Oil  at the new Budweiser Stage on August 25... I'm excited for my good friend to visit, for the adventure to the east and for a great rock show on that Friday night...


Rock ON!

I thought last year was a bad year for gigging - just 4 shows - but until a few weeks ago I'd only been to one this year.

Luckily November has seen that total rise to three! Both nights were also nights out with Mrs Slikk - not sure whether that is good or bad.


A couple of weeks ago we went to Sheffield's Leadmill (formerly a flour mill) to see Finland's finest the Von Hertzen Brothers. Why these guys aren't as Big as Foo Fighters or Muse is beyond me. Why Foo Fighters and Muse are so big is also beyond me. Still, it meant we could get up close and personal in the crowd of 150. If you like riffy Pop Prog with lots of vocal harmonies I recommend you check them out.


Last Sunday we went down to Rock City in Nottingham to see Opeth. Once again we got up close and personal, central position on the front barrier so we could see right up Akerfeldt's nose :)

Mrs Slikk was most taken by the support band, Norway's Enslaved. So taken in fact that she's sailing away in guitarist Ivar Bjornson's Long Boat next week :)

Opeth were well, Opeth. Death Metal Opeth, Prog Opeth and all points in between - so that will be Death Prog Opeth then.


IMHO the best three live acts in the World are: Riverside; Opeth and the Von Hertzen Brothers. I've seen all three this year, so 2017 short on quality, long on quantity.



Old Rush Good, New Rush Bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Silversun Pickups. Saw them a couple weeks ago in Rochester, NY. It was the 3rd time I've seen them live.
