wow what a list! Which ones were your favorites?
Not looking forward to a whole lot this year that I know about yet except for Magpie Salute!!!
im going to MagpieS in Pasadena I'll be in front on Marc's side and Dawes the following night at The Orpheum.
Other shows I'm interested in are Beth Hart with KWS in Anaheim, Blackberry Smoke in Anaheim, Galactic at Fonda, Charlie Hunter at The Mint, James Brown Dance Party at Echoplex, Rival Sons at Fonda (unfortunately sold out), Mark Knopfler at Greek, Ozzy at Hollywood Bowl, Playboy Jazz Festival, Beachlife festival being planned in Redondo Beach, Doheny Blues Festival, Rolling Stones at Rose Bowl, Nels Cline at Masonic Lodge, Mad Skillet at Masonic Lodge on my Birthday, Dead and Company at Hollywood Bowl (saw them last year at Dodger Stadium great show).
Shows not announced yet that I will be interested in are Arroyo Seco, Cal Jam, Allman Family Revival and if Kamasi ever comes back he belongs to the world now..
Not sure about Sir Paul at Dodger Stadium it was extremely hot last July at the Dead show he might need one of those refrigerator suits like NASCAR drivers wear! I saw him at The Forum many years ago and it was great I can't imagine that he could put on a better show now but then again I was apprehensive about seeing Neil last year and he really delivered a memorable show with the Horse in Bakersfield. Those Nelsons and their friends who backed him at Arroyo Seco were pretty good as a backing band as well, they just weren't Crazy Horse, who are the best band anyone could have.
