I don't know if there is one already, I've seen the thread where everybody posts a utube link or whatever to their song of the day.  So, sorry if this is redundant, but I thought I'd start a thread for concerts people have been to.

I just got back from seeing Kasey Chambers at the Triple Door.  She was great!  Who's that, you might ask?  Only the greatest Australian country/folk singer ever (that hardly anyone has ever heard of).  At least I think so.  She loves Seattle but says we all talk kinda funny here.  wink.gif

So this thread didn't catch on at all, but I don't care, I'm going to stubbornly press on.  A couple weeks ago I saw the Old 97's at the Showbox.  They rocked the joint!  Good times.

I saw the Old 97s at the Showbox a couple years back.   Very solid stuff.  Great live band.

Maybe it just got buried too quick initially before anybody saw it.  Thanks for playing along everybody.  I figured I couldn't be the only one enjoying the local music scene from time to time.

Natalie MacMaster at the Edmonds Center for the Arts tonight.  Some very lively fiddling and a nice, intimate setting.

Back at the ECA last night for Del McCoury and his band playing some red-hot, traditional bluegrass.  Del learned it directly from Bill Monroe, the original.  Del's been playing and singing it for 50 years.  You don't get to see a piece of living history too often.

Well let's see...

Last week (Thursday the 18th) I saw country music legend Billy Joe Shaver at the Urban Onion in Olympia.  Two of my friend's bands played that night also - Hartwood and The Shivering Denizens.

Last night I was at Julia's on Broadway for their annual Halloween party and saw three really fun bands.

The Disco Cowboys

Smoking Bill

and

Sebastian and the Deep Blue

Del McCoury? Still touring? Wow! I'd love to see him.

Yep, Del is still going strong.  His voice is great, seems to be fairly lively.  73 years young according to Google.  I think his sons Rob and Ronnie were probably fairly young when they started recording and touring with him and they look to be middle aged now.  Apparently they don't get out to Washington very often.

I rarely make it out to shows much anymore, but caught Patrick Watson at the Croc on Friday. Still getting used to the layout since they changed the place. A good show by the headliner, but also impressed by this band from Montreal.

I don't get out enough. frown.gif  The last live music I heard was half fast playing the hammered dulcimer about a year ago at his house. Unless you count the accordion player outside the Lynnwood Trader Joe's. I gave him a dollar to play Que Sera, Sera. He was pretty good, well worth the buck.  wink.gif
