Zac Brown Band. Didn't make it in in time to see either of the openers, which I hate when that happens, but traffic.. Crowd was only slightly a shit show. Lasted the whole show without a comment being made about my mask until we were walking out and a few drunk guys started chanting Fuck Joe Biden in our general direction. Show itself was pretty good until they ended the set with about a 20 minute medley of bad classic rock covers before Chicken Fried. My wife was very happy though, and that's all that matters. The show poster was legit too (flattening before I post a pic of that)

Hopefully, you've had your ivermectin...

This is Alabama. Outside the venue there was a table with red solo cups of hunch punch and a gas powered generator with a hose attached. You drink 12oz of the punch as fast as you can, take a huff off of the exhaust pipe, yell ROLL TIDE then go enjoy as much of the show as you can before you pass out.

That's how we are Flattening The Curve

And there are still folks out there who don't believe science works.

Oh yeah Alicia brought it. Loud as hell. I actually have a series of shots i can make into a gif as soon as i can figure out how on my phone. The only downside was Pom Pom Squad pulled out of being the supporting act of the tour. But it was great being at a rock show again

Got comprehensively soaked watching Wilco (and a very little bit of Sleater-Kinney; I was late and only caught 2 1/2 songs before the weather delay) last night in Forest Hills. I’ve seen them at least a half dozen times, but never had the opportunity to watch Nels from this close before. Well worth it.

Caught the Eskimo Brothers last night in Portland. A Nashville band that plays the strip a ton, they have a residency at one of the joints. Anyhoo, the lead singer went to high school with a bunch of my friends here in Portland. He just rips on the guitar, and a solid band with stand up bass playing a few originals and a bunch of covers.

Last night, Nicole Atkins + Night Heron was the first concert I attended since early March 2020, when the world changed. Was absolutely worth the ~1.5 year wait, and what a way to kick off my slate of upcoming concerts.

Night Heron

Neat, vibey band that also happens to hail from Portland, Oregon!! Their setlist comprised most of the tracks from their debut LP. The closest parallel I would equate their sound to is that of Tame Impala's Currents, but substantially more low-key. Enjoyable.

Nicole Atkins

Oh so fun! Met up again with @Ericj32 in between the sets, chatted for a few minutes, and he secured me a can of Prfiem Hazy IPA (IOU!) at the counter. Still wasn't very packed during the intermission.

Nicole's setlist was primarily music from her most recent records, with a healthy six tracks from the excellent N&G RotM from @Teeeee. It was really interesting to hear her claim that the self-titled track from Goodnight Rhonda Lee was inspired by Chris Isaak.

Several cool, cute, and crass moments at this show. A slow dancing contest with a hand-drawn portrait of Ten Danson by Nicole for a pair of lucky contestants set to the fantastic "A Little Crazy," a lengthy call-and-response section from a track I didn't recognize, many more references to "secret boyfriend" Chris Isaak, and a brief interlude by Nicole's keyboardist who's lyrics involved kinky grandmother fantasies (not kidding).

The encore was an excellent, sultry, rockin' cover of Led Zeppelin's "What Is And What Never Should Be." Pretty neat how her country-soul, singer/songwriter backing lent well to the track.

Post-Show

I had brought Nicole's two most recent records from home in a messenger bag to the venue with the intent to get signatures, like most of this forum seem to already have gotten through preorders/N&G RotM announcement. @Ericj32 hadn't yet acquired Italian Ice on vinyl, and were both equally as interested about getting signed merch. After he got the LP from the merch table, we decided to wait inside the venue for Nicole. Initally, we did see her emerge from the curtains separating the stage from the audience floor, but she went upstairs exiting the venue rather hastily.
Subsequently waiting ~15 unsuccessful minutes for her return, we hesitantly ventured out of the basement venue asking a few employees around for her whereabouts, being met with inconclusive responses. I was disheartened by the time we got to the sidewalk outside...for approximately one minute. @Ericj32 whispered to me: "I think she's to your right." I turned around, had my eyes take a second to adjust, and then had the moment of realization and almost squealed, realizing how awkward my audible outright disappointment might have been LOL. Nicole was indeed talking to a pair of fans outside for several minutes, based on the conversation we stumbled on. When we caught her attention, we asked if we could get LPs signed and she was so nice about it. She recognized the N&G logo from the sweatshirt I was wearing and made mention of how "crazy" the AMA held on the forum was. It was very surprising to hear that she hadn't performed in a Portland venue in several years. We were able to talk for a minute or two about trivial small-talk before she ended up returning to the venue.
She's the best.

I saw Waxahatchee kick off her tour in KC last night. It was lovely. My first show that required proof of vax and entry was actually really smooth. Lots of masks on even for an outdoor show which was encouraging to see.

Kevin Morby joined her for a song during the encore as well.
