Not much worth seeing, in my opinion, comes my way. I plan to see Joe Bonamassa in Seattle in December, and I've convinced my brothers to go on the Monsters of Rock Cruise in February. Saw a local indie rock band called In Medias Res, last night. They, as always, were amazing.

Kind of. Dakota Rock Fest is no more. This year it's Empire Rock Fest that is being put on by a different promoter but very similar setup to Dakota Rock Fest.

Nice. I have not seen them, but they are still sounding amazing.

 

In August saw Lizzy Borden and Y&T. NOt on the same bill though. :)

Two hours to go and there are a bunch of people with lawn chairs in front of the stage. Bastards!! Once it starts I'm gonna walk up to the front and stick my ass infront of some fat-ass in a chair.

Hall & Oates were absolutely incredible!! My only complaint would be that 90 minutes is not enough to go through their library justly--even with two encores. I guess I'll have to catch another show in the future. Incredible.

Yea I bet they could do a 90 minute medley and still leave some hits out...

I'm jealous. I caught Hall & Oates on HDNet about a month back. They were fantastic! Definitely one band I'd love to see live.

I went to the H.E.A.T. festival yesterday. The first band started at app. 3pm and it ended at 11:45pm. Awesome !! :party421: :party421:

 

Lineup:

 

Hollywood Burnouts (surprisingly really good local glam-rock band with hair-do like Poison. lol)

Serpentine

White Widdow

Human Zoo

Shakra

Keel

Stage Dolls

 

The best of the stack probably were the Stage Dolls. Torstein Flakne & team were in a really good mood and gave us a tremendous show. A little heavier than usual.

Second place goes to White Widdow and Serpentine. Both were very good. When I spoke to the Serpentine guys later on and told them that I saw them playing at The Borderline in London in March this year (Glen ! Dan !! :)) they nearly freaked as this was their first ever gig and very special to them. I also had a nice chat with Jules from WW. Funny and very pleasant chap !

Third place goes to Human Zoo. Good songs and great show, very much in vein of Gotthard.

Shakra wasn't bad, but very heavy.

Keel is not "my" music.

 

Some pics will follow ..........

berndster do you have the White Widdow setlist? were there any covers played?

 

No, no setlist and I didn't hear any covers. It was about 50/50 the first and second release.

Hmmm, really difficult to tell. Maybe 300? Definitely less than when you were over to UFOR.

Good to hear WW play a mix...some great songs on both albums.
