    Amanda Palmer in Birmingham last night. Totally amazing. Strong contender for gig of the year. It was a small venue so I was up close and personal and she did plenty of crowd surfing.

    And I got a set list! :D

    I got some filenames mixed up when I re-uploaded some files to my server. Here is the crowdsurfing shot I posted originally:

    I am going to see Alice In Chains again in a couple of weeks at the Rockstar Energy festival. Should be a blast.

    I got to see Weird Al Yankovic perform at Foxwoods Casino on Friday night. I saw him once before back in 1996 when I was 9 years old. He was touring for his Alapalooza album and did a show at Eastern States Exposition (The Big E), a state fair in Massachusetts. I remember being awed by not just the musical performance itself but all the costumes and everything that went along with the parodies, and the encore performance of Yoda, complete with accordion solo.

    This time around, the purpose of the tour is to showcase his original songs that don't often get performed during normal album tours. The tour is no frills, meaning no costumes, video screens or special effects. It sounds lackluster but it was anything but. It was a reminder how talented and versatile the band members are as musicians. He performed some of my favorite tracks and even did some of them in a different genre/style than the originals. It was well worth the ticket.

    For those who are curious. Here is the setlist:
    “Weird Al” Yankovic Setlist at Fox Theater at Foxwoods, Mashantucket

    You will note some of the songs on the setlist had not been performed live in about 30 years, so that made it all the more special. My mum and my brother were at that 1996 show with me, and the 3 of us got to share this experience too. So that was an added bonus. If he does another tour in the future in more of his usual style, I would definitely see him again.

    I went to see Fastloaders and three other retro game musicians/composers at the Back In Time mini-festival in Bergen last month, so thought I should share a picture since I so rarely go to any concerts/festivals. Here is Fastloaders on stage with Reyn Ouwehand, the legendary composer of the Last Ninja 3 music.

    In the past two weeks, I have seen Nine Inch Nails, Metallica and Machine Head (twice this week!). Tomorrow, I am going to Metal Fest in Rhode Island to see Jinjer, Devildriver and Whitechapel.

    My brother just got some pre-sale tickets for Weird Al's latest tour called Strings Attached, where he will be touring with an orchestra. The show is at a small-ish venue near me this coming July. We have seats in the center section about a dozen rows back from the stage. My brother tried to get seats even closer but he was about ten minutes late when the presale opened online and already the best seats were going fast! Still... not going to complain. The previous tour was great but we were literally in the very back row.

    I saw Steve Wilson in November. As always, he never disappoints. He played a mix of solo stuff and Porcupine Tree material, including one of my all-time favorites: Heart Attack in a Layby. Also, I'd mistakenly bought a VIP ticket, so before the show the VIPers got a three-song acoustic set and some fun banter.
