but I don't know if anyone here knows enough celtic music to know what I'm talking about if I list them. I play celtic fiddle myself, so I love going to see great celtic music live.

cool - I love Celtic music! I don't know much about it, but I know it when I hear it, and I think it's beautiful.

Yah, so basically, I am poor and can only go and see tribute bands. BUT...

I went and saw these three tribute groups, and thought they were all fantastic.

First, I saw a Beatles tribute called "Rain" or "Rain: The Beatles Experience". I must say, for a tribute, they had to be one of the best. They did costume changes with costumes that actually looked realistic to the originals, and they even had the accents of each Beatle down to almost exact. They joked with the audience, were quirky, and entertaining. And an extra bonus: during intermissions they had cool videos and clips of retro commercials, and controversial events of the 1960's. It was a very interesting and neat show. Definitly go see it if they come to your town.

Second I saw two tribute bands who were playing a show together on the night I went. One was a Pink Floyd tribute called "The Pink Floyd Experience", and the other, a Led Zeppelin tribute called "Led Zepplica". These two were absolutly AMAZING. They did every-thing perfect, and they really studied every detail of each band. The Led Zeppelin tribute even had their guitarist playing the guitar with a violin bow, and the drummer even did a crazy 3 min drum solo onstage during their performance of "Moby Dick".

These two tributes were amazing as well, and worth checking out too, if they happen to be in your area.

I saw the Pretenders two weeks ago. They were good, but they blew off "Kid", "Talk Of The Town", and "Tattooed Love Boys". And Chrissie Hynde said 'hi' to me in parking lot. She was standing outside by the tour bus when we pulled in. She still looks good. I was gonna invite her to our tailgate party, but she's a big advocate for vegetarianism, and all we had were dogs, burgs, and sausages....(and beer and tequila, of course).

The opening band, however, was EXCELLENT! They were four kids from Nottingham, England, called IV Thieves (that's FourThieves). Three of the four dudes sang lead on different tunes, their riffs were reminiscent of T-Rex, and their antics were reminiscent of The Who.

And if all things go right, I should be seeing Steely Dan tomorrow night, about ten miles from where I live. And if all things go right, I'll probably be getting cooked in the parking lot while Michael McDonald is playing.

Hey, Jane.

Pretenders were very good. I saw them open for the Stones a few years back, but, of course, I only saw half of their show because we were getting cooked in the parking lot.

Steely Dan was excellent. They opened with my favorite Dan tune, "Bodhisattva" and closed with my second favorite Dan tune, "Kid Charlemagne". That was before the encores, of course. Michael McDonald played about five songs with them, and Cindy Myzell sang lead on "Dirty Work". Very cool! A most excellent show! See it if you get the chance.
