Had to check on the previous page to see where I left off gig-posting-wise.
Last gig was last night: John Fogerty (of Credence Clearwater Revival fame) at Northerly Island, Chicago. I'd never seen him before and boy, was he great! Most every song was from the late 60s/early 70s era & husband & I kept remarking how all those songs fondly remind us of when we were young kids. Before he came out, there was a 20 minute or so documentary on the video screens highlighting his career, CCR, and that era of Woodstock, hippies & Vietnam - very well done. He is 70 and you'd never know it - he looks & sounds so great. Didn't realize he actually wrote the song "Proud Mary" & was the first to record it with CCR in 1969. I guess I always assumed Ike & Tina Turner wrote it - but no - it was just that their 1971 cover made it so famous. Anyway, great show overall.
Next gig (unless something comes up in the meantime): Deafheaven in a headlining spot at the Wicker Park Fest (my neighborhood) on July 26th. It's one of the many free summer neighborhood street fests in Chicago (one of the biggest), so can't beat free - haha (well, there is a "suggested donation" of $5). I believe Sgt. B has spoken of Deafheaven here & I know they've gotten a lot of buzz among the music press. Need to finally give them a serious listen before the gig!
