OT: Ian McLagan on tour

Mac is taking a solo trip around the States and is going to be in my neck o' the woods on July 4th...but I cannot find any information about what time he's playing. I've searched online and emailed the sponsors with no luck. Apparently there's music on 5 stages, but the acts and showtimes are a closely guarded secret. Any Chicago/Milwaukee fans know anything about his gig at Harbor Park in Kenosha WI on the 4th?

I'm going to the show in Kenosha as well because it's half the distance than the Fitzgeralds show tonight and is free. Found this which shows him playing from 7:30 to 9:00. Semi-Twang plays before him and they are good as well. Weather should be ok tomorrow I hope.

Has anyone seen Ian play recently? He is playing at a really nice club in Seattle next weekend & I was wondering if it was worth the effort.

Ain't that all too true, Munich.
I work up at Apple and it's just about impossible
to get down MoPac to catch an entire set.

Unfortunately, he's not touring with any band, Bump or otherwise. It's just him.

Cool. I'm reading his book All The Rage now after seeing some many glowing references to it on here, and it's great so far.

the Seattle gig was good. Just Mac alternating between an electric keyboard and a grand steinway, with electric bass on most tracks. Not as fun as the full Bump Band but it did have an intimate feel with nice stories and chatter. A very nice venue, dinner theatre style.

I didnt go, but I saw a review the KC Star other day... [www.kansascity.com]

Concert Review
Ian McLagan offers a lively career retrospective
July 7
By BILL BROWNLEE
Special to The KC Star


Midway through his lively performance Saturday at Danny's Bar & Grill in Lenexa, Ian McLagan was startled when he noticed the live video projection behind the stage. Jon Notarthomas, McLagan's sole accompanist, attempted to explain the concept to the diminutive rock and roll veteran.


"They have smaller scale version of you on the wall," Notarthomas said.

"That's hardly possible," McLagan exclaimed.

McLagan, 68, may be small in stature, but he demonstrated why he's a musical giant for a meager but appreciative audience of about 50. A richly detailed story about how he joined the Small Faces in 1965 was one of many ingratiating tales McLagan related. Upon his first meeting with his similarly-sized band mates, McLagan said he realized that "I'd just found my brothers." The London-based band quickly evolved from a slight pop act into worthy rivals of the Who.

McLagan chose to perform only one song by the Small Faces, the ebullient ditty "Get Yourself Together." Following a few changes in personnel, the band was renamed the Faces in 1969. The four Faces selections revived by McLagan served as vital reminders of the band's short-lived brilliance. The randy "You're So Rude" recalled the Faces' rambunctious sensibility. Tender readings of the emotionally wrenching "Debris" and the bittersweet "Glad and Sorry" had a few longtime fans fighting back tears.

Following the dissolution of the Faces, McLagan worked as a session musician and launched an inconspicuous solo career. A few of McLagan's recent songs were just as powerful as his more heralded work. He described the stunning "A Little Black Number," the lament of a young widow, as "dark but well-intentioned." "Hello Old Friend" combined the charm associated with British music halls with the boozy barroom swagger that permeates much of his work.

The song exposed the slight deterioration of McLagan's vocal range. He sang with an ingratiating and remarkably expressive rasp. Complemented by Notarthomas' contributions on bass and guitar, McLagan's keyboard work remained impressive. His blues-based playing reflected his wry wit. He joked about his insistence on loading the set list with unfamiliar material — "here's another one you won't know"— before playing a new song during his one-hour-and-forty-minute appearance.

Steve Marriott, the powerhouse vocalist for the Small Faces, died in 1991. Rod Stewart of the Faces has recast himself as a crooner. Yet even for an audience of 50, McLagan remains fiercely determined to performing the rock and roll he so clearly loves with steadfast exuberance.

APPROXIMATE SET LIST

Hello Old Friend, It's Been a Long Time, Little Girl, A Little Black Number, Warm Rain, Never Say Never, I'm Your Baby Now, Mean Old World, Get Yourself Together, Trapped, Don't Say Nothing, We've Got Nothing In Common, Sha La La La, An Innocent Man, Glad and Sorry, I Will Follow, Debris, You're So Rude, Cindy Incidentally

Yes my dear, I was there. You? I was at the end of the second row near the camera. Great show. His imitation of Paul Weller almost had me in the aisle laughing. He nailed it! Got to talk to, I think his name is Paul, the gentleman from the fan film in the red shirt and black hat. Sorry I missed you if you were there. Going to try and make it up to Long Beach today.
