Springsteen in Seattle next Monday. Show #13
^ Just saw Larkin Poe last night. I highly recommend and need to see them again.
I've kept an eye on vids of some of their performances the past year or so. Looks to me like they've picked up the pace of things... adding more higher energy songs into the mix with the quieter ones. Gotten even more interesting.
If they were in town I'd definitely see them. This show's in DC. We'll see.Quote
I nominate them to open a show for the Stones.
Merit, or having a following, or being out there touring your ass off for years and earning your spot, aren't the standards anymore. Bands' chances depend on how many Stones support gigs, if any, Thomas Tull decides to leave for other people this year. Mick apparently will sell him whatever he wants for himself and his hireling Ghost Hounds.
Does Larkin Poe have big money laying around to try to bid against GHs? Probably not. So best of luck to them and to every other deserving young act out there who has earned a boost, needs and deserves a boost, but are going up against a selfish billionaire who wants these stages to feed his own ego.
I'll see Larkin Poe tonight, second time for me.
John Mellencamp Vancouver next week.
