some years the night shows have been pretty decent.
really hoping for another superjam night show this year. hopefully the Soul Rebels w/ Derek Trucks, Nicki Bluhm, and a couple other guests
Nicki Bluhm made an appearance last year, so I'm not sure if she'd be a part of it again. I'm with you, though, the Superjam was the best way to finish off the weekend. Even despite my tired legs, I jumped and danced every minute of that show. So much fun.
Bey & Jay added a second tour date in SF on the 6th
THE THRONE IS RISING
No, it just means people post off-topic drivel in this thread.
How about Bob Weir and Kanye West? Usually "special guest" in San Francisco means Bob Weir. (I'm not being entirely serious)
Outside Lands 12, 13, 14
Summer Sonic 05, 06, 07
Huey Lewis & The News
Their early work was a little too new wave for my taste. But when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far more bitter, cynical sense of humor.
Hey everyone who buys a ticket to Tom Pettys tour gets a copy of his new CD. Where's mine???
So, Josh Ritter...Late add possibility?
Steve Winwood is a possibility since he's opening for Tom Petty on this tour. At the very least, I could see him join Petty for a couple songs which he is known to do.
