Is it my imagination or is this one of the most lame concert seasons in ages? I can't think of one show I am even remotely interested in seeing

^That depends entirely on what kind of music you're into.

I'm taken a roadtrip out to New York City this summer to see one of the few Rage Against the Machine shows... woo!! Other than that I have ticks to see Breaking Benjamin/3 Days Grace/Puddle of Mudd this Sunday at Freedom Hill, should be a good show, only $17.50 for lawn ticks.

$17.50 too much. I thought these "Puddle of Creed-Back" bands had all the same members because they all fucking sound the same. CORPORATE ROCK RULES!

BTW, I agree this is a lame summer for concerts.

seems like some of the best stuff is free stuff. Haven't seen Mitch Ryder around lately -- has he been doing any shows outside europe?

BRMC have become pretty boys with no soul. How could a band come out with such a bang end up being so flat.
Polyphonic Spree is a good catch and Yo La Tango can be a hit or miss depending on what they choose for their set list. But free is free!
Dinosaur jr. I believe, were never anything to get excited about.

You forgot to add Skinny Puppy @ ST. Andrew's on June 2nd.

Skinny Puppy in June and then Black 47 at the Concert of Colors in July are the only ones we'll be heading to.

I want Echo & the Bunnymen at the Tastefest again. I don't think they'll ever be able to match that level of quality for free again. It's ruined all future Tastefests, I'm afraid. :-)

haha- I saw Eddie Money playing a free concert at an Orioles game in Baltimore. He was making jokes about getting DUIs and the only people watching him were homeless or families with young kids. It was quite a scene.

This is absolutely a lame concert season. Not a group that I will pay to see.

Now, to damage my credibility, I am really looking forward to seeing "Weird" Al Yankovic at the CityFest.

I would go see Mitch Rider if I weren't afraid that he would be "mowing" on the gig.

What about "STool" I walked out on them a few years back when the singer dedicated the show to "Sweet Lord Satan".
