Set times for FYF are out!
Still mulling over options for Saturday, but Sunday looking like this for me

Leaving a little room in on both days for the comedy stage. David Cross was awesome last year!

I'm gonna have to listen to more of her tunes, cuz I mostly didn't get it. There were a couple I thought I could hear again. I get she's sorta goth but I couldn't understand what she was singing. Not bashing, just my .02. For anyone else at the show did it look like she got pO'd at someone in front and just walked off the stage, or is that how she ends her shows?

Next for me is Black Crowes at the Wiltern in Nov. Anyone else her goin?

FYF was great yesterday! Metz' set was blistering- a real knock out. Charles Bradley... maybe my favorite set of the day. So smooth. And I appreciate the cleverness of laying down rubber tiling in front of each stage. Keeping dust to a minimum this year.
Chelsea Wolfe, The Melvins, My Bloody Valentine today. Yeehaa!

I'll change direction here..... Took the kids last night to Taylor Swift. It was supposed to be me, wife and the two girls but my wife was sick so my son grabbed the other ticket. my son was more blown away and happy that we were sitting "on the ice" and just below the scoreboard, center ice. The girls, age 15 and 13 were a screaming mess. My ear drums are still ringing. I really haven't been to a large selection of concerts, they range from Alan Jackson to Elton John, which I think we have seen about 10 times. But last nights show, based on production is probably the best show I have ever seen. Every song was a genuine production and I definitely feel as though we got our moneys worth. Looks like I'll be blasting Taylor Swift in my car for a while, with the windows rolled up of course.

I also had the pleasure of Talor Swift concert a week ago in San Diego. I was not planning on attending, however after my wife was able to secure 4 tickets second row from one of Taylor Swifts people we all decided to go as a family and like you I was very impressed with Ms. Taylor Swift. That girl gets it! San Diego sports arena holds only 11,000 and it was a very intimate concert with 10,500 screaming young girls. I still can't get the high pitch out of my ears. My son just took everything in. At his age 10 he had a ton of little girls around him so I think he was a little intimidated. My daughter was having the time of her life at 13. Unfortunately my kids will think that they get these seats all the time for any concert and they will be sadly disappointed when the seats are in the 300 level.

I give her credit for going to Nashville at 14 to find her dream. Like you, I have been going to older artists concerts such as Springsteen for many,many years and she is not there yet but she is getting closer. She is only 23 so the skies the limit.
