Tori Amos Live!

The summer concerts are getting warmed up, and the wife and I are aching to go see some shows!

I just found out that Rusted Root will be playing a free show at the Jazz Fest, on East and Alexander, this Saturday. I’d like to go check them out, since I missed all the times that they played at Milestones for a $5 cover charge before they were famous. Then Dudley Dawson plays at the Dubland Underground, which is a show I know I probably won’t make, but I’d like to.

But the big bands are starting up as well. RUSH got it’s set list leaked, and OM-F*ing-G is it cool! In fact, I dare say it’s the coolest set list I’ve ever seen, and the wife scored us soundboard seats at Darien Lake for the 4th of July show. Better still is the fact that a lot of bands have been relaxing their rules about cameras at shows (since, after all, camera phones have made them pretty irrelevant, anyway), so with luck, I’ll be able to get some cool shots of the band when we go. I hope, I hope, I hope. . .

But for sure, I can get pictures of Tori Amos this go round. I’ve always been something of a minor fan, but Sarah is positively nuts for Tori. And with shows like this, I think Tori may just make me a believer:

But I’m going to try to avoid being one of those intensely annoying fans that crowds her meet-and-greets, if I can. Shouldn’t be hard. . .
