Slow Wednesday: Rate The Newly Released Bass Hall Schedule

Oct. 24: Marc Broussard and special guest Caitlin Crosby - Never heard of them.

Nov. 2: Doobie Brothers - Without Michael McDonald? No way

Nov. 3: Chanticleer - Never heard of them. Cool name.

Nov. 14: Rufus Wainwright with Police Woman - Never heard of them. Cooler name.

Nov. 17: ABBA Mania - Probably an ABBA cover band. My mind is mush from hearing "Mamma Mia" on cable for the last six months.

Nov. 24-25: Lyle Lovett & His Large Band - I can't name a single song he sings.

Dec. 14: Michael Martin Murphey’s "Cowboy Christmas" - I was out at "Cowboy"

Dec. 15: Wynonna: A Classic Christmas - 1/2 of the Judds is 1/2 of the Christmas

Dec. 30: Robert Earl Keen - Wise County Night at Bass Hall

Feb. 22: The Band of the Irish Guards and the Pipes, Drums and Highland Dancers of the Royal Regiment of Scotland - I bet, of all the shows, this is pretty good.

Feb. 23: Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons - Also known as "Ears Bleeding Night".

Feb. 24: TAO: The Martial Art of Drumming - I wouldn't mind seeing this.

Mar. 2-4: The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess - That's just too high tone for me.

Mar. 22: Los Lobos and Leo Kottke - I know one song! I know one song!

Mar. 23: Joe Bonamassa - A question mark just formed over my head.

Mar. 25: What It Is! Featuring Mavis Staples, Booker T. Jones and JJ Grey - I almost bought tickets when I thought it read Booker T and the MG's.

Half of the Judds? Half? Have you seen her lately?

Joe bonamassa would be a good show. Amazing guitarist.

I'm in for Porgy and Bess, but the rest I haven't heard of or they involve something to do with country music or cowboys, which counts me OUT. Not a big fan of a bunch of drums,either. Sounds like a headache waiting to happen.

Robert Earl Keen is awesome. He actually sings country music, not the b bop that sissy lawyers often refer to.

I'm not much of a concert-goer myself, but I have to say that Lyle Lovett at Bass Hall is truly worth seeing. He puts on a heck of a show that is worth every penny.

BuBear, your blog sucks today!

Chanticleer sounds vaguely gay. I could never associate myself with such forms of gaydom.

Booker T & the MGs:
Original members of the group were Booker T. Jones, etc.
Get your popcorn ready!

1/2 of Wynonna should last you through all 12 days of Christmas

You can claim mind mush due to ABBA, but from my experience, it won't clear you of a murder rap

Check out Leo Kottke Machine Number 2.....

Copy 'n paste no linky pops.

He would be a total trip to see...but you're probably not cool enough to be let in.

Robert Earl Keen & Lyle Lovett are as good as it gets! Used to listen to them in the MSC Basement Coffee House down in Aggieland. Great musicians. Keen's Merry Christmas from the Family song is Wise County through & through. Listen to it on YouTube if you are not familiar.

And yes, Lovett has always had that strange hair thing.

Marc Broussard is pretty good, too.

Feb 22nd is Gay Night at Bass Hall.

When Robert Earl Keen plays there, it is actually called "Five Pound Bass Hall"

Barry, you need to go see Lyle Lovett! He's great! Try his album "Joshua Judges Ruth"

Does anyone on here remember the Cellar in downtown Ft. Worth.....Long way from the Bass but good music.... :)

Anonymous said...

HATE Lyle Lovett, all his songs sound the same. I cringe when one of them comes on the radio.

I'd go see Robert Earl Keen though.

I didn't judge Ruth. I just gave her 20 bucks and went home without my underwear

Porgy & Bess will be awesome! Go see it and I be you'll love it.

Shouldn't it be called just The Judd.

RPM said...

Robert Earl Keen is greatness. I might have to get tickets to that.

All I can say is that list is not nearly complete. I volunteer at the Bass and am scheduled for several events that are not mentioned. Maybe someone should get the actual performance list and inform our vigilant blog leader.

Hell yeah I remember the Cellar,actually it was upstairs and had black walls.

I snuck in there several times when I was 16. I saw Nitzinger,Bugs Henderson and Bloodrock.

Those were the days!

Ah crap. Suddenly, when you think this blog is a complete waste of time, it shows value.

Almost forgot that Paul Thorn is going to be at the McDavid portion of the Bass Hall on the 28th of this month.

If you have never seen PT and band in concert, it is well worth it. Best music since Stevie Ray.

Keen & Lovett and about four other guys playing on their porch in the ghetto on Church St in College Station. It don't get no better.

They also were on an Ag field trip that went through Nashville. They played on the stage of the Ryman Auditorium and had folks coming in off the street.

Wasn't Lyle Lovett married to Julia Roberts for about 2 days?

Barry --- You'd dig Rufus Wainright. He's pop, singer-songwriter, goodness. And despite his southern-sounding name, he's miles away from country.
