November 2007 Might Get Me Back to Concerts.

By: The Dude on the Right
Maybe it was my excitement of getting a ticket to see Garth Brooks at my local movie theater, or maybe it's just because I need to finally get out of my "not reviewing concerts" funk, or maybe I just need to get the fuck out the dude-pad and quit watching TV, or maybe I need to get back with the concert going people, but as look back with regret at all of the concerts I've missed for the year, the end of October and most of November finally might get me off of my ass to review some concerts in Chicagoland.  There are a ton of shows I would like to see, oddly most not legendary (Neil Young and John Fogerty aside), but shows I know have the potential for something great like Kid Rock at the Aragon Brawlroom, I mean Aragon Ballroom, or Sammy Hagar at the "way-to-nice-although-George Thorogood-played there too" Rialto Square Theatre in Joliet, IL.  If I can pull it off quick enough I would like to see "Augustana" at the House of Blues to close October, and as much as I love Marc Cohn, I've never seen Kelly Clarkson and always wanted to, and she's at the Chicago Theater next week.  A Saturday tosses a decision of shooting for radio dude Jonathon Brandmeier in a crazy Sundance Saloon v. Red Jumpsuit Apparatus at a not so crazy Vic Theatre, and then, if I can't get a chance to see Garth Brooks live and in the flesh early in his 9 show stint in Kansas City, I'm sure Stu Gotz would like to see Tori Amos wiggling on her piano stool at the Auditorium Theatre.

And that's only half of November.

Continuing, as much as I would like to see Gary Allan opening up for Keith Urban at the Allstate Arena, I'm thinking I'll like the Shaw/Blades (that's Tommy Shaw from Styx and other bands, and Jack Blades from Night Ranger and other bands) show at Joe's on Weed Street a hell of a lot better if I can get there early enough to get a spot at the front of the stage for photo purposes.  Then there is Vanessa Carlton at the perfect Park West, and even though she has a new album out I would like to see her play "White Houses" (even though Steve Dahl in Chicago at WCKG couldn't seem to get a line in the song right when it came out), but the Thanksgiving holiday might throw a monkey wrench into my seeing  "The Swell Season," the group of musicians from the movie "Once" whom I've come to love lately.

As October comes to a close I'm guessing I'll miss "Hall & Oates" at The Vic due to a reunion weekend, but as December hits, on the 1st, a new dilemma comes:  Shoot for Billy Joel at the Sears Center in Hoffman Estates or stake my spot at the reunion dinner.

The end of October, all of November, and the beginning of December have so many choices.  I suppose I just better get off of my ass and make some, choices that is.  And quit watching so much damn TV.

That's it for this one!  I'm The Dude on the Right!!  L8R!!!
