I saw Leftover Salmon over the summer, that might have been it.

Very little. Saw Saucerful in April, and Billy in December. Getting old.

Holy shit @funktastic and @opsopcopolis. Impressive!

Not many. Only 4 UM shows (8/18, 10/18, 10/19, and 11/9), which is my lowest count since 2009, and half my previous low in any other year since 2010.

I also saw my second King Crimson show, third Morglbl, and ~sixth Consider the Source. First times for me were Polyphia, Garaj Mahal, and Mastodon.

That’s all I can recall off hand.

Hmm…light year compared to a couple years past but it was a good one. May be missing a couple

A few UM shows, Tool, Flecktones, Fleetwood Mac, Railroad Earth, John Mayer, Punch Brothers, JRAD.

Strong start but my son was born 9/21 and I haven’t seen a show since. I’m hoping to visit a buddy and hit the UM San Diego show with him. If not it will have to wait til Chicago WSP x2 + UM South Bend.

Anderson Paak terrible live show :frowning:
Thievery Corporation
June Jam(small AZ fest) had my DJ debut lol

really? i’ve heard an anecdote or two of people really enjoying this show last year so just curious what was terrible about it

Yeah I’ve heard nothing but awesome things about anderson paak live

If you want to see him play the drums he did that for about 10 minutes of his set. The rest of the time it was like a pop bullshit show where he ran around, shouted out single people between every song, and changed his clothes a bunch.

Probably didn’t help that it was a festival set in Vegas with a terrible crowd, but still the show was pretty wack regardless.

I saw him in May and thought it was great. Production was top notch, band was killer.
