Isbell is awesome.

I do like the 400 unit though a little more when Shires sits in.

So to elaborate a bit on why I thought the show itself sucked: I find the new songs painfully boring and as I think someone in another thread described, they're just plain cheesy, polar opposites to his other material. I'm all for a change but not at the expense of poor lyrics and uninteresting melodies, etc. Also, the new band that's playing with him mirrors the cheesiness: two keyboardists/guitarists on either side of the stage add very little real substance. His bass player is good, I'm pretty sure he was the same guy that was with him for the 2012 fall tour. And he has a chick on the drums, which is fine, but I thought it was so typical that when Ray was introducing the members at the end of the show she gets the loudest ovation. It's not a big deal but the focus wasn't on the music as much as it seemed to be an emphasis on a certain new "hip" look, which IMO fails every time.

In between songs there was almost an eerie silence in the crowd, like a collective realization that this new music is far inferior to his other stuff. During one of these silences, someone behind me pretty much summed it up by yelling "More Ray, less Black Keys." While I like most of the Black Keys stuff I've heard, in my opinion that kind of music doesn't really come close to the "heartfelt" level of Ray's other material.
Sucks to hear. Going to see his show in Nashvegas and while I haven't listened to a ton of his new stuff, I was hoping it would still be a good show.

Last Show:
Ingrid Michaelson 5.15.2014 - House of Blues - Houston, TX

The songs of hers that I like, I like lot. In general it's not my type of my music. But she's a great entertainer, kind of cute, and I had a blast as a little DMB tune up.

Next Show:
Dave Matthews Band 5.16.14 - Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion - The Woodlands, TX

I saw that Ingrid was playing HoB, but couldn't bring myself to do it. Sitting thru her openers was all I needed. I caught Chuck Mead's set at Discovery Green instead.

Like all opening acts, she was much better in her own element in front of a crowd and a building filled with her fans to a point that makes much more sense. I have never seen an opening act that was even close to as good as that act's own show.

Anyway:

Sorry I couldn't join you there, my friend. The show I saw with them and Jon Brion at McCaw in 2007 was great. Did you tape?

They play in Pittsburgh in July, was up in the air about it. I've heard good things, but really haven't listened to any myself.
