Love Josh Ritter. Saw him at the Birchmere several years ago. It was the perfect intimate venue for his music.

9:30 club, valentines day show. He played for 2 and a half hours. It was epic. It was like he wanted to play there all night and was just having fun and enjoying it.

Catherine Filene Shouse donated the land. It wasn't like Filene's Basement was the naming rights sponsor.

OK that does it. You guys have made me curious about this Dead Can Dance group. I'm buying tickets just to check 'em out.

Shame on you for mentioning DCD and Yanni in the same breath! Seriously--Yanni? Don't they sell his CDs in gift baskets with Danielle Steele novels and bath salts? He's like the Handsy Yoga Instructor of male singers. Plus he looks like John Stossel, wearing pajamas.

But hey--if the Mustachioed One gives you pleasure, then more power to you. (I did admit to seeing Johnny Mathis.)

For the public record, Dead Can Dance is nothing like Yanni!

Hope you and Caladium both enjoy the show!

Hey, don't knock me for liking Yanni. My father got me into that a long time ago. His music is amazing. Watch a couple of videos on YouTube..the live stuff. BTW, the moustache is long gone.

I know that DCD is nothing like Yanni..i enjoy all types of music.

I'm sad to hear that Yanni is now sans 'stache. He was a veritable piano-playing Ned Flanders. Perhaps I even may have unwittingly enjoyed his music--while on hold with a credit-card company, for example. Or while viewing My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

My wife has dragged me to see Andrea Bocelli and Riverdance--so I suppose I have no musical street-cred left to lose!

I have seen the strangest assortment of concerts at Wolftrap and had a blast at some very unexpected times, so my street cred is even worse. Who woulda guessed we'd have so much fun at Huey Lewis & The News! I mean, I was kind of embarrassed to go to that show. Left work early and didn't brag about what I was going to see that night, that's for sure. But you know what, that guy may be old but he was fun and the crowd was hilarious. It was one big party. And speaking about parties one of my favorite concerts last year was Indigo Girls, of all things. That's another who woulda thunk, but it turned out to be a fun night. As soon as it got started it became obvious that the audience was me and my husband and a whole lotta lesbians, which in and of itself is not such a notable thing but those gals could dance! Everyone around us was having so much fun they even got my husband up and dancing (well, more like swaying just a little-- he's just not the type who does that).

Around 1989-'90, Indigo Girls had broad, cross-demographic appeal and got a lot of airplay on alternative radio stations. "Closer to Fine" was a huge hit. I may or may not have had the self-titled album on cassette!

I can relate to your experience at their show; at the Johnny Mathis show, we were the only hetero couple under the age of 50 and probably the youngest people there. The dude has got some pipes.

I really want Rob Zombie to play Wolf Trap. I've read he puts on a real spectacle of a show. (I refuse to go to the Nissan Pavilion or Meriwether.) But I won't hold my breath.
