Looking forward to this: Rollins Band in August...

Later this month, I'll be going to see Rollins Band along with The Riverboat Gamblers and X at the Avalon club in Boston. It should be a great show and after reading this post from Henry himself, I'm looking forward to it even more.

I also read a very positive review of the show here which has me pretty excited too see this one.

The main reason I'm going to this show is to see Rollins Band but I am looking forward to seeing The Riverboat Gamblers and X as well, even though I admit, I know nothing about those two bands, other than their reputation.

I will have to download some of their tunes before the show so that I will know a few of them. I have heard some good things about the Riverboat Gamblers and, even though X is not a band I am familiar with, they have a legendary status, so I am expecting to see a really great show.

My favorite band, Social D, is coming back around to Boston in October and the tickets for that show have already arrived here at my house. And I found out today that The Supersuckers will be the opening band for this one. Yup, Social Distortion and The Supersuckers. Dude, that is such a phenomenal line up. That show going to be fucking awesome. I am really excited for that one.

I go to all these shows by myself now. In some ways it's cool. If a band comes around that I want to see, I just check with the Wife to make sure she does not have me booked for something, then I order the tickets. No chasing people around asking, 'hey you want to go see a band with me?' and getting either no response or, the excruciatingly lame, 'I'm too old'. Plus, there's no wondering where somebody has dissapeared to either before, during or after the show is over. When it's all done, there's nobody to worry about but myself. Maybe grab a beer to wind down or just jump in the car and take off for home.

At the same time though, I have to admit, sometimes it is kind of sad in a way that I go to shows by myself these days. Oh well. That is the way it is and I always have a good time so it's not really a big deal. It was weird going to shows by myself at first, but I am used to it now and actually have grown to like it, so there you go.
