    NorCal music- what's new? What's improved?

    What's everyone, err, the NorCal'ers, been listening to lately? Live or Memorex, or Maxell, I don't care. And don't say The Wall!

    The new Robben Ford is really good, albeit short. If you like blues-rock, you may like this. His new(?) band is solid and tasty. This track sounds really good in the car, with the sub a-boomin'. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6t0QCF6wkU0

    I've also been digging the first Babymetal disc. I know, I'm behind the times, but if you are even behinder than I, it's 15-year-old Japanese girls with a metal *gasp* backdrop. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIKqgE4BwAY Crayz.

    What else. The latest Joe Bonamassa is pretty awesome, speaking of blues-rock.

    Ana Popovic just played at Sierra Nevada's Big Room last Sunday. I'm not a huge fan, but boy, is she cute. Name:  Ana.png

    Plini is playing at Slim's in March. 26 YO guitar virtuoso, recommended by Steve Vai. Going to be an amazing show.

    I do like a good live blues show, actually any good live music show! I saw Joe Bonamassa in New Orleans last year. He’s a phenomenal musician, but a bit to “showy” for me. It was all about Joe, no dancing or standing allowed.
    Gary Clark Jr put on 3 shows in the city a few months back, really enjoyed finally getting to see him live.
    I was fortunate to see Jack White again when he passed through the Bay Area last year. Very good show.
    We’re lucky to have so many music venues of all sizes, live music rocks.
    But to answer the OP question, I am lazy when it comes to what I’m listening to, I put on Blandora because I don’t want to take the time to create playlists, or load more music on my phone!

    I was there at the Rio, it was unlike any other performance I’ve seen. He walked out, told us to enjoy the moment without expectations, then played for an hour and a half, gave a bizarre speech at the end and said the show was over, insisting there would be no encore. I enjoyed it

    It'll grow on you, watch out! I love that kind of music when I'm working on the Photoshops.

    Yeah, their facebook says: "3-piece instrumental stoner rock band from Antwerp"

    There's a lot of good "stoner" stuff on this U-toob chanel: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...k3ARuepgaQCUjo

    How could you live on an electric guitar? Doesn't seem like there'd be enough room. Is it like a tiny house with strings, kinda?

    NorCal music- what's new? What's improved?

    In Palo Alto that living area on a guitar is $1MM! There are many tiny houses around here with strings attached.

    Yeah, it’s probably a little too bold. But Buckethead is pretty special, in the same way NorCal local Les Claypool is special.

    Buckethead is good, but he has several peers that easily rival him. Music is all subject to each person's preference. Personally, I have never been able to get into Buckethead, but I am a huge Joe Satriani fan.

    Plini takes guitar playing and composition to a level that few 26 year olds have achieved. Makes me feel old knowing that he was born a couple weeks after I graduated from high school. There are a lot of young progressive guitarists that are doing amazing things with the old hunk of wood with strings attached.

    From a technical standpoint, there are lots of guitarists that can play lots of notes etc. Lot of stuff I hear today is lots of notes, 4/4 and over predictable chord changes, to me, not very interesting.

    I was speaking of Buckethead's ability to cover many genres and styles of music. From what I've read about him, he has perfect pitch and near perfect musical recall (similar to Hendrix). Musically he reminds me of Frank Zappa, who had an incredibly deep background in music theory, but came off as unusual and never really got the credit he deserved imho.

    Then, there is John McLaughlin, a true guitarist's guitarist. Not many notes, but very, very complex. Try to figure out the time signature...4/4, but is it? This music is really incredible.

    Yeah, there's a new generation that have taken Bernard Purdie's playbook to a whole new level. Triplets with one hand, eights on the other, sixteens on the kick, with six four fills. Crazy stuff.

    Yes!!

    I got tix for April to see Pixies/Weezer. 1990s will never die!!

    For local bands to me in North Bay close to Point Reyes;
    1) new "Healing of the Nation" rasta by Red Lions with Mykal Rose and Binksee
    2) San Geronimo - they often play at Terrapin Crossroads
    3) live shows of El Radio Fantastique are so fun!
