Re: “Forecastle Festival at Louisville's Waterfront Park, 7/18/14-7/20/14

Whoever was working the cameras for the screens during The Replacements' set was on point. Watching the bro-dudes with their backwards ballcaps singing along at the top of their lungs and pumping their fists to "Androgynous" was certainly a highlight. Paul seemed engaged and I got the feeling that he knows just how good he is. Watching Tommy thrash around just like the old days was a blast too. And they were tighter than most of the shows I remember from seeing them at Cantrell's, Exit/In and Roosters back in the day.

Re: “Forecastle Festival at Louisville's Waterfront Park, 7/18/14-7/20/14

To be clear, The Replacements set was GREAT; a total blast to watch. But there's no denying it was a mess and Paul was clearly frustrated. The presentation suits the band and their legacy, but when I saw them at Riot Fest last year they were much, much tighter, albeit still just rough enough around the edges. I'm glad I got to see both. I think the sloppiness and slacker approach of doing one rehearsal per gig for sporadic fly-out dates is what's keeping this reunion legit. When the band was fucking up, that's when I really felt like I was seeing The Replacements.

Everyone that I talked to said The Replacements killed it. I mean, it's The Replacements, not Rush. Personally I'd be upset if they blew through a technically perfect set.

Bummed GOASTT was added to the bill after it had already sold out. Hoping to catch them in town again soon.

Re: “RCA Studio A Owner Harold Bradley Opposes Historic Overlay, Calls Building 'Not Worth Saving'

Mr. Bradley's property would be worth a fraction of the amount were it located in a less desirable city. Folks who've partaken in the success of Nashville should give something back. His self-entitled attitude, however, seems to be all the rage these days.

Re: “Forecastle Festival at Louisville's Waterfront Park, 7/18/14-7/20/14

One set that you missed in the review: Against Me! Trans-singer Laura Jane Grace is a fucking punk-rock superstar and the rest of the band was spot on. Their set was fast and loud while the crowd was electric. This was definitely one of the top performances of the weekend for me.

And I agree with the folks above: Replacements set was perfectly imperfect. The band looked like they were having a great time. I loved it!

I know that The Replacements set was far from perfect and that was ok. They still had enough raucous energy to get the crowd excited. They were definitely having a good time and it just seemed fitting for a bleary eyed, sleep deprived Sunday afternoon stupor.

Re: “Forecastle Festival at Louisville's Waterfront Park, 7/18/14-7/20/14

I was standing right up front and Paul looked like he was having a blast. Those songs were played exactly how they should have been played. The wheels never went off the track and Paul knew exactly what to do when the train started to shake: smash that boomerang guitar.

Also, "Please dear lord, write the goddamn setlist for us if you'd be so kind" might be the best way to open a set ever.

Re: “Lunchtime Poll: Is Weird Al Funny?

Weird Al rules. He is funny and appeals to many different kinds of people. Listen to the song "You Don't Love Me Anymore" or his spoof of Trapped in the Closet called "Trapped in the Drive-Thru." You don't have to bust a gut from laughter, but if you don't understand why people enjoy a guy who can cleverly extract something of pure silliness out of these bloated, ubiquitous pop songs, then it's not Weird Al's fault you won't dare to be stupid.

I'm sorry but there wasn't one thing wrong with The Replacement's set.

Re: “Vanilla Ice and Coolio to Bring Sadness, Failure to Tin Roof July 25

Really bummed at this writer's take on this. More and more, your publication has become a soapbox for your writers to drive home the point that they are way hipper than anyone else. It's such a shame that a magazine with such a large reach chooses to print words that tear people down. Last time I checked, this is Music City, USA, and there is room for all kinds here. Let's strive to support each other, and leave the negativity at home.

p.s. I know that this will never get read, but it felt good to say it :)

Re: “Lunchtime Poll: Is Weird Al Funny?

Weird Al has had a few good ones, a lot of fair ones, and some very bad ones. Since he doesn't drink, do drugs, or talk dirty, his rated G humor is very limiting in terms of what he can do. It's why so much of his material winds up being about food. What else is there to talk about? That said, he's a nice guy, who's at least mildly amusing, and you can't help but kinda root for him. And he isn't Adam Sandler, which is good.

Like hell it wasn't. I showed up one night a few days after he built the thing and there was an extension cord ran to it from a switch in his shed.

Author attempts to be witty. Fails. This show will exactly what it's supposed to be: fun. Come down off your high horse, cool guy.

Re: “KISS and Def Leppard at Bridgestone Arena, 7/16/14

Quite certain not a single person in attendance was looking to expand their musical prowess or seeking some sort of enlightenment. It's entertainment people. Lighten up!!!
I am a 50 year old guitar player who spent the majority of my "professional" time in cover bands just having a good time. You know, not taking it too seriously. And yes i've played Rock and Roll all night hundreds of times.

My wife, 15 year old aspiring drummer son and i drove down from Columbus, Ohio to take in the show and experience your storied city. I did wonder how much of the show was canned, however, it was exactly what I expected. Never was much of a kiss fan and def leppard has always been adequately entertaining given the "depth" of their material. That being said, DL delivered musically and Kiss definitely knocked the stage show out of the park. All in all we had a great time and my son was able to witness a show performed by true veterans.

Speaking of veterans, this tour is benefitting injured veterans. A more than worthy cause.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Nashville and look forward to a return visit. You all should be proud of your city and try to not get too high and mighty.
