Though by no means a Gorillaz fan, I caught Demon Days Live on HDNet and was impressed enough with the concert to splurge on the DVD

There have been a few good ones on recently that I've recorded/watched, sometimes rewatched and enjoyed.

- Cyndi Lauper
- Dion (just started watching it)
- Alison Krauss & Union Station.

This Sunday watch or record "Standing in the Shadows of Motown" an excellent movie. (9PM, Midnight, 3AM EDT)

Make sure you extend the times a bit at the start and end - I've found HDNet not to be "exact" on their times.

I've been lobbying hard for them to get Nellie McKay. That would be something to see.

I wish there was a 'Canadian' version of HDNet. I love their mix of content and programming, and wouldn't mind seeing something like it, but with more Canadian content as far as the (live) music goes.

I'm finally getting HDnet on Starchoice. Does anyone know if they regularly run repeats? I'd love to see that Doobie concert.

They run quite a few repeats, but I haven't detected much of a pattern yet. It may take many months.

Enjoyed another one this week - Crash Test Dummies, recorded in 2005 in a church in Duluth. Great sound.

It appears to be running on April 17th.

3:00 PM MT The Doobie Brothers Live at Wolf Trap
The Doobie Brothers have never sounded better! This concert, recorded at a sold out Wolf Trap National Park in Virginia, contains all their most famous songs, plus some rarities. From rock to soul to blues, this set contains a lot of magic. Tune in and "listen to the music"!
57 ... I agree with you on that Crash Test Dummies concert. It was very good. I'm going to enjoy HDNet alot because of these concerts.

Yeah, once a week I go to the HDNet Canada site and review the listings. I believe that many of the concerts are around 5PM Eastern.

We watched the Cyndi Lauper concert and that was good as well. HDNet is probably one of the most watched stations in our house. They have a very good variety of concerts which sometimes make us discover how good so and so are. Dick Dale was a good surfing guitar player.

I recorded John Mellancamp live at Walter Reed.

One observation - he had a video monitor at his feet that was scrolling the lyrics?!? One would think that after 30 years of singing his own songs, he would know the words by now?

The venue was very intimate (and uncrowded) which must have been a treat for those present.

I haven't heard any songs from him for many years and I see he now leans more to the Country & Western side.

Here is an aside:

Back in his John Cougar days, he once opened for The Beach Boys in London, Ont. He ended up throwing a tantrum on stage, cursing the promoter (stating he was too big of a ROCK star to be opening for The Beach Boys), kicking the drums off the stage, and then storming off without finishing his set. He later came back to London for a free show to make up for it.

The HDNet show had a piece on the history of the venue and listed some of the bigger stars that played there for the troops. The last artist mentioned was The Beach Boys! LOL. Oh, how I wish the interview with him would've had a question about The Beach Boys.
