…..It’s dollars to donuts at our state fair.  It’s the best state fair in our state.

I love the musical “State Fair.” That is completely irrelevant to the rest of this post but I thought I’d mention it.  Particularly for S & D who I know appreciate a good musical.

I went to the Utah State Fair last night to see Chris Cagle.  It was very good.  I really enjoy concerts.  Especially country shows.  The entire genre impresses me because when you like someone on a CD or the radio, you know you will enjoy them live.  What you hear recorded, is generally what you hear live.  There are a few exceptions.  But for the most part they are pretty straightforward.  I’m sure you have all been to a show where you are disappointed because the sound is not what you thought it would be.

My top 5 (Good shows and also good artists)

  1. Counting Crows
  2. Live
  3. Rusted Root
  4. Elton John/Billy Joel
  5. Guster

My worst 5 (I just expected so much more)

  1. Ben Folds Five (They just sounded really bad)
  2. Eric Clapton (Though there was no fault of his – it was the venue 100%)
  3. Journey (The new guy is no Steve Perry – and no one wants to hear the new stuff…stick to the hits)
  4. Nickelback (Just wasn’t a fan to begin with and was taken under duress)
  5. Red Hot Chili Peppers (I’ve heard they are normally good – I just saw them when they were too cold to move let alone sing and play instruments)
