So, we have to curtail our concert spending for a bit, and it is painful to say the least.

What would you do if you could only choose two?

Little Feat and Leon Russell
or
Los Lobos
or
Toots and the Mayalls and Anders Osborne
or
Govt Mule
or
Tedeschi Trucks

I'm going to go with Toots for $200, Alex!

I LOVE Anders Osborne.

They're all good picks though. :)

Oh it's two? Second choice would be TT, although Los Lobos puts on one hell of a show. Yeah, I'm no help. :lol:

i'd go for the cheapest one, and see the others when there is more cash available.

I'd go with Tedeschi Trucks Band and then the Toots & the Maytalls/Andres Osborne show in order. But I am biased about Tedeschi Trucks Band.

That's a tough list to have to narrow down from! :)

TTB would be great, but then how often do you get to see Leon Russell?

Except when they don't, and then it's a yawnfest.

One of the least consistent bands I've ever seen...

Defintely agree with TTB. Los Lobos can be great or boring depending on the mood of David Hidalgo.

The two where everyone else will be seeing the backs of your heads! :lol:

If you can't get those seats, then I'd go with Tedeschi Trucks because they are such an overall talented band that makes you go wow the whole show and Leon Russell because you really don't get many chances to see him plus Little Feat are, well, little feat!

Toots, Mule, Los Lobos if you are still uncertain!

Enjoy!

I am pretty sure they all, except Mule, are Thursdays. Which is the worst night of the week for us to go to shows.

After careful consideration of things such as good seats still available (this issue knocked Feat out of the running), dates, and my husband's refusal to miss Anders Osborne when he is within 50 miles of us, the winners are Toots and Anders and Tedeschi Trucks.

TTB goes on sale in 6 minutes!!

I'm guessing you are looking at these shows in Boston? The Anders/Toots wasn't on my radar until just recently, and Fall River can be difficult to get to on a Thursday night from work in Woburn. We chose Gov't Mule and Tedeschi Trucks Band. :-)

Would it screw up your plans if I told you that The Meters were playing a new venue in Cambridge on the 30th, with Page McConnell on keys?

Look for us at the Mule show (big surprise!)

They're calling themselves the Metermen as it is only 3/4 of the Meters. I saw Page with Porter, Baptiste & Stoltz down in NOLA a few couple years back and he fit in well (big surprise!).

Enjoy the show! :lol:

Tough choice.....However the Feat folk were kind enough to hook me up w/ a gratis ticket for Feat/Leon. So I guess that would be my choice.
