I admit, I am itching (no, not from the vaccine) to see some live music at my favorite theater locally, in Champaign. :( I hope they can start to book some things for fall at least.

I've been lucky enough to catch some tribute bands here this month and back in the summer. This was only because the venue served food and could limit size to 25%. Have you ever seen either of these bands? They are both wicked good at their respective genres. Highly recommended.

My wife and I rode our bikes on the Bay Trail from East Palo Alto to Mountain View, 20 mile round trip and kept seeing the Shoreline Amphitheatre tents on the horizon, so ended up being the distance goal. I have been to hundreds of live shows there, always with giant crowds of people, but yesterday it was so weird to go there, was like a ghost town, to look at everything really brought back memories and the longing to see a live concert again.

Always saw the great gigs advertised for this venue, like Steely Dan etc., but never got over there, looks like the front of an Ice Skating Rink.

Shoreline! Great venue, loved how the backing curtains (?) looked like open parachutes. Bill Graham knew how to make a show extraordinary.

Saw the Grateful Dead there multiple times, and the lights were amazing, and at a summer solstice show, Mac computers were used to make a giant overhead oval shape with alternating closeup views of the musicians on stage and psychedelic oil color patterns. Memorable other shows included Jethro Tull, REM, Robert Plant, Moody Blues, and of course the yearly major event of Neil Young's acoustic Bridge concerts: James Taylor, Simon & Garfunkle, Bowie, Elton John, the Heart sisters, etc.

Remember how you are told to never look at the sun? At one Grateful Dead show I was returning from the bathroom and saw a wall of hundreds of young kids, their backs to the stage, and staring at the beautiful sunset. Hmm . . . I suppose they were, um, heightened in the senses!

I have my ticket from last year carried over for this festival (if it happens, could still get cancelled as there is no Covid Insurance cover for festivals). But if it does happen (the week after Fairport's Cropredy Fest) then Hawkwind & Van Der Graaf Generator on a festival line-up, the 70s aren't dead!
