David Wilcox Review

What a great show, he never disappoints. The Rhythm Room isn't a great venue for a lot of acts, but for his one-man-with-a-guitar show, it is perfect. Despite the non-functioning AC, the show was very cool.

I met a very nice gentleman, an attorney who has worked in many facets of the law through several decades. A message from the universe, perhaps, as we had a lovely conversation about his work, the joys/challenges he finds everyday, and the path to get there (If there are any Wildcats reading this, he got his JD from U of A).

Many of the song selections, too, seemed to speak directly to me - not hard, David Wilcox songs are just that way - but tonight they hit just the right nerve; Start With The Ending, Inside of My Head, Ask For More....

He had a great turn-out and a very appreciative audience. He was a very appreciative performer, as well, and seemed to be enjoying his job on stage as much as we were enjoying our job in the seats.

I had a bit of an unrelated disappointment after the show, though I expected that it would turn out that way. Life doesn't always go the way we would like it to, I guess.

I will see if I can put together a David Wilcox playlist in the next few days, I know you will enjoy it. (Yes, I know I have posted his stuff before, but it has been a while)

Upcoming at the Rhythm Room: Over The Rhine Sept 25th

I'm reading between the lines here--or maybe I just missed a confessional post--but has something gone awry with what's-his-initial? You know, the guy who makes great hamburgers, who got the fortune cookie about making circles with mints, etc.?

No relation to what's-his-initial at all (that would be D, btw)

I have become a solo concert goer.

I think that you and SAJU should go to concerts together. He a music lover and it will minimize his time in grocery stores.

There is nothing wrong with grocery stores, that's where I met SG - hence the moniker, "Safeway Guy"

SAJU, I recommend the ice cream aisle :-)

BTW: I don't really mind going solo that much anymore, depending on the venue. These shows at The Rhythm Room are perfect because it is literally just down the street from my office, the parking is easy, and the crowd can never be so big as to be overwhelming.

A rock concert at the Dodge is a slightly different story.

SAJU's writings of his experiences in grocery stores is blogdom gold. I guess I was hoping for likewise entertaining concert reviews.

For concert reviews of that caliber he would have to be there on his own.

I would just crap cramp his style :-)

Two Points:

A) I'm sure you wouldn't; and,

B) I'm assuming you meant "cramp".

Posted by: Woods at August 31, 2007 10:48 AM


I did, in fact, mean "cramp" - but, crap works too. It would really crap your style to have a girl hanging around when you are scoping the babes...

On the contrary -- show up with a cute girl and other cute girls think you must have something going for you. That's known as "social proof."
