This Week In Set Lists: Pixies, Kings Of Leon, Tom Petty, Rush, Etc.
Rocks Off has been both eagerly anticipating and dreading this week for months now. Anticipating because several of our all-time favorite bands are playing within the span of a few days, as are a couple of our favorite newer bands (though neither is especially new anymore) and one that we started out liking before ignoring them for several years and then, after finally coming around to the album that made them the newest American band to break into the arena/amphitheater atmosphere, begrudgingly sort of like again. (Guess which one that is.)
Dreading, though, because we also enjoy much more mundane activites such as eating, sleeping, reading, feeding our cat and, well, not doing anything at all. Rocks Off doesn't think we're going to get to do much of that this week. Boo hoo, we know.
Rocks Off is not going to every show this week - we couldn't even if we wanted to. But between us, Rocks Off Jr. and a couple of fearless freelancers, all the following shows will be covered right here between now and next Monday. Since we were curious ourselves, we looked up each one on concert wiki setlist.fm to see what we were in for. We thought we'd share it with our readers in case you're on the fence about participating in any of what we've come to call "Hell Week."
Bear in mind set lists are subject to change, but probably won't, at least not much. Of these, only Drive-By Truckers and Anthrax are not from the same tour that brings these artists to Houston. See you at the merch booth.
