I'm really into music, and always find it interesting and insightful to know what other people listen to. You can tell a lot about someone's personality by their taste in music, in my opinion.

I'm into all sorts of weird and wonderful artists and bands, old (but not too old) and new alike, and am constantly on the search for new and enjoyable projects to listen to. I'll post the last few things I acquired:

Bonobo - Solid Steel Presents: It Came from the Sea and the 2-CD set Days to Come
DJ Shadow - The Less You Know, The Better
Rob Crow - He Thinks He's People
M83 - Hurry Up, We're Dreaming
Two Fingers - self-titled (Amon Tobin side project)

I have been listening to country music. Or I should say Abbey has been and I go along. I can't say I am a fan but some of it is doable. I have recently gone to a Randy Rogers concert (they kind of suck). But I enjoy some stuff from Jason Boland.

Im on a hard core Tom Waits kick, but thats been most of my adult(ish) life. I recently had a hankering to listen to some old school Green day. I think i listened to Dookie and Kerplunk like 5 times on Saturday.

Randy Rogers I think is but I am not sure if Jason Boland is considered pop country. Red Dirt Country I think is the category for him.

I had a college buddy introduce me to Tom Wait's music and I have loved it ever since. I played his rendition of "Somewhere" for my parents when I visited them a couple weeks back, they did not care for it.
I picked up "Rome" the other day, it is produced by Danger Mouse and was inspired by spaghetti westerns music. It was recorded on vintage equipment and features a lot of the original musicians as well as Jack White and Norah Jones. I am still in the "getting to know it" phase, but I am enjoying it so far.

Music can definitely be a gateway of insightfulness.

I like everything from Alabama to The Red Hot Chili Peppers to Tupac to Garth Brooks back to Metallica to Lynyrd Skynyrd to Christian. My wife is a praise band leader (plays guitar and lead vocals) as well.

Hip-hop has been my mainstay though, throughout most of my life. I must admit.

My wife and I have gone to many concerts the last couple years too:
Bon Jovi
Kenny Chesney
Tim McGraw
Brad Paisley
Keith Urban etc..

My favorite concert lately has been Guns N' Roses! They freakin' rocked the sprint center last November!

Just a heads up for anyone that may be interested, Buckethead is coming back to town on Friday, 4/20 at the Granada in Lawrence, and is bringing That 1 Guy along with him!
Together, they are [s]two wild and crazy guys[/s] Frankenstein Brothers! ... HAT-1-GUY/

I've seen Bucket and That 1 Guy twice before and both of those shows were mind-blowingly awesome, without a doubt. Really, really looking forward to it, and of course hitting up Free State before the show, a "goin' to see a show in Lawrence" tradition from way back. :)

Just another live show to mention, the one and only Thievery Corporation is coming to KC in October. I'm super excited and definitely never thought they would come here. I've been a fan for many years now.

Anyone else here into 'em? ... ist/807166
