2009 03 14 – 2802 – Washington DC – Shamrock Festival – Flogging Molly

Final act of the Shamrock Festival at the RFK Stadium Fairgrounds in Washington, D.C.

Despite the cold, despite the rain, despite the crowds, and despite the long haul just to get a bite to eat or a drink: the crowd turned out en masse for Flogging Molly, and there was certainly energy in the air.

However, mirroring the quality of their beer, the Bud Light Stage seemed to have some audio problems. With almost every song, the microphones totally cut out and the audience was left with only the sounds of themselves. Furthermore, as far as the band could tell: they were still on. So they kept playing, leaping, and moving all about… it was like watching Flogging Molly mime their songs.

They did catch on a couple times that the sound was giving out, but the technicians seemed unable to do a thing to fix it… even their top songs such as "Drunken Lullabies" and "Rebels of the Sacred Heart" cut out; and to add insult to injury… their last song of the set (and the last song of the entire Shamrock Festival) cut out.

Bravo Flogging Molly, of what we could hear; but ouch to DC, Bud, and the fans.

2009 08 01 – 8111 – Washington DC – 930 Club – Xavier Rudd

Xavier Rudd was phenomenal: the best concert I’ve been to at the 9:30 Club, and very likely in the running (and perhaps winner) of the best concert I’ve ever been to… ever.

I never heard of Xavier Rudd until about a month before the concert, when my friend Lindsey sent me a link to a Youtube video & asked if I wanted to go. The sound of the didgeridoos w/ a rock ensemble instantly grabbed my attention, so I readily said "yes".

Xavier is a relaxed guy… he’s so peaceful, and his charisma grabs at the audience — drawing them right into every song. His talent is tough to equate: he swapped instruments every song, and I was impressed with how — in the same song: he could play a guitar, play percussion, sing vocals, and blow into the didge. Bravo.

The two others on stage — one on drums and one on bass — both had distinct personalities; and both frequently emerging from their background positions (if ever it could be said they were much more background than Xavier was). It’s rare to see bassists stay in the spotlight: but this bassist was on center stage the whole show.

Even the stagehand joined on banjo at one point, and dagnabit he was good… if only they put some more light on him & gave him a little more airtime. It’s not often a stagehand has his own stagehand.

When I saw the Disco Biscuits back on 4/20: the show was stellar, but the crowd was disappointing. Granted, I’m straight edge… so I don’t smoke nor drink… so yeah, I was well aware that I was seeing a pot band on April 20th. Nonetheless, the crowd was downright obnoxious and ruined what could’ve otherwise been a great show. Here with Xavier Rudd, however: the crowd was by and large coherent and able to leap about, scream, and throw up their arms without spilling their drinks all over the place or falling into everyone around them.

One exception was during the last two songs, when in separate events the girl behind me dropped her beer on me… and then the girls in front of me rushed the stage — causing every other woman in the front to also rush; and women further back to make an attempt. One girl on stage may or may not have been aware that she was falling out of her dress in front of everyone. The woman that ended up in front of me — almost separating me from Lindsey & successfully separating a nearby couple — got to experience my "OMG I’M A DRUNK FANBOY LOLZ" personality, which is amazing at getting annoying people away from me. She got out of there in about a minute.

I’ve gone from having never heard of Xavier Rudd to joining every social networking outlet he has… now I’m holding my breath for when he returns, and I have a newfound desire to pick up a didgeridoo during my trek to Oceania this winter.
