Groovin' my time away

I had the opportunity last night to attend the annual 'Groovin on the Grounds' concert on the LSU Parade Ground. This years lineup included:

A Soup Named Stew (local humor-pop)
Josh Turner (country)
Lyfe Jennings (R&B with a touch of gospel)
Puddle of Mudd (gutiar powered, punch-you-in-the-face rock) *sorry, I am a fan!

Always great to see a free concert, especially one as dear to both my heart and my wife's heart as Groovin. We helped plan/staff the concert a couple of years in our time in undergrad.

But what it got me thinking is that I have gotten a chance to see a number of shows in my short life (maybe a little above average when it comes to the numbers), and I tried thinking of my favorites, so I figured I would share.

Top Teir (hard to order these):
Pearl Jam @ New Orleans Arena 2001
Kiss @ Lafayette Cajundome 1997
Flickerstick @ House of Blues New Orleans
Our Lady Peace @ Groovin on the Grounds 2001
LeAnn Rhymes @ Endymon Extraveganza 2004
GreyStreet Band @ ??? in Lafayette 2001 (I think it was the first time they did the rap medly - on my knees laughing)
Cross Candadian Ragweed @ The Varsity
Cowboy Mouth @ Groovin on the Grounds 1999

Second Teir
The Wreckers @ House of Blues New Orleans 2005
311 @ The Varsity 1999
Molly Ringwalds @ The Caterie 2001 (Only becaue they did an amazing cover of Rush's Tom Saywer and Kiss/G.Brook's Hard Luck Woman)
RUN DMC @ LSU Homecoming 2001
Better than Ezra @ Bonne Fete 1998
Keith Urban @ PMAC 2005

What about you? What shows stick out in your mind? What shows should I be buying a ticket to?

disclaimer:I reserve the right to edit this list becasue I think I am forgetting something here.

Outside the "Box" - Part 2


So glad that I wasn't the only one thinking it (as per the post a couple of months ago), I was starting to worry that I may be the only one drowning in the sea of meaningless buzzwords and off-beat ideas that make zero sense!

How exciting that our two LSU basketball teams are both on a tear and poised to become championship teams very soon (Men's Basketball clinched a share of the SEC title last night).

Alright.. lay it on the line... gimmie some predictions for the LSU Women's Basketball Team? and again for the LSU Men's Basketball team?

And as always with predictions... the phrase "without any injuries or other major unexpected happenings" is included at the end of the statement. Nothing kills a prediction like an injury or a natural disaster... and, God willing, neither happens.
