It actually started for me in Fall ’06 when Monica convinced me to join her (and Kent, Mo, Dave et al) at the Austin City Limits Festival
. I usually like my concert environments small and intimate and I wasn’t sure that I would like the festival scene. But she methodically overcame all my objections. I went for two days, and had a blast. Highlights were seeing Massive Attack, Thievery Corporation, Brazilian Girls, TV on the Radio, Iron and Wine, Galactic, Sparklehorse…
Jam in the Dam – in March 2007, I traveled to Amsterdam for 10 days with my 19 year old son, Dan. JitD is really special because it is so small – just 1,500 people, it’s indoors at the Melkweg, and the invited bands play 2 hour sets each night for 3 nights. Very civilized.
