I beg your pardon.

I was kidding...sort of. I realised today that when Nirvana's Nevermind was released, Sgt Pepper's was 24 years old (I was working at Turtle's at the time).

Nevermind was released 28 years ago.

Meanwhile, I was at the St. Augustine Amphitheater (I refuse to call it "The Amp") 3 times recently for Vampire Weekend, Kacey Musgraves and a free show with Kurt Vile. Would have been back again this Saturday for the awesome local Latin band LPT, but I don't feel like driving there yet again. Dad Rock Live is seriously doing something wrong.

Really, because I didn't realize Machine Gun Kelly, Lumineers, Zac Brown Band, Blink 182, Brantley Gilbert is considered Dad Rock but ok. Not saying they don't get their fair share of "dad rock" but they've got a lot better of the years with a variety of different acts.

I don't know about those others, but Blink 182 and the Lumineers are definitely dad rock.

Lol, okay because i'm pretty sure the context of dad rock in this thread is groups like Chicago, The Doobie Brothers and Sting.

Yes, traditionally, "dad rock" is music from the 60's and 70's. But those "dads" are granddads now. There's also nothing wrong with it. The only issue is that the vast majority of shows that Daily's Place has gotten are, well, older music for older crowds. In format and capacity St. Augustine Amphitheater is nearly identical to Daily's, and it's much more poorly located. But they're killing Daily's when it comes to getting newer acts.

And even a lot of the newer acts they're getting also appeal to that same older crowd. Radio-friendly folk rock like the Lumineers and crossover country like Zac Brown Band and Brantley Gilbert are hardly new ground for Jax. And Blink 182 has been around for like 25 years. Again, no problem with any of those bands playing there, it just sucks that they're the vast majority of what plays there.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

I've got no complaint on the type of acts coming to the region because I remember a time when Jacksonville struggled to get these acts over here. There was a time decades ago that because of the lack of quality venues in this area not only was Jacksonville competing with Orlando and Tampa for big-name acts, they had to fight with arenas in Daytona Beach, Gainesville, and Tallahassee.

Also just because a city like JAX now attract these stale dad-rock acts are more awesome cities with more awesome venues turning these acts down? Let's be thankful that not only the regions concert choices have vastly improved over the last decade but also Daily's Place didn't cannibalize but complimented the other quality live music venues in the First Coast.

When I was in high school (I graduated in 1990) and even into college, Jax got a decent number of big shows. Not sure what happened.
