Rise against the years

Posted By on Sat, May 23, 2009 at 5:29 PM

Gavin Rossdale put on quite a show last night, ripping through a surprisingly strong set of newer material while indulging the audience with a ton of Bush favorites.  Throngs of people showed up despite the time slot competing with Willie and the B-52s.  The set started off with a song from Rossdale's new record and then ripped into a fist-pumping version of "Machinehead," which sent the crowd into a frenzy.  The rest of the set was a mix between the softer new material, including a cover of "Landslide" (see video on the jump), and the harder-edged Bush stuff.  Rossdale told the crowd at almost every opportunity how great it was to be in Little Rock and how great all the locals had been.  He spent a lot of time walking through the crowd down in front of the stage and at one point literally mounted the stack of monitors at the side of the stage, scraping guitar strings along the backside of the speaker, hips thrusting.  Great rock show.

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
