They didn't play Nitefall on the River, they just had a show at Simon Estes. So excited to see them in Des Moines again!
Sounds like an awesome show! I can't wait for the new Filter CD to come out in June!!!!
Richjod69 commented on Lazerfest 2013 review blog
You didn't comment on how Lazerfest got so screwed up this year with the stages being so far apart. It was especially bad for those of us that purchased the expensive VIP tickets as we were unable to see or if the wind blew to hard, even hear the far away second stage. So VIP ticket holders DID NOT get to see half of the bands, DID NOT have easy access to their private bathrooms (had to go 25 yards in the opposite direction away from the VIP area), DID NOT have a VIP entrance to easily get into the venue, and lets not forget the steak dinner which was almost exactly like the Hyvee $7.00 Thursday night steak dinner that is offered through the stores kitchen. Thanks Lazer for working so hard to destroy what was last year a great event.
Carol_B commented on 3. David Cook, 'This Loud Morning'
_Everything_Zen.. here is that memo: When an artist's debut CD sells over 1 million copies because a bunch of people who fall in love with him on a TV show buy it up like crazy...then follows that up by selling less than 1/10th that many the second time around when it becomes about the quality of the product instead of reality TV momentum, it will be considered by the general public as a flop. Overly loyal fans will continue to think he is the bestest thing ever. End of Memo.
JimmyMackey commented on 'American Idol' Top 9: The recap
I really liked the Beatles song idea for this show and I’m glad that they had a lot of the more known songs rather than the more obscure ones. As usual, I watched Idol this morning while getting ready to go work at DISH, which is a convenient time for me. I use my DISH Hopper DVR because it skips the commercials automatically when I watch Idol recorded on FOX and that way I have time to see the results before I hear about it at work.
TimSanchez commented on 'American Idol' Top 9 results: The live blog
It was shocking to see Amber in the bottom three, but America got it right by sending Paul Jolley home. I work at DISH with a lot of Idol fans who were wondering if Lazaro would be going home, but his fans steeped up to save him. I missed part of last night’s episode, but caught up with it this morning since it was recorded on my DISH Hopper. I never worry about missing American Idol because my DVR automatically records FOX shows during primetime, and then I can watch it at my own pace.

AaronSinwell commented on Alan Jackson, Casting Crowns, more announced for Iowa State Fair Grandstand
@acoustimac. This is less than half of the shows that will be at the grandstand. And they always have a kids show, a country show, and a christian show. As far as the acts they have booked for those categories, I think they did a pretty good job. I won't be going to any of these shows because I'm not a christian, a kid, or a hardcore country music fan. We'll see what else they announce, but expect them to appeal to the masses; as they are in the business of making money. Last year, I was more impressed by some of the bands on the free stages. I guess my point is: Don't judge until they have released the entire lineup. Who knows? They might surprise you.
Second year in a row of not visiting the grand stand. It doesn't take much to visit Pollstar and see all of the great bands on tour for summer. Why not a stop at our great fair?
Blah. These shows get worse every year. Who is coming up with this crap?
I retract my previous statement. I spoke with the partners and they have apologized and are taking care of this right away.
