So, this weekend Buckethead was in Tennessee for some shows… I happened to go to the Nashville, TN showing on 6/3.
Honestly, if I had planned this out and life was pretty good and kind to me, I’d have gone to every showing while he was here (huge thanks to my wife for letting me go, though saying it isn’t enough). That’s alright though because there is a small glimmer of hope of perhaps one day seeing him and all his friends together. If that day ever came, I’d be signing up. Praxis. That would be some serious shit too.
In any case, it was a fantastic show, and I will say that each show was unique in its way. I will say I am partial to Detroit’s show because I saw it with close friends. However, this one was unique in its way for those I met, (even though some folks, I didn’t get the chance to catch their names, or exchange info), and also for him to slap that bass this time…and his nunchucks. I always love meeting the fans too. I met some cool folks in Nashville. All ranging from some that have been following Buckethead for a long, long, long time now. To it being their first show, to even folks who were just coming into Bucketheadland [that is to say, discovering his music].
The venue was quaint too. I liked it. Exit/In was a pretty great place for this show. Everyone had a good time and rocked out together to Buckethead. What more could you ask for? How about hitting that killswitch and getting some toys? Yeah. Some life goals were achieved. Although, I find myself with an insatiable appetite for seeing the man with a bucket on his head playing to a crowd of great people more now. Yes, my friends, I have an addiction and the only cure is a prescription for more Buckethead. Let’s say it’s for therapy? Yes, lets.
I have plans…plans for the souvenirs I’ve collected thus far, and well, I don’t want to spoil it too much. Let’s just say that it’s going to be awesome, and it’ll make you moist.
I hope to meet more fans of BH in the future and that we all get to enjoy more Buckethead goodness.
Until next time!
