Counting Crows and Maroon 5 at Marcus Amphitheater

"Mr. Jones and Me", famously performed by Counting Crows will be wafting westward from the Marcus Amphitheater on August 23rd. We can dispense with the usual comments about dreadlocks on white guys. Counting Crows have a fan base that you cannot ignore. Hooking up with Maroon 5, another solid band with a younger base is a great idea. Will the fans cross over? Who cares. It's the Marcus Amphitheater, you sit in your seats for the band you like, and you walk up past the lawn seats for the other band you don't like as much. The Marcus Amphitheater is a great venue for getting comfortable up at the top of the hill. Order up a berry flavored beer, and watch the show from a voyeuristic angle. That's what I did for Trent Reznor. After I was done watching Bauhaus, I left my cozy seat in section 2, row x, and walked my way up to the top. Much better.
