During NFTF’s absence, we have been attending concerts at the Hollywood Bowl where things can get pretty heated up as when Doctor John and the Night Trippers did a show of Louie Armstrong’s best songs or when Emmylou Harris treated her audience to several new songs from her vast catalog of songs…she still is the Sweetheart of The Rodeo.
What NFTF did find puzzling there was how Zooey Deschanel could headline the Bowl over Emmylou Harris, but she did just that with her act “She and Him” which kinda left NFTF flat. Deschanel does have a good voice make no mistake, but for NFTF she gets it’s Best Performance By A Statue award which has not been given out since Marianne Faithful first appeared on the ED Sullivan Show back in the 60’s.
NFTF first went to the Bowl to see The Beatles in 1964 which was the first rock concert ever to be attended by NFTF. NFTF has seen Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Jesus Christ Superstar and the Royal Ballet growing up there and has a certain expectation as a result. Hope next season is better for headliners.
