Not to mention that both bands are Bay Area local acts.

I had more fun seeing shows in Wyoming than when I grew up in the Bay Area. It does help that Jackson Hole draws some major mid level talent and I got to watch it in small intimate bars where I knew a lot of the other concert goers.

It is nice the bands share a bay area home town. Maybe the bands can carpool to the show in the retirement home van.

I am hoping to get up to see some of the races. I won't be attending the concert though I will just wait for the bands to play at my local county fair one of these days.

Yeah, but the hipper, younger crowd is the growth demographic. Bad move on the music.

Re: Another America’s Cup entry destroyed

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot???

A little upset that the AC Event Authority is making a little money besides selling tickets on race day? No doubt there is a thriving performing arts scene out there in Cow Pie, Wyoming. Here is the list of acts performing at the AC Pavilion this summer:

Sting
Imagine Dragons
Steve Miller Band and The Doobie Brothers
Counting Crows and The Wallflowers
San Francisco Symphony
Weezer
311
Sublime
Cheech & Chong with WAR
Train
The Jonas Brothers
Steely Dan
Heart
Jason Mraz
Sammy Hagar
Fall Out Boy with Panic! At The Disco
The Lumineers with Dr. Dog and Nathaniel Rateliff

Would you rather they book these acts in the AT&T ballpark? HP Pavilion? Shoreline? Paul Mason? Stern Grove? (Just to mention a few of the local venues.) With the per-race ticket prices going from $50 to $600+, I think the target demographic is a little on the upscale than your average cow-chip thrower. Have fun sailing in your cattle pond this year!

Wow - what's not to like about that lineup? I'd say that covers the gamut pretty nicely...especially if Sammy H sits in with the Jonas Brothers.

BobM, you were holding out my friend.

"Hipper, younger crowd...?" Wait a sec, I thought it was NASCAR Nation this AC series was trying to attract... (grin)

On a sun-kissed afternoon in the Bay Area last week, Larry Olson, a 39-year-old from San Francisco, backed his car into a parking space next to Marina Green, flipped up the hatch to create a viewing platform and watched with his young children as Artemis Racing’s America’s Cup catamaran sped by in the stiff breeze on San Francisco Bay.


“My daughter’s preschool is near here, so we always come and sit and watch them practice,” Olson said. “These are amazing boats, and we’re kind of hoping they’ll flip one. It happened once before. It’s kind of like watching a Nascar race.”

I once shot an IndyCar race where the National Anthem was performed by the country trio SHEDAISY...

I swear, they had to mop up the drool from pit lane before they could start the race...
