Tonight The Wife, The Kid and Your Humble Narrator went to Chase Field to watch our beloved Diamondbacks take on San Diego. Alas, despite the pleasure of seeing Justin Upton...

...hit a two-run inside-the-park homer—on his birthday, no less—we still had to witness the wretched Padres rout the hometown lads, 9-3.

The evening was salvaged, however, by Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, who played a lively post-game concert on the field. Clyne’s splendid, driving, high-energy set, which included his King of the Hill theme and his Diamondbacks victory song, made the earlier disaster a little more beautiful.

RIP to moon man Neil Armstrong, passed on at 82…


  1. Roger is one of the best performers I've ever seen. The intensity is amazing, and he does it every time.

  2. Yeah. The ballpark acoustics were pretty terrible for a rock show, really, but the beauty and drive of the music come across anyway. At a cvertain point Clyne pointed to several people in the crowd & said "I know everybody here," & later, "Seriously, is there anybody here I haven't met?" It was The Kid's first rock concert, & I'm glad it was him.
