Y&T @ Rogue Theatre

I Only Party With The Best

@YandTRocks @AaronLeighynt @DaveMeniketti

Y&T were huge in the San Francisco Bay Area when I was growing up. The radio stations (KOME, KSJO, KRQR) played songs off of Earthshaker, Black Tiger, and Mean Streak as much as they played Led Zeppelin, the Eagles, or AC/DC. I’m always a little surprised when I talk to people outside of the Bay Area about Y&T who haven’t heard of Y&T or only know Contagious and/or Summertime Girls (two songs I don’t particularly care for and never have heard–except live). I checked out after Mean Streak when they went soft.

Anyway, it’s odd to see them playing relatively small venues, outside the Bay Area, and the fan base knowing the songs I don’t know and not really getting that into the songs I love. That said, the only disappointing thing from my March 17, 2018 evening in Grants Pass was the omission of Midnight in Tokyo from the setlist. I’ve enjoyed over a thousand, real “midnights in Tokyo” and could have used another.
