    I had an absolute blast at the moe show I attended. They’re incredibly tight, and very talented. Worth seeing if they’re ever in your area

  2. BrandonKayda Says:

    Is this still improv or have they segued into a song?

  3. c0wfunk Says:

    saw moe for new years in asheville a few years back

    it was such a strange experience, like being in a foreign country where all of the customs are the same but hte language is different. Mostly they’re not really my bag .. though I think their songwriting is pretty strong. Overall their jamming tends to bore me though adn I think their guitar players aren’t the most creative

  4. ChefBradford Says:

    Yeah, their jams tend to bend the same way. Good band though, good band. And Rob on bass is stellar

  5. ChefBradford Says:

    Ie: not somebody I’d necessarily follow around, but I’d try to catch them when they’re in the neighborhood

  6. Jtran Says:

    Really like Miner’s Tweezer DJ mix. I got to 14 minutes, stopped it, and am now trying to place what I’ve heard so far. i know the tracks are listed, but I’m talking what times in said Tweezers etc

  7. ChefBradford Says:

    Jtran, those mixes are money. I may dig through and see if I can place that 14 mark for you

  8. Jtran Says:

    I’m pretty sure we go into Denver 97 around there, but I’m trying to find the jam before it, with some nice piano work from Page, and a really great laid back groove. Couldn’t find it in 12/6/97, just started streaming Austin 98.

  9. ChefBradford Says:


    that has the setlist for the Tweezer DJ mix

  10. ChefBradford Says:

    Jtran, if you are digging that mix, do yourself a favor and seek out “A Trip Through The Late 90s”. Blissfully excellent mix with a possibly most perfect placement ever, the 7/21ish?/99 My Left Toe jam dead center, hoo boy

  11. Jtran Says:

    Found it! Finishing out this Tweezer now, really enjoy it.

  12. Jtran Says:

    Chef, got the setlist, I was just trying to place where in the 7/25 Tweezer (7-9 minutesish) the part I really liked was. Will check that out soon.

  13. Jtran Says:

    “This was definitely one of the weakest Tweezers of the last few years,
    in my opinion. It went nowhere, similar to the 7/19/98 version,
    actually. Just coasted along without a care in a manner that seemed
    uninspired and aimless (at least to me). It’s still musically more
    interesting than many versions of Tweezer from the early years,
    though, IMO, so I think a 5.0 rating is reasonable (even though the
    ratings suck and you should put no faith or credence in them :-).

    two cents

    Get out of here Charlie!

  14. ChefBradford Says:

    Yeah man, I gave up on a lot of those reviews/reviewers when I realized I had totally different tastes

  15. Jtran Says:

    They’re fun to read though, and really keep me focused when I’m listening to something closely.

  16. ChefBradford Says:

    and moe just invited that Kyle dude from SCI onstage…um…er…

  17. ChefBradford Says:

    Jtran, I gotta go man, enjoy your sweet listening picks. I’m sure I’ll catch you again soon

  18. Jtran Says:

    Definitely. Have a good night.

  19. BrandonKayda Says:

    Anybody still around?

  20. Jtran Says:

    I am. Thinking of calling it a night though.

  21. Highway Bill Says:

    …I stand on a featureless sheet of blue stone and then for an instant I’m not so alone….

  22. BrandonKayda Says:

    Good morning BB.

    Happy Memorial Day!!!

  23. Leo Weaver Says:

    Happy Memorial Day folks! A huge thanks goes out to those members, both past and present, of the military who do their duty for the rest of us Americans. Hope y’all all have a great day. Just threw 2 boston butts on the grill…add heat for 7-8 hours, chop it all up, add sauce and bun…voila – tasty BBQ!

    Mrs. Weaver and I enjoyed the company of El Dude and his Special Lady Friend last night (and saturday night)…had a little practice run for the Charlotte pre-show festivities in the garden. Fried up some fish, hushpuppies and fries and washed it all down with some heady brews, ‘bane, and sweet guitar picking from Garcia, Rice, Grisman, and Kottke. Good times.

    @hal…glad to hear things have warmed up enough for your garden! It’s a real good feeling to nurture those plants and reap the goodness later in the year. Hope you have a good year…mine’s started off pretty well although a couple of my tomatoes are having some issues. Think it’s cutworms, but could be blight (fuck…hope I’m wrong).

  24. Leo Weaver Says:

    @BK…glad to see you back around. Hope to say hello and shake your hand at MPP.

  25. SillyWilly Says:

    Howdy, all!

    Hope you enjoy your Memorial Day.

    Just chilling with my girl for the day…getting psyched for tour.
