    bummer, El Dude.

    tell her to hang in there.

  2. lastwaltzer Says:

    in fact i could go for a bowie opener.

  3. El Duderino Says:

    @ Silly

    I want to see the renaissance of Jon Fishman

  4. SillyWilly Says:

    Heard that one, LW. definitely epic.

    Hey El Dude,
    I drove up north and went right past Cuyahoga Falls. 7 hours. BTB Fest?

  6. SillyWilly Says:

    El Dude

    Yeah, I definitely think that’s a better way to put it.

    Just some crisp playing from Fishman would signal wondrous and beautiful things on our horizon.

  7. SillyWilly Says:

    @Guyute and El Dude

    Yall have to!

    You can make it back to get plenty of rest for work on Monday.

    unless of course you have other obligations.

    @ Guyute

    If there were a midwest event that I’d like to hit it would be BTB fest. But were moving on Saturday the 12th to Charlotte and there is so much that needs to be taken care of that there would be no way for anything but Raleigh and Charlotte this summer. Sorry man I’d really love to go, but it’s just not doable. If there is a Chicago fall stop we’re talkin’ about that.

  9. El Duderino Says:

    But Leo W’s Back Yard BBQ and Bus is looking like the southern event so…

  10. El Duderino Says:

    @ Silly

    Not sure if you want myself and AW at the same event. At least not yet.

  11. Guyute711 Says:

    More of a joke anyway. I spent a fortune this weekend going up to NY. As soon as I saw that sign though I thought, “Not too bad of a drive.”

  12. El Duderino Says:

    You guys that are going are gonna love Leo’s Yarden. Very pretty very nice

    @silly, what is your avatar? whenever i look at it i think bugs bunny, then i look closer and i see a pony….

  16. DaWedge Says:

    ………but if the Blackhawks win, how does Trey play well in Chicago? Such a dilemma. PYITE opener in Chicago if Blackhawks win. Punch being the operative word. Anyone going to Cuyahoga?

    Today is Phish removal day from iTunes. 2 weeks until Portsmouth.

    I put up my thoughts on Exile this week which might interest people because I haven’t heard this theory before…

  18. El Duderino Says:

    Mornin’ zzyzx

  19. zzyzx Says:

    I had a weird drive into work. Yes, I work 6-2 to avoid traffic, but there was NO ONE on the road. Then KIRO played Friday’s sports update by mistake (Huh, didn’t the Lakers clinch the series already?) making me wonder if it was still Memorial Day or something.

    I’m glad it’s not Friday again… that day sux0red…

    Morning BB! Been a while. Can’t wait for next Saturday!

  21. llamalee Says:

    what is the theme going to be for 2010? funk in your face, exile style rock and roll, psycadelia, maybe sailor boat man mania or liquid time. maybe the triumphant return of fishman.

  22. Chalkdusting Says:

    Morning boys and girls. Can’t believe it’s June already. Seems like I’ve been waiting for this month to come forever. Summer plans are still being finalized for me, as the ex- special man friend (sounds creepy when referring to the other gender) slash tour buddy may not be joining me for as many shows as I thought, and the 6ish hour drive to OH sounds daunting- I get really sleepy in the car. Still have to finalize things. Hoping everything works out, for me and for all of you.

    Let’s make it a good week!

  23. lastwaltzer Says:

    sailboat man can stay down in the oily gulf.

  24. Stupendous Says:

    Id rather motor boat ( . )( . )
    Brrrrrr Brrrrrrr Brrrrrrrr

  25. llamalee Says:

    that was a joke (hopefully) but i’d really like to hear liquid time enter the rotation pretty consistently in 2010 and see fishman get his soul back on the drums
