    AW, by any chance does your girl work for CPS?

    I am starting to feel the call of MPP, not sure if I can or should wait until the Greek. Wife may have other thoughts about it, and also might want to hold my travel days for some in fall. Phishthoughts, indeed.

    I have been curious to know hwo folks have beenintroducing themselves at the meet-ups and the practice of addressing folks as such or otherwise out n about.

    My challenge is tt most of my true friends know me by an assumed named as part of my alter-ego superhero identity that is related too but not my birthname.

    In fact most folks, includin direct family, call me it as that is the quickest channel to direct response you may get from me, and the a guaranteed that I am the only one who will respond.

    Guess I’ll play tha by ear when I start meeting folks from here.

    I did not meet up with any BB’ers at Toyota, sadly, but didnt really know how to, and was a little bit spaced out. I guess I am shy.

  9. angryjoggerz Says:

    I do? Hmmmm. I thought you had mentioned that she worked there before.

    as far as my two cents go on Blossom and Hershey, i first must add that my perspective on these shows is totally skewed because i was front row for Blossom. So everything was really peaked for me that night. Thus, it had a somewhat negative effect for Hershey.

    Blossum for me was really just an amazing show. Other than the Sample>TTE. Just had to get that out of the way. The show just had some key elements that make a show great for me. Loved the opener, got my first Curtis Lowe, and I really enjoyed the jam in Ocelot, Stash, and thought the Mike’s was huge (Trey was in my face) and the Paug was finally pushed a little bit.
    As for the second set, I just loved the flow and feel of it. While I have personally grown tired of Rock n Roll, this version really went somewhere new for a change and the Hood was one of the better versions I’ve witnessed in a long time. Trey just destroyed the ending. Filthy. But the BDTNL>20 years is the reason I love this band so much. The whole flow of this segment was so dark and powerful and just perfect improvisation and to witness it from my vantage point, it was just beyond epic for me. If they are creating jams like the one in #line, 2 shows in the tour, I can’t begin to imagine what’s going to go down as the summer moves on. 20 yrs later is a perfect landing point for dark jams like this one. As far as Instant Karma goes, wow, total left field and I loved it. You could feel the love from the crowd at my back. It was one of the special nights at that point. Loved getting the classic Oh Ke Pa>Suzy, even though I’ve had my fill of Suzy’s at this point, again, front row stylie, it was all good. Lastly, has this Zero been discussed? Because at the time (haven’t listened back to the show yet) I was freakin out about the build up Trey kept pushing. It just seemed like a HUGE Zero.
    To sum up Blossom, it was my favorite show since the comeback that I’ve attended. It just had so many positives I look for in a show, but it will forever have an asterik due to my rail status.

    As for Hershey, totally different experience than most everybody I’ve spoken with. While I did enjoy this show, it to me just didn’t click, and my guess is my viewing change, and also I just was feeling pretty exhausted by 2nd set.

    I thought the Jim, Funky Bitch, and Split were all standouts, with the Jim getting first set highlight for me. The Split was just evil and demented, which I like, but I’m not sure in the long run where that jam will stand. The
    2nd set was just one big song after big song, but this is where I differ, apparently, with people. I thought the flow was nonexsistent in this set. They basically just abruptly ended jams and smashed into the next song. that’s a pretty critical point, but it was something kind of jarring to me. The Drowned jam was cool, and Tweezer was fun, but for me, neither of those two jams went anywhere real interesting. The Twist on the other hand was very cool and Mike was doing some great things. It was one of the better Twists I’ve seen, maybe not in length of improvisation, but in ideas for sure. The Piper was the real deal though. It was indeed a musical stew and I would call it the jam of the night. As for Free, my thoughts are exactly like Miners. It’s a good song, but I miss the jammier versions.
    Lastly, the Y.E.M. had such an incredible breakdown with Mike leading the charge that I was scraping my jaw of the floor. Mike ruled the night.

    I could tell people were really feeling Hershey though and that was great. The crowd was very lively so it made it a really fun show even if I wasn’t totally in the right mindset.

    – one thing i’ve noticed – no Gamehendge songs other than Possum played yet? Weird.

    sorry for the long post. just wanted to get it all out now.

    you said your on one cup a day I thought, thats a habit not an addiction 😉


    WORD I haven’t seen him on here in quite some time glad to know he is getting down.

  15. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    two good ones:

    1) Darwin’s Nightmare
    2) No Impact Man

    not sure if you found your choices yet, but those are decent ones.

    @ AW

    The SPAC bug is a dangerous one. I caught it yesterday while listening to Chicago and Bloosom. Then before I knew it I somehow landed dead center pavs on Livenation and then a room at the Hilton in SS on Priceline in the span of 10 minutes.

    Then last night once the “fever” broke I needed to explain to the lady that on the way home from her cousin’s wedding in the Poconos we’re taking a little detour. While she was cool, especially after learning where our seats were, we did have to talk a little about “communication”.

    See you in Saratoga.

    With that being said is there an organized BB meet-up for Sunday?

    spinnin first set hershey now, after repeated listening to hersh set II and the jam song highlights from 6/11 and 6/12.

    this is an uptempo, well-played, fun set.

    As far as scene, crowd, venue, Hershey was one of the best shows i’ve attended. It truly was a wide-open dance party. it rejuvenated my soul.

  18. fat bastard Says:

    SOAM at blossom i smoked more then 10 indians…everyones holdin

  19. SillyWilly Says:

    thats true.

    I don’t mean to make light of real addictions.

    my bad.

  20. albert walker Says:

    so far through Twist Tela I agree

    I’m not really feeling set II of Hershey

    not sloppy but the jams aren’t very directed and they just kind of stop and fall into the next song

    Twist picks it up a little but not a huge version

    can’t wait to see how it finishes up after work cuz I’m only through twist

    like I said not a bad show and fun and uptempo but there hasn’t been a jam that really has caught my ear yet

    Week, Hood, and #line all reached peak 3.0 jam levels

    but as a whole I found Blossom to be a little up and down

    i wasn’t feelin the Mike’s or the Stash really

    in general both nights have less flubs and tighter playing then 09 to my ears

  21. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:


    typeiiijpd of the gmail variety

  22. Stupendous Says:

    I thought the stash from blossom was more of a highlight than that Paug…

  23. Luther Justice Says:

    Its a buffet of green goodness out there my friend.

  24. BeantownBoy Says:

    Does anyone know which shows, if any, Pollock is doing the posters for this tour?

  25. albert walker Says:


    I didn’t really like the Stash at all

    maybe expectations cuz it was a monster even in 09 but Trey really doesn’t take it anywhere IMO

    I feel the little syncopated synth hits with the percussive guitar at the end of the jam is the first creative week in a long time

    I think they got it to a real creative and original place that could foreshadow a new direction for the 3.0 slowed down weeks

    I really, really dug it
