Reader Review: TAB @ AE Stage, Pittsburgh, PA: Casey Boire

2.25.11 - Pittsburgh (M.Stein)

Nestled in the shadow of Pittsburgh’s Three-Rivers Stadium, Trey and his Classic TAB line-up rolled into Stage AE on Friday night and laid down an impressive show that was arguably the best of the tour so far. Upon walking in around the scheduled show time, I was surprised to see the place packed from wall to wall considering that it was one of the few shows to not sell out beforehand. Trey came onstage around 8:30 pm and opened his acoustic set with Backwards Down the Number Line. Everyone was in good spirits and as Trey sang the final part of the song, the crowd joined in by providing the backing lyrics of “All my friends, Backwards Down The Number Line.” The sing-along continued throughout the first set and included well-played versions of Gumbo, Farmhouse, Stealing Time From the Faulty Plan, and The Horse > Silent in the Morning…Read On Here!

  10. dyda Says:

    i know it was an honest mistake, but three rivers stadium has been gone for a decade

    seek out some amusing banter from trey about the evils of being a ‘degenerate rock star’ & the canadian border patrol

  11. HarryHood Says:

    @ Dyda

    I do not stand by the accuracy of my write-up. Please keep in mind that I’m a wook noob and nothing that I say can be trusted.

  12. angryjoggerz Says:

    Hey El Dude, that show has always intrigued me. sorry to be a noob, but do you know where I can get that as a simple mp3? I dont do torrents/FLACs, just have never gotten to figuring it out, but would love to hear that one, as it is my neighborhood show! Word, thanks. Still envious of your warm spring!

  13. EL Duderino Says:

    spinnin’ the 2/12/06 Beacon Phil show with Trey for the first time in like 3 years… Forgot how good this board is…

    Up On Cripple Creek = $$$$$$

    mornin’ all

    had a hankering to revisit the Classic TAB Oakdale show from 10-17-2008 last night. been bumping it this morning.

    it’s as good as I recalled, mainly just to know that this was the beginning of things to come. highlight is definitely the second frame opening Light and the Jibboo that followed it but don’t sleep on the first set Sand. Miner had a nice write-up of this show well prior to most of us congregating here. strange to see only 26 comments on a post – and most of those are about people getting shut out of hampton tickets. not too many still familiar handles on there!

    I pulled this source (a little light on the bass for me and a lot of talkers, but overall pretty crisp), which I am currently seeding, and I think voopa is working on seeding a hybrid source that patches the two known sources together.

  15. HarryHood Says:

    I can honestly say now that doing a show review is not easy. It’s difficult to recall enough details about each song to make it an interesting read, and I do not have an arsenal of terms such as “crunchy brontasaurus basslines” at my disposal. It’s also funny that once I read the actual post, I found myself to be very long winded. At the time I sent the review, I didn’t think that I had included nearly enough details……. All I can say is that I have a new appreciation for what Miner does here for us each day.

  16. angryjoggerz Says:

    testing, i have a post in moderation, not sure why

  17. nonoyolker Says:

    Nice write-up HH! This:
    “Once Trey wrapped up his shirtless bike ride, the show really got started when he strapped on the electric and we all found ourselves in the Show of Life”
    …is priceless. Well done

  18. lastwaltzer Says:

    “I do not have an arsenal of terms such as “crunchy brontasaurus basslines” at my disposal.”HH

    whoa whoa stop the presses. Cosmic brontosaurus was one of my all time favorite miner-ism’s, you mean to tell me it had a predecessor?

  19. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    you did a good job there, hood. I’m sure it takes a while for one to develop a 10¢ vocabulary like Miner’s. munificent imagery in writing doesn’t happen overnight. thanks for the perspective!

  20. Spasm Waiter Says:

    Nice work Hood. As the ‘Burgh was my old ‘hood, I am glad that they got a good show. Seems Trey has always liked Yins’burgh and played pretty well there. Looking forward to listening to some more of this tour. Sounds like the POTTD’s are really smoking from yours and others write-ups.

  21. fat bastard Says:

    morning boys. im not going to attempt a review but TAB chicago was real good. second set was money I saw the signal for small axe and loved the DCDFG and ether sunday. trey is obviously in love w the french girl and so am i. sat (stood) dead center in the aisle in balcony. LOUD AS FUCK

  22. HarryHood Says:

    @ LW

    I think the crunchy brontosaurus was from the Jurassic era which came after the cosmic brontosaurus of the Triassic period.

  23. HarryHood Says:

    @ Spasm

    Walking into the show, BTB gave me the rundown on the Pittsburgh “Yins”. I’d hadn’t really picked up on it until he mentioned it, but that’s some funny shit once you start paying attention

  24. lastwaltzer Says:

    I work with yinzers, thats some scary shit right there. I get into arguments on the regular about weather or not a broom “sweeps’ or “brooms”, or is it a “vacuum cleaner” or a “sweeper”. Strange people.
