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!

    I sometimes let my daughter get songs from iTunes for a variety of reasons.

    She’s had ‘Clint Eastwood’, ‘Hey Ya’, and ‘Empire State of Mind’ on there since they first came out.

  2. Robear Says:

    mr. p, we caught that ‘bustle in your hedgerow’

    do it Jeffiem. beers on me

  3. lastwaltzer Says:


    if rumors are true pitchfork is looking really good this year. Lot of acts i’d like to see: odd future, tv on the radio, gang of four, os mutantes

  4. angryjoggerz Says:

    yeah, LW. I love Pitchfork, both for the bands I already love and the one’s I never knew I did. Got my mind blown last year by Lightening Bolt.

  5. angryjoggerz Says:

    PS, yes, I know that people love to hate on Pitchfork because it is for hipsters and shit. Good news, people do not have to go to the festival, so everyone wins!

  6. Gavinsdad Says:

    See some of you Chicago boys at Pitchfork this Summer. There for work this year.

  7. butter Says:

    wait Robear -is this the bluegrass band you’ve always pimped


  8. angryjoggerz Says:

    Oh yeah, GD? Nice! What are you doing there? Would love to show you some Chicago hospitality if you have time.

  9. garretc Says:

    Oh man, just finished a great book that took me a long time to finish… Great feeling.

    Highly recommend “The Sunlight Dialogues” by John Gardner. Really interesting style, exciting plot, lots of out there philosophizing… Definitely made me stop and think about life many a time.

    Not a feel good beach read though… Unless reading scathing societal critiques bordering on nihilism is what you like at the beach…

  10. Gavinsdad Says:

    I should be chilling if I play my cards right AJ. Will follow up closer to but I’ll def be there for sure.

  11. Robear Says:

    butter, *ting yessir

    if Trey consults with my daughter, they’ll be playing ‘Paper Planes’ by M.I.A. before tour is up.

  12. garretc Says:

    Anybody know what the deal is with what looks to be a sunburst finished ‘doc in this pic of Trey’s guitars? The one in the middle:!/photo.php?fbid=475968037167&set=a.468180897167.228253.6395707167&theater

    while not crazy about the sight, they have had some good line ups in the past. Got to see Yoko Ono there a few years ago, sweet show.

  14. butterflyeffect Says:

    I like those pretty much anywhere, @g, even in bed.

    NN BB

    Love ya

  15. garretc Says:


    Well then maybe this is the book for you!

  16. butter Says:

    Ohhh cool, right on

  17. BrandonKayda Says:

    Speaking of books, started Lord of the Flies and will start Hamlet tonight. Both for school but I’ve been wanting to read them anyways

  18. garretc Says:


    I found myself a little underwhelmed by Lord Of The Flies when I read it for class. I think part of it may have been having the plot ruined by friends who were a year older than me, but I don’t know if I really found a whole lot of significance in the message…

    Or maybe I don’t mean significance, but it just wasn’t a concept that made me think, felt like something a little too apparent for that? It’s been a while, so I’m fuzzy on my exact feelings, and I don’t know what I’d think of it now…

  19. JeffieM Says:

    Robear, I’ll absolutely keep it in mind. It will probably depend on whether or not we feel like doing anything after the travel day. It definitely sounds like my dad is hoping to go pretty hard for the trip, so we’ll see.

    Palmer, I think wine country should be in the cards. I’m not a wine drinker, but the scenery and experience is tough to pass up.

  20. garretc Says:


    The only problem with wine country is you can’t drive through that AND up the coast simultaneously…

    But yeah, you guys are in for a gorgeous drive, just be aware that there’s not gonna be much between the cities besides nature, so if you want activities plan for ’em in the cities.

  21. BrandonKayda Says:


    I think it’s interesting to think about the concept though. I mean you have to remember, Golding looked at the world post WWII and was extremely disillusioned with everything – hence the book is kind of nihilistic and dark in nature. I mean, if we were stranded on an island with no technology and it was essentially anarchy, I’d be curious as to what would happen. But allegories aren’t necessarily supposed to be realistic.

  22. ae Says:

    i went to bk bowl for bustle last thurs. very cool venue and great music. hoping to go back saturday night for soulive. website says only limited tix available at the door or something, so we’ll see if we make it in…

  23. JeffieM Says:

    Garret, I was underwhelmed by LOTF too. The writing was so stiff and the characters too archetypical for me to really get into the ideas in it.

    I finished Even Cowgirls Get the Blues by Tom Robbins today. I know Robbins was talked about here last week. Fun read, great ending. Not really a twist, but unexpected. Great read.

    That Gardner book sounds pretty good. I might need to grab it.

  24. garretc Says:


    Well see, that’s the thing for me, I don’t know if I find the concept all that interesting, to an extent.

    I almost feel like it’s obvious what would happen if a bunch of boys were stranded on an island… Now, the implications for society that come from that concept I can see as being discussion worthy, but I guess I see the book as saying, “hey, check out what human nature is actually like” as opposed to “hey, this is what it means for us that human nature is like this”…

    I don’t know how much you know about what happens in the book, so I’m trying to dance around things a bit, but hopefully you see what I’m getting at?

  25. BrandonKayda Says:

    I still need to read Still Life With Woodpecker, after that I’ll read Even Cowgirls.

    And yeah I’m not far into LOTF yet, but I know the basic plot of the story. I’ll let you know what I think when I finish it.
