Weekend Warriors


6.27.10 - Merriweather (Graham Lucas)

In lieu of my usual Friday playlist, this weekend I have assembled a group heavy-hitting selections from 2010 that all took place on weekend nights. Enjoy this weekend, enjoy the tunes, and may all fare well in the ticket lottery!


Tube” 10.30.10 II

This slick version kicked of the second half of Saturday night in AC.



Crosseyed and Painless” 10.16.10 II

6.27.10 (G.Lucas)

Another Saturday second set opener.



Light > Twenty Years Later” 8.7.10 II

A modern classic from The Greek.



Number Line” 6.12.10 II

Perhaps the most impressive jam of last June.



8.17.10 (M. Ladd)

Rock and Roll > Free” 6.26.10 II

In a month when every Saturday night opened with “Rock and Roll,” this version from Merriweather took the cake.



Tweezer > Slave” 7.3.10 II

The definitive jamming sequence from Alpharetta’s holiday stand.

    Good article by Rick Riley about NFL owners. Have a good day gents, off to fix my well.

  6. butter Says:

    Does that mean we don’t get sand tonite, since it was played last night

  7. phoammhead Says:

    ^i would say not necessarily, butter, different cities

  8. DukeOfLizards Says:

    Is it me, or have 2010 Tubes been bending the laws of space-time? The funk is dilating time. I swear.

  9. Mr. Palmer Says:

    sand and jibboo seem to be played everynight for the most part.

    good article WH

    you’ll probably get goodbye head and mr completely, if that’s any consolation

    good morning peeps.

    i have uploaded a good amount of post-rock, mainly from Chicago, and some other must haves from the genre. also other artists form Thrill Jockey. enjoy.

    thanks for the tunes Miner! i love that the Blossom #Line still holds up. I’m pretty sure Trey was locked in on my vibe during that jam, as I was front row, pretty much right in front of him. i think some of my interpretive dancing orchestrated the direction of the groove. 😉

  12. nonoyolker Says:

    Joe – security is def way more lax at the orpheum these days. dude in the row in front of me was puffing tough the whole first set, getting our whole section iree, and security came by and just asked him to stop. Pretty solid move on their part.

    I was at that trey/volt parade show you got tossed from – you didn’t miss much.

    Highly suggest catching them, they sounded fantastic. I was really surprised, great show

    Enjoy the Oakdale show Willowed, should be a great time!

  13. tela'smuff Says:

    Blossom #line is also a great example of proper use of the whale, and, the proper timing for mike to use his filter (or whatever the technical term for that sound is). just a perfectly executed jam. although it would have been cool if it exploded into some Trey shredding for a few mins before dropping into 20YL.

  14. voopa Says:

    Jibboo and Push On to close Set 1…sweet! And he did Joy so I won’t get that tonight, but will probably have to deal with a Let me Lie. Meh, I can do that, just follow it with Hey Ya! and all is forgiven!

    Sorry, a little excited for tonight already…

  15. voopa Says:

    Man Goodbye Head and Mr. C would be great…and Cincinnati!

  16. Mr. Palmer Says:

    You’ll get a Sultans tonight @ Voopa. Enjoy!

  17. poop goblin Says:

  20. butter Says:

    Robear and His girl here gettin our hippie speedball on

  21. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Re commencing 7/31/97. Starting up at YEM.

    going up to 60 degrees today here in the NE. By the end of this weekend i will be able to see my property, snow free, for the first time since Dec. 26th. That’s just silly….

  22. Mr. Palmer Says:

    poop- funny thing is, i knew exactly what you meant the first time.

    Blew up that Tidal Wave lp for the first time this am. My 18 month old was getting loose…

  23. lastwaltzer Says:

    “4/15 ujb = sickness”

    yup yup. Funny thing is I think the first set night one and night three are the hottest of that run. How often can you say that?

  24. tela'smuff Says:

    i recall saying (and getting some stiff resistance) the Alpha Tweez was way stronger than the Greek Tweez, and upon another listen, I know I’m right.

    it’s also one of the nicer segues of the summer into Slave. Mike helps it drop with some nice watery notes.

  25. lastwaltzer Says:


    aren’t naturally transitioning into slave when trey kind of stops because they are jamming past the intro?
