3.5.2011 TAB @ The Fox, Oakland, CA: Butter

2.25.11 (M.Stein)

…The night seemed to begin at “Heavy Things”;  as simultaneously – the rest of TAB took the stage –  and people began to care about what was going on, onstage. Liquid Time is a showcase tune in this setting and the  horns help color the musical pallete. Trey currently has the young Natalie “Chainsaw” Cressman on trombone, TAB staple; Jennifer Hartswick on trumpet, and Russell Remmington on saxophone and flute. While this is not “The Tower of Power” horns section, they help develop the sound of this band, playing mostly charted out lines…Read On Here!


3.1.2011 TAB @ The Ogden, Denver, CO: Mike San Clements

2.25.11 (M.Stein)

…Trey came out around 8:30, did his classic nod and wave, picked up his guitar and quickly launched into Farmhouse. I’d read a lot of complaints about people being loud during the acoustic sets, but the crowd at the Ogden hushed immediately and stayed quiet and sang through all the right parts. It was actually quite impressive, particularly during Theme and Backwards Down the Number Line where they instinctively filled in for the missing band members.  Trey enjoyed it too, and it felt like a true collaboration between performer and audience…Read On Here!

  3. kenny powers Says:

    i’ll be rooting for my Friars to play spoiler against Marquette tonight….although that could prevent the Big East getting, what, 11 teams into the big dance? tough call.

  4. joe Says:

    my favorite 80’s song is David Bowie

  5. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    “What is the lot, or lack there of, at Blossom like?”

    best lot i’ve ever been to. it’s a utopia.

  6. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    seriously, it’s beautiful

  7. angryjoggerz Says:

    DF, have you checked out Tame Impala at all? I am pimping this band big time, great stuff. Worth a check out.

  8. joe Says:

    Ok. one more try. Any interest in doing the march madness pool with donation to mr. miner as the entry fee again?

  9. Mr. Palmer Says:

    i’m in joe

  10. joe Says:

    I forget who put it together last time…all I remember is coming in middle of the pack as I always do.

  11. Litteringandd Says:

    Good to hear dancingfool, what about the law? pretty hands off?

  12. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    @AJ, yeah i listened to it when it first came out, liked it a lot, need to give it another spin

  13. Chuck sweD Says:

    ander’s reppin a waterwheel hoodie

    kick down before you rock out…

  14. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    @littering, i don’t remember even seeing any law. blossom is basically in the middle of nowhere

  15. Selector J Says:

    “not a fan of the echo’y snare hit? Reggae must be unlistenable for you!”

    As long as it’s a real snare, let that sucker echo all day…

    synth drums are the worst. Takes a lot to overcome that kind of blemish.

  16. Guyute711 Says:

    Wow, what a finish!!! Or not overtime.

  17. angryjoggerz Says:

    synth drums are the worst. Takes a lot to overcome that kind of blemish.

    Makes mental note to not send Sel J new tracks, ha

  18. Mr. Palmer Says:

    why didn’t RU foul there? that was dumb.

  19. halcyon Says:

    I am in for the BB Bracket fundraiser pool as well.

  20. Guyute711 Says:

    I agree Mr. P

  21. Selector J Says:

    haha Just overdub some real snare and we’re good @aj.

    All I’m saying is that they make a lot of reggae suck. Dancehall can make it work but reggae not so much. I think the same goes for rock music vs electronic music. Synth drums don’t belong in a band.

  22. poop goblin Says:

    Dissing echo laden snare hits. That’s just wrong

    Beware of blossom locals

  23. Robear Says:

    check out 9/18/00 Blossom, sans locals

  24. Kaveh Says:

    I am in for the BB Bracket fundraiser pool as well.

    ^Defending champ is in for the pool as well.

  25. bhizzle Says:

    Blossom…must have cup for beers…like Jones Beach….my favs are SPAC & Darien lots, but I haven’t been too many places either
