    let me add to that though – if i want to check out a show from the night before or a day or two before, i spin the SBD first because you know what you’re going to get and you’re going to hear little nuances and the more quietly spoken banter between band members.

    if you don’t compare your AUDs and just grab the first one that pops up and it’s a stinker, it kind of fucks up your first impression of the show and playing.

    DL’ing – thanks AJ

  7. angryjoggerz Says:

    Great! I really like this one, not the most impeccably mixed (Im no dj) but the flow is there and the vibe is right. It is as if the dj had wanted the rock the dancefloor, but took a bunch of boomers instead and decided to freak out on the decks while singing his favorite songs.

    Too much metaphor.

    just checked out the steam video. love it (and the steam visuals, etc.). Anyway, here’s the challenge for today. Arrange the official videos from the tour so far into the most cohesive playlist.

    WTF is today be responsible at work day? πŸ™‚

  13. jdub Says:

    The Steam video is top grade. As is the song. Looking forward to hearing and hopefully witnessing that blow up this summer. The jam during Sundays version struck a chord and sounded similar to the galloping groove segment in Pink Floyd’s Echoes. So far for me this song has Ghost, LF, and Floyd fingerprints with quite an original vibe. Not a bad concoction.

    Safe travels to all on the Southern Cross closing run. Have no fear, the bands been saving some tasty jams for down south.

    mornin’ party people.

    tear it up down there tonight, everybody. we’ll be watching you from home.

    anyone have an extra DL code for Darien? thanks! typeiiijpd of the googs mail persuasion

    Blossom Piper is reminiscent of Greek Light in places. Yep, sure is. They hit on some very similar themes and tones. Go check it out again.

    I spent part of last night getting the yarden cleaned up some for Friday’s BBBBQ. Should be a pretty nice day if the heat and rain hold off.

  17. Luther T. Justice Says:


    Are the Hidden Valley Kings being invited to the party?

  18. lastwaltzer Says:

    Leo you hitting the GA shows?

  19. Leo Weaver Says:

    I told ’em they could stop by @Luther, but they gotta leave the handguns, brass knuckles, and knives at the end of the drive. And they gotta bring they ho’s for urrybody.

    Unfortunately not @lw…gotta get some work done this week to pay for my Ohio trip and these NC shows. And pay Tela’s for the Tahoe cu$ty crib. I’ll probably be watching from the couch tho.

  20. lastwaltzer Says:

    Did you just say probably? What kind flegionare are you?

  21. Leo Weaver Says:

    A busy one? Probably watching from the couch, MAYBE watching from my adirondack in the garden πŸ˜‰

    Srsly tho, the mother in law is in town, so I may have to entertain her a little bit. I’ll be hooked up for the stream, no worries. No need to question my card-carrying credentials.

  22. ThePigSong Says:

    phew, tickets at will call.

    crisis averted.

    Should I read back at how the last week of shows have been? Haven’t followed along much at all.

  23. cal Says:

    Morning BB! I think yesterday was kind of a between-Phish-shows blues day for me. Feeling more normal today.

    I have to get something off my chest quick, though.

    The bass player for moe. is one of the most annoying musicians I’ve ever had to listen to play. Was he good at some point in the past? I mean, this band has to live pretty comfortably just on making music, right? I can probably think of a dozen bass players just in Milwaukee who could destroy this guy.

    Otherwise, things are good. PRIMO couch tour tonight, woohooooo!!

  24. Robear Says:

    Hey all! The calm before the storm. Kid stuff has me realizing I won’t be catching the stream.

    Someone keep a h3tty DL code for me from the Southern Cross.

    Also, looking for DL codes for PNC and Darien.

  25. Leo Weaver Says:

    Alpharetta>NC peeps…peach season has just started up and they’re beginning to roll in around here. There are lots of peach stands along I-85 between Greenville-Spartanburg and Charlotte (exits 80-106 primarily)…look for the signs and support the local peach growers. You’ll be driving through one of SC’s top peach-growing areas. See all those wide short trees in rows just off the highway? Yeah, the ones with little orange balls. Yep, peach orchards.
