TTFF: Tour Bookends

The Gorge '09 (W.Rogell)

With the Gorge exactly one week away, let’s take the final Friday before tour to review a few seminal jams that have gone down at both the Gorge and leg two’s closing locale, UIC Pavilion. Though some of these tracks have been posted before, they have the type of timeless staying power to warrant hearing again. A five-five split between the Gorge and UIC brings the last week before tour to an end. Enjoy the music…leg two awaits!

    @palmer – only way ive ever done tuna steak at home is on the grill. lemon, olive oil and rosemary.

  2. gavinsdad Says:

    i say we do it down and dirty at the billy goat. tho there wouldn’t be anything for AJ to eat cept for potato chips.

    Chitown peeps: what’s the best bar near the venue? tufanos? i don’t need to be a snob this time about needing fancy beer. just looking for something in walking distance with a low jerkyboy factor. i’d think this would be possible UIC being a campus and all but who knows. worst case scenario BYOO (bring your own ozium) up to my room cause we wont be far by pub transpo.

    is the venue the UIC-Halstead stop on the el? or is Racine better?

    also where is the post show grub near the venue? mannys coffee shop? als italian beef?

    Hey quick question… Can you guys click my name to link to my MediaFire files and tell me if there are errors with the text?? Trying to figure out if the glitch is just with my browser or if everyone sees it… Thanks.

    UIC bitches

  5. Mr. Palmer Says:

    yeah gdad. i figured on just grilling. Quick sear style.

  6. bob dylan Says:

    Is anyone driving back to New York or Philly area post UIC?

    I wanna drive back instead of fly if anyone has room.

  7. Mr. Palmer Says:

    looks ok Bwana. didn’t click on files though, just your name.

  8. gavinsdad Says:

    dancin – you doing all of leg 2? when does school start back up? or did you tell me you graduated at Bethel 1 and i spaced?

  9. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

  10. Guyute711 Says:

    I forget the whole recipe but I have cooked tuna steaks with worcestershire sauce, lemon and garlic, mighty tasty.

  11. Guyute711 Says:

    no tt’ers today?

  12. gavinsdad Says:

    just uic @DF. see you there. where you all staying?

  13. voopa Says:

    Ugh, I backed into a cactus while mowing the back 40, and I still have a bunch of thorns in my lower left shoulder that I couldn’t tweez out myself, and mrs. v is out at a meeting. Argh. I’m getting tired of leaning forward, and it’s too hot to lay on my stomach.

  14. bob dylan Says:

    That fracking sucks Voopa. Good luck with that.

  15. LoadBearingPoster Says:

    @ Voopa – Use duct tape to get the cactus out. Southwest secret.

  16. leo weaver Says:

    Preparing for the trip. Jar of fresh cannonball wing rub done, working on some gee whiz confections now.

  17. leo weaver Says:

    Good luck with that voopa.

  18. leo weaver Says:

    Best wishes and good vibes to the butter clan. Keep her hydrated. Mrs. Weaver had to go to emergency room a few weeks ago due to severe dehydration. Was a rough first 3 mos.

  19. Selector J Says:

    And the award for first occurrence of tweezer and cactus in the same post without any reference to phish goes to… Voopa!


  20. Mr. Palmer Says:

    llfa @ selector! right over my head.

  21. Gavinsdad Says:

    Hey Leo – somehow I missed that you are having a little cannonball. Congrats to you and the missus! That’s awesome news 🙂

  22. DukeOfLizards Says:


    If I do drive (which is a big if at this point) I should have room for you.

    Along those lines, @everyone: my tour co-pilot may have to back out of UIC for reasons outside of his control. We’d been planning on hotelling it, but I’m not about to shell out the dough for a room by myself. Anyone have crash space in the event that this happens?

  23. bob dylan Says:

    Duke, I have to see a dr the 18th to clear me for work. Would you be up for a 19th departure?

  24. bob dylan Says:

    We’d be kickin it with the fam.

  25. leo weaver Says:

    Thanks gdad! Haven’t really been announcing it all over, but I guess a few folks know by now. So yeah, thanks! Pretty crazy. Trip west will be my last big hurrah for a bit.

    Off to find some dinner while caramels cool.
