Mike’s Song” 6.20 II, Cuyahoga Falls, OH

This menacing version descended upon Blossom, leaving many wide-eyed fans wondering what had just happened.

    i’m doing long term planning for my own microbrewery and working on names for IPA’s. came up with this one, based on recent experience.

    Shitty Poo Double IPA? does it have a good ring to it?

    “Tomorrow is the unknown, so how do you rehearse the unknown?” the 64-year-old musician born in Jalisco, Mexico, said while sitting back in a comfortable chair in his hotel room overlooking Beverly Hills, looking sharp in a gold-and-black houndstooth suit and crisp straw fedora (more than likely from his own Santana hat line). “To me, the unknown is inviting African musicians to join us, or Buddy Guy or Derek Trucks or Ben Harper, people from Phish, Warren Haynes — that’s what ‘Tomorrow’ is bringing to the House of Blues.

    fuckin boobies/how do they work

  6. tela'smuff Says:

    @bhizzle – so you’re suggesting Titty Poo Double IPA? interesting. a play the ol’ Cleveland Steamer?

  7. joe Says:

    you know you’re getting old when you get nostalgic looking at old ticketmaster tickets. looking forward to diving into these picks.

    good time last night at Galactic / Steel Pulse. found some good space up in the side balcony. mini dance circle with some heads. Corey Glover from Living Color fronted Galactic for most of their set. Did a nice version of Cult of Personality to close. speaking of nostalgia.

  8. Selector J Says:

    Come to think of it, magnetism is kind of a miracle.

    juggalo’d

  9. RamblinMind Says:

    @joe – did you end up finding someone for the extra ticket?

  10. bhizzle Says:

    Galactic / Steel Pulse

  11. Mike in Austin Says:

    Double Over IPA.

  12. joe Says:

    one of my friends ended up being able to come with. nice sized crowd in there for a Sunday but a mound/meatstick ratio similar to a phish show, unfortunately. but fortunately, a couple of heady ladies in the balcony dance circle.

  13. Mike in Austin Says:

    Congrats Tela’s!

  14. Gratefulcub Says:

    I’ve been loving the new Mardi Gras/Carnivale Galactic album.

  15. bhizzle Says:

    GCub – really like it? no sarcasm, serious question. during hiatus I became a HUGE fan of Galactic but then heard ruckus and started questioning them.

  16. tela'smuff Says:

    thx MiA!

  17. stapes Says:

    wrapped in a wet wipe clinched it for me.

  24. lumpyhead Says:

    Just saw these on PT. Anybody have anything to confirm/deny? I feel like they’re totally completely false. I would hope that CO is a sure thing.
