Piper” 8.8.98 II, Columbia, MD

Tweezer” 11.3.96 II, Gainesville, FL

A groovy and percussive version with Karl Perazzo; two shows after “Remain In Light” you can already hear the influence of the album’s style.

YEM -> Izabella” 7.26.97 II, Austin, TX

    Mornin’

  6. YborCity Says:

    In the deep, dark depths of a college all-nighter, it’s real good to know that places like this exist. Good morning, all!

  7. bob dylan Says:

    HOO-Hoosiers!

  8. Luther T. Justice Says:

    Got all of my tix with PTMB for Cinci, Star Lake, Blossom & Deer Creek. Only given lawns for Cinci & the first night of DC, otherwise got all good pavs. Gonna upgrade to pavs for Cinci cause it has the worst lawn in the midwest, even with its new space aged synthetic grass. They really hooked me up with the pavs for Blossom – front section, middle stage, 2 rows behind the pit. They did the same thing last year for Detroit. And I thank them.

  9. Guyute711 Says:

    Don’t tear an ACL with your funky dance moves in Cincy people.

  10. Mike in Austin Says:

    Selector Dad!

  11. Luther T. Justice Says:

    @G$$$

    For some reason, Shaggy doesn’t want to return to the meth motel in Kentucky. Can’t figure out why?

  12. Guyute711 Says:

    I was so thankful we went to your friend’s place after the show. That was a breath of fresh air. Can’t beat some free grub after a show.

  13. Mike in Austin Says:

    If they had my stuff it would be tight, Tight, TIGHT!

  14. Guyute711 Says:

    The nice thing about that motel was that you could work on your car in the parking lot and not look out of place.

  15. Luther T. Justice Says:

    Those guys are the most hospitable people you’ll ever meet. Normally, that’s where I stay for Cinci shows. Tracey even does made to order breakfast and doesn’t get pissed when you eat a whole box of Trader Joe lemom cookies during the overnight hours.

  17. Luther T. Justice Says:

    You could work on your car in your room I think.

    Remember that cupcake show that was on after we got back? Everyone was spun out & not paying attention until there was mention of salmon being added to a cupcake. It jolted everyone back to earth.

  18. Mike in Austin Says:

    Or http:\\www.kvrz.org\listen

  19. Selector J Says:

    @MiA Gdad’s not here at the radio show quite yet. He’ll be here in a little while, though.

    By the way, did my voice sound super loud? Using different headphones then usual and my voice through them sounded ridiculously louder than the music.

  20. MiA Says:

    No. I can’t figure it out. http://www.kvrx.org/listen

  21. MiA Says:

    Sounded real clear. But roots is kinda softer no?

  22. Selector J Says:

    Thanks, @MiA. Must be the headphones. Wearing my ear buds cause all of the station’s headphones are busted.

    And thanks for linking the show @MiA.

  23. Guyute711 Says:

    Totally forgot about the cupcakes, fascinating.

  24. MiA Says:

    Great track

  25. MiA Says:

    Looking forward to Miner’s tracks today too.
