    Hey cats ‘n’ chicks. Another soul-crushing Ticketmaster experience! Hotel is booked in NYC and I have zero tix. I know I’m not the only one. Hoping to get in the door at least one doggone night with my gal. My email is cal at you-phoria dot com. Not losing hope yet!

    Miss you guys. It’s been a rough and busy year pretty much devoid of spare BB time. I think SW will back me up on that…

    Hope to see some of you in NYC. Have a great weekend all!

  5. halcyon Says:

    Folks in the NYC vicinity, I know this was posted a while ago, but is worthy of a repost. We are going to try and come down for this.

  6. kayatosh Says:

    hal: that looks like a good time. thanks for the heads up.

    well i still like TAB. tweaked arrangements + cyro (big addition) = an enjoyable listening experience. corona is awful. architect is barely tolerable adult contempo cheese. devil went down to GA is a nonstarter. but really enjoyed the remainder of the show. some TAB tunes improved this go round: valentine, pigtail. on Sand now. it’s boss! locked in.

  7. kayatosh Says:

    great recording of 10.18 TAB. some moments of crowd obnoxiousness, which settles down in set II.

  8. kayatosh Says:

    valentine has some funny lyrics (cones and webs of light etc.) that are delivered w/ unwavering earnestness by Ernesto.

  9. kayatosh Says:

    good luck to all you cats that wanna see pish in NYC. worth the effort.

    The band seems to be in proper alignment for greatness.

  10. kayatosh Says:

    TAB deserves respect. core lineup is solid and has a few yrs. under their belts. tight as drum rhythm section. well-rehearsed. cyro is $$$. and trey’s on his game.

    one day when the beats slow down

  11. kayatosh Says:

    i might as well phismo this whole page. on a roll flufifn TAB.


  12. Luther T. Justice Says:

    Just made a last minute decision while buying gas to go see TAB tonight. Bought tix while pumping gas & now on the road. Technology rules. Hopefully TAB will too.

  13. mr. palmer Says:

    Go get’em Luther.

    This place quieted down after the TM storm.

  14. tela'smuff Says:

    go get some Luther! assume you’re hitting git with Shaggy, so tell him i said what’s up.

    congrats Alf!

  15. phoammhead Says:

    was all jacked up earlier

    crashed hard . . . usually works that way

    going to see tim o’brien tonight

    first an early halloween party

  16. joe Says:

    guess I should try to score my Trey tickets for next week. any extras floating around for Paradise show? joeblackboard at yahoo. Still thinking the re-release day off or the days leading up to the show is how I’ll score good tickets. Just did 91 Bowie followed by 98 Ghost. such a different sound. well done by miner picking out the jams to illustrate the difference between eras.

  17. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    How tough will the ticket you want to get be for the next run?

    Video has nothing to do with it

  18. Phamily Berzerker Says:

    I need Ideas to help complete my costume for a party tonight.

    I am going as pocket.

    I have lint, spare change, a hole, a pool cue, matches, condoms, a rocket and a bulge, so far.

    What else?

  19. mr. palmer Says:

    keys, smokes, white bag….ticket stubs

  20. Oldskool Says:

    Lighter that is dead and won’t start

  21. phoammhead Says:

    white bag sounds suspect

    iron chef . . . sport?


  22. Dr Pronoia Says:

    Jesus, just checked the ‘hub to see what the secondary market looked like

    ….and it looks fucking scary

    sure things will settle down, and the BB will get its own in the building, but you’ve got to be a serious trustafarian or have super kind trades to get in for the run without a community to help

  23. Gavinsdad Says:

    I def made a kind trade for 2nd nite of AC Halloween run and it was worth more than the ticket price.

  24. joe Says:

    too bad for me I’m such a kind hearted soul then. I should try to rip off my fellow man with the new year’s tickets I scored via lottery. I will not, though. I’m a man of principle after all.

  25. xpun Says:


    Trade for your extra?
