Tweezer” 8.14 II, Hershey, PA

Legend has always said it that this Herhsey show before The Clifford Ball wasn’t so hot. I never understood that assessment. Here’s another reason why.

Mike’s Song” 10.29 II, Tallahassee, FL

A percussion-drenched “Houses in Motion” jam laces the latter part of this jam in the final show before their seminal “Remain In Light” Halloween set.

The Great Curve” 10.31 II, Atlanta, GA

    Mmmmm…ruby tuesday salad bar.

    Morning guys. Absolutely beautiful day here…supposed to reach the low 60s and not a cloud in the sky. Tomatoes have been seeded, lettuce mixes are coming up, gonna seed carrots and sweet peas later with Wee Weaver.

    Mrs. Weaver is starting to appreciate the wonderfulness of IPAs…last night she realized for the first time just how much stronger they can be than her usual water-beer. I’m proud of her, even though she was in bed at 10.

    Y’all be good out there.

  3. angryjoggerz Says:

    Im looking forward to the days when my wife will have a drink with me again, been like 4 years. Between pregnancy and years of nursing, makes me a solo drinker. More for me, I guess!

    She did have some IPA for me when I got home last night, drank half of one and passed out. Being up 29 hours and flying around the world will do that. China needs IPA, the Qingdao’s not quite doing it, though beer is cheaper than bottled water, so that is a plus. Brush your teeth with it!

    Jesus, what day is it?

  4. phlorida phan Says:

    What time you headed down there @whb,

  5. MiA Says:

    干杯

  6. gavinsdad Says:

    Look for the bubbler @phan

  7. angryjoggerz Says:

    干杯, indeed. Its the most dangerous game in town. When you start busting out the 干杯 you gotta be ready to get pass out drunk.

  8. bouncin fan Says:

    and even though I like to bitch about 3.0 Hood’s this is one of if not my favorite. this greek III version.

    a couple great locked in full band twists pre peak, huge long sustained light feedback note, and nice atonal peak.

    great 3.0 Hood

  16. angryjoggerz Says:

    Got it from Vegas Wolfmans orange. Sumo is MVP for sure, but still say Telasmuff has the deepest orange on the block. Its not a contest, though, it is a bounty of goodness all in all. Thanks for spreading it around!

  17. phlorida phan Says:

    Or through, english was never my subject.

  18. The Flesh Says:

    Flesh needs dates

  19. bouncin fan Says:

    Trey destroys that Theme too

    if I had to pick a handful of shows that Trey was really on in the 75 or show 3.0s hows I’ve caught this Greek III would def be one of them

    first 2 nights Bethel and UIC 1 being others that come to mind

    but he was on fuckin point this Greek III

  20. bouncin fan Says:

    greetings, BB.

    plord: fine looking custom axe. thanks for posting the pic.

    leo: respect for growing your own.

    first brew of the day — troegs perpetual. haven’t had one in a while. clean, tasty DIPA at a mere 7.5%. $$$.

  24. plord Says:

    Been a minute since I spun Greek 3 but I think it’s time. I’ve never been disappointed by a relisten to that show, and that’s the truth.

    Trouble in paradise, I crashed my guitar! That circuitry is some complex shit and it is acting up on me last night and today. Great folks at Moog, it will get sorted, but right now I am Obummin.

    Lazy Saturday. Screw Daylight Savings!

  25. kayatosh Says:

    charging my player w/ the greek 2010 show. cuing up greek 3 soon. thanks for the nudge.
