Dick’s Picks 2013

8.30.13 (Jake Silco)

8.30.13 (Jake Silco)


Tweezer” 8.31 II

This late-set surprise completely blew up as Trey prominently featured his Camden ’09 “Tweezer” lick plucked from Led Zeppelin’s “When the Levee Breaks.”



Sand” 8.30 II

This jam provided the centerpiece of night one; the best version in a light summer for “Sand.”



Chalk Dust Torture” 8.31 II

The jam of the weekend at Dick’s—a multi-thematic monster anchored by the morphing rhythms of Jon Fishman.



Stash” 8.30 I

Though not quite on the level of Merriweather’s gem, this version elevates beyond the norm.



Carini” 9.1 II

A feel-good jam to cap a feel-good summer.



Caspian > Piper” 9.1 II

The second consecutive, out-of-character Denver “Caspian” segued, unfinished into a hot “Piper.”



Ocelot” 8.30 I

This was the jam with which the weekend began to elevate; my favorite version of the three thousand played this year.



Bathtub Gin” 8.31 I

A straightforward, though peaked-out and inspirational “Gin.”



Say Something > Walls of the Cave” 8.30 II

It didn’t take long for the band to place “Say Something” in the second set. Look for big things from this jam come fall tour.

    Maybe I’ll just buy an RV and put Madden in there to play you, Bingo. Could just sit in a wal mart parking lot

    Used to ride chunks of ice down stream in the winter, and pass a bottle of Southern Comfort back and forth. Fucking crazy looking back on it.

  4. dorn76 Says:

    I mean who the fuck drinks SoCo?

  5. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    I’m picturing dorn’s prep school girlfriend as the Amy Smart character in Outside Providence. DON’T YOU DARE RUIN IT FOR ME WITH REALITY.

  6. Jerome Garcia Says:

    Only stupid kids dorn. I’m a perfect example. Can’t even take a whiff of it anymore w/out gagging. Def had SoCo poisoning on more than one occassional & ruined at a minimum 2 pairs of J Crew chinos after passing out & throwing up all over myself. Ah to be 18 again…

  7. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    that was a private show right, palms?

  8. marcoesq Says:

    Yeah that Apollo show looked awesome. It was a Sirius event so invite only. And Howard left like halfway through it.

    1,500 person venue, jeebus. I work right across the street from there, always imagined what a Phish show would do to 125th street…

  9. ren Says:

    SoCo and Dr.Pepper back in HS….before I knew to drink rye whiskey neat

  10. marcoesq Says:

    ^Sometimes. I work right across the street from there sometimes.

    Dorn, heard crazy stories from that place. Sounds surreal, Soco and all.

  11. Mr. Palmer Says:

    T3- not 100% sure. I know that Sirius put it on and they gave the tickets out in some sort of lottery.. Place only holds 1500. A buddy posted a picture, he got 4th row.. Howard Stern was sitting behind him.

  12. Mr. Palmer Says:

    My buddy from sirius, Jose, got to introduce the band.

  13. ren Says:

    Used to get the 100 proof too…similar stories as @JG I’m sure. I think the chicks used to dig it so it was a “go to”…don’t think I’ve drank it since

  14. marcoesq Says:

    These are some pics from that night by Shuli, a dude that works on the Stern show


  15. Jerome Garcia Says:

    rendiggity! Last SoCo for this kid was circa Spring Semester ’97. Not going back. Rarely get into the boozahol anymore primarily b/c I can’t handle my shit. Heady brew & wine guy w/ the occassion Bloody G&T fine scotch or nipper of choice rum. Actually more of an IPA & stonerfuck than anything else these days.

    Get yoself to Hampton Df!

  16. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Crazy pictures from NYPD, late 70s


  17. dorn76 Says:

    She was a pretty damn cute freshman, and blond taboot….I recall getting pats on the back from buddies when she would walk into school meeting in the morning. Memries!

    Made a mix for me once, hand drawn flowers and hearts and shit. Kicker was late side b inclusion of “let’s spend the night together”…

    That got my attention.

  18. MiA Says:

    “The heightened emotion of being a teenager, the beauty of that place, right out of a fucking Separate Peace.”

    That sentence says a lot in it. Well done sir.

  19. BingosBrother Says:

    Madden RV on tour would be epic.

    One of my favorite Simpson’s moments:

    Grandma Simpson: I saw all your awards, Lisa. They’re mighty impressive.

    Lisa: Aw, I just keep them out to bug Bart.

    Grandma Simpson: Don’t be bashful. When I was your age, kids made fun of me because I read at the 9th grade level.

    Lisa: Me too!

    Homer: [walks on his hands] Hey, Mom! Look at me! Look at what I can do!

    Grandma Simpson: I see you, Homer. That’s very nice. [to Lisa] Although I hardly consider “A Separate Peace” the ninth-grade level.

    Lisa: Yeah, more like preschool.

    Grandma Simpson: I hate John Knowles.

    Lisa: Me too.

  21. Mr. Palmer Says:

  22. dorn76 Says:

    Luckily girls had arrived @deerfield a couple years before I arrived in ’91, so I wasn’t just stuck admiring Phinny’s golden tan.
