    ^ One hell of a magical night in the building that night; floored.

  2. George W. Kush Says:

    nice list StoneCasa. Commencing now.

  3. Stoney Case Says:

    lulz GWK, looking at a local group ‘Casa of Humboldt’. advocacy group for abused and neglected kids, dealing with court system.

  4. RicksFork Says:

    I’ll keep that in mind Bingos, thanks. My offer stands as well.

  5. George W. Kush Says:

    10/27 sounds great on Ptracks. Much crisper than many of the auds on there.

  6. Spasm Waiter Says:

    Don’t they dig dropping dates on Tuesdays? That would make Tuesday 11th the day I think.

  7. Stoney Case Says:

    yeah, yeah. 311 good call

    think there’s a nice ‘Life on Mars’ from that show too, GWK

  8. Jerome Garcia Says:

    Speaking of pens the is it the iCloud of which you speak rl? My buddy has one & it’s a helluva value for $65. Dug the one rl posted a wk or so ago The Dabbler I believe for $95.

    Ricks James +1 for Ian McLagan. Speaking of he & his Bump Band do a free Thurs Happy Hour at Lucky Lounge from 6-8PM when he’s in town. Going to see him after work esta noche. One of my fav Happy Hour bands in the ATX. & they pretty much always play Ooh La La tzara’s.

    Stoney you really should jump on GSBG terr.

    FTR JG coined both Hop Shaman & Hop Prophet. Ricks James bitch! for President.

  9. Jerome Garcia Says:

    In my group of friends from growing up bitd who are also my fellow Jazz Festivarians everyone’s always tryin to cop everyone else’s coinage. So just out of natural habit that I through that out there…not really for self aggradation…well…maybe just a smidge…

  10. Jerome Garcia Says:

    ^throw not through. Beg your pardon corncob.

  11. Jerome Garcia Says:

    I know some of you cats have been waiting w/ baited breath…

  12. Jerome Garcia Says:


  13. ren Says:

    JG- Based on rumored dates what you thinkin’ bout hittin?

  14. Jerome Garcia Says:

    ren thinking just might be able to make Dicks. Maybe a wknd’s worth of something on the Left Coast. Already have too much PTO & $ allocated elsewhere. But damn a multi night stand at Austin would be sweet. I’ve got space bitches. For the right price of course.

  15. George W. Kush Says:

    8/10/97 – they just don’t make em like that anymore. A DC release ala Ventura would be noice. 4 show box…DC 97/98

  16. ren Says:

    Hoping to make it to Dicks as well but will come down to the same conditions as yours. Funny how when you’ve got the $ you don’t have the time and when you have the time you’re usually worried about $. As much as I’m not into Randalls Island its pretty much in my back yard so will prob hit those.

  17. BingosBrother Says:

    I believe Vape gets credit for Hop Prophet. Hop Shaman is JGs. Stoner fuck.

  18. Jerome Garcia Says:

    Definitely. Hell I’d even consider crunching the #s on the economics of that wknd if I could get room & board at casa de ren.

  19. Jerome Garcia Says:

    Well maybe. I want to say I used them both in my post post trying HeadyT. I could be wrong…to the archives!

  20. Jerome Garcia Says:

    Think vapey got it from me brah 😉

  21. RicksFork Says:

    Lilumb is currently my Pliny Pastor and I will attend his service anytime.

  22. lumpyhead Says:

    based on rumored dates, I could hit:

    Northerly (maybe)

  23. btb Says:

    JuJu Guru?

  24. George W. Kush Says:

    I was going to comment on StoneBears list but they are all so damn good I have no words. Hadn’t heard most of them, save CCCC Halleys, in a while. ’95 cacophony, sum ’97 funkrock, and ’99 millennial bliss at their finest.

  25. btb Says:

    At my local beer store everyone calls me “Mugs” or “Mugglesworth” or some variation down to the pathetic “Muggles”. They even gave me this gigantic 40oz mug to drink out of, which is kind of hipster ironic funny I guess.
