    and the drive after EUG does not excite me

    ^ There pretty much isn’t anything exciting about driving I5.

    “my friend has thrown out his back pretty bad. torso at a 45 degree angle to pelvis. left hip jacked up. any suggestions besides indica and heating pad?”

    Yes. Don’t self medicate and see a physical therapist. Your friend injured themselves. PT can do miracles. Just ask Stoney who was temporarily cured by MrsDV (Hereby known as Padmé)

    Admittedly a fan of Finn and Jake. Took me a second to get it. But yeah, great stuff.

    note: this is not a reference to the greenboard

  5. Stoney Case Says:

    MrsDV super incredible healer. Tempted to move to damn Austin just because of it.

    Tela, great minds. Hope they sprinkle in some webcasts, but the schedule doesn’t really lend. Mon>Fri in SF not gonna sell many. Cast the SBB shows? Maybe, but so small, seems unlikely. Don’t wanna wait for Vegas. I need to find 24 hour child care options or I’m sitting out the whole tour. Gonna have my son back starting September.

    This is what I’m into these days for his and other’s sake:

    ATX BBers mark your calendars for Sat 11/15. Let’s get Wonka’d. Primus stylee.

  7. Stoney Case Says:

    RE: GReensky

    Don’t know what to say, but will ask. No shows in Arcata, which is their second home. They had to build tour around the myriad of music festivals they are playing. Also have some gigs for the first time in bigger rooms, like the SF Fillmore. Think that played a part in the schedule as well. I’ll add it to the list of reasons to bust matty’s chops after tour.

  8. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    Tela’s sounds like an easy decision to me

  9. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    Filled out my tour retirement ballot last night. Doing the last 10

  10. BingosBrother Says:


    Self Medicate Erday

    Most PT’s > Most Doctors

  11. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    @T3 for Vegas I filled out for 2 GA and 2 best available (on same ballot)

  12. Jerome Garcia Says:

    Thanks Knowy Case. They should hit NOLA > Houston > Austin. Fuck Dallas. I know bear & crew could get out lots of folks in Nawlins & btwn my peeps in Htown & folks here we’d show them lots of love.

  13. jtran Says:

    I’m going “best avail” for vegas fasho

  14. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    huh. so now moe. will be at brooklyn bowl vegas on halloween playing with trey’s horn gals (and billy payne)?

    it’s gonna be pretty wooky out there this year. their show starts late too. interesting.

    yeah, I think I’ll probably see what I can do for a GA one too but for now I hav a 2fer as “best available”

  15. BingosBrother Says:

    Knowy Case $$$

  16. vapebraham Says:

    lovin MPP 1 set II on respin. carini->ghost>steam — all $$$.

  17. jtran Says:

    just put in for SB, LA, Vegas

  18. vapebraham Says:

    i initially questioned the flow of MPP1 set II. now hearing plenty of flow (and great playing).

  19. Kaveh Says:


    re: Greensky: I’ve never heard of the Stings and Sol festival; you know much about it. Looks like a great lineup of bands.

  20. IrieWalton Says:

    Vegas is gonna be ridiculous. Luckily, Greensky is doing a double dip in Portland the weekend afterwards or I would be tempted to head to Sin City.

    Threw my hat into the lottery for Eugene>SB, but will likely tack on at least LA, too, if not SD.

  21. tela's_muff Says:

    that SF lodging expense was scary. i ended up with a sweet little apt on border of North Shore/Telegraph Hill for $715. seems like a good deal for what i was seeing with hotels. just need to secure those tickets via lottery and i’m all good.

    i only put in 1 for 10/31 floor. not sure what my strategy is there..

  22. little umbrellas Says:

    My girlfriend’s cousin is getting her babies ears pierced and I think it so weird. Why cause it trauma or be the cause of its first pain? Ptsd?

    Also it’s very gender specific. Seems horrible to me. Wtf?

  23. BingosBrother Says:

    Me to wife : Dude, I think phish is reading the BB. I wrote that I hadn’t caught a jammed out Tweezer since 1.0 and check out this setlist!

    Wife to me : How the fuck is playing Tweezer 5 times considered jammed out?

    Me : Ummm…

    @kaveh – nice, how’d you get in touch with Jeffrey? I’ve only meet him a couple times but he’s super nice and pretty good at explaining what he does in comprehensible terms.

    I hear you on a lot of the 77s. I’m the same way, except for the best shows which are now all reaching or past the spin burnout limit for me. The exception is late fall which I still find thrilling. From the may box Tuscaloosa is the heavyweight I think.

    Waterwheel set break video. Brief cameo of our very own @BobDylan!
