Ten Tunes For Friday

12.31.09 (W.Rogell)

Welcome back to Friday, and these ten tunes focus, specifically, on summer tours past. With a couple months separating us from Summer 2010, I figured we’d take a trip down memory lane. Please choose to either download the selections OR stream them to minimize bandwidth cost. Thanks, and have a great weekend!


Reba” 8.2.03 I

A brilliant highlight from IT’s first set. There’s nothing like an afternoon, festival-sized “Reba” jam.



Tweezer” 7.25.98 II

A Summer ’98 classic featuring larger-than-life, bulbous dance grooves.



Drowned > Chalkdust Reprise” 7.11.00 I

Flooding over from yesterday’s “Drowned” post, here we have “the Phish from Vermont” indulging in musical-comedy, best blending this jam into the old-school, anthemic, “Chalkdust Reprise.”



Split Open and Melt” 6.11.94 II

A concise, power-packed version from Red Rocks ’94. A perfect example of musical density.



Stash” 7.22.93 I

An old-school shred-fest for Big Red under a deluge at Stowe, VT during Summer ’93. On stage Trey remarked that the stage crew was talking about canceling the show due to possible electrocution. His response? “I told ’em Fuck that. Put the plug up my ass and count out Llama!”



Disease > Free” 6.26.95 II

A personal favorite, and a deep dive into Summer ’95 psychedelia.



Scent of a Mule” 8.17.97 III

Oh no, the quintessential set-killer! Think again, this is Limestone, Maine, and in final set of The Great Went, “Scent of a Mule” became an ethereal launchpad. Out of the usual “Mule Duel” segment, the band decided to play as the spirit moved, drifting into an beautiful and experimental segment of music. The band delicately passed through the “Mind Left Body” theme and a digital delay jam before awkwardly crashing back into Gordon’s speedgrass.



Demand > Antelope” 6.24.94 II

This smoking experimental “Antelope” hails from the intimate confines of The Murat Theatre, circa ’94; a magnificent, multi-faceted piece of music.




7.16.98 The Gorge, George, WA < Torrent

7.16.98 The Gorge, George, WA < Megaupload

The Gorge '09 (W.Rogell)

The first night of The Gorge ’98, a two-set beast in its own right, even though it has always lived in the shadows of 7.17’s peak performance.

I: The Squirming Coil, NICU, Stash, Reba, Fast Enough for You > When the Circus Comes, Run Like an Antelope

II: Julius, The Moma Dance,  Piper, Axilla, David Bowie, Tube, Slave to the Traffic Light

E: Sample in a Jar

  2. [An Unrelated] Wilson Says:

    I miss loops. They were THE stuff back in the day.
    My friend is convinced they dropped most looping in an effort to shoo away the some of the x/trancy-dancy riff raff crowd.

    Happy friday everyone. Go Giants. Go Bobcats.

  3. garretc Says:


    As in the San Francisco Giants?

    If yes, then awwwwwyyyyyyeeeeaaaaahhh!

  4. jdub Says:

    The last 20 minutes of a Friday are always the hardest. Especially when I can stop working when i want, not that i got that much done today.

    It’s official, I’m done. Weekend commence

  5. [An Unrelated] Wilson Says:

    Love it!!


  7. Leo Weaver Says:

    Tyrannical maniac, your boss @T3PO…what the hell’s his problem?!?!

    And here I am at 4:50 on a Friday actually doing work…I’ll be damned…

  8. She Divides Says:

    afternoon everyone,
    this is my first time on the board this week 🙁 I’ve been swamped wrapping up projects at my soon to be old job 🙂

    Miner-thanks for the TTFF, I’ll be enjoying them on my bus ride up to NYC tonight (got to love wi-fi). Bit celebrations this weekend for my little brother’s 25th birthday!

    good vibes to all the Weavers in Weaverville!

    Your boy is not taking the cancellation of 24 too well.


    People reports that after a long Thursday night of consuming alcohol, actor Kiefer Sutherland was escorted out of a London strip club by bouncers who had put him in a headlock. Sutherland, 43, was photographed “shirtless and stumbling” on the street around 4 a.m.

  10. garretc Says:

    Yeah, I’m bummed that this is gonna be the first Dodgers-Giants series in LA while I’ve been living down here and there’s no way I’ll be able to make it…

    Doesn’t mean we won’t stomp ’em though!

  11. Leo Weaver Says:

    Thanks SheDivides…we appreciate it very much. Have fun hazing your little bro!

  12. HarryHood Says:

    haha…. Yea, my bird tennis days are over. So are my golf days for a while as well thanks to the injury. It seems to be getting a little better, but it’s a bitch when you tear a tendon. It seems like about once an hour I tweek it just right and hurt it all over again……

    Hopefully things work out with the Mrs Weavers situation. Family issues are the worst kind of issues, but family is family and you can’t change that. Just keep your wits and a good attitude and it should work out.

  13. willowed Says:

    They failed to explain that he was an imposter, impersonating Kiefer. Jack Bauer found out and flew to england whooped the impersonator and that bouncer’s ass with his pinky toe.

  14. willowed Says:

    They also forgot to explain that Jack then went to the club (at 5:00 a.m.)and slept with all the strippers…then saved the world from a terrorist attack!

  15. She Divides Says:

    @ Leo–Yea, unfortunately it will probably be my and my older brother struggling to keep up with the mania of the youngins… will be fun though!

  16. willowed Says:

    OK boys and girls.
    Another great day.
    I will catch you in the a.m.
    When you get home, throw in a Moma Dance and let the bass take you away!!

  17. She Divides Says:

    @garretc….sorry to hear about the snafu with the transcript. I definitely agree with the other comments that you should keep asking (calling is probably better than email) for a way to resolve this, particularly since you can’t change UCLA’s practices. Might even be good to see if you can get someone from the UCLA Registrar (or whatever office handles transcripts) to be on your side in this.

    I tend to think that a good part of the education you get with a college degree is learning to deal with B.S. like this. Definitely taught me to be my own best advocate. Good luck!

  18. locust the lurker Says:

    Anyone heard Marley’s “Wounded Lion Sessions?”

    The title track has a great groove. Nice to hear some new (to me) Bob.

  19. Leo Weaver Says:

    “Family issues are the worst kind of issues, but family is family and you can’t change that.”

    Bingo brother…that’s EXACTLY what it all boils down to. We’ll get thru it, it’ll just take time and patience. Take it easy on those tendons, they’re a bitch to get back in line.

  20. Leo Weaver Says:

    Take it easy @willowed…

    I’m out too…y’all have a nice Friday evening. See you tomorrow…

  21. garretc Says:

    Thanks @SD!

    Yeah, sent a few emails, made a few phone calls, but, being a Friday afternoon, of course nothing is gonna happen quite yet… We’ll see how things go…

    I must say though, if nothing else, the positive vibes from here have at least definitely salvaged my Friday! Thanks all!

  22. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    have an enjoyable weekend, everybody!

  23. Selector J Says:

    Thanks for the heads up on the Wounded Lion. I’d never heard of it until now. Can’t wait to check it out!

    Mighty Diamonds in town tonight for Austin’s reggae fest… Anyone wanna babysit my kids?? 🙂
    @Austinites: I’ll be at selecting some tunes at the Dub Corner (i.e. the sound system set up in the back of the festival grounds) tomorrow from 2-3pm. Come say hello if you’re around.
