Hey,
I'm thinking about checking these guys out, but it's a two hour drive is it worth it?

GO!  These guys rule, is it worth the drive?  Put it this way I had a big job interview today at 10:00 and I still hit last nights show.  I cut out early because I had to crash, but they were tearing it up!

I wish I could go see them tomorrow in Eugene, another two hour drive, but its not meant to be.  If I didn't have to work I'd go down there in a second though.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

yeah, I went last night with Hicks, and it was pretty sick.  They keep getting better and better.  I have probably seen them @ 20 times, and some times are better than others for sure, but they are killing it lately.  I'd say go for sure...I told Nab he should go to the Missoula show, but I don't know if he went or if he liked it.  I think they are way better than any of the other 'jam band' scene bands out there.  I mean, Panic is playing here tonight at the Coliseum and Raq played to 100 people last night?  Something's wrong here....

you couldn't drag me to most jambands shows. I really like seeing Raq though.

I remember the first time I saw these guys back in like 98-99.....

West Side Cheers in Bingo.....prolly, 20 people there.....they tore my face off, showed it to me, and put it back on my skull before the night was through.....
