I will be in Nola for a wedding the first weekend deliberately scheduled to coincide with JF. Rooting for the Phish rumor but damn, what a near miss this would be for my great dream to one day see the Stones.

I approve of these reverse-covers.

So, the JF rumor mill is on high alert regarding the Stones. The rumor is that 2nd Thursday will be the Stones in the headlining spot... and that tickets will be capped for the first time ever and they expect it to sell out... AND that tickets for that single day will be $150+ while every other JF day will remain its usual $80-90...

Explains why a Brass Pass is 7 days and the one day not included is 2nd Thurs.

WTF, Quint?



Anyway, we delivered the Bomb.

I do think people are not as bad with their phones as they were when these contraptions came out. Yeah, it's still pretty annoying to have someone stick a screen up in your line of sight for an extended period of time. But at a lot of the kind of shows we go to, where people come from all over and reunite with various friends and the crowd is fluid, the phone is an important tool and depriving everyone of that just because a small number will brandish them strikes me as not always reasonable.

Interestingly, I saw Dave Chapelle and for all the stern warnings, the surrendering of phones at the door was strictly on the honor system. You could've kept it in your pocket the whole time. I didn't see any offenders, though, so I guess the message was effectively sent.

You're allowed to go out to the lobby or whatever and use your phone. It's not like you're incapacitated. If I really wanted to connect with someone, it was possible.

Thanks for listening!

I liked your spunk on this one RJ.

Ironically, as we recorded, I was sitting half-paralyzed with fear that I was gonna vomit if I moved too fast.

Ha...

Yeah, good episode.

I am def on your team RJ about not watching the lights.  I mean, the lights are cool, and like you, I love the pictures, but during a show I'm either watching the band or my eyes are closed, or looking at the ground or something.  It's not that I don't look at the lights on purpose, I just don't really notice them to be honest.
