Get off his giant lawn.

not bad at all.  it was a great day.  good to get back to alpine after a 3 year personal hiatus and the staff weren't assholes.  music was good.  that gif was from the 2nd set when bobby was having mic problems.  it was hilarious!

busy week
7/07 and 7/08 Wheels of Soul: TTB, openers Marcus King Band, Drive byTruckers

7/12 Neil Young solo acoustic


TTB was great. Each show had a different feel, only 2 repeats. Highlights of Saturday were Tell the Truth, Idle Wind with Sahib Teri Bondi jam, and The Storm > Whipping Post. Sundays highlights were Anyday with Blue Sky jam, Shame with Afro Blue jam, and Little Martha > Midnight in Harlem

Marcus King is the real deal. They only played 1/2 hour each night, both sets were different. I could have heard more

Drive By Truckers was meh. The second night we just sat outside and grabbed some drinks and a sandwich

Neil Young was - Neil Young. If you read his book you could have predicted how the show would go. He had about 5 acoustic guitars, an electric, 2 grand pianos, 1 upright piano, an organ, a banjo, a ukelele, and several harps. He would walk around in between songs, look at his instruments, and then decide what to do. Sometimes he would strum a bit, then put the guitar down and go to another one.  In between he would sip on a beer and tell stories. Total stream of consciousness. In the beginning, people were screaming songs, and he said yea, I'll get to it. last night (also in Boston) I played the requests from Detroit. People kept on shouting requests and he would say - OK, that's another I won't do tonight. After a while, when someone screamed out a song someone else would yell out "Shutup!!!"

His voice is still the same. He played for about 1:45. Highlights - On the Way Home, Long May You Run, After the Goldrush (organ), Ohio (on electric), Needle and the Damage Done, Tonight's the Night (piano) adn a few others I can't even remember at this point. A true living legend

ETA - found Neil's set list

I was reading a couple of articles about the Detroit show with people yelling out requests and that Neil was far from being of a fan of that.

Nice to know about the TTB show and what to kind of expect from Marcus King and Truckers. I'm seeing them tomorrow night at The Fox.

So I caught the War on Drugs with Alvvays opening on Wednesday night in Halifax.
Alvvays were a major meh but I may have been in the wrong frame of mind for their set after popping a bunch of boomers. They just seemed to be going through the motions, no energy whatsoever.
The War on Drugs came on just as it was getting dark with a thick fog overhead, which totally added to the light show. They absolutely killed it. Granduciel was incredible and really blew me away. Highlight of the night was the Neil tribute to close the show. No encore was a bit of a bummer but I think there was a strict curfew since it was outside and in the heart of downtown Halifax.

Setlist:
Brothers
Pain
An Ocean in Between the Waves
Strangest Thing
Arms Like Boulders
Burning
Eyes to the Wind
Red Eyes
Lost in the Dream
Holding On
Under the Pressure
Like a Hurricane
Instead of having to plan and save for your next vacation, why not work on creating a life you don't feel the need to escape from...

I suspect putin and trump have something to do with this
that's great. people are stupid.
My records are my media for music.

Went to Saturday's show at The Fox and agree w/ the both of you regarding MKB and DBT. DBT was fine but a full hour set felt waaaayyyy too long.

TTB was great as always. Highlights were Leaving Trunk, Lord Protect My Child (not sure I've heard anyone cover this Dylan tune before), Midnight in Harlem, Down In the Flood and then to close the set Jimmy Herring came out for a 20 minute Elizabeth Reed. That was killer, obviously. 

On a side note, I can't remember the last show I was at where there was so much talking. All around me for the entire night. It was insane. It was also kind of funny to watch people trying to decide whether they should sit or stand. Because the crowd for TTB shows are generally older, they all sit but once that first group of younger folk stand up it just turned into a domino effect. Really, most people wanted to sit but couldn't.

That's always so awkward.  One time at a Dylan show (in a coliseum) my father in law went down like 20 steps and made an entire section sit down.  He literally got like 50-75 people to sit at once by yelling at them. Not something I would ever do in a million years, but  I was laughing my ass off.

Check out Susan's album Hope and Desire. All covers, including that one, a great version of You've Got the Silver (Derek on slide), Sanctuary Band, and on the bonus tracks Mr Charlie.

Funny re -standing. The average age at the Gilford show was significantly higher than most I've been to, Mansfield was mixed. We were in the 2nd section back in the Pav and were among the very few standing in our section. At first we felt a little self conscious, but then it was fuck it, we wanted to dance and have fun.

Everyone was up at Mansfield

and that Liz Reed with Herring is great!

Show notes:
As I said to MBW last night, the security lines at this venue suck ass. LiveNation can kiss it. Took over a half hour to get into the venue from the lot - no separate bag check line, lackadaisical security. Missed the first two Pixies songs, came in during Bone Machine.

Pixies played a great set, if a bit up and down, but they were playing to a 2/3 empty arena until halfway through their set due to the backup at the gates. Always a fun band to see live, they're still rocking almost 30 years after the first time I saw them.

Weezer crushed it, they were awesome. Perfect band for a summer night at JB, they were having fun and the boat gag was perfect for the venue - made it more intimate and had the whole arena singing along. Great time, but that 7am meeting came awful early today.
