Saw my first moe show last night and honestly it was pretty good, better than expected. 

It helped that were playing at Revolution Hall which is pretty much the best venue in town.

Would definitely go again if they come back.

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.

I really like Moe, although it has been years since I've seen them. Had tickets to last Novembers three night Buffalo stand but had to bail. Loved their early stuff rebubula, plane crash, Mexico, etc... not sure why more people didn't chase after them; most likely because it was at a time when Phish were at their Zenith.

Live music exists!

Saw the Marcus King Trio last night at the "Drive in Live" series. This was at a fairgrounds in south western NH. Cars were about 6 ft apart. The space to the left of your car was yours for chairs, table, food, drinks, whatever. Masks were required if you left your spot. Pretty chill atmosphere.
The Trio put on a great show, mostly blues based jams with some jazz and psychedelia thrown in and power trio rock. Stephen Campbell and Jack Ryan crushed it on bass and drums.

As Marcus said, it was great to be playing in front of live people. He wanted to come out and hug all of us but that's not allowed.

On Saturday I attended a real live music show for the first time since, I believe, Phish in N. Charleston, 2019.

It was Tedeschi Trucks, who are touring with reduced personnel at the moment. At this show it was guitar (x2), bass, keys, drums (x1), dude who does vocals + tambourine and acoustic guitar now and then. No horns. The music was great, of course, and everyone in the band is excellent, of course. Susan is no slouch on guitar but on this night she shredded more and better than I'd seen before--frankly, than I thought she could. Either that's my bad or she's been improving.

The venue was the Historic Columbia Speedway: an old stock car venue (1951-71), just a half-mile track with an infield, little to no other original infrastructure to be seen. It had been a sort of generic outdoor-events space that converted into a COVID concert venue last fall. You get a roped-off pod of, say, eight feet square, that will hold up to eight ticketed people. You can bring your own tailgate chairs and table. The infield is a sea of these pods. They are comfortably spaced out, but that also pushes everyone away from the stage. The soundboard is at, like, row six, and we were in row 14 and already a good distance back. On the one hand, the spaciousness creates a laid-back vibe, and you might chat with your podmates now and then, but there's the obvious effect on energy. Still, I heard people saying they liked the setup.

It's been interesting, as gig-starved artists seek out available places to play, to see the bookings at this racetrack. Billy Strings played four nights(!) in April, Dark Star played two(!) recently, Bisco(!) is coming. Even with the low density of the pods the place is still way oversized for most shows; on Saturday you could look behind you at about half an empty field, empty but for all the pillars and ropes. Who would want to be at the back of that field, anyway? What I'm wondering is if this venue is catching on just in time for the more established venues in larger markets to begin opening back up, and for everyone to just go back to playing there.
Is this still Wombat?

Sounds like a good time. I'm gonna say you were underrating Susan. She's amazing and has been for some time. If she's getting better (which is possible... fine wine and all that) I look forward to hearing her again soon.

I totally forgot to post this, but 2 weeks ago I went to the unveiling of a new wing of the BB King museum in Indianola MS.  It was a free all day extravaganza with a super jam lineup at sunset.   It was Susan, Derek, Gary Clark jr, Bobby rush, and christone ?kingfish?  Ingram along with some of BB King?s band mates.  Let?s just say they brought more heat than the steamy Mississippi delta.   If y?all like the blues and don?t know kingfish, check him out.   
The events in our lives happen in a sequence in time, but in their significance to ourselves they find their own order; the continuous thread of revelation.

Must have been amazing

Going to see some some iteration of TTB in a couple weeks, can?t wait

And yeah, Susan can play. She has a great mentor and tough competition on stage

Susan has always impressed in every way, don't get me wrong. This felt like a level-up. Circumstantial caveats apply. My sample size is admittedly smaller than for some other guitarists I could name, and now I'll blame Derek for part of that, because he's so great he gets most of the airtime, but then again what better potential mentor/tutor (as Steve says) to have living under the same roof as you, if you were inclined to tap that as a resource.

I remember seeing her open for the ABB back on the tour where two of them met and fell in love - she was incredible! In TTB she sits back a lot, but when she start soloing, Derek will egg her on. She's still got it for sure!

I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

I saw them Friday night. At first it was weird, no horns and the venue half full (or half empty, depending on your perspective). Soon, there was plenty of energy, and the extra space to dance was a bonus.
The band smoked. Derek killed it as usual, and I wonder if he put even more into it given the circumstances - fewer band members and also "covid recovery". He is clearly the best guitar player on the planet. Susan also had some very nice solos. As mentioned she keeps getting better.
All in all, a great show.

Saw Primus do the Rush album Farewell to Kings last night.

It was fine, I like me some Rush, but I would have been even more satisfied with two sets of Primus.

Highlights for me were opening with Tweekers including some LaquerHead in the middle.  Mr Krinkle.  And Tommy the Cat in the middle of the encore.

Les seemed to be having a great time, and the sing along during Closer to the Heart was fun.

I saw them a few days ago and they did not disappoint. Closer and Cygnus are definitely the highlights of the Rush set. We got Antipop in Indy, as well as an extended/jammed version of Seas of Cheese!

You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens.

Same Antipop & Cheese in Cleveland.
