Quote from: Trey AnastasioBut, 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.
Quote from: Hicks on February 29, 2020, 01:21:39 PMSaw 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.

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.https://archive.org/details/mkb2020-09-05
Quote from: VDB on June 28, 2021, 11:31:56 AMOn 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.

Quote from: VDB on June 30, 2021, 07:52:58 AMSusan 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.
