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!

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.

Quote from: rowjimmy on September 17, 2021, 07:06:30 AMYeah. will would have been my go-to for this thread.
That said, I've dabbled a little. I've built passive switches, made some cables, and done some work on both my own and a friend's guitar.

I'm actually working up to taking my old Dual turntable apart and replacing the output cables because they're wonky and shorting the signal to the ground.

Changing the output cables on my turntables is one of the things that set me on trying to figure this stuff out and getting to know a soldering iron. It started with trying to work around the factory preamp in the AT 120 USB that was my first "real" turntable.

The AT probably won't be "fixed" now that I've moved on to other turntables, but that was the fucker that started it all.

I replaced the bulbs on my MCS 3233 this afternoon. This unit is the main speaker driver in my basement system and has electrical problems that will need to be addressed when I'm further down the learning curve; likely due to aging of components. Sounds good for now. 

The results were underwhelming from a visual "pop" perspective, as I wanted things to be brighter, but successful from a technical perspective as at least the whole unit face is lit now. Also successful from a learning perspective, as the wire soldering techniques I've been practicing for the last few weeks were all put to the test, including adding wire to a connection that was worked on in the past.

The underwhelming part was my error. Instead of waiting for something to come in the mail, I made due with something available locally, and the LED doesn't "fire" in the right direction. Made good and ordered something better, but I'll have to re-do it. At least it's all set up for that swap now.

Have a phono preamp board coming in the mail tomorrow to assemble to practice some more soldering.
