Definitely gonna hit the austin show.
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

Did you hear that, Trey? He's getting annoyed. Enough with the effects already.

Even if I don't buy a ticket, I can hang out in the park across the street and listen to the whole thing. I love the venue they are playing. It's where I saw Trey play an acoustic Ripple on the 10th anniversary of Jerry's passing. I was standing about 10 feet from him when he played it.

Am I the only one who thinks it’s weird to cover another band’s record every night for an entire tour?

I mean unless you’re DSO or something, but just seems like kind of a bad look to turn your established band into a tribute act.

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.

“We settled on Kings, because A) it was the first Rush record I ever heard and B) it contains ‘Cygnus X-1,’ which has always been my favorite Rush tune,” Claypool told Rolling Stone. “It seems to be a good one for us to tackle; 2112 seemed a little obvious.” Primus recently added a cover of “Cygnus X-1” to their sets.

Remember the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory tour? Yeah, I know they added their signature Primus touch to that one, but still. O, and the Animals tour with the Frog Brigade...

Animals. Yes. I loved that show. They absolutely tore it up. Nobody left that show thinking "tribute band."

That Animals tour was AMAZING!!! So glad I got to catch The Frog Brigade on that tour.

Ding Dang is a helluva catchy song.

Indeed. Used it as my ringtone for awhile. Also: great lyrics.
