@  Supplic... : (09 August 2015 - 05:56 PM) Happy Life to All! I danced with you from Hawaii to the senator as Jerry and a Darby Slick appearance playing the "original" white rabbit lyrics (Pepsi and refrigerators....) and so embody to love.... Was the kind of thing that made it ok to not be at Balck Mountain! Lots of dance space, DSO come to Hawaii already!!!! PLEASE!!!!
@  dansforest : (08 August 2015 - 03:15 PM) There are tons of places in downtown black mtn to catch a bite and a pint

@  SaintMa... : (07 August 2015 - 04:13 PM) Where's a good/inexpensive place to eat before Pisgah show? Don't want to drive back to Asheville.
@  SaintMa... : (07 August 2015 - 01:42 PM) Where are you sun1869?
@  sun1869 : (06 August 2015 - 08:17 PM) Need a ride to Black Mountain...someone, please be my Help on the Way
@  Mason... : (05 August 2015 - 03:36 PM) I know you would've had a ride anyways. I also have an idea about where your from.
@  Supplic... : (03 August 2015 - 07:19 PM) Thanks for not playing Let Me Roll It til you come to Hawaii this winter ;) hehe
@  Supplic... : (03 August 2015 - 07:17 PM) Hope Jerry Week is making love burst in all your hearts!!! Glad i bailed, too, but I woulda had a ride, as I am from the silly south and had many offers ;) instead I am eating papayas and enjoying watching the tropical storm roll in... On an island there is protocol for such a situation, something about love in the afternoon!
@  SaintMa... : (03 August 2015 - 01:41 PM) Super stoked for PISGAH shows this weekend.
@  Mason... : (26 July 2015 - 02:32 PM) Good thing supplicated bailed. As I understand it, Help has a full car Atl to Black Mountain.
@  Supplic... : (18 June 2015 - 02:51 PM) Kiss kiss! Hula, being a pantomime kind of dancing, is much like dancing like us Bobby dancers that pantomime every word just like he used to stop playing to hand gesture it out hehe
@  PoetryGirl : (17 June 2015 - 08:39 PM) Steph, grooving in Aloha tonight at Hula class and thought of you
@  Supplic... : (15 June 2015 - 05:19 PM) Day job? The night job pays! I just can't quite get off the island! ;) hehe, lonesome and a longway, just come play w me in Hawaii, all of you!!!!
@  HelpSlip : (12 June 2015 - 04:09 AM) keep that day job Steph and get to Atl/BlkMtn ! i can be yur ride
@  Supplic... : (10 June 2015 - 04:11 PM) It is $100 cheaper to fly into ATL first week of Aug for Blk mtn but damn dudes, it is lotsa $ to fly outta Hawaii! Maybe have a job at kava/Kombucha bar soon...
@  Supplic... : (10 June 2015 - 04:06 PM) Anyone wanna see me bad enough to get me a flight to Richmond from Hilo, HI for Pocahontas and Blk Mtn? Only gotta make it back to Denver..... Hehehe
@  Mason... : (05 June 2015 - 05:54 PM) If I spend my days more productively, I can get a lot more done than I am doing now. Not all are in that same position.
@  Mason... : (05 June 2015 - 05:52 PM) I'm not talking of solely subsistence farming. I'm more talking supplemental farming. Adding to what I'm doing. Not replacing.
@  chuckvegas : (05 June 2015 - 04:58 PM) For an interesting take on subsistence farming check out Talking Heads' "Nothing But Flowers."

I'm too tired to really compose any thoughts here but I will say that last night was my favorite of the four shows so far. Eugene rocked it.

The Palm Sunday breakout on the very day was beautiful. I'm not up to clarity posting from a phone at the airport, but I will say these shows were a reminder of why we do whatever it is we do.

And while I had all the room I needed when I need it in Portland (the dance gods smiled), not everyone was so blessed. Last night offered more room for all who wanted it. The lobby there is very kind.

Don't forget to say hi to Winky!

Was at the original, quite the scene out there in Eugene, was the 10th anniversary of some Ken Kesey-related event which I can't quite seem to remember.
Still remember the Dupree's encore though.
Sure DSO did justice to it all as they always do!

DSO in Eugene is like,,,like,,,,like,,,,,oh I'm too damn spaced to come up with any worthy analogy but the situation kicks some serious ass...

I had a fantastic time throughout this entire show--the playing was top notch all the way through and the band was clearly having a blast...
Was really nice to have plenty of space to dance and groove after the northerly gigs and the cultural shifts between Seattle and Oregon are rather extreme meaning that the further south you go, the looser it gets of course,,,,

What's obvious is that the band is made up of well-honed top notch musicians....what's maybe not obvious is that they are also freaking wizards.....Starting in portland the wizardry element strarted getting pretty heavy and was laid on thick throughout Eugene....I love the undercurrents of wizardry sliding along wildly underneath the incredible music being dished up....impossible to use words but a feeble attempt nonetheless...

The spring cleanse feels VERY complete, even knowing that I will not make it any further south for now. These four shows did the job that I always hope for: clear out the winter and open up into spring....thin out the deadwood for new growth to come in....stir up the soil so that seeds that were silent can burst into bloom

I love this ritual and my gratitude is overflowing....huge thanks, once again, to you DSO for making the magic happen....it's just sooo damn potent and we are all sooo lucky to intertwine together in this way....thank you thank you thank you...

Always such a pleasure to dip into the Oregon beauty....

Without Love in the dream, it'll never come true...

May I add...........If anybody still has any doubts about Jeff, please go listen to this show. Paticularly the Black Peter.
The band was en fuego, and they they just kept going higher and higher all night.

And I really dug the strong Drumz!

And the way they sent us out with Cats Under The Stars was just exactly perfect......
Be free. Have fun.

I too went to the original. Hitchhiked out with a friend cross country from Jersey. What a saga.
Some nice footage showed up on Youtube from this recently:

"You've got an empty cup.... only love can fill"

After the Eugene show, my cup overfloweth!!

This band and this family is truly a blessing...and this weekend we were feeling the love!! DSO is at the top of their game, and this show was the best DSO show I have seen in years. Mattson is so locked in with the band, it's simply glorious. The whole band is just so damn tight! They can turn on a dime. Also, Mattson's 80's guitar work was amazing!!! I mean, I'm ready for an all 80's tour.. it was sooooo fucking good. He's really got all the little 80's guitar phrasings down. Down pat!

And if you hadn't heard- DSO is rocking a new sound board this tour. Consequentially, the sound in Eugen was 10/10. TOP NOTCH!!! I don't know if it was the room/system or the new sound board or both, but Eugene may have offered the fullest, most perfect sound I have ever heard at a DSO show. Everyone there agreed- it was fan-fucking-tastic. The sound truly enabled a peak experience. I have never heard a truckin crescendo like this one. SO FUCKING INTENSE!!!

Highlights: New Minglewood Blues, Far From Me > Playing In The Band, The Wheel > The Other One, Dupree's Diamond Blues, Palm Sunday > Cat's Under The Stars. (playin and o1 were SUPER trippy..."SIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICK" as bix would say)

Thanks so much to the band, the crew, and the family for another one of the best musical weekends of my life.
This folks looks for answers

I completely agree with all that you say jfolks.

I also wanted to say that it was a real pleasure to meet more friendly folk from around these parts--I look forward to more down the line!

Meanwhile, this sack of bones is whipped although my spirit is flying high after an incredible NW run,,,

Gratitude, :) :) :)
