    Everyone gets a turn, I’ll start...

    Just ridin' and runnin' across those desert saAAANDS! I always thought that "runnin' and gunnin'" would have had more of an edge to it

    The Anthem

    THANK YOU Hardpan! I love live music, and then listening to it again and again, year after year. Well done!

    The Anthem

    I've known this, for years and years, but it really it home Saturday at the Anthem. DSO, no matter how they play on a given night (and it usually goes quite swimmingly), really just plain NAILS the sound, arrangements, and feel of the songs from whatever era it is diving into. As an old cassette collector, I might appreciate that as much or maybe even more than how well they play. Musically, it was 1973 at the Anthem. Random notes: 5 beat BIODTL. Nobody's Fault and Other One teases in the Truckin jam, Lisa sounded amazing on China Doll, great transition right into Me & My Uncle right from Loser, and Rider had that perfect early 70's tempo and perfectly pleasant jam in it. I was very happy with the filler tune - thank you Rob B - because it's my 15 year old daughter's favorite GD song, or at least 2nd behind Scarlet, maybe, and after the show announcement I say to her, "Ok here comes the Mr. Charlie, nyuk nyuk" in my most dad voice ever. And then the Charlie drops.. and the smiles ensue. If anyone's got audience recordings, drop em on the archive, etree, or just lemme know where to get em! Peace!

    Cleveland HOB 10/11/18 setlist

    Dear Prudence was sublime. Shakedown fantastic as always. End of the Playin proper had a jam that reminded me of Who Was John. And wasn't Skip playing both Whole Lotta Love and Paranoid during space??. Crazy. And a That's What Love encore to top it all off.

    Rochester 8/3/18

    Ok so far.. Alabama Bucket West LA Memphis Blues Lazy River Road Esau Blow Away Ramble On Sunrise Music BTW a train was fittingly rolling past the field during Lazy River Road. Couldn't tell if the boxcars we're bright blue. Lisa joined the show after Blow Away. And Music was killer. Set 2 China Cat > Rider She Belongs To Me Lost Sailor > Saint of Circumstance > Drumz > ... Great transition into Rider. Loved the She Belongs To Me. No Lisa in set 2 yet. Oh there was a nice little glow sticks extravaganza in the stands after Rider. In space just now I think we had Dazed and Confused teases... Post-space to come... Drove back to Buffalo and hit the hay before I could finish the post.. Dear Mr. Fantasy > Throwing Stones > World To Give > Saturday Night E: Mr. Charlie C'est La Vie (You Never Can Tell) Lisa returned for Saturday Night (which everyone was dancing at the local skating rink) and the rest. Really good, slightly slower, Mr. Fantasy. And were there Dazed & Confused teases by Skip/others in Space?? At least that's what *I* heard. Great time at the local baseball field today. Crowd was sparse up until 20 minutes to go then it seemed to explode and really fill in. *Sigh* Now I can't wait for the October OH/PA shows!!

    Buffalo 8/2/18

    So far, if I haven't missed anything: Jack Straw Dupree's (apparently not the Stagger Lee that I originally wrote down lol) Me & My Uncle > Mystery Train Black-Throated Wind Tom Thumb Blues Loose Lucy Passenger Bird Song > Watchtower > Bird Song Notes: After Mystery Train, Barraco tells us this set for us & in the key of E. During Tom Thumb, Skip "started out on Prilosec" and he was going back to Cheecktowaga" I thought Mystery Train and the Watchtower had that extra something. Smooth transition into Train. Very tasty. Set 2 coming up shortly. Woot! Set 2 so far Eyes > Corrina > Till The Morning Comes > Truckin > Drumz > .... Great Eyes and Truckin (up to Buffalo). Truckin had a hard hitting stop/start sorta jam after the big crescendo that I don't think I've EVER heard before. And now the drummers are pounding us into submission. Gotta get back to it! Drumz > Jeff Solo > Space > Miracle > China Doll > GDTRFB E: Viola Lee Blues Awesome Jeff and kinda Close Encounters-ish. The group space was pretty short. Miracle was nice and gnarly. GDTRFB hit on all cylinders. Viola had a rather unusual and purposeful mid-tempo jam before gradually accelerating to warp speed. So great to see this band keeping things fresh, throwing in new wrinkles after all these years. That's why I keep coming. Canalside BTW was a GREAT place to see a show. Loved the video screens, the vendors, the old WWII boats, everything. The sound was top notch tonight too. Can't wait until tomorrow at the ball field.

    Jubilee 2018

    Disco was real good. Huge pieces of fresh oregano on that. Forgot to mention originally.. where was the Sugaree? By night 3 I thought I had at least one guarantee on Set List Lotto.

    Jubilee 2018

    Twas a great weekend, and I finally have a chance to port forth a few thoughts, in no particular order. Saturday (5/26) was GREAT music all day. Yes everyday was great, but Saturday was GREAT. Dino's Quintet and Holly Bowling were fantastic. They had a high-class vibe going on that made me drink my beer with pinky fully extended. That was one rough storm, also on Saturday, but we pulled through. Many canopies were turned into twisted metal, and some tents became kites, but everybody kept on keeping on. The Amazing Giants and the Joyful Bubbles are great side entertainment for families and well, everyone, really. Keep bringing 'em back! Those were some of the cleanest Port-o-pottys I've ever seen. Well done! Only at the end were they even the slightest bit rank. Except for Potty #2 by the GA showers that was, well, Number Two'd on top of the seat midday on Saturday, but by evening it was in tip top shape. Thank you to whomever is in charge of keeping those things clean. And to the person who layethed down the evil deed, shame!! Melvin & DSO is one potent combo. Tore Up might have been my favorite song of the whole weekend. Stage banter was hilarious. Good audience recordings are available on archive.org (thanks Toaste!) as well as a matrix of Holly Bowling. What happened to the cold nights of Jubilee '13? I've been sweating my spheres off every year since. Back in '13 I actually wore my winter coat to Night 3... It's weird, but it seems like every Sunday morning, when they're about to do the Kids Parade, the weather is perfect, maybe a little warm like I just mentioned, but the sky is blue, the sun is out, and there's absolutely no rain. Every Sunday morning at the Jubilee looks like every other Sunday morning at the Jubilee. Just beautiful. And if it's the kids that are good luck, then maybe we could have them parade around all weekend long because storms just suck. Oh, and that was one long parade. From the stage all the way thru GA, that I saw. Awesome! I'm buying the SBDs when they come out, always do, but could we also get the other DSO collaborative ensembles?? Dino's group, Mattson/friends, California Kind, and Melvin & five sevenths of DSO were all great and I'd love to hear those boards. Guess that's all I got. GREAT Jubilee '18. It's almost been a week and the memories are so vivid that it still feels like I just left Legend Valley. See ya next year!

    Jubilee 2018 Roll Call

    We usually arrive around 1:00-1:30 and there is already a huge line, which is to be expected. And by the time we get through the snake of cars, camping space in the bowl is very hard to come by. Do they open the doors at noon, or a sometime before (so they don't have as huge of a mess/line of traffic)? It just seems like a lot of people to be already inside by the time we get down in there. When do people start arriving, like 11:00, 10:00, or even 9:00? and do they immediately go into the Snake?

    Your 2017

    Way to go Rude. Congrats on your epic year! Your 37 beats my personal best of 34 in 2001. We had kids in 2002, so those days are long gone lol. Those days being the days where work was the only thing restricting my show-going. These days it's about 8 per year, which I'm happy with and it keeps me going, but if only I could get it to 20 or so! Ahhh a man can dream

    Red Rocks 2018!!

    In the words of Keanu, "whoa!" This is major. Our little band has grown up lol and is headed to Red Rocks. I've always wanted to see a show at Red Rocks, and now I have THE show to see at Red Rocks. Incredible!

    DSO video compilation 1999-2005

    I saw 4 Chopper gigs (who hailed from St. Louis, right?) back in early 2000. The dude had some serious energy. And whipped up the crowd with it. BTW the "Lost DSO fan" at about the 28 minute mark is a buddy of mine. No that's not his burnt out van lol. We just thought we'd use it as a prop while we killed time between shows on the Easter 2001 run.

    DSO video compilation 1999-2005

    So I posted something to check out just before the 20th anniversary show coming up on 11/11. Video clips of a lot of shows from the 1999-2005 era. About 3 hours worth. Let me know what you think, and enjoy folks! See ya in Albany

    Bizarro thread: Dead song you do not really like

    There aren't that many. Candyman and slow FOTDs come to mind. And Must Have Been The Roses. I am BIG FAN of the Jerry ballads, which makes my least fav dead tunes all the Stranger (pun intended). I guess those three I mentioned are just the lowest rungs on the ladder, so to speak.
