    The Anthem

    And I was at the Hampton, va show in 86 when they busted it back out. Go listen to an audience tape of that show. Still gives me chills to hear the crowd when they see Phil step up to the mic.

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

    But when things go wrong,.. wrong with you,........ That shit hurts me too.

    Please tell me you were sore as shit yesterday. At least that'll make you seem more human. 😂

    The Anthem

    Yeah, that was really something last night. I thought it seemed a good bit more crowded than last year. The floor, about the size of a damn airplane hangar, was full enough to push is to the back wall for dance space. Even that got tight cause our awesome assemblage needed about 3000-5000 sq ft depending on what song was being played. Hey BillK, way to put on a 4.5 hr aroebics clinic... 😅😜🥴 Not many breaks in that show last night but that China doll rendered me danceless and emotional. I think Jeff's ability to deliver the tender vocals and super delicate guitar riffs is as good as it's ever been. The Loser was sublime. Like 6 cowboy songs in that show and they ripped every one of them to shreds. Hopefully the damage to my thighs and calves will be temporary. El Paso smoked! Nice drawn out trans from China cat to rider and the Hes Gone kepts the jams going to all the best places. That second set almost seems continuous in my mind. That was a big ol fat Barn burner chock full of killer songs, glad I got to experience it with some tolerant people that don't care what they or others look like when they dance. Happy to make some new friends and bask in the glow of some old ones. Y'all are an important part of my total experience. Rude is in charge of helicopter rental next year cause DC traffic sucks ass. Our uber driver home was fucking horrible, prob got horns blown at us about 5 times and almost flattened by a surburban. Hahahaha, part of the adventure.

    Norfolk 11/30

    This was a really fun show. I had some trepidation about being here because it's the place I saw my fav show ever last year with the epic 68 recreation. Ie: there was really no way to top what I had seen last year. But it was easy to get my groove on to this unusual set list that really offered something for everybody. The black throated wind was just sublime, Eaton killed it. I love that song. Ramble on, all over now and day job, while somewhat cookie cutter songs we're played in a rippin style and had the crowd getting down. Awesome. The whole second set was killer opening with the HSF just got us all lathered up. Great dance group running into some surprise friends!!!! The upper balcony was pretty open. Pretty nice venue overall. Good sized crowd, seemed full but not over packed. Good Northern Lights IPA from Charlottesville on tap for 16oz at fucking $8, fuck.i was sooooooooo jacked for that Low Spark, and to be teased, fuck.. haha it was fucking awesome. The hey jude that ensued was outstanding with barraco Killin the keys. Good to see everybody and have a great sweaty dance party, that's why I come.

    Touch Heads

    What should we call the roughly 8500 new DSO fans that showed up at red rocks, assuming the other roughly 1500 would've gone to Boulder theater if they were playing there? RockHeads? I thought they were all cool and really added to the experience. 🤣 The Touch heads catapulted the GD into the highest grossing touring band machine in the world. Prob contributed to Jer's inability to kick heroin. Brought a lot of attention psycadelic hippie culture. The scene was growing rapidly by the mid 80s. Touch success accelerated what prob would've happened anyway. The 80s were starving for something cool, anything cool. I preferred the somewhat smaller older crowd of the preTouch era despite me being the young newcomer, but it was all fun. And I mean ALL fun.
