    Electric Factory sold

    New concert promoters have big plans to change the dump we love, including the name, because the name is owned by Live Nation. http://www2.philly.com/philly/entertainment/music/electric-factory-bowery-presents-renamed-20180912.html

    RIP John Perry Barlow

    If you love the song Cassidy, you will want to read, in Barlow's own words, the story behind it http://www.litkicks.com/BarlowOnNeal He was one of the great ones. And I'm sorry we've lost him. But I have the sinking suspicion, he knew when the going was good. This is a list of Barlow lyrics from Whitegum.com I was one of the "lucky ones" who saw "Gentleman Start Your Engines" live, and I always blamed Mydland. I'm going to forgive JPB for that one.

    You buried the lede! Bill Graham is receiving a Trustees Award at the same ceremony.
  4. You all know that Dr. Albert Hoffman discovered LSD. Well, on what would have been his 112 birthday on Jan. 11, Mickey Hart posted a tweet that linked to an article in The Fix about a letter Hoffman wrote to Apple founder Steve Jobs asking him to donate money for research into psychotherapeutic uses for LSD being conducted by the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS). Hoffman wrote the letter at age 101, a year before he died, after learning Jobs had claimed that taking LSD was one of the most important events in his life. If you would like to read the short article and the letter it is here: https://www.thefix.com/content/steve-jobs-acid-lsd-apple-letter7002 The letter does not say whether Jobs honored the request, but in the comment section there is a link to a Huffington Post article in 2011 about a new book in which the letter-story first appeared called "This is Your Country on Drugs: The Secret History of Getting High in America". That article states that the letter prompted Hoffman and Jobs to have a 30-minute phone conversation but there's no evidence Jobs' donated to LSD research. https://www.huffingtonpost.com/ryan-grim/read-the-never-before-pub_b_227887.html#hoffmanjobsletter While searching the MAPS website, I also found this interesting interview with Hoffman done in 1996.Reading that I learned he called LSD "Delysid" (which is now the name of my latest imaginary band, I'm also considering opening a sandwich shop by that name). There are other Hoffman interviews on the website I have yet to read. https://www.maps.org/news-letters/v08n3/08330hof.html

    Drums Space 2017 >

    I always enjoy D>S as a road marker during the concert when you can relax, toke up, take a piss or wig out and sometimes all four. Interesting history of Drums>Space. Plenty of examples of drumming dating to 60s with the author claiming D>S was "institutionalized in 1978. https://deadessays.blogspot.com/2017/03/drums-and-space-guest-post.html

    Cupping ears works big time for me and been doing it for years. You can make it directional too to pick up more guitar for example. Also opening your mouth seems to open up those aural pathways for more sound. I look like a fiend but wtf, I am. Sorry to miss PP this year, first time in many and was unavoidable. Hornsby is going to be there in Sept. if anyone is interested.

    after the fire alarm (which I think caused by incense and not weed) there was a green sleeves jam then the jazzy jam before Expressway. Up to the fire alarm I thought it was a GD show and Expressway was an audible that took the show off the rails. But I guess it was band's choice show all along. I agree with Delicate Flower that with the exception of few tunes it was close to a 1988. this was not really a dance party show, because the tempo was up and down. But when I look back on the selection of songs and the level of playing, I sure have no complaints. In addition to the whole third quarter China>Rider>Crazy Fingers>Box> Highlights were Expressway, Dixie Down (when Lisa made first appearance), Strange Man (had never heard this..Lisa built it to a great crescendo and crowd was appreciative), Might as Well (cause that's just a great set end burner); and Visions (which coincidentally I had listened to 3 versions of this week Dylan 66; and the 3/18/95 Spectrum which I saw and 2/21/95 Salt Lake show). Jeff did it justice. Also special mention for I don't need Love. Not my favorite but RB did a great version. Salute to the beautiful venue. Security could not have been chiller and was suprised they allowed vending out front. Also fun to see the bluegrass band playing in lobby before the show.

    Penn's Peak!

    those hoping for a 80s dance party (and who doesn't love those) might have been disappointed. But anyone into the greasy old blues stuff was in orbit. I loved it. Hurts Me Too> He's Gone > Good Lovin' was an intensely emotional jam for me on several personal levels, which you could read on my blog if I had one.... And fourth quarter Lovelight >>>>>> on was fantastic. ... . Somewhere in there, start of second set ???? was an "I'm a Little Teapot" Jam... which I killed on the dance floor with the spigot > handle pour...... DOS at the Peak is guaranteed good time.
