    I don’t want to know the show!

    I don’t think they’re selling out.They never have, and never will. Like it or not DSO is an LLC, and they have people that make decisions like the ones you refer to based on a marketing business model. They have to appeal to a more widespread audience, and not just to us hardcore Starheads The days of us seeing them with a couple hundred like minded people are long gone. I’m sure they aren’t doing this on a whim.They’ve done their research. I’m just happy that we still have them, in any way, shape, or form. Time is a stripper. Peace sister.

    NYE 2018-19 Monclair

    If my memory serves me correctly they did a New Years show at the Welmount. There are plenty of great restaurants in Montclair, including Cuban Pete's right around the corner where alot of folks go pre-show. As far as hotels go there aren't any within walking distance. You may want to Airbnb it, but be aware Montclair is an affluent town so it's going to be pricey. If not you can get a good deal on the airport hotels at EWR. Probably a 20 dollar UBER from there. Welcome to the playground. Peace.

    Atlantic City

    I spent many a summer in Ocean City also, up until 3 years ago.18th and Haven. Actually saw my first DSO show there in 2002 at the Music Pier. And Rick that weekend at the Marsh/ Bayside for Dark Star was one for the ages. Unforgettable. We were so much older then were younger than that now. Congratulations on your news I received!

    Carmel By the Sea

    I don't think they've done that since the band Terrapin Nation we used to know. And yes, he kills it. Who sings Masters Of War? If I had to guess it would be Lisa, but not sure. Haven't caught that one yet.

Hope you had fun Tea, but I''ll pass. Turned down a free ticket for the pit this upcoming weekend at Citi Field. Thanks, but no thanks. Peace.

    Jubilee 2018

    I had Disco Pizza, I thought it was ok. Michelle is a really nice person. IMO it is no comparison to the pizza up here, not even close. But if you're in NC, or SC, I'm sure it hits the spot. I spend a lot of time down there (coast) and have yet to find a decent pizzeria.

    My first dead$co show

    We got rained out for the 2nd set at Governors Island one year (2009?)and that was because the authorities had to get everyone on the boats, before they couldn't run anymore. A few years ago we were in Pa. and there was basically a monsoon, DSO didn't cut the show short by a minute. I also recall a show in Buffalo on the water in which it rained hard throughout the show, and they didn't skip a beat even when Mattson was getting drenched.No lightning at either, which makes all the difference.

    Red Rocks 2018

    Little Boy Blue loves that band. He had me listening to a bunch of songs while in his car one day going to a show. The only one I remember is about a dog named Fluffy.

    You should never pick fights with girls especially one with a DSO Masters degree. Because, that’s right, the women are smarter. That’s right.

    College hoops

    I liked Virginia before Hunter went down for the tourney. It's going to be tough to overcome losing the 6th man of the year, and really their only bonafide NBA player. They lacked depth before he got hurt, now they have to play a strict seven man rotation. Very difficult to do in this tourney. For that reason I'm out on Va.
