bizarre spat of plague-infected prairie dogs

Recommended Posts

Phish  is normally a bit over the top but this situation is somewhat far out. Both camping and vending at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park have been cancelled for Phish’s  Labor Day weekend in Colorado due to  bizarre spat of plague-infected prairie dogs. Mayor Sean Ford says, There is concern that the grounds are over run by fleas spreading the plague. adding that “Shakedown Alley” will not be happening either.

At Black Mountain’s  Super 8,  late at night after the DSO show I saw a very fat beaver down by the creek eating the grass like he had the munchies. He was not scratching for fleas so I think our environment is safe from the plague.

Peace and Love,

Doc

The resemblance is uncanny:

Phish had already planned to incorporate this image as a part of their light show:

All kidding aside - I feel bad for Phish fans on this one.  It seems the municipality waited a bit too long to make this call so now there is a mad scramble for accommodations.

So I was chatting today about this and my assistant asks “are you joking around?”. Well evidently there is a “House” episode where a woman has been out west and contracted the plague from a dog bc fleas can’t tell the diff between dogs and prairie dogs she had just watched the other night from 2007. Ha!

      A song that for me totally embodies the relationship between two incredible talents that speak to one another thru their instruments. They both really shine in this one. Heard Jeff do it last year, I think Atlanta, and he fucking killed it.  Makes me emotional to hear Jerry sing it during this era. He was awesome.

      I did both those jgb merriweather shows, alpine and poplar creek. Horn hat AKG 460's > dbx224(battery converted) >d5. The dixie at merriweather, the lonesome at Alpine and the let's spend at poplar were choice. Heading to Louisville this weekend for Uli jon roth , closest thing to hendrix I've ever seen. My first deal was when jg opened for fz August 1984 in Chicago. the studio version is a good listen.

      I love this song. I love the record version, and I love how it changed over the years. There were more than a few hot ones in 1983-1984, then while always good, it seems that 1989 brought out extra hot ones again. I love this one with JGB, its a toss up between this one and the Alpine Valley shows from the summer which I like best from that year.

      Has DSO ever played this song? I would love to hear it live
    • The Motorcycle Song -- Arlo Guthrie
      By: goganious · 02/09/2019
      I once bought a kitten and he just kept meowing and meowing. He talked quite a bit. Then I started stringing up my guitar that evening, and he came over and started pawing at the frets, meowing meowing meowing. I looked at this overly talkative creature who was now trying to play his dad's guitar, and the name was obvious at once: Arlo.  12 years later, he still talks a lot. Love Arlo Guthrie. Such a unique and funny personality. Have seen him a few times. He always puts on a great show.
