    Never lost power, thank goodness!! Impressed. Wind was totally nuts. The lane had well over a metre of snow, but it got cleared yesterday and i went to the grocery store today!! Velvet was/ is visiting his mom in FL and hasn't been able to get home. He would love to be here logging about the storm!

    This is a great piece discussing how Derek and TAB have been channeling life into their latest music: https://www.houstonchronicle.com/entertainment/music/article/Tedeschi-Trucks-turns-sadness-into-hopeful-14803313.php?fbclid=IwAR1jjlt521OicYCRygXbqgSs5YiP0VWD5nSiioKBqxG2ym6cQx84fllb1ZM

    Heavy news. As integral a part of The Grateful Dead as any non-performer in the history of music perhaps. RIP. "And it's just a box of rain / I don't know who put it there / Believe it if you need it / Or leave it if you dare And it's just a box of rain / Or a ribbon for your hair / Such a long long time to be gone / And a short time to be there"

    But then he has Jeff Tweedy onstage doing a Pogues song, so we are all good? Right?

    Hmmm....well all true that is certainly not how I would boil down my peach experience Fourth year in a row...thought it was my fifth but I think I'm losing count. 😜 The vibe of this festival is one of the best in my opinion. Magical shining people everywhere. You sure do have to work hard and arrive early to get a good set up (in the trees on less sloped, less rocky land) but so well worth it. They continuously put out one of the best lines ups of the year every year...the water park is a huge plus and a hydrating salvation. Yoga in the mornings to work out all that muscle soreness. I also splurge for a massage from the healing tent on most days...some talented intuitive individuals in there. Our first rain free weekend which made things so much easier...cleaner I generally make my own breakfast/lunch. My favourite vendor is Asian Sensation....their dumplings and spicy Korean chicken bowl are superb. Thursday night we kicked things off with Aqueous (surpassed my expectations...great set...I'd seen them before...appear to be gaining depth and are on the rise). This was followed by Billy effin Strings....he just rips on that acoustic. I hope he maintains the stamina and lifestyle to entertain us into old age. Caught a set of Pigeons Playing Ping Pong...they're great fun, lots of energy...I eventually get bored but good. Opted not to catch their late night set that night but mostly to pace myself. String Cheese!!! They came out swinging. Thursday was their first of three sets that weekend and every single one was a festival highlight. They just have a little bit of everything that I love. Friday yoga, followed by Infamous Stringdusters (solid, enjoyable set....hard to top seeing them at Nelson Ledges and dancing in the soft sand). Unfortunately missed Cory Wong (opted not to climb another hill and back as I wanted to see Blues Traveler). Blues Traveler was fun but I think I enjoyed them more the last time I saw them at vibes. Nevertheless their hits get everyone moving. Moe.....heard so many people expressing indifference towards moe. I don't get it. To me they are still a straight up delightful rock/jam band and I enjoy them every time. Seeing them in a bar is my preference but that's true for most bands. Two more magical sets of String Cheese, followed by the Allman Betts Band. I thought they sounded great! Both the allman covers and originals. Just happy to see that music kept alive. Didn't make it to Saturday yoga...in large thanks to the brahs who decided to plug in and amplify music throughout the hills at like 4 or 5 in the morning or whatever it was. If you're going to do that (and please don't) at least be good...or even mediocre. It was terrible. I heard they got busted by cops on the following night. While I wouldn't wish that on anyone and don't know what they were taken down for, I was pleased this charade was a one time performance. Ended up being a late start by the time I got into the music. I was disappointed to miss both Ghost Light and Stephen Marley....but there was a heavy night in store. Lettuce>Greensky Bluegrass>double dose of TAB> followed by JRAD. I couldn't have been more blissed out. TAB was a definite festival topper for me. We had anywhere from a half dozen to 20 Canadians clustered at any one time and I got a huge kick out of watching people get sucked into, energetically lifted, or just plain out puzzled by our 'infectious' swirling energy. I believe we were excellent ambassadors. There's always a few Americans that want to come home with us lol. JRAD's set was also a tonne of fun despite missing their master conductor. I was choked to hear of that very shortly before they were to go on, but congrats to the Russo family. Sunday we packed down....wavered back and forth because it is the last thing you feel like doing on day 4....almost stayed another night but was really glad to have a clean bed, shower and hotel to go to at the end of the night. As a result of the pack down and slow moving haze we were in we missed Yonder which was a shame. Caught the end of the Inaugural Guitar pull and had the pleasure of becoming acquainted with Stanley Jordan. What a tasteful talented player. Next up was Marcus King Band. This is my third time seeing him this year and he was cookin' as usual. Truly one of the greatest vocalists of all time in my opinion. I ended up missing most of Warren and Grace but really needed a massage and a swim to straighten things out. Made it back in time for good ole' Phil and Friends including Warren, Scofield, Graeme Lesh, Holly Bowling and John Molo. Once they got warmed up they put on a great show. Scofield is still a monster. An absolute privilege to still be able to see Phil do his thing and play with such improvisational mastery at his age. I had the best company one could ever ask for and reflected on that many many times throughout the weekend and how delicate life is and how lucky I have been. Heart is full of love and I always have renewed hope about this messed up world when I immerse myself in this freaky free flowing crowd. And....back to reality...aches and pains and things to do, but never the same. I just try and carry a little bit of that magic through the rat race until next time.

    It is the anniversary of 05-08-77

    You know what really grinds my gears? When this lumberjack mother fucker who would probably be happier in the woods shooting bears, or fishing in some secluded northern Quebec cabin, decides that he isnt going to go off with an insanely hate-fueled rant about his ex or whatever it is he is singing about. Does anyone else remember feelings? Where the fuck did they go and why cant I listen to and watch Brent Mydland piss all over whoever or whatever he wants to piss on? Is this the reason why we have yet to see the infamous piss tapes via the orange buffoon from hell? WTF? Get your shit together people. Brent Mydland is supposed to show and tell everyone his emotions like it is Kindergarten on steroids. Surely we can see, a little bit, but where is the rest of the story? Is he gas lighting anyone who chooses to watch that video? I fuckingly hope not or else I am going to start calling him on his cheezewhiz filled keyboard sounds. What are you doing bahd? Do you really think some of that shit hits? I gots a speedball on my Floridian property waiting for you if that is the case. We were at the show and he purposely took away the one thing that would take away the pain. Brent shook his head at the end to signal the rest of the band he wasnt willing to take shit to the next level with pure evil because he got fucked around and then he died 10 days later which I had to find out from a gaggle of women we hung out with back in the day. Sitting around a backyard pool drinking beers and smoking hash. Welcome to the party bitch. And that is what really grinds my gears.

    I've seen that 'conductor' guy (shaggy hair, front row centre) in another webcast recently..I think it was Terrapin X-Roads show. Into it.

    Vibes, Hope & Grateful Nods

    Just thought it might be worth channeling some energy towards the musicians who inspire us who are fighting for their recovery or who have lost that battle. Recognition, acknowledgement, whatever seems fit I suppose. I hope the extent of the impact somehow remains minimal.... RIP Ellis Marsalis, New Orleans Jazz Piano Legend, (father of Branford and Wynton) https://www.nola.com/entertainment_life/music/article_bbdaf4c4-7481-11ea-92ae-1758b23c65c8.html?fbclid=IwAR1DkKnn0VXAGl7RFJm5uxn2VcvG_Mh1TJgKFPoKny9MKQvh1NWY92gfjhQ

    Ottawa People!?!

    Yep, I get you. Plus, I'll take all the posts anyone cares to make! Sorry I can't be of any help though. But yeah, as bouche said Irene's is great and I think they do have an open mic night but I don't know which night that is. In other news, it appears that I picked the right year to move to a remote island and stop going to concerts!

    Neil Young on latest Conan podcast

    Looking forward to that one! Just finished the very entertaining Zach episode. Listened to the letterman one while doing yardwork. That was a freaking fantastic discussion. I do wish many of them ran much longer. A 45 minute podcast comes out to only about 25 minutes of discussion with all the sponsor and post-show padding. The Deep Dives with Dana Carvey were pretty hilarious. I enjoyed Dana Carvey for the first time in a long time. I thought I listened to the entire run of season 1, but looking back at the guests, I think I may have missed some epics. also looking forward to watching his remote in Ghana.
