    I've been hunting my house looking for my old Slip cds and the search was fruitless. Then as fate would have it, Cleantone recently upped a Dropbox filled to the brim with old, and newer, and older Slip recordings:

    Great stuff. I know I had this as filler on a different Dylan show on VHS in the early/mid nineties and I've only saw the DVD circulating once, years ago - titled "Silver Wilburys" I believe, not sure why that name was used. It got taken down from a semi-private Dylan tracker (now long gone). IIRC, they removed it due to the poor quality of the DVD authoring.  The video isn't great, but considering its sourced from VHS, and an on the fly recording for an unannounced Dylan/Harrison/Forgerty performance in 1987? Still pretty cool.
    This was first time Forgerty had played any CCR songs in 20+ years, at Dylan's request.

    1987 - George harrison with Dylan Jon Fogerthy, Jesse Ed Davis and Taj Mahal.   Rough capture but very cool to explore.

    I've since been to Ottawa and enjoyed House of Targ. The only issue I had is that many of the machines were in need of fixes. I know how tough it is to keep mine maintained and I'm not putting 1000's of plays on each week so I sympathize but I'm turning into a jaded vet on the scene.
     
    And my dream is slowly coming true, I'm up to 7 machines now!

    It was very dark in the accessible porta-potty.  So I'm not sure that it counts.

    Hey everyone. Hope you all had a great summer!
    Still kickin' it here in the Hammer.
    Bruno Mars was amazing last Sunday.
    I had a quick peek on the first couple pages here, but didn't see anything posted about the Cyro Baptista / Kevin Breit / John Zorn coming up in Toronto.
    Not sure how advertised it is, so figured I'd post it here. Tickets are $35 - $85. Still available.
    Show details:

    Awesome show by the Turtles last night at the Danforth, it had been way to long. Great three part harmonies and good gawd does the fiddle player shred that thing. An excellent evening all around. 
    Hilarious tweet by the turtles today; 
    Very excited to play @CityFolkFest in Ottawa today. Tainted slightly by the sadness of playing at the same time as David Byrne. Honestly, if any of you come to our show while that is taking place you should really take a long look at your life choices

    We arrived Wednesday with a trunk full of way, way too many beers (after getting our whiskey and Mudslide illegally confiscated) and set up in Glen Close.  Met people and partied like crazy and saw Saturn (rings and everything!  Dude camped nearby had an awesome telescope and even awesomer knowledge of the planets).  Got up on Thursday and showered (in retrospect: ick) and did some more hanging out until mid-afternoon when lo, jaybone arrives with his lovely lady and set up camp right next to us, and then Stapes arrived shortly afterwards (we had pre-set up his tent next to ours).  And then the news hit.  People were scrambling to confirm that it wasn't some sort of prank and then I guess the Bunny announced it.  The couple camped next to us were in tears.  They started packing up almost right away (though in the end they did stay for the night).
    A lot of people left.  I'd say about half of the people that had made it to Glen Close packed up by nightfall.  
    Of course rumours of the band playing a couple of sets for the people that stayed behind started going around, and the next thing you knew they started tearing down the speaker columns.  Rumour: crushed.  I bet that got a few more people on their way.
    We had about 175 beers in the car so we had a lot of drinking to do.  We pounded and pounded, went to hang with the crew in general camping and pounded some more.  Good thing the hard liquor had already been taken care of (by the security staff and their buddies, no doubt).  Overall the mood among those that stayed for the night seemed to be "what the heck, let's have a great time tonight."  It wasn't over-the-top at all, just people hanging out and having a good time.  
    Thank goodness it wasn't raining when we packed up in the morning.  And it was nice that there was no security going around trying to hurry people up (we were supposed to be out by noon).  Really, there was a bare-bones staff on hand; hardly anyone at all.  phorbesie asked the concierge where she could get some drinking water and was told to "just maybe ask around at people's campsites. Someone will give you some."  
    (We're talking the concierge in a VIP section.)
    I counted our remaining booty: 133 beers.  We needed a contingency plan.  We got offsite around 12:15 (easy-peasy though again, almost staff-less) and drove in to town.  We met some friends for lunch and went back to their hotel room.  They couldn't get their room refunded so they decided to stay until Monday.  They offered us floorspace but it was pretty crowded in there already.  Luckily an excellent Plan B presented itself and phorbesie, Stapes and I drove to Penn Yan and stayed at Bdunn's Godfather's super-great cottage on the lake for the weekend. The whole crew was there, we sucked it up and put on our happy faces and had a wicked-great weekend.
    When I got up on Sunday I was shocked to discover that we had more that met our beer-consumption quota (phorbesie was even able to grab an extra 15-pack before we cruised the border).  We stayed until about 2pm and then it was hugs all-around and the three of us drove north, leaving the rest of the crew to try and enjoy a final night at the cottage without us.
