    Happy birthday Bouche

    I've listened to this song loudly and often on my birthday about as long as I can remember and it still resonates. Miss seeing your face around, best wishes Mike!

    Ottawa Bluesfest 2018 Official Thread

    Thanks for your thoughts. I saw them in Toronto on Tuesday and had the same feeling walking out that you both relayed here but then I heard from a friend today that thought it was utter garbage at Bluesfest. Just getting a second opinion that I wasn't totally off base or way more drunk than I thought I was. Interestingly, I also spoke with another friend who is a big DMB fan and I asked him about a possible jam of Free by Phish that I swore I heard during the end of Grace is Gone. He confirmed that he was freaking out a bit too. If they did it was super well placed: after speaking about the shitty things happening in the US, then playing a song that seemed to echo his pre-song statement and then reminding us Canadians that we are Free. Totally tin foil hat territory but who knows right?
  3. I just saw them in Toronto and it was incredible. It was clear that each band member (11 piece!!!) was a total master of their instrument. Their cover of The Band's cover of Springsteen's Atlantic City = straight fire.

    Borderland Music Festival - East Aurora NY

    They were on an advance press release I received from a local contact but apparently they couldn't come to terms at the last minute (ie. JRAD probably got a better offer for the same time frame before inking their contract). My bad- sorry folks!
  5. https://borderlandfestival.com/ Revivalists, Dr Dog, Barr Brothers, John Oates, Sam Roberts Band, Fruition, Infamous Stringdusters, Margo Price, Sam Bush Band etc. No camping, ends at 9. If anyone wants a room at the nearby Hampton Inn let me know - I have a pretty good discount arrangement with them.

    Greta Van Fleet is to Led Zeppelin as The Black Crowes were to The Rolling Stones. A damn good thing.

    Thanks Esau. It is great to see a setlist to convince me to work out logistics of staying in the city for one more night to catch this!

    Glen Close was so amazing at Superball, from the distance to the stage, the amenities and the folks around us. It was so close I ran back to camp to grab a bag of beer several times each show, just to have cold ones. After leaving and seeing lots of pictures however, I felt like I'd missed out on some of the fest by being a bit less adventurous due to the location. For Magna I was in the RV section which was great and not a long walk but certainly not as close as Close (!). There really is something to be said about shade and a quiet place to sleep that won't soon be discounted. If I can get commitment for #'s and can get an RV pass (and find an RV to rent) I will definitely be going that route.

    I'm not sure if this was previously announced but on Mar 2nd, Teresa Williams and Larry Campbell are playing The Drake Hotel and the show is now listed as "Teresa Williams and Larry Campbell with Kevin Breit". Pretty cool.
