    This is a thread about Pinball.

    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!

    This is a thread about Pinball.

    I love the look of that Beatles machine. I watched a few videos and the game play is similar to Batman 66, which is one of the best Stern releases in recent years. The only problem with the music themed machines (Aerosmith, Metallica, Iron Maiden and likely this one) is that they only contain a half dozen or so songs, all the hits, from your favorite band and within a few dozen plays you will come to loathe those once enjoyable melodies. As for this one below, cool theme - crappy game. This is based on the Pabst Can Crusher from a few years ago that bored me to tears after only a few games. Smaller playfield, 3/4 flippers, no ramps. It is basically just eye candy to anyone who plays a bit of the silver ball.

    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?
  7. 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!
  9. 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!
