  1. When I saw the Bluesfest lineup I thought I had officially entered my Jazzfest years. But now that I see the Jazzfest lineup I feel frightened and alone. Hooray for The Roots, at least.
  2. The Roots will also be at Jazzfest, I think.
  3. Nothing on there that really scratches my itches, although enough people have recommended Jason Isbell that I might check him out. Aside from that, I hope a million people go and have all the fun and drink all the beers, but my summer concert money and days off will be spent elsewhere.
  4. Anyone have any other rumours or speculation?
  5. I think last time I snagged a pair of 200s for $25 total, or thereabouts. I seem to recall having the pick of the pavilion for that price, aside from the pit. Granted this was PBD (Pre-Baker’s Dozen).
  6. Toronto is the only realistic show for me and I didn’t even bother with PTBM or the onsale date. Last time there were tons of great tickets floating around for wicked cheap (although, yeah, ultimately I drove from Ottawa to Toronto to hug three people in a parking lot and then not see a concert) so I didn’t feel compelled to make a mad dash at onsale. And if I get burned because of it, well then hooray that so many people are enjoying this band again!
  7. Greensky Bluegrass is doing a free webcast of their show in St. Louis tonight (Friday, 1/18) and I think that Circles Around the Sun's opening set will be part of it. Do it up: http://nugs.tv/free/?showID=21.
  8. My pleasure. FYI I think Circles Around the Sun's opening set will be part of the broadcast. Yeehaw!
  9. Just said this in an e-mail, about the shows I saw: Really engaging stuff. And a little more restrained and deliberate than what is often seen with psychedelic bands. I zeroed in on the bass player more than any of the other players, which is unusual for me, but he was great. Creeping all over the fretboard but not in a wanking kind of way, while continually coming back to the main riff to keep everything grounded.
  10. This band will just not stop crushing it. I did a three show run last week: Albany, Philly, and NYC. Wicked fun to hang with edger and c-towns in Albany, the venue in Philly (The Met) was brand new and spectacular, and in NYC they sold out their first ever show at The freakin' Beacon. So great. And in a nod to the ghosts of Beacon past, they encored with Midnight Rider. Classy. Obviously I'm a bit of a gushing fan boy over here, but the skill and intensity of this band is still rising. Their songwriting is spot on, and their jams are increasingly adventurous and go deep into unexpected territory. As I've said before, they're a five-headed, twenty-nine-stringed monster with no sign of slowing down. Their new album All For Money drops today (January 18th), and as a special bonus they're doing a free webcast of their show in St. Louis tonight. Get on it: http://nugs.tv/free/?showID=21.
  11. Saw these guys three times last week opening up for Greensky. Great shows, as expected. Funky and playful but just a little bit dark, almost spooky (technical musical term there), and they are all deadly players. They didn't mix up their short setlist at all over the three shows, but that didn't bother me too much as the songs were hardly formulaic. Bottom line: four heady crystals out of five, would recommend (especially for something longer than an opening set).
  12. See you there! I’ll be at the Beacon on Saturday, too.
  13. Winter tour starts this week, along with a new album! I’ll be at Albany on Thursday (1/10) and the freakin’ Beacon (!!!) on Saturday. So pumped to see them headlining that room, and Circles Around the Sun are openeing both shows, which should be a nice treat.
