    CityFolk 2018 rumours

    So who’s doing what? I’ll be there Wednesday night for Steve Earle and TTB(!). Unsure beyond that.

    Lotta good attitudes in this thread. The band just announced that all Curveball ticket holders will be able to redeem the code on their wristbands for a free webcast of all three nights of Dicks. They'll also be launching an online store to sell the Curveball gear, with proceeds being donated to flood relief and recovery. http://phish.com/news/an-update-for-curveball-ticket-holders/

    Cancelled on account of unsafe drinking water resulting from flooding. What an absolute bummer. My heart goes out to those of you who were looking forward to it, especially those who planned your summer around it. Here’s hoping people can find something else fun to do with the time away from home / work / etc. Still, brutal. Link: http://phish.com/news/curveball-forced-to-cancel/

    Also JRAD would be perfect for the Black Sheep stage.

    I always would have thought Macca was too big for Bluesfest. But the Foos played to 50,000(ish) people at SkyDome the same week they were at Bluesfest, so clearly it’s capable of handling stadium-sized acts and attendance. Obviously Sir Paul is a bigger draw than Grohl and Company, but given that he doesn’t have a massive stage production, I don’t see why it would be unattainable. Yes, it would be a near-instant sellout, but so what? I suppose the one concern would that be it would overshadow the rest of the festival, but I don’t see that as a major issue. And they could charge whatever they wanted for single day tickets that day, and even have them exempt from full festival passes if they wanted. I realize it’s a long shot, but with the way the festival has gone in the past couple of years (fewer stages and bigger headliners) it seems more doable now than ever. But yeah. Greensky, please.

    So let’s talk dream acts for next year. My top three: Paul McCartney (hey, it could happen) Greensky Bluegrass (would love to see my current favourites in my hometown) Nathaniel Rateliff and the Nightsweats (yeah, they played Cityfolk last year and are hitting the Bronson Centre in the fall, but still. They’d be pefect.)

    I haven't been an active fan since probably 2004, and haven't seen them at all since 2008. Their sound has evolved quite a bit in that time. When Tim Reynolds first came on as a permanent full-time member, he was just screeching over top of things quite a bit, with heavy distortion. He seems to have toned things down in the past few years, and is giving the songs a little more room to breathe. Playing off the horns seems to be working for him. In terms of the horns, no disrespect to Leroi Moore, but Jeff Coffin's jazz chops have added quite a bit to the dynamic, and taken things in a more focused direction in terms of the band's improvisation. I loved watching Reynolds, Coffin, Rashawn Ross (trumpet) and Buddy Strong (keys) bouncing the musical beach ball around over the course of the show. And Carter Beauford is the same monster he's always been behind the kit. It was a really great time, and I think I'll try to see these guys again before another ten years is up. On another note, was anyone else at the Black Sheep Stage for Eat a Peach on Thursday night? What a fun set, with as big a crowd as I think I've ever seen at that stage.
  13. Nice review. I agree it was a perfect storm kind of night: ideal convergence of band, venue, crowd and weather.

    DMB was dope. The horns were super tight, and the new keyboard player (Buddy Strong) pushes things to a different level. And Carter Beauford alone was worth the price of admission. Great times. I have a pass for tonight so I think I’m going to go for Eat a Peach and maybe some of Blue Rodeo.

    So. Effing. Good. Just a legit full-throttle rock and roll show from the get-go. Nice to hear the local shoutouts to Alanis, too. I’d wondered if they were going to say anything.
