  1. Link to the audio from yesterday’s Yonder show. Ben’s words about Jeff are at the end of “High on a Hilltop”: https://archive.org/details/ymsb2019-06-22.koto.org.128kbps.digihoarders
  2. Yonder played the main stage at Telluride yesterday. They played “Half Moon Rising,” which was the first song on their first album and went out of rotation when Jeff left the band. Here’s what a tearful Ben Kaufmann said when introducing it:
  3. Now there’s a post attributed to him on his official FB page saying he has to cancel upcoming tour dates because of a “medical emergency.” Whatever’s going on, it’s not good.
  4. Lots of rumours flying around this morning that Jeff Austin, former mandolin player and frontman of Yonder Mountain String Band, took his own life last night. No confirmation either way at this point, but the longer his camp is silent, the worse it looks. Sending thoughts to everyone close to him. Edit: I changed the title of the thread to reflect that he has not passed away.
  5. Just noticing that Galactic is playing tomorrow night (Saturday, 6/22). Not sure how I missed that initially, but I may make a trip down for that.
  6. Bummed to be missing this. Especially after driving to Toronto for the cancelled show a few years ago and not being able to make the rescheduled date. Anyway, have fun team. I’ll be playing along from home. Velvet can have my drink tickets.
  7. Letterman will be on WTF tomorrow. Really looking forward to it.
  8. That’s fantastic, and Billy is a hell of a player to boot. I’ve seen him a few times opening up for Greensky.

  11. Also there’s a Paul McCartney tribute act this year, which mystifies me. Will he play only post-Beatles material? Will he play Beatles material but with a non-Beatles themed backing band? Did they only have the budget for 1/4 of a Beatles tribute? All actual questions that I have. Edit: I Googled it. The guy aims to recreate a Paul McCartney show, playing solo and Wings material as well as Beatles tunes. So there’s that.
  12. It’s a Wednesday to Saturday, evening start on the weeknights, late afternoon start on the Saturday. Single day tickets are fifty bucks (!), full passes are ninety-five. I remain confused by the viability of this, but as I said before, God bless ‘em. https://nostalgiafestival.ca/
  13. I was in a back-and-forth about this very topic on Twitter. I’m calling $350 plus camping fees as the cheapest option, up to a bajillion dollars for super magical endangered tiger VIP packages. Some people were using the Phish Watkins prices as a guideline, but I don’t think this will be comparable in that regard.
  14. True enough. I would be pretty happy - thrilled, even! - to be able to ride my bike to this festival after work every night. Lots of good stuff on here, but not enough to tempt me to make the trek. Also, as a three-day festival lineup it seems a little cobbled together and uneven, but then again so do I.
  15. 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.
  16. The Roots will also be at Jazzfest, I think.
  17. 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.
  18. Anyone have any other rumours or speculation?
  19. 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).
