  1. Ya mean the three-hundred page ad for Pono? Kidding! Kind of. I did like the book, though. And for some reason I keep it on a shelf in my office surrounded by legal texts. Trying to keep it real, I guess.
  2. Good of you to keep this place up and running. It is not taken for granted. Aloha.
  3. June 21st - 24th at Mooney’s Bay. Headliners are Sam Roberts Band, Broken Social Scene, Wintersleep, and Matt Mays. Pretty stacked lineup as far as these things go. I’ll be at Matt Mays for sure, and maybe one other night as well. http://www.dragonboat.net/news/031918-2018-concert-lineup.aspx
  4. St. Germain has been added! Not sure what kind of show he puts on, but his records are super rad, so hopefully it will be a fun night.
  5. And a killer set at Cityfolk last year. This is a great lineup.
  6. Hell of a way to start a show. This was when their first attempt at playing Red Rocks last year had to get moved indoors on account of weather.
  7. Agreed on both counts, although I’d have rather heard The Maker with Trey than without. Pretty sure I saw him play it with Emmylou Harris once and it was tasty.
  8. Trey sat in for all of set two. I’ve listened to bits and pieces and can’t say it all sounds great, but it’s always fun to see any combination of these three guys making music together. God bless ‘em.
  9. Yeah. So apparently he told that story in a clip that’s already in this thread. Also apparently it was South America, not Australia. Swing and a miss.
  10. You probably know this, but when he asked them to play his first show back after his heart attack they left Australia in the middle of a tour (and cancelled their remaining dates) to fly to New York and play the show.
  11. I say DMB is worth it, even if you’re not a fan. Like c-towns said, Carter is an absolute monster behind the kit. Their sax player is Jeff Coffin, formerly of The Flecktones, who is super good and adds quite a bit. Having said that, I think the band is too big (too many members, not too popular). Having a full time trumpet player in addition to the sax is unnecessary, imo. And while Tim Reynolds is a killer player, I don’t think his electric noodling on every song is the best fit. It can all end up sounding a little cluttered. That said, they’re all solid musicians and even though I haven’t seen them in a decade, I never found myself bored or disappointed at a show.
  12. Just announced their very own Camp Greensky festival for May 31st - June 2nd in Michigan. Hell of a lineup: Greensky Bluegrass x3 Jeff Tweedy Mike Gordon Trampled By Turtles Billy Strings Fruition Rayland Baxter Joshua Davis Chris Jacobs Band
  13. Pretty cool that they’re headlining Red Rocks.
  14. It was out of nowhere. The band had played once in the last year, and then a day or two before their first gig back he quit, saying he needed to take time off the road, be with his family, etc. It was pretty weird how it played out, and there are plenty of nefarious rumours floating around. He was never my favourite part of the band, but I certainly hope it’s nothing too serious.
  15. Such a strong songwriter. Poetic and sparse. Just brilliant. Walking the dog the other night I had Wildflowers in my headphones and loved the way it sounded as the snow crunched under my feet. Also he was 37 when the Wilburys debuted. Wow.
  16. Psyched to see the Foo Fighters finally coming; that should be a fun rock and roll show. And I'll enjoy the nostalgia trip of DMB - hopefully they have a replacement fiddle player by then after Boyd Tinsley's sudden exit a couple weeks ago.
  17. Right on! So glad that you enjoyed it, and it warms me right up to know that I was a small part of it. I saw them in Albany and two nights in NYC last month and they were all great. Albany was a soft seat venue (The Egg, which is worth a trip if you've never been) so they played more of a lyrical, song-focused show, without many long jams. Gotta say, it was a nice change of pace. The NYC shows were both a lot of fun. This band still seems to be getting better, and their fan base is most definitely growing. It's an exciting time to be on the bus.
  18. Pretty sure Tedeschi Trucks will be on July 11th (same night as DMB). Foo Fighters have a bit of a gap in their schedule before a July 12th Toronto date. Macca would be great but personally I don’t see that happening (he said based on nothing in particular), nor do I think them posting a pic of The Beatles was any kind of a hint. Lineup will drop Tuesday, apparently. Looking forward to it!
  19. Looks pretty likely that TTB will be at Bluesfest in Ottawa in July 11th, the same night as DMB.
  20. Brad's origin story. So good. Three years after that date he told the story in a thread of his own. I've bumped it up to the main page.
  21. Much love, Brad. We'll miss you.
