  1. No photos allowed! I'm personally fine with this policy. Just be there folks. Although I do appreciate looking back on others sweet photos. I'd say for the most part though if you are in the audience, I don't really want to have the show obstructed by your phone screen. What do the rest of you guys think? I'm usually so into a show that I wouldn't remember to take photos even if I wanted to. Any rate...Bob expressed his discontent https://www.msn.com/en-ca/entertainment/celebrity/bob-dylan-is-not-a-fan-of-you-taking-his-photo-onstage/ar-BBW38kT?ocid=spartandhp
  2. There is a new documentary in the works involving all kinds of folks we know and love https://www.jambase.com/article/col-bruce-hampton-documentary
  3. Absolutely! My son is choked but we shall see how things pan out. It seems the stats suggest that a heart valve replacement is pretty routine but nothing to sneeze at in my books! I hope he gets healthy enough to get one more tour in esp ecially because anything I've read suggests that's where he wants to be.
  4. True true. There's so much good stuff to be had this summer.
  5. Latest article I've seen since his latest health challenges: https://www.heraldtribune.com/news/20190324/dickey-betts-on-allman-brothers-50th-anniversary-and-new-allman-betts-band
  6. Caught JRAD at Cleveland's Masonic Temple this past weekend. Lucky enough to be second from the rail and right in their glorious pocket. Russo just blows my mind every time and it was such a pleasure to watch him do his other-worldly thing from up close. An incredible setlist and an interesting venue. Couldn't help but wonder what kind of shit went down there in the past. Many launch-pad moments into the ether. These guys don't let up. Can't wait to see them again this summer at Peach! Set 1: St. Stephen Playing in the Band Crazy Fingers Cosmic Charlie Scarlet Begonias I Know you Rider Set 2: Shakedown Street I Need a Miracle Cryptical Envelopment Eyes of the World The Other One Cryptical Envelopment Dancin' in the Streets Encore: Look Out Cleveland (The Band) One More Saturday Night
  7. I appreciate they are doing this but this won't get me to battle the crowds. Cool though!
  8. Edit to add his revised comment was "mom, I don't know, I just really love this song. Just the feel. But, Lesh wasn't the sharpest singer though was he mom?" Ha. On point
  9. Mega mad love for Father Lesh and I do not take for granted the anticipation of seeing him play again this summer at this stage in his life. My 11 year old was telling me today just how much he loves Box of Rain. I explained the origins of the song to him. I'm always taken aback by what sticks with him. Ha. The things that bring us pride...
  10. God dang....why oh why does this have to conflict with Peach Fest? Been a while since they've come to Toronto!
  11. Was super bummed to have missed this!
  12. Well tickets for GA grass (majority of the venue) were changing in real time. Almost bought at $119 a tic but then when checking out they had magically changed to $179 + a ticket. I let those go on principle. Now the lowest GA ticket appears to be sitting at $199. I'm going to take my chances and wait. Parking is almost another $40.
  13. I have to be perfectly honest in saying that I'm not entirely up to speed on what he's been up to most recently in terms of feeling any real level of familiarity with it
  14. I can't believe that this hasn't been posted yet...seems like a cool collab to me Ryan Adams Confirms In-Studio Collaborations With John Mayer And Bob Weir https://liveforlivemusic.com/news/ryan-adams-john-mayer-bob-weir/?fbclid=IwAR049lySpH2TmMbk2Eg-3ovyVaMsdcSv3aIO95rwUtD-jsPZSxkloTKu55A
  15. No way. Still suspicious in my books. Bring back the purple font!
  16. Everyone is working hard to design a system that can get around you two and make it more just for the rest of us.... Shit show for sure. I had verified, but was kicked off twice. Ended up with decent 300s I suppose...was able to pull better 200s after the fact but didn't really want to drop more money. I suspect there will be a tonne of tickets to be had but I may be out of touch...?
  17. I wonder how much of a difference, if at all, there will be? Having said that... just when you think you can't get any higher...
  18. I'm not on social media but my students have been talking about the 10 year challenge craze. I found this to be an interesting read which suggests it may all be (just another) data mining tactic https://nationalpost.com/news/world/the-10-year-challenge-really-really-looks-like-a-data-mining-operation?utm_source=Ryerson+Today+Contacts&utm_campaign=6e50a6affa-20190121&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_4843a7a799-6e50a6affa-53446655
  19. I watched the netflix documentary called "Fyre" on this whole debacle. Just mind-blowing...and a sad window into our world of "influencers" and the industry feeding insatiable longing for exclusivity. Apparently there are actually two documentaries on this shitshow: https://www.cnet.com/news/netflix-or-hulu-which-fyre-festival-documentary-you-should-watch/ While they give some passing nods to the Bahamian workers who slaved for months and went unpaid, I don't think they begin to do justice to the social and ecological exploitation and implications of this entire mess, or that likely would have gone entirely ignored if this had even remotely panned out as planned for those who were in attendance. While I've thought about it many times before, it really made me think again about my own festival-going patterns of consumption...so much to be grateful for, and also so much more that we need to do better on in terms of raising levels of consciousness about the footprint of our mystical musical ventures.
