  1. I listened on my ipod tonight walking the dog around the neighbourhood ... i'm definitely a fan of this album. I'm glad I didn't listen to it on my laptop at the office first ...
  2. what a great event ... can't wait for the next one!
  3. The Wellington Street Theatre and the Kingston Folk Club are very proud to present the Jon McLurg CD Release Concert at the Wellington Street Theatre (126 Wellington Street, Kingston) on Friday, September 17. Andrea Gauster and Chris Morris are also performing. Tickets are available at Brian's Record Option, Renaissance Music, and online at www.wellingtonst.net. Advance tickets are $5, or a $30 package including Jon's new CD 'Time Is Tall' and his previous release 'The Auctioneer.' Tickets will be available at the door for $10. Doors open at 7 PM for this all ages event. Jon McLurg is a folk singer from Kingston, Ontario, who is currently supporting his third solo album 'Time Is Tall'. This remarkable album showcases his stunning songwriting abilities, and will be available on iTunes and in record stores around Kingston on September 21, 2010. His lyrics display a rare and mature wisdom for a man of only 26. It's not often one can find an artist so deeply immersed in folk's roots. As with his previous two records, "Time Is Tall" is a seamless mixture of Appalachian folk, bluegrass, Americana, country, Delta blues, and Celtic influences. Jon‟s influences are also very evident; Mississippi John Hurt, Hank Williams, Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, John Prine, Leonard Cohen, and Bob Dylan. To pick out one in any given song is a challenge, which is a testament to Jon's skilful songwriting abilities. It's not just in the writing with Jon McLurg. His voice is delicate, yet it never wavers. He sings each word like it's the most important lyric in the song. He‟s also a master fingerpicker capable of playing a variety of styles, which helps make his live solo performances as strong as the ones with his full backing band. The songs on Time Is Tall exude a timeless feel. Neither uber-contemporary nor old-fashioned, the lyrics, the music, the production, the instrumentation all complement each other exquisitely to allow the songwriting to take centre stage. Each track has several inspiring lyrics that the listener can take with them when the song is over. Jon has opened for Fred Eaglesmith, is a regular at the New Jersey Folk Festival, and he won the lyric contest in the July/August 2010 edition of American Songwriter Magazine for “Someone Thinks Of You†off his second album, 2008's The Auctioneer. www.jonmclurg.com www.andreagauster.com www.wellingtonst.net
  4. Find out what? A link for all the Dick's Picks and 77/78 SBDs. Got me there. Typical netiquette calls for you to ask people to PM you their email address rather than have them post it right in this public forum where e-mail extracting will likely occur resulting in an increase in spam traffic. I'm sure anyone worried about their addy being harvested is intelligent enough to use the PM button ... I used one of my secondary accounts for this purpose

    itunes Question

    have you put a checkmark next to the rest of your existing library in itunes?
  6. it was his hip hop show ... the biggest problem I recall (there were a few relatively minor issues that have slipped my memory) was that he posted on his website that the show has sold out, when in fact I had just told his management a couple of days before that we were hugely undersold. Tom Green told me when he got there that he had told a bus-load of friends from Ottawa to not bother coming because it was sold out. We lost money on the show and received no compensation from the artist, which I strongly felt was due. Overall, I found him rather unpleasant ... but I admit that my experience was tainted
  7. I see he's not playing Kingston ... that's probably because he tanked the two times he played here and fucked the promoter (me) and the venue. Not a chance in hell you'd catch me at his show.
  8. http://www.ticketsnow.com/InventoryBrowse/Phish-Tickets-at-Utica-Memorial-Auditorium-in-Utica?PID=1024983 - this makes me puke my guts out
  9. i hate you for posting that. It's sacrilege, but so enjoyable at the same time. I will never be the same.
  10. This is my first loss since last summer on Utica.
  11. My daughter is Julia (Beatles content). I also considered Guinnevere (CSNY) or Althea (GD)
  12. there's a ridiculous amount of hype about this ... I expect it'll be pretty rad
  13. That doesn't help. But it does.
  14. I wrote "garcia" in my Outlook calendar for 7 PM today, and I have no idea why. Any thoughts? New album? TV special?
  15. damn ... i only came to this thread to post a picture of the puppet. You lawyers always have every base covered

    If there's a reason that LivePhish is failing, just look for the megaupload link in every summer tour show thread on this board.

  21. I've always overlooked 1996 ... I had a fuckin blast listening to this show today on the 401. A big rain storm hit me in Brighton just as Antelope peaked. Threw me into fits of hysteria. Thanks Basher!
