  1. Also ordered with the Offerman live stream. The email I got was from "The Seminary Co-op Bookstore" via stamps.com and had a tracking link. Took two weeks from teh time it "shipped" but finally arrived.
  2. Today's episode #24 is a particular favorite of mine. Check it out!
  3. William Tyler!! Nashville City Winery outdoors
  4. If you have changed your screen name since you started on VC originally, try using the latest one rather than the original one.
  5. Certainly a delightful evening, and what I'd call "as good as it gets" in the times we're in. Great music, VERY safe environment (at the expense of a more intimate experience, but definitely a good, appropriate trade-off), and a really emotional time for everyone. Jeff made it very clear all night that he was thrilled / grateful / relieved to be back on stage. He said right off that it was gonna be tough getting them OFF the stage, and then quipped that they were going to "play all night" before dashing all our hopes by telling that no, they really had a strict curfew there... sigh. He als
  6. We could see a drone flying around but they never did show any shots from it on the big video screens. Were there any good angles from that?
  7. First spin - sounds more “musical” than some of their other recent albums. Looking forward to spending some quality time with this one.
  8. ALTWYS might be my new second favorite solo acoustic song! Love the way that turned out.
  9. Yes. Yes they / we / I do. Less effective over IG though... sigh.
  10. I fully support this sentiment.
  11. Sooooo..... the record will be ONE SONG???
  12. Listened to the first episodes. A pleasant experience overall. Could use a little more basset hound content tbh.
  13. Transitioning into the "pay per view" version of this a little bit nowadays. Andrew Bird a couple weeks ago... Lucero last weekend... GBV today!! Probably Yo La Tengo this weekend Ken Stringfellow and another round of ABird next weekend. Cheap, entertaining, and hopefully kicks a few coins to the ones we miss a lot.
  14. Yep. I like it, but I really liked the last couple records as much as any of the early stuff. This one is a bit of a musical buffet, with everyone in the band doing a couple songs of their own along with some pretty good Louris tunes. I like that Gary's in a good place now and I think you can really hear it in these last few records.
  15. Well said Isaac and thanks for sharing. We’ll hold you accountable next summer in North Adams to find more of us irl. Just look for the hugs, that’ll be us. Vince
  16. That would be an excellent sidewalk discussion someday! Short version is that I started bringing a big "BULL BLACK NOVA" sign to shows a few years back, and he noticed / called me out on it a time or two. Nevertheless, I persisted... and also started requesting the song at the Vic shows and the couple of living room shows that I've been fortunate enough to attend. He put 2+2 together at a LRS and it's been a "thing" ever since. Check #bullblacknova on FB - the whole sign thing has kinda developed a life of its own.
  17. HOW COOL WAS THAT???? And thanks to TCP it is indeed now my ringtone.
  18. I’m looking forward to the solo debut of You Satellite. I love it when he takes a really epic full-band song and reimagines it solo acoustic. Bull Black Nova (obviously), Diamond Light, Spiders.. to name a few... those all increase their interestingness in their solo form. Dark Neon would be another one that intrigues me in that vein.
  19. Gary Louris started doing “The Shit Show” twice a week (similar but not really to the Tweedy show). Wednesday’s and Sunday’s which is a nice drop in to the off lights with Jeff.
  20. I saw this excerpt from the earnings call with the CEO of LiveNation Michael Rapino. Article here https://metalinjection.net/its-just-business/live-nation-ceo-outlines-reopening-strategy-experimenting-with-shows-in-the-fall-be-on-sale-in-q3-q4-full-scale-by-2021?fbclid=IwAR2OUTl9eyBNB8VSvU6fQQ--hZTqS_Iy6AIrIkhjSVBHuFBiPuar2PNMX98 Seems as reasonable a plan as any. ps - I have no idea why a Metal Injection story popped up on my FB feed other than the topic itself,
  21. Correct !! Thanks for the catch there.
