  1. Sooooo..... the record will be ONE SONG???
  2. Listened to the first episodes. A pleasant experience overall. Could use a little more basset hound content tbh.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. HOW COOL WAS THAT???? And thanks to TCP it is indeed now my ringtone.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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,
  11. Correct !! Thanks for the catch there.
  12. They landed on Wed and Sat off (for now anyway). So yeah, no show tonight. Don't think they did a poll.
  13. Save it for the press conference.
  14. Just today I got the email that the Andrew Bird / Calexico show in June is postponed till further notice. So assuming the Jeff Vic shows get moved, my only actual scheduled show with a ticket is our Railbird festival in August. Sigh.
  15. Bummer. Asterisks suck, but I’ve got no good ideas. I can’t even think of any non-US countries that are loose enough for a show right now. I was hopeful to beat my “personal best” of 57 from last year but there’s no way I’ll get there now. Alas.
  16. I greatly enjoyed this evening’s episode.
  17. I am not at all a fan of TM. But yesterday I did get a refund of the Roger Waters tix I bought several weeks ago. He rescheduled his whole tour to sometime in 2021.
  18. The Portland show that was 3/24 (night 2) at Arlene Schnitzer is now Nov 10 at Keller. (although the email I got with the ticket change says that it was changed from Sept 30 at Schnitzer... strange). Haven't seen anything new on Wilcoworld for any shows yet, nor have I heard anything about the other PNW tickets.
  19. Hey we got about 3 nanoseconds of Susie right there at the end!!
  20. Kudos to the person who asked what a bull black nova was. Perhaps someday some episode sometime we’ll get the actual song too!!
  21. Hey that’s great news!! Stay safe ...
  22. I start work from home tomorrow, and was considering all the benefits of that. - Riley (the family dog) curled up on the rug beside me all day - Eating my daily salad from an actual bowl instead of a plastic container (bonus points for a non-plastic fork!!) - Music from speakers instead of earbuds - Wayyyyy better view out my own window - Not having to decide in the morning what snacks I'll want that day (there will be snacks!) - Lack of white noise attempting to drown out the cubicle drone - Coats / umbrellas not needed - My Wilco (and others) poster walls - A REAL whiteboard - Did I mention
