  1. Cheap Trick. Great logo, great imagery. Pick the band member you identify with: the freak, the nerd, the hipster or the sex symbol.
  2. I was there and thought it was a great show. Tweedy gets better and better as a musician and performer. I would say the audience was more polite than detached. Everyone seemed to really be in the moment, just on their best behavior. Maybe it was the venue. I was kind of glad that the audience was quiet because all I really wanted to hear was Jeff Tweedy. Been to enough shows where people talked through quiet songs or went on beer runs every 3 songs to appreciate an evening of great music performed by one of my favorite artists. Thanks for the review bbop! BTW, Buck Meek was excellent as we

  4. I was there and it was phenomenal! As you stated, the weather was outstanding and the band sounded great. Most impressive were the vocals. Jeff's voice was in fine timbre and the backing vocals were the best I've ever heard from them live. Further, John killed it on "In the Street" with Pat adding gorgeous harmonies. I saw a number of folks visibly impressed with their cover of a well-known Memphis classic. Jody on the drums didn't add any sloppiness like they were finding their way through the songs; they sounded tight with him behind the kit. I'm not one of those people who write down s
  5. More and more, day by day, I hate the lazy journalism of our time...polls. Whether I agree with the choices or not, I am cognizant of the fact that it's very easy to manipulate facts to justify the opinion of the poll creator(s).
  6. Me too. Say "hey" to Barn for us, Anj.
  7. Truly a great show. I've never been to a bad show at Mud Island and this was no exception. Crowd: Talkers came close to ruining the beginning of the show for me but I used all the patience I had in me and thankfully they stopped talking and then left. Their exit was one of the highlights of the evening. Met some nice folks down from Indy to see the show. Music: great set. As usual, the beginning of the show was slower than the end but the songs we got were for the die hards and we appreciated them. By the end of the main set a rock show had broken out and there was no slowing down. Ne

    What If

    I think the first thing that would not have happened is A Ghost Is Born. I just don't see Wilco making that album with Jay Bennett still in the band. At least not the way it turned out.
  9. I've already gotten my tix for the Memphis show (5/19). I would inquire. edit: just remembered I got shut out of the pre-sale so my tix were through ticket master. I'd still inquire.
  10. Really nice. Makes me proud to be a Missippin, Mississipan, Missi pian.......from the same state! I actually saw Pat's family at a show in Oxford, MS a few years ago and his dad was dancing like a maniac up in his "VIP" section.
  11. Tomorrow will be our 20 year anniversary, so I guess our wedding worked. We had a large wedding, but we both have huge families. I did make my wife wait until I had graduated from college and had a job before we got married just because I wanted to make sure I could do my part to support us. We paid for a good portion of our wedding ourselves and neither of our families have much money, so it was all done on the cheap. Photog was a friend of the family; ditto on the dj; didn't rent a limo, just borrowed my uncle's caddy and had my cousin drive us; food was donated and prepared by wife's au
  12. Twas outstanding. I really enjoyed it.
  13. I really enjoy this song and don't find it cheesy at all. For me it comes across as another fine example of Jeff's ability to turn a song's mood on a dime. The song starts with upbeat music as the narrator describes life in the big city without any opinion as to whether this place is good or bad. Then just as he says "I wish you were here with me. Better yet I wish I was there with you," the mood changes completely both lyrically and musically with "You wouldn't like it here..." And I don't mind competent musicians exploring different musical styles. Especially if they can pull it off.
