  1. I heard that they record some songs and then...nothing. They said the chemistry wasn't there and nothing really came of their reunion. Sounds like it could be a winner, doesn't it?
  2. http://espn.go.com/blog/playbook/sounds/post/_/id/6648/robert-pollard-talks-college-no-hitter The story is now on ESPN...
  3. I'm in the same boat about the Avetts: used to love them but now they suck. My wife is a huge fan and loves her some wussed-out music of the same variety. When she heard their new song she said "What kind of pussy crap is that?"
  4. Man, I wish I could go but I have to work the next day. I live close enough to go (2 hours) and I do go to Atlanta for shows sometimes... Elf Power's playing too and I love me some Elf Power. Asheville is closer for me (less than an hour) and they're playing the Oasis Music Festival thingy the same weekend but there is no guarantee that I get into see them that weekend. I'm not fighting a bunch of hippies all weekend in cramped spaces just to not get let in; that's just not my idea of a good time. It would be awesome if they sold individual tickets to the show in Asheville. Bummer...
  5. I first started posting here in 2001 as a way to meet Wilco fans after YHF leaked. That album was so amazing that I had to seek other fans out and I stumbled upon this place. I was 21 and a senior in college: it was such an awesome place/time back then with little-to-no responsibilities and lots of personal discovery. It was new and awesome to interact with so many fans. I found so many of my now-favorite bands/albums through this site and through the suggestions of so many of the old posters...I almost quit when the post counts re-set back in the day and that was actually the beginning of
  6. Yeah, I mean he didn't like go all out and tell a bunch of jokes, stories and shit, but he acknowledged the crowd verbally on more than one occasion, generally talked between songs, talked about the Orange peel, and had a few other quips here and there. He seemed to be "there" and into it, if that makes any sense. I've seen him before where it seemed he really didn't care to be there and was completely disengaged. Heck, he even smiled some the other night. He seemed more comfortable the other night.
  7. I just caught Son volt live in Asheville the other night, and it was great. Anyone on the fence about seeing them should definitely go: probably the best show I've seen them play (my 7th jay-related show). The show is heavy on newer material but it's great to hear those new songs in the live setting. Jay was engaged with the audience and the band was having a blast. The opener, Col. Ford, is just Son Volt minus Jay playing old honky tonk covers, which was a total blast.
  8. My brother just got into Dawes and I told him that their studio material is good but seeing them live is really a treat. They're a real tight, enjoyable live band.
  9. No thoughts yet. I listened to the stream but it was more in the background than in the foreground of my thought. But I've gotta pick up this week: they're my wife's favorite band. We've worn out their last 2 records.
  10. Whoa, sounds like a cool little download, but, I'm either dumb or blind because I can't find it anywhere on his site.
  11. I have not heard if the vinyl will have a digital download or not. I would assume that it does. At any rate, I think I'm gonna wait until I see it for a lower price: I've been able to find most jay-related vinyl for around $10 a few months after its initial release.
  12. The local record store also had free Honky Tonk shirts with the purchase of the album...
  13. According to the local record store, the vinyl has been delayed for 2 weeks...Anyone else been able to pick a vinyl copy yet?
  14. Sounds pretty decent...less than 2 weeks until we find out for sure.
  15. It's General Admission, so no assigned seats. I'm not that much of a Keys fan but getting to see the Lips in Greenville's gonna be a real treat. Do you go the the Grey Eagle a lot? I'm interested to hear your opinion of the venue, if you do...
  16. Hey, I live G-Ville too: it's nice to see another Wilco fan from the area. My brother and I are hitting up the Black Keys show in SImpsonville too. We're more Flaming Lips fans, but I like the Keys as well.
  17. http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/son-volt-seek-transcendence-on-hearts-and-minds-song-premiere-20130215 Hearts and Minds, full song. Sounds pretty good to me.
  18. I saw him a couple of weeks back...It was awesome to see him play; it was... But...Dear sweet Jesus, the hipster douche bags in the crowd was almost unbearable. Too much pushing to try and get close to the stage and over-the-top fawning...blah. I thought jam band fans, frat boys and their ilk were the worst, not so anymore: Hipster retards are the worst. It was that unpleasant of an experience. As much as I love the music, I just can't see myself ever wanting to go see him play again because of the crowd he attracts.
  19. I've turned pretty sour towards RSD: bunch of over-hyped crap that I probably will never listen to with any sort of regularity and those releases will occupy space on my shelves for ages before I'll listen to them again. But, I am the sucker who buys the crap. In fact, the UT reissues are the only RSD things that I ever spin with any type of normalcy.
  20. I saw multiple copies of the 3 RSD Uncle Tupelo vinyls in the clearance rack the other day at one of the local stores. I've picked them all up since last RSD during sales and such...I don't think I've paid more that $15 for any of them. I really want the 7" box set and I really should pick it up: I've seen it for around $20 on the 'net.
  21. Break me is pretty stellar. I made a pretty killer Lemonheads playlist of their "best" songs and god-almighty is it great! The song that always kicks my ass is Great Big No. That period from Shame to Car Button Cloth yielded some really great tunes. I think so much of his stuff gets buried by people's perceptions of Dando, his personality, his drug use and so on...and maybe rightly so, but the proof of his gift with melody is always there.
  22. Just a few of my 10 outta 10: Superchunk - No Pocky for Kitty The Lemonheads - It's a Shame About Ray Weezer - Pinkerton GBV - Bee Thousand Sebadoh - Bakesale Silver Jews - American Water The Mountain Goats - The Sunset Tree Wilco - YHF Built to Spill - Keep it Like a Secret Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream
  23. RE: limited quantities and such I think that the only reason a limited quantity release should be done in the case of benefits and so on...in the 'mats case, I am totally for it! I hope Slim gets the help he needs from this release. I will gladly do my part in my little way, i.e., buying a digital release/physical mass-produced copy....I just can't afford the possible several hundred dollars this limited release may go for but I think it's for a great cause. However, limited release for sake of being limited is such bullshit. Like, this record store day crap, is just stupid in my opi
  24. I hope they do make them available digitally. Seems like they could benefit Slim a whole lot more after those limited editions sell out. I really wish I could swing the money for the EP but I know it's gonna get expensive.
