They are coming back in October to play at the Fillmore in SS... 10/1 I think.
We were promised jet packs is hands down one of the best band names. How blown would you be if you showed up somewhere and they promised you jet packs, but there were none?
And secondly, god dammit this show is sold out. I can't believe I'm just now hearing about it. Enjoy.
Apparently I was wrong. The price dropped the $49, get it while it's hot!
Hackensaw Boys added to Interlocken Festival. Full lineup to be announced today.
is this it? found it somewhere on twitter
Speaking of decent music events I have no intention of attending because they're on college football Saturdays, Farm Aid will be at SPAC.
That is it...it leaked but it's now confirmed because it was posted at Bonnaroo today (the original plan was to unveil the lineup there, since the Relix publisher is the promoter of Interlocken).
What an awesome venue that is.
Saw The Postal Service last night. Great show.

Firefly was fantastic in just about every way.
just wanted to add that Dwight Yoakum put on a hell of a show on Friday night..played for over 2 hours straight with a small break for an encore. Played some new, old, some Buck covers, and Cash's Ring of Fire.
Jackie Robinson isn't dirty. This isn't Pack Pride.
Last year was MUCH better, but this year was still a good time.
Wilco's all covers setlist from last night. Solid.
Im ready for aa 5th of vodica to end my feels.
Even if it was pretty novel, if you went to that show, wouldn't you be kinda pissed?
Like if Phish did it that would be one thing.

"Maryland football: Where everybody gets hurt and the starting left tackle has an existential crisis."
It was billed as an all covers show. Even took fan suggestions for covers leading up to the show. Also, they had done their own material the previous two(?) nights of the festival.

oh okay, didn't realize that. That would be awesome then. Carry on.
My bad, had that mixed up.....Friday was the all cover set and Saturday was their regular set.
I think I'd be pretty into a set like that. Especially if what was coming up was a surprise. I image their lead guitar player Nels Cline could do some of the songs on that set list justice.
I am going to have to get my hands on that show.

Americanarama Atlanta review
This is a pretty great lineup with a lot of overlap in audiences. I saw lots of folks around me either knew or just dug the hell out of MMJ and Wilco both. Lots of old deadheads in the crowd too. A few remarks that this was the most dancing ever at a Wilco show. LOL stiffs.
I thought Bob Weir was the MVP of the night. It's just him and an acoustic for his 30-35min set. I liked it. He picked great songs even tho I'm dying for an Estimated Prophet having moved from California this year. 20 minutes is pretty ideal for this kind of music as it eventually gets a little tiring without accompaniment. The song with the most promise was The Other One (even without Phil destroying it with bass bombs), but Bobby had to "cut this one short and finish it tmrw" because he was running out of time.
But when Bobby joins MMJ and Wilco both, he really shines. His voice is great and strong and his guitar playing is amazing. He took 1 of the 4 solos in I KNOW YOU RIDER with MMJ. (Carl, Bob, Carl, Jim solo order). His solo was every bit as good as Carl's or Jim's too. Just a really strong performance. Bobby has been a hit or miss guest for me with some of the other bands I follow so I was thrilled at how great he was with MMJ especially.
Bobby was integral in the highlight of the night for me which was the Dark Star>California Stars>Dark Star in Wilco's set. There was this really long and greatly strange intro to Dark Star with lots of guitar licks trading back and forth. Then it was pretty standard fare for a bit. There was a seamless transition into CS which I'm not familiar with. They slammed back into Dark Star and the magic really happened. They got weir(d) and people all over the place were losing their shit. After they ended, Jeff remarked something to the effect of he "didn't realize this show was going to take that kind of turn."
I think MMJ and Wilco both benefit and are hurt by the abbreviated time slot. There is more urgency in their playing and when they are rocking, they are REALLY rocking. What hurts is building the peak of the show and having to devote so much time to slower and varied playing. Wonderful is one of my favorites. And I loved hearing it. But coupled with some of the other more softer tunes, it eats up such a large chunk of the set when I want to go balls to the wall. I'm absolutely dying for a Highly Suspicious.
My last two MMJ shows here in ATL have been abbreviated sets and it just feels like they have X amount of energy to unleash in a show and these sets only allow for a little of it to slip out.
My MMJ highlights started with the rarity After Dark of course. It Beats for You was the first especially notable moment for me tho. They jammed out the ending of it and, coupled with the After Dark opener, made it seem like they were fired out of the rocket and were just going to blow us away the entire hour. Alas, they took it down here and there, but every song was played well and Jim's voice melts my soul every time I see him. It is truly a pleasure to hear that man wail.
(As an aside - I'm so in love with the fact that MMJ doesn't have any "bathroom" or "time to get another beer" songs. They write amazingly great songs and even the ones on my lower tier, I still love. That is a really amazing thing about them and unique to nearly every other band I follow.)
MMJ finished strong with a really great Victory Dance and the obligatory One Big Holiday. I call OBH my "(Phish's) Character Zer0" song. You know it's coming. You know it's going to rock. You know the frat boys are going to love it. Guess what? So do I. And I hope I always do. It's a great song, just like Character Zer0. Suck it haters.
I don't have too much to say about Wilco as it was my first time seeing them and only being slightly familiar with them. They provided the highlight of the night for me (Dark Star>California Stars>Dark Star) and I loved the way they finished their show with high energy tunes. They are great musicians, I'm just not sure if I'm on board or not. They don't move me and I'm not sure I like Jeff's voice honestly.
I have less to say about Bob Dylan. I've seen him a handful of times and have seen good Bob and bad Bob. My crew was pretty spent after MMJ and Wilco and we didn't give him too much of a chance honestly. It didn't really seem like "good Bob" was on stage tho.
Bob also has rules against any pictures or taping and the venue was doing its best to enforce it with jack boots on... especially, but not limited to, Dylan's set. They make a formal announcement before Dylan goes on to remind everyone to keep your phones in your pocket. It just felt so antiquated. And it sucks not to have any decent audio of these great Bob Weir collaborations every night. EVERYONE seemed to love Bob Weir joining their band whether they were Wilco or MMJ fans. I really dug that. Great audience.
My guests who were MMJ first timers came away true believers. That was awesome as I've been trying to get them into MMJ for over a decade now. MMJ are really one of the only bands I like that I think are really accessible to just about anyone - as long as they like some form of Rock and Roll. It's always great when they blow newbies away tho. I suspect they'll pick up a lot of fans on this tour. - Colfax
ps. Guitarist Nels Cline was sporting Duane Allman's famed 1957 Les Paul guitar, on loan from the Big House Museum during the Dark Star>CS>DS
pps. Edited with links to music. Here's Wilco: http://bt.etree.org/details.php?id=565062; MMJ linked below

Always wondered why some band doesn't get XM to sponsor their tour, play one of the XM channels over PA pre-show, and pick a set of 3-4 songs from XM during the day and cover them during the show. Seems like a win/win for everyone.
It's pretty cool. Here's a link:
Damn. I didn't know Weir was playing on any of the dates.
Still pumped about seeing this in Philly at the end of the month. Also, thanks for the link to the boot, will download tomorrow.
On a whole different note, I just got back from seeing Big Star's Third in Central Park. Amazing tribute show to Big Star, and included Jody Stephens of Big Star, Mike Mills of R.E.M., Chris Stamey of the dB's, Ken Stringfellow of The Posies and Big Star, Marshall Crenshaw, Richard Lloyd of Television, Django Haskins of The Old Ceremony, and guest appearances by Kurt Vile and Pete Yorn and a few others. Plus a full string/horn section.
They opened with most of #1 Record and then went into playing everything from Third/Sister Lovers except for the covers of "Till the End of the Day" and "Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On." They added in "September Gurls," "The Letter," and a three Chris Bell songs, "There Was a Light," "You and Your Sister," and "I Am the Cosmos."
It was a fantastic two hours of (free) music at a great venue. Really excited to see the Big Star documentary (hopefully) this week.

Bobby played the first 4 shows of the tour. There are some fragments of his sit ins available on youtube. He played Brown Eyed Women and I Know you Rider last night in Nashville with MMJ and then Bird Song and Tomorrow Never Knows with Wilco.
I edited in links to the music above. Dark Star>California Stars>Dark Star!!
Would anyone want to give me a ride to MPP for Sunday's Phish show?
Also, just got a flight out to Denver to see DMB with Snoooooooooooooooooop opening. Kinda excited.
