The human is writing this one, since tonight on our neighborhood dog walk, there was a little sidewalk chart spelling session. The joy of growing up in a world where school is closed, likely for the rest of the year, means the sidewalks have become the new message boards. What was written on the sidewalk in bright pink chalk? HOPE! Why is this important? Watching TV right now with the crazy ticker or reading the newspapers on your iPad or […]
If you ask the Leslie for a review of all the music from her recent retreat, this is probably the simplest way to grasp the depth of the music. https://www.npr.org/2018/03/28/597249653/im-with-her-tiny-desk-concert https://www.npr.org/sections/world-cafe/2018/08/22/640623826/rayland-baxter-on-world-cafe https://www.npr.org/2011/08/01/137183853/newport-folk-2011-amos-lee-live-in-concert It’s been fun listening to her tell everybody how much she loved I’m With Her, but never sure that was their name.
So there is a whole lot going on in Nashville right now. Building, building everywhere . . . West Nashville is going through that transformation where it’s now affordable for those priced out of the city. Then East Nashville is also going through that thing. . . From downtown the crane count was 15 in all directions and that was on a cloudy weekend. We fell for Project 615 when Tim Shaw did the Live for Today t-shirt, so checking […]
Biscuits and Gravy, Biscuits into a Blueberry French Toast, Sweet’n Savory Bacon, Hand crafted mugs and a stroll to the Gulch only mean Biscuit Love. Yes it is a tourist breakfast stop and if you wait til 9 am you will be lined up outside on the street corner. The Gulch is changing and becoming a whole lot hmmm. mmm not sure how to nicely say what it is becoming with out saying it’s not very diverse. The train station […]
There is something about being in the bachelorette party capital of the south on a Saturday. Everywhere you go there are party busses, pedal carts and woo girls. You may also run into a Carl Wockner, Jade Million or a few warehouse members that stumble into Acme Feed and Seed. If you like Las Vegas on NYC, Nashville has that same vibe, just only a few blocks instead of the strip or all of Manhattan. If you stroll just right […]
Reba and Crosby are very grateful dogs. They have a great house or maybe they should make it plural. They were happy with the river, Charleroi, A-wall, little Boston, Canal Winchester, Upper Arlington, Monongahela or Destin. As long as they had beds and belly rubs they were good to go, rolling with the punches in 2018. Something about the magical fibers emitted in the fur.
It has been many years since we did a tour opener. This year the calendar worked out to put us near the Ohio State campus to catch the DMB fall tour kickoff. We were expecting a Where Are You Going. Check we got it. Dancing nancies. Check. Minarets. Check. Sweet emotion. The band looked like they were having fun. how big of a burger can you eat? Did we mention Son Of Thurman’s makes amazing burgers?. Here’s the set list. […]
Some of you ask why one would go see the same band over and over and over again. The answer is, it’s never the same. Some nights the Stone is just the Stone. Other nights the energy is just so awesome. This is one example of awesome. Sidenote thanks to RJ for the golf ball.
We were stage left strong. And Stefan was Stoked. After mechanical delays and a really early start we made the Raleigh show. After last nights great show with Everyday for an opener, Granny, the Stone, Crush, Rapunzel, Nancies, an energetic Sledgehammer, Ants and Grey St. We also had a crazy little group sitting around me let’s look back at the DMB map that I never sit down to complete. PA PIT Three Rivers and PNC Park BTown (Farm Aid) PHL […]
Sometimes it pays to be the nerd, especially when you have something amazing happening in your own back yard. Farm Aid 2017 is sold out in Pittsburgh. Guess that means? Maybe the people of Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio support good food.
