Re: Your Most Recent Show?

Saw drivin' and cryin' at Mercury Lounge last night - Findlay Brown opened for them. I love the Merc 'cause it's such an intimate setting - 200 people, tops. Besides the fact that drivin' and cryin' put on such a good show (no set list!), Joseph Arthur and Kraig Jarrett Johnson surprise-guested on a...

Re: 15 new shows announced! (added to shows page)

When I follow the link on the SA Facebook page to a list of shows, I see a show in Westbury, NY that isn't listed here. You know something we don't regarding whether said show's gonna happen? ;)

I'm curious 'cause that's damn close to my house and would be awfully convenient.

As am I. He seemed a very nice, everyday guy - same as the rest of the guys. No swelled heads.

Re: Why I love Soul Asylum

Yesterday I wrote a somewhat lengthy response, then lost it 'cause I wasn't logged in. Duh. That said, my major points were these: First, SA's one of the best bands I've seen (and I've seen scores) - the charisma, talent, and skill levels go to eleven. Only having become a fan about a year ago, I mi...

Re: Spin Magazine: The Oral History of Runaway Train

Interesting article - thanks for sharing. My only quibble (with the wording) is what follows the statement below: "...the pressure of trying to manage expectations...altered the band's trajectory in a way that...was ultimately unhealthy. In fact, Pirner is the only band member from that era still in...

Re: No Fun Intended Cover Album

An amusing aside: I think Spotify needs recalibration: I listened to No Fun - as well as some other SA, I guess - so now it's suggesting REO Speedwagon and Nazareth. Um, no.

Re: No Fun Intended Cover Album

I'd love originals, but I'd be lying if I said I'm not excited about these downloads; I dig the vibe and the songs they opted to cover. Also, the format doesn't bother me - I'm not attached to vinyl (or physical copies in general).

Re: Your Most Recent Show?

Kinda abandoned my own thread, but I'm back! So far this year the highlights have been: Soundgarden (great sound, but couldn't see a damned thing due to being stuck in the back) Nick Cave (again, great sound, and a great, personal connection if you happened to be in the first three rows - he didn't ...

Re: Dave on 96.3 K-Twin

Interesting interview; he's not exactly up-front and matter-of-fact regarding Dan's departure, is he? One needs to read between the lines a bit.
