    My buddy taped this gem of a show a few weeks back. It is now on Archive. Bob Weir/Chris Robinson/ Jackie Greene Trio at the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium in Asheville, NC. Simply an amazing recording. If you want to have a few good hours of music check this one out.

    I saw Hot Tuna last friday and they were so good. It was an electric show. Jack, Jorma, Young Drummer who's name I forgot & Barry on the Mandolin. Steve Kimock and someone who's name I forgot opened the show. Steve also joined Tuna on the lap steel and guitar. My mom's been a Tuna fan since the 70's. I told my mom after the show that next time Yarn is in town she has to go. She said it's a deal. I forgot how good of a bass player Jack was. Aslo andrew blows Barry away on the Mandolin. Then again Barry does not play it like the lead guitar. This show was in the half round and I had 5th row center seats. Aside from the 2 drunks dudes who almost started to fight I had a blast. My mom even bought me a tee shirt.

    I spent the weekend listening to some new Dangermuffin shows and now my feet hurt from all the dancing. They are such a fun band. I am so diggin the new songs. I just bought there new album. It has a total summer/beach vibe to it. Very Groovy. They told me on twitter that they have another tour with Yarn coming up. Check out http://dangermuffinmusic.com for more info.

    I'm taping Dangermuffin tomorrow right here in Greensboro NC. Taped Yarn Thursday and Friday, Chris Robinson Brotherhood Sunday and Big Daddy Love tonight. I'm a tapin' fool.
    Have you seen Hot Tuna previously earlbny? I've seen them nay times over the years and they are wonderful. Thing is, after taping them for 5 consecutive years, you realize that the songs are played the same exact way every time. A 2000 Serpent of Dreams is a carbon copy of a 2012 Serpent Of Dreams. That's caused my interest to wane a little after discovering Ryan Adams and Yarn. Jorma has many great songs though and he sure can play~

    Thanks for the taping hopped, you madman!

    I saw them at the beacon a few years ago. They were great both times. Unlike yarn I don't know hot tuna inside and out. Even if the show was the same as the night before I would not have known. My mom had a blast and that's all that matters. The show brought her back to her high school /college days. I love that I can take my mom to shows. She's not an old fart. Lol yarn would make a killer open act for hot tuna. Dangermuffin opmed for hot tuna before. I am always looking for new music to listen to. Tyler stenson is my new Ryan Adams. He's a great songwriter and storyteller.

    Thanks hopped for taping. Soon I will have new shows to dl.

    I am going to see the counting crows in a couple of weeks. I can't wait. I am going to try and tape.

    Side note: Announcer at Fun Fourth yesterday thanked Dangermuffin for bringing beach music to the piedmont. In his defense, he said it before the band played.

    Psyched to go back to Arch St. this Friday for The Mallett Brothers Band. Not so psyched that they're only the openers. Waylon Speed is headlining. They've played Wormtown in the past...in fact JohnD has taped them I see up on archive.org.

    Anybody here ever see them?

    I saw Waylon Speed at Bears picnic and Ws had a pretty good following. Had the crowd dancing pretty hard. Ws would rob ably fit your taste in music

    My dear friend and super talented struggling unknown musician Tyler Stenson is set to release his 10th album Some Days I’m a Lion on October 19th, 2012. If you are a fan of singer/songwriters who play 3 chords and the truth or as Tyler calls it “Elegent Folk” then do yourself a favor and check him out. A few days ago he uploaded a 5 minute preview of his new album on YouTube which you can watch at the link below or you can stream 7 killer songs from his new album on his website. Tyler also got a call from a talent scout asking him to try out for the Voice on NBC. I am not sure how he did. He’s not one for trying out for reality show singing completions but since they found him and told him they would give him the royal treatment he agreed to tryout. I know I may be a bit bias being that I am friends with Tyler but I think it’s really good.

    5 minute album preview

    Listen to the 1st 7 songs from the new album. http://tylerstenson.com/music-player.html

    I've been a fan of moe. since the 90's that dueling guitar gets me every time. 2 of the best spaced out guitar players. I love when they get as loud as any heavy metal band yet everyone is dancing around like hippies. moe. yarn would make a nice double bill. The past week it's been all Andrew Hendryx Band. That show he did in Auguest smokes. I am also digging the new albums from Band of Horses,The Avett Brothers and Chris Rob Britherhood. Just to name a few.

    I like old honky-tonk country music and there is just too little of it out there today. I was surprised by Dale Watson at Bristol R&R (and surprised by the quality of a rare hoppedup stealth recording):


    More honky-tonk by one of my favorites:


    I did not tape a recent JP Harris & the Tough Choices set, but they are doing some kick-ass stuff as well.

    My friend Tyler Stenson just released his 10th album some days i'm a Lion. Good stuff if you ask me. keep reading for more info.


    Tyler Stenson - some days i'm a Lion

    Album Notes

    Standing as Stenson's boldest release yet, 'Some Days I’m a Lion' is a motivational anthem as much as it is an album title. Although inspired by a few of the darker days within his musical endeavor, this 12-track LP touches on the up-and-down tribulations of the human existence but ultimately imparts a wisdom for overcoming uncertainty, believing in self and loving fearlessly.

    Ryan Adams

    I just wanted to give you a last minute heads up if you are around a computer tonight. My friend Tyler Stenson is releasing his 10TH album tomorrow in Portland OR and will be streaming his concert online. How cool is that? Keep reading for all the details.

    Thanks hopped. That show is news to me. My friends were at that show. The opening act tender mercies is so good. I highly recommend there self titled debut. Its old school Folk Rock. TM are a band that features members of the CC. They were a local San Fran band from back in the day that finally put out an album. I also taped 2 CC shows but due to the storm have yet to upload them.
    • CommentTimeNov 30th 2012
    After seeing them last night, I'd highly recommend The Alternate Routes. The recording came out pretty good as well:


    earlbny, you're right. After seeing them, I'd put their sound more in the Mumford and Sons camp than Counting Crows.

    The is one of my all time favorite songs. My other favorite band Counting Crows covered it at the Viper Room way back in 1995. I just dusted it off and thought Yarn could do a nice job covering it as well. The song is called Richest Masn by Bill Carter. Lot's of people have covered. I can hear Yarn in my head covering it. They would kill it.

    I just discovered a dou from California called the Milk Carton Kids. If you dig Simon and Garfunkle and 60's Folk music you make dig this group. Ther group features to acoustic guitar players and singers and nothing else. They have 3 albums under there belt and can be downloaded for free at there website. http://themilkcartonkids.com/ It's good music to chill out to.

    Some of my friends were complaining that the Jam at the end of this song was too long. Personaly I wish it was longer. They are not Jamband fans.

    Kinda surprised this little firecracker hasn't shown up here yet - Lydia Loveless. She's got an interesting story. And how can you go wrong with a drunken breakup song based on the rhythm guitar riff to "What Goes On" by The Velvet Underground I recommend buying the album "Indestructible Machine" with great haste.

    Shame on me. I never heard of Lydia Loveless. I just sampled some of her stuff. I dig it. Good stuff. Thanks for the recommendation.

    I just picked up the new album from the Tedeschi Trucks Band. It's soooooooooo good.

    • CommentTimeOct 3rd 2013
    Last month I saw the Tedeschi Trucks Band at the Beacon Theatre. The London Souls opened. Dicky Betts joined the band for a few songs. Did did a few classic ABB songs. It was so good.

    I cant stop listening to the London Souls. Like Yarn they have so much chemestry and are stuck in the wrong generation.

    The London Souls’ unique reinterpretation of classic hard-hitting rock and roll formulae recalls elements of the past with an ever-present boundless energy, fit to cement their place in the future. Tash and Chris have been nothing short of a best-kept secret among New York City concertgoers since the bands formation in 2008, building a fervent and dynamic fan base leveraged by their ever sustained reputation for consistently well-rehearsed and impassioned, explosive live performances. The band’s celebrated sound and spirit draws significant influence from the driving force of British rock pioneers Cream and Led Zeppelin to billowing and bouncing funk and soul, to the layered harmonies and memorable hooks of The Beatles and The Hollies, to the contemporary psychedelia of My Morning Jacket among many more.

    For more info check out http://www.thelondonsouls.com/ or watch a full concert at the following link. It's not the best video but I have seen worse.

    Over the Weekend I had the pleasure of seeing Josh Ritter in concert. It was a solo acoustic show. Solo or with a full band Josh puts on a great show. He comes highly recomended from me. Anyway the opening act was someone I've never heard of before. It's was a guy by the name of Anhony D'Amato. From the opening note I was hooked. No bells or whistles. Just acoustic guitar, harmonica, and vocals. After Anthony's set I bought 2 of his albums and signed up for his mailing list. I also got to talk to Anthony for a while. He was such a nice guy. We were talking about music. One thing let to another and I asked him if he's heard of the band Yarn. Turns out he's played with Rod before. He's got 2 albums under his belt and a 3rd due out this summer. For more info check out the link below. He's got a band camp link so you can stream the 1st 2 albums. Support the little guy.

    BIO: Anthony D'Amato first came to national attention with 2010's ‘Down Wires,’ which he recorded with a single microphone in his college bedroom. The album earned praise everywhere from NPR and The New York Times to Paste and American Songwriter, along with a nod from The World Cafe for their emerging artist series “Next" (past artists include Fleet Foxes and Dawes). He followed it up with another home recording, 'Paper Back Bones,' which the BBC named one of the Best Americana Albums of 2012. Dates in the US and Europe with Pete Yorn, Ben Kweller, Alejandro Escovedo, Joe Pug, and more ensued, in addition to a performance at the iconic Newport Folk Festival.

    In 2013, D'Amato signed with New West Records, home to Steve Earle, Kris Kristofferson, and Patty Griffin among others, and headed to The Great North Sound Society in Maine with producer Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter, Langhorne Slim) and members of Bon Iver and Megafaun to record his studio/label debut. The album is due out in 2014.

    Saw Chris Robinson Brotherhood Friday night. RC, if there is a band out there for old deadheads to follow, this is it. Great playing and jams. You should definitely give them a shot if they play anywhere near you.
    Um, I've tried. Just youtubes and such but I'm not getting it.

    Never cared for the Crowes live and Robinson in general.

    Ha, hey man, I appreciate the heads up and I don't mean to sound dickish but they don't cut it for me. After 15 years of the real deal, I appreciate a one-off Dead tune on occasion but I'm pretty through with that stuff.
    • CommentTimeApr 22nd 2014
    RC, no worries. I remember your comments from earlier in this thread. Friday night's show was even better than the first time I saw them. I know a lot of artists that people go crazy for that I just can't get into (Avetts, Phish, Mumford to name a few). There were no Dead covers last weekend but they did do Catfish John. I've heard a few heads say that CRB was the best thing going right now.
    If they come close enough someday, maybe I'll check 'em out. I did do Phish last summer just for kicks... been there, done that. I agree with the rest of your list too. Esp Mumford.

    The #1 most anticipated album I am looking forward to is the new album from Counting Crows. It's the 1st new album in six years. Not including an album of covers and a few live albums they released since the last studio album. This is also the 1st studio album they made without a record company.

    I am also looking forward to the new albums from moe., Umphrey's McGee & Anthony D'Amato just to name a few.

    I was away on vacation last week and had losts of time to listen to music. I revisited Keep An Eye On The Sky [Box set, Original recording remastered] by Big Star. What a great underrated band. So many great songs. I even watched the Big Star documentary Nothing can hurt Me.



    I dig CRB. They are not the Dead or Yarn but they can boogie.

    been focusing a lot on Real Estate the last few months. I loved their album Days from a few years ago and really love their new album Atlas.
    I went to Nashville in March to see them live and they were fantastic!

    I really like the Chris Robinson Brotherhood, especially live. But the Black Crowes have been my favorite band for like half of my life...so I'm probably going to like it no matter what! But throwing Neal into the mix, and seeing that Neal is really the highlight of the band just makes me happy. I saw them 3 times on their last tour but not yet this tour. I will be seeing them in 2 weeks though and am very excited!!

    I can't wait for the new Umphrey's McGee album. It's an arena rock album with out the cheesy.

    Brand new Counting Crows album comes out in the fall. It's the 1st new album in over 5 years. I've heard 5 new songs played live a few weeks ago and they sound awesome. Some of them have been stuck in my head for days.

    Widespread Panic is my boyfriend's favorite band. I saw them once in 2007 or 2008 before I met him, and then not again until the 4 shows I saw last year! :)
    Luckily they played 2 nights here in Louisville, one night where we got front row! First time in my life. And then we saw them 2 nights in Nashville outside in the rain. Damn do they give you your money's worth! They just play and play, especially in TN they really brought it! So great live.

    last week I saw Phosphorescent put on a great show, with Jim James coming out for the encore!! and then saw TWEEDY the following night where I heard pretty much all of their upcoming album and then got a great solo set from Jeff. AWESOME show! And the Chris Robinson Brotherhood this Friday coming up!

    And I get my first Yarn show in over 3 years in about 10 Days!! GREAT concert month.
