Welcome, Guest

    Haven't pulled the trigger yet, but pretty sure we are going to spend our Halloween w/ Yarn in Rocky Mount, VA. Sucks that it is a Monday, but we are going to make the best of it.

    Have to figure out costumes. We spent last Halloween at MSG with Dead and Company, so this is a good follow-along.

    We've got out costumes...Anybody else headed to Rocky Mount for Halloween?

    Can't wait to spend Halloween getting weird with the guys...
    We will be going - a great way to spend Halloween. Maybe I will wear a costume too.
    Happy Yarn-O-Ween everybody!!

    Updated to get correct title
    It was a great night. Lot's of fun. Lot's of great music. You can see the setlist. 4 Elvis songs, two band members dressed as Elvis. Two new songs from the new recording sessions/album.

    I'm always pretty impressed by how many people in the crowd really know Yarn. The young woman next to me was familiar w/ Sioux City Gypsy. The requests included not just the regular sing-a-long favorites but a large part of the catalog (Schenectady was by request).

    So this was my fourth show since Sept. I feel particularly blessed to witness this stretch of music.

    First show I caught the first ever Jim Croce cover (Bad, Bad Leroy Brown)
    Second show I caught another first ever Jim Croce cover (Don't Mess Around w/ Jim)
    Third show I got what I believe to be the second ever Sioux City Gypsy (first debuted at Barnaroo on 10/1/16)
    Last night I got two debut songs.

    On to Barn Bash

    Thanks for the setlist and review. Sounds like I missed a good one.
    Can't wait for you guys to get a listen to Hurricane. Amazing powerful song. I'm calling it a Yarn classic already.

    I can't wait to listen to Hurricane.
    Only negative about Yarn-O-Ween was the opening act. I get that bands don't always get a choice of who opens for them.

    In this case Erin and the Wildfire, a local band our of Charlottesville opened.

    I don't mind Erin, she has a lot of vocal talent, but when you have a band opening for Yarn, you don't really want to hear them play Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus. Just not a good match.
