Today's Song

Sugaree

Answer

Burlington, VT, Patrick Gymnasium - University of Vermont
5/6/1978
Sugaree was only placed a show-opener a few times, always a very welcome surprise. This and Lake Placid 83 come to mind

Keith is playing a Yamaha CP-70 electric grand piano on this Sugaree...he played it from September 1977 - February 1979. Brent played one for most of 1982.

I found today’s song fast as lightning but stumped by All Girl Asian Band hint! Today I started listening to the song a few times all the way through before searching. Clues within today’s song made it easy but without the set-opener hint I would probably still be searching. I remember Sugaree opener Oakland Aud New Years Run ‘79.

Clue...

Haha, that helps to confirm the choice. But way too out there for me to be used to find the song. To paraphrase Mike Tyson.. " I tip my head to that one."

After listening to a lot of the "Sugaree" openers, this one is smokin'..

Hint . . . .

The "[a]ll girl Asian band" hint was so incredibly brilliant. I came down to two shows that I was picking between and this hint sealed it for me. I could not figure it out and my 15 year old son came in the room and had the answer. What a smart, smart clue (and kid). It truly is all in the numbers.

Band Clue

I'm clueless. Please explain. There's an asian girl band called Patrick Gymnasium? Burlington? Vermont?
I don't get it.

A day later so it is ok to let you know:

There is an Asian female rock band called the 5,6,7,8's.

The date of the show was 05-06-78.

Great Asian band clue!

Wu? Who? Great Asian band clue! Right under the nose and then.... oh yeah! Like that movie, Birth William (or maybe I am a day late & a dollar short with that reference).

Although this "hint" didn't get me to today's answer, it nevertheless had this fish hooked just like I was after hearing my first Franklin's till I figured it out. Cryptic as hell, yet absolutely spot on.

Thanks for the brain exercise.

Great. I got the Sugaree, now I have to spend the rest of the day figuring out the Asian girl band clue. Maybe we should have a 30 days of the clues contest.

"from the parking lot"

November 10th was stunned by November 11th after November 11th hit one “from the parking lot” in November 10th. If you get a chance, check out the jam from Scarlet into Fire at November 11th’s venue a score less 16 years later.

Today's clue

I have been on here for years, but I signed up today just so I could post a comment. The "Asian girl group" clue is the greatest clue I have ever seen posted on 30DoD. That was brilliant!

@WildBill29 Awesome movie!

As most of his are! My favorite, is one he wrote early on in his career...”True Romance”! Director’s Cut is a must on this movie! So many incredible actors in this film. The scene with Vincent Concotti (Christopher Walkin) and Clifford Worley (Dennis Hopper) is brilliant! An insanely great cast, and still my all time favorite movie! If you have never seen it, I doth highly recommend. I’m still in love with Alabama!

@eyes43 Hell yes!!

Being Italian, I love that whole scene where Hopper knows he's gonna get it, so he rips Walken for being Sicilian. LMAO. I haven't seen it a long time. I'll have to get the director's cut. Thanks for reminding me about that one. :)

We have an Affirmed winner today. While only containing 2 instrumental interludes, they're both scorchers. And, of course, never look a gift horse in the mouth :)
