The drum maker and me...
Lamin (Slice) Gassama, drum maker and drum teacher to little Gambian drum monsters... and Me
Bob, Jackie, and Chris played outside next to the St. Vrain River last night. The venue is small, intimate and relaxing as you can wade in the shallow current of the river and still see what's happening on stage. After Josh Ritter finished his set, the Weir Greene Robinson trio began their acoustic set with New Speedway Boogie. The rest is as follows:
Friend of the Devil, Ramble On Rose, When I Paint My Masterpiece, Catfish John, Tell Me Mama Tell Me Right, Appaloosa, Big Bad Blues, Sugaree, Peggy-O, Bird Song, Uncle Johns Band, China Cat Sunflower > I Know You Rider
Earlier in the day our group stopped at Oskar Blues Brewpub for some good hoppy brews.
This weekend? Sometimes I wish I would have bought tix to YMSB and Railroad Earth at RR that night instead. Too many choices which is a good thing..

Got my tickets for the Knoxville show. Can't hardley wait to see old Ace bend those strings again. Peace darkstarr.
Bob-O: Don't come to Arizona.
I see all these other 'heads begging you to come to their town. I'm telling you DON'T come to Arizona.
If you do, you will get haboobed! ("...a type of intense sandstorm commonly observed in arid regions throughout the world.") You'll be picking sand out of your ferndoc for months.
So wait til October. See ya then, friend.

I saw Bob solo for a Seva benefit years ago... a great Blackbird is my best memory
I hope I get a chance to see him again soon.
Somehow Austin has been overlooked for a loooonnggg time. Too long. I think the last time was a ratdog show in like 2001?? Ten years??? too DAMN LONG!!!
and you may correct me if I'm wrong.
What I remember about that show (actually two things besides the excellence of the show itself) was running into bob and some gorgeous blond in the parking garage after the show.... like late night. And then a couple hours later, I was in jail for a roach which was found in the ashtray of a car we were TOWING!! Paid off the small town Texas judge the next morning and made on back to Arcata with the car a couple days later. good times for sure.
PLEASE, PLEASE Bobby come to NY!! There's a great, intimate venue called the Boulton Center in Bay Shore, NY (Long Island) that Bill Kreutzman played at last fall - would be an awesome place for you to strut your stuff (and it doesn't hurt that it's right up the block from me!!)!
I sorta thought the West coast was closer ... but maybe he's bored of playing out here :)
Anyway, not many concerts can get me out of the house these days, but for Bob solo I'd go. Recently giving heavy spin to the Weir/Wassmeran CD [remember that?] ... always enjoyed his solo albums
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BOB, come back to Las Vegas! We need some shows that have REAL musicians, not this dance pop crap, think Lady Gaga! Come on Bob, we miss you, we love you, and we want to jam with ya here in 'Vegas!
"Think damnit think"
Was maybe a bad idea. Seeing the TRIday the 13th webcast nudged me toward, maybe not a bad idea at all. Rock on, Bob!
