Grisman & Avetts at Chicago Bluegrass & Blues

What's up guys, I just wanted to give everyone a heads up about the inaugural Chicago Bluegrass & Blues festival, this 11/22 at the historic Congress Theater, all benefiting the Saving Tiny Hearts Societies fight against the country's most common birth defect.

The first 10 folks that hit me up at will get a pair of tickets mailed to them. We're excited for you to help us spread the word about this righteous endeavor

The Doors, 8/3/68

..." one man gone and another to go..." During Soul Kitchen, Jim morrison shouted out he'd like another cigarette, and good golly, packs of smokes began FLYING up onstage. Setlist was rather short:
Cleveland Public Auditorium

Break On Through
Back Door Man
Five To One
When The Music's Over
Vast Radiant Beach
Krieger's Solo
The Royal Sperm
When The Music's Over
Soul Kitchen
Light My Fire

Jim was dressed in tight black leather pants and was animated throughout the show, not quite as much as Mick Jagger, but still very captivating.

That would be great marye

Excellent idea. Would love to read the thoughts of those that made it to the show. Reading the announcment of the show, builds a kind of magical longing and anticipation,not unlike actually having tickets. The houghts of people that went would be priceless.

oh man...

that woulda been just lovely.

As for Branford, I didn't know where else to put it, even though it's in the future! Maybe we need a new topic for Other Bands in the Future...

Crosby Nash

The Crosby Nash show at zellerbach at uc berkeley was beautiful. The wind on the water tour in 1975 with a young Danny Kortchmar, Russel Kunkel, Leeland Sklaar and the inimitable David Lindley. What a show. Carol King and James Taylor joined them. I remember walking around the campus after the show knowing that was something special in a very special place. I was just a puppy at the time and the thrill of trip to the bay area from sacramento for concerts was a magical experiance I have still not gotten over.
ps - That Branford Marsalis shows sounds just wonderful. Should have stayed in sf longer!
