Re: Who's Everyone Seeing Live?

I caught Lily Hiatt open for the Old 97's at a club called Durty Nellies in the Chicago suburbs last Saturday night. There are times that people hype artists on here that I just don't share the same passion with. I do like Lily Hiatt's studio album quite a bit, but our crew had purchased tickets to ...

Re: RIP Gord Downie (Tragically Hip)

Rest in Power Gord.
My condolences to all of Canada today in the loss of such a treasure.

Art continues to imitate life and that last Canadian tour was an epic way to go out. The Living Bubba indeed.

Re: Just an observation...

How does it look, though, for a "new" Jason fan to start digging through his back catalog, search out some DBT discussion sites (here, Facebook, etc.), only to see us bashing on Jason fans? Wouldn't that turn you off to DBT forever? All I'm saying is that we look like dicks, which is ironic since w...

Re: Just an observation...

I feel like this board is overly sensitive about Isbell's new fanbase. Who the fuck cares? Part of the concert experience is coming together with like minded people over the music you all love. There isn't much like minded between the new Isbell crowd and the DBT crowd, so attending a Jason show la...

I believe they both should be. As much of a deserved critics darling as they have been since OK Computer, Radiohead is a no doubter. Does Rage get held out due to their genre of music is less friendly and that their catalog wasn't that extensive? We'll see.

Rock and Roll didn't get much better than Tom Petty. The guy wrote so many great songs.
