Slight correction: a friend tells me he thinks they can squeeze 300 into the Colony without tables on the floor. Still, by far the smallest place (besides Levon's barn) that I've ever seen them play. Curious about how they're going to handle the sound in my hometown venue.

Does Erika Wennerstrom have a band or is she solo?

She's a five-piece band for this tour: Herself, guitar, bass, drums, backing vocalist. The guitarist has something interesting going on. I liked this a lot better than I liked the Heartless Bastards.

Whatcha mean by "something interesting"?

I thought she was incredible and pretty sexy.
It's got a rotten view, but the ice is free.

I didn't want to think about that with my kid present, because--little as I want to face it--the kid would have had the shot I wouldn't have but, thank goodness, doesn't know it yet.

What I meant by it was that one song where she played a very sparse line in back of the vocal and then did this super interesting complicated little lick that--I think--kept changing every time she hit it to mark the end of a line. That particular thing really stood out for me. It showed a level of taste and restraint I admired greatly. It seemed special.

Yeah, I thought the guitar player was great(and kind of sexy). I liked Heartless Bastards but this was a better band and the songs were strong. Had a chance to talk to Erika after the show, one of my customer's wives was her drummer back about 15 years ago so I sent along their greetings. She could not have been nicer. I bought the vinyl and am going to try to spin it tonight.

I was,and still, am a fan of the Heartless Bastards but think her latest solo record is the best record she ever put put. Delighted to hear she is performing with a band. Going to see her and DBT on Friday at the Brooklyn Bowl and might show up on Thursday after going to another show.

If two rock shows take place in Toronto and no one posts about them, did they really happen?

I assume TO is still a DBT stronghold, but it also used to be a 3dd stronghold. Where is everyone. April Twister? Ponygirl? A whole bunch of others whose screennames are not coming to me immediately but i know you're out there somewhere.

Toronto was the only show where I saw DBT actually brought back for a second encore. Those Canadians were LOUD!!! Bubba--weren't you there with me?
Always go to the show

Tickets are $50.00 for general admission (or $75.00 for "Limited Reserved VIP Balcony Seating"). Though I would, I've never paid that much to see DBT.

I wish I could go; it should be fantastic!
