So that's what they were singing. Nothing like kicking off your opening set with an unintelligible 10 minute droner. That was a really weird song. IMO.


I thought Don Chambers himself was really charismatic. (Although the song in question might've had Nick Cave consulting his attorneys). The challenge for me with DC's band was that the drummer, IMO, was just not very good. Played basically the same rhythm for every song, with little dynamics, and when he DID have a "moment" (a big drum roll, followed by a crash), it was just...off. Lost the beat entirely. Really puzzling, since the rest of the band was very, very good. But that for me was an impediment to really digging DC's set.

I think that I focused in on one of the backup singers. I had heard of Don Chanbers (Goat), but the first song wasn’t what I was expecting!

I think I joined 9B in 2004/2005 which it hadn't dawned on me was 15 fucking years ago. There's been a multitude of names and faces in that time that have come and gone, but just the fact that there are so many of us still here and together in that moment was a beautiful epiphany.


So occupationally I’m often writing, but y’all are some articulate mofos! I’ve read so many good synopses which summarized many of my thoughts of last weekend. While I appreciate so many of the posts, I’m always impressed by BBubba’s ability to compose thoughts at 4am! I believe that I met a few new faces this year, but so many of you have become old friends. I don’t know if my first homecoming shows will ever be topped for me, but I’ve enjoyed forging deeper friendships each year since. I’m not even going to attempt to name names, but Smitty, I believe that I recall late Saturday night you standing a person or two in front of me, and our eyes meeting (you mentioned looking back in your post). I think I was having similar thoughts. I looked around most nights and just felt extremely thanksful to be surrounded by so many wonderful people.

I hope not too many of you had the crud. I came home feeling pretty well. Other than scheduled 3DD events and the shows (and awesome meals) Bryan and I rested. I felt pretty well on Monday and on Tuesday morning but by the evening I was sick. I’m on the mend now...and consider it a small price to pay for the fun that I had.

Speaking of which I have time to write now because my wife left me at home with the kids so that she could play cards with our friends...agian small price (she had the kids all last weekend—which of course started Wednesday)!

Love y’all! How much longer till February 2020???

After avoiding it the last three years, I got a good case of the Homecoming Crud. Started on Wednesday and it's been kicking my ass since. Totally worth it though.

Lol. My reaction as well, Clams. 'Cause I had no idea. Having seen Don open for the Truckers before I had some idea of what to expect so it didn't throw me off like it might normally would have. It was a weird song and a weird way to start a set. Not bad. Just weird. Mad Mike liked it a lot and kept referring to "the song where they were saying something about the ocean.". I just went along with it. One thing is for sure, Don was into it. Big time. And even if it ain't exactly my cup of tea I definitely appreciate that.
We're supposed to be a small but determined fringe element. Let's act like it.

Reflecting on the weekend, I think we need to address jonicont's "winning" the handwritten PH lyrics at the Hangout gathering. I've heard rumors that he froze his ticket before placing it in the bin to make it easier to pick, much like the NY Knicks did in the 1985 NBA lottery so they could draft Patrick Ewing. Come to think of it, jonicont was living in NYC in 1985. Hmmm.

I overdid my still new to me vape pen and was incredibly stoned during Jay's set Wednesday night. The disco ball was going the whole set. I would occasionally get myopically focused on the stage and then flinch when the lights came toward me. Fortunately I found it funny instead of going and hiding in the corner or something. Good fucking times!

I started Wednesday night with an indica cartridge I'd never used before. It was potent and awesome. In fact, there was only about a quarter of the gram left by weekend's end.

My friend and I rented a little bungalow on Pulaski for this year’s HC. On the day that we arrived, they started clear cutting the lot directly across the street. Rumor has it that they are building a Piggly Wiggly or something. Anyway, I guess the commotion stirred up all the vermin that were living on that hill. What came next really set the tone for the week. A giant owl took up residence on the power lines right in front of our house. Every evening he would take his perch and wait silently for prey to emerge. He would then swoop down and return to his perch to devour his meal right in front of us and repeat several times. Watching that owl during our nightly pregame ritual was something we will never forget. It was symbolic of departed loved ones, new friends, DBT and the music we love so much. Unreal.

Couple other highlights:
Wednesday night was just plain fun. Jay was tremendous and the after party at Flickr was great. I ended up getting into a strange debate with some other drunk about which bathroom would become available next while we were waiting in line. It was a ridiculous conversation. I didn’t realize until that next night that it was Don Chambers!

Fried chicken, collards and mid-morning cocktails at the upstairs bar in The Place.

Friday afternoon hangout is always great. I enjoy it so much. This year was even better because I ran into an old friend that I didn’t even know was going to be there. I also enjoyed meeting the “Steve McQueen” guy. He and his wife are great. Kind of pissed DBT didn’t play Steve McQueen now that I’m thinking about it.

Of course the music. Friday night was the show for me. The SRO tease, Margo and Harold, The Southern Thing… Not to mention World of Hurt which I can never seem get enough of. It was almost more than I could handle!

Only a couple low points. Massive but short lived hangover on Thursday. I still come out of the gate a little hard even after all these years. Long drive home on 85N. That highway was definitely mean! Oh yeah, Babies in Cages. Don’t like it, never will. Oh well.

It’s truly fucking great to be alive!

So Bryan and I stayed at the Holiday Inn this year, because we couldn’t find anything else. We liked the HI, and my wife actually booked us a room for Valentine’s weekend 2020 at the HI after she found a room for under $100. The HI may have been slightly more expensive than the courtyard, but we saved significantly on Uber’s. Normally we uber back from shows, but the HI was so close that we didn’t need uber.

I’d enjoy the camaraderie of the Days, but I don’t think I can talk Bryan into it. One of the HI highlights for me this year was meeting Cole’s folks outside the workout room and learning his mom grew up in the same area as I did! Small world!

HOMECOMING THURSDAY NIGHT


I started to post this in the "what are you listening to" thread, but I think it belongs here.

I downloaded all the shows right after they were up, but I put off listening until tonight to give it some space. This year was only my 5th Homecoming and I posted previously that this year was a solid #1 for me.

Hearing it again, I realize that it wasn't just bias of what I saw most recently. Every time you think this band has hit the ceiling of what's possible, they come back out and blow your mind all over again.

Thursday was a surprise of rarities. Friday was "oh holy shit, are they gonna keep going on SRO"? Going into Saturday was "they haven't played 'this' or 'this' or 'this' ----- oh hell, they're gonna burn down the fucking house." And then they did.

I'd love to see the HC setlist look like this forever---this is when the hardcore fans have come from all over the continent and beyond. Mix it up crazy the first two nights and leave you knowing your face is gonna melt Saturday.

You nailed it. This year was our 8th and it was my favorite. The incredibly high level they managed to hit all 4 nights was something to see...and hear again on the recordings. I can't wait until next year's fundraiser to get Thursday night on Blu-Ray!

I got asked a question today in the form of a statement: ""Tell me about a favourite ritual". I was just going to write a sentence, but I kept adding comments, and here's what I finally said:

After a great rock show or other event, I keep the wristbands on till they fall off.

We have Drive-By Truckers Homecoming at the 40 Watt, where the coat checkers write the number of your item on your wristband with a Sharpie. I play with the numbers, whether they're in order, whether the order is rising or falling, how they factor, what they might signify. This year, I got:
168--the hours in a week
93--the passengers who fought back
111--a sixth of the way there

It also lets me have some idea where I was in line each time. ;-)

In the days after that in particular, I play with the wristbands, stacking them on my wrist, in date order sometimes, but really in whatever order they fit my arm best, the largest furthest up, each other slid under the next largest, a little showing of each.

They'd last longer if I didn't, but then, so would I.
The sooner we put those assholes in the grave&piss on the dirt above it, the better off we'll be
