Pete and I saw Tedeshi-Trucks Band last night. They put on an excellent show in a little local theatre.
They covered a Joe Cocker cover and blew the roof off.

The drummers did a version of this last night, but better.

One more.
Sonia Kitchel openned with a kind of Americana set of well constructed tunes.



She has a fascinating voice.

Do virtual concerts count? Cause I got to see the opening concert of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra this year. Live. I love technology sometimes

The problem with virtual venues is they are too close to the refrigerator/pantry.

Griff, that's the perfect combination. A good or better band that isn't so big you can predict their play list, in a small venue where you can see them work, but more comfortable and less noisy than a club. It's hard to find that combination outside of a few college towns.

Griff - it was really cool. Found out that you can play violins like ukuleles

Bruce - Luckily, I was at work, so it just took up one of my computer monitors. No extraneous snacking :P

You didn't say that there was an old gray LumberJim at the show as well.

The vids aren't from my show but damned if that ain't Lumberjim from the future catching one of the few shows he missed.

The tuning is the same as a mandolin...

Despite the recent hit piece in the New York Times, Binghamton is becoming a quality college town.

I actually started typing a pretty long one out, but found myself lacking the words to describe it. So I deleted several paragraphs. How do you write about music anyway? It was the best concert I've been to. I laughed, I almost cried, and I sat enhanced listening to him play.
