    J Mascis & the Fog were playing a series of full band electric shows in cities along the US Westcoast, it was the first tour of the Fog with the new lineup:

    J Mascis (git, voc, JMascis.com)
    Dave Schools (b, from Widespread Panic)
    and Kyle Spence (dr, from The Tom Collins).

    Geez, I just learnt (at jmascis.com) that in Portland The Fog will be supported by none other than the mighty Halo Bender Calvin Johnston AND ALSO Mirah! This is so not fair, I mean it’s hard enough to stomach that it’s been 3 1/2 years since the last full blown J Mascis band shows in Germany, and I’ve never seen Mirah live, and,… I just realized this rant is going nowhere. Anyways, J: Get on a plane ( a JET PLANE von mir aus!) and bring your band and some amazing support bands/acts like the ones mentioned above and come to Germany! Also, what’s with the new album? What the Schnitzel, awcmonnoyoucmon!

    thanks for the update, Barton, I took All Night Radio off the news here.
    …must be hard for a band to suddenly break up, when a tour already is planned :(

    Well rambleon, I have decided they must have no hardcore fans. :?
    Although at the last 40Watt show I met some fans, big J fans, who had never heard of the Freakscene web site.

    Washington State and Oregon, You have been declared LAME by me until further notice.

    OMG< I can’t believe I just wrote that, that sounds so 9th grade.

    BUT IT IS TRUE, I hope California can show out a little better.

    Isn’t OSX from California?

    how ya doin…
    jus got back from the show @ slims and i’m sure my ears will be rotatin fer days-
    didnt know all the songs which is cool but the standouts fer me were:
    ‘get me’ &
    ‘alone’
    what magnificent displays of guitar wizzardree…
    it seemed j had no probs workin w/ equipment that werent hiz-or were it?
    i didnt see the normal shitload of amps and speaker cabs-so maybe some of that <fender> guitar into <fender> amp sound wuz amissin, but it still sounded good 2 mee and thats a good thing.
    cant wait fer more&more…
