I’m heading out to Northampton in a couple hours — I used to live there, and it’s nice to have a Dino gig as an excuse to go back and see some folks. A full report on the show will follow.
If anyone is going to the show tonight from out of town, I highly recommend the East Side Grill for dinner, which is on the same block as Pearl Street. It’s a Cajun/Creole style restaurant with lots of great seafood dishes and a fine raw bar.
Can’t wait to hear to hear "Tarpit," though it’ll have to be a mighty, mighty fine rendition to top the one J played with the Fog in Baltimore last fall.July 12, 2005 at 10:13 am #110876

Goddamn, was that an amazing show! I’ve never seen J flailing away at his guitar and jumping around like he did/was during "Mountain Man." It was insane. The sound was excellent, with about a 100 different textures coming out of J’s stacks throughout the night. He blew two of three heads about a third of the way into the set, but the crew took care of everything really quickly. No "Tarpit," though. Hopefully they’ll play it in NYC and/or Boston. A totally inspiring experience all around, though I’m half dead today after all the beer and Jaagermeister and smoke. Those guys rule, plain and simple.July 13, 2005 at 12:29 pm #110883
Oh yeah, and it occurred to me during the show that J’s guitar outro to "The Lung" sounds — in a couple places — remarkably like the opening riff to GBH’s "City Baby’s Revenge." I know J’s a GBH fan, and the other guys probably are, too. It would be totally sick if they would segue from "The Lung" into a version of "City Baby." Lou could sing it.July 13, 2005 at 1:13 pm #110884
A GBH reference! I used to party with them everytime they hit NYC! Now I have to fish that album out.July 13, 2005 at 1:52 pm #110885"NCDan" wrote:A GBH reference! I used to party with them everytime they hit NYC! Now I have to fish that album out.
I just saw them at the Bowery Ballroom last Friday. They’re still as fun and shambolic as ever — before opening with "Race Against Time" they passed a bowl around the stage to get properly geared up, and Colin still climbs all over the PA speakers and jumps off from heights dangerous for a drunk 42 year-old. Classic band.July 13, 2005 at 7:03 pm #110886
