  • Everyone was there and I don't think there were any guests in the room
  • The Official Kevin birthday show.
  • Kevin brought in his Vox Wawa pedal for me to use. It was generally fun, easy to use and enhanced a few things like China Cat, Althea and Scarlet. Unfortunately, I think it ran out of batteries for the second set.
  • We learned of the guy sitting on top of Capitol Hill who is going to sit on it but in Brazilia. He will surely be missed.
  • I was great to see that Admiral took the Dell advantage as was discussed a few weeks earlier.

First Set Comments:

  • Deep Elem had a great choppy groove.
  • Althea was as good as I think we have played it. It was relaxed and it just flowed.

 Half Time Food & Comments:

  • Memphis Trio. Them emphasis was on heroes are they were good.
  • The pizza was good, some say it grew on you but the screened texture on the bottom indicated some sort of new fangled way to cook the pizza was being utilized. It can't be good.
  • I got the second round of desserts including toasted almonds and hostess cup cakes. This was in addition to Johnny's selection of non-chocolate and non-cream filled goodies. He had lots of pound cake going on.

Second Set Comments: Brrp! Ahhh! Help me! Are we really going to play? Boy it's cold in the studio. I want dessert! What are we going to cut out? Shit, I wished I washed my hands. My eye is bulging out of my socket. Damn us to Hell!

  • Dark Star was shorted than expected and we had ten minutes to play and additional song after we finished the Day Job. We chose to go home early instead of playing another song.


  • The temperature was beautiful.

General Comments Talk it up. Be nice. please say something or I will loose my desire to write these things up. Fill in the deatils, the fun little stories that I cannot remember. The little things like Allison calling exactly as the last note of the first set ends


Only hit the "Submit" button once. Not twice! Not thrice at your own risk. I'll give it a 10% chance of working. Sorry but what do you want for nothing!

I thought that the China-Rider, Scarlet, Let It Grow were completely hot. Way to go band.

That picture of Kevy in the Schwartz (Torren) backyard party is surreal. Does everybody see my aerobie hanging in the background?

Hold everything !! Let me just say The Gind is a Fuckin' genius !! That is the coolest picture I've ever seen (not the one of me & Schwartz, doofboy). This is an example of the computer being used to it's fullest potential. The Gind is really tying together all the aspects of being a freak/Deadhead/musician in the 90's. Bravo! Encore! Bravissimo! Thanks to everyone for making this week a successful birthday show for me. We completed the set list with time to spare and were able to fit in all the necessary fun as well. I'm really enjoying our playing and sound lately. LarryB was uncharacteristically loud this week (not a bad thing), and I kinda liked the wawa flavor on The Gind's guitar. I'm still loving my sound. It was good to have the all and only all the essential personnel in attendance this week, it felt really good.
