It's good to be the freak and to be in its presence.  Without it, what else do we have except all that is not freak.  That's for the rest of the week but Deadstein seeks to be the freak.   Brrrrp!

It was a great night, so much going on.   All were in town including Larry M., Donny H. and the rest of the freaky entourage.

It was Dave's birthday show and he made a strong setlist and due to his tremendous catering and impeccable timing, we played lots of music with time to spare.   A beautifully coordinated evening.


It's Good To Be The Freak

The Box of Rain was just superbly played.  As good as the music was, and it was great, we keep rising to a higher level and this Trister stuff certainly doesn't hurt, the food deserves discussion.

Katz Deli was the order for the night and we had a great buffet of kosher style delicacies.  The best pastrami in the world was complimented by fair corned beef.  Brisket was good.  Knish and fries are about as good as you get.   I would be psyched to find a better knish if it's out there.  There's better corned beef but no one touches Katz' pastrami.  Dave really pulled the big one and they also delivered.  Love that stuff.  Hot dogs, Dr. Browns, buckets of ice and pickles, a Rye Bread!  Unbelievable and Dave deserves a lot of credit.  Save that order slip!

Got other work to do, I gave it a go for old times sake but someone else can fill in the blanks becuase there were lots of great moments worthy of mention.

I heard a DJ on WNEW today state that she was at the Page/Plant show last night and that it was the concert of the century. The best she has ever seen. I guess she wasn't at Grateful Dead 4/14/82, Glenn's Falls. Anyone can play a Whole Lotta Love well a thousand times but only the Dead can play a Rooster well once, thereby making it ultra special to catch. Just my prejudiced 2 cents.

Good Deadstein. King David advised his loyal subjects that he will cater their meal on his birthday jam. King David delivers. So does King Katz. Whew!! My brisket, pastrami, po tato salad combo was tremendous. Donny Hutcher talked up the Royal British Rock Symphony with Roger Daltrey. The next day, Scotty, Hutch and I took in the show at Radio City. A half hour into it, I was still skeptical about how good this was going to get. But once they finished their cheesy medleys and got into actual songs with Roger singing my mind got blown. My personal highlight was You Better You Bet. What happens when I say "I Love You?" You say, "You better, you better, you bet!" We owned that place. The third balcony is the way to go at RCMH. You don't get the cramped feel of a low ceiling like you get in the first or second balconies. The tickets are always cheapest up there. Also, if the show doesn't sell out, you get ample dancing room. I saw Page/Plant at the Garden last night. Now I know what it was like to go to a Beatles concert. That audience was incredibly loud. Adoring their rock and roll heroes. Early on, the sound was not good. Very muddy, bassy. But once they got into the softer tunes, things got more discernable. A rip-roaring show indeed. Closer : Whole Lotta Love Encores : Black Dog, Rock and Roll.

See you next time.

Wow and Wow and Wow. Dave has certainly set the standard for birthday celebrations. I am glad he finally let us chip in for that incredible feast. Did anyone really think there would be leftovers. Now on to the music. Box was great almost album quality. Nice lead by LB. China Rider in all it's glory, just when you think it's rider AT turns it up a notch and the whole room is vibrating with the cosmos, then the Dew this is also mighty, good body of the song, LB pulls of the climb pretty clean then the final jam explodes in a symphony of guitars, great team work. Other one and eyes are next and solid. While my guitar features AT on an acoustic(nice touch) and some "Chicago-like" soloing by LB. Loser with AT on the acoustic features awful singing as always but great guitars. AT adds an extra lead that rips but forces one more "last fair deal. Cumberland totally smokes, the playin has some nice exploration before it reprises and Mission is always nice. Many happy returns to Mr. Schwartz and let's all do it again next week.

We should really get some Darwinian research scientist down here to do a real-time study of our evolving, living, breathing, growing, multi-celled organism; Deadstein (Freakasaurus Rex). It is a textbook illustration of how a creature can adapt in order to survive, and most importantly, succeed. We got it all; gills, lungs, prehensile tail, opposable thumbs, binocular vision, penis. I was standing in the middle of it, participating in it, and I still was shocked by the sonic energy we were producing. It is more than a good thing. This weeks jam featured Big Dave's Birthday celebration, and it did not disappoint. It was freaky-festive. Highlights included: TheHutch, who is always a welcome sight at Deadstein function. Little LarryB and his stool (bad back). Trister and an acoustic guitar. A 3-way call from Matt Gibson in sleepaway camp. Big Dave's babe. Bill. Big Deli ('nuff said). And of course the world famous Freakboy and his can't-say-enough-about-it dress. Boy, can that kid dance! He broke it out during the ChinaRider and laid on us an especially freaky routine. It included a move where his glasses go flying off his face and he dances blind unable to find them on the floor. I was dying. It was an enjoyable performance, to say the least. I can't wait till next week to see if Deadstein grows a blow-hole.
