    We decided to play on Monday night so we could all get out there and vote on Election Day Tuesday. Overall, I have to say the night was below average. Not every jam can be above average, it's the law of averages. I had trouble getting my right wrist moving and Kevin was having unusual physical problems in moving his hands in addition to his typical mental problems. Kevin was challenged to see how long he could make set lists up without repeating any songs. We will see how long it can last.

    Remember, we play next Monday

    First Set:

    The Truckin' started well carried it's own through a very hot jam. We reprised into a vocal and had another surprisingly smooth transition into the Casey Jones. It was a good Jones.

    I thought we had problems getting beats going on several of the following songs. The All Over Now was choppy. The same with the Dupree's. It was so choppy that Kevin wanted to start over but he was refused and forced to join the fray. By the end of the song we were galloping along. The Cassidy was one of the highlights of the night. The song was nice and mellow and the jam was a far out as Deadstein takes it. Testing the Cassidy envelope. Jack-a-Roe was a struggle to complete. Big Railroad blues was pretty solid and moving and ended the mid set lull. Loose Lucy was marginal and so was the rest of the set.

    Second Set:

    The list had an Uncle John's to be played after the Playin' but due to Flourent taking longer than we wanted them to, we had to blow it off. In all, we started the second set around 10:30, leaving only one-half hour to play. It was a tough get up out of food but we made it for four songs. The Playin'' in the Band was pretty interesting eventough it was abbreviated. It thought the Micacle was pretty powerful. The Warf Rat had the most magical feel of any song of the night. There was a cool sound going on during it. It lead into the closer of the evening, back into Playin' in the Band. We faded into playing and got soft, just playing the Playin' riff, over and over again. In a mezmorizing fashon, we all refused to get off of the Playin' riff. As it got cooler and softer Larry B. decided to turn it over.

    At this point you could hear a pin drop Then BAM!. Just as we are about to break out into the Playin' a bug flew into Kevin's nose. He stopped plucking and started picking. I tried to abort the re-entry but it was too late we were destined, with or without Kevin. We finished up for the evening and went on our merry ways.

    What about the entertaining freakshow performed by freakboy himself during the Throwin' Stones / Row Jimmy? Some of freakboy's best all time material was laid down right then and there.

    Freakboy's getting a little testie. I didn't notice the Freak Show. It could not have been his best material.

    Wow, denied by the Gind ! I'll testify. There was some serious freaky dancin' ( the way I like it, and demand it ) going on. I thought it was very good, if not the best , it was extremely long over-due and appreciated. As I see it, there is no reason ( now that the wart is gone ) that we get that caliber of dance every week. C'mon...Twirl !!

    I appreciate the support. However, there have been solid moments of damn good freak dancing since the six-year anniversary and there is documented written evidence on this very site. I will though focus on a more consistent effort.

     Half Time Food:

    Last Monday at Flourent was so good that we tried to duplicate its greatness but it wasn't to be. The order was virtually the same. Larry, Larry and Kevin had standard cheeseburgers. I assume they were good. The French fries were excellent as usual. Once again, I opted for the skirt steak with mashed potatoes and garlicky-greens. It wasn't as good as last week, the staek was smaller and they didn't give me those mashed potatoes I craved. They gave me fries instead. Th fries are great and all but we already had like seven orders so the mashed would have been nice. There was some great french fry, bottom of the barrel grizzle to be had. Jonathan also repeated last weeks special and had the pork tenderloins marsalla, I'm sure it was scrumptious. To top it off, there was pecan pie with their fresh whipped cream. There is a lot of Jack Daniels in that pie. Watch-out! Assorted drinks The Drakes cakes from last week, left on top of the tape decks was there and was enjoyed before the night began.


    Very comfortable in the studio and outside.
