Next Jam:Thursday, June 12 1997
Notes:
  • Jerry CartoonStandard arrangement, Jonathan was there and Brotman is still MIA.
  • This was the first jam since we knew that Jerry's birthday, on August 1st, is to be Eviction Day from our beloved studio. We were determined to play hard and long while sacrificing our hedonistic eating barrage. Well needless to say, we sacrificed in a poor manner by accepting deli ychhchh but we did play hard. We played like we were never going to play again. With real meaning. We kept tempos as strong as we ever have. We played with meaning more so than ever. Unfortunately, we never made it through a tiny food break after the Deal. It's okay because it was a very satisfying evening as we played as well as ever. Menaker didn't like it.
  • I have to give Kevin credit for assembling a very powerful set. I've been giving him shit for incoherent juxtaposition of songs recently but he turned it around this week.
First Set Comments:
  • Larry Brent CartoonWe played the Rooster like we weren't going to get to play again. We are getting good at that song.
  • Sailor Saint was good for how we do it. A little more practice we'll be good at it. Too bad we are running out of time. Tick-Tock Tick-Tock.
  • The Jack-a-Roe groove was fast from the start and maintained really well. We really sustained a bopping be throughout the entire song.
  • Playing was nice. Original, free flowing but with a purpose. It transitioned fairly into Let it Grow.
  • Someone said the Let it Grow was rusty. Well, there may have been a ferric crust on it, but it still shined from underneath.
  • The Liberty was great, almost flawless with a great beat.
  • Greatest Story was pretty well done. Powerful and accurate.
  • The Deal went down. What are you going to do?
Half Time Comments:
  • There was no half time to speak of. The food encompassed various sporadic deli trips. Unorganized and unappetizing, we preparing ourselves for the future.
Weather:
  • CloudsThe weather was beautiful
  • It was a comfortable spring day.
  • We shall never write about cold weather at Ganesvoort again.
