Having turned in fairly early after the previous evening's Mount Shasta visit, we were primed and ready to crush the drive to Mountain View. Before leaving town, we got breakfast burritos at a shop manned by a guy on the verge of a caffeine overdose, and started on the drive.... Continue reading

It's always great when, while on Phish tour, the fun that's had *outside* the show is substantial enough to make the show itself seem like the cherry on top instead of the whole damn cake. However, it's also even *better* when the show itself doesn't suck donkey balls, as night... Continue reading

Summer breeze, makes me feel fine Blowing through the jasmine in my mind. --Seals and Crofts Well, summer's here, and you know what that means - time to stuff every available nook and cranny with ungodly amounts of fun until it gets uncomfortable. And then cram some more. Time to... Continue reading

[All hail Metz. Also, all hail this Metz tee shirt, which is appropriate to wear absolutely nowhere.] ------ OK, I gotta get this one done quick - the stamps have let me out of my cage just long enough for me to stretch my legs and get a drink of... Continue reading

[My hero...] We're approximately 40% of the way through 2015, and nary an album review to be found on this sadly neglected, mildewed, has-been of a blog. At the time of this writing, we're finally in the thick of summer; a summer which will be characterized by oodles upon oodles... Continue reading

For the uninitiated (heh), Haunted Hearts are a collaboration between indiepop power couple Brandon Welchez of Crocodiles and Dee Dee from Dum Dum Girls. This is not the first time the married couple has consummated a musical union; I had the pleasure of catching Dee Dee adding background vocals at... Continue reading

[That's right! PELICANS!!] So, my last MiYEMless writeup may have come across as more than a little bitter and whiny, and I'm OK with that. After all, I had only fled Miami mere hours before I typed that one up, and the foul taste that that city left in my... Continue reading

[Miami really rolled out the red carpet for Phish and the Phans, renaming many longstanding, venerable local businesses to include Phish references. Many thanks to the Miami Chamber of Commerce for making us feel right at home!] ------ MERRY NEW YEAR!! I had been hoping to update this blog daily... Continue reading

[Above is the top Google image search result for MiYEMi at the time of this writing.] Well, day two of my New Years Run '14 voyage has begun, and, naturally, the most notable thing about day one was that I did *not* see Phish perform. So what *did* happen yesterday... Continue reading

Heheheheheheh. Ah, 2014: another year where I tell myself 'this is the year my obsessive show-going addiction ends;' another year where I see more shows than anyone I know who isn't employed at a performance space / venue. WHEEEEEEEEE!!!! A quick list of locations where I've seen shows this year:... Continue reading

1.) The War on Drugs - Lost in the Dream An outstanding rock record in an era when such things are increasingly rare. Although Adam Granduciel's Tom Petty fetish is obvious throughout Lost in the Dream, he exhibits an uncanny ability to avoid sounding clicheed in a domain that seemingly... Continue reading

Band of the Year - Phish 'Nuff said (see above.) ------ Vocal Performance of the Year: Sharon Van Etten "Sir, may I offer you some honey with your barbed wire?"
