WaveyBlue knows what's going on. I always buy from Grimey's when I'm in Nashville, which is the majority of the time. It really is a great store. When I'm stuck in southern Indiana suburbia (during the summer and on breaks), I either wait until i make my next trip to nashville, or I buy at Coconuts...

Well done with rolling out the red carpet, Lord Balfour. I'll help myself to some of your fine French brandy. Please make yourself at home, Slim Chance. It's pretty damn cool that The Long Winters have such a diverse fan base! I asked John who he thought was their "typical" fan and he said some thir...

Oh wow! YOu guys are awesome. I guess The Long Winters' fans have more than the Otters in common. We've got books too! I'm currently reading the God of Small Things and I got Eco's Baudolino on my night stand as the next up. Thanks for the tips about Hamilton's biography (yeah, he's the most brillia...

Am I the only one who thinks John looks great without glasses? I thought so too, during a quite lull when the camera panned in for a closeup of his profile. But the guitar playing was gorgeous! I startled the kids in the next class coz I let loose a scream worthy of a tween fan at a boy band show!!...

That's interesting that you say that, because when I saw them last saturday, I would almost venture to say the Decemberists outplayed TLW, which I know might be blasphemy on this board, but they really had me floored. I didn't show up until after the Places had already played. Oh, the heresy! Where...

Thanks, Russ! I think you got it all. I wrote out the setlist on my arm after the show but by the time I got home, it's all smudged. It was an awesome show. I'm still in a happy mood from it. Good to see the river otters of rock so sleek after almost 3 whole months of straight touring. Thank you thr...

Hey mms . Is it really a guitar? It sounds like some kind of keyboard on record, but I may be wrong, of course. Maybe someone could set the record straight... Erm... you're probably right (because I'm practically tone deaf). It has always sounded like a bass guitar, but now that I've listened to it...

You guys are awesome! Thanks for the plug, Chelsea. I'll be going to 3rd & Lindsley to check out the cute little Norwegian boy tomorrow night. I don't like going to a concert "cold" (i.e., never listened to the performer's songs before) Any other Nashvillians up for that? Sunshine, Minnie, Wavey? An...

but some of the finer arrangements of the songs were missed, like the intros in "Blue Diamonds" or "Scared Straight", wich I kind of didn't recognize at the start without the horns part.
