We've got a lot going on this episode, so let's dive right in! Jed Luckless is our guest this week. Jed is a jamband fan living in New York and performs a live stream on Wednesday's that you can find here. He play's jamband music and also performs some of his original tunes, one of which he debuts at the end of this podcast so make sure to stay to the finish. Big news this week was the announcement and onsale of the Four Mile Canyon Revival Benefit show. This show is set to provide funding for the Boulder Mountain Fire Relief Fund after the devastating fire in Boulder, CO. Artists to perform include, The String Cheese Incident, Big Head Todd & The Monsters, Yonder Mountain String Band, and the members of Phish. Funny enough the members of Phish are not "billed" as Phish, but rather just their names which leads us to believe they will come out and jam separately but not actually perform as Phish. Tickets went onsale through Ticket Horse and it seems a lot of tickets were held back as the sellout was instantaneous. Score one for the promoters to keep these benefit tickets out of the hands of scalpers.
Our ticket check this week reveals that the Broomfield shows in CO are actually leading the way for the most expensive secondary market ticket. Kind of a shock seeing as all the buzz is around the Halloween weekend in Atlantic City but then again they are basically the only "west coast" shows.
Next up we discuss the ability for people to connect with each other with ease thanks to technology. It's funny when you think back a few years when twitter and Facebook didn't really exist how easy it is to connect with other people, especially famous people and musicians now, it's like day and night. Case in point, Furthur has started tweeting out pictures of their set lists after their shows so fans can take a look at what they were thinking before the show started. Pretty cool if you ask us.
It's not too often that something good comes from the message boards on PT but this weekend there was a thread that was pure gold. It's all about a parody on the Bud Light commercials "Real Men of Genius", except this version is all about wooks. Check it out and also take a listen as Steve tries his best to recreate one of these commercials on air.
We also have a tweetup planned for the Atlantic City shows, you don't have to be on twitter to sign up. Check out the details here, it's being held at a super classy joint. ; )
As always we run through your voicemails, thank you everyone who left us a lot report, keep them coming! We'll see you next week on lot!
