Rocky Mountain high, Colobrahdo. I think it's safe to say we're all on a high after the weekend's tour closers in Colorado. This week's show title is not only a nod to the "S" show on September 2nd, but it also stands for Steve Squared since that's who we have on the mics this go round. S2 share their thoughts on the streams, from quality and connectivity to how they actually enjoyed them. Sounds like Uno had the more epic watching party.
With all the raging that went down at Dick's this past weekend we can't believe there was not one single voicemail. Come on! You guys know we sit by the phone eagerly awaiting each call. Ok, maybe not, but we do look forward to hearing from the field. You gotta call in the lot reports!
In the news this week, Umph is about to tear down NYC with a 4 night run at Brooklyn Bowl. Despite its very Brooklyn crowd, BK Bowl is one of TWoL's favorite venues. I mean, bowling and live music? Duh!
Earlier in the year we reported that Langerado was ready to get back on the horse, but as it turns out that horse won't run. With very little details actually know at this time, they have released a statement simply saying that they've had to cancel the fest for this year and refunds would be available. Bummer.
In two other tidbits, a "lost" Jon Fishman interview surfaced in CO this weekend. A freelance writer submitted it to the Denver Westword as a new interview, but it turns out it was a Relix interview from 1996.
KDTU is getting in on some musical costume action this fall, announcing an October run that will have them covering the classic Rolling Stones album "Sticky Fingers." The tour will feature members of Slightly Stoopid as well as a show with Rose Hill Drive where RHD will cover "Who's Next" by The Who. Funktacular.
Finally this week, we start a new piece titled "What I learned this summer." While escaping hurricane Irene at a festival, Toonces put down some thoughts to wrap up the summer season. Look for our other hosts to share their insights in upcoming episodes.
Have a great week and GO SEE LIVE MUSIC!!!
