    The Live Music Thread

    I've been going through some of my concert ticket stubs because Claire has a spreadsheet of many shows we/she/I have seen and I want to expand it. One of the earliest ones that I still have made me feel good inside and stirred some memories of several very cool concerts at UC Davis while I was an undergrad there. For example, I saw the Talking Heads on campus on December 5, 1983. Think Big Suit, suburban home set, Speaking In Tongues tour, all just one week before Jonathan Demme filmed the same show in Los Angeles. I also saw the infamous Replacements show, such as it was, in the tiny UC Davis Coffee House. They were so drunk they could barely perform a song, and soon after they started they literally fled the stage, ran out of the venue, and never returned. Apparently, somebody told them that the cops were after them and were about to raid the show. Not accurate but fucked over us fans even more than their shitty performance. I also saw both of those bands subsequently (with another Replacements screw up of our own doing) but the ticket stub is for the one and only time I saw the late great Stevie Ray Vaughn, with Double Trouble. It was an epic show in Freeborn Hall on campus (now also gone), and it was everything any SRV fan could imagine. I found the awesome set list online and the bootleg of the whole show that I will be listening to later. Voodoo Child (Slight Return) You Done Lost Your Good Thing Now Honey Bee Mary Had a Little Lamb Love Struck Baby Tin Pan Alley Cold Shot Couldn't Stand the Weather Texas Flood Lenny Stang's Swang Rude Mood All of that for $10.50! Hard to imagine these days. Claire actually puts the price of the tickets on her spreadsheet, which is fascinating. Anyway, I love thinking back on this stuff, and I'm glad I kept some momentos to remind me.

    Tidal v. Qobuz?

    I dropped Tidal because I don't do enough critical listening through it and Claire had a Spotify family plan already. I might try the 30 day trial for the hell of it.

    What are you EATING right now?

    Burger at Fifty Fifty Brewing: half pound beef with jalapeños and honey cream cheese. Sweet, spicy, delicious, to use the Mikey three word tasting notes style.

    Fuck in snow

    Literally tons of snow everywhere in Tahoe. Tomorrow or Tuesday should be ideal on the slopes, assuming forecasts are correct and it stops falling.
  8. I came across this band drinking in Tahoe City, not streaming, but you can check them out by streaming if you wish. Pronounced krung-bin, obviously.

    Yum. I wish I had some for this long weekend in Tahoe, assuming we can actually make it up there.

    I appreciated it.

    RIP some fuck or another

    Another baseball great is gone. Frank Robinson was MVP in both leagues, was the first African American manager in the MLB, Giants manager in a tough/sad period, and is in the Hall of Fame obviously. Fuck bone cancer twice. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.sfchronicle.com/giants/amp/Frank-Robinson-SF-Giants-manager-and-baseball-13598394.php
