What observations will you share? 9 Responses to “All-Star Jam” Mr. Moderator says: 06/26/2013 at 7:05 am I see that Devo drummer Alan Myers has died of cancer. He was a unique drummer in a unique band. http://www.slicingupeyeballs.com/2013/06/25/alan-myers-devo-drummer-dies/ 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 06/26/2013 at 7:09 am Andyr, chickenfrank, and sethro: There’s a PUPPET SHOW at Johnny Brenda’s TONIGHT.

This reminded me of our recent discussion of Steve Miller: http://lefsetz.com/wordpress/index.php/archives/2013/06/21/steve-miller-at-the-greek/ 1 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 06/26/2013 at 12:52 pm OMG, I didn’t get that far! 0 High Five ladymisskirroyale says: 06/26/2013 at 7:34 pm I like the first Miracle Legion album! What is the back story on the dis, other than the text is pretty pretentious? 0 High Five ladymisskirroyale says: 06/26/2013 at 8:09 pm This is sort of interesting: http://www.thesagegateshead.org/event/jon-langford-exhibition/ The Mekons were always in to Americana, and it’s interesting to see Langford continue in that direction. Slim Jade had a painting next to one of his at a group show last year; we had hoped that he would make an appearance, but no go. 0 High Five chickenfrank says: 06/26/2013 at 9:12 pm Many years ago Nixon’s Head shared a bill with M.L. at a Philly venue called J.C. Dobbs. We were opening, they were headlining. We were unknown, but they were a slight notch above unknown. Even though they had miniscule cachet, they brought along their giant cut-out animation figures that they needed extra gig time to spend setting up on stage prior to their set. N.H. was having a well received rocking set when we were instructed to wrap it up early to allow Mulcahey and friends to set up what we have since always referred to as his “puppet show”. Grudges die a very slow death in our circle. I’m kidding, grudges never die. The next N.H. release is a concept piece that features a song referencing that event. No joke there. 0 High Five ladymisskirroyale says: 06/26/2013 at 11:57 pm Ahhhhhh. Thank you for the clarification. I’m imagining something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFZ9y3i48iY 0 High Five Leave a ReplyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
