Howdy Cruisers!

Hope you're doing exceptionally well! The last two weeks were a LOT slower concert-wise than the previous two, but the first moe. show at the Crystal Bay Club on 3/5/13 was absolutely, face-meltingly EPIC from the first note to the last!!! It helped a bit that Al Schnier announced it was my birthday (I turned 53 at the end of the show on 3/6), I got a pick of his w/ a moe. graphic on one side and his initials on the other, and I finally had a conversation with him 15 years after I first saw moe. at Mountain Aire -- that was also an EPIC day: moe., Widespread Panic, Leftover Salmon, Galactic, Ozomatli, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Spikedrivers!

The first set of the second show on 3/6 was excellent, but not quite as rockin' as either set the first night. The second set, however, was just as epic as the first night!! I'll post my photos of both shows by Thursday afternoon at the latest.

Orgone was exceptional opening both nights! Was real nice seeing Fannie, their original singer, back in the band!

The little I saw and heard of Twiddle, the afterparty band the first night, was excellent! I caught only three pretty tepid covers at the end of The Congress afterparty on Wednesday.

As you can see, I did get VERY busy posting photos. Please check out each page of all of them, as many of the best photos are often toward the end of shows, hence on the last pages. I'm extremely disappointed about the very few page views all these photos got so far, especially considering all the shows sold out and I knew a slew of people at each of them. Few people seeing photos will definitely discourage me from taking and posting them, although I do know I need to take fewer of them at each show anyhow.
