PaniCast 32 New Year's Special Part 1

We're brewing up another blizzard here in Colorado, but in Atlanta it is 60 degrees. This NYE Special is dedicated to those who have been before and cannot make it to the New Year's festivies this year (like me). For those of you who were planning on it but physically could not leave Denver International Airport, for you I dedicate part 2!

1996 was a memorable year for me and the Everyday Companion. In spring 96 I received my Master's degree and in Winter 1996 we published the first Everyday Companion. The New Year's Eve shows at the Fox Theatre would be the debut of this first hand made, home made volume. I had the good fortune of seeing Panic at a small intimate gathering at the Morton Theater in Athens on December 28th but did not realize the best was yet to come! Lisa and I had good fortune looking down on us, or maybe a guardian angel. Third row in front of Houser for all three nights at the Fox in Atlanta in 1996.

After the shows I wrote on Spreadnet that I thought some part of me 'would always be in row CCC' and I still feel the same way. I met so many great people at these shows, folks who would end up being even better friends. I feel a warm glow sweep over me whenever I remember the fog in Athens on the night of the 28th and when I recall hugging Lisa in the swaying orchestra pit.

Without further ado - New Year's Eve run 1996 brought to you in two parts.

Highlights 12/29/96 and 12/30/96

PaniCast 29 Some Songs for Thanksgiving

A Pilgrim on his Journey

Happy Thanksgiving.
This week I thought I'd get a little cute and feature songs that have something to do with thanksgiving or the words in 'thanksgiving.'

12/30/99 Philips Arena, Atlanta, GA
C. Brown >
Walkin' for your love >

C. Brown is an obvious choice for thanksgiving - his animated holiday specials have become a tradition in many American households.

12/31/96 Fox Theater, Atlanta, GA
Entering a Blackhole Backwards >

Chilly Water

Happy Child >

5/10/97 St. Paul, MN
B of D >
Goin' Out West

An epic 20 minute Pilgrims is probably the most obvious choice for this cast. B of D was at one time called 'Giving', and then those Pilgrims had to 'go out west' to find people to appreciate.

PaniCast #26 Midwest Madness

Midwest midweek midlife crisis madness!

This week we feature highlights from the band's recent journey through the western upper midwest - Ames > Sioux Falls, SD > Omaha.

There is so much to bring to you this week that I am experimenting with a 2 hour cast - hopefully this works for everyone - we will see, thanks for your patience.

Here's what you will hear this week:

10/24/06 C.Y. Stephens Auditorium Ames, IA
Let's Get the Show on the Road
Walk On

10/25/06 Husby Performing Arts Center, Sioux Falls, SD
Greta >
Riders on the storm tease >

Knocking Around the Zoo

I ended up driving by myself from the plains of Colorado through Nebraska to Des Moines. I left before dawn and had already been on the road for about two hours when the sun finally rose directly in front of the hood of my Honda, floating for a second like an interstellar hood ornament. The flats of Colorado and Nebraska gave way to the gentle river formed hills of western Iowa. I had the fortune of being able to stay with family in Des Moines which gave me the opportunity to take my nephew Nolan to the Ames show.
Nolan Strauss

We drove up a little early so we could eat some dinner at People's Bar and Grill. This notorious venue was visited by Widespread twice in the early ninties, including one stop in 1994 to play for 100 people or so. The food was okay - I had a burger that was decent barfare but the salad was limp and there was NO SOAP in the men's bathroom - inexcusable. I think People's may have seen better days unfortunately.

It was chilly outside, with a crisp breeze and overcast skies. Despite the chill the Iowa fans had set up a pretty decent shakedown in the lot, with food, beverages, shirts, stickers - I even saw some used books! After a celebratory Sammy Smith's Oatmeal stout, a tradition of mine that goes back fifteen years, I was ready to start the musical chapter of my tour.

This was a reserved show and I was able to secure a sixth row ticket that was nearly centered in this funky cement auditorium. There was something about this place that reminded me of an elegant post-modern silo. I ended up in the same row as Bobby Hanson... a guy that Lisa and I met at a Grateful Dead show in 1995 and then ran into at various random midwest jam band events. It was good to see him although I bone-headedly forgot who he was. Sorry Bobby.

Show time and the band worked out some standards like Can't Get High and Better Off. And man was it LOUD! I felt the playing for this set was a little tentative, but maybe that was just me. This being my first Jimmy show I was mainly paying attention to the interplay between the players. All in all the band was hanging together really well. However, with the exception of a a few small jams, they never really took flight during that first set. Fishwater opened the second set and gave me a very good glimpse of what occurs when the band turns Jimmy loose on a jam. He solos with an such an unrelenting brilliance it is sometimes hard to remember he's only been playing this band for a few weeks.

They turn the corner out of drums into Space Wrangler. The main 'theme' of the song came around and it was time for Jimmy to step up to play that recognizable melody. You could see him lock into the bassline and feel him counting off in his head - and a few of those times he almost missed his cue and would catch Dave staring at him. I am not sure if Dave was givin him googly eyes or what but Jimmy would crack a smile and giggle as he played that signature melody. Even when this guy is missing cues he is having fun and the music doesn't suffer.

The highlight of the second set was the Let's Get the Show on the Road, which was beautifully played and really forced the band to jam, listen, and decide on the fly where to jump back in around Jimmy's solos. The Walkin' featured the hard stop which brought a HUGE smile to my face...

And I kept smiling right through the encore. Expiration Day is one of my favorite Vic covers - there is something about JB belting out the line "I love my job" that once again reminds me that this band's working-man's ethic is something I've always identified with. Walk On was the final song of the show and the highlight for me. Lisa loves this tune and I found myself thinking of her as I boogied and shook. I think Nolan had a good time and I think I even caught him shaking it a couple of times!

We got back to the homestead around 11:30 and I updated the website with the setlist and chatted online with the folks at PanicStream... some dude who's handle is "threef" had obviously been there too and we traded tid bits about the show for the benefit of those in far-flung places who could not make the show.

The next morning I was picking up Whim Marsh in Omaha, so I got on the road early, around 8:30. I've written previously in this blog about my brother Daniel and his amazing ability to drive extremely long distances solo. Well Whim is this week's tour stud. I ran into him in the Verizon store in Longmont and convinced him that he should come with me to the Omaha and Sioux Falls shows. He took the Amtrak from Denver to meet me in downtown Omaha. I knew the plan was going to work when I got a voice mail from him; "Captain Panic, this is sergeant Widespread, reporting for duty, on the ground in Omaha!"

Being in Omaha afforded us the opportunity to check into our hotel before making the three hour drive to Sioux Falls. That's right, for reasons I am not going to go into here, we were going to spend the night in Omaha after the Sioux Falls show, which means we would have to drive the three hours south AFTER the show... In the end it all ends up being worth it though, trust me!

We drove directly north across the flat vast fields of extreme westen Iowa. Our conversation helped the road fly by and before we knew it we were standing outside the venue staring at the band's buses.

We both needed lunch so we wandered down the hill to an old section of town - we asked a meter maid where we could get a bite to eat and once the word "diner" came out of her mouth we knew where we were going.

I had a chocolate malt, corn chowder, salad, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans and fried chicken fingers. I was READY for a show now!

Chocolate Shake for Whim

We hooked up with my old friend Garrie, who got us access to the venue to watch the soundcheck and drink a tallboy. There were other fans there for the soundcheck, leading me to believe there was some sort of local contest held through a local radio station. It was cool to see John Keane sing the vocals to Woodstock and the band played two tunes and left the stage - I think JB said "This is the first time we've had anyone dancing at a soundcheck," a statement I am sure is not true.

I found out later that the band wanted to soundcheck halloween songs without fans there. I don't blame them but part of me really regrets not trying HARDER to stick around.

Whim and I stop for a beer and finish our first one at about 5:50. Doors are at 6:00. Shall we stay for a beer or go and try for good seats? It is a GA show and so we opt for the seats. On entry to the venue we discover that the orchetra pit is going to be restricted to the first 30 or 40 people who get wrist bands. I am first in the pit and spy two seats in the front row in front of Dave. It is a sign. I'm not one who has spent alot of time in the front row - maybe one show in the past 14 years. This was going to be a treat. I look back into the theater just before show time... there's maybe 550 people there. The balcony is empty. I love small town shows!

Sioux Falls 10 minutes before show time

They open with Pigeons - always a favorite of mine in the opening spot. The boys are smoking the jam and turn the corner into Who Do You Belong To? Are you kidding? Is this a rhetorical question? The boys are on and we can feel it. Time Waits (Body and Soul) was a great treat for a slow song before JoJo kicks out a killer Greta and the band prepares for flight...

As they wail away Dave and JoJo hook up to change the tempo and a Riders on the Storm tease gives way to a Nobody's Fault but Mine! A huge treat in the first set, this song left me standing there realizing that this trip was worth it and we still had two hours of music and another venue to go!

Second set includes some great jamming out of Second Skin and Low Spark but Surprise Valley still needs work to be able to compete with this anthem's former glory. One funny moment was watching Dave wait impatiently for Sunny to finish an impromptu drum solo after Low Spark. And I think that gave him too much time to think because he ended up botching the reentry into Surprise... Oh well, once they got it going again all was forgiven. C. Brown was a surprise in the late second set and Radio Child brought us home, the band firing on all cylinders.

The band returned to the stage for the encore but JB was missing. JoJo starts noodling on the organ, preparing for Pieces, and JB finally shows. Dave grabs some flowers that a fan had given him from his stack and turns and presents them to JB. Laughs and fake awkward hugs motivates JoJo to make kissy sounds in the mic.

The show is done at 10:30 sharp! We make the drive back to Omaha arriving around 1:30 am with just one wrong turn, but without noteworthy incident. With the lyrics "...if I don't pray my soul'll be lost..." ringing in our ears we settle in for a well deseved sleep.

We wake around 9 and head out for breakfast - should we eat in the hotel or at "The Diner" up the way? Of course, The Diner wins. Great greasy diner food is exactly what I needed. We walked back to our room and took a nap. Around 3 pm we rousted ourselves, I took a shower and put on my lucky Houser shirt. We walked up the hill to see where the venue was. Our hopes to meet up with Garrie early are dashed as he informs me that they are going to soundcheck for halloween... oh, to be a fly on the wall to hear that Morning Dew getting practiced...

Waiting for the show with my lucky Houser t-shirt on

Back at the hotel we run into Adam Stern and his buddy John and we join forces for dinner. We find a brewpub in the old town district and eat a solid meal before show time. We talk about the break up of Polytoxic due to the departure of CR Gruver to join Outformation. Breaks my heart to hear that this amazing three piece band has broken up.

Show time is looming and again Whim and I are faced with a dilemna; stay and have another drink or go to the venue for doors to see if we can secure a spot up close. Wisely we choose doors and for the second night in a row are on the rail in front of Dave. We help Garrie celebrate his birthday with a tequila margarita - emphasis on tequila! Garrie is such a great guy. He's always been so accommodating and happy to make conversation. On this night he is celebrating and in high spirits. Back out front to hold down our spots where I discover we are standing next to Fritz, Tom Coe, and a woman whose name escapes me wearing an "Iowa Women Rock" t-shirt, so the company is good. Show time and Sunny starts everything off with a plea to the crowd to sing Happy Birthday for Garrie, a request they oblige happily and with gusto. Sunny breaks out the diggerido and we are rocking in Papa Legba. The first half of the first set kicks some serious ass. I see Garrie, possibly during Disco, flashing googly eyes, a tongue and goofy ears at Jimmy - which sends Jimmy into hysterics. Each song is tight, not quite perfect but verging so close I forget where I am for a little while. The music is moving my body now and my mind is just a passenger. I find myself sweating and extremely thirsty as the band starts playing Papa Johnny Road, so I decide to get a beer for Whim and I. Bad decision. Not only does it take 15 minutes to get the damn beer the band plays a good 1/2 of Arlene before I can get back to my spot. Oh well - some times you've got to take one for the team!

The Arlene is epic. I've listened to it multiple times since the trip and it is definitely recommended listening. I set my beer on the stage in front of me and write another song down on my setlist. The security comes over and tells me to get it off the stage, I respect his demand, but return it there once the next song gets going. It's a game we'll play all night. Christmas Katie calls us 'Dancers' and insured that the good times would last all night. Jack was next and made me miss my little boy back home - and as they raged another monster jam I could feel the Chilly Water coming... I could see JoJo smiling ear to ear, then Dave turning to face Jimmy, JB saunters over close to Jimmy bobbing his head in appreciation, Todd was ripping through snare drums and Sunny is just getting down. Tom Coe and I trade using each other's shoulder to jump with glee into the air. Big crescendo, Candace's lights paint backgrounds while Jimmy's leaning back in mid-solo, smiling.

Setbreak I hook up with Garrie again to give him a final thank you. Another tallboy and I am ready for the second round. As Dave comes out on stage I am probably a little too tipsy but have decided the time has come... "Dark Star!" I scream. "Dark Star!" again, just for good measure. He's only eight feet away and I'm screaming like he's across the room - that darn tequila really highlights my idiot tendencies!

Rock gets us off to a great start but I wasn't really feeling it during the Stop Breaking Down and Time Zones. You Got Yours was one that I'd wanted to hear since it's return and here it was in all it's glory. Keane does such a great job with the leads on this, plus they nailed the tempo changes.

I hear JB steering the jam, harmonics and a couple strums and Driving Song. Are you kidding me? In the end I drove 1900 miles for these three shows, so in my own head this was my anthem. Into a nice, rollicking, Holden Oversoul. Giant Jam. Mellow Jam. Dark Star Jam! Another jam after that... into another underappreciated drums. Out of drums into, TIME IS FREE. This song is one of my favorites. It is so minimal, it feels like the tension built during a primal scream. The insistent bass line. The eerie lyrics; "Do you recall the day we all stopped to ask the question 'why?'" About half way though this song, JoJo starts playing the Chorus of the Bells, the band turns a corner and they are flying. Huge souring leads by Dave and Jimmy send this thing into overdrive. Dave and Jimmy were trading licks and looks, and my trip had just paid off in spades. Give ended with a bang while I crushed my hands clapping.

Vampire Blues got me thinking about all the damn gas I consumed on this trip but Knockin' Around the Zoo kept us rocking right out the back door. Amazing. Blown away. Speechless, I joined a crew of guys for some after show shenanigans.

I woke the next morning wishing I could sleep for another three hours, fortunately Whim got us on the road and pointed west. That afternoon, as we watched the sun set behind Long's Peak, looking like an interstellar hood ornament, Whim and I joked about keeping the car pointed west. Just keep driving and we'd be in Vegas. We both belly laugh at the idea, each secretly nodding to the reality we were about to return to. We were getting one of those sunsets that keeps getting more intense, changing it's colors and our lighting. I've done enough musical road trips to know that there is a diminishing return at some point; the fact that the journey is so enjoyable has as much to do with the departure from reality it represents as the 'events' being attended. Damn, why do I need to be so experienced and responsible? Just keep driving, chasing that star dancing on the horizon.

I am a 37 year old husband and father and who do I belong to?
Depends on who I'm with.

It was a dark and stormy night in Illinois. No kidding.
Cold horizontal rain coming down in sheets. Reports of plane crashes. In the hotel bar on the big screen the Bears and Packers on Monday Night Football are playing in 'throw back' uniforms. A girl in a grass skirt and a coconut top floats by. Are we in some sort of weird time-warp?

If that seems strange, imagine showing up for a halloween show and buying tickets at the door for $12!
Northwestern's fall ball in a hotel ballroom featuring Widespread Panic was a truly memorable experience and the last small scale halloween the band ever played.

Turn this one up loud !

PaniCast 23 House of Blues Orlando SPECIAL

I've been obsessively downloading and listening to as much of the recent Jimmy Herring Widespread as I can possibly get my hands on. The recent House of Blues run in Orlando looked like a series of smokers and from what I've been able to hear the setlists don't lie!

David Schools, Macon 10/7/06, photo by Michael Saba

There were so many highlights that I found myself with more material than one Cast could contain - so it has been extended to an hour! The band is by no means playing perfectly, but they sure are taking chances and letting the music play the band.

Highlights in this cast include:
C. Brown with Jimmy Herring on Acoustic guitar
the Barstools is the first with Jimmy
the Hatfield rap is freaky
and JB continues his antics during the Fishwater
Finally - what can I say about Little Wing?!!

Watching Outformation....

What a world of wonders we live in...
I can watch Outformation play on a live webcast from the stages of the Pour House in Charleston.
I write this as I listen to Sam's lead on the final song of the night, Burned Faceless (Smoke and Burn).

Well it's been 3 years since I last saw your face-
Or maybe it was just a delay of 33 seconds!

I found a great interview where JoJo talks about this version of Junco > Mardi Gras HERE

The 10/28/00 show fetaures some great Panic moments. JB's flub of Junco Partner leads to a spirited Mardi Gras jam; yet another example of how the band's philosophy of improvisation and allowing songs to be in the moment can create some unexpected magic. The bust outs of Lawyers Guns and Money, Trouble and Soul Kitchen almost overshadow the fine Red Hot Mama > Sharon. I find myself thinking of this show when I think of New Orleans - probably because of the Mardi Gras jam.

May the spirit of the music of New Orleans and, more importantly, the entire gulf coast live forever.

PaniCast #16 When in Doubt, Go Completely OUT!

August 12, 2006
Chicago Theatre
Barstools and Dreamers (with a sick rap by JB)

August 12, 2006
House of Blues, Chicago
Post-Panic Party

Center Stage (with John Keane)
Tennessee Before Daylight (with John Keane)
Smoke and Burn (Burned Faceless)

Go Completely Out!

The scoop on this CAST:
What a huge time I had in Chicago! Amazing venue, great company and beautiful weather.
I had the good fortune of being able to take the REST of my family (Mom, Dad and sister Katie) to the Friday night show. All four members of my immediate family seeing a show with me in a single summer - now that is an acccomplishment!

I think everyone had a wonderful time and it was a great way to start a solid weekend of music and friends. It was a pleasure to see each parent leave the theatre with a smile on their face! Thanks mom and dad for everything and for putting up with my antics fo the past 37 years!

The Barstools we feature this week is freaking crazy -
The PA was acting up to start the second set and it kicked back in just in time for the band to turn the corner into Barstools. JB must've been feeding off the nervous energy created during those tense minutes to start the set and gave the crowd a treat. The Thank You Falletten Me Be Mice Elf rap is great but then his 'Baby only knows...' rap is one for the books:

'Just watch that baby. Basically the first thought he got is like
And how long we gotta do it? Did I get it right, like 80 years?'
And that baby said 'OOOOOH! OOOOOH'

Then we feature several selections from the Outformation show that night just across the river at the House of Blues. A portion of this features John Keane on pedal steel. This show also had a palpable energy - I heard more than one person say they saw two of their top shows in one night!

Check out Outformation's summer/fall dates here - they are opening for Widespread in Charrlottesville!

It was so great to see so many old friends again. Thanks to Dennis and Val and Tom and Ashley for letting me tag along on the pilgrimmage to Wishbone on Sunday. Thanks to Leigh and Jen for letting me invade your space in the 6th row on Saturday night. Thanks to Chris for the BBQ on Saturday and for showing me the late night on Sunday night.

And it was great to meet so many new friends as well -
to the nine year old who saw his first concert on Sunday night - I hope you had a great time and I wish you all the best in your journeys through life and music!

Peace, Ted

#11 - 'Happy Birthday to Me!' Special

July 22 is my birthday and this year I will have the treat of attending a Widespread Panic concert at Winter Park, CO on my birthday! I am hoping for good weather and safe travels.

This episode is an hour long special featuring various moments from shows I attended over the years. These aren't necessarily the 'best version ever' or anything - each was selected because I have a fond memory associated with each show. We'll kick everything off with the song that really 'grabbed my legs' and began my fascination and musical relationship with Widespread Panic.

Ted circa 1971

July 22, 1992 Chicago, IL

Lisa and I attended this show at Mississippi Nights in St Louis. We had sold our tickets for what would end up being the final Grateful Dead show which occurred on the same evening in Chicago. After the chaos of Deer Creek and the hassle of St Louis, our Grateful Dead touring days were already over. Fortunately a new adventure in our lives was under way even if we weren't aware of it yet. This Ain't No Use is pretty crazy and I remember being on the floor three people back from Dave just overwhelmed by the intensity of this song.
July 9, 1995 St. Louis, MO
Ain't No Use

On a whim Lisa, Maureen and I drove in the hot and humid midwestern heat for what seemed like 10,000 miles from Chicago to Ames, Iowa to see the band in a little bar. We woke up early, drove all day and saw a show that night. This was a very memorable trip including the discovery that the oil cap for the car's engine had been left off for about 200 miles. Where do you find an oil cap in the middle of a corn field? Plus the venue was serving giant 36 oz beers on special for $2. We did NOT wake up early the next morning.
July 16, 1994 Ames, IA

I drove up to Minneapolis with Dennis Dahl to see this final show of the spring tour. We slept on the floor of his friend's home office and couldn't find anything to eat anywhere near the venue - I think we had seafood quesadillas at an upscale brew pub or something. In any case, every time I here this song it brings back the emotions I experienced on spring tour 1997 - sweet, strong, tight, welcoming and powerful.
May 10, 1997 Minneapolis, MN

In one 36 hour stretch I bought a plane ticket to Atlanta, won tickets to the show in a chat room interview with Dave Schools, heard the first Pilgrims on tape at Brian Sofer's house, missed the CNN interview I had been invited to, went to the show, sold $100 worth of tape covers in the parking lot, met the manager of the Lakewood Amphitheater who set me up with my own box (the Delta box) and bought my first round of drinks, got rip snorting drunk, went backstage, broke down Sofer's front door, flew back to Chicago and then drove to Alpine Valley, WI for the Lollapooza festival. The Last Straw indeed.
July 26, 1997 Atlanta
Last Straw

This show was a miracle all the way around. We're in downtown Detroit before they built the new stadium. Dennis, Val, Lisa and I show up hungry and several hours early for the show. Dennis and Val are vegetarians and there isn't a food establishment within, what seems like, miles. But wait - what is that tiny hut in the middle of that parking lot across the street from the venue? It looks like the parking attendant's booth.... It is a middle eastern restaurant that specializes in vegetarian food! That sums up this amazing trip to Detroit - around each turn there were surprises but through it all we were Feelin' Alright!
May 1, 1997 Detroit
Feelin' Alright

Lisa and Ted circa 1994

Thanks again to EVERYONE out there who have supported and helped us over the years with the project and on our journey to and from Panic shows. We really could not have done this labor of love without you. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU.

#9 Support Independent Radio

November 23, 1998
Pleas > Chilly Water, Aunt Avis

May 15, 1993
Wondering, Walkin' (for your love)

Broadcasting out of Pittsburg WYEP has always been run independently and in 1998 on the home stretch of their fall tour, Widespread Panic dropped by for a 60 minute performance. It is interesting to note that the band did not have a gig in Pittsburg and instead chose to perform for free on this independent radio station's airwaves. WYEP is listener supported and provides many of the in-studio performances online for free.

WERS broadcasts from Boston at Oberlin College and in 1993 the band rolled through the studio on their spring tour before playing a gig that night at the Avalon. This relatively rare all-acoustic performance by the band is marked by some playful banter from JB and JoJo and playful false starts.

Please consider donating to one of these (or to your local) independent radio stations this year. These radio stations provide access to music and perspectives you will not get on Clear Channel, Entertainment Tonight or other 'mainstream' monopolozied media outlets. You can click on the logos above for each station to go to their membership pages.

Podcast #8 Mud Island 1997

Mud Island 1997 - On the Humid, Hot, Flooding Mississippi

My brother flew down from Alaska to spend a couple weeks with me and Lisa in Chicago and during that time Panic was playing in Memphis so of course we had to drive down. As a fifteen year old kid living in Palmer, AK Daniel had never seen Widespread and he was staying with me at the height of my touring career with the band. I think I saw 32 shows that year... something like that.

In any case, my brother and I had a great time at these shows driving together in the car, checking out Graceland and grooving to the Panic. This trip ranks as one of the most memorable I've had in my storied (if only in my own mind) career as a fan.

This past weekend was the 2006 Widespread Panic Red Rocks run and the situation has changed. I have a house and a kid and a 'real' job and my brother is now the one that is out on tour. He drove from Oregon to go to Waukarusa and Bonnaroo partly in support of the Ice Cream Man. Ice Cream Man is a guy/organization that distributes FREE ICE CREAM a festivals around the country and takes pictures of everything and posts those pics to his website Ice Cream

On his way back from Bonnaroo he visited Lisa, Jackson and I. He was planning on attending the Friday Panic show at the Rocks. Saturday morning thought better of leaving in the face of being able to see another show by the accomplished band at the esteemed venue and stuck around. Sunday he woke up at 8:30 and was on the road by 9:15 for the 18 hour drive back to Oregon so he could teach on Monday morning! STUD.

In any case, this podcast is a long distance dedication to my amazing younger brother - I am proud to call you my brother even if you think I'm a "nerd!"

Red Rocks Recovery

Still feeling pretty tired from the three day fiesta called Widespread Panic at Red Rocks. Had an absolutely amazing time seeing the boys and dancing with old friends. Thanks to EVERYONE who made this weekend so special. And thanks to everyone for the compliments of the Podcast! We've got well over 300 subscribers now and many MANY more listening directly from the Blog. We've also been in the Top 100 Most Popular Music Podcasts on iTunes for over a week now.

I will post some pictures from yesterday's show at the Rocks in a gallery for everyone to take a look at maybe tomorrow.

Peace - OUT.

First Pilgrims 9/14/92 Solana Beach, CA - Podcast #7

This episode features the first Pilgrims ever played as well as the funky Strictly Volunteer Jam (where JB is singing about his 'sneaky sister.'

September 14, 1992 Belly Up Tavern, Solana Beach, CA
Driving Song > Instrumental Pilgrims > Happy Child > Strictly Volunteer Jam > Driving Song > Makes Sense to Me

And one final track from the solo Acoustic performance by JB in Jackson, WY.
July 29, 1995 Jackson, WY

The Solana Beach performance is classic Panic. The rap by JB during the Jam is priceless and the band is playing with gusto. This recording reminds me of something that Col. Bruce once said about the band - that they would play to a crowd of 5 as if they were a crowd of 50,000.

JB Solo, Acoustic Pilgrims, Epic Stop Go - Podcast #6

Listen to this podcast with your sweety - it's chock full of Panic-y goodness!
What a treat this podcast was to produce!
Remember to TURN IT UP!!

John Bell four track recording from 1998(?)
Climb to Safety

May 15, 1993 Boston, MA
Pilgrims (full band acoustic)

April 27, 1997 Burlington, VT
Stop Go > Wondering

John Bell four track
Little Lilly

The interviewing on the 5/15/93 radio performance is laughably hideous but the performances are actually quite good so I'll bring more of that performance in future podcasts and spare everyone the embarrassment of the words between the music.

The Stop Go > Wondering includes a brilliant improv by JB - one of my all time favorite Panic moments.
Make sure to pay attention to the transition between the two songs!
This is a long distance dedication to Lauren and Ben in NYC.

I also really love the four track recordings - listen closely to JB harmonizing with himself and adding all sorts of vocal embellishments during both songs... I have no idea where I picked this up but I feel lucky to have been able to hear it.

Exploring July 18th - Podcast #5

Great things can happen on a particular date -
take July 18th, JoJo's birthday, for example -

This week you'll hear Walk On and Early from July 18, 1995 at Bohemia Music in Billings, Montana.

Then you'll hear a band named Sherman play All Along the Watchtower from 7/18/01 (actually it was about 3 am on the 19th but who's counting?) at Wetlands in New York City.

This song features Dave Schools on bass and vocals and JoJo Herman on keyboards. Sherman Ewing is the front man for this band and is an old friend of JoJo's. In fact, JoJo played in Sherman and the Bureaucrats in college.

It is interesting to note that this performance of All Along the Watchtower occurs just a few days before Widespread Panic debuted the song as part of their repertoire.

Red Rocks Special 3 - June 25, 2000

'Never miss a Sunday show'

June 25, 2000 Red Rocks
Bear's Gone Fishing > Ride Me High > Hatfield

I've seen every WSP show they've headlined at Red Rocks and this show ranks as one of the most memorable.

Despite JB's obvious lyrical flub during Bear's Gone Fishing the band takes the nervous energy of that miscue and finds inspiration. They slither through the second half of the song with gusto and fly into the jam after Ride Me High with reckless abandon.

The rain that developed during that jam out of Ride Me High seemed to summon Hatfield's spirit -
And what transpired during that first set has since gone down in WSP lore as one of 'those' moments when it is hard to discern between the band, the song, the audience, the weather and the venue.

'Blue start rolling between the clouds, feeling of wonder, some water drying up, some water just sinking into the skin'

Gov't Mule sit in and More JB Solo - Podcast #3

This edition includes:

7/20/97 Birmingham, AL
Nobody's Fault But Mine (with Amazing Grace rap) > Feeling Alright

JB Solo 7/29/95 Jackson, WY

The JB solo performance contains an extended Hatfield's Mama rap - 'One more thing about Hatfield's mama...'
The DJ announces that he's pouring a 'cold one' at the beginning and JB seemingly addresses this during the Hatfield's mama rap - 'take a sip and sit back, and learn!' The small audience in the studio even helps keep the beat with some hand claps. We'll bring you the final song from this performance in a future cast.
