    I think I agree.  Unfortunately neither band seems interested in making any new music anymore...

    they put on a phenomenal show, but am I the only one that raises an eyebrow with Brian's chat between songs?

    Nope. I’m not someone who usually minds that. Actually I hate when the band literally says nothing the whole show. And I always love Ed’s chatter and Ryan Adams ramblings.

    Brian’s is painful at times and way too much. 
    The problem is there is a whole faction of the fan base that LOVES it and thinks everything he says is hilarious. At times he can be but more often then not it’s a little cringe worthy

    Have 2 huge presentations at work next Monday and Wednesday followed by the Philly show Wednesday and a couple well earned (hopefully assuming everything goes well) days off.

    Really excited to see these guys.

    I think it’s no worse than some of Ed’s political rants.  See DC 2008 show.  Awful rants.

    Crazy talk

    Of the times ive seen GA, he really didnt overly chat in between songs. Maybe two or three times he addressed the crowd each time.  Never seen a solo gig tho

    Definitely more talking at solo gigs 

    I’ll clarify though it never ruins the show. Band or solo the shows are always great. Always.

    They should have edited out the banter on the live Horrible Crowes record.

    Heard chatter the merch at these shows is cash only. Anybody been and know if that's true?
    everybody wants the most they can possibly get
    for the least they could possibly do

    Not sure if it’s all but seems like at least most

    Also for those going to the NJ shows there will be a pop up shop at the Asbury Yacht Club with exclusive stuff and some old things apparently

    Ugh. I don't want to have to go figure out cash. Such a 2018 problem, I know.

    I was at the second Toronto show. It was good, and the '59 Sound portion was fantastic, but the show didn't hit the same highs as the other times I've seen them (or the lows, for that matter...it was basically a straight-7/10). I really hope they're reinvigorated after all this, because the world needs new Gaslight more than it needs Gaslight touring a ten-year-old record, no matter how awesome.

    I thought it was great. had 3rd row on Alex R's side.

    ended up hanging out for a bit outside the venue and met benny and both alex's.

    brian got the fuck out of there really fast. there was a group of maybe 15 of us hanging out talking about the show and ian walked out and held a case of water bottles up over his head and acted like he didn't see us. the other three were very gracious. they took pics with everyone and signed things for everyone. they signed my 59 sound sessions LP i bought at the show. they hung out for probably 30 min and everyone got to talk to them. i talked with alex r about his setup and amps and pedals. alex l's wife is an orthpedic surgery nurse and i work with an orthopedic surgeon so we talked about that. both of them were very knowledgable baseball fans. they knew i am from st louis and they knew more about their team this year than i did. benny was mainly concerned about leaving his edibles inside the venue, haha...

    Unfortunately I don't see them making new music anytime soon.  In every interview that Brian does he keeps saying that there aren't any plans for the future.  With the crazy crowds and response they have been getting on this tour, it's amazing to me that they wouldn't want to keep doing this.  But who knows what the dynamics of this band actually are...

    For the show at the Stone Pony what's the parking situation?  Does the venue have a lot or is it on street parking.  Thanks

    There’s both but don’t count on getting street parking. Street parking is metered but you can make it work if your lucky. There is a parking App.

    Also there are ton of street spots you need a town permit for so make sure. I’d be mindful of the street you’re parking on if you get it. Close to the venue is good of course, some streets a few blocks away are not. Trust me you will know. 

    The lots are nearby but do fill up and I think are around $25.

    set times are

    5 doors

    6 Jared Hart

    645 Dave Hause & The Mermaid

    8 Gaslight

    Keep that in mind if your not used to weekend shore traffic. Especially on a Friday 

    I’d also suggest just going in. Beers are reasonable and it’s pretty chill. Explore the rest of AP after if you can, especially upper Cookman Ave, the Lanes, and the Asbury Hotel bars (and of course Clinch’s gallery)

    Gaslight on at 8 tonight too? I'm at a dead ass stop in traffic trying to get into Philly.

    I don’t know about tonight. The outside Pony shows usually start a bit early because they are in the middle of the neighborhood 
  • slightofjeffslightofjeff Posts: 7,652
    Ugh. Trying to decide if I've got time to dump my car at my hotel or go straight to the venue and deal with parking.

    All good. Asbury rules. Can’t wait for Friday and then off to Chicago Saturday AM

    Still annoyed this wound up the same weekend as wrigley because I’d be at all 3

    Also both Alex’s are hosting a post show after party at House or Independents
