    Stoked as always! havent missed a new years show in years. Got the album today, listening as we speak. King Hummingbird is a beauty!!! God i love this bands music
    thought of you when I posted these. The New Years run is always amazing! One of these days I'll make my way over there for them,

    Did you get your preordered album or did you end up going else where? I emailed the band's merch department, but still haven't heard back from them, nor has my album arrived- and it came out over a week ago!!!!
    Yea, it was on the door step yesterday and it was the pre-order. That's nuts that you still dont have it. I tried to cancel my order when I found out the shipping costs but never heard anything back either. As cool as these guys are, you'd think they'd have a reputable merch company running shit for them. Anyway, another brilliant album. You should def try and get over here for one of the new year's shows; they're always fantastic.

    I was thinking the same thing. I'm sure it's not their fault - I'm sure it's the PO fault, but still- over a week? I don't know what else to do. I'm sure they will never email me back and it will show up one day- probably this week, I hope at least. But I agree with you- killer album. One of my favorites!

    I was over on the left side the entire night. Easy access to the bar. Where were yall?

    Wow they were on fire last night!!! Really wish I could remember the entire setlist from last night to post here. "Lochloosa" was the highlight for me last night. The entire crowd started off singing it - went well into the first verse before JJ busted out the harmonica and really laid it down. They played a bunch of stuff off of their new album - "The Sweetest Thing" was just killer. "War", "Ho Cakes", and "Orange Blossoms" were freakin sweet too. Great crowd- I don't think it was soldout like last time they were in town, but it had to be pretty damn close. The place was packed.

    If anyone finds a decent recording of this show, please let me know.

    left for us, too. between merch booth & bar, in front of the rail (not that it matters now).

    great show. After 6 or 7 shows through the years, they keep getting better.

    We had to leave just before 12 bc I go to work @ 5 AM, but what we saw was stellar.

    we had to be right next to each other. We kept moving around in that area, but pretty much always in front of the rail. Very cool show. They had to end up playing for about 2 and a half hours.

    I had heard of them for a while and just never heard their music. The wifey got "Choice Cuts" and we really dig it! Since we haven't seen them we are planning on going to the show in Portland ME. :D
    Is the new album coming out on vinyl??

    Very cool- enjoy the show!

    As far as I know, I believe that Choice Cuts is the only album out on vinyl, but I could be wrong.

    I could be wrong, but I believe that the only song that Toots Hibbert is on is "The Sweetest Thing".

    Enjoy the show tomorrow night and let us know about it!

    Went to see them last night. Great show we were front and center! I was curious if there would be horns, I was very happy to see them. He had a great stage presence not to mention a stellar soulful voice. I thoroughly enjoyed the show. Here's a pic...

    IMG01219.jpg?t=1290617136
    I am having trouble finding the setlist (if I find it I'll edit it in later).

    On an end note I got pulled over for nothing and he made me walk the line! I passed but still no ticket for what I supposedly did, makes me mad how they bend the laws :evil:
