    After the storm and rains cleared, good stuff happened. A great show last night. Blew my husband away. He's a death metal guy, but he loved it. Couldn't believe that Matt cruises put into the audience (with a corded mic and techs to go with). Matt popped in behind us. (He is the blonde blur.)

    As always, I did shed some tears. It was amazing how beautifully the new album played. My husband said that hearing it live gives him a new appreciation for it. 

    And Green Gloves, y'all! I got to hear Green Gloves again! :triumph:

    A beautiful poster, too. :smile:

    Got to hang with two great friends. Good things.  Made my heart smile. So very appreciative of this fabulous night of music. 

    Awesome stuff. If you are on the fence, go ... see ... hear. 
    Saw this show a year ago. How things have changed. So very many things. :frowning:

    I was supposed to be on the way to Edmonton right now to see The National live for the first time. Instead I’m sitting the the rain contemplating how good next summer is gonna be with twice the amount of tours. Strange days.

    I'm sorry to hear that.  Missed Homecoming Festival, so I feel your sadness.  Next year.  Hopefully.

    Hopefully! I joined the Cherry Tree club today feeling sorry for myself. Have you been to Homecoming before??

    I have! It was fabulous!

    Welcome to Cherry Tree! I tell you, the membership vinyl is very thoughtfully put together and they generally come on time! (This year was a lil behind, but it was a production issue. It was only months behind, not years.)

    They released a show on vinyl last time for us. :smile:

    The presale for Homecoming was great. Scored the $99 weekend tix that ended up selling out in the first 14 minutes. 

    I do love The National.

    Guys, if you love this band, check out the new taylor Swift album. NTL vibes (and members) all over it.

    Agreed.

    I happen to be a massive Pearl Jam fan who also loves Taylor Swift and The National. This new album is amazing. First of all, I LOVE that she dropped a second album just 8 months after her last massive release, (Lover). This gives me hope that a follow-up to Gigaton might really be just around the corner. Second, the vibe of this album is just perfect and the National and Bon Iver influence on her is apparent and so nice.

    That vinyl is a big reason I joined. Hopefully they release some extra when the next one comes out! It seems like a well run club. 
    Hopefully after this pandemic I will make it down south to check the festival out! That and Eaux Claire’s would be pretty cool.

    Taylor Swift isn't my gig, but I'll give it a listen.

    T. Swift isn’t in my wheelhouse either, but this new album is stunning. Not what i would have expected.

    I'm a fan, her songwriting is so good, and WOW this album takes it all to the next level. Could be her best work and it's her 8th album.

    Yeah, she keeps getting better and better. Been a fan since Speak Now (well, maybe the Fearless singles) and a massive fan since 1989.
