    Finishing that Nassau show was one of the most interesting PJ shows I can remember. I've heard those infamous Dylan v Crowd shows when he plugged in but this was something else, this was art fighting against politics. "Rockin" ending with Eddie chanting USA...they could've gone friendly after "Bushleager" instead they went into "Fortunate Son" and then "Rockin...."

    Also, it's hot. Stay safe.

    I want to know when the Home Shows Streaming comes to Chicago what are we going to get? 2013 show in entirety? All 5 Wrigley shows over an extended time? A band signed baseball as the buyable memorabilia? Will that 2013 show be this year's vault? Yes, I know we're waiting on last year's but whatever. 

    Happy Record Store Day.

    Foo Fighters sold out MSG last night. Such a beautiful thing. NBA Playoffs at full capacity. These things have zero to do with my attendance, I'm just here for all the back to normal.

    Neil Young and Crazy Horse are back in the studio. I missed seeing him twice, once due to my grandmother passing (I had amazing seats for a solo outing) and once for Crazy Horse a Feb snow storm stopped me from getting to the venue. But I'm hoping I'll catch them. I love Crazy Horse! I just love the sound. Covid gave me a bucket list of musicians to see, NYCH is #2.

    Out of boredom and excitement I keep checking band's web sites hoping the come out with something regarding shows this year or next. Some activity. I do get worried that these variants (not the poster kind) are going to muck things up again. Fingers crossed.

    I spend so much time listening to live shows that I rarely get to the albums (especially post Yield) but man Binaural and Riot Act are so experimental. I was listening to Riot Act, "You Are," specifically and my wife came down and asked "what is this?" and it hit me that a lot of that album is so different...and I mean that in the best possible way. I always loved half of Riot Act, but now I'm seeing it as a whole and it's just an amazing album. I can't say I love every song but they all work together so well.

    I loved Jeff's message about Joni Mitchell's Blue. While I can't say it's a favorite I love hearing about artists' inspirations adn find it fascinating that it was the most played album early on in PJ's development. There is something awesome about learning how musicians think and what attracts them. I always knew the band were diverse artists, but I just assumed they skewed harder in those earlier years.

    Been doing a deep dive into "Immortality" lately and I'm loving the collision of sounds in the live versions. It's such a soft contemplative song that turns into a dervish in the live format - the entire band coming to life and letting Matt take it out with a vengeance. Not sure what ending I love more, this or "Black's" jam out.

    The bummer of not having Lost Dogs reissued on vinyl is being unable to listen to the original iterations. Sure, I could find a cd player or stream it but it's just different now. I listen to all my live stuff through streaming (unless it's the vaults) and I'm just seeing so much going on in these studio versions. The fascinating aspect of the band's (dogs, cause they're not all B Sides) is that they have great great great songs that just didn't fit on albums (All Night, Down, Fatal, Otherside, Hard to Imagine...I could go on and on) then there are true B Sides (you know solid songs that are fun but not album cuts - U, Leatherman, etc) and then just the songs that have no home. Just so many great songs. We are lucky.

    It's tough but "Hard to Imagine" might be a top five PJ song for me. It's just startling and enlightening. Maybe they'll open one of the two tests with this, it would be an interesting take on the past few years.

    I've always said the 2016 tour is one of (if not) my favorite but going back into to those 03 shows, man did I miss out. I saw a show. It was solid (I've never been at a show and wished I was anywhere else in the world) but those April 03 shows were pure fire.

    I'm always fascinated what my kids hear in music, what catches them...lately my daughter has been in love with Alicia Key's "This Girl is on Fire," and it struck me that this song and bits of the lyrics would go beautifully with daughter.

    I didn't realize until the after that yesterday was the 21st anniversary of Rocksilde...I saw someone post that those unfortunate individuals could've been any of us and that hit home. The tragedy of doing something you love and experiencing the ultimate tragedy. I can't imagine. Days and moments like that make me appreciate what I have and value the world even more.

    It’s been a while since I’ve been able to visit the city I called home for 12 years and while all the news coverage is negative so much is still the same. That being said I can’t help but feel when we talk about chicago we talk violence and make no mistake it’s there, but we never hear about economics and the inequities that rampantly changes so much so soon. We never have the hard conversations- just the news fodder.

    Until this morning I've never seen what the inside of the Ryman Auditorium looks like. What a phenomenal place for a show. I can't imagine seeing some of the greats on stage there.

    Like everyone else I’m anxiously awaiting my vault vinyl. I’ve wondered if they released this to sate the want and need of a No Code era vault.

    I'm dipping my toes into the 06 tour and for some reason it's not doing much for me right now. I love the album. I love the songs live. The band is good, it's just a me thing. Funny how that works. I mean it did take me 18 years to get on board with the 03 tour, so being late the game is nothing new. I do remember loving the 06 Europe tour. At some point I've listened to every show available. But it's always a new new experience.

    Whats fascinating is that the shows before 03 don’t have much banter and it really picks up in 05; the right banter can elevate a show to epic levels for me. Band, setlist and banter just do it for me. I used to think length but one of my all times is an 08 show in Oeries (wasn’t there) but it’s so good. And has the right amount of everything.

    I saw the PJ Wrigley setlist shirt going for 60 bucks. Funny how something I paid 20 for and wear ragged is worth that or more. One of my favorite shirts from any show I’ve ever been.

    I’ve been an avid runner for some time - I’ve been very lucky to have few injuries and now I’m rehabbing two one on each leg, it makes the little things like running and moving pain free….I’m happy for my luck but man I want to run again. So bad. And see shows. This is all about seeing shows, one in particular- Apollo. Please.

    I love good TV and I love TV when it dares to be different and difficult. Twin Peaks: The Return epitomizes that I doubt it'll ever be ecclipsed. Lovecraft Country dared to be brilliant and was. Loki, isn't in that category but I give Disney credit for the guts it took to make that show. So fun. Not done yet, but any time you have an alligator as a character I give you mucho credit.

    Got my vault, let the speculation begin on what Vault 11 will be. I'm only missing Vegas on vinyl and have 1 & 2 on cd...would love to see #2 on wax. That's a great show. Lived in Chicago but like many, we just weren't getting into that show. At least we have documentation.

    I was listening to Gigaton the other day (headphones) and man, those are some great lyrics. The music is mature, the album has legs...you don't often see bands continue to grow like this. I've never felt an album was mailed in but this was a step up from the last two efforts (and I love Lightning Bolt).
