    Tyler Childers...I'm a sucker for good country/blue grass fiddle and lyrics about cocaine.

    Robert Earl retiring from performing live in September, says he wants to quit the road while he still loves the grind, can't argue with that.

    I'll have to get another show or two in.

    Civic Auditorium is a shit venue for a place designed for live music, but Jinks freaking hammered it.

    That said, it would take the Turnpike Troubadours for me to go to another show there. Sound booth is stage left rather than in the back so its a ton of reverb and poor quality.

    As someone who tries to catch 40 touring shows a year (we're double income, grown kids so its a good hobby) please keep this is mind :

    Nobody is going to watch the 75 minute shaky video you took of a concert, but should you absolutely need to make one, please turn your screen brightness all the way down. And the flash is useless 200' away.

    I saw Childers & Sturgill in there and it was terrible. Childers wasn’t too bad but the sound was so bad for Sturgill we left. Idk why they book concerts in that crap hole

    Anybody seen Bob Dylan recently and have a take on if he's still worth going to see? Regardless of the type of performance he's putting on these days, there's a long list of absolute legends I had chances to see before they passed and didn't do it. I know I'll regret it if I let that list get any bigger because it doesn't feel like there will ever be more like them (John Prine, BB King, Ralph Stanley just off the top of my head where I decided I was too busy or didn't want to pay for the ticket day of).

    The better half sent me a thing that said "Ragweed crawled so Turnpike could fly".

    100% accurate. The "napster generation" that found good music rather than eating what was in the bowl.
