Amazing. More creative and influential than 95% of the bands "on topic" on this board

I admire them for taking a stand in what they believe -- good to see people with ethics and a backbone who will backup what they spout with action. In the end, though, I think they piss people off and add fuel to the fire more than going through with the show and donating proceeds or something similar. But, I still respect them for walking the walk.

We got in line around 4:30a (shop opened at 9a) and I got everything on my list. It's fun to hang out with friends in line getting excited about music and I like to support my local shop as much as possible. Haul: A-ha - Live EP Brandi Carlile - Live at KEXP Brandy Clark - Homecoming Queen/Girl Next Door 7" Deftones - B-Sides and Rarities Mew - And the Glass Handed Kites Muse - R

> we have general admission to gigs which I know you dont in the US (for the major band anyway). Depends on the venue and the band -- we have plenty of GA shows in large venues. Most theaters are assigned seating. Saw Muse from the GA floor here in Washington DC for about $80USD yet Duran Duran was charging $160 (after fees) for assigned seats (+ more for "VIP") at the same venue.

Grace Potter is still amazing live -- some of the Nocturnals are in her touring band. I liked her solo record, though not as much as the last 3 GP&N albums. If you like their music, Guster and The Mavericks are also powerful live machines. The Mavs will have you dancing all night.

QuoteAndrew BUT is there ANY fricken country song that doesn't mention growing up, reminiscing on the porch and the good old days?? Tons. But you won't find them on country radio.

Same tracks as "Never Look Back" from '91, though different order. Don't have my copy in front of me to compare if it's re-recorded... but it sounds like it.

I usually pay $25 at most of the shows I go to. $30 max -- anything above that has to be an amazing design and a band I love (not just like). Tour dates a huge plus -- I will take the shirt with tour dates over any other regardless of design. Album artwork alone is lazy.

They became incredibly generic to my ears once Andre Matos left. Love the first three records, don't ever listen to anything else.

I think the problem is that it doesn't take the country schtick far enough. It's not going to appeal to country fans and it's going to alienate folks who dislike the mere hint of a mandolin or fiddle in rock music. He could've easily left all those little country touches and have a stronger record.

Eating my words here, but it actually works quite well despite the country trappings which are completely superfluous. Could've lost the mandolins and the songs would be that much better.

Everybody does it differently. I think with the Rush downloads specifically (I bought Counterparts), the download card says you can download it twice. But once you download it, it's regular mp3 files (or whatever format you choose to download, if it's an option) which you can move about freely to whatever devices you wish to.

Just popped up on my Facebook feed that JSS is playing near me in Baltimore next week! Anyone have any idea what the setlist will be like? Digging the new songs I've heard, but there's like 5 additional bands on the bill on a school night...

If I want the old stuff, I can pop in a DVD. I applaud them for playing new stuff, though I prefer the last album to the newest one.
