Deadstein October 10, 2008

With sundown today comes the end of Rosh Hashanah and the beginning of Deadstein’s jam.  We are scheduled to play on a tight a tight schedule to make it just after the holiday and within the schedule to jam with some of our good friends.  On my bike ride home a Hasidic guy in his mid 20’s with his 5-6 year old son stopped me on the bike path in the woods and asked me if I was Jewish and wanted to hear the Shofar.  I obliged him and the 3 of us said a prayer and he blew the shofar for what seemed like a long time.  In any case it scared all the deer away and gives me a very positive vibe from which to approach tonight’s jam.

It’s the first day of October and it looks like it may rain but it was a pretty nice day today.  In the world, this week the economy fell apart more so than last week but at least Deadstein goes on.  If people would have invested in Deadstein instead of bad mortgages they would still be broke but at least they would be happy.  While the market is a roller coaster you cannot count on, Deadstein is the Rock of Freakbralter which you can count on Long live Deadstein and Happy New Year.  While the world around us is crumbling like a cheap house of cards, Deadstein’s strong foundation provides the stability to get many of us through these difficult times.

So for a Wednesday night in the Fall, there was little traffic coming in.  Although there was a show at the club down the street I was able to get a good spot and I moved into our favorite Studio 2.  We were expecting a few guests including Alan D and JD so we had equipment and mics for them but they didn’t show.  Who did show were Scott Bayer, Dan-Dan the Van Man and our brother in arms, Michael.  It was great to see every one and we had a good night.  It ended up being the 5 of us with Jason on lead and we played lots of good songs at sometimes in funky order.

I recall a first set Stella Blue, we closed with a Tennessee Jed, had an early Brokedown, and so on and so forth.  We even pulled off the Music Sugaree Music 8-7-82 stlye and it was good.  I think we blew Dan the Van Man  away with that one.  As well as the Stella Blue.  He seemed to be a bit mesmerized by it all.  And there’s a lot to be mesmerized by a Deadstein.

Yummy, Yummy. It was good when ti when down.

I brought in some junk food for all of us to enjoy and some how luckily out of my bag of tricks I found a fresh yummy peach for Michael.  That was a nice movement.  Speaking of which we once again played a song for Carroll over the cell phone and had that Mitzvah on our souls.

It will be great to listen to some of the highlights once Rich posts them.  I alos have some video to process and post so look for that down below and stay tuned to Deadstein.  I think we are playing Monday next week. Welcome to Fall.  By the way you may enjoy Scrap’s agility trials from the past weekend with Kathy.  Check them out.
