Jam – 2011-05-12 – Carroll’s

With Scott at the Warren Haynes show with my brother Jay at the Beacon, we were able to wrestle Coffee-Boy to come back and play a week with us.  He was feeling good as he had recently setup his kit in his house and has been playing a bit.  Not as much ferrous oxide on those sticks as the last time and it showed.

We had a few glitches to start the night.  While parking was good, when we got to the lobby of Carroll’s the elevator was shit out of order.  That means six long hard flights up to Carroll’s hauling my guitar crap all the way up.  After a couple of weeks of non-stop bike commuting, my thighs were burning hauling that crap up the stairs.  I guess I was doing better than Alan because I caught him resting somewhere around the 4th floor before getting psyched for the final climb to six.

When we got there things were good, after getting them to fix the one bad channel in the PA, it all seemed to work and sound good.  I thought were were playing pretty well all of us.  More relaxed than I would have expected, and tat was a good thing.  Hopefully Coffee-Boy gets his juices flowing from all the good stuff that happens.

We had Coffee select most of the songs for the night and I like the selection.  Fifteen songs seems weak in comparison to the previous several weeks where we used the setlists and achieved great numbers, so there is something to be said for that. I’ll be excited to hear this weak, hopefully our recording issue is resolved, I’ll know as soon as I click on one of the MP3s.

To hear the MP3s, take a stab at the links below:

    TheGind is on top of his Webmastering game and I am loving it. Next-day posts are so retro – I almost expect Menaker to chime in. It’s making me want to design a setlist flyer.
    The playing was good. It was nice to have CoffeeBoy behind me again. I look forward to more.
    We also saw some of the danger associated with those ‘eyes-rolled-back-in-head’ jams we were discussing last post. We were in the middle of a groovy extended jam and I was somewhere between Tatooine and the Andromeda. Constellation in the year 8418 and TheGind was trying to get my attention by yelling my name. Nothing. As he moved closer to me in his next attempt to get my attention, I fell back into my body as I sensed the electrons in his fingertips approaching my arm. It was at that moment when I leaped 10 ft. into the air screaming like Cindy Brady. it took a few rounds of the verse for my heart to get back into my chest.
    Psychedelic jamming is a tough business.

    I think were are going to have to eventually “Clockwork Orange” Kevin’s eyeballs in order to keep them looking forward. What movie do I eventually envision for Scott, “Pinocchio?”

    Pinocchio? I would think something more like Sleeping Beauty…..

    We need the strings to hold your head and arms up.

    Hey Captain Kirk. Glad you got past the neutral zone, where no freak has gone before. We do however need a way to communicate to execute sharp turns, especially at the bounds of the known universe. While most of the communication hopefully is in the music, even in deep space the Gind sometimes needs to use turn signals and if we don’t all look up and turn together, the forces will tear loose from the axis, and the Enterprise gets totaled.

    So I am still a proponent of the eyes-rolling-back deep space excursions, we just all need to use our peripherals, just in case we need to take that exit coming up fast when we are four lanes over.
