(approx. 2.5 hours from start to end)
A little more laid crowd back than Saturday, but not by much. I think I heard a remark like "you're real quiet for the quiet ones, but loud when you're supposed to be". Everything repeated was equally as good as Saturday, and the "Buttholeville/Trooper" pairing was even wilder due to them saving it for last. You also know it's a good show when you lose track of how many times Cooley cracks you up over the course of the set.
Finally, and the only down side, you know that chatting at shows is getting out of hand when a taper (a friggin' taper!) decides to have a business meeting with a guy who was there videotaping the show for the band, and chooses to do so right in the tapers section during "Sands Of Iwo Jima". This guy had all of Saturday night and up to that point (and after) on Sunday to talk to this guy, but no, he has to start yapping right when Patterson starts talking about "George A". No class, no brains, especially since the band made announcements both nights about being considerate during the show. I usually try to stake out a spot near the taper's section at the Fox because it usually stays mellow around the taper gear, but if I see this guy again at a quieter show, I'm going to think twice.
at least you had tapers. For some reason now the Bay Area tapers let at least the 5th consecutive DBT show (2 this year, lat year HSBF and 2 at the Fillmore) in SF go untaped
nice setlist, we didn't get Sands of Iwo Jima or Sounds Better in the Song either night
this show was a good friend's first DBT experience of any kind, and I'm dying to hear from him to see what he thought
>> 2 this year, lat year HSBF and 2 at the Fillmore) in SF go untaped <<
Taping is prohibited at HSBG, but no matter...the bay area is severely lacking in tapers, many many shows go untaped...
Emily, the HSBF is taped like a motherfucker. Trust me....
As for the Bay Area lacking tapers, I disagree somewhat. Some of the most active and well-known tapers are Bay Area guys. There used to be a listserve called Bay Area Tapers (or something like that) and for a while everything was being taped. I think nowdays it isn't necessarily that there aren't tapers, they just aren't taping non-jam band stuff OR things that aren't the biggest names out there. When the Stones or Bruce or CSNY or whoever come through there are typically multiple sources of these shows. It's the DBT level of act that seems to be going untaped.
Just because people do tape it, doesn't mean it's allowed.
I wasn't debating that it's prohibited, I thought you were saying that it went untaped
Funny thing is, DBTs allow taping yet I don't think any SF recordings have surfaced since back when they played the Bottom of the Hill 3 years ago
Lots of stuff goes untaped in the area, Hot Buttered Rum, local boys with a following that tapes most shows and has them on the archive within a day or two...yet when they play an SF show, it's not taped.
I know lots of HSBG is taped but the no-taping policy makes it a bit harder to trade, those tapes keep a lower profile...that's the point.
Gotcha, However, last year there were quite a few HSBF sets torrented on dimeadozen
I nominate Emily to start taping!!! You see so many shows in the Bay...so let's get that sister a rig!! Orange Co. is musically impoverished...we need help emily!
by the way, they only played at a fest down here...I couldn't make it and have been listening to some of the dirt underneath shows on the archive...bummed i missed 'em!!!
Cooley's humor this night was so over the top. What a fantastic run of shows, Saturday was amazing, really long setlist, but Sunday's show had the best pace for each of the songs. Very deliberate. From "Sounds Better" to "State Trooper" was pure bliss. I was grinning from ear to ear.
One of America's true treasures, great bunch of folks, awesome songs, great tour. Thanks Pat and Mike, thank you for bringing back the band to it's original roots.
