Just got my Preservation Hall Midnight Preserves tix! Woo-hoo.

I've never been to the Marin County Fair but last time I saw LL at Jazzfest, Cesar said from the stage, "This is the best place on earth right here." Talk about food offerings!

Well done, Crack!
I played a very similar '58 at Norman's Rare Guitars last year. A steal at $29,000. Needed a refret, though.

With that said, jazz continues to release new music.
The product is not going to sell millions, maybe not even >10k.
But new music continually comes out, gets performed live, and by all accounts the musicians seem to make a living.....but that is not pop music.
But by all accounts, pop music was always intended for the masses, and not considered for people who have high regard of its musical merits.
The difference today; lack of new, innovative rock music. Most of what is regarded as "new", is merely a regurgitated version of a past sound....aka...Greta Van Fleet....big deal, sounds like Led Zeppelin....is that supposed to get me excited? :dozey:

It's always fun to see them at the county fairs.

I think the county fairs yield some of the best DH stage banter, waxing poetic about all the delicious foodstuffs.


I think Hellpups has a good story along those lines about walking around the Marin Co Fair with Dave....

Wrong Jazzfest weekend for me. Bummer. NOLA HOB is a great venue for LL. I noticed they are not at the Fest, unless they'll be added later.

Colonel Bruce Hampton says pop music sucks today like it did in 1962 before the Beatles emerged. That is consistent with the clip I posted which compares Sgt. Pepper's (a high bar) to the crap coming out now, and analyzes the poor musical content on a technical level. That clip argues that the music industry is driving the crapification of pop music by dumbing everything down. Col. Bruce is optimistic and I hope he's right, but I think it's tougher to than ever to make a living as a musician. Unless you're a superstar there's no money in records, so that leaves live shows, mainly one-nighters, which are a young man's game. I hope Col. Bruce is right and we are on the cusp of a new musical era but the financial issues for musicians, especially with the nationwide economic insecurity for all but the super-rich, have to be addressed. People have to eat. Maybe there could be a network of music-lovers that funds bands like GoFundMe does for other causes. I think LL even tried this for one show but I suspect it needs to be a secure network of funding, not a one-off for single show. I'd love to hear other ideas.

How the hell did I miss you the night you pulled tape at the Vista Room? That residency was some of the best I ever did see him play. I miss Bruce too.

I just noticed they'll be playing the House of Blues on April 29th. This is during Jazzfest. They'll also be coming back to the Marin County Fair on Tuesday, July 3rd. It's always fun to see them at the county fairs.
