  • Holy crap! The ballad of me and my friends is fantastic!!! Love frank turner. Very close second with paul westerberg. And the guitar opening for gary clark jr is brilliant! So far just play this week over again at the end of the month for a best of show.

  • And there’s only about 10 more shows til the end of the year show (shows) start. Thats still about 100 more songs added into the mix. Good luck.

    • Thanks for listening George. Maybe another week will agree with you more. Glad My Oh My did something for you. That’s my goal find you a next new favorite song. I always hope you find more but I settle for one.

  • Def, Gary Clark Jr – does anyone hear the blend of Jimi Hendrix & Robin Trower (Procol Harum lead guitar)?

  • Finally was able to get to this week’s NEXT show. I was excited to see bunch of my perennial favorites: Westerberg, Dinosaur Jr., The Mountain Goats. And a few other favorites like Frank Turner (may be a perennial soon), Dr. Dog, AC Newman and Gary Clark Jr. And those ended up being my favorites for the week as well. With a special mention to Van Morrison who is a legend and it’s nice to hear from him, but this one was nothing special (IMHO).

    I guess I have to give it to Westerberg just because, it’s so good to hear from him again and I’m excited about the possibility of a Mats reunion.

    But give it up too for the awesome guitar work from Gary Clark Jr.

    And what a great album from Dinosaur Jr., how many bands make a come back and put out new work as good or better than their earlier work??

    Another great week. Keep it up! Thanks.

  • Oh, and the Mountain Goats deserve a mention too. The horns were a nice addition and Darnielle’s voice and lyrics are as awesome as ever.

  • Love Tristan Prettyman’s voice – always picks me up on a Monday. And Van Morrison — good choice as well 🙂

  • Agreed Allyn plus I am quite happy she got rid of the Mraz guy. Good choice.

    And as always I love reading Rob’s comments. Insightful. Thanks everyone.
