Farrar instrumentation

Am I on a roll or what?

While thinking of lyrics, put some time into the best instrumental moments of a Farrar/SV/UT song.

Again, I shall lead off:

Cahokian when the maracas start to be shook. Very sweet, and just the perfect touch to the song.

How about:

"Handcuffs hurt worse when you've done nothing wrong"

If I ever owned a factory, Grindstone would play on the PA before every shift.

Ah Barstow, filled with great lines. Such as:

Jay in Europe

Am I the only one to find it humorous that Jay finishes his European leg of the tour in Amsterdam?

"Sorry I can't I'm going to the Gay Mens Choir Christmas concert." Poor Jay, he's being stood up for this? If he only knew. SonWilco, be sure to share with all how the boys rendition of Silver Bells went. " . . . hear them ring, ding-a-ling . . ." I guessing there might be more than one jolly elf at...

Well then, let's liven the place up shall we.

I proclaim a Jay Farrar drinkin' party for the board.

On December 5, starting at 10pm EST, we will all sit at the computer, jam Farrar or Son Volt or Tupelo on 11 and DRINK.

We will post all night long.

That should get things going.

Who's with me?

Since there has been some mention of Tim Easton here. He'll be playing at Andyman's Treehouse in Columbus, Ohio on Thursday, December 4. If you are not familiar with Andyman's, it probably will hold all of 80 people where the music is being played, and some of those spots will be behind a tree (thus...

How about some Lyle Lovett? There's entertainment in those lyrics.

Good call on the Tim Easton and John Prine.

Frank Black has a good, twisted way of putting things lyrically also.

Birdy's is at the corner of 71st and Keystone. I think it's a fairly new venue, but don't hold me to that. The place appears to hold about 500 or so - mainly standing, but there is seating in a small balcony. All in all, not too bad of a place to watch a show, and as I mentioned before, the sound wa...

I just going to assume that you're posting this because you have every Bob Dylan song memorized.

For drug induced paintings without the drugs, allow me to suggest Tom Waits.

Indy Show 10/23/03

Holy shit can Jay rock!! This is the third time I've seen the man (first with Son Volt in Columbus and then with Mark Spencer in Cleveland) and was by far and away the best of the three - hands down. The set was as has been listed in other posts for the most part (even though, I don't recall the thi...

Birdies - Indianapolis

Will be making the trek to Indy for the show October 23. Wondering if anyone could share the set up of the place? Seats, no seats? Large, small? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?

I'm familiar with the area that the bar is in, just wondering about the place.
