Gimme some Moe.

Later days, the preamble of Moe.’s music is the best thing could have occur to life and to make it better Monday night was my freshman effort to be an official Moe.Ron! Previously, in this post, I have appraised Wormwood a big time, and oh boy any thing I say will be less. To put it simpler, I was entirely blown away for four hours (four hours seven minutes concert to be precise, with a 20 minute break after the first set).

Moe. initiated the show with stranger than fiction, a popular show starter and in the first set they covered two of my fave. tracks crab eyes and four. The jam bridges were extra-ordinary, jazzier than normal, full credit goes to Loghlin’s dual job on xylophone and percussions (and regular drinking of Getorade!). “Thunderfinger Derhak” was even more superior to all studio & live (Warts and all vol. 1 to vol.4) albums, I was following his bass notes and progressions without any twinkle! Chuck and Al were as usual brilliant, (though Al was little tired at the end of second set) they switched the lead roles numerous times so fast, I was really amazed. Often I was looking to Chuck’s flashy guitar works and in the next second it was Al with the lead! They controlled the speed so accurately I was even more astonished that every thing they are doing live! Hats off to Vinnie for maintaining the rhythm pattern throughout.

The highlight of the second set was the first jam and sudden crossover to acoustic letter home. The best part of Moe. is the “teases” of different songs; the second set contained a lot “teases” from kids and other Wormwood songs (pity I missed teases from china cat sunflower which is pretty common in their shows!).

Before the encore, the crowd was chanting their favorite encore tracks (well me and my pal GTom were screaming for rebubela and havah nagilah) but they launched a neat jazz rendition of time (the Floyd one)! At the end part of the song (“the song is over, thought I’d something more to say…”) they started flashing their skills of lots of funks and jazz (I smelled a little of various galactic (SCI) versions which made it more special). Splendid blending and they moved into don’t f*** with flo to wrap off.

The fraternity of jam followers were familiar, 90% were in Garcia/dead t-shirt (rest in Phish, SCI, Keller Williams, and Disco Biscuits). I was in a String Cheese Incident hood :) Made couple of new friends and signed up as a moe.ron.

Do catch my school seniors soon!

Is there anybody Out there?

Where is my John Wayne
Where is my Prairie Son
Where is my happy ending
Where have all the cowboys gone...

Knock knock...

Song of the day - Big Foot ( from the album Live Art - Bela Fleck & the Flecktones)

Truckin' in style along the avenue...

Sometimes we ride on your horses, sometimes we walk alone,
Sometimes the songs that we hear are just songs of our own.....

Wish I was here 15 years back...

Song of the day - Elvin , from the album Soul Serenade (Derek Trucks Band)

Must Pass Away....

This time in year it snows. Mr. X wonders at night beyond the window for the moonlit, the fleeting glimpse of tomorrow and the infancy of cotton snows. Sometimes, he reminds of a vast sea beach with radiant lights sparkling on the shore shared with some unknown fun. Do both the worlds have something in common?
A world is so far and never can be committed to win again as it was. However, no one reckons what to do with the futile shared laughs. It is a difficult task of walking back while sailing and holding a pincushion in the soul. But he must drop and roll.

Now the darkness only stays the night-time
In the morning it will fade away
Daylight is good at arriving at the right time
It's not always going to be this grey

All things must pass
All things must pass away....

Wish him!

Song of the day - Brown Skin from Indie.Arie


Sometimes the light’s all shinin’ on me;
Other times I can barely see.
Lately it occurs to me what a long, strange trip it’s been...

Mr. X was thinking the same, a year, a month or a day gives the world a paradigm shift; so unstable yet so easy...

a nostalgia is far better than the coveted doubts...

Song of the day - Falling Angels ; from the album Human (Nitin Sawhney).

ll Sleep when I m dead...

Before I sink, into the big sleep
I want to hear, I want to hear
The scream of the butterfly...


Absolutely no time till next thursday for any other scream else mine.
A safer and dry 2006 to all of you (deep, satchisgod, zzz, kundalini ....( I doubt if I left anyone!))

Song of the day - Sweet Melissa , - ABB.
