    Hey John, I hear ya on the point about Larry Kirwan being of retirement age. 25 years of making kick-ass music and touring like nobody's business is more than all but a few bands can claim, which makes it all the more amazing that Cracker is about to release another album, more than 23 years after their first. The individual tracks that have been put out for early listening are stellar. While I'm loving hearing them one at a time, I'm REALLY looking forward to hearing how the whole double disc plays out in its entirety. There's something about the rhythm that develops between songs after you've listened to an album enough times to be able to hear the next song in your mind before your ears even hear the first chord of the next one.

    Hey there Sephra - we were in the bleachers at Autzen that afternoon. Amazing times were had by all (except OJ). Cracker and the Dead was nothing short of bliss.

    I was in a sky box at Autzen Stadium - University of Oregon on 1994-06-17 when OJ was on the run. I wasn't sure if what I was seeing was real or memorez. THE DEAED WERE ROCKING

    Gene they decided to "retire" instead of quit. The concert Saturday was 25 years to the day from their first concert so they deemed it fitting to end at 25 years. Also I didn't realize this until reading the NY Times that frontman Larry Kirwan is 66. Not to sound ageist but I can see where endlessly touring for the last 25 years can drain you. Not to worry it was amicable and the rest of the band members all have side gigs and day jobs. As far as the club goes check out a photo of the schematics. It is wide but not deep like the Highline. Also beer both bottled and draft a 9 dollars a piece so consider those flasks... It seems on weekends they double book the clubs too as the show ended at 10ish and they were literally pushing us out the door by 1030 so they could turn it over again.

    Hey John, good to see you on here. Sorry to hear that Black 47 is calling it quits. I love their work, but have to confess to not being very knowledgeable about what has happened "behind the music." Why are they ending it?
