Fantastic times await

Re: tour starts friday! roll call?

I'm anxiously awaiting set lists until they come out my way in July.  It will be great to see how broad and varied they are night to night!

Re: tour starts friday! roll call?

I'll be at the show in Detroit. It's a few days before my 33rd birthday, and it's a Friday show. So I'm taking the damn day off of work, getting a babysitter for the kids, and my wife is gonna take me to Founder's Brewing so I can drink too much beer as preparation for singing too much at the show.

Don't drink too much though — stay sparkling! smile

I'll hopefully see ya there! My hair is weird and long now, but we'll probably be able to recognize one another. We've done it before!

I'm glad it's at The Stick, again. The Loving Touch Ferndale show, last time, (even though I was able to work it, and get a multitrack soundboard recording) still, kinda sucked. Fun and decent show, just not the right venue. They'll never get the sound right, even when I'm there doing it myself! Hahahaha! The room makes all the difference in the world.

PLUS, they just re-vamped The Stick, so I've heard that the venue has gotten exponentially better in quality. Still haven't seen a show there yet, since the re-vamp. I couldn't be more thrilled to have it be The Jicks!

now, they're gonna burn me....

Hey Matt, I haven't been back to the Stick since they came to their senses and turned it back to an indie club. So we'll see. Even the old edition of it always had a good sounding room, so if it's the same, I can't complain!

The last show at the Loving Touch... man, I am blown away by your soundboard recording because it sounds GREAT but in that room it was just all mud. I hope the Jicks never go back there. Sorry to the LT owners or whatever, but it's just not a good room for music.

I couldn't agree more. I think that that's the exact reason that they went back to The Stick, for this tour.
The Loving Touch has made some improvements since that Wig Out Tour show, but still... It's 100%, the room. And, STILL, TO THIS DAY, THEY WILL NOT RE-TREAT THE ROOM!!!! It's an embarrassment to my line of work, and all of the bands and engineers that come through town, and so on, and so forth.... Ugh.
Honestly, I still even like the joint, and most of the staff and owner, but it just wasn't made for good quality sounding shows, is all. Haha!

now, they're gonna burn me....

Re: tour starts friday! roll call?

No Wisco Jagbags on this board?

No one checkin in from the show tonight? No one to report on Steve’s mood, room mix, or obtrusive observers?

Re: tour starts friday! roll call?

Pittsburgh tonight!! anyone else gonna be there?

I'll be at the next three nights. I know some other cats will be in Detroit, haven't heard anyone chime in about Cleveland...

I'll do my best to report accurately

If you see a slightly greying bearded dude with a significantly pregnant wife in tow, that's me, say hi

Re: tour starts friday! roll call?

Grog Shop in CLE tonight...

Re: tour starts friday! roll call?

I'll be at the Detroit show tonight with my wife after spending a couple hours pounding brews at Founder's.

Re: tour starts friday! roll call?

Came down early for dinner and parked at the venue, SM motoring around the SUV. Swallowed the urge to fanboy him and went to dinner.

Re: tour starts friday! roll call?

So sorry for being this person but Jake just sold me his hat since they ran out. I'm losing it.

I think they ought to be selling sparkling vintage girlie stuff — purses, tanks, etc. Autentico vintage.

And then also Pave- and Jicks-branded ViewMasters, hand fans, and letterpress posters.

I mean, if I was their marketing/merch person.

Quick, find a drum kit and see if any of Jake's powers transferred along with his head sweat!

Re: tour starts friday! roll call?

They did not. Show was excellent. More later.

No worries, next time for sure. After seeing some of your photos and videos I think we were standing really close!
