Special thanks to Ducktaper and Alison MacIver Goodson for the field reports. If anyone has audio/video/photos from this show, please email TheGourdsNews.


  1. I brought two Gourd newbies with me, and they were not disappointed. The Gourds at Gruenehall, it does not really get any better then that! If you have not seen a show here do yourself a favor and go next time.

  2. Dear D3,

    I have noticed that your sense of humor has taken on a definite edge since your recent re-employment (one hand holding up a poster and now a jab at Betty, really?).

    I think being exclusively employed by TGN suits you better ;-)


  3. yeah, I agree. this job sh*t is for the birds. and you're right about the poster comment directed at ryan...but the betty ford notation is true. that's just good reporting!

  4. The irony is that I'm about to lose my job. But this may present more TGN field reporting opportunities!


  5. irony? no way...more like synchronicity! you can just take over, backes! it's only about 2 hours a day of computer searches and posting song lists, pictures, and vids. about 15 hours a week, I guess. sometimes more. pay is $0.

  6. Well, if I have some significant downtime I can certainly help for a while. Not sure what to do with all that pay, tho.
