  1. Hey guys! I discovered you on Boot Liquor (streaming) radio about 5 years ago and have been a fan ever since. But this is the first (and by no means the last) time I've gotten to see you live. Oh man do I love you even more than before (does that make me a Gourd Head?)--don't ever stop all the good writing and playing you do! Beverly

  2. OK. I'll bite. Other than it being an awesome song that they haven't played live in too long a time, is there a reason they played it twice in a row?

  3. haha tomski, sorry...I wasn't trying to reel you in. was just posting everything at 2am and didn't have time to explain. anyway, he blew the 1st verse during the 1st version...and then decided to do the whole thing over again...only to blow the 2nd verse during the second take. pretty good stuff. especially his b/t song banter. I caught it all on video & will post it as soon as the dust settles.
