Ridin' the Railroad


Three sweet nights with Railroad Earth. Yes, three.

There are some really good reasons to spend more than one evening with a good band.

First, you will hear more of their material and sometimes the same tunes done differently. Unlike typical pop bands who play the same sets night af night a good band gives you something new each night.

Second, a good band draws good fans.

Third, and most important: you can think you just went to a fine show, an excellent show and the next night think the same. Then, on the third night just get blown away when the previous two shows are simply dwarfed. Yep, RRE's Eugene show (1/14) was one of those shows.

Whew! Perhaps more in a later post.

I can't wait to see 'em at the Fillmore this weekend! Glad you had fun -- I heard that the third night was over-the-top, dripping with all sorts of gooey jams. A good friend told me that the Seven Story Mountain was THE best he ever heard them do.
