One more time with these freaks -see gallery

I think we were "over" seeing these guys after this show

Our first time seeing Cirque- see gallery

The next night is was time for the annual Fillmore gigs with these funksters

Another Merl b-day concert- always fun

Not impressed with this show at all- stopped seeing them after this

Lindley always classic

Loved seeing him for the first time, although the sound sucked

Back to Jazz Fest in New Orleans once more:
Unfortunately this show did not meet the very high expectations
of the first gig with Trey Anastasio, Stewart Copeland, & Les Claypool.
But the opener- Garage a Trois - their second gig ever- was fantastic

Always my favorite party at Jazz Fest- the 4:20 party (roll-over)
see gallery

Sunrise show at Tip's- mandatory experience at Jazz Fest

Super great show with Karin & Kirsten- in the front balcony- awesome!

George Porter Jr.'s annual JF bash

Our last time seeing them before they broke up soon afterwards.
Good call- they sucked - the magic was gone- bummer- end of an era

Amazing Burning Man trippy tribal band

Did we like this band much?? (ha-ha)
NOLA by the Bay
And we didn't get enough NOLA music in NOLA (ha-ha),
so we took a party bus with 39 other freaks down to
Shoreline for an unforgettable day of music & zaniness.
Line up : Neville Brothers, BeauSoleil, Wild Magnolias, Rebirth Brass Band,
Kermit Ruffins, Sunpie Barnes, Los Hombres Calientes, & Zigaboo Modeliste

A blast of a weekend with a huge crew of SF freaks

Dr. Ted's "Global Challenge" Boat cruise with Vinyl
see gallery

Awesome show- especially seeing Bob

After seeing Bela Fleck at Stern Grove for free that day,
we headed south to catch our first time seeing the legendary
Pink Floyd bassist

Since we passed on High Sierra this year, we caught this jam band
at our favorite concert venue

Karl opening was the draw the venue

Our friends got us into whatever show we wanted- nice!

Not really a "concert" per se, but a concert movie of sorts
(Grateful Dead) and a really cool ticket stub
Interviews with Babatunde Olatunji, Merl Saunders, Wavy Gravy, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, and others, illuminate the influence and inspirational force wielded by the almost-mythical Jerry Garcia.

One of our favorite Brit pop bands

Co-promoter (and dear friend Karin Conn) always got us into this fun
. This year's musical line-up was one of my personal favorites

More Dead-related fun in the 100's at Shoreline, but not the epic show of last year

Something you gotta experience at least once-and for us 3 times
genuinely unique - not just another "festival"
see gallery

No Perry Ferrel spinning this year, but always interesting films

Dark Sneak Love Action indeed- Talking Heads sans David

We were so into seeing shows we took a chance on almost anything

SUPER fun after-party to the only Original Meters Reunion show
No ticket stub to the show, since we were ushering to see it for free!
Papa Grows Funk rocked the house till the wee hours

Great fun singing along to the ABBA tunes we all know (and love??)

Obligatory attendance at this SF institution with Mom

Les' final time interpreting the music of Pink Floyd's Animals

Unforgettable night- just as surprise guest George Clinton gets rolling,
we unexpectedly get transported to the 12th dimension

Next Year's Stubs
