Re: EC plays corporate gig in New Jersey, May 4, 2018

Good find erey, but i imagine that is FULL SHOW pricing. At these events i think an hour playing is an extravagant guess. I think most of these types of appearances fall in the thirty to forty five minutes range. I could be all wet however.

Re: EC plays corporate gig in New Jersey, May 4, 2018

What do you think EC pulls in for a gig like that? $100k? MIKE...i think not. I bet he only has to guarantee 45 minutes. And with no band, overhead, roadies, busses, soundman, security, management etc...and all the hors d'oeuvres he can eat!!! a 250 limo to and from the big Apple, i will say 50 get...

Re: New Orleans JazzFest

Thanks for posting, ice nine. I was reflecting recently that Byrne was probably EC's most direct peer: "new wave" (quote-unquote) star who just kept moving creatively. I'm going to try to check out Byrne's show when it comes to my town, if I can get a decent ticket. Close...but, i give cl...

Re: What did he say? (Royal Oak, MI 1978)

Yeah, must have been an "IN" joke at the time. I think i am correct. I became quite fluent in his mumbo jumbo jibberish way of speaking in his liquor/etc. addled days.

Re: Elvis and The Imposters, Outlaw Music Festival Tour, Charlotte, May 26, 2018

I don't mind the requests, but sometimes the timing is awful, like the Two Little Hitlers moment.

Re: Elvis and The Imposters , Port Chester , March 11 2018

Again, if we see a video, we might know a bit more certainly. Upon review, it sounds like the same guy who screamed "Two Little Hitlers" about 1 second prior to the start of Almost Blue. Wildly inappropriate and not a plant IMO. Thanks doc. I always trust my instinct. I knew it was split ...

Re: Elvis and The Imposters , Port Chester , March 11 2018

I didn't think that at all. It was a semi slipshod run through of the 98 second song. And the band was just winging it merrily after E started it so quickly after being shouted. Then again, i am THE MOST GULLIBLE GUY EVER!!

Re: Thoughts on the New York Shows...

From a distance, looking at the set lists etc., it seems that there is nothing much especially new with these shows. Is that true? Seems repetitive to a certain degree. No break-out venturing? Seems still kind-of 'stuck.'? not so jardine. with the volume of long unplayed songs, the eight or so chan...
