Beale Street Music Festival
Please Read the
General Notes and Disclaimer:
1. At the beginning of Get Back on the Train, I informed the chick in front of me I had on a mic.
As you will hear, she proceeds to tell me to get away, and not to "shush" her. I never said
be quiet, I just asked her not to yell at me. She kept turning around and yelling right into
my face. I was baffled, I don't quite understand why she had to turn around to yell. Everyone
else around me was aware I had a mic, and with the exception of this girl & her boyfriend,
was curtious enough to limit their conversation, or to move away. I didn't even have to explain
this. Anytime someone said anything directly to me "Can I borrow your lighter?", all I had
to do was simply point at the mic, and they didn't speak to me the rest of the evening. Simple
enough you would think. I did have to answer several questions throughout the show, but
people got the idea.
2. Also note that it monsooned for five hours leading up to this show. The acoustic set was
precipitated by the need to uncover the equipment, and get the sound ready, which you will
here was still screwed up for the first part of Night Speaks. It was also quite windy, but it
is not too noticable.
3. Trey mentions reading reviews online presumably after the Virginia show, and responds.
4. All this being said, the show was fun, the music was generally good, and I look forward to good
things to come. Good things come to those who wait.
