In Topic: TMR to post live shows from Jack's bands on Nugs.net

Heh.  The video and audio on these streams is often a little out of sync, so the slo-mo, with everything lagging behind five-ten seconds, certainly doesn't help matters.  I was a bit annoyed with it too, but I feel like I've been too critical the past few nights, so I didn't want to harp on it.

 

Anyways, I finally figured out why the View New Content tab wasn't working for me for the past, sheesh, year or more:  the "Just Items I Follow" thing was check-marked.  I don't recall clicking that on, but who knows...

I watched.  Another very enjoyable set.  That slo-mo thing the producers were doing was....interesting.

Well, the Racs setlists are sometimes only 14 songs, and often the concerts are only about 1 hr 15 minutes (mine was).  Jack solo is usually 90-100 minutes.  The Racs shows being shorter was understandable when they only had one or two albums, but now, it'd be nice if the current shows were consistently 90 minutes, at the very least.  Jack's not by himself out there on guitar, after all.

 

Re: tonight's show, waaaaay better sound than Night One.  I could barely hear Dean's guitar on Help Me Stranger last night, but it was loud and clear tonight.  The kids dancing on stage during the Donovan song was very cute, too.  And finishing with Carolina Drama over Steady is always welcome.  Very enjoyable set, and now I'm intrigued to see what they play tomorrow night.

 

Tam even got a little bit of Intimate Secretary!

But is it Hugo Strange, or Doctor Strange? ;)

I would be amazed if they don't pull out some tunes they haven't played yet on this tour. It's a 3-night stand at the Ryman and that means something to them. Plus, they know all three nights are being livestreamed.  Together was a surprise last night, so I'm hoping for Intimate Secretary and Many Shades of Black (probably hoping against hope for Five on the Five, too).  

Yeah, I'll probably check in at the beginning of the stream to see how much they're switching it up.  Man, there was a lot of waiting before the show began last night, though.  I don't think they got onstage until around 9:30pm CT.  It also bugged me a little, given how relatively short these sets are, how Jack went borderline silent with the guitar on more than a handful of occasions, causing the performance to go a little slack at times.  I mean, sure, the spaces between the notes matter, and it's fine to try to build anticipation for the next aggressive guitar eruption, but sometimes it just feels like stalling.

 

I'm not really a big fan of Together, BTW.  To me, it's got really bland lyrics and a so-so melody.  It's one amongst many reasons their debut album is far and away my least favourite of the three.  But yeah, give us more deep cuts off Consolers, or b-sides, or covers:  I'm all for that.
