OH MAN!  The band just absolutely, positively nailed this one in every possible way, in one of the country's iconic venues.  The Cains, built in the 1920's is a registered National Historic landmark, and the site of weekly radio broadcasts of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys waaaaay back in the day.  I hadn't been to a show here in over 30 years, every time I went, it seemed the band fully recognized the importance of the stage and gave all it had.  Tonight was no exception.  Great energy from a very large crowd, every guy in the band was just fantastic.  Again, a pretty wide stage so everyone was pretty spread out, and being inside the PA, the sound was flawless, with lots of horn.  First time I've seen plexiglass in front of JJ's amps, so no quite as much of his guitar up front, but pretty much a perfect dose.

Speaking of JJ's guitar, he didn't play much of it the first third of the show, with a couple opportunities to stroll the stage during Woman and Brighter Days.  Once he did pick it up for Your Lady, it was a long, long time before he gave it up again, just trading ridiculous riffs with Art during Your Lady.  Georgia Warhorse was a highlight with Trube just going apeshit with his lap gadget all over AC's cymbals.  Florabama was such a joyful groove, one of many times Dennis had the crowd roaring.  Todd's bass absolutely nasty.  War was as powerful as ever, Ybor City just a romp, as JJ finally let go of the guitar.  Dennis again wowed the crowd during Slow Hot, Art spanking the tamborine.  Ho Cake featured some great stuff from Anthony, as well as guest wailing from Shawn Eckels of Speakeasy, a band that opened for the guys Dec 30-31 of '12.  JJ was just flabbergasted as Shawn absolutely killed it, teaming with Trube at the end for a battle of guitar prowess.

An extra song in the encore again tonight, with the crowd reasonably attentive during This River.  An incredible Lochloosa followed, as JJ has developed a new guitar solo, similar to the one before, but different enough to feel really fresh and powerful.  On Fire ended in cacophony, with Art, Dennis and JJ widening the hole in the roof they blew out earlier.  Just a tremendous show all around.

Just callin' 'em as I see 'em.  The band is just really rollin' right now with an incredible chemistry.

Sunny, how many extra points do I need to redeem for some chocolate covered bacon?

Scotty, you and GMGirl should be seein' some magic down there in March.  Not enough time for the band to cool off too much.

I think she meant 117 (at least[biggrin]

The last few shows I've been to haven't even had a roll call much less any kind of post from me.  And for at least the last three I made sure to keep up with the setlist!!!  Just the other day I realized I had not posted pictures on facebook from my last SEVEN shows - totally unlike me.  O'well, sometimes life just gets in the way...
