I totally understand this point too - and I’m not trying to shame anyone for wanting to return to normal. I’m just burned out, no one on my team has taken a vacation in a year, we all got exposed to +COVID patients multiple times, we’ve been in homeless shelters and long term care facilities and half of us are just… done and the other half are trying go back to normal. I’m thankful I work with THE BEST people and we’ve all supported each other through this.

tldr maybe I need to buy a Boss FZ-2 clone?

Build yourself one!
To my lay mind, the lobster's behavior in the kettle appears to be the expression of a preference; and it may well be that an ability to form preferences is the decisive criterion for real suffering.

I’m just being a real salty pickle lately. We’ve been under lockdown in some form since October in Toronto and I think people are ready to snap. I stood in line outside for 30 minutes to buy a tube of caulking the other day and you see pics everywhere else of life returning to normal….. :mad:

I mean not EVERYWHERE else but you know what I mean

I'll be happier about gigs when I'm vaccinated but what I really miss is rehearsal spaces. Haven't cranked an amp properly since February of last year :(
good deals are here.
escapecraft is here.

VERY MUCH.
I have been lucky to crank the amp sometime during November, but it feels like ages ago anyway. :(

Very much this! I bought my Peavey Butcher last year and haven’t moved the volume past “1” this whole time

Tinariwen here. In the fall.

Flaming Lips early 2022

But in New Orleans, local music has been coming back by bits. Seen a couple things recently, nearly full festival schedule starting up soon and into the fall. Lots of push to get tourists coming through again.

in the more-or-less DC area: Bob Mould at the 9:30 9/18, Flaming Lips at the Anthem 11/16, possibly Jackson Browne in Charleston WV 8/6 or at the Merriweather in Maryland on 8/10. yeah, i'm a bit eclectic. i've been fully vaccinated since mid-March, and the DC area is high on the percent-of-residents-vaccinated scale.

Saw George Clanton last night. I guess I'm old or something? (yes) I like his music but for some reason it felt like he was doing karoake with his own songs...the kids sure seemed to like it though.

Black Midi on Saturday. That show is more my speed.

Well they opened for themselves and played “Born to Run”

So far so good.

I went to see Lydia Lunch Retrovirus about a month ago and then my band played two shows the following week.

Nobody got sick, thankfully, and we should all have boosters by our next show.

We are hoping to do a tour next year, but we will see what happens.


I did see another show back in the summer, but it was lightly attended, and outdoors, in a sort of courtyard.
