This week? Shit if phellow is away on business and it's not a Bluegrass show they're weak every week when it comes to live music. Heck in all the years I lived there I bet phellow & carpet are the only 2 I saw out at a show more than 5 times.

In Carler's defense, he did go see Slim Cessna a couple of years ago based on my recommendation. Not bluegrass.
Brez, how any times you seen Slim Cessna's Auto Club? Fucking badass Denver band.

It’s a Tues show at the Croc for a genre I’m not remotely interested in so it’s a shock I’m not going.

Saw a wook with a spafford hat at Greensky this weekend.

I guess that means spafford is finally big time.

like.

Stoked for a weekend show @ Barkleys. Mountain venues usually get the shaft w/ week day shows so bands can do the bigger markets on the weekend.
In for my first time seeing Spafford. ETA~ Turkuaz is the night before.

Brez~ you can stay w/ us.

There are some really great venues on that run.

I'm in for Atlanta on 1/27. Wait... that's 2018. Wrong thread? Also probably in for the 420 Fest, depending on what day they play. Ideally, all the bands I want to see play the same day, like they did last year so I don't have to buy the weekend pass.

are they really rising anymore than the other 12th tier jambands out there? Bands like Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Papadosio, Aqueous all seem to be equally, if not more popular than Spafford and routinely sell out clubs here in Boston and play 2 night stands, etc.

I think there is a lot of Spafford fluffing on this board so it seems like they might be bigger than they actually are.

Quote:
For Years Brian Moss and Jordan Fairless tried to form a jamband in the remote city of Prescott, Ariz. When they finally struck gold with Spafford, the humble music scene of the American Southwest became less of a hindrance and more of a sonic incubator. In a flash, their high-energy improvisations attracted a loyal fanbase.

“They needed something to latch on to,” Moss says regarding the regional transplants from the jam-centric Northeast and West Coast that comprised their earlier audience. “Spafford really filled that void for people [in Arizona].” The band’s popularity grew by word-of-mouth and they set off on long drives to play shows and heighten their exposure. “We would wrap towels in ice and hang them around our necks as we were driving to California in 120 degrees in the desert with no A/C,” Moss laughs.

The band gained another leg up when they started playing late-night after-parties for heavy hitters like Widespread Panic and Furthur. Now, Spafford is one of the jam scene’s hottest prospects, touring with Umphrey’s McGee last winter, rocking festival stages coast to coast and laying down exciting, intricate performances that spawn impassioned analyses by fans. Recently, drummer Cameron Laforest joined their roster, finalizing a lineup that also includes Moss (vocals/ guitar), Fairless (vocals/bass) and Andrew “Red” Johnson on keys. “Cameron is an extraordinary player with a lot of insight and a lot of natural ability,” Moss notes “We’ve only just begun what this new lineup is capable of.”

According to Moss, Spafford documents everything they play, including rehearsals and performances. That archival ethos generated their latest release, the hour-long, Abaculus: An Improvisational Experience. Recorded at the band’s rehearsal space, dubbed “The Pound” (because of the nearby hordes of feral cats in downtown, industrial Phoenix), Abaculus is a mini-study in the spontaneous, jam-oriented mission of Spafford writ large. “We decided to kick out a jam, and just have fun with it,” Moss explains. “There was no planning, no more direction than what you listen to. We weren’t calling things out. We didn’t say anything to each other. We just jammed. And, for me, that’s the most beautiful music in the world—just creating music out of thin air.”

I've been digging the Taste of Fall 2017 album on Spotify and hope to catch them live soon. They are playing a tiny venue here in Jacksonville on Saturday, February 3rd which WOULD be perfect but... my baby is due on 1/31! Maybe next time or @ the Suwannee later next year.
