Too bad I wont be able to attend this year, as I am moving to the Bay Area in May. Hopefully, I will be able to join you guys next year. Everyone have a blast.
Where are you moving?
We are not sure yet. Probably East Bay like Berkeley or Lake Merritt area. SF proper is just too expensive. I've been asking a bunch of buddies/relatives their suggestion and everybody tells us something different. I've heard that Oakland is kinda sketchy but the Lake Merritt area is alright.
Just bought tickets to Pavement at the Greek and Caribou at the Independant, so it cuts the loss of missing Sasquatch a little bit. Now if I can just get some LCD and BSS tickets, I'll be halfway there.
You live in the Bay Area, right? You going to any of those shows?
It is true that searching a bands name on YouTube can lead to some very strange results, its nice having someone with knowledge of the band post the video for you. The comment about Ween on youtube is so true, none of their good videos come up at first.
Exactly. People that are familiar with a band posting their favorite youtubes is much more of a service than a hindarence.
I decided to give Evil Urges another try the other day after not listening to it for a few months and I must say something about it finally clicked with me. I'm really enjoying that album now. But yea, Z and Okonokos are top-priorities for a new MMJ listener.
If you can pinpoint what clicked, please let me know. I start listening to the album, get to "peanut butter puddin' surprise," and shut it off as I shudder.
Best thing to start with is Z. Its the most accessible album IMHO. If you don't like it then forgetaboutit.
Does the version of One Big Holliday on the Sasquatch festival page music player do anything for you? If not, then MMJ is probably not for you. But if you like that, you will like Z and the live show on Okonokos. I know it sounds a little southern rockish but if you can get with that you will really enjoy their stuff.
