Actually, I meant to add this to the previous thread, but since I goofed - I'll go ahead and add a little more, here.
I was really fortunate to be able to tweak some work travel to spend a few days in NYC, catch some great music, and of course spend some time with some old and new Forum fans. The culmination, of course, were the Joe's shows- particularly the late show and the following party. Both Joe's sets were excellent, but the 2nd one seemed to be a bit more electric - there was something a bit more in the air - a great performance at a real intimate venue.
I heard three versions of the new Tower this trip (2 at Joe's last night and one at Tarrytown) and each one was better than the last. Starting with the Tower in the late show was great! These are going to be some great recordings for the live shows!
Enjoyed spending some time with Linus, Paul, Greg, Tom, Candace, Ben and the rest of the crazy VT fans. Not to mention the band and accompanying rock stars!
Can't believe I get to see them again in a few months, even!
