Saw the Feelies in Brooklyn for night 2 at Rough Trade. There's no reasonable explanation that they should sound that good and perform that well. They're pretty much freaks of nature at this point and God bless 'em for it. Glen Mercer's voice and performance alone was one of the best I've ever seen him do..his vocals sounded great. Terrific setlist too. About 34 songs. Can't wait to see them in June.

Both lists look wonderful.  The Feelies are like a fine wine....

My buddy attended a "rent party" in New Jersey last month. Brenda's band Wild Carnation played and she sang all the lead vocals.  He said she was amazing!

Can't wait for the June shindig.

I went to the Feelies' 40th anniversary Rent Party in NJ in 2016. It was an absolute blast. It was a cool venue, very old school 1920's. The Feelies were also selling copies of the Yung Wu LP at the show the other night...lots of cool new merch.

Is that right? I could have sworn we met at a Social D show at one point. That IS odd if I'm wrong.

I think we were supposed to meet up in London for my bachelor party at one point, and I was flirting with meeting you and That Guy in South Dakota or some crazy place once, and that didn't pan out, so I don't think we ever worked it out. We'll have to fix that.

Post Highwater Festival report.

Great sets, great weather, decent food, well-run festival. Seemed like there were around 20% more people there this year than last.

Highlights:

St. Paul & Bones - daytime performance, seemed very much more on it than when I saw on NYE at 9:30 club.
Brandi Carlile - had never seen her before, she was really great. Great songs, band, energy, and empowerment.
M. Ward - Had never seen before; really enjoyed.
Isbell - Never gonna change.
Shovels & Rope - it's their festival, and they delivered a great set, with at least a couple of new songs.
Ian Felice - sad songs solo(ish).
Jeff Tweedy - sad songs solo.
Old 97s - Had never seen before; fun-times.
Xiao Bao Biscuit - OKONOMIYAKI
Charles Town Landing - Rough Green Snake
