Who Was There?

According to Moonalice legend, the Mayans knew calendars. Back before the BC-AD changeover, they created a long term calendar that has been confusing the heck out of gringos ever since. If the gringos are to be believed, the world will end in three weeks, in which case this will be the final Moonalice show ever. Where some have been quick to dismiss this end-of-times talk, we are taking no chances. Chris Shaw's poster depicts our strategy. Those of us who have a space ship will watch the apocalypse from there. If you know an angel, you are invited to join the dance. Those who have a T. Rex should let it run loose. Everyone else will try to finish off their stash. Be prepared.

What was so special about this show was that I saw it in its entirety streaming live with my 26 yr old son watching from his condo in Kaimuki (Honolulu) at the same moment in time and space. I went through hell and back again in November with my wife; and to be able to chill, relax and just enjoy such high-energy, balls-to-the-wall rockin' music is a tribute to the timelessness of Moonalice's compositions.

All of Quicksilver Messenger Service's, most of Jefferson Airplane's, and all of Hot Tuna's early albums were on my turntable long before I finally discovered the brillance and electricity of the Grateful Dead's live shows in person. I was too young to go to the Carousel Ballroom and early Fillmore gigs, but the SF psychedelic sound became part of my life from 1967 to this day. Unfortunately I am unable to play my music around my house much because it pisses my wife off. I married her twice, so obviously I still haven't figured out the importance of having a partner who actually gets you, and appreciates you for who you are.

This show brought some stellar keyboard and guitar work from Pete, great vocals/harmonies from Roger, fluid riffs and pedal steel work from Barry, and steady, tight backbone that John brings to the group. My favorites are in Set 1: Live To Love, Last Frontier, Joker's Lie, You And Me, especially Eight Miles High, and Tell Me It's Okay; in Set 2: Might As Well, Wonderful World, That's Alright Mama, and the in-n-out Not Fade Away was a hotter and more fun version than I ever recall the original Grateful Dead, Phil & Friends, The Dead, or even Furthur do - and I know what I'm talking about having attended some 300 shows of those boys, at least 225 when Jerry was still The Captain (Trips)!

What I don't know is whether I can check having attended a concert if all I do is enjoy from my couch? To me that has to be sacred!

I can't wait to get to a real Moonalice show in person, to see the real deal with your amazingly good lightshow - that, by the way, reminds me of some of the late 70s when lightshows were the real deal still, before digitization and other light trickery. And oh by the way, I may be single in real time going forward - no more compromising who I am in my heart and soul!

Thank you, Moonalice.
