I was wondering what shows any of you going to see next?

I will be at loki festival( oct 12th,My BIRTHDAY! ),the show in raleigh on oct 14th, since my sister lives there and after that I'm drivin up to new york to visits some friends which I will drag,with force if I have too, to the highline ballroom on oct 17th.

also I will be at the sarasota bluse festival(nov 1st) and than bear creek festival in nobember.

now I know ya'll gonna think I'm crazy or that I have money growin on a tree in my backyard but It all can be done if you spend your money wisely.

maybe I run into some of you 'mofros' at some of those shows...

We're going to make it to Bluesfest in Sarasota on Nov 1, and were going to Bear Creek but that's not going to work out. We're on vacation toward end of Oct and are seeing Galactic at the Orange Peel on Oct 22 in Asheville.

Rumor has it the boys will play a couple nights at the Freebird in Jax for New Year's, then the very next week hit a little Florida circuit--none of that is confirmed.

Hey axl that sounds good. Either it's of the same feel as the Bamboo Room or there's nowhere else in the Boca area for 'em to book, eh? I look forward to seeing it, but I'm still bummed about the Bamboo closing up. I wanted to ask Hollis, if you're down that way too maybe you can venture a guess for me: how far in advance do you think we ought to buy our tix?

I'm a maybe for the following -

Falls Church, VA
Richmond, VA

Things have been beyond F'ed up for me this year and I just don't know what I can make or not make. I've had to spend alot of money on a gun recently cuz my neighbor's house was broken into and she was beaten, stabbed and rapped a few weeks ago. She's 78 years old 8-( This was only 4 houses away from where I live and I live alone now, so I'm terrified.

Turns out that the guy who did it (yes, the caught him) was living across the street from me in a renter flop-house. I would go over there all the time and complain to them about their loud music and trash in the yard. I also called their landlord (did no good cuz he was their cousin), the county sheriff and the county sanitation dept. Those people couldn't stand me cuz I was the only one on their ass all the time. My other neighbors are mostly elderly and were scared of em cuz they thought they were MS-13 and would get retaliated against. Well, call me crazy, but I don't let no-body push my little azz around. So anyways, at least they all moved out this year.

I've gone from anger, to sadness, to guilt (I thought that he meant to attack me, but went to the wrong house cuz her's looks just like mine) and have been totally traumatized. And on top of that, there have been two other shootings, a stabbing, multiple prowler incidents and an attempted rape all within the past two months. Most of this has been gang related (MS-13 vs 18th St).

Oh, and before you ask, yes, I did get handgun training and have shot 150 rounds with my new pistol. I now qualify for a concealed weapons permit, which I will be applying for soon. It's too sad for words what is happening all around me 8-( Maybe I need a MOFRO show or two now more than ever...

Good God, Mo, where do you live? But I understand if you don't want to say. Sorry to hear about all that. It sounds terrifying.

Edit: I see you are in the DC area. I lived in DC for 4 years and never felt quite that unsafe. I did get followed down a dark street one night by some guy who jumped out of the bushes and kept grabbing my ass as I fumbled for, and never found, my pepper spray in my purse. Luckily he ran off when I got to the doorstep of my apt. Not that I was glad he now knew where I lived!

Hey antsyashley! I'm out in NOVA. Here's the News 7 report:

http://www.wjla.com/news/stories/0908/553539_video.html?ref=newsstory

I'm from here, born in PG, raised up in Fairfax and I have NEVER been this frightened. But my fam here gave me a new nickname - 40 Cal Mo. If I was a rapper I would SO go by that name 8-)

Thanks for your concern sista! Us women have GOT to stick together.

Peace and Luv,

clay,

sorry for the delayed post about city limits. don't get on here as much as i'd like to. i have been to city limits since it was moved from the original spot, it is a place in the works (i.e., poor sound, high booze prices etc) although it was nice inside. seeing as though the Bamboo Room typically sold out, i would probally get ticket earlier.. i plan on being there and hitting the sarasota blues fest as well!

Pleasantly surprised this morning when I checked mofro.net, to find a solo gig for JJ the afternoon of the Boston show. So I have that sandwiched between NYC and Boston full shows.

Seeing the boys tomorrow night at the French Quarter.
Hoo-Ah! Driving down from the northside of Atl, then driving back up to see them again at the Variety. Can't wait! Will be the first time seeing Anthony with the band as well the first time since the new album came out. Thanks for posting the lyrics. I'll be the one singing my ass off out-of-tune and all.

Clay, I have never seen Galactic before -- but guess what? The Halloween Widespread Panic shows in New Orleans are followed by midnight/1 am shows of Galactic at Tipitina's Uptown. I get to catch those fellas,too. Halloween, followed by Day of the Dead in NOLA. Am totally excited! This is quite the year, this 2008. Expect lots of interesting photos!

Tonight I got to see some good music at Enoch's -- a local bar with live music every night. Then I saw the LA Funk Brass Band at the Blue Monkey. They were so cool. Two sax players, two trumpeteers, and some raging guitar, bass, and drums! Jammin to the funk. Life is alllll right....

thanks clay,
It actually was the best birthday in my 35 years of existence,because I think I'm finally getting where I want to be and belong.I got hired as festival staff but it meant I had to work lots os hours.it was alright ,the job came with an all access pass , i still got to see lots of music and by sunday afternoon I was dancing backstage. hey somebody handed me a big cup of moonshine,I respectfully drank half of it and shared the rest.but GODAMN, what is that stuff? how come I've been in this country for 13 years abd nobody told me about this? it comes in a mason jar, I'll tel ya ,the best shit is unlabeled,non-government controlled and NOT available at your local walmart.

so life is good,

I'm getting ready to drive to raleigh, somebody better have some moonshine there

So, after work yesterday I am sitting downtown at our favorite local bar and we are talking about how we haven't anybody REALLY good come to our local band joint, The Handlebar in a while. Pull up the calendar on my phone and what do I see newly added but:

" JJ Grey and Mofro November 19th "

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So the calls to all the fans around here started and the excitement begins. I saw them first here back in 2006 without knowing who they were at all and I haven't stopped listening ever since. I'm still going to the Oct 30 show in Charlotte but it's just a little cooler when they are coming to your back yard.

Thanks for making this guys afternoon JJ and Company
