We may try to do one or both of these shows. Regardless, I'll check to see if there's a deal on rooms that can be sniffed out. Thanks River Rat!

Yup sho nuff season and anything on the island (Isle of Palms) is pretty much $200+/nite. Nice resorts and hotels there on or near the beach. (House and cottage rentals have 3 or 7 nite mins during summer.) If you want a nice weekend in a resort then this da place.

For the more budget conscious, Mt. Pleasant is a Charleston suburb that sits between I of P and Charleston. It's about 4 or 5 miles from the Windjammer. There's a dungheap of hotels in that area (just put Mt. Pleasant S.C. into your fave travel site) that are in the $85 to $150 range. It does seem one could get something pretty decent for $100/nite.

If you want to take your chances and go against the traveler reviews, and be like 10 or 12 miles away, there's a couple places in the $50-$65 range. Typical 'right by the Interstate' places.

The other option would be downtown Charleston or the historic district. It's not too far but farther than Mt. Pleasant.

Couldn't get no deals, sorry!

Gigs I'm not sure whether to take you serious or not. So the answer is Charleston SC. Mapquest puts driving at 11 hrs 17 mins, or you could take a train, or you could thumb it.

I had some troubles getting here on time, besides the serious traffic bak-up from an accident and gettin pulled over not once but TWICE by a cop in SC it was the rain. let me tell yo about the rain. it's not your average little shower, it fuckin RAINES down here, like someone turned on a faucet, like it rains soo many raindrops per inch there's no room for air, like the rain is in a serious hurry to get to the ground, like someone should measure the speed of rainfall and give it a speedingticket, like I'm not fuckin kiddin you, like you can't see the person driving in front of you. it slowed us down quite a bit.
so i didn't get until the last couple of songs. but we hang out for awhile.
the greyhounds are doin a gig before their night show tonight and we all gonna go and check it out before heading to windjammers
...of to the beach cause it's the only somewhat cool place ...

Sorry for the delay y'all. 8 hour drive home yesterday, splayed horizontally today. These 2-nite show/3 day turnarounds out of state wreak havoc on my already notoriously bad back. I'll be back tonite with lots more to say and some pics. More pics and vids will come tomorrow.

Real quick...if you ever get a chance to see a show at the Windjammer, do it. Great place, great crowd, great location, great sound. I may have to re-consider my top place to see a show.

Real quicker: if you haven't seen the band for 6 months or longer, you are in for an amazing surprise. The best, without any doubt, has indeed gotten better.

To be continued...

AND it would appear that between FOUR of us we can't seem to recall if they did Ho Cake on Sat night or not. (Think we were having a good time??) So I'm hoping somebody else there will help us out!

Van Battle sat in on trombone for both shows.

The band went on about 10:35 on Friday and played until about 12:30. They went on about the same time on Sat and played until near 1 a.m. JJ came out after the Sat show and hung at the merch table for 20-30 mins.

I gotta check with TW and Firefly to make sure. I think I'm missing a song or 2 somewhere. "That Boy" was on the Friday list but got pulled. I don't remember if anything replaced it. (It also got pulled at Boca and I had it on my 'request' list. Damn!)

How in the hell could I forget Stagger Lee on Friday night? Well, it was a last second replacement for That Boy. So it wasn't on the set list, but believe me I remember it. More on that to come.

Giggles, not cold spag at 4 a.m. Eggs, hash browns, bacon, bacon, and a side order of bacon. With syrup. For future trivia contests: Which Mofro band member puts syrup on EVERYTHING? That would be Mr. Anthony 'A.C.' Cole.

Next time I try to be a responsible adult and forgo a MOFRO show because of finances, please smack some sense into me Clay! Though it sounds like I could've gotten into lots of mischief this trip. But since I didn't have bail money, it's probably a good thing I didn't go!

They were relentless about the syrup I tell ya.

Welcome armymule! Dunno if we met over the weekend or not. Glad to have you here. My trophy wife was near the first fight. I didn't know about the other two!

Yeah, night 2 was a sellout and night one wasn't quite. AND there were those that were on the beach all day Sat and then at the show and I'm guessing that alcohol had been consumed. It was hot, crowded, sweaty, and I saw some seriously shit-faced people there on Sat.

That all said, Charleston has the distinction of having been voted the "most mannerly city in America" 11 years in a row. I found that to be very much true. The crowd was courteous, gave you your space, and had nice southern manners.

THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU HAND YOUR CAMERA TO SOMEONE ELSE. FireFly was a bit more front and center than me and she had forgot her camera in the car. She asked to borrow mine. And there you have the reason why there's a close-up of JJ's ass.

Okay let's go here next. This vid is of "Mississippi" but with a slight lyric change. Not on the vid is at the beginning JJ said this song was for South Carolina residents cause of all the crap in the news round there lately.

This is representative of how both shows, but especially night 2, went. At just past the 3:00 mark JJ throws it to Art and he does a mind-blowing, foot stomping, body shaking sax solo that goes for over 2 minutes. His whole body was being poured into that saxophone. Every one of the guys were in the zone like that and played like it was their last show. Infuckingcredible.
