I hate typos- I left out the word "be" in my second sentence above. Sorry.

The Maxwell's show was a nice preview of what's to come at CB's next week. Jeff told me they will playing twice as many songs at that show. Hereing "Alive Again" live is a very pleasant surprise.
That song is simply Jeff's best composition. The new material is as strong as ever, possessing a delicate intensity that lingers.
It was great to see John in the mix, although I do miss Dan Seta.
O.k., folks, I'll see you all on the 27th!

Here here that man. Had the same experience at Sparklehorse in London recently. Why pay 12.50 for a ticket and then talk through the show?? Do these guys just want trendy background music?? This gig sold out in half a day so real fans are being ousted for these idiots.
Looking forward to Jeff and the boys visiting these shores; it's been a long time. Anyone know the UK dates???

Sorry this has nothing to do with Maxwell's. It is just that I also can't fucking stand when people talk (loudly) through a show.

I must say I was very impressed with the Maxwells show yesterday. To be honest, I didn't really know what to expect after reading that Idaho was performing as a 3 piece.
I was pleasantly surprised to find a decent amount of people came out to see Idaho especially on a Wednesday night. Jeff and Co. looked like they were enjoying themselves as we were listening to them. The bar crowd seemed to be a little too loud during Idaho's quieter moments which reminded me of a SparkLehorse show @ Maxwells a few weeks earlier where the bouncers had to physically remove a few boisterous drunk yuppies but I digress...Idaho's performance was very impassioned and intense eventhough Doug's drumming seemed a little off at times (Maybe I notice it more since I'm a drummer.) Anyway, it was a great show. Thanks - Jeff - keep making the music that you do.

Andy.

PS. Hopefully you will play some tunes off Alas @ CB's Gallery next week.

Same sentiments here, Chris.

I was working on a review which I will post here when I have it done. I was a little annoyed at the yahoos in the back of the hall who were talking very LOUDLY when Idaho was playing, but thankfully they left or quieted down after a couple songs. Excellent set of music!

Dale, Jeff-- huge pleasure meeting you both. Sorry I missed meeting the rest of the gang. Dale, I hope you enjoy that Weird NJ magazine. I think it'll help shorten the hours traveling in the van. (It's everything you'd want to know about NJ. Haha...)

We're going to try to be at CBGB's on the 27th, too. Can't wait.

William

I just wanted to thank Jeff and John (and Dale) for being as wonderful as usual. One new thing this time out is the visual projection..an intereting montage of very Idaho-esque images which add to the experience. Particular favorites were the incredible new take on "Stare at the Sky" (Jeff's incredible voice at it's most powerful), "Levitate", "For Granted", "Hearts of Palm" and of course, "Bass Crawl". It was great to see John as well-IDAHO circa 1993...I swear you keep getting better and better. Denise and I will be at CB's on the 27th....see you then...Chris
