Here I am in winter time Australia wearing my We Have No Idea T shirt ( 💕💕💕Spinal Tap) and streaming KOTO. At 4am I got to hear The Cleverleys and at 5.30am it was Lindsay Lou and this afternoon we RAGED and danced to Greensky. What a set!

Missing everyone but how amazing we can share this across the world.

It is ALMOST as good as being there. ( A bald faced lie but, you know....)

Cleverlys were great as were the East Pointers ... my two favorites amoung others to the main stage! GsBG main stage was awesome, but the nightgrass sets didn't do it for me. In fact several people you know left before the end. Skubes, Nick and I stayed to the end. Others in our camp thought it was good, but Skubes puts that show at the bottom of her show list. However I missed the impromptu down at telluride brewery on Sunday that I heard was amazing!

Next year!

I can't say the NG show at the Palm was the best I've seen, but it did have it's moments.  Never built any momentum, and the set selection felt choppy.  That said, I am beyond spoiled that I can make these comments.  When you get to see your favorite band multiple times a year, every year, life's pretty good.

The Phoff/Bruzza (with Steve from Trout Steak) set at Telluride Brewing Company was amazing.  Nick and I were front row with friends.  One of the many highlight's from the trip.  PP is right - the mainstage set was magical.

Missed you, AF, but looking forward to next year!

Skubes it was nice to put a face with the name.  This is Mississippi Matt that you met on the gondola.

Skubes, I looked at set list from Palm and I had a feeling. The Brewing Co gig looked FUN, you lucky things. Next year for sure! That is a 100% guarantee, I have already booked our lodgings xx
