That's cool - wish I could get along with all the Repugnicans I have encountered here in Laguna Hiils California....
Yeah, Wes Malvini informed me of that after the story ran. Sorry about that.--Ben Schultz
For the Record, Grandmas House was a long established and influential house venue ran by Kim B. and Tyler Scott long before Wes Malvini ever arrived in Boise or put his foot on the front porch. Check your facts Weekly!
Did you notice the guy in the cowboy hat is flippin' the bird? Ha!

I knew Sammy Johns the old days, I just found out he died in January, because I was looking for a recording of Rag Doll. I wrote with Sammy for a while and then one day he asked me to leave because one of our buddies who was bumming money from him told him I was a witch.I really got a laugh out of that, but sadly Sammy believed him and I never saw him again. That same buddy stole 5 of my songs on "Rollin on Down the Road" a year or so later. I just looked Sammy up and found out about his demise, and was shocked sad. He was a good bird hunting while I knew him in North Georgia. I took him to all my favorite hunts. He sure must of been afraid of witches, I always thought that it was real Mark Twainy of him. He was in fact a real good person- at least what I knew of him. One day he sang rag doll for me while we were writing and talking bull - i suppose and it was the best song he ever sang; he did it perfect. Great song man I wish I could meet you some day. If you ever come to NC, drop by the Greystone Inn, I am there as scheduled. until Thanksgiving. Your Friend at heart,
Drinking whiskey in a bathroom stall, that's my girl!
Totally see SBS "going the distance"!!
TMP's participation in this show will include the TMP dancers reuniting with Preservation Hall Jazz Band for an onstage improvisation in the spirit of New Orleans and the jazz legacy that PHJB is known for, (the two ballets will not be a part of the show).
Trey McIntyre Project is supporting the film project with a kickstarter project that ends this Friday. Take a look and become a part of the project: www.treymcintyre.com/kickstarter
I am adding Crazy Horse entries to my music history blog, a history of my time playing music in Boise and Seattle from 1983 to 2003 so I found this article doing research. As you can see from some of these comments, The Crazy Horse was around much earlier than 1991, in the early '80s, and in fact I cut my teeth playing live music there in a punk band called State Of Confusion which morphed into the band Treepeople, who also played many shows there - both of these bands played a lot with Primordial Soup (hello P-Souper!). I am collecting any memories, photos, anything from The Horse (as we lovingly called it) from the '80s. See the blog here: www.amusichistory.blogspot.com
Thank you Ben, again, for a wonderful article about the journey this band is taking. We appreciate your time and candor as a writer.
I really want to start an all ages music venue in Charleston, WV and I'm wondering what you would tell me. I would really like a chance to talk. Is that possible?
No mention of Danny Barnes and his "Barnyard Electronics" work? Guess not everybody is "in the loop".
A small correction: Wes Malvini is no longer the booker for the Red Room. He left in July.--Ben Schultz
oops, guess you forgot to check out Go Listen Boise's local openers at AA5...although Lisa drives a mini-van so I guess Finn Riggins could still fit that crowd?
Maybe alcohol should be prohibited, sorta like smoking? I know thats gonna be considered a really stupid remark by most readers here but by far the worst part of an outdoor concert experience at a place like Outlaw Field is having to tolerate the drunks that the so-called security guards allow to crowd into whatever few inches of space they can force themselves into at the front of the stage so they can attempt to make themselves stars of the show. They annoy the hell out of people who are trying to enjoy the real show that they paid to see. I go to most concerts at Outlaw Field and it never fails. Eventually some drunk girl is gonna come stumbling from the sidelines toward center stage, anxious for the chance to show her T & A to all who can't avoid seeing her. She will soon be joined by a small army of drunken girls and boys, seemingly competing to see who can show the most skin, "dance" the wildest without falling down. I've seen 'em fall into the space behind the black curtain that hangs from the front of the stage. Security guards sit idly by while these drunks annoy the crowd. I've seen a lady get up and slap hell out of a drunk exhibitionist, which resulted in both women being ejected. Why it was allowed to get to that point, I'll never understand. Bottom line is it makes the whole "concert" experience a bad one and thats a shame. There was some mention in the article of a dance floor being designated, to save the grass. I'd suggest it could also greatly enhance the overall experience, provided its not put directly in front of the stage so one does not get to see the performers they paid to see, but instead gets to see a show similar to what they would see if they were sitting ringside at The Torch. (I've heard). :)
I think the move is a great idea and its gonna open alot of doors here in Caldwell!!! I'm so excited I've been researching this for the last couple days (as soon as I heard about it)... People are always going to nay say and complain about the drive.... I used to live in Ontario but if my fav band came in town it didnt matter how far, I've even had to drive to salt lake cause well the band doesn't want to stop in Boise... They all might complain now but Caldwell is alot closer than Portland and Salt Lake City... And I hate the knitting factory but that's another story... It's like you said they might yelp negativity but still come back for more (so it doesn't matter what kind of business you use for an analogy pizza or dentist)... It doesn't matter if everyone might not like it cause whether they like it or not this is Idaho and our options are limited... Don't give up and please hire me hahaha I'm a great worker and would love to work for you :)
