Total upgrade imho. Lotus should maybe dip a tad into the Talking Heads material they learned for that Connecticut festival thing’y.

I agree. No problem. Thx for not trying. Saw him recently and it was awful. No connection to the audience at all. Like he didn’t even wanna be on stage. Like somebody made him do it. Even more depressing than Isbell n the super drunk years.
Real shame. Was really looking forward to it.

I saw him in Denver and it was a decent show. This is a bummer because that means no Neal Casal to sit in with moe

Rich Robinson obviously figured out how much Moedown sucks.

I saw him in the parking lot at the PourHouse in Charleston chain smoking cigarettes for what appeared to be an hour. He walked by me and I said howdy to him and he avoided eye contact, didn’t say a word, and walked right past me. #startrip

I enjoyed his show at the Pourhouse in Charleston. His keyboard player was quite good.

Moe.down doesn’t suck. In fact, it’s a great festival. This year will be better than most, and if you don’t know, now you know captain obvious…....

I opened for Rich a few years back. We weren’t allowed to bring electric guitars, as his manager told us,“Rich doesn’t want the opener to rock harder than he does.”
