From This Might Be A Wiki

My 2 cents - Rosefox's main issues with the show was the venue - if you only like seeing the band at venues where you can see the color of Dan's shoelaces, don't go see shows at 2800 seat theaters and complain. I'm an old fart who's been seeing the band since the late 80s, I'm happy to sit.

On the merit of the music, I thought the band sounded great. They were clearly psyched to have sold out the Beacon and be playing in front of a "home town" audience. I was very happy they bypassed an opening act and did two nice fat sets, the second featuring some horns and lesser played songs. There did seem to be a little confusion onstage for set two - band members seemed to be looking around slightly confused from time to time, and JF might have had some guitar trouble (he tuned up alot).

I agree "Withered Hope" was a highlight, as was "Purple Toupee". I'm a big big fan of the new album, I think it's their best since "Apollo 18", so I was very happy to see so much from "The Else". ("The Cap'm" is one of my all-time favs.)

Plus, my daughter was with me (almost 14!) so this made it a very special night for me personally.

Anybody remember what Flansy said during "I'm having a heart attack"? I'm trying to remember, and the only thing I can remember is that he said something about failing the SAT's or something. But I laughed so hard, i wanna know what it was.

I believe the line was "I'm not gonna take the LSAT." He's been doing similar stuff like that every so often lately. Can't remember the rest perfectly well; maybe we'll get a downloadable show soon. :] -CapitalQtalk ♪ 01:44, 4 February 2008 (UTC)
He said something like, "I'm not going to grad school, I'm not gonna take the LSAT, I'm moving into my car and I'm taking the cats." Not an exact quote but I think it's kind of close. And oh yes, PLEASE downloadable show soon! --KathyK 03:37, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Beacon was great[edit]

Sheesh, I can't believe someone wanted to hate on this show...or the venue for that matter. As a longtime TMBG fan and longtime concert goer - I was thrilled to see the band sell out and play such a solid, albeit different, show.

I don't think I've ever seen the band play such a high-ceilinged room, and yes, they needed to "UP" their output to fill it, but I think they did a great job. Song selection was pretty good. The saxophonist that looks like he could have been the inspiration for the saxophone-playing muppet Zoot (but with more hair) was on fire. Excellent to have the horns, and I think necessary. I also am glad that they didn't have an opener for this show.

Having been to at least 25 concerts at the Beacon - (its also one of my favorite indoor venues) this might not have been the best, but as far as TMBG shows, it rocked - in a completely different way. I was just thrilled for them to be playing to a larger audience in a classic venue. Good times. See you at the Town Hall in a few...

Was it recorded?[edit]

Does anyone know if the show was recorded, and if so, how long it typically takes for shows to appear in the list of downloadable shows on ebow 17:26, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

I'm gonna cry if it doesn't show up. I've already cried about not being able to go to this show. JasonDeLima 02:34, 8 March 2008 (UTC)
As of 28 June 2008 there's a message at stating:
Hello All, 
We will not be releaseing the final batch of shows from the TMBG 2007-8 tour. But hey, we got about 100 other ones sitting up here. Check them out and find the one closest to your town.
So I guess that means no Beacon goodness for us. :^( I wonder which of the available shows is the most similar. ebow 18:33, 28 June 2008 (UTC)
