We came for Thao but wow can you play. Thao is the heart and soul but man you are the master time keeper. I'm an old guy. I've heard a lot of music and have been disappointed at times with live shows but man that was good. I saw Tim Buckley with his band in a roller rink in Tucson towards the end of his last tour in 1975. They were so on the money and didn't show if they cared they were playing a roller rink. The rink wasn't closed and there were still kids rolling around. I thought that was an odd venue but watching you and yours playing in an empty cement garden pond in the middle of June Bug June. It was a very enjoyable night for us and thank you for your sweet (sweat) music.
I've only been listening to TN & TGDST for about a year and i would hear this revolutionary war drumming thing at times. I just read Thao and you met at a reenactment. I'm guessing a colonial era type reenactment. Am I imagining things when I say I hear that coming through at times in your music?
I know what you all do is a lot of work but it appears to me you have tons of fun as well. Have a great tour.

From the looks of it, he saw me on Thao's tour this summer with Mirah and the Most of All, and probably at a venue in Houston called the Orange Show. Beautiful place that is a single man's monument to his love of the citrus power of oranges.
