He was always extremely friendly to my wife, and always honored her song requests; I believe he had a bit of a “mom crush” on her, can’t say as I blame him. she was a very special lady and i miss her dearly. Cancer sucks, kids.

Crazy how so many of these just do not feel like they were this far in the past. 19 years… :thinking:

15 years since their first Delaware show. Not a bad one for Mantis ter. OB had an interesting little jam built around a spooky BB riff, LMS is likely on the best versions list, Pig had a little jam that was sort of atypical. I don’t mind getting standardtown songs if they are WMM, Morning Song, Words, EOTR, and Thin Air, though I recall being sort of sick of Words at the time. Pretty sure this is the only time I’ve seen them play the Spires coda, too. All in all a solid 6.5/10, TMSNEI well-played but not outstanding 2009 show.

I was at that show…just realized that I’ve seen all three times they’ve played Crazy Fingers too. Crazy!

That’s such a bizarre looking 2nd set in the best way possible. Really the whole show has great song selection for my tastes, I’ll need to spin this one.

Thanks for the reminder. Such fond memories… This was the second of two consecutive birthday shows for me at the Pageant. I’d seen Joel in front of the venue earlier in the day and requested a Senor Mouse for my birthday, but was denied. Since it was also Kris’ birthday, my request took a back seat to Black Hole sun, which was ok by me. I did get a friendly shout-out, however, just prior to the encore, which was tracked out for posterity by St. Louis taper Manley Feinberg: Happy Birthday to Josh | 2008-04-05 | Umphrey's McGee | Relisten
