    Glad to see they are hitting the west coast again. Wish they would do a NOLA stop sometimes.

    • This article from The Maine Edge includes a great conversation with Terry that articulates the NRBQ ethic and interviews with newer members Scott and Casey. Touring again in June so check nrbq.com:

      • Saw them last night. They are absolutely unstoppable-- Played 2 1/2 hours at City Winery on a weeknight, which just isn't done. Many songs I hadn't heard in forever-- "Girl Scout Cookies," "When Things Was Cheap," "Boozoo, That's Who" and more. This lineup can and will play any song from any era of the Q, and play it great.

          Tell it, Brett! Those of you out there who have never seen a live NRBQ show are missing a significant American musical event. And Brett is right about the "new Q" who not only know the considerable original back catalog but the hundreds of possible covers they could pull out and are also writing their own additions and adding to the magic of a unique band who don't know their set list until the show is over. They're busy boys this summer so there are plenty of chances to see them. I'm catching them on the two Virginia dates. Can't wait! Here's the rest of the tour dates which includes west coast shows:

          Friday 10 The Chocolate Church Arts Center Bath, ME
          June Saturday 11 Ocean Mist South Kingstown, RI
          June Sunday 12 Infinity Music Hall Norfolk, CT
          June Wednesday 15 Debonair Music Hall Teaneck, NJ
          June Thursday 16 City Winery Philadelphia, PA
          June Friday 17 The Birchmere Alexandria, VA
          June Saturday 18 Bright Box Theater Winchester, VA
          July Wednesday 27 Pappy & Harriet's Pioneertown Palace Pioneertown, CA
          July Thursday 28 Zebulon Los Angeles, CA
          July Friday 29 The Alibi Palm Springs, CA
          July Saturday 30 The Chapel San Francisco, CA
          July Sunday 31 Moe's Alley Santa Cruz, CA

            • They played a snippet of Howard Johnson Got His Hojo Working on CBS Sunday Morning with Jane Pauley because the last restaurant closed

                Probably just enough not to have to pay them.

                • Birchmere in Alexandria tonight and Bright Box Theater in Winchester, VA tomorrow night. Any Threadheads going to any of these shows?

                  • A reminder for you lucky West Coasters that the boys are coming your way. You could go to all of these shows for less than the price of one Springsteen ticket and, unlike the Boss Hog, all the shows will be different!

                      We’ll be at Harlow’s (Minus Five opening!). Did a sloppy version of Ain’t No Free last night to ramp up the excitement.

                        Blaze Foley used to play a fun "Girl Scout Cookies". Not sure I believe he wrote it when he was 9, though. Sure wish NRBQ would come down this way (south) more often.
