    I'll be at Headliners, have my tickets already. We need to meet up for sure. If Jim is going he can point you in my direction, if not I'll PM you a little later in the week.

    Didn't make it out of the office until 11, unfortunately. Nothing like a nice 14-hour day, but it was necessary to get to the store early enough. Gonna head over to CD Central in Lex.

    How was the show?

    Ear-X-Tacy was crazy packed. I left and came back 30 an hour later. I probably missed the chance at some things but oh well. Lines and I do not mix well.

    Dang, wish you could've made it. The show was great with both Hayes and Isbell putting on good performances.

    What was the crowd like at CD Central?

    Shake It said they had their best sales day ever - DOUBLING the amount of their previous best sales day. I picked up all seven of the records I went for. I also got to witness a guy start crying when they told him they were sold out of the Frightened Rabbit/Twilight Sad cassette split. He was one sad hipster. (By the way, why anyone would ever want to re-invest in cassette recordings is absolutely beyond me.)

    It was pretty solid. My first time seeing Hayes, and he certainly didn't disappoint. It was the first decent opening act that I've seen in recent memory too. I think they were called Shovels & Ropes. It was a solid Isbell performance for sure too. It's the earliest I've seen him on a tour so they were definitely more energetic than I've seen them in the past, but on the flip side, there weren't any of the noticeable "we've all been driving around in a van together for 10 months and I know these guys so well that can tell you the last thing every one of them ate" idiosyncrasies that you get from a band that has been out on tour for a long time. Great show though.

    Thank goodness I had cash so I didn't have to wait in the long line. Checked out in less than 2 minutes. The other line probably had 30 people in it.

    I agree with you assessment of Shovels & Rope. They have a free Daytrotter Session available to download if anyone wants to check them out.

    While I'm on the topic of that concert and Daytrotter. Hayes Carll did a Daytrotter Session last week.

    Thing is, several short-term auctions are paying in the $165-200 range. Lots of bids.

    I think the info is incorrect -- the website said there was only 1,000 of them made.

    I believe it. I guess the more ridiculous part is people scalping the RSD deals.
