So Spafford dropped the latest single off of For Amusement Only today-- Ain't That Wrong. It's linked up through an article on Relix. It's so difficult, and perhaps meaningless, to pick a favorite Spafford tune but gun to head (as @603Brett likes to say) ATW is my boo. So needless to say my expectations were high for this studio treatment. And needless to say I'm a Spafford LIVE fan first, Spafford RECORD fan second. But, wow, they really really really did a nice job with this one. The sax section fits perfectly...

Setlist, Recordings, and Attendance for: 2018-04-21 - Variety Playhouse - Atlanta, GA

When Terminal West sold out in under two minutes it was obvious this show would be special. Then Variety Playhouse sold out in under a minute. I got lucky and got my ticket the first go ‘round and was stoked for a solo trip down from Massachusetts, just for this show.

I ended up expanding the trip a little with a three-day 420 wristband. Caught their day set and the full day Saturday. I have never been to the Playhouse and time spent in Atlanta has been minimal to this point. I h...

Nerds! In celebration of the anniversary of the launch of spaffnerds.com we are giving away a pair of 1 year nugs subscriptions! Next Friday 4/20 marks the 1 year anniversary of the day I took a deep breath and hit "go" on this amazing experience.

Story Time
I built the initial site in about 3 months time. It was barely more than a database with a web UI on top of it. There was no forum, there was no show tracking, let alone stats. There was, however, a solid collection of shows from the Archive and YouTube, and a community that I knew would want what I had to offer. In the year since, thanks to your input, we've added some cool features and developed what I think is a pretty solid offering...

If you don't know Wes Williams, you should. He's an old friend of the band and has a bunch of history entwined with the boys. If Spafford and Wes are in the same town it's not unreasonable to find a sit in. Brian joined them in NOLA a few months back and it looks like Red popped in last night in Phoenix.
