Nerds! I just wanted to take a minute and remind us all to breathe. Seems ironic in the face of a respiratory illness, but it's probably good advice.

I had the chance to chat with the band today to help brainstorm around the current situation. I learned two things that I want to share with you all:

  1. There is music coming.
  2. The band has taken a financial hit and needs our help.

So sit tight, grab your TP, and wipe away the tears. There's music coming to you for your amusement only.

There is Music Coming
The band is working to get out some special releases from the end of Winter Tour. It goes without saying that they want to share and push this as much as possible on ...

Setlist, Attendance, and Recordings for: 2020-01-30 - Bijou Theatre - Knoxville, TN

Historic space, Squishy bass!!!

Exactly 1 year and 3 days after their first performance at the historic Bijou Theatre, Spafford returns to Knoxville, Tn. Even though there is a slightly bigger theatre not far away, the Bijou is a beautiful space original opened in 1870 as a hotel and is believed to be the oldest commercial property in Knoxville. It was converted into a Vaudeville Theatre in 1909, and then again to a second-run movie house in 1935 by Paramount Pictures. It’s a beautifully ornate ...

Setlist, Attendance, and Recordings for: 2020-01-24 - The Culture Room - Fort Lauderdale, FL

In no rush to get to tonight’s venue, I savor the last morsels of my delicious dinner at a nearby seafood spot, Even Keel. Stick Figure playlist at the bar, lovely vibes to kick this night off. After the previous evening’s late start time, I feel no need to get to the venue anytime before 9pm for this one. And a special one it is for me: number 10 since discovering this too-good-to-be-true band on July 5th. Time for one more cocktail… and time to read a review or two of tonight’s venue. Never been to the Culture Room. This review stands out: “Keep expectations low a...

New Years Eve, 12/31/2019, the end of a decade and Spafford’s 10th anniversary show. This year’s four-night New Year’s run began in LA at The Roxy and culminated in San Francisco at The Great American Music Hall (GAMH). The 12/30 show was a burner, as reported by @mccuem’s review and evidenced by a crisp Nugs recording. 12/31/19 would be @mccuem and I’s 10th show together in 2019 and our first anniversary since meeting 12/31/2018 at The Van Buren.

I stayed at the Nob Hill Hotel, it was a perfe...

Setlist, Attendance, and Recordings for 2019-12-28 - The Roxy - Los Angeles, CA

Los Angeles Night Two! So excited to see this show tonight. But with a rare afternoon to spend exploring the sites I was pumped to check things out. I had gotten a swift jog in post-show last night, don’t ask, I couldn’t sleep, I was ready to hit the town. So turns out we had a bunch of out of town nerds here for the shows and we had LA resident @mdjabber to show us the sights. Met up with @fl-af...
