For those wondering why musicians are pissed - via @thetrichordist
The Wild is asking season-ticket holders if they want to stick /"Crowd Chant" or switch to "Let's Go Crazy!" as goal song. An easy choice.

We won't see another one like him. #thanksGk @markusrill @DanWilsonMusic I suppose the main rule is that there are no rules! I'm slow to come to most music so that might be a factor.@abywolf's track-by-track breakdown of her new, nature-summoning EP
Retweeted by John Munson @DanWilsonMusic @markusrill I think it's true! It can't be easily swallowed. Has to hurt a little.Still some balcony tickets available for @newstandards with @mn_orchestra Saturday night. Get em!!

@KerriMPR and stuff..... @KerriMPR firecrackers!Listening west of Sioux Falls! @KerriMPRFeeing after sleeping in Rodeway Inn: I will never be clean again. @ChuckTomlinson good times in Mitchell, SD, home of the Corn Palace.Hoping that the car is still out front. Because we need to get away from here.And also trying for hours to determine what the horrid smell was. Lime aftershave mixed with sock and a hint of singe.I spent much of the night wondering if the club footed man dancing above our room would come through the decaying ceiling.The Rodeway Inn in Mitchell,SD has lowered the bar significantly in terms of how horrible a place I can sleep my family. Truly awful.
@Nikuradse @johnmoe actually we used all sorts of covers. If it was between stuff and in broadcast it was almost exclusively instrumental. @PPoyner A symptom of the seventies. Not serious.On of those days where Carry On My Wayward Son just comes roaring through my addled synapses and will not be stopped. #Kansas
James Dobson decrees Trump "a baby Christian." You cannot make this shit up.
Rest in peace Bill Cunningham. You gave us such joy!
Retweeted by John Munson @DearDara it's not like I ever went there much, but it was important to know that I could... And now I can
Worried that @Kate_Casanova is going to try and turn @newstandards into a mushroom growing project at this years #wambash #wearenotafungus
@haleybonar were you maybe moving there forever? Not to get personal. @dessadarling @newstandards @mn_orchestra thank god we don't have to worry about that. #bigboyproblemsThe thing about the rickety houseboat you never would have suspected: interior dreams. and Dave demonstrate the Mississippi Twist #howtocavort #RockTheGarden
