Other things I liked about Hardly Strictly Bluegrass

  • The crowd reaction when Todd Snider made his Camp David reference in "You Got Away with It"!
  • Guy Clark asking Steve Earle if Earle was getting testy in his old age, after Earle performed an acoustic version of "Fuck the FCC"!
  • Billy Bragg's out-of-Iraq song, "Sing Their Souls Back Home", his most moving non-Woody work in xteen years!
  • Sally Timms getting distracted by a shirtless jogger!
  • The Drive-By Truckers, now officially America's best live band, sharing smokes on stage!
  • Richard Thompson simulcasting "1952 Vincent Black Lightning" with Del McCoury! (Bet Del sang it better though.)
And one thing I didn't like:
  • The Air Force manoeuvres overhead drowning out the performers. Rico wanted us to give them the finger, but as Jon said, they're just doing their job.
