    Excellent summation, which explains why I much prefer Billy. Greensky is excellent at what they do, the best in the business, but I listen to grass for the playing and the jams, kind of like jazz.

    Don't get me wrong, Greensky can get plenty weird and Anders might be one of the best musicians working today. It's very far from sit down NPRgrass but they have a much larger book of songs and not as many of them go on for 20 minutes. I think Greensky has been recording original material since 2002, they just have a deeper well to pull from and are more likely to play them they way there were written. Seeing those guys play together really is the best situation. Billy may be getting too expensive to be anyone's opening act much longer.

    Well put. I like Greensky but I like Billy more. For the reasons you pointed out.

    I like Greensky a bit more, but as you point out, Billy oeuvre isn't as extensive. I saw Billy last year and got a bit bored during a few of his big jams. They just didn't seem to really have a destination in mind. I still enjoyed the show (and I'm kicking myself for dragging my feet on the Carrboro shows next month. That's one of my favorite venues.)

    Knew it. Flight back home from Vegas is delayed. Risking missing some (or worse, more than some) of tonight's Billfest.

    Best of luck, I listened to Dallas this morning. Good time to be going to a show.

    This gets better and better every time I hear it. Kills me that I dragged my feet on the vinyl, which is now unobtanium.

    Try his website. My local had one with a dinged corner last week I can help you out with if it’s still there. I don’t know why Rounder can’t get it together to press more LP’s. Amazon is saying mid December until it ships.

    I'd take the dinged corner in a heartbeat - thanks so much!

    Once Amazon goes to the "1-2 months" deal, it's over. At least that's been my experience.

    You’re in, @sami is out. I’ll just tell him it was gone when I got there.
