Title: OBH4!
Post by: millerjustin on Jul 18, 2017, 01:50 PM
let's discuss here and share what we learn prior to sale

First, I understand that stage location is not confirmed yet - most likely beach, but not sure where yet.  From what I understand from prior WSP attendees, it was closer to Bldg 2, but they may shift central?

Late night stuff typically indoors in Boulevard area

Looks like a long list of artists. Schedule should be interesting. PtM heading the other night?

Also looks like they have moved from Justin Helton to Reno for artwork. I can get behind that switch up.

Definitely! Nice catch!  Love Justin's work I remember wondering last year how he would be able to keep it fresh for another year. Nice change and love Reno's work as well.

I blew right past the artwork at the top banner, but noticed his little paper boat thing that appears in a lot of his work and the light bulb went off.

i got in line 90 minutes before stuff went on sale.  it would have been an agonizing wait if not for the staff bringing us nonstop food and drink. turned out to be kind of a mini-party. :beer:

Title: Re: OBH4!
Post by: sillyboob on Jul 18, 2017, 04:02 PM
So this should suss out so that there's a sunset show, an opener, a headliner & a late night set every night. Not bad.
Title: Re: OBH4!
Post by: APR on Jul 18, 2017, 04:11 PM
I noticed the great lineup and then the great art work all around the banner.  The resort and rooms look great too.  I'm glad we have a week to plan and strategize because March is not good timing for me.

I would guess Spoon and PTM co-headline MMJ's off night..... maybe PTM goes on last but they'd each get full length sets.
Title: Re: OBH4!

Can someone in the simplest of terms explain the resort credits to me. We tried to rent one of those cabanas over the water last year and they were like yeah you can but you have to buy like a 200 dollar bottle of champagne. Is there a way to just use them without spending extra money?

you can use them for resort amenities that normally cost money above all-inclusive (like massages and premium booze in restaurants).  Only catch is that you pay a 20% charge for credits you use.  So if you use 100 credits, you'll have a $20 charge on your room.

Does anyone know how much larger capacity this venue is from the original HRH? Trying to figure out how quickly this will sell out. This lineup is insane and will draw a lot more people than previous years is what I' thinking.
Title: Re: OBH4!
Post by: sillyboob on Jul 19, 2017, 06:53 PM
From what I've read, OBH 1 & 2 were 2500 people maximum.  OBH3 was 3000, and I believe OBH4 is set at 3500 maximum.  This is just from what I've read though.  I have no way of corroborating this.

I was there the first year and it was one of the best concerts/music experiences of my life. I took three years off to head on Jam Cruise, but I will more than likely be back with this line up. So excited!

Also, I got my presale code and password today. So they are slowly coming out.

I cannot for the life of me figure out if resort credits can be used to play golf.   one page will give me the impression golf is included, then another makes it seem like you'll have to fork over $200 for a round.

help? anyone? with a course on-site, I'm going to have to play at least one round.
Title: Re: OBH4!
Post by: Bulldog on Jul 20, 2017, 11:04 AM
I gotta believewe will need to pay. I played in Mexico and it was about $200 per round, but with it on site I will do it again this year in a heartbeat....

Thanks for all the reassurance, everyone!

Booked! Now just have to somehow secretly make payments while also paying for the wedding.

Here's a question: Is there any chance of getting a poster? With our work schedules, we just can't get there until the 2nd and I feel like I read about having to queue up super early for merchandise. Will it all be gone already?

We are in the same boat and this is my only concern.  There was along line this past OBH, but not sure when posters ran out.  Maybe we can find poster buddies to pick up an extra one to hold for us until we arrive?
Title: Re: OBH4!
Post by: BWE on Jul 26, 2017, 12:30 PM
Yeah, I'm sure they put a limit on how many items people can buy -- we're newbies, so we don't really have any buddies that I know of to ask, but I'd really really like to get a poster!

So, they do open it up on the first morning? Why don't they just print MORE?  :shocked:

The merch stand will open up at noon on Friday, they won't have anything available prior to for early arrivals. I've never had a problem getting what I wanted, but mostly everything will sell out. OBH1 and OBH2 I arrived by 11:00 am and was maybe 50 or so in line, OBH3 I got there about 10:45 and the line was over 100 deep by that point. We've all gone merch crazy, but I imagine for the larger venue and crowd, they would have a larger poster run. I believe last years run was 850 and didn't sell out the first day. If all else fails, check out the artists website afterwards. I believe this years artist will be http://clintonreno.com/
Title: Re: OBH4!
Post by: jmoney on Jul 26, 2017, 12:50 PM
Every one getting a poster would be wonderful, but I guess they don't want to print thousands of posters.  I think printing enough for one per room would be the way to go. 

They open the march line at 12pm on the first day.  People line up pretty early.  It is much easier of a line to wait in with servers bringing you drinks and food nearby.

I am sure we can find someone to grab a poster if needed.  There are a lot of kind hearted, good people at this event.

Post by: Landathelost on Jul 26, 2017, 02:50 PM

I don't believe so, but I never really pay attention because I bring my own tube. I know one year they had a plastic sleeve they gave you that was like a poster condom. I would advise bringing your own tube. You can carry them on the plane or check them in a large enough suitcase.

They only provided plastic sleeves. Be sure to bring your own.

Fairly certain you could buy a tube at the merch table for maybe 5 dollars. I remember standing in line and thinking that was nice. ( I had brought my own)

We got to the merch stand at maybe 11:30 and the line was HUGE. People serving me drinks in line did nothing to reduce my stress. Everything someone walked away with a poster, I got more worried. I didn't have to be. There were plenty of posters by the time I got to the front.

No idea if they do it again, but last year they had a cash only line which moved much more quickly, so if you have the cash, get in that line.

Looking forward to adding one more poster to the wall, but I'm not sure where I'm going to put it.

I would personally not wait on flights. I'm generally pretty solid with this stuff and the challenge with most flights into PUJ is that they are feeder flights from a small handful of cities (ATL, MIA, FLL, PHL, JFK, ORD), there just isn't anywhere near the supply that an already low cost air destination like CUN had to offer. Not to say that there won't be a deal to be found here and there, but the more seats that are sold, the less inventory there is even when a sale occurs (most sale fares won't apply/be available to book on flights that are selling well).

Also, if you book with Southwest (who has flights from ATL, BWI, and FLL), and the price goes down, they will give you a credit for no additional charge.

Super excited for OBH, much less excited for the travel required to get there.

Post by: slappymoe on Aug 27, 2017, 09:55 AM
been on sale for a month now.  kinda funny thinking back to all the people worried about it selling out immediately and getting left out.  not only are there still rooms left, some room options that were once listed as sold out are on sale again.  if you missed out on the caribbean sand suite first time around, now's your chance to upgrade to a room closer to the beach.

it'll be interesting to see if it eventually does sell out and how long it takes.
Title: Re: OBH4!
Post by: excel on Aug 27, 2017, 03:18 PM
So how much more capacity does this resort have than the Riviera Maya resort? Seems weird that they sold out faster last year when this years lineup is arguably better. At least in my opinion.
Title: Re: OBH4!
Post by: slappymoe on Aug 27, 2017, 03:34 PM
I think there are roughly 500 more rooms in punta cana. Something like 1250 vs 1750.

I'm guessing the extra time and cost of flying to the DR, the fact that they didn't skip a year this time, and NYE have combined to lessen demand. Still, I'll be surprised if it doesn't sell out eventually.

Interesting that you have Toots & The Maytals playing an early afternoon show.  I wonder how the timing of the sets will be spread out, since there are enough acts for an afternoon set, an evening opener, a headliner, and a late night set every night.

Okay - Just nearly had a minor heart attack.  Logged into JetBlue.com and saw that my connecting flight to Punta Cana from Fort Lauderdale was shown as Cancelled.  Turns out there had been a minor time change on the connecting flight, so the 'original' itinerary was cancelled, but the new itinerary was still valid.  So, for anyone connecting to Punta Cana on JetBlue on March 1, flight 173, just know that Cancelled = new flight time.

So, I booked OBH for me and the hubby as a surprise Christmas/wedding gift/honeymoon.

And now, I finally get to spill the beans in less than a month (fingers crossed he can get the couple days off he needs)...any thoughts on a creative/cool way to tell him he finally gets to go?

I was hoping for something small that he could unwrap since just saying, "Hey guess what, I booked OBH" seems a little anti-climactic. Also, I spent oodles, as you all know, so the little reveal can't be too extravagant.

Day 3
Hooray for Riff Raff afternoon on beach. Then Sylvan Esso>PTM on main. Then Moon Taxi on beach stage late night. Britt Daniel DJ set also late night and opposing MT on the eclipse terrace.

Day 4
PHJB on beach in the afternoon. Then Nathaniel Rateliff>MMJ on main stage. J Roddy Walston and the Business closing it down late night on the beach. Made of Oak also opposing latenught on eclipse terrace.

My take. 1st 2 days are perfect. Love that BSS and Spoon are setting up the Jacket and PHJB on the beach will be a swinging comedown. Must pace myself day 1. Toots afternoon set should be sweet. Any Toots recommendations?

Need some help on day 3. Sylvan is a snoozer live (JMHO), not too familiar with Portugal the Man and totally ignorant on Riff Raff.

Love J Roddy but haven't heard any Nathaniel Rateliff.  I also expect a Jim appearance for PHJBs beach set. J Roddy will burn it down to close.

Overall, I'm pumped!!!

Now that the NYE run is over, it is time to focus our attention to the next big thing, only two months to the day, away - ONE BIG HOLIDAY 2018, in a new destination, with a real beachfront (with a stage)!!!

Some interesting reading about the setlists for the NYE run. I'm experiencing those shows today via the internet (and remembering some of the covers from OBH 2017).  The one thing I'm going to say on the subject of cover songs at OBH 2018, I'm hoping that night 4 gets a set heavy with MMJ songs, maybe a cover song or two early in the set.  I'm a huge fan of the covers that MMJ does, but I'd like to see them end OBH 2018 with just a powerhouse set of My Morning Jacket.  It's why we spend thousands of dollars and fly many many miles to see the band.  Bring the songs we love to hear and dance to and sing along with.  The covers are great, but the originals are where our collective hearts are!!!

Pumped for OBH4. Anyone know who controls the Facebook group. Sent request just waiting on an addition. This will be a first OBH for me and my buddy but by no means our first Jacket shows, or festival experience. How would the experience compare to say Bonnaroo or The Hang Out?

Welcome GTG!  I can only compare OBH to a few Coachella trips, but OBH 2 & 3 spoiled me to the point that I don't want to do regular festivals anymore.  I'd much rather do a beautiful tropical destination, a small crowd, many options for food and drink, waiters bringing drinks through the crowd, the ocean by day, music by night, and room service to start it all of the next day.

GTG its ruins you for festivals. 24 Hour room service. Drinks on demand. I woke up around 11 each day grabbed breakfast to a quick nap then headed to the pool or beach. It was paradise during the day. Then I was reminded "oh yeah were seeing MMJ tonight. This line up is incredible. Everyone is super friendly and there to have a good time. So much fun.

There's also a lot to be said about the vibe at OBH, everybody there for the same band. The love for each other is something I've never really experienced elsewhere. It's the best! Only 57 more Days :cheesy:

Great to hear. Have talked about going in years past but never pulled the trigger. Super Stoked to get down there and kick it for a few days. Got an extra days added because after seeing Monday night line up Im not sure I could leave early Tuesday morning. Almost need a day to come down off that line-up. Been a long time Jacket fan so this just makes sense.

I've done the extra day at the end of OBH 2 & 3 and it definitely helps.  But there's a weird vibe being at the resort as everyone leaves.  Seeing how our flight to the west coast gets us in at around 10pm Tuesday night, we already have to take a vacation day on Wednesday just to recover.  We are getting in a day early though this year, and like everyone, we can't wait!!!

Interesting. Good catch. Looked into it a little and it looks like theyíll issue your tourist card at immigrations when you arrive (cash of course). Would love to hear what others have experienced. Looks like there is typically a departure tax ($20) as well, but they mentioned that it is typically included in your airfare. Check your departing flight information.

I'm on the fence about bringing down my Yeti.  Sure, it keeps things cold for hours, but do you want to hold onto it all night long, during the concerts?  Waiters come around through the crowd with trays of drinks, so getting a refreshing beverage is a pretty easy thing to do.  Plus they have like 5 bars set up around the back of the stage area.

As someone already mentioned, the hydro flask is the way to go. Doesn't keep things as cold as long as a yeti, but it has a hook on the handle to hook you finger in when carrying it, it's a screw top so you don't have to worry about spillage, and its easy to grip. Every picture you see of me during the actual shows, I have my arms raised with a hydro in one hand.

Plus, once the bartenders get to know you during the day, they are more than happy to fill up your hydro flask during the day at the pool bars.

Usually middle shelf. But definitely ask, they sometimes have alternatives that aren't conspicuous.

In Cancun, they had some decent rum, but bourbon and vodka selections left a lot to be desired.

I'd imagine the casinos take debit cards but I have no personal experience.

no earplugs!!!! Ryan is the best soundman in the biz, he knows what hes doing. The sound has always been ridiculous at a Jacket show. You could film the whole show on a Sprint phone from 2006 underwater and it would still be a B+ sounding bootleg because of how damn good their FOH is.

yikes! judging from the e-mail we got yesterday, I'd think long and hard about trying to bring any party favors.  talk about scared straight! :shocked:

The Dominican Republic may seem quite lax on many things compared to America, but drugs are certainly not one of them. If you want to avoid spending time in extremely nasty Dominican jails with very little hope for bail, it is strongly advised that you do not bring, buy, sell, or consume illicit drugs in the Dominican Republic. Even small quantities can lead to big trouble. Certain substances may be legal in the state where you live but that does not mean you can travel internationally with them. The Dominican Republic does not recognize your medical card as a valid document.

 The DNCD (Dominican Drug Enforcement Agency) has increased its efforts to clamp down on illegal substances with several recent examples of successful operations. Seizures at ports and airports around the Dominican Republic have increased and included a high number of foreigners, including United States citizens.

I had no intention of trying to bring anything with me to be honest. Ive been to the DR before and off the resorts you could make said purchases but it was umm...reminiscent of mid 90s press.

All so true.  That's crazy that was your first "true" show.  What an experience and strong precedent.  But you never know, MMJ could top it.

Correct....Ride... not Fly.  I always change it to fly and often sing it fly for some reason.  I totally dug that song in the 80s.

we considered it, but it starts so early. that and the extra $50 made it a no-go.  gonna head out on our own one afternoon.

would love to get some reviews of the punta cana airport experience from any early-arrivers today or tomorrow (assuming anyone cares about this message board once they're down there). we'll be cutting it close Friday, hope it doesn't take more than an hour to get out of there and onto the shuttle.

Disclaimer- this is not legal advice, but we got in this afternoon and had I brought anything I didnít want someone to see in personal use quantities, it would not have been difficult at all if some common sense was applied.  Customs was a breeze and people are generally very friendly.  Much less of a cluster than Mexico..

Yeah cause Bruce and the E St.Band broke up after they started doing some albums at the end of the tour in 09!  Oh wait, they still did more album shows on the 2012 tour and a whole double album tour after that?  :shocked:

Shocked I tell ya, I'm shocked they haven't broken up after doing whole album shows.   :rolleyes:

I'm with Count on this and also  think it's more like Jim and the guys remembered how much fun T5 was, and decided to give their fans at OBH a real nice,unexpected treat.

The last few OBHs covers have comprised 1/4 of the total songs played. Why do you think I didn't want to go back? And they pull this shit. I had a feeling they would do this. Wish now I had that feeling when Tix went on sale as opposed to yesterday.

I think they'd have to put EU in night 3. closing with One in the Same wouldnt work great and it gives Jim the off day to rest his voice after some major strain of 5 albums in 2 nights

If this was their farewell itd be too hard to take...not like this...not in such form... you ALWAYS want the people you love to go out on top but on top with MMJ just means so much to offer.

Id say the chances of them breaking up in 2018 are 80/20 in favor of NOT.

They simply love what they do too much
Title: Re: OBH4!
Post by: SplatSplatSplat on Mar 02, 2018, 11:35 PM
I can see them taking a break until next year, which is their 20th anniversary more or less. As much of a live band as they are, I feel like they'd at least announce their last shows.

But maybe not. Life is weird.

If it goes like it seems it will, it will be absolutely amazing to hear every album cut start to finish. The only downside, especially being here to see it in person, would be the lack of spontaneity, which is what makes this band so great. Still, no complaints here and I'll be enjoying the ride
Title: Re: OBH4!
Post by: dookie shoot bandit on Mar 03, 2018, 08:36 AM
My guess is they switch it up now, and play songs from the remaining 5 albums with no repeats in the next 2 nights, without having to try and fit any songs from TTF or AD in there. They might end up playing their whole catalog, but this would help the element of surprise.

this is why theyre mindblowing and may be indeed up there with the best versions of the songs..although i still need to hear T5. thats also how the solos or jams in Denver was too, just a celebration of all eras wrapped into one with note choice, riffs etc.

Think my ears and eyeballs still cannot beli eve what just happened. Guys, MMJ  practiced these songs. They weren't just thrown together. Many jams were interspersed. Strangulation was mind blowing. So so so so so heavy...and yet tender.

this is why theyre mindblowing and may be indeed up there with the best versions of the songs..although i still need to hear T5. thats also how the solos or jams in Denver was too, just a celebration of all eras wrapped into one with note choice, riffs etc.

we need to see what goes down tonight ....ooooo ill be waitin

Here's that T5 Tennessee Fire performance.

oh yeah this one is sick! although its missing some songs sadly. i think i may have heard this a few times but man i much dig this 3/2/2018 Tennessee Fire performance!!

The thing that sticks out in my mind from TTF night at T5 aside from how great the performance was, is it was quiet as hell in there during the songs. Very little if any audience chatter at all.

It was something to this day I always remember and look back fondly on. I know others who were there who feel and say the same thing. Just everyone totally locked in to the band and it was seriously like a Broadway show or Carnegie Hall as far as a quiet, respectful audience during the songs.

I'd be surprised people down there aren't rioting bc they haven't played any covers yet.


Haha, this is funny because it's true.  :grin:


I'm sure there are people down there not happy with the setlist and wondering WTF?   

The last few OBHs covers have comprised 1/4 of the total songs played. Why do you think I didn't want to go back? And they pull this shit. I had a feeling they would do this. Wish now I had that feeling when Tix went on sale as opposed to yesterday.


Just catching up on everything now due to power outages.

Most insane thing. Holy smokes. At least T5 had warning. Soooo jealous and soooo impressed that this band pulled this whole thing off. (Almost) speechless

I am equal parts really happy for those that went, and also horribly frustrated.

I've been to over 40 shows since 2008.  Went to OBH2.  All the red rocks shows.  All of them, and I live in Wisconsin.  I've been absolutely dying to hear some of these songs.  Missing T5 has been probably the biggest regret of my life.  And all the while i've been chugging along down the MMJ trail, i've been crossing my fingers for something like this to happen.  And yes, I've gotten some real deep cuts along the way and overall i'm very grateful for everything i've witnessed.. but this is just..  it's the holy grail for me.  i love the slower sadder less played tunes that we never get to hear.. they are always in the back of my mind at every Jacket show, a twinkle in my eye, just waiting for the If All Else Fails or, jesus christ, Into the Woods, or By My Car...

..and there was absolutely no way to predict this.  I would pay ten thousand dollars to see just the first four albums front to back.  even if i had a million, i doubt i'll ever get the chance. 

im crushed, but also very happy for you guys.

Did Cloud9 definitely say that all three nights will be downloadable like the previous three OBHs?

Just the opposite, there was no mention anywhere of recordings of these shows being made available as far as I know.

So are they fitting 3 albums into a single show Monday?

And certainly the weekend is not ending on Only Memories Remain.

Going backwards with Waterfall > Circuital > Evil Urges would flow much better than going in release order.

So privileged to be witnessing this. The band is on fire and you can tell they spent some time practicing these deep cuts. Night 2 was the best MMJ show ever put on. So many best versions of songs that itís hard to comprehend. One Big Holiday 5th song in, Monster beginning to Run Thru, Rollin Back(what more needs said) Steam Engine, fantastic. Then to Z It Beats for You Tom crushing it, Gideon jammed out Awesome Guitar by Jim, Off The Record, Into The Woods, Lay Low, Dondante just WOW on all these. Then they fire off the sickest Cobra ever done. Still processing these first two nights and probably will be for life, what an honor to be part of this. If these shows are to make Livedownloads buy them as fast as you can you will not be sorry.  :thumbsup:

it would be insane if they didnt release these as an official bootleg or even as a physical release. knowing how the fans are foaming at the mouth for the T5 shows, this could be the perfect solution.

I wonder if they got wind of some of the disappointment floating around after NYE with the covers.  I certainly wasn't disappointed but it was talked about. 

I still can't believe this. 

They can't play all three remaining albums in one night, can they?

Final note.. they have released recordings for every other OBH so far, i'm not sure why this would be any different..

evil urges - 55 min, circuital - 45 min, waterfall - 48 min

i guess it sounds doable? though, remember reading that "remnants" is hard on jim's voice and that is why they don't play it a lot. having to do 2 albums after that song sounds tough!
Title: Re: OBH4!
Post by: dontgetupset on Mar 04, 2018, 01:09 PM
My prediction is that they do all 3 remaining albums tomorrow and then an encore which will include at least one cover.

This is way more than I could have asked for throughout my (legitimate) NYE complaints.

There's definitely a part of me that says "why couldn't we get a taste of this in Broomfield (after night 1) and why does it only go people who spend thousands of $$$?" but I'd rather just be happy and jealous for the people that are there and experiencing this.

WOW

Hey folks!  Just wanted to let all of you playing at home know that I'm a taper and I'm here with my gear.

I had battery issues on Friday night so it's not complete.  Got almost all of TN Fire and some of At Dawn.  Some pretty loud talkers around me too.

Saturday was smooth sailing.  Sounds pretty good out of my laptop speakers.  I can't upload it until I get home and do the conversions, but it was so good, it'll be one of the very first things I do when I get back.

Jim's voice was a bit shaky on a few Z songs I thought, but yes great overall. Believe it or not, I'm actually taking night 1 as my fav of the 2 so far. TTF blew my mind. The turnt up version of the OG lofi demo-ish LP as one body of work gave me a whole new apprection for their debut. I gotta also mention the acoustics here have been off the charts. The wind has picked up today, so we'll see how PtM fares tonight.

God bless the tapers. :beer:

At some point you just gotta be happy youve seen them the amount of times you have.... Nobody could've predicted OBH4 being 3 hours a night. If id known this id have gone to DR rather than Denver. But i loved that run it was barely just under this epicness and thats becuase theyre playing EVERYTHING.  i havent heard anything from Johnny. Troubling. I hope hes ok. I know some of the big Jacket fan royalty got to go onstage like Erica Moore a good online friene dont know her physically and my personal friend Obie Wing. No doubt Johnny got his time at Denver backstage but one can be remiss not thinking he could be on that stage last night as well. And they play the shortest Cobra ever and now the longest hahaha oh well. Denver was fucking insane and so is this....just different reasons. Welll.....im never fucking missing another OBH....

With respect to Denver v OBH. At least Denver didn't go into night 3 all but certain they'd only hear songs from EU, Circuital, and the Waterfall. I mean, woof.

Don't get me wrong, I'd take it. And they are going to rock that shit. But when I go to shows, I typically want to hear as few songs as possible from those last 3 LPs.

I suppose a hard left turn is also possible for night 3. That would be pretty cool. Keep erebody on their toes.

Excellent point. When I complained about 12/31 it was because it was the only one I could go to and I think some may not have fully understood it when they said "don't bash it because Night 1 was great." With this thing every single person hears every single song. Yeah, for me there's nothing too exciting about going through The Waterfall in order but to get back on the plane knowing you heard every (LP) song is super cool.

Went to all Chicago shows, 3 Beacon shows, and many many others waiting for something crazy like this and some (not the ones talking LOUDLY while the deepest cuts were played for the first time in 8 years) of the most dedicated fans were rewarded for their dedication. Bravo!

Set list critiques crack me up. I've been on the plus side and the ordinary side on many occasions.

It's all relative and I'd rather be thankful than regretful based on experiences versus what might have beens.

As sweet as playing their entire discography is (and it is unbelievable, don't ever get me wrong), the ideal sequencing for a 3 night stand would probably be:

Night 1 - Tennessee Fire and At Dawn
Night 2 - work backwards from Waterfall, Circuital and Evil Urges (that way the show ends on Touch Me pt 2)
Night 3 - meet right in the middle at ISM and Z.

I do wonder what the encore holds for us tonight, because there's no way they are ending the getaway with Only Memories Remain. Unless they want to prompt the "OMGzz they are sending a message that only memories will remain of this band because they are breaking up gAAAHH!) folks out there.

Smokin

Evil urges
Victory Dance
Day is Coming
Black Metal
Slow Slow Tune

people may not revere the last 3 albums (well, mostly the last 2 for many people) as much as the first 4 but as gardenparty notes, some real bangers. Add Circuital, Wonderful to that list b/c they are almost certainly getting played, I bet Magic Bullet gets played too. I love the version of First Light they played at last OBH. More rocking.

I wonder if non-MMJ tunes like SOTA or Carried Away get played.

If people have any inclination that there could be a letdown, just know they are going to leave people's jaws on the floor if this is their last show together for at least a yr.

If people have any inclination that there could be a letdown, just know they are going to leave people's jaws on the floor if this is their last show together for at least a yr.
I imagine the encore after whatever happens with the last 3 albums will include the solo stuff like SOTA/New Life/Carried Away, and maybe a cover or 2 before OBH drops again
I'd love to hear them dust off It Makes No Difference

Yes!  thats where looking at a setlist would never tell the tale.  It was the perfect follow up.  Magic Bullet, eh.  Never really cared for it and the live rendition only slightly improved my opinion on it.

Okay, if they go with the final three albums tonight, thats roughly 33 songs right?  For some reason that seems like way to predictable an ending for what was a highly unpredictable idea.  I just dont see it.

I am guessing they conjur up a 23-25 song setlist with a break in the middle of songs from the final three albums, and then finish with a very lengthy encour of b sides and rarities and covers.  Like, i think Come Closer and Oxen are happening tonight.  As well as It Makes No Difference and Tyrone. 35 to 37 total songs and then a giant exhale from the audience as they announce "we arent going anywhere" before leaving the stage.

THE FIRST TIME WAS SO PERFECT AFTER STEAM!!! I knew exactly where Jim was going when he hit that first chord I was like Woah Chels this is the First Time theyre gonna be The First Time, she was like "What?"

I'm with you, never cared too much for Magic Bullet to begin with. And I have wondered about whether or not they'd perform all 3 remaining albums or just like the highlights of each one (leaving out tracks most people don't have hugely strong opinions on, like Two Halves and Big Decisions), and then drop some covers, solo tunes, and maybe a couple more non-album rarities before leaving the stage. I personally have a highly irrational hope that Sweetheart gets played for the first time since its only performance in 2006.

I would assume so-there's no tape evidence to prove all of EU was played, but we know the show started like 45 minutes before the streaming started and the stream kicked in for the very end of Remnants so its pretty safe to assume the rest of EU was played beforehand

Amazing set of shows. I was lucky enough to get a setlist but can't find a way to upload it here. Last night was:
Evil Urges
setbreak
Circuital
Waterfall
encore break
Magic Bullet, One Big Holiday
If my memory is a correct, after OBH they all came together to wave goodbye and Jim thanked everyone and told us to bring this good feeling back into the world and take care of each other. No mention of coming back next year. Amazing experience and after missing NYE in Denver, I am so very grateful that they put this epic run together.

i hear ya man. I feel so lucky to have seen PC, Beacon, RR16 shows but this has to go down as the greatest run they've had when you take into account the venue and all.

I would speculate no OBH in 2019, but after that idk but I don't think for a second this is over. I could see them taking 2 years off.  I hope these shows come out and that this live LP is real thing.
Title: Re: OBH4!
Post by: dexter on Mar 06, 2018, 09:10 AM
not a bad way to spend a long weekend..  now i get why they need that night off instead of doing 3 straight...

few (non musical) observations of my experience the 2 days i was there:
if possible i would never miss this again- not sure how this compares to mexico but thought it was great where it was
weather was great
the water was pretty crazy but not problematic as long as you were careful
the staff at the resort were SUPER friendly
I had pretty much the farthest room to anything, 8-10 minute walk to the main food area, to the pools, beach, etc and i didnt think it was an issue whatsoever.  it didnt feel too big a resort ever.
same for the actual concert venue, it always felt like you had a great spot if you were close or "far".  it felt small and roomy.
the one thing i will say is the farther back you are, the more talkers there were- i like to chat quietly for 20 seconds every few songs about the show as much as the next guy, but im talking nonstop full on conversations.  i guess its the non stop booze helps aid this on.
the in concert servers definitely were working hard, super nice and as was mentioned, maybe around a little too much.  (not like they know when dondante is going nuts, they just want to help those with empty drinks)

thought the crowd was great though.. lots of smiles and positive energy, lots of dancing, very few phones out nonstop. having been to my share of phish festivals, people were definitely partying and im all for that, but this didnt have that "overly druggy veneer" to it if you know what i mean.  just felt "cleaner" from where i was and that felt refreshing, even though people were probably doing a lot of the same things, it jsut didnt feel like the sole purpose for people to travel to a beach.  they were there because they loved mmj and wanted to party and not the other way around.

im blabbing.

ok i thought the food was pretty awful.  i didnt get sick or anything but i barely ate.  nothing was tasty and nothing looked good.  if anyone can tell me where they had even decent food id love to know, because next time (please be a next time) if i go for all 4 days, im going to need to eat at some point.

lastly if anyone ever needs a roomate and member LeviK is looking, i cant say enough good things.  Just a super nice, smart, really into music guy that you cant go wrong with whether going to this concert or anything else.  Very solid guy, thanks again for a great weekend..

What an unreal experience this was, and donít think for a second last nights show was lacking in anything. The boys brought it as usual. I got the honor and privilege to hang out with Tomís mom between the Nathaniel set and MMJ taking the stage. She was as awesome as youíd expect. Easy to see where Tom gets it from. We need a name for these shows as they will go down in infamy like the T5 , PC shows, Beacon Run.

At one point Jim said something along the lines of the end of one thing is the beginning of another. Something like that, but I can't remember the actual phrase. That was the only thing said that may have been a reference the future. It was an amazing night shared with a lot of great people who I'm sure I'll see again down the line.

The only complaint about this trip was the J Roddy late night show. The sound mix was terrible. It couldn't have been the room, because Moon Taxi sounded incredible the night before. I was pretty bummed about that.

Thanks for the reports, and I look forward to reading more of them.  Missing this is a huge regret.  I'm sure the greatness of the shows added to the happy vibe of the whole resort, which could only add to the fun and happiness during the day.  I hope there is a next year and a year after that and after that, etc.

If I have to complaints about last night, and holy shit, this is the first world of first world problems. One, I thought last night was a little rushed. It had to be to get in all the songs, but nothing was really stretched out. Two, the sound at J Roddy wasn't good compared to Moon Taxi the night before. Other than that, what an amazing experience. Of course, I'm now in my hotel room looking for a way home since everything into the east coast is closed because of the storm.

I got to talk to Britt Daniels for a bit after his DJ set. First off, it was an actual DJ set. He was spinning records from his own collection. Busted out the Who, Bob Dylan, white stripes,  Prince and the Beatles.

Anyway, after the show I asked if he had a prior musical relationship with Jim James. He said they had played several music fests together but that he had never had a chance to have an actual conversation with him. Britt  did say that he and Jim had been texting quite a bit this week.

I will echo what others have said...great shows, great vibe, and great people both working at the resort and attending the shows. Agreed that the whole catalog run-thru took away from the spontaneity that makes MMJ great but nobody can legitimately complain about how the shows went - some amazing bustouts, jams, and solid versions of set staples with PHJB horns.

Didnít see any of the MMJ guys (maybe tonight if they are still around), but ran into John and Zach from Portugal. The Man and Trevor from Moon Taxi, all on more than one occasion, and they were all cool enough to stop and talk to a fan for a bit. John didnít know PtM was headlining their night til they got here and Zach showed me the tattoo he got the night their manager told him Feel It Still hit #1 on the pop charts.

Hopefully it is happening again next year as it may have been my first OBH but I donít see myself not going ever again. To the hiatus rumors, even if the band takes a year or two off, I have to believe they will be back eventually to tear shit up some more...

Update. Tomís mom can down to wish us off this morning even though she wasnít leaving (how sweet was that) Got to Punta Cana Airport and who is right behind us at the American Airlines check in, Jim and Bo. We respect their privacy but when they came thru customs they got a load applause. Soon after Tom walks thru toting his carry-on bass guitar  :cool: We decided to fly first class this time as we have 9 hours of flying today back to Seattle. Who shows up on the flight to Miami, Jim and Bo. Itís like being in the presence of a Devine spirit  <3 I only asked Jim how his voice was doing and in a low graveling sounding voice he just said so so. So wanted to ask about next year but didnít feel it appropriate after they just gave everything they could possibly have given.

thought the crowd was great though.. lots of smiles and positive energy, lots of dancing, very few phones out nonstop. having been to my share of phish festivals, people were definitely partying and im all for that, but this didnt have that "overly druggy veneer" to it if you know what i mean.  just felt "cleaner" from where i was and that felt refreshing, even though people were probably doing a lot of the same things, it jsut didnt feel like the sole purpose for people to travel to a beach.  they were there because they loved mmj and wanted to party and not the other way around.

im blabbing.

ok i thought the food was pretty awful.  i didnt get sick or anything but i barely ate.  nothing was tasty and nothing looked good.  if anyone can tell me where they had even decent food id love to know, because next time (please be a next time) if i go for all 4 days, im going to need to eat at some point.

lastly if anyone ever needs a roomate and member LeviK is looking, i cant say enough good things.  Just a super nice, smart, really into music guy that you cant go wrong with whether going to this concert or anything else.  Very solid guy, thanks again for a great weekend..




Re: how it compares to Mexico. Big step up imo.

Re: food. Believe it or not I thought the food was slightly better than Mexico. The buffets are all terrible, but I thought dinner at the Asian and Italian place was decent.

Re: people having full convos. I observed this as well. Got to the point where I watched some of the shows back behind the OBH sign next to the long pool. Still awesome sound and the light show was great from back there.

We thought the food was fine. Pizza place was decent. Hibachi thing at Zen was fun. Italian was Italian. I actually had a really good ribeye at toro. Omelette station for breakfast was good. Only did late night room service once but chicken strips did the trick. Some of the poolside stuff looked bad and buffet lunch didnít look good but after reading about Mexico we were pleasantly surprised.

I ate at the falefal/shawarma middle eastern place and got a grilled chicken w avocado sandwich and it was cold, slimy and not good. Wasnít sure how they called it ďgrilledĒ

Then went to the Italian place. Figured fried calamari would be good since they just fry the heck out of it but it was a little rubbery and slimy and not great tasting. The marhgarita flatbread was decent enough though.

night one was really cool.  i just wish i had moved up a bit closer to avoid all the talking.  but to hear a lot of those songs (for the first or second time) was a treat.
night two was one of the best days of music in a long time for me.  i never saw spoon before and they were a really good choice to open for mmj i thought, really whetted the appetite so to speak.  anyway i was pretty sure it would be albums, but hearing the opening track it was all smiles.  i had actually heard z at t5, but it was still awesome.  ism though is such an awesome album, and its so long, its such a monster...when i go to concerts of bands i love, i always want more.. some bands entire show would be the length of ism, and then to get z on top of that- and then just saturday night party full cobra.. it was a great night i wont ever forget.  id like to talk more about the music, but how many times can one say somehtign liek "oh that was the best pww, dondante, etc.. "  they always feel awesome.  the whole vibe of the event was great, awesome, positive, fun but some serious rock n roll..

 i really dont know what to make of all the hiatus/breakup talk.  there were moments onstage that just oozed this positive, awesome energy, like a greater than the sum of all parts feeling, that i dont think those guys would want to give up on.  just felt like that really cant be it for good. maybe i was seeing what i wanted to see, but it looked and felt electric..  i could see a break, sure, but its not like jim has been restricted from doing his own thing the last few years, so im not really sure why that long a break would be needed.  i dont know any of those guys and wouldnt have a clue what it is really like to be in a band a long time, but it just looked like a lot of love as a total outsider looking up at the stage..

i hope this isnt it.. i had a blast and really want to go back, and i am bummed i couldnt make the final night- i love the last few albums and think there are some great songs.  but im glad for the time i was able to be there..

also pretty remarkable to do get people to travel to 4 nights in the carribbean, play 10 hours of music, and no covers, and not really a repeat.. the obh doesnt really count given the circumstances ya know? 

only a handful of bands can do that.. kudos and thanks!

Not much to add but hereís my 2 cents...

Regarding the hotel itís bigger than last year (my first OBH was 2017) but all to the good, surprisingly.  More for kids to do (Kids Club was great).  Much better, in fact terrific beach, even though it was so rough they only allowed swimming the first day.

Food is not overall great but I wonder whether the food naysayers tried lunch or dinner at Ipanema.  They had a decent buffet followed by some truly superb roast meat they bring around and carve at your table (several cuts of beef, chicken, pork lamb).  Between that and the breakfast buffets I was pretty happy.  Also heard good things about the Mexican restaurant though we didnít try it.

Like others have said, people were super nice, both staff and attendees.  Iíd agree it was a pretty ďcleanĒ vibe though make no mistake there was plenty of weed around.  I met really  nice people.

Before I get to MMJ I have to mention that Iím a big fan of PTJ and they killed their set.  Much better than the only other time I saw them live, and it was hugely fun to meet other fans who appreciate where they are in their journeyó a band who has found their groovy, psychedelic  voice and is in full bloom.

I am a pretty big MMJ fan but not hardcore enough to know precisely what was happening on night 1.  It blew me away and I knew the set list had to be putting a big smile on diehards Ď faces, but not until the next day did I know it had been TF and AD in their entirety.
Nonetheless I loved every moment of the show and knew it was legendary just from how freaking great it was!

Night 2 was my nirvana, hearing my husbandís favorite album back to back with my own.  It was a special night and a phenomenal show.  And yes, Cobra was incredibl

Night 4 was also terrific.  It opened up Waterfall to me in a whole new way and Iíve been listening to it since, finding so much new (to me).

Does anyone know where the idea for OBH came from?  It is such a great concept and even more incredibly SO WELL EXECUTEDó never feels crowded, totally mellow and constantly mind-blowing at the same time.  I will never miss it if I can help it!  I hope thereís a 2019 though it sounds like maybe not.  Anyway Iíd bet pretty high that itís going to happen again!

Fun fact, as I continue to process these great shows I think of little moments, after Evil Urges the song finished the last night, Carlís little boy brought out his guitar for Touch me part 1. Such a precious moment and a smiling ear to ear dad thing. I didnít talk to many people who saw it but I sure hope a video surfaces.

Started with the last night first:

https://archive.org/details/mmj2018-03-05.flac

By this point in the weekend I had misplaced my windscreens, so this one was with no "protection."  Of course, this night had the most breeze out of the 3.  However, as I was converting and tracking it, I noticed most of the wind noise was between tunes.  Not sure which gods were smiling on me that night, but I'm glad they did.  Perhaps they were making up for not allowing me to get Portugal the Man since it was way too windy for their set.

Now for the talkers.  As people have said, it was pretty bad back by the board.  After the first night, I was considering moving closer to the stage just to get away from them, but the security of putting my stand at the VIP area fence won out and I stayed there.  Not sure why people would spend that amount of money to go talk to their friends about random things, and not pay attention to the bands, but to each their own I guess.

Excellent shows all around!  Hopefully tonight I'll get to the Saturday night sets.  The Friday night ones are going to be incomplete and take some more work, so I'm saving them until last.  I'll post here when they're up.

why would anyone who wants a great show throw anything at all at a band? It's one of the most selfish things you can aside from holding your phone directly in view of the person behind you taking video.

If I saw this, I'd have to channel my inner Jules and  say "throw a glowstick at Carl again" and give em this stare

we were wondering about the genesis of it all........at what point in time, what year, what city, what band, what venue.....when, exactly, did the first fan sneak in the first glowstick and hurl it thru the air during the concert?

i'd love to know, 'cause they need to be slapped.

we had quite a graveyard of popped balloons and deflated beach balls around us.  it's cute at first, but i came to watch the shows, not dodge projectiles for 3 hours.

We had a fabulous time at our 4th OBH, and felt extremely grateful to attend, with the band treating us to their wonderful catalog, in order of release.  We met so many great people, and it was awesome to see many, many, old faces as well.  We enjoyed the beach, arriving 2 days early, and spent WED, THU, FRI & SAT on the beach and SUN & MON at the pool, since the oceans was not happy.  On a side note, I believe this beach has red flags ALOT!  I have a friend who attended this place twice for conventions, and both times it was red flagged, and now OBH.  Of course the full moon contributed.

I want to thank the band.  I had a chance to meet and shake Tom's had right before PTM.  All I could think to say was, "thank you for all the band is giving us and tell him, he constantly had the hugest smiles nights 1 & 2." (see pics others post).  He replied, of course.

Regarding the venue, yes it was bigger, but it didn't feel that way to us.  Mostly because I studied the map before hand and we were in an "A" building.   The food was once again very good, IF you ate at the restaurants.  The Fox Brothers BBQ was OK at best.  The chicken was cold and the ribs were very tough, and we were there at the very beginning.  For folks that didn't eat good, skip the buffets.  We at at Los Galos and Zen twice each, along with a 3 a.m. pizza, from Pizzeto.  The restaurants were very big and handled the crowds well.  Also, my stomach handled the DR better than Mexico.

Regarding the talkers, I believe the extra 1K contributed to this.  I met a few people that didn't know the first 4 albums were played nights 1 & 2, along with an older gentleman that enjoyed night 1, but skipped night 2.  He had a blast night 3, and thought he would see night 4 from the back, in a sofa.

On our transportation out of the venue, a manager got on the buss and rara'd us, said he is now the biggest MMJ fan, and we were the best crowd ever.  He also mentioned there were 3,700 attendees.

Making friends

Is everyone here on this forum also in the FB group? I was hoping to meet a few more people and make lifelong friends, but to be fair, my husband and I were on a mini-moon and not being as outgoing as usual. I spent two mornings in the spa using resort credits and then by the time we made it out to the pool Ė and we went to one of the smaller ones because it was easier to find chairs there Ė we just lounged and ate and watched the turtles swimming by. But everyone that we did talk to was nice; we just never talked long enough to exchange names.

Next yearís dates

It was our first OBH and probably not our last. Thereís a tiny of part of me thatís hoping itís the same weekend next year, which is also my folksí 50th wedding anniversary, which means we wouldnít be able to go. And then thereís a huge part of me that hopes it shifts just a little bit and that the temptation turns out to be too great and I make another unsound financial decision (we just put our wedding on plastic, so thereís a reckoning on the way) that my husband will give me crap about until weíre there and heís having the time of his life.

In one way, Iím happy to hear the rumor that they signed a 3-year contract with the HRHPC, and in another, I was sort of hoping for a change of scenery. Donít get me wrong, based on the reports, this venue was way better than Mexico, but Iíd love going somewhere new (and slightly closer). And while we didnít have any travel issues, I would definitely look into pre-nights next time; as long as itís not super early, I think post-nights might be too depressing, at least at the same resort. The overbooked airlineís offer of a $1000 voucher and extra all-inclusive night was so tempting, and then when I was standing in that awful second screening line (where they take your passport away from you), I was really wishing Iíd taken it.

Chatter & tall people

So, I was a little concerned because while I like MMJ and had been to one show before, Iím not a super fan. Like, I didnít know the other band membersí names Ė I know them now (even recognized Tom standing in line on the same flight home) Ė or all of the albums. That said, this was an AWESOME introduction and I feel so privileged to have been able to hear all 7 in order. I especially loved Night 1. That said, we got pretty close to the stage, Jim side, like 10 rows back if there were rows, and I was going insane with the chatter. I donít even know all the songs Ė some it was the first time Iíve ever heard them Ė and for that very reason, I wanted people to shut the hell up.

And I saw that some of the tall people were getting shit from the short people, and there were a couple in front of me (somehow the same dude stood in front of me EVERY time) that were annoying, but I couldíve moved, or he probably wouldíve let me in front. Tall people canít help being tall, but people can SHUT up, not throw stabby glowsticks and sticky drinks, and not wave their totems in your face. I think theme night is fun, but some peopleís hats/costumes were kind of a pain in the crowdÖmaybe that could be more of a daytime thing? Iíve been to plenty of big festivals, and I was expecting a little more out of this crowd honestly. It was a lot of the same inconsiderate behavior you see at any other festival Ė maybe the difference is that people at OBH are so happy to be there that theyíre more tolerant of the idiots? Anyway, I REALLY HOPE THEY GIVE US THE RECORDINGS and that you canít hear all the chatting.

Food and beer share

According to FB Ė that bastion of truth Ė lots of people got sick. I have a pretty strong stomach and didnít, but I didnít feel particularly well the whole time Ė but thatís probably due to the booze, carbs, and sugar more than anything. I wasnít over or underwhelmed by the food. Zen and Ciao were fine. The lunch buffet with the ramen and poke (yes, I ate raw fish) was pretty good. I thought the late night room service was pretty poor, but not awfulÖand while it looked dodgy, I thought it was nice that they had food out by the stage because it was really easy to sort of forget to eat. I also feel in love with the empanadas at the coffee stand.

More bathrooms for us lowly folk with super far away rooms wouldíve been nice. There was one time where I looked at the line and knew it would actually be faster to walk back to the room, but then I couldnít still hear the music.

We only went to one activity, the beer share, and that was pretty funÖand we got to see Britt Daniel walk by before his show. I wish they had put up signs to organize the beer by type and/or region, but I know this is the first year Cloud 9 took over and the little mugs were a cute touch.

Okay, I didnít mean to write this muchÖ

Summary: had a great time; want to go again.

I'm not a jealous or envious kind of person, but chatter about these shows is pushing the limit.  Three nights and seven albums including every MMJ song they have ever released is mind boggling.  Work will never allow us to attend given the current timing of this event which is even more unfortunate because my birthday happened to fall on the last night of this year's fun where they played for 3.5 hours.

I'm glad folks enjoyed the shows and definitely wish we could have been there.  I echo the hope the band finds a way to get proper copies of the shows in the hands of fans!

I'm glad folks enjoyed the shows and definitely wish we could have been there.  I echo the hope the band finds a way to get proper copies of the shows in the hands of fans!
I feel your pain. Itís unbelievable to me that people who arenít even familiar with the catalogue shelled out money for this. And all the people talking. I canít imagine spending thousands of dollars to go to a festival of a band I donít absolutely love. Happy for everyone that made it, but damn. Also idk how I feel about trying to go in the future since they already played EVERYTHING this year...

One thing about chatter and talking you hear - this is the only show where people are delivering you "free drinks" the entire time.  There is a lot of "thank yous" "gracias" and thinks like that being said when they hand you a drink, plus people placing specific drink orders with the staff.  I was by the soundboard -- people were into the show, and having fun and not just chatting the night away, but there was a lot of "excuse me" and "heads up" because full trays of drinks were coming into the crowd.

Funny story - one guy dropped an entire tray of drinks on me, i was soaked from the chest down.  He was so upset but I just started laughing, told him "fuck it, don't worry about it" I put my arm around him and we rocked out!  The staff was awesome!  Lots of them getting down during the show.

Can anyone help me with the best app for an ANDROID to listen to these shows?  I read through my wife's Facebook account others mentioning one, but couldn't find it on Android.  The ones I do find have shit reviews.  Thanks

Thanks for the notation help.  New text files soon.

With today's email I don't feel as bad about losing part of the first night.  I'll still upload what I have in the next few days though.

I got an email about the improper track split between In Its Infancy and Get To the Point.  I'll get new files up for those two at some point for the purists.

Sorry for the amateur hour stuff.  I assure you I've been doing this a long time, just not as much recently.  My first MMJ show/upload was when they opened for Wilco summer '05.  After their set ended my wife and I simultaneously said the billing should have been the other way around.  Super glad we got to do this 13 years later.

Judging by your recordings AMATEUR is the LAST word id use to call you by. You've been fantastic Thom Joad! We wouldnt get to hear these shows until theyre released if it wasnt for you. Dont beat yourself up about those types of things! All is well and all can be fixed!

Finally got around to converting the first night.  This one was a little tougher sound quality wise. Since I was over in the corner of the VIP area this night (and not more centered as I was for the other two) had to add some gain and fix the L/R balance.  Hopefully it came out OK for casual listening.  Also, this is the worst of the 3 for talkers.  It got tough to listen to at some points and I've become conditioned to them over the years.  The party of people in the left channel were pretty drunk, and acting like they wanted me to tell them to quiet down just so it could be made into an issue, so I just shot a few hairy eyeballs their way and hoped for the best.  I hope they hear this at some point and realize how dumb their conversations sounded in comparison to what was going down on stage.

As I said before, I had some battery cable issues.  I debated not uploading any tune that was cut, but since this was the only recording (until the official release), I decided to do them as well.  The end of "I Think I'm Going To Hell" is cut.  The beginning of "Lowdown" starts for 10 sec., then a quick cut, but the majority of the tune is there.  I wasn't even going to include "Honest Man" as it has 2 cuts, but I figured someone might want to hear a part of it.  Then the end of "If It Smashes Down" has a cut but it's almost at the very end.

Hope everyone enjoys it!

I laughed my ass off at the women talking at 1:35 of "I Will Be There When You Die" talking about how much she loves live music and spends all her excess money on in her life....ha.  Must have been there to see PTM and NR.

sounds fantastic!!! i guarantee the band just told you or Ryan Pickett did, to not release the full recording of this night to get the fans to buy the downloads. Which any fan would be nuts not to do, but these recordings are fantastic and we can compare the sbds to them and make sure. One of the most interesting Jacket bootlegs is one I have of the first or second night at Fillmore 2005 when Okonokos was being filmed and recorded. Hearing them play the actual versions that would come out on the album was sick, never a cut. just love having it ALL.

100% agree!!  It was pretty bad this year, way worse than OBH 2 & 3.  I guess with the event getting bigger, it's fewer diehard fans and more partying types attending.

I feel really fortunate, must have been in a sweet spot. I only had annoying talkers on night two, a group of three came and set up shop by us and started the chat circle, well we quickly let em know shut up or move on and they did leave without incident. I found the wait staff more annoying than the talkers, and god bless them they do an awesome job but there's one coming past you ever 1-2 minutes. A little more organization like giving each one a section or small quadrant to handle that way 6-10 of them aren't asking you how your doing all the time. They are such nice people who mean well too that it's hard not to just let it go. I had a lot of fun dancing and laughing with them so it is what it is. The Sound Board recordings will surly help get rid of that crowd chatter.

I think it fell in line with NYE17 given the same lyrical revisions (lock on your heart) and the arrangement was very close to that version as well (which makes sense).  The set placement outside of album order made sense too given its appropriate encore treatment.

Hard to "rank" overall on that list, but I'd like to think the NYE17 and OBH4 versions mark a 3.0 era for this great song - 2012 saw it evolve significantly and now we are seeing it in a new light

I'm not sure SLC 2012 was the "first" live PWW was it?!?!

I can't comment on the OBH4 one as I wasn't there, but for me out of those on your list, The Beacon 2015 is #1 and honestly it would rank there out of all the ones I've seen, not just the six or so I've seen from your list.

I will give the nod to most underrated or at least not talked about as much PWW of the ones I've seen to the Forrest Hills 2017. Man that one went off that night, and with the visuals it was one that's deserving of some praise.  :thumbsup:

I think your right Eric underrated along with Gideon from that show. What a great show that must have been.

so many damn good Jacket shows to dissect and get into. There's so much to discover, even for fiends like us you'll NEVER get done hearing it all. I think we're gonna need 2018 to catch up with these guys!!!

we have the full footage of Bonnaroo 2006 now

we have the official OBH4 recordings which are three 3 hour shows containing every LP

we have a live album and possibly a DVD coming officially from the band

we have all 3 Denver shows to still dissect and understand, with full footage and audio.

So much to discover. so much to see.

The talkers were bad. I wonder if it was because these are their first two albums. With the evolution of the band I think it is safe to say there are fans that arent that familiar with these albums. It was annoying but in person I didn't notice where I stood.

Did you happen to tape any of the other sets? I am trying to find NR and the NS SOB to The Shape Im in back to SOB.

The talkers were bad. I wonder if it was because these are their first two albums. With the evolution of the band I think it is safe to say there are fans that arent that familiar with these albums. It was annoying but in person I didn't notice where I stood.

Did you happen to tape any of the other sets? I am trying to find NR and the NS SOB to The Shape Im in back to SOB.

I filmed that live on FB - search me on FB - it's set to public

Finally got around to converting the first night.  This one was a little tougher sound quality wise. Since I was over in the corner of the VIP area this night (and not more centered as I was for the other two) had to add some gain and fix the L/R balance.  Hopefully it came out OK for casual listening.  Also, this is the worst of the 3 for talkers.  It got tough to listen to at some points and I've become conditioned to them over the years.  The party of people in the left channel were pretty drunk, and acting like they wanted me to tell them to quiet down just so it could be made into an issue, so I just shot a few hairy eyeballs their way and hoped for the best.  I hope they hear this at some point and realize how dumb their conversations sounded in comparison to what was going down on stage.

it's not a good omen then if these people are going to talk during their most fabled albums (meaning first two nights, third night I cant hear it as badly). Its very sad that all they're into is Victory Dance, Circuital, Touch Me II, Black Metal and Wordless and wanna go down there to get plowed , but shit, isn't it about the music? If you've never heard those albums, fine, but wouldn't it be interesting to be able to say the first time you heard At Dawn and Tennessee Fire WAS LIVE??? IN FULL??? and now a small minority of the people who can say that, will not remember most of it due to drunken conversations.

I felt a presence of this type of crowd at the 12/31-1/1 show at 1st Bank Center. It was one of the greatest nights of my life, but shit, to say there weren't any weird presences merely there for getting trashed is a straight up illusion.

I love getting fucked up TO the music!!! Maybe covering my mouth and saying a tid bit like a geek to my girlfriend "This is the first time since Terminal5!" or "this is the shortest Cobra ever" etc. but if you become aware you're bothering people either knowingly or unknowingly at an MMJ show, ya just stop right there because...this is an experience....and you don't ruin a Jacket show for someone, that's a cardinal sin damnit

Until the tapes and comments here, I hadn't heard anything about chatterbugs at the shows.  I watched each night from as close to dead center as I could, about 1/4 or 1/3 of the way between the stage and the sound board.  I like to have a nice full view of the stage, the lights, and in this case, the moon just off to the right of the stage each night.

The sound was beautiful, as usual (kudos to all the hard-working folks in the crew who make that happen with such stunning regularity).  The people there were all lovely too.  Like rkwedge said, the wait staff were perhaps a bit too omnipresent, but it is hard to be too upset about that.

I imagine in a few weeks when the official recordings are released it will be easy to forget about the fact that some people at the shows didn't take in the music as most of us did (or would).

My Last One Big Holiday 2018

I am not one to complain on the boards but I feel like I have been writing this post since the moment I got off the bus and began the check in process. Please do not crucify me as this isnít meant to be anything other than a venting review.  Driving to the resort was completely different than last year. The poor construction sites along the main drive were so depressing. I remember last year the party really began as soon as you got off the bus so I was fine with the shanty town landscape. Please note that I am talking about within the Hardrock grounds. We arrived around 4PM and began the check in process.

As we were walking through the halls it seemed just like the Riveria Maya. Then we walked into great room. Granted there were close to 1500 people in the check in room but the floor was littered with debris. The bar was a hodge podge of fold up tables. I was given warm beer with ice cubes. To cap things off the overwhelming smell of mildew hung thick in the air. The check in line for the event was too long so I continued on to my room.

I found the room to be bigger than last years and was also pleasantly surprised with a view of the main stage. We continued on to the Broken Social Scene show. Once at the stage we began to get the lay of the land. Two bars and two buffet lines. Instead of bamboo with nice wood tops it was metal with vinyl stickers. Presidente is a quality beer which I often drink at home on warm summer days so that was nice surprise. Broken Social Scene was fine but I think with all the frustration with the travel I began to be overserved and donít remember much of that set.

My Morning Jacket took the stage and began playing their first album. I love MMJ but donít know their discography well enough to know they were playing everything in order. They played well and tight as usual. I got to see Picture of You and Phone Went West which are two of my favorite songs.

I got out of bed around 10 the next morning and headed to Toro for breakfast not great. I asked for a water to rehydrate and was given a juice glass filled with a plastic bottle. I get people are concerned about the water there however pouring it out of crinkly plastic bottle doesnít exactly scream luxury. The wait staff expects tips regardless of level service. Thatís not how I operate. Last year I tipped over 400 dollars so its not because I am cheap but I believe tips are earned.

I went down to the beach to meet up with my friends and asked and attendant for a chair. He told me to hold on with his index finger. I waited about 10 minutes before asking another guest if I could use a unattended chair. The beach was fine and the water warm little did I know it was the only day I could get in the water. I am not blaming anyone for the weather just making an observation.

We had Pizza for dinner the second night. Service was quality and the food was fine. We headed to Spoon which was fine except I felt like maybe the lead singer was having issues with hearing and was definitely letting the people on the side of the stage know. He tossed his guitar off to the side of the stage showing no respect for the equipment. I found the keyboardist/ guitarist to doing maybe just a little too much with his head banging and on stage antics. Carl is one of the best guitarist out there and when he gets to shredding it actually looks like heís just in the music not trying to make up for lack luster guitar play.

After reading various social media sites it became apparent MMJ was going to play It still Moves and Z that evening which are monster albums. However being able to follow along on Spotify of what they were going to play kind of took some of the magic away. Watching OBH from the side then having  beer, water bottles and anything else not strapped down to the ground fly through the air was somewhat comical and even more so when I read of people getting hit in the head with full beers. We went to bed immediately after and the thumps from the DJ party made me wish our room was elsewhere on the resort.

We woke up on Sunday and went to Ipanema which had been recommended on social media. It was delicious especially those little triangle hash browns. We got ready for the pools as the water and wind proved to be too much for us out on the beach. We went to a quiet pool at the back of the resort and had a blast. The drinks flowed and I even got touch a monkey. We listened to Hurray for the Riff Raff announce the name of her band no less than 6 times we counted from our balcony. Sylvan Esso tore the stage down great show will definitely have to check them out again. As we werenít that familiar with Portugal the Man we watched that from the balcony the Oasis cover was the highlight. We then filed into the ďSee the Show TheaterĒ for Moon Taxi. They were at capacity somehow so we had to wait. We found the floor to be carpeted and it a little muggy inside. We stayed for a few songs and left. It was overcrowded and I had seen them before and really just wanted to see them at an outside venue. I heard two group of guys make a joke about who needed a beer and then one say  hashtag me too which I thought was funny but the woman in front of them told them that was not cool and just really seemed to overstep her boundaries. We partied pretty hard and checked out the casino and had an all around goodtime.

Monday we woke up ready to catch the last 3 albums played in order. Again went to Ipanema and had a lovely breakfast. We sat by the main pool and enjoyed great people watching and great drink service. The BBQ by the pool was great but I could of done without all the smoke the red sauce was awesome. We got changed and ready for the show and watched from one of the side couches which was awesome. Nathanial Rateliff was fine I had seen him before and wasnít too much different from the last time. MMJ tore it down but again seeing them just play the albums was a bit much for me. I think the final straw of the whole thing was my friend being served some Mama Juana with a cigarette in it.  Again we headed to the Theater where we saw J Roddy whose mix was all messed up. His vocals werenít loud enough and again the atmosphere just wasnít that great. I have seen them more times than I can count so wasnít that disappointed.

I found the resort to be dirtier than last year. I thought the golf carts zipping around with unrestricted exhaust to be a nuisance. The paths could of used a good power washing prior to our arrival. The maintenance schedule had no rhyme or reason. I found the staff to be somewhat accommodating but not what I am used to. I think people were talking a lot during the MMJ sets because they knew what was coming. There were no cheers when that first chord was struck of your favorite song. I get that it was quite a moment in My Morning Jacket history I just wish I had known before. I will not be attending again unless its at another resort. I look forward to my next MMJ show but am glad its over a year away.

Considering you basically heard the Jacket albums for the first time EVER live at OBH4 and didn't even know they were playing them in order (until you went on Spotify while on an island in the Caribbean , on vacation watching the best fucking band in the world play you 3 3 hour plus shows and EVERYTHING they've ever done on an album  ( once again albums you'd never heard all the way through there had to be ...like...50 different surprises even though Spotify told you the song titles) and yet....its fucked? Its not enough? Your complaints are bitter and frankly the length is to a disturbing level that i only thought i was capable of. But at least those are just setlists, not aimless bitching at the greatest fucking band in the motherfucking world giving you the experience of a lifetime, of which you did not partake.

Interesting review, Piton. I'm sorry that people now hate you and curse you out for expressing your opinion. Its sad that we've gotten to that point societally.

Between the exhaust fumes and the cigarette in the food and ice cubes in the beer there were clearly things there that were inexcusable and part of the whole cash grab. On the other hand most participants in this forum who were there thought these were some of the greatest shows ever and those that weren't wish they were due to the albums being played in full. I think its a different and somewhat odd take (knowing what was coming and that dampening the experience) but the more I think about it I think the band anticipated this at T5 and therefore created wild pure-spontaneity "2nd sets" so surprise audience members.


I think the bigger question here is: Why did you go? I don't mean this in the way some others might as in "YOU SHOUDL BE BANNED FROM EVER GOING BECAUSE YOU ARE INSUFFICIENTLY APPRECIATE FOR THE SUPREME LEADER" but rather simply: Why spend thousands of dollars on a band that you're not obsessed with. I genuinely cannot empathize. Considering flights are a fixed price essentially then you're basically choosing between spending X on a really really nice hotel with world class food and incredible amenities and service (i.e. Fairmont Ritz Carlton Four Seasons etc...) or a mediocre hotel with (and everyone going in knew this) mediocre food pretty good service and less than mediocre beer (I will be snobby for a second and tell you emphatically that Presidente is NOT good beer (you should up your game for your own sake)) for X plus $$$.


I genuinely had no idea that "casual fans" (I mean this in the sense of people who don't know an album when they hear it no disrespect) would spend the immense amounts of money on things like this when they could get way better bang for their buck elsewhere. (I knew this when I heard the talking in the recordings but not directly from anyone here). So I ask again in all earnestness: Can you please explain what motivated you to go to this and not to one of the other Carribean Rock Hotel Rentals? Nothing in this line of questioning implies that one should not have the right to spend money as they see fit and voice criticisms of that which they deem deserving of criticism.

Cheers!

I probably wouldn't consider myself a casual fan. I was at OBH 3 and Red Rocks 2016 and maybe a dozen other shows. I have spent probably more than I should have on acquiring and framing posters from other shows. I like the band because the way it makes me feel when they're live. I actually saw on other forms of social media people getting berated for voicing their opinion post shows. I met people last year at OBH3 that that would have been their first show. I was excited to see some of those bands play in a outdoor venue (i.e. J Roddy, Moon Taxi). I also thought the Hard Rock in Mexico was much nicer as did my friends who accompanied me. So I thought Punta Cana would have followed suit. In regard to my loyalty to the band. I could ask the same thing of what drives people to fly to another country and post up on a rail all day with umbrellas and towels covering themselves from the glaring Caribbean sun. How far is too far and how little it too little. To each his own you do you. Whatever driving force led me to write that post I felt I needed to is my choice as is yours to rebuke it. Do I feel robbed of an experience...no. Do I feel like I didn't get my moneys worth...no. Yeah its expensive but if I couldn't afford it I wouldn't have gone. I was just venting. I am happy people had fun. I had a really solid time hanging with my friends and taking in the albums. I also love set list speculation and covers. I am sorry if I ruffled any feathers that was not my intent. I hope the band releases more albums and tours more. Ill be there maybe to the chagrin of others. I hope to see and hear from you all on the boards. Until the next time have a good show.

Cheers

I could of done without

The paths could of used

The maintenance schedule had no rhyme or reason.
i took the liberty of cherry-picking a few things.

the only thing i found different about the drive to the resort was the time it took.

i agree, whatever happened to those nice, thick, non-crinkly plastic bottles?

equipment abuse is unforgivable. i blame pete townshend.   and there's nothing more off-putting than fake head-banging by lousy musicians.  who does he think he's fooling?

maybe put your phone down for a while?

your post just comes off as someone who was desperately searching for something to complain about.  damn carpet.  and how could the "maintenance schedule" ever cross your mind?

and please, it's "could have" or "could've."  every time someone types "could of" english teachers everywhere cry uncontrollably

sorry you had a less-than-stellar experience. glad you got to touch a monkey.

Post by: sillyboob on Apr 05, 2018, 03:59 PM
So I have to say I'm a little chuffed at some of the responses to piton87's review.  I found his observations to be pretty spot on.  And for people to shame him and to say they're glad he won't be attending OBH anymore and to insinuate that he isn't a big enough fan to have gone to One Big Holiday, man, that's just weak.  To criticize his choice of beer, wow, that sort of beer-snobbishness is so uncool (admitting to being a beer snob does not make it cool).  Neither does being a grammar notsee.

Yes, a lot of people have posted about how great OBH4 was, but that doesn't mean it isn't open to criticisms.  For me, this was my third OBH, and I'd consider myself one heck of a fan of MMJ.  That said, I don't really enjoy listening to albums, I prefer listening to live shows, to hear the live versions of the songs, to hear the flow of the show, to hear the great covers and guest spots that MMJ has done in the past, especially at One Big Holiday.  Just look at the downloads of OBH 1 - 3, so many covers, so many collaborations.  So having an expectation of something similar at OBH4 was pretty reasonable.  But when it turned into One Big Album Playback, the spontaneity and some of the fun was just missing.  The excitement of not knowing when your favorite song was going to be played, or if you'd get a white whale played, or who was going to come out and guest on a goofy cover (Mama, Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys anyone?) just wasn't there.  Sure, seeing all the albums in their entirety is a pretty big deal, but this was OBH, not T5, where it was announced, and the encores added variety to the magic.

There definitely were some downsides to being in Punta Cana for some.  For me, we had a tv that didn't work for two days, and our in-room fridge had to be replaced.  Sure, the beach was nice, but the tides sure did make that beach unusable.  The beach stage had to get taken down, some of the outdoor shows were moved indoors, where there wasn't enough capacity for the crowd, and the sound was bad.  And the flight from the west coast was just a pain, especially when compared to the very centrally located (for US fans) Riviera Maya.

And again, the larger crowd, the talkers, the downgrade (my opinion) of the concert pavilion food choices; there are all valid issues.  The music definitely was great, even if the MMJ sets were predictable (although I liked swapping Phone and Strangulation's order).  One small disappointment for me was ending with OBH, even though it was already played on night 2.  This was a perfect chance to work in a great cover or two.  For me, and for the girl near the disabled viewing platform who yelled "Play some Petty!" before the encore started, I thought ending with "American Girl" would have been epic!  But alas, it was not to be.

All this being said, I did get two of my white whales, "Into The Woods" and "Moving Away", but I've still yet to hear "Where To Begin".  The other bands who played were great too.  Broken Social Scene kicked things off with a great upbeat set, reminding me a lot of The War On Drugs set in 2015.  Spoon & Nathaniel Rateliff were both great!!  Pres Hall was awesome fun as they always are.  The afternoon sets were a blast, as were Portugal. The Man.  PTM brought some cool covers (Metallica, Pink Floyd, T-Rex and Oasis) that went over really well.  Still can't get into Sylvan Esso (after seeing them three times now - OBH2, Red Rocks in 2015 opening for MMJ, OBH4), but from the posts here and on the Facebook page they clearly have a lot of fans.  A little bummed about the late night sets that were in the theater, couldn't get in.  The food was decent, but nothing different from Riviera Maya in my opinion, although the concert pavilion food wasn't as good.  Check-in / checkout was relatively easy, although we were there a day early.  The staff was very friendly, the resort itself was nice enough.  I felt that the DR was a slightly less well-off Riviera Maya for the most part.

Similar to piton87, I don't feel like I was cheated in any way, just that my experience was different than my two previous One Big Holidays.  And mainly, it came down to the sets that My Morning Jacket played.  Had I known going into it that it was going to be album playback from front to back, with none of the spontaneity of the covers and collaborations, maybe I would have enjoyed the sets a little more.  Again, this was one of my favorite bands playing their entire album catalog straight though, which is a pretty cool thing.  It's just not what I had come to expect from the previous One Big Holidays.  Which I suppose puts a large part of the blame on myself, for having any expectations at all. 

And now for the funny part.  Since I prefer listening to live shows instead of albums, when these downloads come out, I'm going to have live shows of every MMJ album to date to listen to.  I bet some of the more obscure, less played tracks will quickly become favorites that I wasn't aware of, hearing them in the live setting.

Alright, enough of my two cents.  My Morning Jacket is a great band, One Big Holiday is a great experience, the people you meet at OBH are great, we need to enjoy it all while we can.  And like piton87 points out, these words are mine, and you have every right to add your two cents as well.

Peace and Love people, Peace and Love :thumbsup:

My few observations, yes the food at and all inclusive resort like this is what it is, you have a couple good restaurants and a lot of blah.  Find the good ones and stay with them.
The Riviera Maya was completely renovated in 2014 so it's a lot newer than Punta Cana and yes it showed but it's like anything the older it gets the more wear. Punta Cana is also twice the size as Riviera Maya so more golf carts are needed to move staff from end to end, heck they rolled one right outside my balcony the day we arrived, funnier then shit. Lastly, the indoor theatre was a joke but that all stemmed from Mother Nature putting an end to our late night beach parties. My question there was why night 1 and 2 they just moved it to the main stage and night 3 and 4 it went indoors. there's probably a reason, I just never heard it. Lastly, I will never complain about what they play, just fucking play and I'm in heaven, the vibe of the whole experience is one that's hard to explain but it's the way you wished people treated one another always not just for a week.
Here's a very good write up from Jenni, I think she's put it better than anyone.

I think the late night sets for night 1 & 2 were moved to the main stage because of the easy setup - Pres Hall were already up there with their gear, they really just needed to pack up MMJ's equipment and set up the Pres Hall drum set.  And for night 2, it was just setting up the DJ booth, so for both nights the breakdown / setup was relatively easy for the late night sets.  Not so much for Moon Taxi & J Roddy, unfortunately.

Apologies for my rude comment.
Hope you make it back and enjoy your next OBH

This was my first OBH and boy do I still smile and get goosebumps thinking about what we witnessed. I understand the excitement of trying to guess what will be played next, me and my buddy talked everyday for a week about what they would open with and close with each night and trying to guess covers but when I turned to him after the first 3ish songs in amazement that they were all from TTF I still hadn't grasped what was happening,
When Jim mentioned how special it was that they were playing the songs from TTF and it was the 20th anniversary I thought "ok that makes sense, holy cow can't imagine if they play the whole thing" then they did...then they played At Dawn and I lost my mind.

The whole next day our crew was just speculating "how could they possibly fit the remaining albums in their next 2 nights" and we still had doubts they would play the remaining discography, "I said, if those opening chords of Mahgeetah start, this place is going to explode" and it happened and it was life-changing. That night of It Still Moves and Z and a full Cobra, best musical experience of my life.

Night 3 was probably the best "off-night" I could've asked for, I love SE, PTM and Moon Taxi (count me in on those disappointed about the indoor stage, but I still had a blast in there).

Night 4 was amazing, my GF got to hear Thank You Too! which I had pretty much promised she would hear (thank goodness she did or I would've been in hot water) and I got to hear Remnants and Librarian +some others obvs.

As for the resort, thought it was great, although I'm a pretty simple guy, don't need much, did get a little tired of eating meat and carbs and was ready for a nice fresh salad when I got home.

Can't wait to get the downloads and put them all in one playlist, press shuffle and enjoy for the next year until we get some new music(fingers crossed).

Again, apologies for my rude comment about not wanting you back at the next one, can't wait to be back at OBH5

@MMJTX - It's probably true for most of us, your first OBH is the best OBH.  It's just such a cool event.  The location is beautiful, the warm breezes, the free flowing booze, the nonstop music, going to bed knowing tomorrow you get to do it all over again.  For me, OBH2 was just over the top, and that was my first OBH.  Once you get accustomed to going, it's hard not to go the next year, even if you're on the west coast and the flights to the DR are a little rough.

It's the music that keeps us coming back.  My Morning Jacket's music.  The other bands are just a great big bonus!!!

Lots of good follow up points.  The first time doing anything, is the best and once you go you will want to go back!

The one thing I stressed on the "Thank you, we want to hear from you" survey was, "the need to pick up the cans and cups they are serving during the show"!  My wife was very impressed that as each time a woman left a stall, they mopped and wiped it down.   I had no issue knowing song x was next and what song would be my first time hearing.  This scheduled my pee breaks.

I think one thing everyone's missing here is the spontaneity within these versions of the songs played at OBH4 especially the rare ones like If All Else Fails, If It Smashes Down, By My Car, One in the Same etc. I also noticed changes and culminations of all previous jams and riffs that a song had gone through onstage from its creation until 2018 all within the same song. Its fantastic. Masterplan is a great candidate for that. The spontaneity is there my friends.


I have no problem when someone voices an opinion or criticism of this band I've had many, but it's just my interpretation that you had been taking OBH4 for granted.  Im probably wrong.

I did think it was tacky to end with Magic Bullet then OBH again and done....coulda fit a few covers in there to please everyone.  But man... three 3 hour shows....wow

you're a grammar nazi.

really, it just hurts my brain to read "could of."

punta cana wasn't free of problems, but I just think you had to be actively searching for issues to find them.  all in all I prefer the hard rock riviera maya, but i'll have no problem going back to the dominican republic.

Slappymoe - I'd like to withdraw my grammar notsee comment with apologies.  Your comment wasn't on anything I said, but still rubbed me wrong, kinda how "could of" does to you.  I get where you're coming from, there are definitely words & phrases that just get under my skin when they are used in conversation.

I'm with you on the preference for the Riviera Maya, but, like you, I'll most likely have no problem going back to the DR for OBH5.

Again, my apologies.

I agree with you Lonn, about the versions of the songs, about how they were played.  I remember liking how 'Lowdown' sounded, in particular.  There were others as well, the memory is just a little foggy these days.  That's why WE NEED THE DOWNLOADS ALREADY!!!!

It was "I Think I'm Going To Hell" for me night 1. I couldn't even sleep that night, that was running on a loop thru my head. Carl's guitar was so cutting and in your face on that. Sadly I doubt even the soundboard recordings will capture that or be edited down. Master Plan and Xmas Curtain are really doing it for me lately now too, these two songs have really been getting stronger and stronger.

i know man !!! it sounds so sick!! i would love to hear the band use more Phaser. They used to use that effect a fair amount from 2002-2005 (you can hear it on Okonokos specifically I WIll Sing You Songs, the end of Phone and maybe part of Off The Record) but I love the effect, it's one of my favorite effects ever, if not the most. I've got my Phase 90 on almost all of the time. Would love to hear them use phaser on stuff like Dondante and Steam Engine, it would really give such satisfactory thickness during the spacey parts. Just my two cents.

But yes, there ARE dynamic changes in the songs for OBH4. If you tuned out because you knew what song it was, that's on you hahah.

Have yer opinion! Thats just fine!
Nobody should ever feel like the Nazis are coming down on them for criticizing the band, but at the other end of the spectrum, we shouldn't be called unfair or mean for not liking what you said.

I think it's pretty cool how the situation was figured out and everyone rose to take responsibility for the things they said and if they didn't like what was said retroactively, they said something about it. That's very cool!!

This forum IS a peace and love place! Wasn't trying to be mean merely Pointing out the flaws i interpreted from your novel length post. I suppose jealousy of not being there or at any OBH previously made me hyper critical.  Sorryness to you!!! But hey man you got Because I Do honky tonk women version, Rollin Back, Remnants, a FULL Cobra and the greatest one I've ever heard, Magic Bullet for a second time ever, If It Smashes down second time ever , an All ThingsMust Pass version of If All Else Fails, the UltimaSpector version of By My Car, the odyssey of Evil Urges FULL in its beauty and bizarrekitchen sink acid madness, the reckoning of seeing It Still Moves full on, 3 hours each night, etc upon etc.

  It seems the food WAS hit and miss im seeing such great reviews and then such shitty ones. It's something that's definitely always worried me.

 Peace and love and bless the Jacket from whoever's up above

My Last One Big Holiday 2018

I am not one to complain on the boards but I feel like I have been writing this post since the moment I got off the bus and began the check in process. Please do not crucify me as this isnít meant to be anything other than a venting review.  Driving to the resort was completely different than last year. The poor construction sites along the main drive were so depressing. I remember last year the party really began as soon as you got off the bus so I was fine with the shanty town landscape. Please note that I am talking about within the Hardrock grounds. We arrived around 4PM and began the check in process.

As we were walking through the halls it seemed just like the Riveria Maya. Then we walked into great room. Granted there were close to 1500 people in the check in room but the floor was littered with debris. The bar was a hodge podge of fold up tables. I was given warm beer with ice cubes. To cap things off the overwhelming smell of mildew hung thick in the air. The check in line for the event was too long so I continued on to my room.

I found the room to be bigger than last years and was also pleasantly surprised with a view of the main stage. We continued on to the Broken Social Scene show. Once at the stage we began to get the lay of the land. Two bars and two buffet lines. Instead of bamboo with nice wood tops it was metal with vinyl stickers. Presidente is a quality beer which I often drink at home on warm summer days so that was nice surprise. Broken Social Scene was fine but I think with all the frustration with the travel I began to be overserved and donít remember much of that set.

My Morning Jacket took the stage and began playing their first album. I love MMJ but donít know their discography well enough to know they were playing everything in order. They played well and tight as usual. I got to see Picture of You and Phone Went West which are two of my favorite songs.

I got out of bed around 10 the next morning and headed to Toro for breakfast not great. I asked for a water to rehydrate and was given a juice glass filled with a plastic bottle. I get people are concerned about the water there however pouring it out of crinkly plastic bottle doesnít exactly scream luxury. The wait staff expects tips regardless of level service. Thatís not how I operate. Last year I tipped over 400 dollars so its not because I am cheap but I believe tips are earned.

I went down to the beach to meet up with my friends and asked and attendant for a chair. He told me to hold on with his index finger. I waited about 10 minutes before asking another guest if I could use a unattended chair. The beach was fine and the water warm little did I know it was the only day I could get in the water. I am not blaming anyone for the weather just making an observation.

We had Pizza for dinner the second night. Service was quality and the food was fine. We headed to Spoon which was fine except I felt like maybe the lead singer was having issues with hearing and was definitely letting the people on the side of the stage know. He tossed his guitar off to the side of the stage showing no respect for the equipment. I found the keyboardist/ guitarist to doing maybe just a little too much with his head banging and on stage antics. Carl is one of the best guitarist out there and when he gets to shredding it actually looks like heís just in the music not trying to make up for lack luster guitar play.

After reading various social media sites it became apparent MMJ was going to play It still Moves and Z that evening which are monster albums. However being able to follow along on Spotify of what they were going to play kind of took some of the magic away. Watching OBH from the side then having  beer, water bottles and anything else not strapped down to the ground fly through the air was somewhat comical and even more so when I read of people getting hit in the head with full beers. We went to bed immediately after and the thumps from the DJ party made me wish our room was elsewhere on the resort.

We woke up on Sunday and went to Ipanema which had been recommended on social media. It was delicious especially those little triangle hash browns. We got ready for the pools as the water and wind proved to be too much for us out on the beach. We went to a quiet pool at the back of the resort and had a blast. The drinks flowed and I even got touch a monkey. We listened to Hurray for the Riff Raff announce the name of her band no less than 6 times we counted from our balcony. Sylvan Esso tore the stage down great show will definitely have to check them out again. As we werenít that familiar with Portugal the Man we watched that from the balcony the Oasis cover was the highlight. We then filed into the ďSee the Show TheaterĒ for Moon Taxi. They were at capacity somehow so we had to wait. We found the floor to be carpeted and it a little muggy inside. We stayed for a few songs and left. It was overcrowded and I had seen them before and really just wanted to see them at an outside venue. I heard two group of guys make a joke about who needed a beer and then one say  hashtag me too which I thought was funny but the woman in front of them told them that was not cool and just really seemed to overstep her boundaries. We partied pretty hard and checked out the casino and had an all around goodtime.

Monday we woke up ready to catch the last 3 albums played in order. Again went to Ipanema and had a lovely breakfast. We sat by the main pool and enjoyed great people watching and great drink service. The BBQ by the pool was great but I could of done without all the smoke the red sauce was awesome. We got changed and ready for the show and watched from one of the side couches which was awesome. Nathanial Rateliff was fine I had seen him before and wasnít too much different from the last time. MMJ tore it down but again seeing them just play the albums was a bit much for me. I think the final straw of the whole thing was my friend being served some Mama Juana with a cigarette in it.  Again we headed to the Theater where we saw J Roddy whose mix was all messed up. His vocals werenít loud enough and again the atmosphere just wasnít that great. I have seen them more times than I can count so wasnít that disappointed.

I found the resort to be dirtier than last year. I thought the golf carts zipping around with unrestricted exhaust to be a nuisance. The paths could of used a good power washing prior to our arrival. The maintenance schedule had no rhyme or reason. I found the staff to be somewhat accommodating but not what I am used to. I think people were talking a lot during the MMJ sets because they knew what was coming. There were no cheers when that first chord was struck of your favorite song. I get that it was quite a moment in My Morning Jacket history I just wish I had known before. I will not be attending again unless its at another resort. I look forward to my next MMJ show but am glad its over a year away.   


Sorry I didn't get a chance to reply earlier. Busy few days.

I'm really glad you elaborated on your level of fandom. I would have assumed from your initial post that you knew "the hits" and had not really been to too many shows. Your follow-up corrected that notion. You have seen some good ones! In trying to put myself in your shoes I thought of a band I like enough to travel to the Caribbean to see but have been very neglectful in familiarizing myself with their catalog, Pearl Jam. The fact that I have listened to basically NOTHING ZILCH ZERO after Binaural probably makes me in the eyes of PJ fanatics some sort of ignorant apostate. However, I don't think that lack of knowledge/familiarity would prevent me from going to decent lengths to see them in the right setting.

As I stated in my response I love seeing well articulated criticism here and calling things out for what they are. I'm glad people apologized and since I was criticized for calling out Presidente been I will double down (in the spirit of honesty) and say: I really truly recommend you try out some more exotic stuff and see if you like it more. I can almost guarantee you you will.

Hoping to see you at a show

Just chiming in to sunshine pump.  OBH4 was one of the best times of my life. I've been to all 4 and they are each special. My general rule of thumb is to make the most of these special opportunities. Sure the food is spotty and I had a platinum suite overlooking a drainage ditch. That took me a full hour to correct my attitude!  But as with all things, I believe that we all can control how we feel and control what we choose to focus on. 

1st off - music.  Seriously don't understand how anyone could feel anything other than awe. <shakes head>.  Just my take  but every day I just walked around in a daze of disbelief. Either from what I just witnessed. Or was about to witness.

People, met tons of great folks, great vibes and pretty hard core fans. Sure there were talkers, but that's been a rising trend for all concerts. I remember Jim singing IWBTWYD at the tabernacle a couple of years ago and was shocked at the amount of loudly audible conversations. I did have to quiet someone once but generally i was so focused on the music, it was a nonissue.

Anyhoooo, so stoked for next year.  Peace and love and bring on the dloads.

someone just shared a new hashtag with me....BroBH4 lol

having been to all 4, I can say that being in a new place was refreshing - much bigger resort and the food was about the same.  Room service was pretty awful for our suite, but not C9's fault.

I loved every minute of it - especially seeing our little beer share turn into a 400 person party with 1,000+ beers to choose from.  The undercards were amazing, especially Nate with PHJB the last night. HFRR and PTM also outstanding.  Can't blame C( or the band for the tides killing beach stage, but that indoor theatre was a hot, steamy, crowded mess that I could only last 5 minutes in.

All this being said, I can say I've seen the whole catalogue - no stone unturned and the band was on top of their game - they must have practiced like madmen for days in advance.  So, thank you guys.

And as for the chatters - you can go F yourselves.  Who spends $3k to talk through the Tennessee Fire???????  I had to move like 10 times on night one and got agitated a bit - the Bro factor with 4k people was too much.  And I've gotten reports of hostile behavior (borderline rapey stuff) going on - so that's an issue.  If we get any more OBH fests in the future, I'm hoping C9 and the band can do some social engineering to control the experience and vibe a bit.

Just my 2 cents - no complaints (other than you MFin talkers), just observations....

I agree.  I believe less focus on "larger" additional bands might help bring the atmosphere closer to OBH 1-3.

Interesting comments millerjustin and ditty.  If they announced what they were going to do ahead of time I bet more rabid fans (like myself) would have definitely made the trip and some more casual fans may have opted to pass on OBH4.  I'd like to check out a new resort one of these days, but it's hard to get better than the Riv Maya spot.

I guess there are always talkers.  I remember being surprised that during Dondante at T5 I had to move because many around me was having their own too loud conversations.  Moving constantly during TF or At Dawn would have been taxing, but if I could go back in time I wouldn't mind trying out that experience. 

Meanwhile, I am patiently awaiting the bootlegs!

I certainly understand APR.  I was happily surprised to hear TN Fire and AD and then speculate for the next 3 days, but agree we would have seen more familiar faces had they made this announcement. 

One of my comments on the questioner, for years 2, 3 & now 4, was to please keep the event focused on MMJ and the tropical vacation aspect.  To not "fesitvalize" the event and to keep the music focused on an early evening start time.  I guess you can see what they thought of my comments since the last 2 OBH's have started earlier (5 p.m and now 4 p.m.)
