"Trust me when the time comes I will let you know when a certain group of four other musicians will be joining me"

Sounds like it's when, not if.

i remember seeing tim say they had big plans behind touring for this album. i wouldn't be shocked if there was a fall leg added with the jacket guys.
3 weeks of shows coming, september 5th thru 26th.  i have my ticket for zanzabar in louisville.

anyone have intel, or just a wild ass guess, on whether the guys will be doing this leg?

I'm guessing no, seeing that Tim posted 4 days ago on Twitter that Patrick Berkery (ex War On Drugs, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah) will be joining Oaks on drums for the fall tour.

I'd say it's a definite no on the members of MMJ backing him up at the Zanzabar show in Louisville on 9/11/2019 (I'm going), but I'd bet a couple of them show up to be in the audience (Patrick ALWAYS shows up at shows in Louisville). When I saw Carl and Tyler Ramsey at the final show of their most recent tour in Franklin, Tenn. (about 20 mins. south of Nashville) back on 7/27/2019, I made a point of it to ask Carl about the possibility of this happening. I got there super early and spoke to him as they were setting up the merchandise table (got both to sign my show poster). Carl said there were no plans for that ... at the time. Also, as people started filling up the 146 seat Mockingbird Theater, I spotted Tom just a few rows from the top as he and a friend sat down (I was on the top row next to the soundboard). I took the opportunity to thank him in person for the Get Well card he sent me with a cool hand-drawn cartoon when I was recovering from my terrible car wreck back in Nov./Dec. of 2017. I also asked about the possibility of them showing up to be part of the show (prefacing the discussion with the information Carl had given me earlier in the evening). Tom said no plans for that but also mentioned the possibility of it happening in the future (can't remember his exact wording though). Sorry for the bad news, but I did end my conversation with Tom with the comment/request that they should definitely play a show up in Louisville soon and very soon. Hopefully the Hometown Folk pressure gets to them. Good Luck to all us local (Kentucky and surrounding states) folks!

i appreciate the replies.  at the time i bought my tickets it was definitely a FOMO kinda thing.  wasn't familiar with strand of oaks, but if 4/5 of MMJ were playing, i had to be there.

months later, it turns out eraserland is one of my favorite records in years.  can't wait to be there.

It really is a great album.  The LA show was a really good show.  Only downside was it was a little short.  Would've loved to hear a couple more older songs.

Strand of Oaks shows are always fantastic, and always too short. I've seen him a few times and it's never gone longer than about 90 minutes, start to finish. I've heard the same from everybody I know who's seen him too -- it's hard to make that complaint about such a great show, but I wish he'd draw it out a bit sometimes!  :wink:

That really was my only complaint about the show.  I wish I'd caught previous incarnations of the band, but I've made up by going to Youtube and checking out some of their older shows.  A great way to hear the songs from their earlier albums live!

I went to my first Strand Of Oaks show last night, September 11, 2019, at Zanzabar in Louisville, Kentucky. It was really special. I was on the front row/rail with lots of MMJ Family and even a few Forum members. I stepped back for the last song, so I could get a good audio/video recording. I think it turned out pretty good.

He was really hyping these "special guests" on social media.  I thought there was no chance that the MMJ guys didn't show up.  Did anyone?

Only Lacey Guthrie from Twin Limb actually performed. She sang on several songs that she sang on Eraserland. I was on the rail for most of the show so didn't see all who were there, but I did see and spoke with Aaron Hallahan (Patrick's brother) after the show. Craig Pfunder from VHS or Beta and a band member along with Patrick in Jake Shears' band was there too (Jake Shears is performing at Zanzabar tonight, so Patrick and Craig will probably be in the band tonight - wish I was going but have too much to do and another show up in Louisville tomorrow night - Drive-By Truckers). I'm sure there were plenty of people there who were hoping MMJ members would perform, but I knew they probably wouldn't be after having spoken with Carl and Tom at the Carl and Tyler Ramsey show in Franklin, Tenn. back on July 27th. They both told me there were no plans to be there or to perform. However, Tom said they might perform with him at a later date maybe next year.

Just a heads up for anyone close to Austin. Tim is doing a November residency at the Continental Club. It will be every Wednesday. There will be no presales and tickets will be limited to 70 people. Wish I could make one of these shows.
