No tickets is really scaring the shit outta me.i can't believe there's a 99% chance I'll miss these shows all because they announced them at a time when we had just spent my check on Xmas and groceries, essentials etc. If I would've had ANY knowledge that this was coming I would've made the money for it. Now seeing that fans who had money still couldn't get tickets really sickens me. The band having to send us all a tweet to apologize for it happening just makes a deafening sound of doom...only the strong and in the know survive.  Basically unless you were able to be strapped to the computer for 10 hours on a business day, you were screwed out. Finding out im not the only one makes it worse. It's easy to be happy for others but when so many lost out to God knows who ... just scares me. I've been a fan since 2004 and I need to finally break my RR cherry and missing out like this is something that I can barely swallow. I have been smoking way too much weed lately just to boost my cheer. I mean Christ guys and gals my girlfriend had me watching Love Actually and How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days just to cheer me up (she knows I love laughing at shitty movies).

Lord I'm discouraged.
But when my check comes next Wednesday all will be well I hope , but aren't they ALL gone anyway?

Fuckin shit hahah

Btw the whole thing about economics is another reason they're bound together but because they're family. Family supports each other emotionally, financially, mentally and spiritually and this band is nothing different. The family ties are evident and while their differences may be more pronounced and the gap on stage between Jim and Carl may get bigger, they always meet in the middle to duke it out during the apex of the music they make.

"ever" is the strong word here. Obviously they are performing together next year and I bet they are fielding offers for festivals, so that's all we truly have to go on for now.

if they don't book any other shows for 2019, let's hope they get in the studio together. For all I can tell, it's been since the Stinson Beach Waterfall sessions in 2014 since they made new music all together. 

I am going to optimistically assume that a lack of live shows this year means more studio time/ creative process for new music- I am hoping that we see some new tunes revealed at the 3 shows of 2019 and the band has a new album- massive tour for 2020.

For whatever reason, the Waterfall Part 2 doesn't seem to be happening. I get the impression that the band might not be too hyped about the songs ( What I have heard is good, but they might not want it as an album release.)

It is very feasible however, that we can still get a live release from this band ( album/dvd??) before the year is up- supposedly they are in the " mixing" process of that effort.

Jim's creative muse is at a peak right now ( he has released 3 albums since Waterfall came out) If another Jim solo record comes out before new Jacket material, that spells trouble for me, that something in their process isn't clicking..

Jim's comments about the process of " Uniform Distortion" show that he might be a little fed up with how long the creative process takes with Jacket- Every studio release since Evil Urges has seemed like quite the process-

I think we will know a lot more about the state of the band by year's end- If these 3 shows go down without any word of a live album/ new material I think we have reason to be alarmed.

I agree with the statement that they don't seem too jazzed about those tunes, and if the tunes are similar to Magic Bullet and The First Time (both good tunes for sure but also definitely in the lower tier of MMJ's catalog for me) I'd definitely rather see them cook up new stuff with the band in a studio. Also, didn't Jim say that the live record is mixed and it just needs a name and cover art? I feel like I read that was the progress they'd made but I'm not sure where.

Oh, I didn't realize it was mixed! In which case why the hell wouldn't we have it by the end of the year, right? ( one would think) :grin:
