Thanks to Yayhoos fans, Bloodshot, Robbie Fulks, Bottle Rockets and more

Took me a while to recover from the short Yayhoos weekend over Sept 5-6.
Our gig at the Mercury and the Bloodshot one in Philly required a crazy amount
of pre planning but ended up going exceptionally smooth.

Thanks so much to the folks that came out to the shows. Really impressive
collection of Yayhoo minded Yayhoo fans at the Mercury on a holiday weekend
late at night. Very impressive. We gave 'em the personality show including
a couple songs we bailed on. To explain the no encore thing... I'm the youngest
Yayhoo and we were all just plain finished, not mad:)

On Sunday the 6th we went down to Philly for the Bloodshot party/mini fest and Google
Maps sent us through Staten Island so Dan could see the Sopranos Bridge. We got to
Philly about an hour early.

We had fun watching the bands. Terry saved the ass of the Deadstring Brothers who's drummer
had quit the day before. We had a great time watching the Bottle Rockets kick it out on their new songs
(read a UK interview with Brian Here)
and then we got to do "50 Minutes".
I'll tell you what, the Yayhoos can do "50 Minutes"
On the way down I told the guys that I had drafted the Robbie Fulks to join us for our last song "Signed, Sealed,
Delivered" dedicated to you know who. Robbie was great. He had the happy feat and it was
a blast to let him "drive the car" for a tune.

If any of you bootleg types find a recording of us w Robbie let me know. I'd love to have a copy

Sounds like a great weekend. Too bad I missed out on the Yayhoos with Robbie Fulks. Robbie is such a great performer, saw him in Stockholm earlier this year and he's was great.

I know that a bootleg of the Mercury gig is floating around but I haven't seen the Philly gig yet. I'll let you know if i get my hands on a copy.

Rock on

If you get a bootleg copy, could you post it here for all to view. I bet it was great!
