Yeah, I went to Deercreek last year and it was probably my favorite venue I've been to. Couldn't go this year because I will be out of town. I am hitting up Pittsburgh for the first time next weekend, I managed to get two pavillions off Ebay for only $60 including shipping, it was too good a deal to pass up.
I agree with the earlier perspective about Busted Stuff. Really, with me, it's to the point I rarely listen to Busted Stuff, I only listen to the Lillywhite Sessions. It's frustrating to think where the band could have gone had they done more at the time with the Lillywhite Sessions (i.e. no Ballard and Everyday).
I think Stand Up will be known for it's live performances. Think of how they cut up some songs for the album cut like Hello Again. It's not even the same song without the killer drum solo and jam at the end.
To Halcyon, O.A.R. is great live. Hearing them last year in Columbus really got me into them. If you would like to listen to some live legal bootlegs, I'd be happy to hook you up over AIM or something, send me a PM and we can work it out.
That also goes for anyone that would like to get ahold of some live O.A.R. or DMB, send me a PM and I'll do my best to send it over AIM or point you to somewhere where you can find it.
