    Nah. I'd love to see them, but I'm not getting gouged to see them.

    How about you? Any luck? Not sure if anyone noticed but they added extra nights to all three cities (and they all sold out too of course).

    I caught them on tour for that album and it was such a fun show. Mike and Dave were having a ball, the whole band seemed to be. I have video of Dave's toddler niece going up on stage - with major hearing protection on, of course - and rocking out with the band for a bit.

    The days of getting gouged to see someone is long gone. I'm sure it would have been a fun gig.

    ^The one time I saw Don Cab, Che was belligerent and rather a bit of a dick. I think he might’ve been drunk, too.

    The show was good, though.

    He always was. Saw them three times. Best drunk drummer ever!

    This is actually apparently true. When Mike Banfield (second/non-tapping guitarist) quit Don Cab before the American Don album, he gave an interview (MOJO, I think?) where the subject came to the fore as one reason for his leaving. From what I understand, it basically started with Damon Che suffering from severe stagefright but realizing while drinking at rehearsals that he could block out all externals and still perform gracefully when taking in alcohol continuously - so he did accordingly during gigs.

    There was also a debacle concerning this when the band finally broke up, Ian Williams (first guitarist) moving on to Battles and Che himself having played in Bellini, an international math-rock "supergroup". Most of his collaborators seemed to opin that Che may have been a better drummer by drink, but an equally worse person from it.

    Arh, glorious freaks like Baker, Moon and Wyatt were stage-drunks as well.
