Troubadour in October

Default

Flying west from NY for one night to catch Blitzen Trapper in LA. Some things just have to be done! Opening for DBT at Terminal 5 last March barely whet my appetite.

Whoa. Nice. Such a great place to play - I think you'll dig it.

Michael - any gossip on what 2015 holds for BT ?

10 days until I get on that flight from New York to LA for Blitzen Trapper at the Troubadour. Wondering if some underplayed songs will get sprinkled in the mix. Drive on Up? The All Girl Team?

Again, VERY excited about October 3rd and the Troubadour.  It's one of my favorite venues in Los Angeles, and very intimate.  If Swahoogie approves, I plan to stand pressed against the stage, take lots of pictures, and sing along to every song I can (no Ryan Adams covers please, however a Springsteen cover would be most welcome) sing!

I applaud your gusto! We will play many but not all of these songs and we will not play a Ryan Adams cover, or the Boss for that matter. But we do have some tasty new covers that we are enjoying and hope you do too. Seriously looking forward to the Troub!

Awesome Michael, thank you!  I'm a brand new fan, thanks to my pal Swahoogie.  I used to make fun of his love for all things TRAPPER, yet I was an ignorant fool back then (Winter 2012 to Spring 2014).  Now, I can't get enough of your music, really.  Thank you!

...on a minor note, I would love to change my profile picture, yet the site keeps crashing with an error message.  However, since the "Destroyer of The Void" album is a favorite of mine (and the pic resembles the album cover) I like the current pic just the same.

Thanks for the heads up about the profile picture site crashing problem. I'll take a look when I have a minute.

 24 hours until I'm getting on the plane for LA from JFK. Troubadour here we come!  I am getting fired up.

trying hard not to sing along to BT mix pumping through my headphones on the flight. Jet Blue has these kick ass brand new planes. Very comfortable. Great music. Beautiful woman with fantastic legs sitting next to me. Blitzen Trapper concert tonight in the heat of LA. Sometimes life goes your way and you just have to say thanks and suck the juice out of every second.

And special thanks to whoever posted Nasville show from Bluebird September 23, 2013. It's making this flight extra special. Except I keep turning around every time some guy in my left earphone starts cheering and letting out some "Hell yeahs"
