Hey boys of Mr. Blotto:

I had an idea today for a really neat way of you guys spreading your favorite show to all of us fans once and a while.

I know you guys have the Bootleg Series every now and again and you have "Just Did It" series as well, but I got to thinking (grovel begins):

We all love having your music up on the Live Music Archive (LMA) and what if you guys mixed down some of your favorite new/old shows and posted them up on the site for all of us to enjoy every now and again?

I think it would be very special and you don't even have to host the show on the server that serves up the main Mr. Blotto site as the LMA has plenty of bandwidth to serve up plenty of shows.

If you guys would like to do it yourselves and post them up on the LMA that would be great, but if not I would be happy to convert any shows from .wav to .flac/.shn and post them up there if you guys would be willing to send CD's of your favorite shows to me.

Now you may be thinking, we could sell our favorite and make a few bucks and you're right, but why not, like I said, every once and a while post a great rockin' Blotto show for free on the Archives and the source would be from the official band tapes. I think it would be great and I'm sure many on this message board would agree.

Again, just my $.02.

The world needs more Mr. Blotto and I for one would be happy to help distribute more of your fine music for all the world to enjoy (I remember once reading on this message board a gentlemen from Switzerland was diggin' on Blotto...And you know where he found out about you guys, the Live Music Archive...grovel end).

Peace,
Jon Mohr

Can anyone tell me the song list of "Cabbages and Kings"? I'm a fairly new Blotto fan and I was trying to decide which CD I should get! Any suggestions would be GREAT! I love the song 1977!

Well I tried...

To Whom It May Concern:

First and foremost, let me thank you guys for putting on Vegoose. I am very much looking forward to the weekend, as not only will it be a great time with my favorite bands on hand, but you couldnít have coordinated it better because that is the same weekend of my bachelor party!

Now Iím not sure who I would request this to, but there is a band that plays in and around the Chicago land area that would be a magnificent addition to the Vegoose lineup. The name of the band is Mr. Blotto and they have been doing their thing for close to 15 years now and are fantastic musicians. I feel they would be an excellent addition to the music festival as they recently received rave reviews at the 10 Lakes Festival in Minnesota a few weeks back. They play a wide range of genres and have 4 studio albums to their credit, which are all wonderful pieces of music.

Their website is: http://www.mrblotto.com

Their music can be sampled at the following address:
http://www.archive.org/audio/etreelisting-browse.php?collection=etree&mode=mp3&cat=Mr.%20Blotto

They have no idea I am sending this email to Superfly, but I figured I would at least take a shot. I know the audience would really love to experience this band as I have many times in the past.

Thank you for your time,
Jon Mohr


-----------
Response from Superfly Productions:

Thanks Jon. At this time we are unable to fit them into the Vegas lineup but we will check out the band and keep them in mind for future opportunities.

Take care,

Paul

I am putting together a DVD of the Saturday sets from this year's Blottopia, like I did last year. I saw a lot of people with cameras, so I thought it would be nice to include your images in the DVD, either incorporated into the music, or as a bonus slideshow kind of thing. The DVD will feature great Kelly Casey audio again. Please contact me by responding to this post if you are interested. I will be sure to get you a copy of the DVD for the use of your pix.

Anybody know what the address of this show is, or what the cross streets are? Tried to find on numerous web sites, Map Quest, MSN maps & got jack diddly! Would hate to be driving aimlessly through the west suburbs trying to locate while putting on the preshow buzz if ya know what I mean! Thanks!

That was so cool when the bomber did the fly-by during Over and Back. He flew OVER, then came BACK around. It was right during one of Paul's cool vocal parts in the song. They may have even added an extra part to the song while the bomber was turning around.

it was a hot sunday mornin, middle of july
the choir was a singin bout the sweet BYE AND BYE
everyone was a swayin, and sweatin in the heat
we all bowed our heads down as the preacher took his seat.
my sister and my brother stood next to my mother
in the quiet at the close of the verse
that's when daddy cut the big one
at the horn lake tennissippi missionary baptist church
my sister rolled her eyes back, my brother bit his lip
my cousin just behind us whispered, "hey, who let one rip?"
i stuck my face in my shirt sleeve, stared down at my shoes
lord, you could hear a pin drop, as we stood there in the pew
heads werea turnin, eyes werea burnin
mamma stuck her nose in her purse, after daddy cut the big one
at the horn lake tennissippi missionary baptist church.
he cut the big one, it was a stinker
then he broke the silence with a snicker
us kids started laughin til i thought we was all ganna burst
after daddy cut the big one
at the horn lake tennissippi missionary baptist church
he said, "the devil made me do it"
mamma said it was the liverworst
and that's why daddy cut the big one
at the horn lake tennissippi missionary baptist church
