Duhks and RRE both bands played their hearts out..
Missed GAMH Friday 4.20 show..went to see Jemimah Puddleduck in Mill Valley..but did catch Petaluma on Thursday night..
4.21..Duhks at end of their set..the Banjo player says..(Paraphasing)
>>..Tonight is last night of the 12 show run we have done with RRE..
They have treated us so well..band crew management were all terrific..
So..this being our last tune we would like to welcome RailRoad Earth to the stage..<<
Out walks all the guys in RRE..when was last time you seen that..??..The entire main act comin out before their set and playin with the opener..
It rocked..smiles so big you could tell the two bands had bonded..seereuslee..one of the finest things I have ever seen happen at a show..
Too bad there is no recordings to stream of that Duhk set ending Jam..
Found this video..altho not taken in Nor Cal..it sorta captures the mood of what both shows I saw were all about..

Todd said: We're from Jersey, so if you don't have a good time, we're going to kick your ass.
Well, something to that effect anyway. Didn't see no ass kicking going down, so I'm pretty sure everyone had a good time.
Jersey came to town and played some great fuckin music at the GAMH.
Nanc..Did you like Friday better tban Saturday or vica versa..??..
Petaluma was beautiful music...
Saturday was rockin esp set 2...
Liked them both for different reasons. Friday was about the songs, Saturday more about the jams.
