If you don't already know, Dispatch is performing a brand new song (Melon Bend) tonight on Jimmy Fallon. I've been listening to it all day. Be sure to check it out if you've been missing some Dispatch for a while now.
And Chris, I realize that, but they're the most popular band in independent music history with 110,000+ in attendance at their fairwell concert! I refuse to believe that NS is 100% Wiz cock suckers haha.
Guess who my new favourite member on Newschoolers, is. YOU ARE
God, I love Dispatch. I'm from Florida originally, and I don't know many people in Utah who jam to them (or any other jam bands for that matter). But they are playing a show in Red Rocks this summer, which I REALLY want to go see.
Side note: Did everyone pick up Dispatch's 4 album download over winter?
It's mostly people from the New England area, but people come from all over the world to see them. In 2007 they sold out Madison Square Garden 4 nights in a row. There were people there from the west coast and all over the world, including Australia and New Zealand. When I saw them 2 summers ago in D.C. the Prime Minister of Zimbabwe was right in front of me. They're world renowned.
I fucking love Dispatch. Fallon is on after Leno now, right? I usually just watch Conan and go to bed these days haha. I thought they broke up though? My friends took a road trip to their "final concert" or something a couple years ago. I must be out of the loop.
Don't get me wrong, I love State Radio, but the song they're performing tonight is really State Radioesque, which I'm not too happy about. I was hoping it would be a classic Dispatch style song. I do like the song, it's just not what I was hoping for. I would call it a hybrid between State Radio and Ween.
