(or as David phrased it "Wes is painting the cover to our new album as we speak...Uh, actually he's singing the next song as we speak, but you get the idea.") The drummer du jour was someone named "Snoopy". Finally, David announced that they would be playing a "secret" show in Richmond Tuesday night (04/07/98) at Moondance. For those of you who've never been to Moondance, it is a very small club (under 100 people).
Quote of the evening: David after Joan gave a powerful performance on All By Myself (?): "Shit. Goddamn...Well that's all you can say after song like that."

1. new song "Around the World"? (VERY awesome song, GREAT guitar solo at the end. I'm hoping this one will be their first single on the album...)
2. new song "Seven days"? Joan Osborne sang backup on this one, also a great song (of course)
3. Possibly a Joan Osborne song (I'm not familiar with her stuff) she sang lead "feel so good"?
4. new song (they actually did this one at a previous Barn Dance) "Hold of Myself"? Johnny sang lead on this one. good song, country tinged.
5. I See the Light (awesome rendition w/Joan singing backup)
6. another Joan Osborne lead song... Johnny with some awesome guitar work "Help me"?
7. Mr. Wrong (Joan singing backup)
8. Shiner Song (Wes Freed sang lead)
9. the song the did from the Clash tribute album alas I know nothing about the Clash... I think it had a line about going for a drive in it a lot. Johnny ripped the best guitar solo I've ever seen at the end of this one. really great.
10. Lonesome Johnny Blues
11. encore -- Sweet Thistle Pie
Other notes... god only knows who the drummer was... The guys seemed to be really in to the music. Dave was smiling and cool. He looks really good... The sound was REALLY great. This was the best sound I've ever heard at a live show. I mean I could understand EVERY word Dave sang. Too bad Alley Katz is so tiny or it'd be a great place to see Cracker at a normal show (the place was packed with Cracker fans even though the show was hardly publicized...) Dave said that Wes was doing the cover art for the new album. He might have been joking but I think he was serious and only joking about when he would actually get started on it....
