ESPN's Baseball Tonight is commemorating the 100th anniversary of the writing of Take Me Out To the Ballgame. Here's the info from their site:
To commemorate the 100-year anniversary of baseball's most famous tune, "Baseball Tonight" had nine popular musical artists record a rendition of the song. Each version debuted on "Baseball Tonight" and then was posted below.
To get to the point, Chris Thile and the Punch Brothers did one of the recordings. And I'm not too biased when I say it's my favorite. ;) You can vote for the Punch Brothers here: http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/notebook?page=bbtn/takemeout

2:07PM - Sara's CD
She's all finished recording so, hopefully, it won't be too long of a wait!
Some of the songs will be Watkins Family Hour favorites, but with new arrangements. I heard one of the new ones last week and, of course, it's beautiful.

Has anyone heard about some rather risque pictures of Sean showing up in the internet? Its been on my mind all day!

Anyone ever been to the Mann Center before? I'm going to the show there this weekend and wondering what the set up is because I can't tell for sure. Is it all seated? I've got a ticket for "Orch B Row L" seats 107 and 106. So are they really seats or is it like a lot of general admission shows where the tickets say seats even though there aren't any?

Nickel Creek will be performing at the Ravinia Festival on August 10th here in Chicago. I do not believe this is on their web site and tickets can be ordered on the Ravinia site. I am very excited. My tickets were given to me a s a birthday present yesterday!

9:35PM - another question!
OH NOES. I was playing the "reasons why" DVD, and it keeps giving my WMP an error during the third refrain of the "When in Rome" video. Is this happening to anyone else? I've never had a DVD do this before with Windows Media Player.
Also, thanks for the replies about the Dylan song in "The Fox" on the CD - I didn't even think to look at the booklet insert. Silly me! :P
2:19AM - question about a song
On the new compilation cd (Reasons Why), there is a live version of The Fox from 2000. What is the song that they inserted into the middle, which Chris sings/speaks extremely quickly? I can't make out all the words, so I can't google it, but what I can hear sounds really amusing, and I love how it fit into the song. I'd like to hear the original to see how much it was changed, if at all. Or, maybe they made it up themselves for it?
At any rate, that's the best version of The Fox I've heard, and I'm so glad they put it and You Don't Have to Move That Mountain onto the cd. I remember the mountain song from when I first saw them in concert, I think, and I really enjoy this version. The bass around the middle is so much fun.

Does this really come out TOMORROW???
The cover is nice. It says it comes with a dvd. Does anyone know more details? The completeist in me wants it, but other than the dvd, the only thing I might not have is You Don't Have to Move that Mountain (depending on the version, cause I do have the Hear to There version). So I can't really see myself spending that much unless some of these are live?
This is their last album? I'm kind of upset. I with it would have at least been a live album.
And how did I not know it was coming out tomorrow? Did I miss an e-mail?

Ok, does anyone else think that we should make like a "Nickel Creek should not break up" myspace group? lol.. Or something along those lines.. cause I think we should do something to try and get their attention or something..

Chris' "How To Grow a Woman from the Ground" album came out today. Did anyone else pick it up? It's ridiculously great - I highly recommend that you do! (If you can find it. I went to a Barnes & Noble and they had already sold the one copy they supposedly ordered by 1:30 in the afternoon. What's the deal with that?)

I know this is a long shot but...
does anyone have spare tickets for the PA show or know where I might be able to get some? Due to some...confusion I had to put off buying them and now it seems that they are sold out and I am screwed. Any help would be appreciated.

8:52AM - news?
This was just posted as a bulletin from the group's MySpace page, reposted for those who might not use myspace:
After seven years of extensive touring in support of three records (seventeen years as a band), we've decided to take a break of indefinite length at the end of 2007 to preserve the environment we've sought so hard to create and to pursue other interests. It has been a pleasure to write, record, and perform for you through the years and we'd like to heartily thank you for your invaluable contribution to our musical lives.
(Sean, Sara, and Chris)"
Edit: It's also up on the front page of their website

Kisses and hugs to my fellow fans.

2:54PM - Speaking of Boise...
Are there any North Idaho kids going to NC's show @ The Festival At Sandpoint on the 10th? I'm going by myself ATM, and I wouldn't mind meeting up with some other Creeksters...

10:34AM - Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes!!!!!!
Nickel Creek is coming to Boise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was beginning to wonder if I would see them this year. I really wanted to see them in Bend or Sun Valley but the drive would have been to expensive this time around. Budget is too tight this summer. Damn tickets went on sale this morning and I just found out about it! How did that happen? I was working and changing stations cause of some lame ass EMO song and I heard a couple of notes and "Nickel Creek produced by Bravo BSP...blah blah blah"
I stopped writing the ticket I was righting and raised my hand in the air and yelled YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hope no one was watching. : p
August 12 baby. Holy crap that is soon. I might not be able to buy my ticket until the 9th. : (
They better not be sold out. Apparently the Sun Valley show got changed to Boise. Weird but I am not complaining.
Hahahah that is the same night as the Nickelback concert.....I hope people don't get confused. : P
I wanted to see Nickelback because of three awesome opening acts but I think Nickel Creek wins this one.

Wow. So I finally got to see our band perform live last night (with amazing front row seats that I was very lucky to get).
Everything I have ever heard (or guessed) about their live shows was dead on. Such great stage presence from Sara and Chris (Sean too, once it got darker and I think he got more comfortable). the friendly banter between themselves and the audience
Sara: "Hey Sean, that's a nice shirt."
Sean: "Is that all you can think to say? That's a nice shirt?"
Sara: "Well it is a nice shirt. It's got green and white on it."
Audience member: "And even the little aligator!" (well, it was actually an upside down blackbird, but whatever).
Chris: "When you're in a band this long, you run out of things to say to each other.
Go to hear songs I had always wanted to hear live. Only thing is, I wish I could find copies of some of their jam songs - the ones they nestle into other songs of theirs.
Also, has anyone else ever seen Sara break a fiddle string? They sure seemed convinced it was her first time breaking one on stage.
