What better way to follow-up the Corea/Fleck show than with my buddies from Stick Men? I found it kind of humorous that I not only knew the band, but about half the people in the audience. If you had me told a decade ago that I would be on a first name basis with musicians of this caliber, I would have never believed you.
To summarize quickly, SM played about 2 hours, with a healthy dose of new material. Here's the setlist
After the show, I spent the better part of an hour talking to Markus, Tony and Pat. Unfortunately, this was their last evening in Austin, before heading to the West Coast. I have to say, Tony's touring schedule is insane. He'll be doing tours with Stick Men, the Crimson Projekct, more Peter Gabriel shows, then finally King Crimson this year.
I probably should have taken a few more pictures. (Oh well) Tony Levin did take a
selfie of the two of us, so hopefully he will post in the tour diary section of his site in the next few days.
All I can say is that I can't wait until August for my third TOAPP camp!
