Kicking off this month’s edition of our look at the month in photographs are a couple shots from Halloween. The first one is an amusing photo of Bill Nershi of the String Cheese Incident, face to face with his pint size replica at the Hampton Coliseum on Hulaween. Apparently an enterprising photographer snuck the little guy up on stage, giving everyone a good laugh. You can check out tapes from the evening on the archive and livecheese.com

A review of the last few weeks wouldn’t be complete without a nod to Phish’s triumphant three night celebration in Atlantic City. Whether it was the Zeppelin and Little Feat covers, the outrageous costumes by the fans, the late night shows or all night parties at the Tropicana, a great time was had by all. Perhaps too good a time in one case.

Last Week’s Sauce features recordings of shows from the previous week. Thanks to prof_peabody – who had the lead singer of Los Campesinos roll up to his mic stand, lower it, and then sing it into it – for this week’s photo.
Artist & Title: Chris Barron – How Could You Want Him When You Know You Could Have Me
Date & Venue: 2009-11-12 The Mint, Los Angeles CA
Taper & Show Download: David Landsberger
It’s not very often I’ll repeat the same song on Last Week’s Sauce, but as I was doing my normal cruising around my download sites – I saw this solo acoustic show from the Spin Doctors’ Chris Barron. And I saw that he must have given a very lengthy introduction to the Spin Doctors tune I featured in September in this feature. Not only is the story mildly interesting, but the arrangement Barron plays is quite different than the one you are used to hearing. Barron next plays at Davinci’s Pub in Collegville, PA on December 4th with his band The Time Bandits.[audio:https://glidemag.wpengine.com/hiddentrack/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/barronsauce.mp3]
