Seth updates the listeners with regard to this podcast's presence at SweetWater 420Fest which takes place the weekend after the release of this episode. Rob relates how he experienced the results of very positive and very negative staff behavior at two excellent recent shows he saw (Yo La Tengo, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe). In the minutes between, they chat with the drummer from The Motet, Shockra and Katharsis, Dave Watts. Dave talks about how a couple of years ago singer Jans Inger left The Motet while it was at the highest to-that-date level of popularity. Undaunted, the band would hit the ground running. Not only did they find a great singer and showman, but also an ideal lyricist named Lyle Divinsky. The band slaughtered with the new material at Red Rocks last year to such an extent that they officially released the performance. The Motet is now enjoying the highest levels of popularity of its career. We also learn of Dave's early Boston days playing in the band Shockra (who recently reunited). Shockra was a hugely popular band, and Dave talks of the "notorious" parties at their band house in Newton and how they ran in the same circles as did a young Phish (who once let him use their treasured mailing list) and G. Love. We hear of how he "got his butt kicked" at his first-ever jazz gig at the legendary Wally's Cafe. We learn about why he decided to move to Colorado, and the way he assimilated into the Colorado music world. He reveals that Mushroom Beer deserves an assist with regard to the initial formation of The Motet.
