REVIEW: That1Guy @ WOW Hall (Eugene, OR – – 2/11/09)
FYI… PHOTOS of the SHOW at the BOTTOM
Well, this was my 5th time seeing That1Guy and the Magic Pipe. He is a truly mesmerizing performer… the inclusion of the Magic Saw and Magic Boot are also great, but the true show is seeing Mr. 1Guy put a crazy go nuts university seminar on the Magic Pipe.
The opener was Seattle’s Flowmotion. I only caught their last 3-4 songs, but I liked them. Kinda of a more rock style jam band. The best part for me was their drummer and drummer/ percussionist combo. Two of the 3-4 songs I saw had some cool extended dual drum solos.
T1G came on right around 9:30. He seemed to play a very similar setlist to the time I saw him a year and a half ago at John Henry’s, but much more energetic… having a pretty packed house at a bigger venue on a Wednesday definitely didn’t hurt the energy. :)

- One(with card tricks)
- Jam Session with Flowmotion drummers (T1G’s credit card jam)
Great show… I left at about the 90 minute point (it’s been a long week for me so far). If I had to wager a guess, I bet he played “Mash” and/or “The Moon is Disgusting” and/or “Birds” as encores… but that’s only a guess.
And now for some news from That1Guy…
He’s re-issued his first album… the one before Songs in the Key of Beotch called Let’s Hear That1Guy (click pic to find out more):
New animated video for “Mash” made by some ausome aussies at Silo:6…
Oh, and T1G’s “Buttmachine” is the new Rick Roll… try it on your friends. *cough*
