I was stung today on palm, right below index finger on left hand. The bugger must of been waiting on exit door at convenience store. I exited and felt pain, saw it on ground. It will not be harming anyone else!
BTW - it hurts!!!

The band is killer live. Will Kennedy is an awesome and one of my favorite jazz drummers.

Sorry about your hand. Take some allergy drugs (antihistamines) and hopefully the swelling will go away soon.

OH MY GOD!

I felt physical pain when you said that. little bitches are FUCKS! My town of Fairbanks, Alaska had Yellowjacket infestations every few years and I would get stung every so often. Unlike bees, little shits seek you out. My family had a "yellowjacket killing contest" one year when I was a kid, all of us devising methods of killing the little fuckers. My mom won with an old Eskimo oil trap (milk jug, meat screwer, oil in the bottom, piece of fish). My dad broke my mom's hair drier trying to build a "bee o-matic" to suck up the jackets. She was not happy.

I had an interesting childhood.

Saw them open for Larry Carlton in the late 80s at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Tampa. Excellent show.

Hey, make sure your yellowjacket swelling is just due to the poison, and not infection. Those little guys often play in the trash; when they do, the filth and germs may be more dangerous than the allergens.

Oh, that's not the news I wanted to hear!

I got stung on the forehead once, just above my eye. Half my face swelled up. Fortunately it subsided after a couple hours.

One of those guys got me on the hand as well, it was hanging out under my door handle.

It was either one of these or a paper wasp (can't recall) that got me at a gig...outdoor resort, we were walking around before the show and *blam* right on my right index finger. Started swelling up, the resort people had something to put on it that helped a lot. Made it pretty hard to play though.

I got it on the lip once, playing an outside gig. Went on break, took a sip of my beer, and he was inside the bottle.

Edit: I can’t say for sure it was a Yellowjacket. Could have been a wasp. It wasn’t a bee.

Y'know, I knew this was going to be about both the band and the insect before I even clicked on it

Those buggers usually make nests in the ground. I've gotten nailed several times cutting grass or working in the yard.

The worst adventure was the time yellow jackets built a nest behind the vinyl siding close to the front door of our house. Bug spray wasn't working so I tried jamming a cotton ball soaked with insecticide into the hole. Did that a few times but they managed to remove anything placed inside. I was afraid I'd have to call an exterminator until one afternoon I came across some wasp spray at the local hardware store with a little plastic straw attached to the can (like WD40). Brought that home and flooded the nest.

Perfect solution... hallelujah! w00t

The only downside was the horrible dead bug odor that came in around the indoor light switch. Smelled like rotten potatoes for a few days

This is post-Haslip but still very cool. I like them better live than in studio.

Truthfully, it wasn't apparent that he would even make a career out of it back then. I recall that he spent a good part of senior year with his leg in a big cast, busted it playing school football. Maybe that's what made up his mind, lol.

I once backed a tractor into a barn lean-to and disturbed a yellow jacket nest. They came boiling out of the nest and made for me, chasing and stinging me for 100 yards. I hadn't moved that fast in 20 years, but it still wasn't fast enough to outrun them. I probably had 20 stings and it hurt like a mother.

A yellowjacket is a kind of wasp with bee-like coloring. (Indeed, according to Wikipedia, outside of the USA they're just called "wasps.")

You must know a lot of the same people I do, as I know a bunch that knows Jimmy from way back. I never met him myself, though.
