also if steve martin hasnt done stand up in decades so i dont think he will do comedy. he says in his book that he really disliked doing it. its a shame cause hes one of the best stand ups of all time. his jokes also have incredible staying power as in my opinion a lot of comedy from the 70s isnt that funny by todays standards.
But if it is a misspelling of a small stringed instrument, Hot Buttered Rum has a song called "Amanda Lynn" as in 'a mandolin.' They were also originally acoustic (simpletons) and didn't have drums but now they use electricity and percussion.
They're playing Wakarusa and don't have a conflicting date with Roo the next weekend. They also have a new album coming out soon.
i just caught up and feel bad posting that cause of the whole mini-liar being banjo, mandolin, or ukelele. i think that banjo is wrong. while it is physcially smaller then a guitar its got more strings. a ukelele or mandolin is smaller then a guitar in everyway (little, not as long, less strings). i will go crazy if eddie vedder is coming. are there any candidates who play mandolin?
how many strings do you think a mandolin has? where are you getting your information from on instruments? the original banjo only had 4 strings, and the modern banjo has the 5th thumb string added. a guitar has 6 strings, a mandolin has 8, the Uke 4.

With us getting pointed toward a mandolin and Punch being one of the original simpletons, I'm definitely leaning more toward some sort of Chris Thile project. Probably Punch Brothers, but hopefully Goat Rodeo.
hello peeps... here is my guess if you look up lyre on Wikipedia there is a link for a Cretan lyra... wiki says this is a "small lyra" and Georgia Dagaki is known for playing the instrument at the current shows of singer Eric Burdon and the Animals. That's all I got so far, I may be way off but I would love to see some "house of the rising sun" at roo.

I think that this clue has to do with either a uke or mandolin, i don't think a banjo would be considered mini. Plus i don't think this clue has been solved yet since Gary didn't say he has seen an answer but retweeted help for the clue. just my opinion.
I'm still guessing it has to do with a mandolin or ukulele. IMO, I wouldn't refer to a banjo as "mini"
Ukulele: Eddie Vedder, Dent May & His Magnificient Ukulele, Beirut, Julia Nunes, Jake Shimabukuro Mandolin: David Grisman, Chris Thile (Punch Brothers, Goat Rodeo), Sam Bush, Mike Marshall, Railroad Earth, Trampled by Turtles, John Paul Jones (to a much lesser extent), Jack White (to a much lesser extent)
