My Morning Jacket
September 24th, 2008
The Joint – Las Vegas, NV
Who’s in, who’s out?
Here’s a camera picture from my vantage point the last time I saw these guys, when they were in SLC (mind you, I had to lean waaaay back just to fit him in the frame. Front row will do that to you.):
Oh, you’re not sure if you’re in to MMJ, you say? Behold these thigh-melting clips:
Feast your eyes upon MMJ on Conan O’Brien. This is, without a doubt, the most incredible late night musical performance in the history of television. You can even tell that Conan’s socks were knocked on their butts.
For a local spin, here’s MMJ on Letterman playing “Gideon” with the Boston Pops, lead by Keith Lockhart. Hey, you can actually see Jim James’ face!
One of Amber’s new favorites, “Mahgeeta.” (Code word for “my guitar.”) Hold on to your knickers at the 5 minute mark.
YouTube just doesn’t do these guys justice, but if you’re into music that really doesn’t suck, consider making the Vegas trip with us.
Believe me, My Morning Jacket is for you. If it’s for Amber, it’s for anyone.
