You missed it, didn’t you?
Jim James and the rest of the My Morning Jacket crew rocking out on Conan. Don’t worry, friend – I’ve got your back.
This is what will be blowing my mind when I see them in Vegas this September.
Who else am I catching in concert this summer? The prestigious Red Butte Garden Amphitheater is playing host to one of America’s best bands ever, Wilco. Here’s Jeff and the gang performing a couple awesome, folky new songs on Saturday Night Live. As you’ll see, Wilco is one of those unique bands that would fit in on A Prairie Home Companion (in fact, they have), MTV, CMTV (Country Music TV, for the luckily uninitiated), or most importantly, our blog’s music player. I feel comfortable recommending them to my grandpa, my dad, my friends, co-workers, and young men in my ward. Here, take a look-see:
In other music news, the lineup for SLC’s 2008 Twilight Concert Series was recently announced. If my Thursday evening softball games don’t conflict, you know where I’ll be. However, I will be missing any softball game to go see Andrew Bird. I happen to know a couple other Ivins Ward socialites that should also be in attendance that evening (that means you, Leggats & Hartles…). But all should attend – numerous are those who frequent this blog that can bear solemn witness to the truthfulness and musical veracity of Brother Andrew Bird.
I’d now like to open up the rest of the comments section for any and all who feel moved to bear their testimony of the musical stylings of My Morning Jacket, Wilco, Andrew Bird, or any other musician of good report or praise-worthy.
