Since it’s a bit past the official start of summer, I figured it was time to share the Spring 2015 playlist. Check it out here.
It’s sort of embarrassing I even keep this thing running no more often than I’ve had time to update in the last 18 months or so. Or, perhaps how little I’ve had worth writing about for public consumption. But, perhaps things are looking up these days and I’ll have time/ desire to update more often.
Well then, lets go!
Keeping with the theme, I figured it was time for a music update…or a wee one, any way. I’ve actually had time to see 4 shows in the last month. Yes month, not week.
Lucinda Williams. I’m so in love with her new record. We dodged thunderstorms all night. In fact, I almost didn’t even go to the show because the forcast and radar indicated pretty much a 100% chance of rain. And rain and thunder and storm it did…everywhere except the back yard of Grinders. Great show.
Anderson East. Holy shit this kid has a voice. Weeknight KC crowd was a bit of a disappointment, but he was not. Once he learns to manage a crowd like that, he might be unstoppable.
HaHaTonka – Back at Knuckleheads but on the weekend. I’ve been dying to see this band live and they did not disappoint. Allegedly working on a new record to come out later this year.
Delta Spirit – Took half a vacay day and coughed up the dough for a hotel room for this week night show down in KC. Best money I’ve spent all year. This was sort of an acoustic-y show with really cool lights and an abundance of special guests including Ian from Deer Tick, Johny Fritz and Robert Ellis.
