nick, how was Gregory Alan Isakov? I'm seeing him tonight.
Fucking magical. The combination of his band and the symphony was seamless and the acoustics of Benaroya Hall are incredible. He played a ton of stuff from his entire catalog too, not just the new album. Full house, standing ovation. I haven't been that emotional at a show since Neutral Milk Hotel.
Bizarre, it looks like the elviscostello.com announcement has changed. That White River Amphitheater date wasn't there this morning, and now it's missing the Red Rocks Amphitheater date. They're still missing a Portland gig. This tour would be perfect for Edgefield.
I've been delaying my Sasquatch lineup research to catch up on what the Recording Academy thinks is the best music of the year. Some of this is really good, but some of it... who nominates those awards again?
