If ever the band were to record a live album (which I know as well as anyone is a probable impossibility), then it should be on this tour. The set list is conducive to one and they sound really powerful live. It makes me sad that I will not have the opportunity to see them play again this year. Let me live vicariously through you, gentle reader! Go see this band!
Also, to all the blog-readers who said hello, it was a pleasure meeting you. One couldn't ask for a kinder, more devoted audience.
I hope you're all following the marvelous tour blog this year, otherwise you're missing out on things like the Shirley-Simms-penned "Hookers and Blow." Also, the lovely Ms. Emma Straub has started a secondary tour blog for The Paris Review, with the words:pictures ratio decidedly flipped. It's as entertaining as its partner, though, and can be found here.
