Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

M Ward & Jim James at SXSW 2008

A lot has happened over the past week, and as a result I have a backlog of stuff I'd like to talk about here. But in the meantime, here's this: I have been listening non-stop to the live recording of M Ward and Jim James (from My Morning Jacket) performing at South by Southwest 08. They played a cooperative set - each taking turns playing their own songs and backing the other. The music was beautiful, the lyrics almost tangible (Jim James' in particular), and from what I've heard, the venue - St. David's Church - created an intimacy that "basically mandated silence from the audience" (said livemusicblog.com). Wish I could have been there. For your vicarious-living pleasure (and mine too) here's a video of some samples from their show. Enjoy.
