While Andrew gets set to dig into a Mike Gordon show tonight, I am getting absolutely pumped to see My Morning Jacket this evening at the Charlottesville Pavilion.
I feel like almost every other guy in the crew has gotten to see MMJ in 2008 except for me. Justin and the guys saw their huge show at SXSW in March. Then Sam caught them at Radio City Music Hall back in June. Now it’s finally my turn. And I couldn’t be more excited, because this summer has been totally weak on the concert front for me. I have been knee-deep in work and it has really been cutting into my free time for concerts and blog posts. Although the hard work has paid off, I am in dire need of a big bad rock show to combat my summer concert drought. I really can’t think of a better way to do so than by watching Jim James and the boys rip through some big-time rock ‘n’ roll at my hometown venue.
For a recent sample of the band live, go ahead and stream the show below from Radio City Music Hall in June:
