I just saw this news in the LMB inbox and was rather impressed:

2008 already looked like it would be a big year for My Morning Jacket, but I can’t say I thought they’d already be playing Garden on New Year’s Eve. It looks like all the buzz around their latest release, Evil Urges, has really started to pay off.

If you’re a frequent LMB reader, you have probably noticed our love of MMJ for a while now. Since so many of the LMB contributors seem to dig this band, lately it has become a bit of an inside joke around these parts. Hey, almost a week had gone by without a My Morning Jacket post here at LMB. I guess we just couldn’t let that happen.
