Sunday, April 23, 2006
With a 90% chance of strong storms lingering, I didn't know whether to risk driving 4 hours to see Clap Your Hands Say Yeah! and My Morning Jacket. I finally decided that the clouds would part and the show will go on, and that it did. It did not even rain once. God loves Jim James. I awoke the next morning to find that my neck was so sore I could not even lift it. I don't see how he (Jim) does it.
PS HE ALSO GREW HIS HAIR BACK OUT.........
MY MORNING JACKET
(Clap Your Hands is in next post below)
It was awesome. Between Dondante and Run Thru, I felt like I was at a Pink Floyd show. Here is the Setlist.
The Venue and Crowd:Rites of Spring Festival Nashville, TN
Great venue. You could bring in a cooler. Sound was great.
The Crowd was not bad. Most people knew a lot of songs. Pretty impressed. Everyone was rocking out.
CHYSY was amazing. They sounded pretty good, but the sound quality was a little lacking. I thought maybe it was just the venue until the Jacket came out. They sounded perfect as usual. Like one of my buddies quoted, "They play every song like it is an encore." Here is some videos of jamming out on "Off the Record"
and "Wordless Chorus" Be sure to wait for the Chorus...pretty cool
Here is the end of the Song where he meats out....
CHYSY was amazing. They sounded pretty good, but the sound quality was a little lacking. I thought maybe it was just the venue until the Jacket came out.
Here is a short clip of "Over and Over Again (Lost and Found)"
They played basically everything. Here is the Setlist
Let the Cool Goddness Rust Away
In This Home On Ice
(not sure) I think it was "Graceful Retreat"
Is This Love?
The Skin of My Yellow Country Teeth
Details of the War
Gimme Some Salt
Over and Over Again
Satan Said Dance

In Nashville at the Ryman Auditorium, Jeff Tweedy played an acoustic unplugged version of "Acuff Rose." If you listen real closely, you can hear my buddy Shuff's phone playing "The Bear" by My Morning Jacket. He had no idea it was his phone.
Sufjan will be releasing an album with outtakes from his Illinoise. The Avalanche: Outtakes and Extras from the Illinois Album will be coming out July 25th and will include things such as three versions of Chicago. Apparently it was going to originally be a double album.

Although the The Black Keys have left Fat Possum here in Oxford, they will release Chulahoma: The Songs of Junior Kimbrough as their last release on the label. The album will include re-works of Junior Kimbrough.

1. Keep Your Hands Off Her
2. Have Mercy On Me
3. Work Me
4. Meet Me In The City
5. Nobody But You
