A little video I took last night on my phone of The Tallest Man On Earth covering Bob Dylan’s “I’ll Keep It With Mine” at Lincoln Hall in Chicago. He also covered another Bob Dylan song (“The Man In Me”) with Nathaniel Rateliff and his band which I also recorded but will post later as I have not uploaded it yet.
Hello all you Crazy Dreamers….haven’t posted in a while as I am pretty much married to my job lately but I have not forgotten about my music buddies here on YCD!! Thought I’d pop my head in and say a few words.
My dream of seeing Jason Molina live was realized last Monday as I got to see Magnolia Electric Co. at the Abbey Pub here in Chicago. I pretty much think Molina is a genius so I was super excited for this show and MECO did not let me down. I was almost in tears when they played “In The Human World” as that is my #1 played song in my iTunes and favorite Mag Elec. song ever. This show will definitely go down as the best I’ve seen all year.
For those of you not familiar with Molina, he recorded under Songs:Ohia with a rotating cast of musicians until 2003 in which he announced on tour the name change to Magnolia Electric Co. You can find his discography here.

I went and saw JJ Grey & Mofro last night in Chicago at the “Taste of Lincoln Fest” to get a little taste of some bluesy southern soul. Best $10 I ever spent (for the fest admission fee.)
I can not say enough how much I love love love LOVE these guys and god damn do they put on an amazing show. Incredible. Stunning. Gave me chills at some points they were so pee-in-your-pants-good. I saw them last year at the House of Blues but this show far surpassed that one for me by miles. I was simply enthralled the whole night. You either had to be deaf or have no rhythm to not groove and dance to JJ. I know I was shakin’ my tail feather most of the night! *shake shake*
Their album “Country Ghetto” was one of my favorites albums of last year. Definately in my top 3 of 2007. If you do not have this CD, I highly recommend that you run right out and purchase it or download it! The whole album is just fantastic.
I’ve very excited for their new release “Orange Blossoms” due out August 26th. You can pre order it: here
One of the highlight of the night was getting to hear one of their new songs off the new album called “Everything Bad is Good”. Upbeat number….I just loved it. Here is a youtube video of the new song (although not from the Chicago performance)…oooh sing it JJ!
