Your Morning Rock – May 16th, 2008 Friday, May 16, 2008

Posted by Jerkwheat in jerkwheat, Your Morning Rock.

I’m always down with providing some Matt Nathanson love in these parts…

Anyhoo, we’ve been asked to relay a message to you kids, as Matt (of whom we are HUGE fans) is doing an online concert on the 27th of this month at 10p EST. You can sign up for it here.

Have a good weekend, we’ll see you on Monday!

I just had maybe the best 2 day span of shows in my life (outside of Coachella a couple of years ago). Kathleen Edwards was simply awesome. Was it the most electrifying show I’ve ever been to? No, probably not, but it was still fantastic. A few notes from the night:
1) She’s even hotter in person
2) She’s going to be on Leno tonigh
3) I was wrong, “Goodnight, California” was the 2nd to last song during the encore. They closed with ” Back To Me”
4) Apparently, her guitarist Colin is on Bryan Adam’s new album. This came up because Bryan was to be playing the same venue in a few days (yes, I had tickets), but Colin was talking to Bryan earlier today and I guess he’s doing American Idol instead. All of which led into her doing “Summer of ’69” and the crowd getting quite into it
5) Speaking of AI, it hit me that I really would have liked to have seen Brooke White do one of Kathleen’s songs

Rilo Kiley was incredible. I was a little skeptical going in but I was more than satisfied. Jenny’s voice and range was amazing and she’s ridiculously hot. Blake Sennett was great on the guitar. They played a solid mix of songs from Portions for Foxes and Under the Blacklight which was nice; good that Under the Blacklight didn’t dominate the show. Plus, it was cool seeing them play in my actual sleepy hometown (of 15K) where I was raised and not just San Diego itself.

It’s ok to be jealous.

I’m only jealous of Kathleen – I’m staring at Jenny in 3 weeks

Sadly, I did not bring my camera to either show. I felt dumb about that too on Wednesday and not sure why I forgot it again yesterday.
