Wilco‘s coming to town playing a live outdoor under the stars performance at Red Butte Gardens. I should mention, the show is sold out! In fact, the show sold out before tix went on sale for the public. Ahhh… summer.
Only a few songwriters have moved me to tears with their voice, Hope Sandoval of Mazzy Star, Emmylou Harris, and Neko Case. Years ago (maybe decades) began subscribing to No Depression, a quarterly magazine that highlighted the alt-country scene. Based on a review I read in the mag, I picked up Neko’s 2002 release Blacklisted. The album pushes her unique storytelling & her phenomenal vocals to the forefront. To me, Blacklisted is flawless. While I was working at the music store I pimped this album to coworkers, to my regular customers, basically I wanted as many people I could find to be exposed this brilliant piece of work.
I’ve lost count how many times I’ve seen her live but one thing is for sure, I will never grow tired of seeing this beautiful woman, never.
