It was a great set list, feel very blessed (once again) to live in Portland.

Here is the poster for the event:

I hope he doesn't take too much time working on the new album.  The pitchfork article makes it seem like he is taking his time....
Must be enjoying the new kitchen my friend designed for him and his lady  ;)


Nice!   Did it have a built in Creme Brulee torch?

Is his lady friend anyone famous?   Or just the luckiest gal west of the Mississippi?
I'm digging, digging deep in myself, but who needs a shovel when you have a little boy like mine.

I think she is just a regular gal.  My friend mainly worked with her and said she was super nice.  She had a few interactions with him, but mainly felt like she kept putting her foot in her mouth....

I personally don't know anyone who attended last night's show.  But Vespa (and baby MMJ) will be there tonight.

I saw M. Ward play last night in Nashville. I've loved his music for ages, but seeing him live (this was my first time) just changed everything for me. Very pleasant show - and I'm not trying to minimize my enjoyment by calling it pleasant. But his music/voice tends to just put me in a dreamlike state - almost a haze of pleasantness. I wish he got more attention. Alan Jackson had a free concert last night on Music Row and the people were just streaming everywhere, but for the 1000 or so people who saw M.Ward, they got to see true talent. Plus I really don''t enjoy pop country music. I'm not really being coherent today; four hours of sleep will do that to you. Hopefully, I got my point across.

I think Conor Oberst once describe M's music as "musical xanex"   So very true.

Oh, that's such an apt description. I like that.

Really excited to see Montgomary in a few hours in golden gate park!

I've seen that but haven't listened to it yet.

I used to have a crush on Zooey until I watched that terrible show she is in.  As great as her singing voice is, her talking voice is equally bad.  Maybe it's just that show, though.  I don't remember it bothering me on Elf.

I got it a couple of weeks ago on vinyl pre-order.  Its nice, the kids love it, I get me some M. Ward.  According to an email I got yesterday, they may be (erroneously) sending me a second copy.  If so, I'll make it available here, maybe a holiday raffle.

Close enough!

The third episode was a bit annoying but otherwise I thought it was pretty damn funny.

In fairness, I only watched the first and third episodes.  The first I thought had some funny parts, but was still kind of indifferent on it.  After the third, I was not a fan.

hey John-  do you know if that date was part of a new tour or just a random one-off?   I went looking for other tour dates / confirmation .... would love to catch him again and may consider making the trip to Portland... I did see that show on the State Theatre website but no other dates anywhere else; although, my google skills are poor.   I was hoping for a Boston date before / after.

i'm dying for a new tour, too...think bold99 is hitting that show too--
but come on...there's nothing sexy about poop. Nothing.  -bbill
