Wow. I was at a FANTASTIC show last night. This was an absolute dream show for me. This was a show where you are not only walking out of the show in awe, thinking "Now THAT is music!" but as you exit the building you actually hear and see other people joyfully shouting out the same thing while skipping around like an excited child who just entered through the gates of Disneyland!
I went to see a group of musicians I adore in Fiction Family (Jon Foreman & Sean Watkins) and ended up getting not only Fiction Family songs, but I got solo Jon Foreman, Nickel Creek, Radiohead, an insane, very technical bluegrass interlude, Sara Watkins, Arcade Fire, and SO much more!
A BIG-TIME highlight for me was that Sean Watkins sister, Sara Watkins, played the entire show! In case you didn't know, her and Sean are 2/3rds of one of my all time favorite groups of musicians, Nickel Creek. The music they Nickel Creek AND each member plays individually is just stunning. I can't even describe how much of a treat it was to be able to see all of these people playing music together at such an inimate venue.
