I went to see Iron & Wine back in October as part of a trip to Eugene I took with my lovely girlfriend, Rachel. It was absolutely necessary, you see, since this Iron & Wine tour was not making a stop in Seattle. Not only that but the show in Eugene was to be a solo act and thank the Bee Jee for that. Not really in the mood for one of his reggae sessions. I need my folk clean and original. None of that Jah Love.
I even made some artwork for this one for a different project. It came out pretty good so here it is. Boom. You’re lookin’ at it. Click the image for a high res version you can print off all on your own! Wahoo!
All in all a good show and a pretty good recording with which to shove that point into all of your faces. Boom. You’re hearin’ it.
And even before that, there was another time that I slam dunked on this scene like a hellacoptah. There surely was a time in May of last year when I saw Subtle drop a lyrical bomb on The Nectar Lounge down in Fremont. And for certain it was the man with the plan and the microphone stand.
Supporting acts were Efterklang and Slaraffenland from somewhere in Europe that is probably cold as hell right now. Finland? Sweden? I don’t know. One of those ones. If there is interest I’ll put up the Slaraffenland set.
