And just like Mr Young, he has several different bands he will perform with. This short midwestern tour (which also went to Chicago and Minneapolis) included Doug McCombs (of Tortoise, Black Duck, and probably other animal-named groups) on bass guitar, Jaime Fennelly (Mind over Mirrors) on synthesizer and Areif Sless-Kitain (who's played with McCombs in Brokeback and has been a member of several Chicago bands I'm not familiar with) on drums. This was truly an all-star band and every person in the room was fortunate to watch it unfold in real time.
The violet lights were turned down low this evening. It was a totally rocking experience, but the iPhone is not really designed to document totally rocking experiences at Acme Records, so I apologize about the photos.
Please support these fine artists and decent people by going to their shows, buying multiple copies of their merchandise (your friends need the music -- why aren't you buying music for your friends?), and talking to them like they are real human beings after shows. If they don't mind.
