The hits keep on coming

More concerts this week: on Tuesday, Chip Taylor and Carrie Rodriguez in Louisville, Kentucky. This was the first time I've gotten to see them, despite the fact that their CDs have rarely left my stereo in the year plus since I first heard them. Both of them have recently released solo albums (both excellent, natch) from which they played quite a few songs. And they played some of their duet songs too. And John Platania was there doing his inimitable thing. It was a memorable night, and I got Chip, Carrie, and John to sign my copy of one of their albums.

On Wednesday, Hem in Minneapolis, Minnesota. They played a lot of stuff from their great new album, Funnel Cloud. It was Daniela's first time seeing them, and GigglyGirl's first time hearing or seeing them. I think that GigglyGirl is one of the many new fans Hem made at the show.

Took a couple of quick video clips at the Chip and Carrie show....(hope these work!) They are snippets of two of the most famous songs Chip has written (though not necessarily the best): "Wild Thing" and "Angel of the Morning."

i think you failed to mention that the reason you were in minneapolis seeing hem was that you closed on your house the next morning!!! congratulations!
