    I went to this last year. Note that the beer is sold out of coolers by enterprising citizens in the woods directly west of the event.

    also, if anyone cares, Shana Morrison is Van Morrison's daughter, and Teddy Thompson is Richard and Linda Thompson's son.

    John beat me to the punch with Bill Callahan and Tom with Teddy Thomson. Isn't Jason Isbell the guy who left Drive-By Truckers or am I thinking of someone else? If it is, I heard that record the other day. It's not bad. A little heavy-handed in parts, but not bad.

    Also, this really is a pretty stellar lineup. I thinks I might drive over.

    You should drive about twelve hours north on the way. It'd be really convenient. I swear.





    (For me).

    I fell asleep with the window open, so I woke up to close it. And thaw out a little bit. And change the music.
