    His newest album doesn't do much for me, but I'll def check him out barring any conflicts.

    one of my must sees...saw him at the Fonda last year, and left a little early due to being exhausted...he puts on a GREAT show for only being one man up there though...

    Agreed. He played Roky Erickson's Ice Cream Social for SXSW a few years back and just floored an audience that was roughly 60% bikers and 40% psych fans... Not his typical audience, I'd assume. Also caught a recent show at Antone's in Austin and once again, he killed. Stage presence improved dramatically between the two shows as well.

    It starts and ends well, but the middle is pretty boring imo. His live stuff seems great though, and a few of his songs are so beautiful ("Kids on the Run" is one of my favorite tracks of 2010)

    "Kids on the Run" was the best song about suburbia from last year. Sorry Arcade Fire. Need to hear it live!

    You do realize it's the Mojave that's right next to the Sahara, right?

    This was one of my biggest wants. So glad he is going to be there.

    Video I took at his show in Tucson:

    This is your video? Awesome! I was at this show... seen your video several times.

    People kept yelling song requests and I shouted "He's not a jukebox!"

    He got a kick out of that.

    No worries. One is better than nothing. I was going to take pictures, but I was super close and was too caught up in the moment.

    Did he have some sort of bass accompaniment, or is that just his guitar giving undertones?
