My Morning Jacket: LIVE!

My Morning Jacket was SO GOOD! SO GOOD!

They played a closing show last night at Ottawa’s Bluesfest, but we started the night much earlier, arriving a few hours before the big event to check out some other bands. While we headed over to see the Dirt Bombs, who were great, with their two drummers, we were early enough to see some of the band before them, Trampled by Turtles. I was impressed by both and both were, as you’ll see when you click on the links and give them a listen (which you’re obliged to do), are very different. The former garage/punk/rock, the latter bluegrass. I dig!

Following these two sets we headed over to the main stage and, like I already said, it was SO GOOD! My Morning Jacket has a pretty extensive repertoire of music, including studio, live and compilation records. They played a great (and mind-blowing) set last night that covered a range of music from multiple albums. I really appreciated this – some new some old, all fantastic. It was a show, a production, that I think everyone in the audience really enjoyed.

Fingers crossed that all of the above make their way back to Canada in the near future!
