August 11 –SOMETHING MORE THAN FREE, Jason Isbell (2015)

imageA few years ago, it would have been an easy decision to see Jason Isbell and Lucero, two of my very favorites over the last ten years. But I’ve been tentative about their upcoming show. It’s a late-night Monday show. It’s at an SRO, and my back pain has returned. But on the drive from Tulsa today, I listened to Chris Shiflett’s podcast interview with Jason Isbell, and I was reminded that Isbell is at the top of his game. He’s the best working songwriter of the day — the guy is gold. More than 20 years ago I turned down a chance to see Nirvana because I was feeling old and it was on a Monday night. I’ve always regretted it. Not this time.
