    This evening we went to see Live From Here at Wolf Trap. You can listen here at livefromhere.org The show is online.
    What a great show.
    Not Punch Brothers, more like Chris Thile Presents.
    They had Adia Victoria as a guest. Very hot band. Sort of Norah Jones-ish with electronica/noise and a rockish rhythm section with twin saxes.
    And Guster, who played upbeat popish weezer-ish tunes.
    And Madison Cunningham, a singer songwriter.
    Thile played along with some of the songs and really added something.

    It was nerdvana for me.
    They did some Killer Covers:
    They opened with 'No Surprises' by Radiohead ( OK Computer ) with Madison Cunningham on vocals.
    'The Free Design' by Stereolab ( Cobra and Phases..)
    'Good Times Bad Times' by Led Zeppelin ( I )
    They closed with 'River of Orchids' by XTC ( Apple Venus Vol 1 )

    I can't wait to see them again.

    Nostalgia, you know, ain't what it used to be. Furthermore, they tells me, it never was.

    Antifogmatic was a very good album. Also loved their bluegrass Brandenburg Concerto....
