Hello Off The Grid Listeners!
This is Ian checking in for the first time on our cool new blog.
Hopefully this becomes a cool place for you to check out all things Off The Grid and share some sweet music and other random awesomeness.
1. SET LIST
M. Ward - Primitive Girl
M. Ward - Sweetheart (Featuring Zooey Deschanel)
Beck - Ghettochip Malfunction (Hell Yes)
Todd Snider - In Between Jobs
Tom Williams and The Boat - Teenage Blood
Neal Casal - Need Shelter
Calexico and Iron and Wine - He Lays In Reins
Rocky Votolato - Little Spring
The Messengers - That's The Way A Woman Is
Glen Hansard - Love Don't Leave Me Waiting
We sort of threw this show together with the idea of promoting the new Todd Snider record. It just so happened both Micah and myself picked out two different tracks off M. Ward's new record A Wasteland Companion. So the show became more of a conversation of M. Ward's ever expanding catalog.
Of course we also featured the aforementioned Todd Snider with the great tune "In Between Jobs." We had to play a highly edited version of this song. The non edited (read explicit) version is definitely worth checking out.
Other highlights include the virtually unknown anti-folk (what?!) band Tom Williams and The Boat and a super fast blast from the past by The Messengers. For those of you keeping score "That's The Way A Woman Is" clocks in under two minutes!
2. CREED AND NICKELBACK
Check out this article.
It is written by the incomparable Chuck Klosterman and attempts to deconstruct the general hatred of these two insanely popular rock bands. Their popularity is quite literally insane, right?
3. ADELE VS. FUSION COVER BAND
