January 13th, Chris Larsen and Melanie Glover's living room
David Bazan (Pedro the Lion, Headphones) played in my friend's house. It was pretty incredible. If you ever get the chance to see anyone do a completely acoustic show check it out. You really get to see what someone is made of when they don't have a microphone. Even if it is not your type of music, it is hard to hate on David Bazan. It is all so obviously personal and when he sings it feels like it is with his whole being.
It was such an honor to get to be one of the few to see this intimate show. He is playing at the Blue Lamp on March 5th. I highly recommend checking it out, but don't take my word for it.
Here is a song off of his new album Curse Your Branches. This one particularly struck a chord with me.
