Good to get out of the house

The concert kicked! Death Vessel opened. Just the lead singer and a guitar. Really awesome voice. Then Calexico came on. And they were really awesome. I loved the blend of different music styles, ending with a full on mariachi number. Then Salvador Duran, a guy they picked up in Tuscon (just found a kick ass musician by the side of the road), did a few more mariachi numbers. He was really good. I think I could have listened to him all night. Then Iron & Wine. They were really good too. About half their set was just them. Then the other half was with various members of Calexico. At one point, there were 13 people on stage. Three full hours of really good music. Definitely worth it.

By the way, you can download the concert at NPR. I'll be doing that as soon as I get on my other computer.
