“Josh Ritter is sold out both nights … However, I just got us on the guest list, ha!”. And with that message I was on my way to the Spirit Bar in Nelson, BC … where little did I know I’d need to scrape my brains and heart up off the floor a few hours later.
Warm hard proof of brain blowing & heart melting:
I don’t know the last time I was at a show where one minute there’s an acoustic grip on my insides that makes me tear up and the next my boots seem electric and I’m boogying myself into a puddle of sweat. And I don’t know the last time I saw a show where the audience could actually feel the connection between the folks on stage and see their joy in playing music together.
Needless to say, go see Josh Ritter & co. Better yet, go see them twice. I’m certainly planning on it.
