An Evening with My Morning Jacket

Dreams came true tonight. I don't know how many times I've watched My Morning Jacket's Okonokos DVD and wished I could witness a show like that for myself, especially up in the front... and now it's happened.

Originally Emily and I had seats in the back of the orchestra section at the McCaw Hall in Seattle, but during Lay Low I decided to head toward the front, where the front of the orchestra section we were in, met the special reserved seats. I noticed a lack of security separating the two, so Emily and I walked right in and perched ourselves right in front of Jim James, one of the few men that Emily and I agree we want to bone. And tonight was no different.

Don't get me wrong, the rest of the band is talented too, but we couldn't keep our eyes off of Mr. James. His charisma onstage is uncanny, without much effort. And shit, that man can play guitar and make it look easy.

I'm pretty exhausted and closing my eyes as I'm writing this, so I'm going to go to sleep now. To summarize: An awesome, varied set with a long encore; no opening bands to sit through; we were in the front of the stage for awhile; beautiful and comfortable venue with a good view wherever; Jim was looking mighty fine; and I was there with Emily (the tix were a bday present). Plus we picked up some sweet merch, including a hand-numbered silkscreen poster. Goodnight!

Wow, That picture is amazing!
Looks like something you'd see on the band's personal website.
