Greetings from San Francisco! Here I am nestled under the fog, bravely going to cover the Outside Lands Festival for you all (take one for the team, I know). Things get underway in just a few hours and I will be heading over once I can figure out what to do with my car. I think I’m walking 26 blocks. Awesome.
One of the artists I am really looking forward to seeing this weekend (there are many) is the always-enjoyable Matt Nathanson, who plays a hometown show tomorrow at 7pm on the Avenues Stage. I’ve recently been listening a lot to this stellar cover he performed not long ago on Sirius radio:
Thunder Road (live on Sirius) – Matt Nathanson
In related news, this second Springsteen cover features Charlie Gillingham of the Counting Crows and David ImmerglÃ¼ck of the Crows and Camper Van Beethoven. Both of those guys played on Matt’s record Still Waiting For Spring back in the day.
Atlantic City – Matt Nathanson w/ ImmerglÃ¼ck and Gillingham
Both covers are lovely. Maybe everything that dies someday comes back. Ah, I hope.
