you lucky, lucky people.

You have no idea.

Jim Lauderdale. Eddie’s Attic. May 13th.

Jim Lauderdale, for those of you looking at me blankly, is one of the most interesting singer-songwriters working in bluegrass today. If you haven’t heard “It’s a Trap,” off his album The Hummingbirds, you have truly missed out.

If you still don’t believe me, call the nice people at WDVX, broadcasting out of east Tennessee, and ask them. They’ve got him playing at their annual CamperFest at the end of May, and since I will be out of town (sob! gnashing of teeth! pulling of hair!) on May 13th I may well go all the way to east-of-Knoxville just to see Jim Lauderdale in action. But you, good people, do not have to.

Folks, look at it this way: the last time I told you not to miss a concert upon pain of doom, it was Guitar Wolf at The Earl, and after that show Guitar Wolf flew home to Tokyo, and less than a week later Bass Wolf was tragically dead of a heart attack and the band’s future permanently in doubt. So listen to your metroblogger, and go.

    Thanks for the head’s up! The last two times I’ve seen him has been at Smith’s Old Bar (ie lots and lots of smokers) and I can just take the train to Eddies. That week is really filling up: Monday – Decemberists @ Variety, Thursday – Black Keys @ Variety and now Friday. Yippee!
