Beautiful to come home form the beach in time for this show.

Cory’s new album Mutt is out on Bloodshot, it has been a long time coming, and if you’ve been going to Cory’s shows the last few years you already know quite a few of them. But while listening to it on the way home yesterday, I was delighted by how well it worked as an album. Go pick it up if you haven’t already.

Audra Mae was one of the two openers, and goodness, she has a great voice.

Play the One I Know You Know

This weekend kicked off splendidly with Cory Branan at Casbah. It’d been entirely to long since I’d seen him and it was wonderful to hear my favorites and some newer songs .
