BG and JF sounds like they are rappers.

Truth be told, I was too tired to look up Jay's last name. Still am. Sorry Jay, if you're reading this. I fail.

Yesss!!!

I knew he'd be added as soon as they announced the show a month ago. I'm totally there.

According to the Showbox site, John will be opening the Seattle show.

Pollstar says it's The Long Winters that are opening.

I'm thinking that's an error on Pollstar's part. Don't forget that not all the Long Winters call Seattle home, so it's not just as easy as calling up your homies and being all, "hey! want to join me for a gig tonight, broseph?"

A nice show last night at the Showbox in front of a sold out, yet surprisingly quiet and respectful crowd there.

John opened with Shapes, and then later played Mimi (dedicated to Laura), before closing with New Girl. New Girl's rave up at the very end was so hardcore that he broke two strings.

Video of Mimi on You Tube (the orientation is off for the first part but it gets corrected) : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkaF-gZ3qFE.
In the intro John mentioned that he offered to sing The Beatles' Sexy Sadie for Laura's birthday. When she agreed that would be great he admitted he didn't know how to play the song. Mimi was her second choice.

Great video. And wow -- Shapes and New Girl! Two songs I never would have expected at a solo show.
