i snuck into joe's pub ticketless two-some years ago and then hid between the early and late shows so that i could stay for two. it was will oldham with his brothers singing reckless three part harmonies on gothic traditionals and chanteys just after their father went and died. i never saw anything better or sustained such a chill so long and ancient bluegrass matriarch hazel dickens was the opening act. i was operating back then on a point and shoot digital with elementary video capabilities. not much footage made it out the door and i forgot it even existed until a couple weeks ago. well, to coincide prettily with that remembering and the revisiting of this moving time when i was by myself and 26, aquarium drunkard has pulled off a miracle and posted all three of the night's sets. i'm indebted and love. listen for the train rumble underground.
