Saturday night with the Heathens

Went out to see one of our favorite bands to see live, The Band of Heathens, on Saturday night. A rather high-impact show for me these days since these 100°+ days we're having really drag me down, and standing up for 6-7 hours straight is tough on the old bones.

While waiting in line to get in, a man came along and gave us some free tickets! Saved us $30! (Also it made up for that fake "5 dollar bill" I picked up off the sidewalk.) They were comp tickets and there were a few pairs given out, we were glad to get them.

The song in the video is "Look at Miss Ohio," which is one of the few covers the band plays (this one comes from Gillian Welch) - and they do an energetic version with some cool Pink Floyd vibes in parts.

The Heathens are back out there on the road now, so if you like what you hear/see, check out their schedule.

I think the hand of Jesus was behind those free tix. He feels bad about your being scammed by one of his followers.

You can't go wrong with a Gillian Welch song!
