Words don't do it justice. Plant and Krauss were amazing. Plant's voice is pure nostalgia and Krauss' voice is pure heaven -- put those two together with a kick-ass talented band and you've got magic.
I saw a knitting friend there (who shall remain nameless). She told me she just found out about the show 2 hrs. before it started. She was really excited to "see Alison Krauss and some old guy." When they sang Plant's "I'm in the Mood" I turned around and told her very self-righteously "THAT'S the 'old guy!'" WONDERFUL!
It was also great being at the Zooampitheater. I saw SOO many concerts there in college, and being there again last night was like a trip down memory lane. Great venue, great music, great memories.
Enough waxing nostalgic. Just go buy "Raising Sand" if you don't own it. It's amazing!

- Temps in the 7o's with NO HUMIDITY
- A new sweater in the pipeline (doesn't it SCREAM 1986?)
- The new Genius feature in iTunes
- My new "70's Sap" playlist (via Genius above)
What's on the 70's playlist you ask?
Make It with You
Everything I Own
Baby I'm-A Want You
It Don't Matter to Me
Lost Without Your Love
I'd Really Love to See You Tonight
Nights Are Forever Without You
Love Is the Answer
It's Sad to Belong
Right Down the Line
Rocky Mountain High
I Am...I Said
Rikki Don't Lose that Number
Don't scoff, I didn't call it "70's Sap" for nothing! Oh put me in Mom's Monza driving down Doghouse Road in 1975 listening to many many of these tunes! Mom's didn't have the racing stripes though -- it was a totally cool color, you know, something like blue.
Never fear -- I've also got a kick-ass 80's playlist -- it's called "Skinny Rocks" - -because really, I was skinnier and rockin' in those days. ;-) I'll share that list with you sometime.
Time to get gauge for the new sweater (no, I'm not using the rainbow colorway, I promise).
