the felice brothers, salt lake city & denver

i just got home from another lovely quick trip to see the felice brothers. it was wonderful. i visited the fabulous emily in salt lake city on monday. she came to the show with me and graciously let me stay at her house. (and, again, i didn't get a picture of you!) and the show was great; they even played lady day for me...










setlist:
fire at the pageant
endless night
murder by mistletoe
run chicken run
white limo

and tuesday night i saw them in denver; it was incredible.

the opening band, shovels and rope, were really good.

of the four shows that i saw in the last month, denver was definitely the best. i also got a chance to have a conversation with ian, and ask him about some of his songs. it was very nice. i showed him my lady day necklace. and, he told me that he has continued to use my picks. that makes me so happy. i have never loved a band the way i love the felice brothers.

it's very good to be home. and, for those of you who are not felice brothers fans, if you're tired of all of these posts about the shows, i apologize. but it will be a while before i go to any more. (they're not touring again until the fall!)

Amazing pictures, looks like you're making some wonderful memories this spring:) Thanks for turning me onto the Felice Brothers, it's just the kind of singer/songwriter/storytelling music I'm drawn to. take care.

oh susie, i truly think they are the best band EVER! let me know if you want any recordings of live shows or other unavailable material; i'd be happy to pass it on!
