Emmylou Harris @ the El Rey Theatre April 2011
Last night Emmylou Harris did a show at the El Rey Theatre. And for those that care a special guest artist was indeed special- Ryan Adams! He did a few new songs and ended his set with a song with Emmylou. Most people would be suprised by me being such a fan. Yeah every punk loves Johnny Cash and his rebel attitude, but this love is still punk related. I am a huge fan of the band X. Over the years they have worked with Dave Alvin from the Blasters, and I became a fan of his folk/americana solo records. That sound in turn gave way to listening to Red Dirt Girl and I was hooked. She has an amazing voice. I wasn't there to take pics but I did bring my little canon point & shoot... besides playing the whole new album that drops next week she ended the set with a old song by John Lennon - Imagine. Good times!
