I am prefacing this episode with a shout out to a fellow blogger that has graciously returned from a short hiatus for part of last year. Justin Ward, who heads up livemusicblog.com, runs one of the most popular and informative blogs about the live music scene. His posts cover a wide range of topics including early announcements of festival lineups, concert reviews, and even advice on how to survive a 3-4 day music festival. In addition to all of this the Live Music Blog also has a corresponding podcast featuring some great live recordings which fans of this podcast will most likely enjoy. That's the end of the plug so I hope you'll check this site out if you haven't already.
Moving on to the featured concert for this episode is one that I have eagerly been anticipating putting together ever since starting this podcast. The featured concert is from Will Hoge's February 3rd, 2007 performance in Boulder, CO. I first heard about Will Hoge through a taper in the KC area who at the time was moving to Denver and was going to see him in KC before he left. Ironically enough he was the one who recorded the show in Boulder, so thanks goes out to Ed for sharing this awesome concert.
If you have never heard of Will Hoge's music before it's has a ton of energy, but at the same time a very bluesy soulful sound. The Black Crowes are a pretty good comparison, but Mr. Hoge definitely has a unique sound that is his own. I didn't have to listen to very many of their songs before I added them to my must see list, so hopefully you will have the same experience with them that I did.
