This evening we are making our way to see Brandi Carlile and The Avett Brothers, a pairing we have long waited for. Rumor has it these two bands have been performing "Murder in the City" together on this tour. We are preparing ourselves for weepiness.
The other day we were talking about this upcoming show and how much we love when musicians perform together, even if it does leave us in tears. And apparently we are unable to talk about music and/or concerts without bringing it around to The Lone Bellow. During their last tour, we loved seeing them close out their shows by bringing Escondido back onto the stage for a group performance of Levon Helm's, "I Shall Be Released." Although we were lucky enough to witness this four times, we would have gladly welcomed more.
We have two more Lone Bellow shows on our calendars right now (totally not enough) and we can't wait to see what kind of collaborations may be in store. In the meantime, we decided on a few "dream collaborations," songs and/or musicians we would love to see The Lone Bellow take on. We would love to hear yours, too. Head over to our Facebook page and find out what we picked, and let us know what you would love to see.
