Love Versus Heroin in a Rock N Roll Hotel
"I had so much really good sushi in New York that now even Sushi Taro tastes just ok," says my dinner companion.
I suppose abundance of a good thing can make a person overly picky. Although I personally would lop off my right thumb for too much of Taro's ahi tuna (there'd have to be some kind of offering because I always have too much month at the end of my money), I increasingly find myself feeling a malaise over new-to-me music.
It's hard these days to hear a unique set of songs that taste better than stuff I've already had. In other words, I've been spoiled by so much really good music.
These are the reasons why I'm really excited to be excited over Justin Jones' upcoming show at the new Rock N Roll Hotel this Sunday, September 3.
He's pimping out Love Versus Heroin, a chilly-bump giving collection of intimate tunes. For now, he calls DC home, so let's all go support the hometown boy.
This particular show will feature special guests Jimmy Stelling of the Hackensaw Boys on banjo, Casey Danielson of Pale Brother and the Hard Tomorrows on guitar, and Honky Tonk piano player James Sattva coming on down to RnR. It starts at 9pm and is all ages. Monday is a laborless day, so there's no reason not to make it. He puts on a charming live show, and I can only imagine this impressive list of guests making it more enjoyable.
To arouse your appetite without bedding it back down again, here're a couple of examples:
Hope - mp3
Honey I Need You - mp3
