{     iron & wine live     }    

headed down to lexington, kentucky yesterday for the most anticipated show of the last few years for me personally... (well, the flaming lips are probably up there too).... anyway, after sitting through two VERY long opening acts, iron & wine finally took the stage at around 11:30, maybe??? the one man band is transformed on stage into a 3-piece with a guitarist/slide guitarist/banjo picker/mandolinist, a drummer/xylophonist/guitarist/back up singer, and of course the man himself, sam beam... they had a couple of people sing with them on a couple of songs who may or may not have been from the other bands, if they were, maybe they should commit to singing back-up vocals for iron & wine full time, those songs were great... ...and not only were those songs wonderful, every single song that they played was spectacular... they played some new stuff that most people have probably never heard and they can really rock out, despite the releases put out thus far with no drums and super soft sounds... there was plenty of that too and it was probably the most beautiful live music i've ever heard... even jessi c who hates everything or simply doesn't have an opinion most of the time thought it was gorgeous and she's never even heard them before except for one song on the car ride there... an added bonus were the two covers of the flaming lips' "waitin' for a superman" and the postal service's "such great heights..." they played for probably an hour and a half and i think it's safe to say that everyone there would've gladly sat through another hour or more... i would've anyway...

I will chime in on this and attest to the fact that this show was one of the most moving musical experiences I've ever had. Truly. I felt very alone during that show, somehow in a good way, but alone. In a way relating to his lyrics, or maybe just seeing his emotion and his honesty, just made me stand there and admire this small man up there on a stage in front of all these strangers, spilling these words and feelings out onto the wooden floor. Whatever, the fact is, there is nothing I'm going to say here that will be even near good enough to describe just how wonderful this man and his guitar can be when given a stage and silence.
