Taking a break for a while. Peace out!



Davy Knowles & Back Door Slam @ Slims, SF 9/6/09…coming soon-ish. (ETA: or not.)

My recording from this show will be up eventually. It just might take a few weeks.

9/25 ETA: I’m going to have to put off posting this recording indefinitely. I just don’t like how it sounds and I don’t have the editing skills needed to make it post-able, IMO. Sorry to get people’s hopes up.

Maybe at some point I can get some help with the editing and I will post it then. We’ll see.

Paul Thorn, The Little Fox Theatre, August 9, 2009 recap w/ audio

Paul Thorn @ The Little Fox, Redwood City, California, 2009-08-09 by tandjam

What I like about Paul Thorn’s songs is their honesty, truth and humor. ‘Real’ is the word that comes to mind again and again.

‘Intimate’ and ‘fun’ are the words that come to mind when I remember the show he played at the Little Fox Theatre in Redwood City August 9th, 2009.

I had a great time at this show, and I will never miss Paul Thorn when he comes to town again. (I really wish he would come to the San Francisco Bay area more often.)

The set list with a few audio samples from that night:

Long Way From Tupelo
Are You With Me
Doublewide Paradise
Mood Ring
I’m Still Here

Every Little Bit Hurts

Better Days Ahead
Hammer and Nail
Temporarily Forever Mine

I Bet He Knows

Honky Tonk Neanderthal (this one has a lot of banter before the song starts, but it’s worth it!)

Everybody Wishes
Pimps and Preachers
Black Rainbow

What Have You Done To Lift Somebody Up
Weeds In My Roses (new song)

Ain’t Love Strange

I Have A Good Day

When life hits you like a truck you gotta rise up.
