Routes and Branches Play List 11/19/11

What a week for live music of our kind here in Eugene. There were so many bands here that I felt like I was at a music festival having to choose between bands performing at the same time on differrent stages. Of the four nights I made it out three of them I had to choose between two to three bands that I would all have liked to see. The bands that I did see were Dawes who opened for Blitzen Trapper, Lucinda Williams who's back up band Buick 6 warmed up the audience with an excellent set of instrumentals, a night of new grass from Hot Buttered Rum and Greensky Bluegrass, finishing up the week with a ride on the Great American Taxi.

Great American Taxi were nice enough to stop by the station and play a couple of tunes on my show before they headed off to Portland for another gig. The Taxi have recorded a new CD called "Paradise Lost" which was produced by Todd Snider and recorded earlier this year in Nashville. Snider helped the members of GAT to focuss on song writing for this album which is reflected in tracks like "Poor House" and " Blair Mountain" which they played in our studios this afternoon. The album may be more focussed on the song writing, but get them on stage and the Taxi does a great job of streatching out the jam in a tune. Sorta like a mix of The Byrds, New Riders of The Purple Sage and the Grateful Dead. I certainly can't wait for my next ride on the Great American Taxi.
