George and I caught Marianas earlier tonight. Despite being their first show, and some slightly dodgy acoustics, the boys did quite well (the Sigur Rós cover was a nice touch). It’s always encouraging to see people you know do something inspired and creative, especially like this.

Oh, and tomorrow night it’s Denison Witmer in Omaha. I love watching Denison live; his sets are always intimate and friendly, whether it’s in a huge tent or a small club. And I’ll finally be able to pick up his new album. Score!
