*misfit toys informs us that in fact she missed out on recording the first song and the group sing. (CLOSE ENOUGH FOR US!) For the rest of her recap, stop by our forums.

Thanks again, misfit!

 

Thanks for the find, Jasonized!

Tour! Atlanta, GA and Birmingham, AL

As the label says, Atlanta first:

All smiles in Nash 🙃 We spoke on a panel at the Americana Fest & now headed to play Atlanta tonight! @castrotheband

And there was a Copian in the Atlanta house, so we are hoping for some bootleg, but until then, have this little clip of all the groups on stage, with Jason on tamborine:

 
And then this little thing from Birmingham:

(If you know of any bootleg, let us know, please.)

 

Thanks for the find from Atlanta, ArtTeacher!

I dunno, I’m not tired of it yet…

There’s this piece in The New York Times: How Pop Culture Wore Out Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’.

“Hallelujah” survived the doctor dramas and the evening-soap finales, but it almost succumbed to reality TV, where unseasoned vocalists repeatedly tried to impress their judges by remaking it with big runs and rococo flourishes. Jason Castro delivered the most celebrated “Idol” performance

 
So here’s the thing, Mr. Murray–Jason’s performance is the most celebrated because he did the opposite of “remaking it with big runs and rococo flourishes”; he sang as stripped down a version as there can be, and he still does, which is what lets the emotion shine through. And it’s always beautiful.

That is all.

Set your recording devices!

Because you are going to watch The Wendy Williams Show‘s Thanksgiving episode, airing November 24!!
