Take {ME} Away Shows

I don't believe I have properly expressed my love for Take Away Shows. It all started a year ago when my friend Jonathan posted about Yeasayer's Take Away Show. I was blown away-in love.

It's an obsession and I'm not even worried about it. I could go on forever.

Ohhh... it's like medicine to the soul. Soul medicine.

I love Yesayer. "Tightrope" has been in heavy rotation in my head. I see you mentioned it in an earlier post. It was at Lollapalooza last summer when I really started to dig them, and that Take Away Show of theirs is great.

I originally hail from the same hometown (Eau Claire, WI) as Justin Vernon, aka Bon Iver. Relatively speaking I was one of the first people in public to hear the For Emma songs, at a show in Eau Claire in June 2007. Right away, first song, I knew it was something special, but I had no idea it would blow up as much as it has. It's definitely been awe inspiring to see a local kid done good and big in the world.
