Webcast of My Morning Jacket and Kathleen Edwards on NPR This Monday


My Morning Jacket's concert at Washington, D.C.'s 9:30 Club will be webcast on listener-supported radio NPR this Monday night.npr logo

The last time we saw Morning Jacket in concert at the 9:30 Club, they put on an outstanding full bore concert. 930-club-logo.jpg

The webcast will include the opening act Kathleen Edwards.

My Morning Jacket latest CD, titled "Z", has been referred to as "a collection of sad, mysterious dance music."

Lead guitarist, singer and songwriter Jim James, puts it this way:
"We wanted to make a record that grooved and swung, but wasn't trying to imitate classic soul. We wanted to keep an aspect of what we'd always done, but also make something you could dance to or listen to while driving home. Hip-hop and soul music are unifying people right now. I wanted to incorporate that into our music."

Opening act Kathleen Edwards has recently become a favorite here at Thrasher's Blog and in heavy rotation. If you're not familiar with Edwards work, check out this recent webcast. kathleen-edwards-bw.jpg
