Thanks to Yeti I was able to see a private performance by John Vanderslice Friday night at the Living Room. This show was recorded as part of the XM Radio series "From the Living Room to the Loft" for future broadcast. Vanderslice, performing solo acoustic, was very loose...chatting away with the crowd, inviting fans and friends on stage to sit. Couldn't help but feel like you were seeing him perform in your apt's living room.....um...yeah.
Overall, the performance was good. I enjoyed "White Dove" off of his new album, Emerald City. Interestingly enough, Vanderslice is doing a unique Blog Tour - performing "live" each song from EC on a different music blog. He's hit fav blogs such as the 'Gum, GvB, BV, Old KY, Aquarium Drunkard, Six Eyes, No Picasso, Catbird Seat, and Chromewaves.
Vanderslice is on tour throughout September in support of his new album with the full band. Head here for tour dates.
