I know I said I wouldn’t be writing about Damien Jurado here now that I’m part of his management team, so I’m not going to review last night’s sold out record release, but I would be remiss not to share this video I shot side-stage of my favorite song from Maraqopa.
Leave me Manhattan, I want the Evergreens …
Joined by friends and younger musicians he has inspired from The Head and The Heart, Pickwick, Deep Sea Diver and Bryan John Appleby, Damien sang this love song to his home state to thunderous applause and hoots and hollers. As he began his set, the seasoned troubadour told the crowd “this is the greatest Seattle show of my career.” But with spine-tingling moments like “Working Titles,” the night felt more like a beginning than a culmination.
