John Vanderslice plays at RecordBar on Friday night

John Vanderslice with Damien Jurado

Friday, April 29, 2011
After spending countless days writing about music and countless nights checking out bands, live music begins to wear a little thin after a bit. Then, someone like John Vanderslice comes along and completely reinvigorates your energy and passion for what you do. I should begin by saying that John Vanderslice is somewhat of an indie-folk hero of mine, and thus, when I walked into RecordBar Saturday night and immediately saw that he was sitting at his own merch table, coolly chatting with his tourmates and his fans, I knew it was going to be a special night.
