You should add the Tift Merritt / Amos Lee show at Lincoln Hall on 4/26. Tift has a great new album “See You on the Moon” coming out on June 1 and is playing a few shows with Amos before starting out on a national tour after the release date. I think this show is sold out but still worth noting!

Hi H’Ya folks,
Caught a great show last night w Gregory Alan Isakov (and Rachel Reis opening) over at SPACE in Evanston.
WOW what a great (relatively) new venue!
