North Mississippi Allstars

Last night, Clay and I went to the North Mississippi Allstars show at the bar where he is the GM. The show was pretty well attended (this was the second night). After a somewhat rickety first set, the show was great (with earplugs). They played lots of tunes off of 51 Phantom and Shake Hands With Shorty. The crowd was behind them (those that weren't too stoned to know where they were) and ultimately it was a great performance. They didn't play too much off of their new album, Polaris, which I haven't really gotten into yet. If they play in your area, I'd recommend going-- they are some very talented young guys!
