Saw Mumford & Sons tonight at War Memorial. And because this is Nashville, Old Crow Medicine Show dropped in for the encore and a rousing rendition of “Wagon Wheel,” then they all headed down to the Station Inn for Mumford’s fourth performance of the evening, which I would have given both my arms and a leg to get in to (and is currently still going on as I sit here angst-ing about it at 2am). Despite not getting everything I want in life (First World Problems are a bitch, eh?), tonight was special in a way that I can’t really touch with words, and I will hold it close to my heart. Or maybe I’m just delirious because I have only slept for 8 hours since Saturday.
In honor of TODAY! (Mumford & Sons Return To Nashville Day 1 of 3) I am reblogging myself from two years ago.
That was a sweet, sweet week - The Avett Brothers at the Ryman, Jonsi in Atlanta, Mumford & Sons at War Memorial and Sufjan Stevens in Knoxville all in the span of 8 days. Crazy, but so fantastic.
Edit to say: Wow, this video quality is so much more terrible than I remembered. This was back in my pre-iPhone days.
