Just wanted to say a quick "thank you!" to the band for that awesome show they played at the Empty Bottle on Sunday night. I missed them at Pitchfork earlier in the day, figuring that I wanted my first Blitzen Trapper experience while standing 15 feet from the stage...and I couldn't have been happier with that decision.
Took my girlfriend to the show, too...this was our fourth show in four days. Elton John/Billy Joel at Wrigley on Thursday, the Black Crowes up in Waukesha on Friday, and then Pitchfork on Saturday, mostly to see The National. We both agreed that the BT show at the Bottle was EASILY the best of the four shows we saw.
Awesome job, guys. Thanks for playing Texaco! And whatever that new song was that Eric played, it was remarkable. Hope to see you all back in the midwest soon.
