AND, the night before, I got to see Will Oldham play at the Grey Eagle. It was Duncan’s birthday present. And I gave him a cake (via the Harvest Lovelies). And then, he thanked me. On stage. And then, we met him. And Jaye Bartell got to give him a copy of his CD. (Jaye Bartell, AKA Pilgrim, who is going to open for Smog on June 10 [???] dang.) I felt really grateful for the chance to meet him, really happy about what a gracious person he is, and, most of all, grateful for the music that he has made that has been a part of my life for 12 years or so now.
