They're playing in Nashville and Atlanta, along with a whole bunch of other dates and I'm pretty sure it's meant to be that I attend this show: Nashville's show is at the Riverfront Park, the site of my very first MMJ concert way back when (whose poster I purchased 2 or 3 years after the actual show & it now resides over my bed...so pretty) and the best part of this gig? It's on my birthday!!!! June 30th brings these three acts to Nashville & this girl can't wait- I can cross off something from my bucket list seeing Dylan live- come on, who truly loves music and doesn't want to do that? and it's very possible it may turn into a Nashville birthday weekend with some of my friends up there, as well.

Have I mentioned that My Morning Jacket is my favoritest of favorite bands & this will be my 6th time seeing them? And that Jim James is playing solo at Forecastle just about 2 weeks after the Nash show? No, I'm not excited at all. heh.
L says he's going to get our tickets this week (they go on sale Wednesday, April 24th for the presale) and I've heard they're around $80 a pop, which is a super great deal when you consider the caliber of acts that are playing together on a stage- and once again, it's BOBBY D! I know, I know, he doesn't sound like he did back in the day anymore, but still- like I already said- bucket list material here.
Anyways, I just wanted to let you in on that awesome tour news, friends- hopefully it makes some of you as excited as it totally did me! Are you planning to attend any of the shows?
You can find out more info & some awesome snark I adore over at Nashville Cream.
