Damien Jurado at Russian Recording Studios

Categories: Live Music

Damien Jurado played an amazing show at Russian Recording Studios here in B-town on April 11.  The show was produced by community radio station WFHB and they plan to have a monthly showcase in this intimate setting.  There were maybe 50 people in the studio as Jurado played a quiet set of about a dozen songs, including a few new, unreleased numbers.  Highlights for me included Sheets and Denton, TX.  The audience was so close to Jurado that you could tell he was a little uncomfortable by it.  In between songs, I was afraid to breathe because I thought he might get upset and stop playing.  I urge everyone to watch WFHB's web site for future shows at Russian Recording.  By the way, Jurado is on the Secretly Canadian indy record label which is based here in Bloomington.
