Jim James belts it out (with a bomb on his belt) @ Madison Square Garden
"When My Morning Jacket first arrived on the scene, they were unique to the point of grand intrigue for many people, and over the years, they have always made records that have a context that reflects the time and place where they are. They've built up a reputation for being premiere performers, and everyone from Pearl Jam to Metallica has sung their praises. Personally speaking, they've been the only band in recent memory that can record tender acoustic love songs, and then go out on tour with the Foo Fighters--giving Dave Grohl and company a run for their money. It's a great testament to My Morning Jacket's commitment to the music, and they are humble and appreciative about the success they have achieved thus far." [Aquarian]My Morning Jacket headlined Madison Square Garden in NYC last night (12/14). Band of Horses opened the big show and returned to the stage to help MMJ perform the final song of the night, "I'll Be Home For Christmas". Video of that moment with more pictures of the MSG show and MMJ's setlist, below...
