    Dave was great at the end...and the band sounded great. Too bad the place I saw them in last fall had terrible sound.

    just saw him at the paradise in boston.
    this is a great show to see and with him touring smaller places now, it's even more of a benefit imo.
    good stuff.

    He is an interesting guy with an interesting history, made the push late in life for a career in music. Check out Joe Rogan's podcast episode #564.

    I have been listening to him a ton over the last couple of weeks. I first heard about him on here. I love the way Metamodern has been recorded. I have some time this week where I don't have any songs I need to work on, so I'm finally going to sit down with transcribe and try to figure out some of Laur's stuff.

    Oh yeah.

    A harmony-singing groove player?

    Don't find many musicians who are drummers LOL.

    Great band.

    Seeing him live in a few months and really excited. I was supposed to see him last week but the show was cancelled due to illness.

    He's got a great story too:

    After the revelation that is discovering Sturgill Simpson, there’s the delight of learning that his guitarist, Laur Joamets—a sensational player who flashes winks of hard rock between fall-from-heaven slides and growling blues—cut his teeth not in some Austin back room but in the post-Soviet state of Estonia. Dubbed onstage as Lil Joe, Joamets has been collecting awed shout-outs from the New York Times and Hollywood Reporter and closeups on national TV (see below), but the man himself has remained something of a mystery until now, with this, his first English-language interview...

    I've listed to MetaModern Sounds about 500 times the last 4-6 months; great stuff! I love Sturgill's psychedelic lyrics as well.
