The Interpreter – Rhett Miller

A Thanksgiving treat?

An early Christmas gift?

On The Interpreter Rhett covers some of my all time favorite songs: American Girl, California Stars, Wave of Mutilation, Waterloo Sunset and a bunch of other songs that sound awesome.

Maybe he covered your favorites too.

To hear the whole album before it comes out on Tuesday, November 22nd – click here.

In other news, the best husband in the WHOLE WORLD said I may be able to go to see Rhett in San Francisco at the end of the month.

A Thanksgiving Miracle?

Those exist, don’t they?

Anyone want to join me?

Song notes:

1. Last week I posted my Fantasy Setlist for the Old 97’s show at Harlow’s and then tweeted it to Rhett. He, being the nicest guy in rock, said he’d use it.

2. My list didn’t have any songs from Grand Theatre Volume 2 because I hadn’t gotten it yet {been an insanely weird month – not to worry, I picked on up at the show}.

It is AWESOME!

3. This is now my theme song. I’m a Trainwreck.

Fantasy Set List: Old 97’s at Harlow’s, August 14th

Much to my surprise, my favorite band, Old 97’s,  is returning to Sacramento this weekend {the second time this summer and second time EVER}. I am ridiculously excited because with the Rubes coming soon, I’m not sure how many shows I’ll be going to in the near future. That being said, Sunday night I plan to rock.

Making a set list every night must be torture when you have so many good songs to choose from, so if I were in charge of the set list this is what it would look like.

Song notes:

1. A little solo road trip let me dig deep into my old97s/Rhett Miller catalog. {I’ve been banned from playing them while the hubs is home. He seems to think he’s heard them enough over the years. Whatevs.}

2. Seeing Rhett play this live is a little slice of awesome because of the duet nature of the song. One side of the audience gets the male Rhett and the other gets the female.

There are also crazy internet rumors about women from the audience coming up on stage to sing with him. {What a ridiculously terrifying fantasy/nightmare!}

3. Are you in Sacramento August 14th? If so, maybe we’ll get to see him play this at  Harlow’s.
