SAW JASON ISBELL TONIGHT, COUPLE OF FIRSTS...🎤🎸

  1. Standing ovation, mid-set...
    He played Cover Me Up, and he SLAYED it, and yknow, it's a personal song about his drug and alcohol stuff and coming through that. And yeah, at the end everyone in the balcony got to their feet. It was astonishingly good.
  2. He thanked the dudes giving out water...
    Does this happen at American shows? At big gigs the bouncers hand out water to people in the stalls. Isbell thanked them and said how great what they were doing was - really nice touch.
  3. First time seeing him...
    Seen Drive By Truckers before, and nearly opened for Isbell once (got pulled on the morning of the gig, gutted), so this was my first show of his - he did not disappoint.
