Today my wife and I were able to attend a very small (about 30 people) acoustic performance at a local radio station studio. We got to hear Shawn Mullins and Gin Blossoms perform 4 songs each. All while sitting less than 10 feet from them. I've never considered myself a fan of either. However I was very impressed with Shawn. I'm afraid I sold him short due to his extremely overplayed late 90's hit Lullaby. I really enjoyed the songs he played from his new album, and also an Amazing cover he did of the Animals' - House of the Rising Sun.
This was all part of a new promotion from a new radio station here in Des Moines. They call it Studio C. Their goal is to get any artists they can passing through the Des Moines area to come do a short set for a small group at their studios.
It was really quite cool. Everything was recorded and aired in shockingly good quality. Just before I left the house I started my Yamaha CDR-HD1300 recording the station. I'm very stunned at the quality I got. When I get it copied to CD I'd be happy to share a few tracks with anyone interested. I figure since it was broadcast live there's probably no law against just sharing the music.
After the show we were able to meet the members and get autographs and photos. Did I mention it was cool?????
Anyway...just had to share! Thanks for tuning in!!!:D
