James Blackshaw

It's been a very James Blackshaw-centric weekend. Duane and I caught his performance at ISSUE Project Room last night — just barely since the show sold out, but we were able to stand and listen at the doorway. I've seen him play a few times now, and I'm always entranced by his lightning-fast finger picking and the exquisite, complex, and full-sounding melodies he manages to create with just a 12-string guitar. He has a new album coming out in May on Young God, which he burned Duane a copy of: It sounds just as beautiful as expected. Check out his Myspace site here and get yourself a copy of the new album once it's out here.
