For the Record: J. Tillman

I caught the J. Tillman show at the Horseshoe last night, and it was an entertaining change to see him play live. Cancer & Delirium in particular is the epitome of mellow singer-songwriter indie, but there were some high-energy "wall of noise" moments last night that were a good antidote to too much mellow. It must be nice to be both the drummer of a fantastically popular band (Fleet Foxes), and have a successful solo career. And probably all the women he can handle. One day, I too will have my dream career...or not.
