Son Volt at the Zoo

I’ve been seeing Jay Farrar play music for around 15 years now. It started with Uncle Tupelo, continued with Son Volt through his solo work and now with the 2nd version of Son Volt. In those 15 years, I’ve never seen him jamming the way he did at the Minnesota Zoo last week. Wow!


Son Volt’s newest album, The Search, has some really great tracks and it plays even better live. The entire band really looked like they were having a lot of fun, and that made the whole concert just great. Farrar even said a few words a couple of times, which is incredible for him.

How odd is it that I saw the Beastie Boys in an old pool, and the following night Son Volt at a zoo. Two great shows, in very odd places, back to back.
