The only show I’ve ever liked at DAR involved indie rock’s most talented and dare I say accessible jam band, My Morning Jacket. I had barely heard any of their music when I was dragged kicking and screaming by a former friend to a venue I had written off long beforehand. Needless to say, it was one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. The music was crisp, technically genius and emotional (just the way I like it). The venue swelled and ached with the sadness of Jim James’ crooning and the fullness of backing accompaniment. Truly, I could go on for several more sentences if not paragraphs. The fact remains: My Morning Jacket is a show to be seen. Period. Lucky for you, dear reader, we’ve got two pairs of lawn seats to their upcoming gig (w/Neko Case, no less) at Merriweather Post Pavillion this Friday (Aug 12).
Let’s listen to my favorite MMJ track while you try to think of a clever retort for our trivia question below, yeah?
TO WIN: Answer us this… You are shrunk to the height of a nickel and your mass is proportionally reduced so as to maintain your original density. You are then thrown into an empty glass blender. The blades will start moving in 60 seconds. What do you do?
