Thanks to everyone who came out to the shows in the midwest to kick off the new year. Chicago was 24 degrees below 0 with the wind chill. It was a cold week but a great one. Hope to circle back and see y’all again before too long. Look for a Daytrotter session in the next few months.

Thanks to Cincinnati Refined for this cool write-up:

#SoRefined Picks:
Wow. Another great week for Cincy music lovers. Winter blahs? No way! Make sure you catch Talib Kweli’s DJ set. And I’m particularly stoked for Athens, Georgia’s Adam Klein. He does Americana that’s simply gorgeous, gorgeously simple. Take a listen: “Sky Blue Deville.”

And to Joe Simon of the Cincinnati Enquirer for taking photos at the Southgate House show. Check out the gallery here.

Bored? You can hear an hour-long interview with St. Louis’ 1380AM “Face the Music” show (see 1/3/15) at
