cristy and annie invited us to the rock and roll hotel on saturday night to see
eli "paperboy" reed.
we hadn't heard of him, but after about 15 seconds of listening to his sound, we were sold. he's like sam cooke, james brown, and otis redding all wrapped into one man. one 26 year old white man, but whatever. he's incredible. unfortunately his recordings only have half the soul of his live shows. WOW. the whole room was bouncing up and down, dancing with each other.
listen here for a live concert from NPR.
