As Operation Every Band was covering Newport from NPR’s live webstream a few weeks ago, one of the many highlights occurred when Joy Williams and John Paul White walked on stage during Emmylou Harris’ headlining set to join her for a version of The Band’s “Evangeline”. This moment…

Photographing my surroundings as I wait for the Civil Wars to take the stage at Good Records.

Spent most of yesterday in Dallas with my best friend Rachel. Had lunch at Taco Diner in West Village. It was unexpectedly delicious, the brisket tacos were the best and the salsa was just as good. After checking out all the shops in the 100 degree heat we got gelato then saw Midnight in Paris at The Magnolia Theater. I love, love, loved that movie. I will definitely watch it again. A lot of literary and artistic references. Its a good movie for those who love Paris, Hemingway, Picasso, Fitzgerald, Dali….and others.

THEN we went to Good Records, I’ve been itchin to check out this place since I’ve been home for the summer. It’s the best record shop I’ve been to, though it sucks that I have to drive almost an hour if I want to visit it again. But I will be making a trip there again next week because The Civil Wars are doing an in-store performance there before their sold out show later that day! I ended up getting their vinyl, which I’m listening to now, as well as The Kills’ Blood Pressures.

It was the best Thursday I’ve had in a while.

Can’t no preacher man save my soul.

The Civil Wars, composed of Joy Williams and John Paul White. John Paul White reminds me of Jack White and Johnny Depp.
