My Morning Jacket's live shows NEVER disappoint. The show was small & intimate & was probably the closest I've ever been to Jim James...although I plan to get even closer one of these days! They played a 14-minute rendition of Dondante which is my FAVORITE MMJ song & not one that they play every show. Randomly, at 9:01pm, in the middle of Dondante, the International Space Station flew directly over The Bowl. Everyone in the audience watched as a panning white dot soared overhead while we all lost ourselves in the music. Be sure to watch the Dondante video that I "borrowed" below so you can better understand just how fantastic it was.

My Morning Jacket @ The Santa Barbara Bowl - 7/2/11
Last Saturday night, I had the pleasure of seeing My Morning Jacket again at the BEAUTIFUL Santa Barbara Bowl. It was my 1st time going to the SB Bowl, my 6th time seeing MMJ & my 1st time buying a concert poster which is soon to be framed & hanging on a wall in my bedroom because it is SO sick! When I see MMJ for my 7th time in August at Lollapalooza, they will officially be tied with LCD Soundsystem for the most times I've seen any 1 artist. And, since LCD is unfortunately dunzo (although James Murphy is definitely not), MMJ is sure to eventually take the coveted #1 spot.
