Joshua James, Coal War & Glenn Tipton.

Joshua James is coming to our spot of the map tonight. It’s been a couple months of touring and couch surfing and Japan-visiting for him (he got back in yesterday), so that automatically makes this one of those right nice homecoming concerts. Luckily, it’s at the best sounding venue in the state.

I’ve written about him here before, sure, but I'm gonna go ahead and talk him up again. I’ll be there, enjoying it and smiling plenty. He’s been doing this spot-on rendition of Sun Kil Moon’s “Glenn Tipton” a lot lately (heard him do it again on the radio this morning) and, chances are, we’ll hear it again tonight.

Interesting note: did you know Glenn Tipton is a singer for Judas Priest? I didn’t either, not until the Internet shared that with me. Take that tidbit to the bank. And, after you’re done with that, enjoy an acoustic version of “Coal War” with “Glenn Tipton” attached to the end of it. I filmed this one prior to his tour, but it sure doesn’t get old. Hope you like.

With a voice like that, it's sure hard to believe the guy's 25, eh?

Wow, that's nice. Very nice. Such a clear, controlled voice. Only 25, huh?

Imagine that, eh?

Oh, I got to hear him on the radio, which isn't quite as nice as in person, but it sure helped me with a too-long commute to work.
