Damien Jurado does "OHIO."

I can't downplay how cool it was to happen upon Damien Jurado, just outside the door of The Social, having a cigarette before he went on stage. I can't even act aloof and above the fact that I was able to talk with him for about 15 minutes (we covered weather, his new album, our similar names, etc). And, well, it was a quiet night for that place, so I was able to capture the video that follows below. Beautiful song, beautifully done. Damien's got me through the nights this weekend, as I've been playing and replaying his albums in an effort to create some peace in this city. What's more, doing so has worked wonders. I've slept remarkably well.
