Behind the scenes: tour rehearsals at CCT

Two *very* full days of rehearsals at Columbia City Theater for Damien Jurado's upcoming EU / US tour, with supporting band The Heavy Light. I won't be seeing the show proper until the band is back in the states (at The Neptune in Seattle, mid-May), but if these run-throughs are any indication, this performances are going to be incredible -- think evolved-yet-classic Damien-style songwriting sensibility + a gorgeous-ly lush, full-band psych-fringe soundscape. With Barry Uhl, Frank Lenz, Josh Gordon, and Courtney Marie Andrews on deck, I'd go so far as to say that this is my favorite iteration of his live band to date.
