Slaid and Rod at the Bull Run

Went to see Slaid Cleaves with Rod Picott opening on 6/28 at the Bull Run in Shirley.  Rod opened with a quick but excellent four-song set that was just like his opener for Tim O'Brien a few weeks before: Welding Burns, Rust Farm Fields, Your Father's Tattoo (our favorite) and a new song.  Slaid played with one of those tastey and understated mando players from Texas as an accompanist and Rod joined him for a song.  He played a fast array of his sly bullet-to-the-heart songs and mixed in his hits of Broke Down (one of the best songs of recent history) and Breakfast in Hell.  We had a great time and enjoyed seeing Kate again and meeting Jen, another long-time listener.
