Steve Earle and Allison Moorer @ the Blue Note

Last night I went over to the Blue Note to see Steve Earle. Overall I thought his performance was pretty good. He performed mostly songs from him extensive back catalogue and a few newer songs. The highlight for me was hearing "The Mountain" which Steve dedicated to coal miners in Kentucky. Steve also spoke quite a bit about living in New York City and how it was different from the country. He also briefly mentioned his character in my favorite television show the Wire and how they were going to be filming this summer. Allison Moorer opened the show and performed a beautiful version of the Sam Cooke classic "A Change is Gonna Come".

It was a great show. Easily my favorite of the 30 shows I have seen this year. Check out my full review over at Hidden Track.
