My Morning Jacket in Dallas | August 23rd

My Morning Jacket just released their new album, Evil Urges, on June 10, 2008, and is now on tour all over the states. I've listed their tour dates below, and they will be in Dallas, TX on Saturday, August 23rd @ The Palladium Ballroom. The show starts at 7:30pm. Tickets are $36 and can be purchased through Ticketmaster.

There are also rumors going around that Jim James, lead singer for MMJ, Conor Obert, aka Bright Eyes, and M. Ward are collaborating together and releasing an LP. Looking forward to further details (thanks, Pitchfork!). Jim James appeared on the first track of Conor Oberst's album "I'm Wide Awake It's Morning". You know that one, the song with the monologue about the plane crashing into the ocean (going to a party, a birthday party) ...

"We must blend into the choir, sing as static with the whole,
We must memorize nine numbers and deny we have a soul,
And to this endless race for property and privilege to be won
We must run, we must run, we must run."

MMJ banded together in 1998 out of Louisville, Kentucky. I have only one of their albums, Z, and continue to return back to it on my iPod every couple months over the last year - the entire album is filled with so much energy while at the same time staying consistently mellow.
