Stream My Morning Jacket Live Tonight

May 31st, 2011


My Morning Jacket’s excellent sixth studio album, Circuital, out today, is anchored by the slow-building title track, the beautiful “Wonderful (The Way I Feel)”—both of which are featured in the band’s Storytellers session—a tale of youthful indiscretion, “Outta My System” (“They told me not to smoke drugs, but I wouldn’t listen/ Never thought I’d get caught and wind up in prison”) and the high-pitched “Holdin’ On to Black Metal,” which seems destined to be a smoker when performed live. Perhaps we’ll find out tonight when MMJ plays a hometown gig at the Louisville Palace. The show is sold out, but no worries because as part of American Express’s Unstaged, it’s also streaming live at www.youtube.com/user/MyMorningJacketVEVO. And if that weren’t enough, Todd Haynes is directing the stream and Erykah Badu will be a special guest. So tune in tonight at 9 and rock out from the comfort of your own home.
