The Perfect Vessels opened for Sebadoh at the Hi-Tone on Saturday night. My friends and I had the wonderful opportunity of playing on the same bill as Sebadoh this weekend. It was the most fun I have had playing as a member of The Perfect Vessels, and I wish every show could be more like […]

This weekend I played another show with the Perfect Vessels at the Buccaneer. I used to frequent The Buccaneer when I was a student at Rhodes. There was nothing like checking out of a sunny Memphis afternoon for a vinyl barstool in this darkest of dark bars. Entering the Buccaneer during the day was sort […]
