show 172 – Justin Power

Hi, everybody; this is Todd. As I’m writing this, it’s about 2:30 a.m, and it’s warm and beautifully rainy outside. I love the smell and sound of rain in the middle of the night; I guess I’m a Portlander at heart.

Wow. Fun show today! Justin was great, and the show flew by. I felt a little nervous–doing my first interview, live performance, AND pledge drive, all at the same time–but I felt like the show had a good flow overall. Justin’s a really nice guy, and if you have a chance to see him live, you really should do so. He makes it look effortless, and his songs are beautiful.

Here’s the playlist:

E – Hello Cruel World – A Man Called E (Polydor)
Crystin Byrd – Please Let Me – My Silence (self-released)
Elliott Smith – Angeles – Either/Or (Kill Rock Stars)
