I've had a ticket to tonight's Bluesfest since tickets went on sale way back when... because Iron & Wine was playing. (I'll probably pick up one or two more tickets before the end. We'll see.)
Iron & Wine is a guy and an acoustic guitar and is really fantastic. Going to the show was totally worth it. Even with the muddy flip-flopped feet it was totally worth it. I have no idea where the giant Hawaiian shirt came from: it had nothing to do with Iron & Wine. I have the feeling that a previous act just left it there, or something. Won't they be sorry when they get to where they're going and they go to hang that sucker up and it's not there anymore.
