THE MUSIC AND PRESTON BLACK Yonder Mountain String Band, Fillmore Auditorium April 17, 2004
From THE DEVIL AND PRESTON BLACK:
"Okay. I made a mixtape for you."
"You serious? It'd been years since anybody made me a mixtape, and this weekend I get two."
"Well, a CD. Just some stuff you may have never heard. Sara Watkins, Yonder Mountain String Band, Uncle Earl." She handed it to me with an apologetic smile.
"Thanks a lot. I'll listen to it today." I got my stuff from the back seat.
"Yeah, right." Katy tooted as she drove away.
I stood on the corner waiting for whatever would happen next. Walnut Street looked a lot different today than it did Friday night on my drunken stroll up High. The sidewalk felt a little slippy, so I shuffled my feet, my Tele acting like a counterweight to all of the material Jamie had loaded me down with.
I thought about heading straight to Dani's, but remembered she said she'd be up at the library. Pauly's message that he'd be on the road for a few days reminded me I had the apartment to myself. My stomach growled. The easiest thing would be to take it into the diner to see mom. But she'd know I hadn't been talking to Pauly and ask a lot of questions and tell me how sin makes us a prisoner of Satan and all that. Seemed like a lot of trouble for a cheeseburger.

Yonder is the band that delivered me to traditional music. This show sounds amazing, like you're riding the rail at the Fillmore. Great mix of songs--two Beatles covers and some Ozzy. (And The Misfits, too.) If you're afraid to commit, start listening at Troubled Mind and stayed tuned through the encores.
