Last year’s Grand Champeen show was a dream bill for me- Mike Nicolai opened and one of my favorite bands of the 2000’s played second on the bill. L’il Cap’n Travis is more on the country side of the alt.country spectrum, and they write some amazing pop songs with pedal steel frequently laid over the top. I never thought I would be able to see this band, so I was probably a little too excited to see the band. I got a little teary eyed when they played my favorite song “My Ship is Coming In”. Such a great night.
Thanks need to go out to Philip Garcia for letting me crash at his place at the last minute, and to Liam Dennis & Charlie Passarell for the edit.
