TVD Live Shots:
Jim James at the
Vic Theatre, 11/9

On a freezing fall night in Chicago, Jim James filled the sold-out Vic Theatre with more than just bodies.

I believe I truly felt hearts and souls expanding as the My Morning Jacket frontman led us on a spiritual journey in the form of his music. Stripped down to just his voice and a guitar—with occasional drum accompaniment by Dave Givan—James’ lyrics took on a poignancy that resonated to the core.

Given the current state of our divided country, we could all stand to revisit his discography, including this year’s Uniform Distortion and Uniform Clarity. His fall tour carries on to a few more stops before concluding in Louisville on November 23rd.
