The Warm Up with
Jenny Owen Youngs

In our fantasy, we are totally BFF with Jenny Owen Youngs. After all, we know her first two albums by heart and totally relate to her musical aesthetic. In this fantasy she would call us up on Friday night and ask us to come over to drink beer and listen to records before we went out for Palek Paneer and then went bowling. Yes, we’d have great big plans. 

Luckily, our real life isn’t that far from our fantasy life and today we got to invite Youngs to take a tour of Stax with us and then come to Ardent and hang our and record a few songs. She brought along drummer Elliot Jacobson, who is not only a nice guy, but drums for a bunch of our other favorite musicians, like Ingrid Michaelson, Bess Rogers, Regina Spektor, and Jim Bianco and was recently voted #1 Up And Coming Drummer by Modern Drummer Magazine. And did we mention he is super nice?

All in all – it was a pretty great day. Check out our interview and then go see Jenny and Elliot play TONIGHT at The Levitt Shell at 7:30 FOR FREE!
