Finally getting to high-five Emil Amos

A date with Om, Sir Richard Bishop and Jeremy Barnes

I'm a notorious recluse/hermit. I imagine myself as a postmodern Emily Dickinson—Gchat and Facebook message as letter, yo—but, as yet, I'm nowhere near the writer she was and probably more closely resemble late-stage Howard Hughes. As an introvert, one of the things I dig the most about social networking is the ability to share in the lives and experiences of artists I admire. I never thought I'd be able to tell Ann Magnuson that "Folk Song" will always be in my sonic top ten.

Another rad artist I "know" via Facebook is Emil Amos. When I heard Lilacs & Champagne, my mind was blown. I messaged him to that effect and he kindly requested my friendship. Amos, of Om, Grails and Holy Sons, is extremely talented and hella gracious, and I'm psyched to high-five him this evening. Transcendent drone-metal duo Om performs tonight at Sister (409 Central NW), along with guitar virtuoso Sir Richard Bishop and Jeremy Barnes. I'll see you there.
