Two nights ago I went to a benefit at the Hard Rock Cafe for Katrina relief. Molly Jenson, Jon Foreman from Switchfoot and Sean O’Donnell from Reeve Oliver along with 25 or so other San Diego musicians were to play 2 songs each. One of the last acts was 2 of the members (Sean and Sara) of Nickel Creek so I stuck around because I’d only heard a little of their music (of course our main music guy, JonnyUps, spoke of them here). They proceeded to sing one song with vocals then did an instrumental with just a violin and accoustic guitar. They kicked butt! My next album purchase will be this one:
The rest of the night was pretty cool as I did have a bit of time to talk to Jon from Switchfoot and caught up a bit with him. He’s such a gracious guy and a person worth meeting.
