Sessions at Mollusk....

Mollusk has been having these cool little open jam seshes on the 2nd Thursday of every month, full of improvisational jams and sit ins from some fantastic players round town. Towards the end of last Thursday evening's jam, guitar man Blake Mills (ex Simon Dawes) sat down with his Les Paul and quietly began riffing, which he tastefully transitioned into Vic Chesnutt's "Where Were You". Moments later Jeff Litz got on the kit, I happen to have my video camera in my backpack and captured the very rad impromptu moment... shaky camera included (Tecates...). 

Even in its raw spontaneous form with mistakes and all, it was a great rendition of the song for certain. Blake is the real deal kids. Respect to Chad Marshall for putting it all together.
