As some of you may know, I am a huge Jason Molina fan. He's right up there with Neko Case, Gillian Welch and John Vanderslice in my esteem. And last time his band, Magnolia Electric Co. (pictured courtesy Dylan Long) toured on the West Coast, he skipped the Northwest. I was not pleased.
Fortunately, my prayers have been answered: Jason Molina will be gracing us with his presence on Saturday, August 1 at the Crocodile. Click that link for a complete list of tour dates. If you've never heard of Mr. Molina, check out these mp3s and get ready to fall in love.
