The quick brown fox jumped over the good, but lazy Parker family.

sarah harmer @ the birchmere

i always get nervous when i see people live for the first time.

invariably, they look like its either the first time they’ve ever picked up a guitar, or that they started playing about two weeks before their tour started and have pretty much mastered the three chords required to play their “best” song.

no worries for sarah harmer — she ripped the lid of the birchmere tonight, and looked ridiculously comfortable doing it.

there wasn’t a bad song from the bunch, with “careless”, “basement apartment“, and finale “lodestar” standing among the best live songs i’ve ever seen.

this live music thing seems like a good hobby to get into.
