Mason Jennings in Boulder
Mason Jennings played Boulder Theater last night, and attracted a larger and rowdier crowd than I expected, skewed more to indie hangers-on and frat boys than to aging folkies. The pit was so full, I could only take a couple videos from further back. The missing-in-action Jonny Polonsky showed up to play bass with his band. In addition to playing most of the songs from the new album, Mason played a couple new songs he had written in Patagonia in southern Chile, "Black" and "So Many Ways to Die." A rollicking evening, and opener Zach Gill played a nice piano/ukelele/accordion set, too!
