My Morning Jacket : New Years : Madison Square Garden

I had a pretty low-key New Years this year. Honestly, I loved it. I have had years when I've been down at the Tempe Mill Ave Block Party til 4 in the morning. When I was young we had all night parties at my families house and anyone who didn't make it til the sun came up was not invited the next year.

I once thought I would have liked to go to New York one new year but changed my mind after a friend told me how hard to was to find a bathroom. However, when I ran across Stereogum's post about My Morning Jacket playing Madison Square Garden for the first time in a long time I wished I'd have been there. My Morning Jacket are notorious for their lives shows and for the set list this show lived up to their reputation. 34 freaking songs and this isn't a Sufjan Steven's album where half the sounds at 43 second sound bits. Covers, originals, old, New... this show had everything. Thanks to Scott at Stereogum, we have the audio of this show... it is not the best, but should do for most MMJ fans. The links, along with a video are below.
