Ryan Adams & The Cardinals-1/29/2008

As a huge fan of Ryan Adams, I realize that his live performances can range from frustrating to marvelous. Here is one of the marvelous ones. This show is from the end of Ryan's "Easy Tiger" tour earlier this year in Santa Cruz, CA. I love this particular show because it's short on Ryan's known in-between song ramblings and also short on material from the mediocre "Easy Tiger" album. What's great is how Ryan and his great band The Cardinals can reinterpret his material live. If you were ever on the fence about Ryan Adams as a live performer, do yourself a favor and crank this show up nice and loud. Especially the killer rock version of the "Love is Hell" quiet stunner, "I See Monsters"!
