Post #138: James Vincent McMorrow - "Early In the Morning, I'll Come Calling"

Post #138: I typically ignore the advertisements I see on Facebook. I lump them in the same category as any other banner ad I would see online. Most of the time they are a waste as they are touting something I have absolutely no interest in.

Well the other day, I started to notice that some of the ads to the left of my Facebook wall, were actually advertising artists and their new albums.

I've started to see phrases like, "If you like Ben Harper" or "Damien Jurado" or "Iron and Wine", all artists I like.

I'm assuming this is happening because I made a point to start 'liking' bands so that I can get updates on their music and tours.

This is how I came across James Vincent McMorrow. I am so glad I clicked on that ad, and will start doing so from now on.

However, some sadness came with this as well, finding out he was just here at First Avenue opening for another band I like, Rural Alberta Advantage, which I will post tomorrow.

I continue to be amazed at how much good music there is out there. We all just need to be willing to look for it.
