Searching For Elliott Smith Tribute Concert

As I wrote about earlier, my wife and I went to see the documentary Searching For Elliott Smith on Friday. It was excellent and definitely worth seeing if it comes to your town. Beforehand there was a tribute concert with some local artists covering Elliott songs. I was able to record them and it came out pretty good. Some of my favorites are Holly Newsom’s version of Twilight, Benson Ramsey’s version of Waltz #2, and Jon Sunde’s version of Hangin Out With Me. You could definitely feel the love for Elliott in the building that night, and it comes across in this recording as well. Enjoy!
