Ryan Adams & The Cardinals (March 12th - 20th) ***Tour Blog***

Welcome to Sweet Illusions!
For the next 10 days, I will be using this blogspot as a webspace to document my travels through the South (South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, & Georgia) as The Cardinals finish out what could be their last tour ever.
Check back regularly for setlists, tour updates, general commentary, bar stories, and other tales from the road...

Columbia, SC - Township Auditorium 03/12/09

What a night, what a night... The jams were heavy, the mood was positive, the beers kept flowing, and the vibes couldn't have been better for a first show jump-off. Eric Nielsen helped me incorporate "Twitter" into 'Sweet Illusions' so from now on, we will have instantaneous setlist updates as the Cardinals rip from jam to jam via my iPhone. I hope some of you Ryan Adams Archive kids were able to enjoy the live "Tweets", so to speak- and if you weren't there's no reason why you shouldn't in the future! I give you my word to stay consistent through Atlanta.

The Cards played for at least two hours. I was able to bring in the camera for this one, but the show was so dark overall... take the pics for what you will. I'm still sobering up as I write this; just know that I couldn't have asked for a better gig tonight and everyone in the Township Auditorium was in the best of spirits.

It was great to meet up with some Raleigh and Elon friends in Columbia. Tomorrow holds a shitty 7 hour drive to Nash-Vegas, but I'll be there until Monday, so there will be plenty to report.
