First, if you've never seen the great Josh Ritter and his band live, you need to haul ass over to the Urban Lounge on July 22 to do so (w/Langhorne Slim supporting). --- Ritter is Springsteen-esque in his songwriting/singing talents and this Moscow, Idaho boy is one of the most positive, enthusiastic and energetic performers I've ever seen. You will not be disappointed. He brought down the house at his Gallivan Center show last summer.

Second, The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter is one of the best albums you'll ever hear -- 100% solid from start to finish.%uFFFD Go buy it. You can listen to it in full for free here. It's worth the price of the CD for the tune "Right Moves" alone -- one of the catchiest tunes I've heard in years, with great blasts of kitschy horns.
