Gush: Damien Jurado

Have you heard of Damien Jurado? I saw the guy play a few years back at Sasquatch! Music Festival. He must’ve been in a bad mood because after noodling around in his brief soundcheck he stormed off the stage. It took a fan to hop in front of the mic to publicly beg Jurado to please his fans. He plugged through the set and offered a half apology for his displeasure.

This performance got me. I get the challenges of turning it on for people. It ain’t easy.

Here I provide a short list of albums Jurado loves. I’m surprised by the list’s diversity and his sweet memories of how he stumbled upon each one.

Jurado’s playing the Garrison on May 30, 2016.
