Over the weekend, I went to see Carbon Leaf for probably the 6th or so time up in Burlington. There's really not any point in reviewing these guy's live shows any more, because I generally gush about them, and everything that I've said has been said before already.
Their opening act, the Clayton Sabine Band, wasn't too bad - They sounded a lot like a Pearl Jam band, but had some decent lyrics to back up their sound. I don't think that they're a group that I'll follow, such as Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers, Matt Nathanson or the Adam Ezra Group.
Here's the set list:
Let Your Troubles Roll By
What About Everything?
One Prairie Outpost
Love Loss Hope Repeat
Life Less Ordinary
Torn To Tattered
Another Man's Woman
Learn To Fly
Blue Ridge Laughing / Freebird jam
Raise The Roof
Audio tracks are from the Neptune's Park at 31 Ocean on 2008-07-17 show.
This was a fantastic set, a lot of their really good songs, and a couple that sound like they might make it onto the new record when it comes out (Terry told me next February, 2009. Apparently, they're about 5 days away from wrapping up the album completely. Stay tuned, you'll hear about it here)
