I am happy that I will see him play in front of a massive crowd here in Atlanta. Such a change from the first time I saw him when there were only 25 people in attendance.

Why won't he come back to DC????

I'm so stupid....I should've gone to his show here last year.

Same here. Next week's show in Seattle is sold out whereas I saw him here in Santa Fe back in November and there were maybe 75-100 people there. It was only $13 and it just all seemed wrong.

I just saw him and The Frames in concert last night at The Wiltern in Los Angeles.

It was absolutely unbelievable!

I've never seen an LA audience so well behaved and respectable! Of course, you don't see talent like Damien Rice and his band very often...

If you get the chance to go peeps in yer town, GO!

I am speechless from last night's show in Seattle.

Really, I have no words. Even having seen him before a few months ago did not quite prepare me for the mind-blowing intensity of last night.

I'm kinda worried about him actually. I'm afraid he might spontaneously combust. I don't understand how he gets into that headspace night after night. He's kind of a genius. And the shows are nothing, nothing, nothing like the record.

And Seattle is one of the greatest cities with some of the greatest people in the world, period.

Yay! I'm glad you guys loved it. I'm going to have to figure out where I am and when and go. Yeah, live is so different, huh? I was won over after a live show, not the record.

I've been trying to come up with an adequate comparison of what he's like live. This morning it occurs to me he's kind of like Jeff Buckley meets Thom Yorke with a fair amount of Jimi Hendrix thrown in. The audience was dazed. People came expecting a sweet mellow folksy singer-songwriter and instead got their minds blown. They just sat there with their mouths open at the end. Applause seemed inadequate and a coarse way to show appreciation for what was just experienced. He has major rock star potential.

Jeff Buckley meets Thom Yorke is probably a good comparision..

I think his concert was one of the best I've ever been too. I really would like to see him again

damn Martha. Your making me wish there was a DC show in the future.

And I could not agree more about Seattle. I love that city.

It's so weird how his show is so much different than his records. I mean, his VOICE sounds 1000 times better live.

So weird.

He shaved his head! The performance on Letterman was great--very generous of him to let Lisa sing "I Remember," giving her the spotlight.

I saw two shows this past weekend...amazing. He really shocked some people in the crowd who were expecting a very mellow, laid-back person.
