Ryan Adams

So while I wait for U2 to come to the area, I went up last night to see Ryan Adams, and will be checking him out over the next two days at a couple other places in New England. He puts on a great show, amazing voice, great songs. I think he almost comes across better live because he has such emotion in his voice. Its fun going to his shows, because the atmosphere almost becomes seeing your friend play at a local pub. Its definitely not a polished rock show in respect to playing song after song, very little time in between, and whatnot, and isnt supposed to be. He is great, and if any of you get the chance to see him, you won't be dissapointed. His new double disc record comes out on Tues, so this has been kind of nice to hear the new music on the road before I get the record. Well just wanted to share in my excitment of seeing a couple shows. Do I have any other Ryan Adams fans here?

cheers

Yup, there's a few fans of his about here. Can't wait to hear Cold Roses. He's not playing in Scotland on this tour - waaaaahhhh!

Right here! Ryan is the best.

Man, people at the Ryan board are freaking out over Cold Roses being leaked...but I don't even wanna bother. I'm just gonna buy it ASAP when it's released.

Also, I just updated the B&C Band Index with more older threads on Ryan Adams, in case anyone else is interested.

I realize I didn't go back that far for any other listing in the Band Index, but, hey, it would take forever to do them all...so I must selfishly prioritize.

Cool I was just looking for a thread like this on Ryan. I bought some tickets for his May 6th show because I'm a huge Rachael Yamagata fan and she is opening. But I'll admit--I have no clue who Ryan Adams is. I'm thinking about downloading a few songs of his from Itunes just to see if I like them or not. To those of you who know him--any suggestions of what songs I should give a listen?

I just got home from the Burlington, VT show. It was excellent. I was lucky to have a friend who is the production manager for the Higher Ground. So I got all access, and was able to watch the show from this balcony side stage. It was also nice because it was right next to the dressing rooms. So I was given a proper introduction to Ryan and the band. Ryan is an incredibly nice guy. He definitely has wicked pre show jitters, as you could tell his thoughts are random, and definitely looks a bit scattered. The rest of his band is great, and I actually got pretty close with them throughout the night. I ended up grabbing a bite with Ryan, and he chatted about cold roses, a bit, but also about his other releases coming up. If anyone has ever seen a show, you'll know he's quite into the whitty banter, and having a personal conversation is no exception. After the set, he came right over, and was really into what I thought about the set which was cool. His whole mood changed, and was really happy. He was sporting this vintage looking black sabbath shirt which was cool, and then invited everyone who was backstage to enjoy some drinks on him once the venue had cleared out. He is such a down to earth guy. Its really quite refreshing to see. So as I was making my way out, he asked if I wanted to come hang out at the gig tomorrow night (well I guess tonight at this time) up in Hampton Beach, NH. So I think I'll be making the ride up. I'll fill you in on how that goes, but I'm excited to have met a great guy like him. And by the way, the new songs are incredible, and I can't wait till tues to pick cold roses up!


**I hope this doesnt come across as bragging or anything, I just read my mesage back, and don't want to sound like that. Just sharing in my excitment in a cool night***

cheers!

Bri

"Monday Night" is a great song. It's on a compilation...you can't find it on any of Ryan's regular albums. It's available on iTunes though, so if you're going the iTunes route, I would definitely get that song. One of my favorites.

As for ones you can find on his regular albums:

Come Pick Me Up
Why Do They Leave?
Firecracker
La Cienega Just Smiled
Harder Now That It's Over
Nuclear
Desire
So Alive
Anybody Wanna Take Me Home
Wonderwall
World War 24
English Girls Approximately
Hotel Chelsea Nights
Let It Ride

That "Monday Night" mention goes for all of you other Ryan fans too! Check it out. You won't be disappointed.

I was a bad idea on a Saturday night
Rolled through your fingers and I made you uptight
Little boy blue with my laser on stun
Couldn't dodge the bullets from your infrared gun
All I want is to roll through your fingers, baby
All I need is to make it alright
All I want is to be your connection
Win your affection, be your reflection
On a Monday night
On a Monday night


I was the last thing left of on an afternoon round
Dressing up for trouble at the lost and found
Tried to live forever every day of the year
Give me something before they kicked us out of here
All I want is to roll through your fingers, baby
All I need is to make it alright
All I want is to be your connection
Win your affection, be your reflection
On a Monday night
On a Monday night

Any other time you want me is cool
Everybody look, I'm the fool
I can let you in, if you can let me like
Being your connection, winning your affection
On a Monday night
On a Monday night

Oh, man, I wish I could talk to you
Oh, man, I wish I wanted to

All I want is to roll through your fingers, baby
All I need is to make it alright
All I want is to be your connection
Win your affection, be your reflection
On a Monday night
On a Monday night

For anybody who is interested, there are a few new Ryan promo pics. The one of him leaning against the car is amazing. Click the link for the high quality image to get the full effect.

I'm surprised you didn't list 'Sylvia Plath'...I thought that was a favourite of yours?
