Download | Tift Merritt (February 09, 2013, Off Broadway, St. Louis, MO)

Earlier in the week, we told (and showed) you a little about our 3rd Birthday Concert at Off Broadway with Tift Merritt and David Wax Museum.  You can find that here.  Today, we're pleased to offer an audio recording of the show for your listening pleasure.  You can find links to download the show in lossy MP3 and lossless FLAC formats below, along with the ability to stream a number of selected tracks.

We hope you enjoy!

Many thanks to Jason Gonulsen, Tift Merritt, her band and her camp for making all this possible.  Also a special thanks to David Wax Museum and those fine folks at Off Broadway for all their assistance, especially Ryan Adams and Steve Pohlman for their help facilitating the recording.

  1. Fantastic recording from Chris and thanks for hosting Jason. I can't believe she didn't play my favorite Tift song...

    Virginia, No One Can Warn You
