Imagine this. Kevin Morby finds himself in a little bit of a bind, the lease on his current digs expires at the end of July but that flat he’s already put a bid on that looks really sweet isn’t available till September. What should he do?
If you answered something like “mope around and let life get you down”, you’re dead wrong. Kevin Morby’s not the kind of guy to let the system tell him what to do you see. His excellent Harlem River album on Woodsist from last year is a testament to the fact that he’s a scholar of the free-spirited Dylan circa Blonde on Blonde era who ain’t gonna let the man get him down. Instead, he set up a month-long run of dates, currently in progress, which will see him couch surf all over America and get paid to do it. Take that, oppressive real estate industry.
Join the very pleasant-sounding protest at one of the dates below.
