This morning, the legendary Jim James of My Morning Jacket announced a tour in support of his new album, Uniform Distortion. The Charleston Music Hall has the honor of hosting the first night of the tour on Wednesday, May 1st, 2019. The tour will run through the rest of May, and then Jim will finish out the summer with a few festival slots, including my personal favorite, Bonnaroo.
I have not personally witnessed a Jim James solo concert, but I was absolutely blown away by My Morning Jacket’s performance at Shaky Knees. Jim played a major role in that performance, and I’ve always enjoyed his solo albums, so I would imagine that this tour is going to be fantastic. Especially Jim will be performing with a full band (not My Morning Jacket).
The Charleston Music Hall is the absolute best venue in Charleston for a concert like this. The production quality in that room is something that venues everywhere should strive to reach. Jim James and his band are going to crush it in there, and I encourage you to be there to witness it.
