Misra Records just might be my favorite label. With bands like Centromatic, Hallelujah The Hills, Great Lake Swimmers, Slow Dazzle and Shearwater amongst it’s roster of current and former musicians, it’s hard to argue the statement. My friend Timothy Bracy could be the best songwriter in America. Formerly of The Mendoza Line, his new band Collection Agency is also on Misra and this cool little tour was hitting Washington D.C. the night after this show with his band on the bill. No one will ever realize how hard it was for me not to be there. Fortunately, I was able to be introduced to Jerry and his music. His band The Black Swans tours regularly and would love a future visit to Pittsburgh.
