The Civil Wars are an amazing duo that I've been listening to since last fall, when my good friend and band-mate Jay introduced me to their music. Having missed their shows in Austin at SXSW earlier this year (we were playing at the same times), we bought tickets to their first-ever show in Vancouver to make up for it. However, yesterday afternoon their support act got stuck at the border, and I happened to get the last-minute call to fill in. Excited would be an understatement.
They were some of the sweetest, kindest, and talented folks I've ever met. Also, they also have very kind fans. I am so thankful for the opportunity to be a part of last night's show; it was a highlight of the year to hear their intertwining harmonies in person and even more so to open. If you haven't heard them yet, you can listen here. You won't be dissappointed.
