Midwestern for Life

"The best shows I’ve ever played are like that one — when I feel like I’m really a part of this community, this kind of overgrown neighborhood, no matter where that happens. Usually it happens best in out-of-the-way places like Duluth or Menomonie, Wisconsin, or Fargo, North Dakota, or Ames, Iowa, or Hancock, Michigan. It feels like folks have made an effort to be there just like I have. The edge of the stage disappears a little and you find yourself having bits of conversation with audience members between the songs."
