John Vanderslice : Hard to Find a Friend's Backstage Sessions

If you'd have asked me at 8:00 pm last night if the planned Backstage Session with John Vanderslice was going to go down, I'd have told you without a doubt, "No." John didn't realize how early he was playing, and he's too kind to monopolize the backstage area, so to avoid inconveniencing Malkmus & The Jicks we set up shop in the back billiard room/secondary bar of the Mercy Lounge / Cannery Ballroom. As if that wasn't enough, it seemed a few select members of the staff (specifically a cranky & rude doorman) didn't want things to go down as planned, but John would not be stopped. With the clock ticking down until his set time, John chose to forgo eating dinner to play some songs for us in a pool hall with his absurdly talented violin player/backup vocalist Daniel Hart. He really is the nicest guy in Indie Rock.

Please, buy a record & see a show!

Do Ben Gibbard, John Vanderslice, and David Bazan have matching Gibsons?

They might, but then again the Gibson J-45 is one of the most popular acoustics out there.
