eMusers at Big Ears Festival 2019
So, I'm here in Knoxville. Some of you may be, too.
I got into town Friday afternoon. What I got to see:
Harold Budd and Mary Lattimore in a beautiful church
Ralph Towner in a beautiful church
Spiritualized in a cool concert hall
Fire! in a cool dive
I ate at a crappy sushi joint on Gay Street (Nama). Literally inedible.
I ate an EXCELLENT Asian restaurant called Kaizen. I mean, it was so good, it made me want to move to Knoxville just so I could eat there full-time. I had the fried oyster fried rice bowl, which had fried oysters, kimchi, fried egg, tamarind-chile syrup, fried shallots, fresh herb. I also did two steamed buns... the thai sausage and the eggplant. I was in heaven.
Also, had some nice tea and an iced latte in a pretty serene environment in a place called Jacks. It's conveniently located venue central on Gay St.
