Vita MN: Norah Jones Crashes Cory Chisel Gig At 7th Street Entry (w/The Candles)
Somewhere between Gary Louris’s surprise appearance and the last of many times Norah Jones nonchalantly meandered onto the 7th Street Entry stage Monday night, Cory Chisel muttered to the crowd, “I feel like we’re a good value for the price.”
No kidding. The “special guest” appearances alluded to on the $15 tickets…added up to one of the more memorable big gigs of recent years in the puny Entry.
Leading the so-called Wild Rovers Tour, Chisel had a caravan-like assortment of musicians with him, including members of his usual band, the Wandering Sons, who opened for Jones on tour last year. Also in tow was one player from Jones’s band, bassist Josh Lattanzi, who performed with his own act, the Candles.
……Already here in town, Louris made his one-song guest appearance early in the show with the Candles, who invited him out to sing his Jayhawks favorite “Save It for a Rainy Day.” Chisel joked an hour or two later to Lattanzi, “Remember that night when Gary Louris got up and sang with the Candles?” The most memorable part of the night might have actually been when the band members all traded off verses in a rowdy version of the Grateful Dead’s “U.S. Blues.”
