I first saw Rachael Yamagata when she opened for Ryan Adams something like 6 years ago and I really enjoyed it. Her songs were solid and she knew how to put on a good show. Sadly, I haven’t been able to catch her live since then, but it seems that the tides have changed because tonight she’s playing a free in-store at Grimey’s at 6pm.
Rachael has some really great music and has collaborated with Jason Mraz, Rhett Miller, Ryan Adams, Ray Lamontagne, and more. She’s even been featured on a few movie soundtracks including Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants. That’s a pretty good group of friends and supporters. She has a new album out called Chesapeake and will be playing at 12th and Porter later tonight.
