The Art of Saint Bartlett / Ghost Gallery

by Dianna Potter

I wish I wasn't just hearing about this because it sounds awesome! Dianna Potter has created a show around Damien Jurado's 2010 album Saint Bartlett. It's going to be up at Ghost Gallery for 2 days. Also on display are tour photos by Hayley Young, Caitlyn Z. Mirete, and Sarah Jurado. And tonight, Damien will performing in the courtyard of Ghost Gallery.
Sometimes an album comes along at just the right time, and the lyrics are exactly what you need to hear at that moment in your life. You don’t have to be tuned in to lyrics to enjoy Damien Jurado’s music, but for those of us who fixate on lyrics, his songs are a treat. In the words that Damien sings, it’s easy to find comfort, solace, sadness, hope, beauty. In the months leading up to the release of Saint Bartlett, Damien and his wife Sarah became a source of comfort and strength in my life as I went through a difficult time. I found that I could relate to many of Damien’s words on a deeper level than ever before, and as an outlet for that emotional energy, the art of Saint Bartlett project was born. - Dianna Potter
There's a $5 suggested donation and Damien plays at 8pm. More info here and here.
