Show and List Preview:
Oh how I wish I could go to this show as I graduated from UVA and adore Charlottesville. You've heard me rhapsodize about Virginia (I'm a native) and its love of great indie music before. I just took a road trip through rural parts of Virginia, listening to some fantastic college radio on the way, and it firmly reinforced my view that this is a state Kris really should build on his goodwill in. His music is a perfect fit.

Unfortunately I'm a grown-up now with a job and kids who have things going on, so no workday road trip to my beloved C-ville for me for this show. :( But I shall be following one of my favorite Kris fans, @MerryMary05 who is making the journey west on I-64 for this show! Yes, she's on the list.

It's also worth mentioning that this is a rare solo show for this Fall, and as such it will give us a longer set. Plus I've heard this venue is fantastic. I love that they have linked Horizons' Spotify stream and Kris' updated bio. Looking forward to following this one! (Admin. note - I will be getting home from all the said things going on late this night, so may not add people until showtime.)

Updated: Full set list, videos, two radio interviews and mp3 after the jump!
