Can you believe it’s already time for my First Thursday shout-out? I’m still not sure whether time flying makes me happy or disturbs me greatly. Regardless, this month’s artist is one I have been really excited to discuss for some time. Back in May I was invited to perform at a show at Vassar College (which was already an emotional experience because I lived in Poughkeepsie until I was about 5) and while there I had the opportunity to see this week’s artist perform. Their set was raw and beautiful — I knew that one of these Thursdays I had to give them a shout-out. And so here we are — this week’s artist is none other than Vagabon. Listen to the wonderful project Persian Gardens here and thank me later.
