"You are the drug that I can't quit. Your perfect chaos is a perfect fit. So I'm on the road to you ..."
"Shameless" fans: Maybe you fell in love with that haunting song, "On the Road to You" on the "Just Like the Pilgrims Intended" episode? That's how I discovered Tired Pony. Click below to watch an entire concert by this super group.
The concert was in London, their first-ever. They're sort of an imaginary band dreamed up by Northern Ireland's Gary Lightbody (of Snow Patrol) who "enlisted an impressive roster of players including R.E.M.’s Peter Buck and Belle and Sebastian’s Richard Colburn to help him write a twisted love-letter to the States." You don't need to know all that. Just enjoy. Their album is "The Place We Ran From," recorded in Portland, Oregon.
And, yeah, Zoooey Deschanel does sing "Shameless" song, aka "On the Road to You" on the album, but in concert it's the fabulous Irish singer Lisa Hannigan.
