Justin Townes Earle was in town a few weeks ago. We had hoped to have him in for a Mile Marker session, but he was fighting several days of sickness and could not be convinced to leave the Bluebird. (Hours before his show, in fact, a medic arrived to the venue to give Justin a Vitamin B shot where the sun rarely shines.)

So, in lieu of a typical Mile Marker, Justin invited us to simply kick around the Bluebird for a little while and film as we please. Check out the interview and performance footage below, and click here for a full review and photo gallery of that night’s show.
