Iron & Wine plays Los Angeles (and I can’t go…)

The man who is my favorite singer/songwriter with an acoustic guitar and winner of the “most likely to be playing in Jeremy’s ear for the past several years” award is performing tonight and tomorrow night in Los Angeles.  It quite honestly puts a frown on my face to be unable to attend either show.   His name is Sam Beam….
