From a Vice interview with Lee Fields, “Lee Fields Is the Coolest Motherfucker to Ever Sing Words Into a Microphone”, where Lee discusses his show:
…I love all of the audience. I look at them not as fans, but as my extended family. It’s a love of mankind — trying to get that moment of euphoria. A few moments where we can escape from whatever it is that’s causing discomfort in our lives. We’re gonna escape. That’s what I’m trying to achieve in the course of that performance, so although we’re in one building, we’re not going anywhere, but we do go somewhere. There’s a small excursion to a place that words cannot describe, and we try to go there for a moment, and although we want to stay there, we can’t stay there long. But that one moment is worth all of the efforts.
Lee Fields plays Marfa October 12 (on his way to Austin for ACL – his only two Texas dates in the fall). The amazing Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears open. Buy tickets online or at the door (you can also swing by the gallery). All tickets are willcall. –NI
