There's something about a musician alone on a the stage with an acoustic guitar that always feels special. Maybe it's that it always feels more intimate, just by the stripped-down nature. I'm not sure. I do know that those of you who like Paul Thorn will love watching him perform "Mood Ring" in this video from his show at the Granada on Wednesday, March 5. It's a little quiet, so turn up the speakers. -- Chelsea Ide
