It is undeniable the effect My Morning Jacket has placed on live rock music in America over the past couple years. Their legendary show is full of production value and an electrifying experience for all audiences that attend. They are coming off their sixth studio albumCircuital that was released at the end of May of this year peaking at number five on the Billboard album chart.
Amy spoke with keyboard player Bo Koster to discuss the upcoming show in Cincinnati. They discussed his passion for the local record shops and the My Morning Jacket live experience. They will be performing Wednesday August 17th at the PNC Pavilion at Riverbend Music Center.
Amy: Many of the band members are from the Louisville area, are you actually from Louisville as well?
Bo: I actually grew up in Cleveland, a Cleveland boy. I haven’t lived there in a long time but I grew up there. I spent the first 21 or 22 years of my life there.
Amy: You guys opened your tour for Circuital in Louisville at the Palace Theater. You had it broadcast on Youtube with a director. It was a large production. What was that experience like for the band?
