Travis – The Invisible Band

Listened: Wednesday August 4

The Invisible Band was the first Travis album I experienced anticipating, since I had gotten introduced to the band when their prior album The Man Who was already released. I love the album cover (the picture was taken near Santa Cruz).

I have great memories of hearing these songs for the first time when the band played Yerba Buena gardens in San Francisco. Afterwards we stood in line for a very long time to meet them and get autographs (and at that point it was old hat, since we had met them twice before, once at their Sacramento show, and once at Now and Zen Festival).

This was soon after I had graduated from college, so it was a very memorable and important time in my life. I also had the free time to wait in line in front of Mod Lang the day before for the bracelets that guaranteed us autographs. Wish I had time to do such things anymore!
