The Wiltern was packed and star-studded last night for Patty Griffin’s return to Los Angeles. In the 2 minutes I was in line at will call I saw Moby and 1 of the Dixie Chicks. Patty Griffin is one of my favorite folk artists, and her album 1000 Kisses might be the best recent folk album from start to finish. She’s got the voice of an angel, impeccable writing, and really great production. She’s also really captivating. She demands a lot of attention on stage and exudes an impressive amount of confidence. The highlight of the night was definitely when she brought her old roommate and Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant out for the encore. Her new album American kid dropped last month and features a few collabos with the aforementioned Plant.
