Jim James Confirms Solo Date, New Monsters of Folk Album
Update: According to Monsters of Folk’s camp, the Twitter announcement that the group is working on a new album was made by someone impersonating Conor Oberst. Though the band will likely record another album, the group has no current plans to enter the studio.
My Morning Jacket’s Jim James will make a solo appearance under his Yim Yames moniker on Valentine’s Day. The performance will take place at Louisville’s Rathskeller and will also feature Boosty Ann. Cocktail attire is encouraged and everyone in attendance will receive a special Valentine’s Day rose courtesy of Yim Yames. The show will coincide with the 10th Anniversary of Louisville Is For Lovers, an annual multi-band compilation that has profiled area musicians like Bonnie “Prince” Billy, My Morning Jacket and other.
My Morning Jacket is currently working on its next studio album. In addition, James’ other band Monster of Folk has started work on a new studio project.
