Magnolia Electric Company at Headliners, 10/22

Mmm…set list.  If that doesn’t get you pumped up, what will?  On October 22, Jason Molina will bring his formerly Songs: Ohia entitled crew now called Magnolia Electric Co. to Headliners for a night of deep dark rock.  Born in Lorain, Ohio, Molina’s been one of the most prolific, affecting songwriters that I can remember making his own brand of troubled music and bringing it to the populace.  Songs and Magnolia have worked extensively with knob-twister par excellance Steve Albini (The Pixies, Nirvana, The Breeders, etc).  The Co are perfect for Albini’s deep bass and drum heavy sound, making songs that sound like they’re coming out of your subconscious to take over your memory.  It’s riff heavy and riveting.  All of this wonderful darkness can be yours for $10.  Kings Daughter’s & Sons as well as David Vandervale are going to show up as well.

Personal fav:

Songs:Ohia – I’ve Been Riding With The Ghost

Magnolia Electric Co. – The dark don’t hide it (live)



  1. I often wonder what happens to these setlists when the show is over. I wrote this one (I’m the other Jason in the band, the guitarist). This must have been Canada, August, 2005… do you remember where though? And Grand Buffet was opening for us? We played “13 Days” on this tour only, I think… cool to see the list again!

  2. Hey Jason, I just did a little more research on that setlist for ya. Looks like someone snagged it after the Starlight show on August 3, 2005. Great detective work! Can’t wait to see you guys in town.
