Seeds of Compassion

Dave and Tim played a benefit show at the Key Arena, Seattle, WA on April 11th for Seeds of Compassion. Before the show Dave interviewed the Dalai Lama. He about his nervousness during the interview, “Everyone told me to be myself, and myself was nervous!” Death Cab for Cutie opened for the pair, a surprise to all in the crowd as they were a last minute addition.

The show was incredibly special… I was just so overwhelmed by “Sister”. With no tapers for the show, I went out immediately to get Dave & Tim Live at Radio City to preserve the magic.

Honestly, I’m sitting here trying to think of how to express the emotion of this experience, to share it. I just can’t. It will live forever, cherished, in my memory. My experience, my own, untouched and unshared.
