      ..Welcome to the new Watkins family hour myspace page. Being that we're taking the fall and winter off from Nickel Creek touring, Sara and I are stepping it up at Largo and doing a lot more shows. So I figured it might be time to try to let more folks know what's been going on with us there and what's on the horizon. For the last four years Sara and I have had a residency at Largo, an uber cool but cozy music and comedy club in Hollywood. We play at least once a month, sometimes more depending on our touring. Its always Sara and myself, usually Gabe Witcher on fiddle, and a group of others including, Benmont Tench, Greg Leisz, Jon Brion, Michael Witcher, that show up when they are in town. Also we've had Jaskson Browne, Dan Willson, Glen Phillips, Mark O'Connor, Ethan Johns, Matt Chamberlain, Tim O'Brien, Gemma Hayes, Tom Brosseau. Although we have a pretty good repetoir built up by now, the show is usually put together on the fly backstage between, sound check and showtime. Its always a ton of fun. And if the music isn't to you liking, Ellen at the bar will make you a killer martini. I promise that. So, here we are..... We'll do our best to keep posting pics and video. The videos up there now are from earlier this month, i think the 6th.... with Greg, Benmont, and Michael. Thanks to Loren Witcher for taking them. Thanks to you guys for checking us out. see you soon hopefully. -sean........Review from LA Weekly:..........Thursday, 9:08 p.m.: "I figured, how can I come to Largo and not sing a
      folkie murder ballad?" Willie Watson (of Old Crow Medicine Show) is moonlighting in his two-piece band, Tractor Beam, during the
      Watkins Family Hour. It's an elegant, high-class hootenanny. Candles in
      mason jars glow like fireflies on the tabletops as he drones on about the
      lovelorn suicide of a butcher's daughter. I find his nasal howl equally
      suited to sorrowful crooning and pig calling. I'd like to be wearing a
      bonnet.....
      Thursday 9:27 p.m.: Things get adorable. Another Watkins (and fellow Nickel
      Creeker), Sara, has just stepped onstage in a calico baby-doll dress,
      bearing a ukulele. The crowd hardly breathes as she plucks a few strings and
      begins to warble some song about a pony in a voice too delicate and gorgeous
      for the mortal world. As she picks up a fiddle, I suffer through a
      philosophical quandary: Would I rather be her, or marry her? She's joined by
      her brother Sean and a smattering of local musicians for a foot-stomping set
      that includes Bob Dylan and Tom Brosseau covers. When local duo the Ditty
      Bops guest on a few numbers, the old-timey adorability reaches ridiculous
      levels.......
