When we last spoke with Matt Morris for this week's profile, he was understandably excited that his first headlining gig tonight at the Bluebird tonight was nearly sold out. Since then, of course, the show has actually sold out. Don't have tickets? No worries. You can still catch Morris tomorrow night at Twist & Shout (2508 E. Colfax Ave.) at 6 p.m. for a special hometown in-store appearance. The performance is being recorded for another possible installment of Live at Twist & Shout, which has already seen releases from Ben Harper, Matisyahu and Jason Isbell.
UPDATE: Just received word the Alice 105.9 is planning to add "Live Forever" to its playlist on Monday.
