Sitch Sessions: Aaron Lee Tasjan, ‘Till the Town Goes Dark’

May 23, 2017


Pulling a tune off last year’s Silver Tears release, Nashville singer/songwriter Aaron Lee Tasjan puts his back to the San Gabriel Mountains and performs “Till the Town Goes Dark” on a Los Angeles rooftop. It’s an ode to the disillusionment forced upon the generations that grew up watching either The Jetsons or The Minority Report. “One day, they said the future was flying cars and a ride on a rocket,” he sings. “Time passed, and all I got was America Today and a TV in my pocket.”
