Prick Tunes: Damien Jurado "Amateur Night"

While searching for a usable video of his fantastic "Ohio" off of what is still my favorite Damien Jurado album, 1999's Rehearsals for Departure, I elected to go with what may be his darkest song, "Amateur Night" from 2003's Where Shall You Take Me? his first release on Secretly Canadian.
To qualify this song as dark is an understatement of severe proportions. The quiet chaos that looms underneath comes to bear at the close of "Amateur Night." Dark fucking lyrics. Urban folk at its most disturbing.
