Town Hall Portastatic


M.Ward played an immensely enjoyable solo set friday night at Town Hall in NYC. highlights included Carolina on piano, a guest appearances by Pat and Rachel from Oakley Hall and Conor Oberst joining Matt on o'brien to finish the show. the crowd was incredibly, reverently quiet and could be said to have been enraptured at times i think. as far as our set, it was more fun (ie less nerve-wracking) than i thought it would be, and Margaret and I had a polite reception. it was great to play such a nice-sounding room in front of a packed house...here's the set:

Bye bye pride
Noisy night
Sour shores
Sweetness and light
Angels of sleep
You know where to find me
Cunning latch
You blanks
San andreas
I wanna know girls

Word. Carolina on piano. That song has made many of my friends devout converts of Mr. Ward.

I'm straight up excited for The Camera Obscura show in Seattle!

I for one thought the Portastatic set was excellent, and twas nice to see you in such a massive/famous place. I was up in the front of the balcony, and everyone was completely hushed and focused around me. Lovely version of Bye Bye Pride.

And, my lord, that M. Ward can play the guitar. Damn.
