The Day of Ryan

Sounds like you really meant it this time. I wish I could say the same about your father, who, by the grace of God, has stopped listening to me altogether. I felt smaller than Rome.

Last night's Ryan Adams show at Bowery was wonderful. I hope all the indie rock bands in town were there to learn about writing an actual song that stands up without having to hide behind a cool synth or guitar part. Sometimes all he had to do was sing over a drum beat and a staccato bassline and it was perfection. Some Zeppelin-esque numbers were bookends to country rockers and dirty garage sounds. I will always prefer the acoustic solo Ryan Adams to the rocker but I had a blast with his rockier repertoire choices. See below for the setlist (via Amrit.

"Love Is Hell”
“This Is It”
“Please Do Not Let Me Go”
“Cherry Lane”
“Note To Self: Don't Die”
“Peaceful Valley”
“Wish You Were Here”
“Magnolia Mountain”
“Easy Plateau”
“Hard Way To Fall”
“Let It Ride”
“To Be Young”
“Dear Chicago”
“Cold Roses”
“Beautiful Sorta”
“Call Me On Your Way Back Home”
“Come Pick Me Up”

Also present were Casey, Rachael, BrooklynVegan, and the "Other Wes" ;).

Tonight I'm going to see Jay-Z and then Sunday night of course is the Undisputed Heavyweights live EP recording night at Rockwood Music Hall at 9pm with Paula Valstein, Schram and Mike Grubbs.

I think the set made up for the rain and Bowery basement bar bedlam. B.

Heyyy, I think your comment on my blog was about this show because it was definitely the one with the effing annoying drunk bitches. I was the girl with the long blonde wavy hair like smack-dab in the middle in the front. You weren't by chance the guy I was trying to sandwich her out of the front with?? Hehe. P.S. I love your pic.
