Conor Oberst & M Ward @ Angel Orensznz

Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes) joined M. Ward on stage last night (Feb. 5, 2006). They played one song together. M. Ward, who sold out a venue three times the size two nights earlier, was acting as unannounced opener for Jenny Lewis' NYC solo debut. The Angel Orensanz Foundation building is a beautiful old temple in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. They really need to have more shows there.

really expensive to do shows there that's why they don't do more. i wonder if the jewish owners of the building took issue with the jesus hoedown that ended the night.

Great shots, and an outstanding show. Any Jenny pics coming soon, BV? It was a perfect setting for some first class shots!

M Ward played (not in order, I might be missing one too): Lullaby + Exile, One Life Away (with Jim James), Fuel for Fire, Outta My Head, Radio Campaign and O'Brien's Nocturne (from End of Amnesia) with Conor Oberst.

I *think* it was "Obrien/Obrien's Nocturne" from his album End of Amnesia. Sadly, it wasn't "Vincent O'Brien" which I was really hoping he would play. And the song you have streaming there in the comments is "Sad, Sad Song" from Transfiguration of Vincent.

thanks for the correction. I'm horrible with song names and remembering set lists.

the jewish owners? JENNY LEWIS is jewish, and presumably so is MATT WARD.

"Angel Orensanz is a Spanish-American artist who exhibits all the world."

"This structure witnessed the birth of the Jewish reform movement in America, but the after the decay of the Yiddish Lower East Side after World War II, dozens of synagogues and other significant structures disappeared.

Angel Orensanz bought this venerable structure in 1986, first for his own studio, and then to make it again a beacon of education and culture in the city of New York. The Foundation produces every year several cultural events such the Heinrich Heine Festival, the West Belfast-New York City Festival, Berlin Transfer (a symposium of philosophers and scientists with the Senate of Berlin), the Installation Art Award and publishes Artscape, a quarterly of the arts."

Wonderful show, one of the best I've ever seen. I am somewhat Jewish, and while it was odd, I am aware of more than one reform /progressive temple that uses a church as a synagogue, and the AOF was a reform temple, so it seems reasonable. Still, it an interesting twist, the mixed religious messages. I know that when Churches cease to be churches they are deconsecrated, I imagine there is a similar Jewish practice.

Actually only Conor is in Bright Eyes. M. Ward playing mostly solo and alson in She&Him and Jim James is from My Morning Jacket and they are all collectively know as Monsters Of Folk. And, on the religious note, I'm fairly sure that none of them ascribe to any particular faith.

Every body understands that our life is not very cheap, however we require cash for different issues and not every man gets enough money. Thence to receive some loan or just credit loan would be a proper solution.
