And while I'm talking about Alec Ounsworth, I thought I'd post the pics from the performance he gave (with band) as Flashy Python and the Body Snatchers the other night @ Joe's Pub (June 22, 2006). I was at the late show (he played an early one too).
Alec is a great song writer and performer, and it was nice to his other side - the side that's not Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. The CYHSY side is nice too though, so I was happy to hear him play Details of the War and that Cigarettes song. Overall the show was great, mesmerizing at times, and much better than what I remember from his performance as The Pelican Picnic at Mercury Lounge (I'm sure the setting had something to do with it). Some songs really stood out this time, but I don't know what they're called. He closed with a Loudon Wainwright cover.
