AC Newman

"the show, Newman's first solo show in 3 1/2 years, felt more like a party than anything else. And it was a good one. His band on Saturday, six-strong, included a violinist, a accordionist/trumpet player, and the lovely Nicole Atkins on backup vocals and percussion. I'm not sure that this is the official band that Newman will tour with next year once the album is out (surely Atkins won't be) but they seemed to have it together." [Sound Bites]
Nicole Atkins, who headlined her own show at Bowery Ballroom just one night earlier, also appears on Newman's new album. More pictures from Saturday night's show (11/15) below...

This was a fantastic show. Band was remarkably tight for a first show.

This show was amazing! The new songs sounded seamless with the older songs. I can not wait for this album.
