The Tallest Man on Earth @ MHOW (more by Kyle Dean Reinford)
The Tallest Man on Earth

The Tallest Man on Earth completed a two-night run of shows in NYC last night (4/15). Tuesday's show was at Union Hall. Wednesday was a headline gig at Bowery Ballroom (pictures coming soon). On tour with Red Cortez, Tallest Man has just two US shows left - a coffee shop in Alfred, New York on Friday, and a spot at SUNY's Culture Shock Fest on Saturday.

After that it's back to Sweden (probably), but not for long. The Tallest Man on Earth is the second band confirmed for the BrooklynVegan Northside Festival show at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn on June 12th. The first band confirmed was John Vanderslice. More artists TBA.

Other Northside shows at MHOW include The Hold Steady, Bill Callahan, and Asobi Seksu who are also playing with Yann Tiersen at Irving Plaza tonight (4/15).

Vanderslice/Tallest Man tix are on sale, or you can go the badge route.

Bowery show was nice last night, found Red Cortez a tad underwhelming, but they put forth a good effort

I enjoyed Red Cortez, and tallest man was phenomenal. However, the crowd was almost completely silent which I felt killed the show's vibe. It was like watching a freaking tennis match. Some dude got mad at me for tapping my foot... WTF?!?!

TME's set was phenomenal. A great show. It's amazing how captivating he is considering it's a solo-acoustic folk show. Lots of skill on guitar and personality on-stage taboot.

Incredible show all around. I for one was absolutely blown away by Red Cortez. Very intriguing band.

I loved RED CORTEZ! TMOE was great too! I thought The Bowery show was one of my favorite concerts of the year so far. I left a ver happy girl Wednesday night.

Will more bands be announced for this date, or is it only John Vanderslice and Tallest Man playing? & are they playing equal set-times?
