"Opener The Tallest Man on Earth was a pleasant surprise, too. Playing solo with just an acoustic guitar, he overpowered the audience with a GIGANTIC voice that at times reminded me of JEFF BUCKLEY, though the sound was more akin to if Buckley was fascinated with Americana as opposed to NINA SIMONE, GENESIS and THE SMITHS." [The Big Takeover - review from the Philly show]
Thanks all for coming to the BrooklynVegan Northside Festival showcase at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Friday night (6/12). The lineup worked out perfectly. From 7-9, photographers and friends of photographers hung out around their pictures hanging on the wall. At 9pm, those who were there early enough and were interested in watching the music were wowed by the magical Dave Deporis (at least the people I talked to). His set was especially emotional due to the song dedications to his grandfather who passed away one day earlier. Then Olof Arnalds played to a much more filled in crowd who did not want to let her leave the stage, especially after the amazing Nina Simone cover she closed her set with. Earlier she covered Springsteen. Up next came the, to quote the above review, "gigantic voice" of the not-that-tall Tallest Man On Earth which was followed by the headlining full-band set by the one and only John Vanderslice.

amazing show! Olof and Tallest Man were particularly stellar, and her Simone cover was adorable.

"were those all the photos hanging up? seemed to be more at the show."

There were 7 sets of 7 in the basement and lobby. I think one set is missing from this.

how long did vanderslice play? his set at bowery on saturday seemed really short. he should have been the headliner. tallest man on earth was pleasant enough but pretty boooooring.

The Tallest Man on Earth was incredible the other night, completely upstaged Vanderslice. His band was tight, but he completely lacked the passion and energy that TTMOE had.

I saw both shows and I must say that TTMOE trully deserved to be the headliner at the Bowery Ballroom. Vanderslice was good but TTMOE was impeccable, it made perfect sense.

TMOE stole the show at MHOW. He was pretty damn amazing.

Congrats on what looked like a great show, wish I could have been there. I saw TTMOE at Bowery last time thru and was amazed and the showmanship that one man can bring to a stage with just an acoustic guitar. I think he's got many good albums still to come.
