AA Bondy

AA Bondy's 2009 tour dates wrapped up Wednesday, December 9th at Bowery Ballroom (where the pictures here are from).

After a month off for Christmas, Bondy's 2010 touring gets going January 8th in Memphis, and currently the last date on that trip is a newly annoucned Brooklyn show at Union Hall on Saturday, February 6th. Tickets are on sale.

At the Bowery Ballroom show, Bondy and band were joined by two members of Elvis Perkins' band on stage (you can spot them in the pics). Elvis, who played the same venue a week earlier, was in the audience (unfortunately he didn't also join in). Highlights included the Elvis band portion (marching drum and crazy trombone included), times when AA would rock out complete with rock moves, and "Vice Rag" during the encore (complete with audience participation foot stomping).

In addition to tracks from his latest disc, his second album When the Devil's Loose (currently on sale for $5 on Amazon.com), Bondy also covered Hank Williams's "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry." More pictures from the show, and a video, are below...

I loved this show, and A.A. Bondy is awesome, but The Duke and the King stole the night. They were so amazing live. Holy cow.

Willy Mason, The Duke and The King and AA Bondy were all terrific. Amazing show all around.

Who was the drummer for Bondy? He pretty much killed it...i mean what drummer plays pedal steel too?

That would be Ben Lester. He's awesome.
