Sheff and Caws

Field Music didn't make it, but there was a special reunion set by Pulsars, followed by the super duper Wye Oak who played before special guest Rumours last night at The Bell House in Brooklyn (12/3).

As advertised (at the last minute anyway), Rumours was a Fleetwood Mac cover band. Cover song experts Loser's Lounge made up the band and a rotating cast of singers came to the stage to play individual tunes. Those vocalists included Dave Hill dueting with Erika from Au Revoir Simone, Will Sheff dueting with Beth Wawerna, Matthew Caws, Britta, Sharon Van Etten, Wye Oak, and many more. The show was in honor of Bell House booker Skippy. Well, it was his birthday party, and he even came out to help perform "I Don't Wanna Know" with Mia Riddle. The full setlist (which did not include AC Newman or Eugene Mirman - both must be out of town) with a couple of videos below...

What a great show. Shame Field Music couldn't make it, but still a great bill at a great venue.

THE LOSERS LOUNGE RULE!!!! They were so good, and they're doing a Jackson Five tribute show later this month at Joe's Pub which is destined to be amazing. What an incredible group of players, and so much fun. Way to go. PS Happy Birthday Skippy!

Not sure why everyone is so blown away. The concept rules but it would've been better if they had done something different with the know so it wouldn't just sound and LOOK like very serious hipster karaoke. I heart Caws. Sheff cover is horrible.
