Steve Earle

A very pregnant Allison Moorer joined Steve Earle for a few songs during her husband's two-hour acoustic show Friday night at the Society for Ethical Culture off Central Park West, a block from Lincoln Center.

The gig came during a brief respite back in their adoptive hometown, between legs of a tour promoting Earle's new album of compositions by his hero, the late Townes Van Zandt, whose songs he's now teaching to legions of new cultists.

Arguably America's greatest living songwriter laughed as he noted that "Townes" has become one of his best sellers, "which in a way is discouraging cause I didn't write any of the songs on it." [Borough 6]

David Broza (with help from guitarist G. E. Smith) opened the show and is playing again on Christmas Eve at 92Y. More pictures from the show with Steve's setlist, below...

What a show. This was the best concert I've ever been to and I have seen a few. A total joy to hear the music of Townes Van Zandt performed Steve. I believed every word of it P.S Steve's songs where also up there in the quality zone. I think Steve is taking this music to the next level and introducing it to a new audiance. The Revelution Starts Now baby.

David Broza A G.E Smith performing original songs composed from lyrics left to David in a shoe box by the late great Townes Van Zandt. Oh man could a night get any better. I can't wait for the February 2010 release of Davids new album. The songs he and G.E. Smith perfomed that night did honor to those lyrics.

Thanks Steve.

The whole Snow LP is pretty solid. And these guys easily sold out 3 NYC shows already.

^^^Maybe these are scalpers upset about the T5 addition?
