Does anyone have details on this Billy Bragg thing? Everything I've seen online is kind of confusing. Is he playing a solo/headline set, and if so, what time?

ANNA CALVI + Daniel Wayne at Le Poisson Rouge! Two of the best new (and powerful!!) voices in the game.

Very good. Liked Psychic more than Disappears. Psychic played for about 45-50, first, then Disappears for about an hour.

Who is the tattooed face dude?

Yeah, just from hearing their albums Psychic should've been the headliner instead. Those guys rule.
