Bill Callahan @ the Allen Room - 2/8/2012
Bill Callahan

Following performances by a diversity of musicians including Keren Ann and Thurston Moore, Bill Callahan continued Lincoln Center's 2012 American Songbook Series last night (2/8) at the Allen Room, a show Mr. Callahan said seemed like an appropriate finale to his "Apocalyspe Tour." Here are some pictures.

tUnE-yArDs plays the series tonight (2/9).

In other news, Bill Callahan recently covered Leonard Cohen's great ""So Long Marianne" for a MOJO Magazine covers CD. Listen to that, with more pictures from the NYC show, below...

That blonde girl the guy is chatting up was really hot. Almost as good as Callahan.

"Crap show."

Enlightening. Maybe next year they'll book GWAR for you.

It's funny he almost "talk-sings" and yet there is something totally compelling about his voice. Phrasing perhaps...absolutley first rate band though, will go see them if I ever have chance!!

"Apocalypse" stands heads and shoulders above every record put out in 2011. Anyone who doesn't agree is either . . .

A) Too young to know better
B) Ignorant
C) Has bad taste
D) All of the above

This looks EPIC, as in "boy, the Titanic was an epic journey"

Guy has to be the most consistently amazing live show I can think of in the last 20 years. One question - how does he always have THEE MOST amazing musicians playing with him?? The guitarist is as ridiculous as the drummer.

@2:10 probably because any musician who knows anything about the American songwriting tradition would cream their pants to play with him. The guy has been putting out consistently great records for 20 years now.

7:06/10:30/11:39/2:10/3:11 are very wise people.

I hope to join you all once again the next time Bill comes to town.
