Justin Townes Earle at Webster Hall 5/17/12
Justin Townes Earle

For one, nothing was that loud, as if Earle were daring the room to speak over his band's music (although he wasn't). From the moment Earle started the set alone with "Wanderin'," which he dedicated to Woody Guthrie ("Wherever he is," said the singer-songwriter), until the pedal steel-backed "Ain't Glad I'm Leaving," he calmly slipped into the full-band set. By then the smoke had made its way to the stage from the machine in the back, the starry Webster Hall background had been lit and the scene looked much more ready for Earle to pick things up a bit, which he did, in his own unique way.

Justin Townes Earle is currently on a tour with Tristen which stopped in NYC last Thursday (5/17) for a show at Webster Hall. More pictures and videos from that show are below...

Almost every song was a midtempo rocker. JTE was much better when he stuck to blues and bluegrass, now he just sounds like a mediocre version of his day. There's no energy or urgency anymore, what a shame. He used to play entire sets that had the intensity of the song he closed with, now it's all a dit dull.

Justin Townes Earle and Jason Isbell on one stage is almost too much for me to handle at once. Awesome singer/songwriters. I have so much respect for both of these guys.
