Jim James @ MHOW, 2/19/2013
My Morning Jacket's Jim James, who released his first solo album earlier this month, played a sold-out show at Music Hall of Williamsburg last night (2/19) with Dean & Britta opening. It was the first of two NYC area dates (a sold-out McKittrick Hotel gig goes down tonight, 2/20). In addition to the songs from Regions of Light and Sound of God, he threw in a few MMJ songs too, like "Wordless Chorus" and finale "Victory Dance" which featured an appearance from that band's Tom Blankenship. Photos from the show, including ones of both Jim and Dean's setlists, are in this post.
The shows were a teaser for a larger set of dates set to go down in April which will include a stop at another sold-out show, Webster Hall on April 29.
In other news, Jim James was recently added to Bonnaroo and also released a video for "A New Life", a new single culled from his recent solo effort Regions of Light and Sound of God. Check out that video as well as more pics from MHOW below.
