Phosphorescent @ Rough Trade NYC - 11/30/13
Phosphorescent

Phosphorescent, the indie folk collective fronted by Matthew Houck, has been having an excellent year with Muchacho already ending up on year-end lists. He's got three sold-out full band shows at Music Hall of WIlliamsburg and a not sold-out solo show at that venue coming up, but to preface that, Matthew took Thanksgiving weekend as an opportunity to play a mostly-solo show at Brooklyn's new Rough Trade NYC. It was one of the venue's free in-stores and happened this past Saturday (11/30) with Matthew being joined by a keyboard player for a couple songs and otherwise playing by himself. Pictures of that in-store are in this post.

It was the same day as an in-store from Marissa Nadler and also the second night of Television's 2-night run which we caught night 1 of. If you haven't already, you can read our initial thoughts on the venue.

Short but sweet set by Matthew.
What a unique voice he has.
The venue is great! They will probably do better with ticket sales for shows than the album/record sales in the store. Very cool space.

Didn't know Louis CK had a band now.

As expected, The BK version of Tower Records. Not hating on it, just saying.
