Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy @ Murmrr Theatre (night 1 pics & setlist)
Will Oldham brought Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy to Brooklyn on Wednesday for their first of two shows at Murmrr Theatre. He had a seven-piece ensemble, dubbed the “the Wandering All-Stars & Motor Royalty,” backing him, plus members of openers The Other Years on harmonies. His set included a particularly amazing version of “I See a Darkness” from the album of the same name that finally hit streaming services this year and which again appears on Songs of Love and Horror, his new album out 10/19 (solo acoustic renditions of songs from the Palace and Bonnie “Prince” Billy catalogs). He also has a new book of lyrics with the same name that just came out. Check out pictures from Wednesday’s show in the gallery above and setlist is below.
Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy plays Murmrr again tonight, and the tour wraps up this weekend.
