Devendra Banhart @ Webster Hall, NYC | pics (part 1)

Devendra Banhart @ Webster Hall

The Devendra Banhart show last night at Webster Hall (October 20, 2005) was a who’s who of “freak-folk.” The Hairy Fairy band includes members of Espers, Currituck Co, and Vetiver. Special guests on stage included Tarantula A.D., Cocorosie, Bunnybrains, and Devendra-regulars like Will. Antony was name checked.

I’m a huge fan of artist collaboration, especially with Devendra. Unfortunately I think he’s taken the recreation of the 60’s thing too far – not because I can’t dig it, but because the stage show is ruining what we’re there for in the first place: the music. I didn’t feel any of the magic last night.

This doesn’t mean I’m giving up on Devendra. Maybe he needs some rest. Maybe the sound wasn’t that good at Webster Hall. Maybe the band drank too much magic punch. Maybe I was really tired (I was). The recent CMJ show at Bowery was actually pretty tight.

Stay tuned for more pictures that better capture the craziness. Bunnybrains & Tarantula AD opened.

UPDATE: danfun felt what I did
