After The Walkmen’s Hamilton Leithauser crooned the country-rocker “From a Silver Phial” and the album-closing “Lady of the North,” the whole ensemble returned for an encore that kicked off with a vibrant rendition of The Byrds’ jangly “I’ll Feel a Whole Lot Better.” The crowd cheered heartily when Legrand stepped out from the chorus line to deliver a truly arresting lead-vocal performance on “Hear the Wind,” a gorgeous country-folk ballad from Clark’s Two Sides to Every Story. Finally, The Byrds’ classic “Eight Miles High” opened with haunting a cappella harmonies before Scally intoned the song’s familiar bassline, Strohmeier’s twelve-string guitar riffs and Mike Lowry’s percussion steadily intensifying into an epic crescendo. As the musicians traded verses and frolicked about the stage, their camaraderie and enthusiasm were infectious, festively capping a stirring celebration of Clark’s music. – [DCist]

The above review was from Friday night’s DC stop on the Gene Clark ‘No Other’ tour, which featured a live recreation of the former Byrds’ 1974 album featuring Hamilton Leithauser of The Walkmen, Victoria Legrand of Beach House, members of Wye Oak, Lower Dens and more. The next night (1/25), the tour hit NYC for it’s first of two shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg. A review and a first set of pictures are here and another set of pics are in this post.

Pics from Sunday’s show (1/26) are here. More of Saturday’s MHOW shows (Pt 2) below…
