Michelle Branch celebrated her new LP at Webster Hall w/ Patrick Carney (pics, setlist, videos)

This past Friday (4/7), Michelle Branch released her first album in 14 years, the indie/alt-minded Hopeless Romantic, which was co-produced by Patrick Carney of The Black Keys. It’s quite a triumphant return, and she celebrated it with a release show at NYC’s Marlin Room at Webster Hall. That’s an intimate show for Michelle (though not as intimate as the semi-secret Bowery Electric she played in January), and it not surprisingly sold out well in advance.

Like at the Bowery Electric show, Michelle was backed by Patrick Carney on drums and Jake Blanton on bass, though the Bowery Electric show also had her backed by the two core members of Tennis (who are on tour now and couldn’t join her at Webster). She played a good chunk of the new album, and also her early hits like “Breathe,” “All You Wanted,” and “Are You Happy Now?”. In the encore, she did a stripped-down solo rendition of her biggest hit, “Everywhere.” Check out videos of all those, plus the setlist, below. Pictures are in the gallery above.
