Steve Earle and Allison Moorer played one of the first shows at the newly-opened City Winery in NYC on Thursday night (1/8). It wasn’t just any show though. It was a “pairing”…

“Pairings is a unique ‘blend’ at City Winery: an intimate concert series served with fine wine that will take place on City Winery’s main stage every Thursday evening, starting in January 2009. Each concert will be preceded by an optional tasting or private dinner, followed by personal performances from some of today’s most respected musicians.”

Suzanne Vega and Lenny Kaye play the next Paring on January 15th. Then Mike Doughty & Tony Scherr Trio, and then Jill Sobule & Julia Sweeney.

Venue owner Michael Dorf (of Knitting Factory fame) made an introduction, and then Steve Earle‘s set kicked off with “Christmas In Washington” which included a multiple minute story about Obama and the upcoming inauguration followed by “My Old Friend the Blues.” The rest of his 90-or-so minute set was spattered with old (“Copperhead Road”, “Jerusalem”, “Guitar Town”) and new (“Down Here Below”, “Tennessee Blues”, “Days Aren’t Hard Enough”).

Allison Moorer opened and then later joined her husband Steve on stage for some songs. Her set ended with a cover of Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come” which had everyone cheering, when she said during the intro, “It is nice to have a new president that can…talk.”

Earle also mentioned his next CD will be an album of all covers by his friend Townes Van Zandt (RIP) who his oldest son, Justin Townes Earle (also a musician), is named after.
