Feist @ Bonnaroo 2007 (CRED)
I’ve also toured with Feist, but now that I’ve established my journalistic integrity we can dispense with formality. She’s a first-rate guitarist and musician who is inspiring some cult-like devotion from her fans.
I didn’t hear cheering anywhere else like the cheering for Leslie Feist — she’d arch her eyebrow and the place would blow up — which always makes me wonder what the heck is going on. Her songs are minimalist and inventive, and she has a good voice and a good ear, like a PJ Harvey who’s not so mad at boys, but the rabid fandom is usually about something else. She must be code for something that I haven’t figured out. [John Roderick]
In today's installment of 'Indie Rock Orgy'....
Ed really gets around....
Did anyone go to both Feist shows at Town Hall? I heard Kevin Drew wasn't there again the second night, but that unlike the first night, Ed Droste of Grizzly Bear sang backup on 1234.
Feist @ Town Hall, NYC - June 11, 2007 (MORE)
First of all, the Feist & Grizzly Bear show at Town Hall last night (June 11, 2007) was so good. I can't decide if it was the best Grizzly Bear show I ever saw, but it was definitely beyond a doubt the best Feist show I've ever been to (I've seen them both a bunch of times now). Feist's new material is so much more fun live - the old stuff still felt like the hits, but the new stuff was where it was at...

Grizzly Bear @ Town Hall, NYC - June 11, 2007
...and as if it wasn't special enough, (Leslie's boyfriend?) Kevin Drew came out to play Broken Social Scene's Lover's Spit with Feist - he didn't sing though - just played piano, but it still felt great.
A few more pics @ Flickr. More tomorrow.
Feist also mentioned she'd be playing 1234 on Conan today, and bringing some friends along to sing backup. At least some of those friends will be all four members of Grizzly Bear - her tourmates.
Feist didn't mention, but the little flyers they were handing out did, that she and Kevin Drew will be back to play a (NOT-free) show at McCarren Pool in Brooklyn on August 29th. Tickets are on sale Friday at noon, and the show is billed on the flyer as "Feist with special guest Broken Social Scene performing Kevin Drew's 'Spirit If...'".......
Feist & Grizzly Bear are now on tour. They hit Town Hall in NYC on Monday and Tuesday. The shows were sold out, but now some tickets are back on sale. (thx Ondal) Setlist from her recent Ottawa show on Flickr.
"Patrick Wolf is adorable, but so are the Carleton Singing Knights when they sing 'Magic Position'." [bassnowbrdr]
Patrick Wolf - Magic Position (A CAPPELLA)
In case you were wondering, Patrick Wolf's friends in Grizzly Bear ARE opening for both of the Feist shows at Town Hall in NYC (June 11-12). Grizzly Bear are also playing with the Decemberists and Land of Talk at Summerstage on July 16th. Land of Talk are also playing Citysol on July 14th.
The Carleton Singing Knights also do Grizzly Bear and Nellie McKay. Grizzly Bear practices in Williamsburg. Videos related to all these facts below....

Bright Eyes is bringing out a special guest at each of his seven shows at Town Hall in NYC this week. Many were dismayed by the appearance of Lou Reed at night one. Ben Kweller came out during night two, and I'm losing track, but Jenny Lewis was the guest at either night three or four, or both or something like that. I don't have a picture, but there is the recent video of Jenny on stage with Ben Gibbard & John Vanderslice, and here are some photos from October of Jenny on stage with Feist (actually the other way around).....

A full U.S. tour centered around her June 16th appearance at Bonnaroo is about to be announced any second, but in the meantime, as seen in this weekend's NY Times, Feist has announced that she'll be playing at least one NYC show at Town Hall on June 11th. The ticket presale for that show starts at Noon today (username: feist, password: tickets).

Amy Millan, Emily Haines, & Leslie Feist | Sept 10, 2006 (CRED)
"Though there was some great music and moments on the first day of the Virgin Festival, it certainly ended on a sour note and day two would have to be pretty much flawless to salvage the event's reputation." [Chromewaves - Day 1]
"As usual, the high point was "Anthems For A Seventeen Year-Old Girl1 featuring Emily Haines, Amy Millan and Feist together on vocals. Initially spread out across the stage, the three ladies of Broken Social came together as the song gradually built up and at it's peak, they were practically nose to nose and ended in a group hug. Come on, that's special." [Chromewaves - Day 2]

Jun 25, 2006: Feist & Jason Collett play Central Park Summerstage in NYC
Monsieur Gainsbourg Revisited comes out on February 27, 2006.
"Franz Ferdinand, Jane Birkin, Marianne Faithfull, Placebo, Carla Bruni, Portishead, Jarvis Cocker, Kid Loco, Françoise Hardy, Keith Flint, Cat Power, Michaël Stipe, Tricky, The Kills, Gonzales, Feist, Dani, The Rakes….All take part in the singular album of which it is a question here.
The bet was serious: to bring together artists resulting from the international scene to interpret English adaptations of the songs of Serge Gainsbourg. The casting and the various finally joined together versions exceed the hopes..." [joelearou]
UPDATE: The Modern Age has MP3s
Track list below...
This was my third time seeing Feist live, and after her band-less opening set at Bowery Ballroom, my expectations weren't very high. My only hope going in was that Feist would sing at least one duet with opener, and fellow Broken Social Scenester, Jason Collett. Not only did it happen, the show was everything I always hoped a Feist show would be. The band, energy, audience participation, song selection, etc, etc. was all great. The last song of the encore was the duet and the highlight of the show - Feist and Jason sang Broken Social Scene's "Major Label Debut" (on the same stage BSS played with Emily Haines and Lisa Lobsinger only three weeks earlier). Closet OC Fan has the audio.
