Iron & Wine at the Capitol Theatre - 5/19/13
Iron & Wine is currently on a tour with the Secret Sisters in support of his new album, Ghost on Ghost, which hit NYC last week (5/14) at Beacon Theater and then circled back to the area for a Port Chester show at the Capitol Theater this past Sunday (5/19). Pictures of the latter are in this post.
For the tour, Sam Beam is being backed by a 13-piece band, and also takes some time out of his sets to do some solo acoustic material. Both NYC-area shows saw him playing the bulk of Ghost on Ghost in addition to a good amount of earlier material, but he had some surprises thrown in there too, including his cover of The Postal Service's "Such Great Heights" at the Cap show.

Sam Beam returns with Ghost on Ghost, his fifth Iron & Wine album and first for Nonesuch. It hits shelves on April 16. The record was produced by longtime collaborator Brian Deck and if "Lover's Revolution," the first released track from it, is any indication it will be a jazzy, horn-filled affair. You can stream that track and check out album art and track list below.
Two years after Garden Ruin, Calexico has returned and is offering up Carried To Dust, the new full-length record due September 9, 2008.A Ticketmaster presale for the Webster Hall show starts today at 10am. (password?). Regular sale starts Friday at noon. All Calexico tour dates, and the new album tracklist, below....
For Carried To Dust, Calexico co-founders Joey Burns and John Convertino called on a rotating cast of musicians and friends to help them create what is arguably their most varied and strongest work to date. The band lineup that solidified around Feast of Wire is back again, along with a number of guests, including Sam Beam, Douglas McCombs, and Pieta Brown.
