The Magnetic Fields @ Beacon Theater
Magnetic Fields

“Though Merritt performs much of the music on his studio albums himself, the live incarnation of Magnetic Fields has long featured Claudia Gonson on piano and vocals, cellist Sam Davol and guitarist John Woo, all of whom where in typically elegant form [at the recent Friday night LA show]. The core group was augmented by vocalist/ukulele player Shirley Simms, whose presence tilted the set list toward songs on which she has appeared over the years, including “Drive On, Driver” and “No One Will Ever Love You.”” [LA Times]

Like they did in Chicago, the Magnetic Fields are playing two shows in NYC as part of their current tour. The first of those was last night, 4/3, at the Beacon Theater with Devotchka who open for them at the same venue tonight. The setlists have been pretty similar on this tour, so check out what they played in LA (which Chris remembers as being about what they played in NYC), under the pictures from Tuesday’s NYC show, below…
