Adam Green @ Town Hall, NYC - May 10, 2008
Adam Green @ Town Hall

Adam Green, the beloved New York singer-songwriter with the deep baritone voice and quirky sense of humor, played his largest headlining show to date last Saturday at Town Hall. When he said on The View that he was playing there, I thought it was the perfect setting for him and it was about time. He may come off as this jokey musician with nonsensical lyrics to Joe Public, but from following his solo career, I knew he takes his music seriously. So, Town Hall suits him fine. [Music Snobbery]

Tim Fite and Laura Marling opened the show on Saturday.

Adam Green's next NYC show will be something much smaller. This info is posted on Rehab (formerly Club Midway)'s website....

The Smoking Section Presents: Bob Dylan's 67th Birthday Bash
Featuring: The Street Legal Six
Plus: Adam Green, The Pierces, The Hymns, Tracy Bonham, Nikolai Fraiture of the Strokes, Russell Simins and members of the Mooney Suzuki, Albert Hammond Jr.'s band and much, much more!

The Juno soundtrack is probably the main reason Adam can play a venue as large as Town Hall now (and why he was on The View) (and why Kimya Dawson is suddenly headlining Webster Hall).

Now now there are two Juno soundtracks. "Juno B-Sides: Almost Adopted Songs" is also streaming at Spinner (though this one has no Adam or Moldy Peaches, but it does have Kimya...and Yo La Tengo, Belle & Sebastian, and Ellen Page...).

And for even more Ellen Page: The Broken Social Scene-soundtracked film The Tracey Fragments is now in theaters.

Adam Green also has some shows scheduled with Lightspeed Champion, and he's playing all the places listed below....
