Bowerbirds @ Bowery Ballroom
Bowerbirds

Bowerbirds played two sold out shows in NYC this weekend. Friday night it was opening for Elvis Perkins at Dearland at Bowery Ballroom (12/4). Dave Godowsky opened. The pictures here are from that show. Elvis Perkins went on to play Music Hall of Williamsburg on Saturday night (pictures and review coming soon), but without the Bowerbirds who instead played a packed Union Pool in the same neighborhood (with Sharon Van Etten).

Bowerbirds have a few more shows this year, and then a whole bunch in January and February. The two MP3s above are from their 2009 album Upper Air, released by Dead Oceans in July. All dates, a video of them playing a "Tiny Desk Concert" for NPR, and more pictures from Bowery Ballroom (with their setlist) below...
