Conor Oberst & M Ward @ Town Hall, NYC | Jan 26, 2007 (CRED)

M Ward played Town Hall in NYC Friday night.

First time seeing him live, and I was not disappointed. He actually surpassed my expectations, which is difficult to do. I knew how good of a finger-picker he was on the acoustic, but his piano playing is equally as proficient. As for the voice, man it just explodes in a live atmosphere. However, his lyrical deliver never seems forced. I was just amazed how naturally the words just flowed out him. [Bob Mapplethorpe]

Frequent M. Ward collaborator Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes) showed up for the last song of the encore. Bright Eyes also needs you (California people) to be in his new video:
