Rodriguez at Beacon Theater - 4/7/13
Rodriguez

Folk singer Rodriguez, who was once a cult act but is now getting kind of famous thanks to his Searching for Sugarman documentary (which won an Oscar), brought his tour through NYC on Sunday (4/7) for a sold out Beacon Theater show. Pictures from that show are in this post. He also plays another NYC show at Town Hall on Wednesday (4/10) (sold out), the Cushman and Wakefield Theater at Barclays Center on October 9 and Radio City Music Hall on October 10. Tickets for the October shows are still available.

At the Beacon Theater show, which Jenny O. opened, Rodriguez was joined by a 5-piece band, Rodriguez played songs off of both of his full length albums, 1970's Cold Fact and 1971's Coming from Reality, and worked in some covers, like Bob Dylan's "Like A Rolling Stone."

Before the Beacon Theatre show, there was a screening of Searching for Sugarman at MoMA, which included a Q&A with director Malik Bendjelloul. A video of that Q&A, along with more pictures and the setlist from Beacon Theater below...
