Bright Eyes @Town Hall, May 29th

Hell, I just saw Bright Eyes last night. What else can I say? First, sitting in the front row can make a world of difference!

Tonight's special guests were The Little Willies featuring Norah Jones. I had seen them before at the very same venue, opening for Ryan Adams.

The Little Willies and Conor sang "We Are Nowhere, and It's Now":

I quite liked it when Conor knocked over his mic stand and decided to lie on the floor and sing into it and play the guitar, rather than picking it up.

Gillian Welch and David Rawlings opened again. Rawlings is quite the virtuoso on his Stradivarius-looking guitar.

They all joined the stage again for various encores.

Perhaps the key to tonight's success was the ensemble cover of Neil Young's "Helpless" -- always a crowd-pleaser:

And being at the front also means getting the setlist is pretty much a given...

Thanks, Easter Bunny! Bwok bwok!

PS -- Spotted Craig Wedren in the crowd. We saw him open for Bright Eyes in March.
