“I can stay awake all night”

I caught Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy in Alexandria, VA over the weekend and thought it a terrific show.  Will’s brother Ned opened the set in the duo Old Calf which was also very good.  Oldham’s band was really excellent: great singing and very tight.  They even played Glenn’s and my favorite selection from the Superwolf collaboration.

As a further sample, here is one of my favorite tracks for a rainy day:  Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy – “Raining in Darling” from I See a Darkness (1999)
