Band Of Horses @ Carnegie Hall 6/11/09 (pics & setlist)

I had the chance to make my first ever visit to Carnegie Hall tonight to catch Band of Horses play an acoustic show. After a couple quick frosty beverages in the Carnegie Hall museum (got a little history lesson, saw a lot of autographed pics) we settled into our seats to see BOH take the stage about 9:15. The combination of it being an acoustic performance and being in Carnegie Hall made for a impressive performance that highlighted lead singer Ben Bridwell's vocals and the bands' haunting overall sound. They played around with a few tunes, playing 'Weed Party' a little quicker than usual and 'Wicked Gil' a little slower. The latter got a heckle from an audience member who shouted "Pick up the pace." To which Bridwell slyly responded, "We're gonna slow it down for you guys a bit" before launching into a stripped down version of 'The Funeral'. It was a fun show in a new and different setting. More pictures and an attempted setlist under the fold.
