"Before you know it as the years go by, you're just like other people you have seen, with all those peculiar human ailments. Just another vehicle for temper and vanity and rashness and all the rest. Who wants it? Who needs it? These things occupy the place where a man's soul should be." -- Henderson the Rain King

Band of Horses Charity Concert @ Showbox

Tonight we saw Band of Horses play a special charity concert at the Showbox. The crowd was sparse but energetic. As lead signer Ben Bridwell put it 'we had moxie'. The thin but enthralled audience gave the show a personal vibe that's tough to find from a band capable of already selling out two shows at the Showbox this weekend.

While a lot of bands would be put off by the small crowd, Horses were exactly the opposite. Rather than playing 6 or 7 songs and calling it a night, they brought the house down playing old favorites, covers (including "You Never Even Call Me By My Name", an ELO song, and a song by The New Year) and new songs resulting in one heckuva set that lasted well over an hour. They were even gracious enough to come back out for an encore, playing the last two songs they knew well enough to perform live. All in all just a great evening with a great band.

I uploaded a few pics from the show to my Flickr account.
