Live Review- Band of Horses 12-11-12 Hammerstein, NYC

Hey all,

Got a new review up on Glide.

Read it Right C'here!!!!

It is of Band of Horses epic double bill at the Hammerstein Ballroom on 12-11-12 in NYC.

We talked about this one a bit already as we had to give it special billing in our Favorite Shows of 2012 post. This is the full review though, you can see they played every song in their catalog except "Islands on the Coast" for some reason. 

If you are a fan of the band and had tickets to both shows you can simply not ask for anything more.  Intimate acoustic, loud rocking, the night had it all last way into the next morning.  Not known particularly as a great live band shows like this could really change that and hopefully open Band of Horses up to being more adventurous. 

This show was a doozy, pure Boosh, as you can tell.  Below are a few samples of videos people took. Thanks to the band for putting on a great night of music, and for Hammerstein for hosting.
"Wicked Gil" Acoustic Set


A rare treat, "I Go To The Barn Because", first time played and Bridwell struggles with it, but has the complete support of the crowd.

Here is the group's completely off the cuff take on "Simple Man", super cool:
