Silver Jews

July 29, 2006

I went and saw the Silver Jews at the Duck Room last night. I thought it was a great show, even though I wasn’t at all familiar with their latest album, Tanglewood Numbers. It was a very high-energy from the beginning and David Berman was chatty and personable, even if he did look like a walking skeleton. The St. Louis show was the first in their rare tour of America and served as a warm-up show for their performance at the Pitchfork Music Festival. Definitely check them out if you get a chance…

Jennifer O’Connor proved a capable opener. She had a great voice, but I kept thinking that the trio’s arrangements would benefit from more elaborate instrumentation.

Here are some pictures from the show:
