Devendra Banhart & Hairy Fairy @ Webster Hall


There was a very big family vibe last night at Webster Hall. It may be because Devendra mentioned "the Family" about a dozen times or it may be because a large amount of the family were there. Last nights show felt Devendra was holding a party for all his friends and family were invited. One of the great things about Devendra live performance is his ability to act as the host. Devendra is often egger to share the stage with his band mates and even members of the audience. Hairy Fairy are as important to Devendra s he is to them. One can easily draw comparison between Devednra's Hairy Fairy and Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder Revue. And if Devendra is Dylan than Andy Cabic must be Rambling Jack Elliot. Andy and Devendra have toured a lot together and he continues to be an important part of Devendra's show. Andy Cabic performed one his songs last night that was amazing. In many ways last nights show was a big success of Devendra it was his biggest New York City show to date and the crowd responded very well to it. I was very pleased to see the large crowd at Webster Hall enjoying themselves. However there were also a lot of flaws with last nights show. Sometimes it seems as if Devendra is more concerned with having fun than with how the music actually sounds. And last night was one of these times. Although some of the songs were better than they were at CMJ a few weeks ago others seemed to be a little sloppy. But I will not hold this against him, overall the show was very fun and I continue to believe that only better thing lie ahead for the leader of this freaky family of folk musicians. On my new rating scale I give this show 2 socks rocked off. Which means it was good and fun, but of the 8 times I have seen Devendra perform it was not the best.

I absolutely adore Cripple Crow. ADORE IT. I've still not seen Devendra live. You better believe I'll be beating the door down when he comes back to Portland.
