Heart it Races from the same show in Louisville:

A&T: Iron & Wine – Boy With A Coin, Flightless Bird American Mouth
Date & Venue: 2010-05-04 Paramount Theater – Charlottesville, VA
Taper & Show Download: Craig Davis

These stage names sure can be confusing. Samuel Beam aka Iron & Wine tours both with a band and sometimes solo. But then again, he also goes by the name of Iron & Wine. Anyway, this is a solo show, and man… look at the video below to see just how small a solo act with one light can look on a big stage. One gig on the books right now for Iron & Wine: September 11th at the End Of The Road Festival in the UK.

In addition to Kung Fu, the jam scene’s hottest new fusion act, being on the bill – they were also joined by: HT Contributor Wyllys with special guest Rob Marscher, friends of HT Newton Crosby and Jennifer Hartswick was also in the house.

Artist & Title: Local Natives – Shape Shifter, Warning Sign
Date & Venue: 2010-05-07 Bowery Ballroom – New York, NY
Taper & Show Download: nyctaper

I normally just scan bt.etree.org and the Live Music Archive for tracks for this weekly feature, but after double-checking with the guy that runs nyctaper, I’m happy to say I’m going to start pulling some tracks from that site as well. If you like this column, you’ll love nyctaper. Not only does he supply free live recordings of rarely taped bands, but there’s always a short review attached as well. Check out this bit of info…

We saw the band on Friday, where in the middle of their set they performed the Talking Heads cover that appears on their album (”Warning Sign”) while David Byrne himself peered down approvingly from the Bowery balcony.

This cover and a tune from the bands Gorilla Manor release are included in the embedded audio. Local Natives play tonight in Columbus, OH.

    Stellar work as always! I caught Local Natives the night before that recording at the Bowery and Warning Sign was definitely one of the highlights of the show. I read that David Byrne showed up the night that this was recorded. Seeing Dr. Dog this weekend with Deer Tick, can’t wait!!!

    I love “Shadow People.” Definitely my early favorite song on the new Dr. Dog album.
