Iron & Wine
Sam Beame aka Iron&Wine played for 2+ hours to a crowd of mostly Americans earlier tonight at the Alhambra, a really great venue in the tenth arrondissement of Paris. For the most part his new album Kiss Each Other Clean has received less than stellar reviews for straying from his acoustic roots. Nobody seems to likes the saxophone. But tonight the saxaphone player made the show - if only because of his dance moves. Overall I think adding these elements has at least made for a better live performance. Still, singing Flightless Bird, American Mouth alone on stage barely strumming his guitar, Beame's acoustic encore was the highlight of the night.
