New Pornographers @ Bell House

Only caught the second half of The Dutchess and the Duke and unfortunately couldn’t get into their set. The songs weren’t polished and felt they were just a little “off.”

Super lucky to see The New Pornographers at such an intimate setting. Although the shows have become predictable, when Neko joins the stage it’s hard to pass up a night of super catchy songs. They played many of the classic hits and that many new ones from their somewhat boring new album. We got lucky to have Dan Bejar join then and played many of the tunes he worked on. Despite being kinda drunk he came out for the encore and played “Testament To Youth In Verse” and a fitting version of “Slow Descent into Alcoholism.'”
