Are these with St. Vincent? Where did you see them? And thank you!


These are headlining shows, labelmates Husky will be opening. I saw these first on the Billions site and then Sub Pop, and I checked the venue sites as well. Only the Echo and Bottom of the Hill don't have Shearwater on their calendars as of yet. Also, some of the dates are going on sale this week, guessing the rest will follow shortly.

According to Ticketfly and Club Congress, Shearwater is also playing in Tucson on 7/12!

edit: looks like this one isn't happening after all, it's been pulled from venue calendar and is now listed as "off sale" on Ticketfly. Bummer.

St. Vincent tour starts tonight! We're seeing them on Saturday. Wish they were co-headlining, but I can't really complain.

We saw them a week ago. Christiaan was with his band Brass Bed at the NOLA Jazz Festival, so a former bandmate of Jonathan's was filling in on bass. He did admirably on ONE REHEARSAL (except the opening of Immaculate... awww) but I was surprised by how much I missed Christiaan.

The rest of the band was noticeably tighter. Lucas's vocals have improved - not that they were bad, but they're excellent now. And, honestly, JM's have too. Where Animal Life used to start in an uncertain falsetto that sounded like it was going to go off the rails any second, he now starts in full voice. There was a certain appeal to the old way, but it sounds more assured now. No surprises in the setlist, but we hadn't seen Snow Leopard yet this tour, so that was a treat.

If anything, the set was a little TOO assured and powerful. It gave the distinct impression that they were trying to blow St. Vincent off the stage. It was great for the converted, but I don't know if a more understated set would be more effective at getting new fans.

Unlike Sharon Van Etten, St. Vincent was not blown off the stage. I like Strange Mercy, even if nothing off it does for me what any song off Actor does. As a live performer, though, she is just amazing. Her cover of The Pop Group's "She Is Beyond Good and Evil" was magnificently deranged, more than anything I've ever seen her do. My wife nearly got run over in the rush to manhandle the crowd-surfing Annie during closer Krokodil, though. They skipped a song from the setlist and ended with a keys and vocal arrangement of The Party that left me more than satisfied.

I doubt that I'll see a better concert this year (and I'm seeing Radiohead next month).

I have an extra ticket to this Friday's Birmingham show with St. Vincent. All my friends have baled out to go to the Hangout Fest instead. I'll give away 1 ticket or sell the pair as I'm also going to the Raleigh show next week and don't know if I want to go by myself.

Hey, there's a special free duo show with JM and Lucas in LA Friday. I'm going to miss it by a hair, and that kills me. They're taking requests on Facebook.

A friend of mine filmed the show. He posted Dread Sovereign already.

Photos and setlist from Jonathan and Lucas' set in L.A. 06/01:

Red Sea, Black Sea (!)
Dread Sovereign
You as You Were
The Snow Leopard
Rooks
Run the Banner Down
Breaking the Yearlings
Animal Life
Hail, Mary

I almost don't believe that it happened. Although that's probably the caffeine crash and sleep-deprivation talking.

Looks like Shearwater will be opening for Dinosaur Jr. for some shows this fall:

Austin October 4: http://mohawk.frontgatetickets.com/choose.php?lid=70112
Flagstaff October 8: http://orpheumpresents.com/?e=1199

DinoJr are playing Detroit on September 27. I hope Shearwater are with them!

Looks bad for a headlining major US tour this year. (Oh you lucky West Coasties.) That's a shame. It's criminal and bewildering that they are depending on other artists to draw crowds.

I've just seen the guys in Stockholm. What a concert! I've seen them a couple of times before, and they are just somehow better every time I see them. Jonathans voice is amazing (amazing!!), and the band is just great. They did not quite manage to out-noise the last act I saw in that venue, but they did a pretty good job of it. For the record, that previous concert was Michael Gira acoustic - I don't think anyone or anything can beat Gira ;)

Photos from San Diego and LA.

The main set for both shows was the same:

The Snow Leopard
Castaways
Dread Sovereign
You as You Were
Insolence
Rooks
Immaculate
Pushing the River
Open Your Houses
Run the Banner Down
Breaking the Yearlings
Star of the Age

Encore for the San Diego show was White Waves and These Days. Encore for LA was Hail, Mary (started with Jonathan solo, ended with full band), Landscape at Speed, White Waves and These Days.

I'll probably have more to say when the tour's over, but right now I need to think about maybe packing before I leave tomorrow.

Main set is basically the same as the opening sets I've seen except for Open Your Houses, but man what I wouldn't give to see the LA encores.

I really want to hear OYH live. Have they ever done Believing Makes It Easy live? That's one of my favorites on the album... (but then, what isn't).

I wonder how many of the old songs they can do with this lineup. I'm surprised they haven't to my knowledge done Century Eyes.
