The Last Time I Saw Paris

Caught the incomparable Willie Nile (and band) at the Highline Ballroom in NYC last Friday night.

Apart from the best live version of "Sweet Jane" ever heard by sentient mammalian ears, the high point of the show (for me, anyway) was, alas, a newly relevant rendition of "Holy War," from the great 2013 album American Ride.


Sending this out as a prayer for humanity. God Bless France.

I shot some video at the show on Friday, but it didn't turn out to be watchable -- the live version of "Holy War" above, done under more professional conditions, makes the point, however.
