Phosphorescent @ Music Hall of Williamsburg

Any show overseas carries that extra special element. Especially if that show happens to be in a city as dramatic as New York. When that show happens to be Phosphorescent then it's a double whammy. This was certainly an extra special night. Even more so as it was solo. There were to be three more shows at the Music Hall of Williamsburg that were all sold out and full band shows. But we picked the solo show hoping it would be really special. And it was!

"Muchacho" is easily one of my favourite albums of 2013 and it was a distinct pleasure to see these songs, and older ones too, played solo on electric guitar in such a beautiful setting. Matthew Houck would prove to be a gracious host and very generous. Basically the whole night in Brooklyn was near perfect. When you can write a song as great as "Song For Zula" then that is probably expected. And then when you cover Vampire Weekend I was floating on air.
