As just about anyone who populated the High Noon Saloon last Sunday night can attest, the sweetly soulful, mellow sounds of Bowerbirds in a live setting are nothing short of spectacular. The North Carolina-based indie folk headliners were not, however, the only band who successfully mesmerized the eager ears of the audience. Performances by opening acts Peter Wolf Crier and Sharon Van Etten no doubt earned the respective artists a great many new fans as well.
We’d like to share a few still photos (by Shelley Peckham) and live video (from Justin Kibbel) to remember the night by, as well as a link to listen to the full album stream of Peter Wolf Crier’s latest release, Inter-Be. Enjoy!

“This is a remarkable album, quietly riveting, translucently pure, and infused with eccentric intelligence.” Dusted Magazine’s Jennifer Kelly on Sharon’s latest album, Because I Was In Love
Sharon Van Etten has one of those rare voices that cuts straight to the hearts of her listeners. Following in the vein of beloved indie gals like Cat Power and Jana Hunter, Van Etten creates songs that (to borrow a phrase) float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.
Naturally, we’re more than a little excited to get to see her perform live in Madison at the High Noon Saloon this Sunday (Jan. 17th) when she opens for Bowerbirds. (Tickets for that show are still available here.) To find out more about this incredible artist, check out Alex Schaaf’s recent “6 Questions” interview with her (plus a free mp3 download!) over at Muzzle of Bees.
Hope to see you at the show on Sunday!
