Reviewed - Bowerbirds

Paradise Rock Club - Boston, MA

Last night I headed to the Paradise Rock Club to see Bowerbirds live for the first time. After their recent release, The Clearing, turned me from a casual fan into a passionate one, I had high expectations for their live show. The fuller sound of the album was present immediately on stage, as the group (now including a cellist, second guitarist, and drummer) ran through the majority of their latest disc. Aside from a few past favorites, including "House of Diamonds," "Northern Lights," and "In Our Talons," the set was very focused on displaying new material. And thank goodness, their new sound translated extremely well live. Especially on set closer "Tuck The Darkness In," the building energy on the record was expanded and made even more powerful. The group even started a few songs over due to little mistakes. One may think that would detract from the performance, but it in fact made the show more genuine and raw. I urge fans of the folk group to see them live, hopefully while they still play a great deal of the new album. It is exquisite.
