    Weblog Post #250 (AKA what I saw on Saturday)

    Chris and I caught an in-store by Devendra Banhart at the Newbury Comics on Newbury Street Saturday afternoon. The show started early, but we saw most of it, including the last couple songs when Devendra thought it would be a good idea to stand on the table and dance around with his guitar.

    If you want to get a sense of his live performance, Spin Magazine has a few streaming video clips of his show at the offices of Spin last April.

    Later on Saturday, the Brazilian Center of New England (Inman Square, Cambridge) hosted Vetiver, Joanna Newsom, and Devendra. Stacie did a superb job organizing the show. It was sold out and all parts ran smoothly, including the post-show breakdown when I helped pack up cords and audio equipment, and generally tried to stay out of the way of Joanna Newsom's massive harp.
