duncan sheik at the city winery

Great show. First, Duncan and Gerry Leonard played an entire Nick Drake album which was real mellow and great. Then he brought out a small collection of string instruments to accompany him on the rest of the set. Played his big hit, "Barely Breathing!" And also one song from the musical Spring Awakening, which he wrote.

City Winery is such a great venue. It's an intimate setting but is big in NYC standards for a smaller venue. Duncan Sheik will be playing there 3 more times over the upcoming weeks. He mentioned last night that his next show will be "a lot of 80's cover songs." Sounds good to me.
