Vic Chesnutt and Elf Power

Last week Phil and I went to the Vic Chesnutt show at Cafe De la Danse. Teitur opened the show followed by Elf Power who also acted as Vic's backing band.
Teitur played amazingly beautiful singer songwriter fare. He explained that he didn't usually play these songs on a guitar(It was just him and a guitar) instead he was a piano guy. Regardless, it sounded great.
Elf Power was next and they sounded great.
Finally Vic Chesnutt took the stage and put on a great show. He and Elf Power made a record together and the majority of the set was from the ew album but he did dip into his back catalog a few times. Vic was very candid and chatty between songs covering subjects from Micheal Stipe and the recording of his first album to Independence day.
