Beth Orton at Bowery Ballroom – June 2003

beth orton

What I wrote about this show a few years ago:

This was a last minute show at the Bowery Ballroom that was added after the Field Day Festival fallout. Bright Eyes and Jim James of My Morning Jacket were also on the bill. Beth was my favorite performer of the night. It was my first time seeing her – I had passed up seeing her live in San Francisco and Chicago a few times over the past few years, which I now completely regret. She closed with “Feel To Believe” aka one of my favorite songs ever.
