New York 2019 [no label, 2CD]

Night 1 of the 2019 Hanukkah Residency. Live at the Bowery Ballroom, New York, NY; December 22, 2019. Fairly to very good audience recording.

Thanks to larryrulz for sharing the show at Dime.

larryrulz noted:

My first YLT show. Fun times. On track 01, Ira changed the lyric to “From me to Jews” in honor of the holiday. When Steve Gunn entered the stage before track 11, audience members starting yelling out Grateful Dead song titles, including Wharf Rat. As the opening act Steve and William Tyler did a Jerry Garcia cover (Mission in the Rain), which led to a bunch of audience requests for more Dead songs during their set. So Wharf Rat was an audience request.

  2. A great band and their annual Hanukkah run…in New York, where yesterday a maniac attacked people celebrating the holiday in a Rabbi’s home.

    I just can’t wait for all the kind words you ass holes have this morning.

    To most readers here I say Happy Merry Everything! I hope you’re enjoying the season with family and friends and great tunes.

    To all the fucking racist bigot ass holes who have found each other here- FUCK YOU!
