A good time was had by all at the sold out Bonnie Prince Billy show at the Fry’s Spring Beach Club Sunday night here in Charlottesville. As much as I like his music, the live show provided something not heard on the albums. At the end of the night the beach club was a sweaty mess of beer laden folk.

Accompanying Mr. Oldham’s memorable stage presence was an eclectic mixture of musicians that helped hold down the beat. The band powered through what seemed like 20 or so songs, some off the new record and some old ones.

The Fry’s Spring Beach Club, where they played, is a throw back to neighborhood pool clubs of yesteryear. With its wood panneled walls and lack of modern air handling, it was an appropriate venue for the last show of their tour.
