Band Of Horses Play At A Wedding

By Will Oliver, September 8th 2010 — with 2 comments

Wish there were more news stories like the one of Band Of Horses surprising a couple by playing at their wedding.

It all started when the husband proposed to the wife at a previous Band Of Horses show in Norway. They then realized BOH were back in town the day of their wedding and wrote to them to share the odd coincidence, hoping the band would consider coming. They didn’t hear anything back, until minutes before the wedding when the band surprised everyone by making an appearance.

They played a pretty version of their very appropriate “Marry Song”. Now that is quite a story.

Band Of Horses @ Grand Central Station, For Free!

By Will Oliver, June 19th 2010 — with 4 comments

Thanks to the AOL Pop Up Series, Band Of Horses played a rocking set in Vanderbilt Hall, located in Grand Central Station in NYC. I got to the 42nd street entrance at 4:00 and there was already a solid line of 75-100 people waiting. I had no problem getting in though, and got a a great view. They handed out free t-shirts and posters which were made specifically for the special show. Once I got in, someone actually recognized me from one of the photos I posted on here. He is a reader of my blog, and I gotta say, it was damn surreal talking to someone who was a reader of my blog. Really awesome feeling. I had a great time talking to him, and I’ll hopefully catch you at a show another time dude!

Band Of Horses came on promptly at 6:30 as promised and they looked genuinely happy to be there playing for us. They played mostly stuff from their new album Infinite Arms, but playing plenty of the fan favorites from their first two albums. The sound inside Vanderbilt Hall was incredibly great, giving the band a really great clean sound. All the songs had a harder bite to them live, probably due to the fantastic acoustics in the hall. The songs from Infinite Arms took on a new life live, which I was glad to see.

The true highlight at the end of the show were the old cuts from Everything All The Time & Cease To Begin. I spent a lot of time with “No One’s Gonna Love You”, “The Great Salt Lake”, and “Is There A Ghost”. Hearing them live brought back some good times. The band ended their set with “The Funeral”, and all I can say is wow. The song is even more unbelievable live. It was powerful, reflective, and full of emotion. I rediscovered my love for the song last night, and I don’t think I will ever have to search for it again.

I know Band Of Horses latest album has been getting some mixed reviews, but please don’t let that stop you from ever seeing this band live. They are a great live band.

We’ve posted about the free Band Of Horses show over the last few days, but got no officialy word, until now. The band posted a tweet confirming that the show is going to take place at Grand Central Station, as weird as that is. The show will start at 6:30 p.m. , but you will have to arrive a lot earlier than that, as it is first come, first serve. The line will apparently begin at the 42nd St Entrance.

I take a train from where I am, straight to Grand Central, so this is literally perfect. Good luck getting there, say hello if you see me on line! (You can’t miss me, trust me).

If you become a fan of them on facebook, you have a chance of being one of ten lucky facebook fans who get to cut the line. Add them here. Winners will be selected and notified by 3:30 pm, tomorrow.

Band Of Horses Playing Free Show At…..Grand Central Station?

By Will Oliver, June 16th 2010 — with 2 comments

Band Of Horses hinted at a free concert on their twitter account yesterday, and now they gave us a picture (posted above) that pretty much seals the deal about the free shows location. The posted image is one of the statues on Grand Central Station. Now, I don’t know how they are going to pull it off there without it being a complete mess…..unless it is just another clue? What I mean is, Grand Central isn’t too far from Bryant Park.

As for time, BrooklynVegan says it will be at 6:30. Makes sense considering one of their tweets said “friday. rush hour”

If I get anything more “official”, I’ll post it.

Band Of Horses Hint At Free NYC Show This Friday!

By Will Oliver, June 15th 2010 — with 1 comment

Today Band Of Horses tweeted the following message on their twitter:

“We’re playing a free show in Manhattan on Friday. Watch this space for details.”

Before that tweet, the band posted a mysterious tweet with a picture of middle NYC (see below) and a message saying “Friday. Rush Hour”

So we know it’s in middle Manhattan, but no official location has been disclosed. Bryant Park and Central Park seem like possible locations. We will have to keep any eye on Band Of Horses twitter for more clues. Hopefully this show won’t be full of crazed bearded men who will force the NYPD to cancel the show…..

[video] Band Of Horses – Laredo (Live, Letterman)

By Will Oliver, May 21st 2010 — with 2 comments

Band Of Horses stopped by Letterman last night to play “Laredo”, a song off of their latest album Infinite Arms. Seems that many people are experiencing mixed feelings about this song and the rest of the record. Either way, I enjoyed the performance:
