REVIEW: The Album Leaf @ WOW Hall (Eugene, OR – 2/9/10)

10th Feb 10 (Wed) Leave a comment Go to comments

 FYI… PHOTOS of the SHOW at the BOTTOM

So, I just saw The Album Leaf & Sea Wolf show up in Portland on Friday.  Last night’s show wasn’t much different… which means… highly enjoyable.  Since I’m in the midst of “work a ton because I chose the path of becoming a CPA and now is the rough work schedule” month, I’ll keep my comments brief – but include setlists and photos, of course.

The main difference for the Eugene show was the lack of string quartet – but where I was in the crowd for the Portland show, I didn’t get much of the string quartet in my ears anyway.  It was about a half-packed WOW Hall, which was good for a Tuesday.  Sea Wolf was great.  I was more familiar with their songs, and I really started digging them.  Same 45 minute set as Portland.

Sea Wolf’s Setlist:

  • White Water
  • Winter Windows
  • Dew in the Grass
  • Black Leaf Falls
  • Middle Distance Runner
  • The Traitor
  • O’ Maria
  • Turn the Dirt Over
  • Wicked Blood
  • You’re a Wolf

The Album Leaf came on around 10pm. I could definitely hear more strings this time around, even though there was only the primary violinist and not a whole quartet.  Again, that was more due to my location at Portland’s show.  They played the same setlist as Portland.  I was digging the new songs, as I had gotten a few days now to let the album sink in.  I could tell Jimmy was having some problems with his in-ear monitor during a few songs.  Overall, the sound quality wasn’t as good in Eugene as in Portland.  I moved around the venue and it seemed way more bass heavy than is normal for TAL.  All in all, though, a great set…


The Album Leaf’s Setlist:

  • Perro
  • Blank Pages
  • There is a Wind
  • Within Dreams
  • Falling from the Sun

  • Until the Last
