REVIEW: Peter Mulvey & Jeffrey Foucault @ Sam Bond’s (Eugene, OR – 10/24/10)

25th Oct 10 (Mon) Leave a comment Go to comments

Summing Peter Mulvey and Jeffrey Foucault‘s travelling show in one word would be: “authentic.”  This was round two for me (link here for my Friday Portland review with photos); so I’ll keep it short and sweet.

They hit the stage at Sam Bond’s around 8:45 and played two great sets.  The show was partially more of the same, but don’t take that the wrong way… it was definitely not a disappointment.  Switching off on vocal duties, about a half originals and half covers.  They also switched up about half of their setlist from the Friday show… great show as usual for these gents.  Quite a talky crowd, but still a bit more subdued than a normal Sam Bond’s crowd.

Setlist: 90+ minutes

  • Set 1: Starlight and Static (Jeffrey on vocals, new tune)
  • Kids in the Square (Peter on vocals)
  • Mesa, Arizona (JF)
  • The Obvious Child [Paul Simon] (PM)
  • Pretty Girl in a Small Town (JF, new tune)
  • Shirt (PM)
  • Last Night I Dreamed of Television (JF, new tune)
  • Some People (PM)
  • Goners Most (JF, new tune)
  • But I Do [Bobby Charles] (PM)
  • Set 2: Everybody Knows [Leonard Cohen] (PM)
  • City Flower (JF)
  • Ithaca [Redbird] (PM)
  • Tulsa Time [Don Williams] (JF)
  • Duncan and Brady [P.D.] (PM)
  • Late Season (JF)
  • Diamond and Gold [Tom Waits] (PM)
  • Tea and Tobacco (JF, new tune)
  • Sad, Sad, Sad, Sad (and Far Away From Home) (PM)
  • 4 & 20 Blues (JF)
  • Encore: Tecumseh Valley [Townes Van Zandt] (PM/JF)
    thanks to Eric for JF new tunes/song identification

Re-posting Friday’s NEWS from the stage:

Jeffrey Foucault has a new album out called Cold Satellite. Peter Mulvey has recorded a new duet instrumental album with longtime collaborator David “Goody” Goodrich – release next year(?). And the Peter & Jeffrey collaboration with Kris Delmhorst and Goody called Redbird has a second installment on the horizon. It’s already been mastered (woot!), and the last four songs will have the explicit tag in iTunes. It was recorded live, but they didn’t mention live in studio or live on stage. I guess we’ll see.

Kris Delmhorst (Jeffrey’s wife, fellow singer-songwriter) is coming to Eugene… Tsunami Books on Saturday, November 6th – 8pm.  Make note!

    Great review and photos!

    Here’s some of the missing song titles:

    “The Ghost of James Dean” – Starlight and Static (Not yet released)

    “Last night I dreamed of television…” is the correct song name. (Not yet released)

    “crying down the valley” – Passerines (Not yet released)

    “I’ll have one more then I’ve gotta get some rest… I’ve got love I can’t hide” – Real Love (Not yet released)

    “tea with honey, tell me who bent the branch inside of you” – unsure

    “hard as flint, lacked the spark” – unsure

    “peaches in August turn to apples in fall” – Late Season (Cold Satellite)

    “whiskey from a tin cup… tea and tobacco…” – Tea and Tobacco (Not yet released)

    Two songs and east coast CD release tour dates for Cold Satellite are available at http://www.coldsatellite.com
