Live PB & J

Saturday night marked the 10th "birthday" of the inception of Peter, Bjorn, and John as a band. They celebrated this achievement by concluding their tour at Club Nokia. The set list provided crowd favorites from their latest "Living Thing" as well as 2007's break out record, "Writer's Block".

Highlights of the night included Los Angeles, via Cincinnati, musician Boom Bip joining the boys on the bongo drums for a rendition of "Young Folks", which also included Lykke Li on guest female vocals. The "Always Sunny in Philadelphia" adopted theme of "Nothing to Worry About" was impressively backed by a chorus of ladies, that the boys seemingly referred to as "The Los Angeles Women's Choir". Seemed like I lost something in the translation, as these ladies were probably more specific to a chapter in our fair city.

I always like catching the last night of tours. It feels like the last day of class, or watching your friend graduate or get out of jail. Saturday night was no exception. After the show, the band graciously hung out at the merch table to autograph items for their adoring fans. A great wrap up, to a great "birthday" tour.

Check out "Sitar Folks" below, as well as some photos from Saturday's show.
