The New Pornographers At Terminal 5

The New Pornographers played a crowd-pleasing show to a very enthusiastic sold-out house at New York's Terminal 5 last night. With five albums now (including the recently released "Together"), songs that they have played in past shows had to be dropped in order to make room for the new material.

Despite the obligatory emphasis on playing the new songs from "Together," the New Pornographers played a good mix of songs. The older songs ranged from "Sing Me Spanish Techno" (the show's opener) to the title tracks from "Twin Cinema," "Mass Romantic," and "Challengers" (their previous album); "Use It," "Jackie," "The Slow Descent Into Alcoholism," "and the show's final encore song, "The Bleeding Heart Show."

Songs from "Together" included "Crash Years," "Your Hands (Together)," "Silver Jenny Dollar," "My Shepherd," and "Sweet Talk, Sweet Talk."

Great show, and it's always good to see Neko Case playing in the band.
