For a man who used to cut solo albums while calling himself the Palace Brothers, Will Oldham (who now cuts ’em as Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy) found a kindred and contrarian spirit in the Cairo Gang–who is naturally one feller, Emmett Kelly. The two released a collaborative album earlier this year, Wonder Show of the World, that was a decidedly low-key affair. For tonight’s Town Hall performance, they are expanded into a six-piece, so expect a bit more of a din from such a gang. With the Babblers.
