Here´s a brief review for what turned out to be a brief performance by Paul.
The first part of his 7 song set featured Paul with the New Bohemians as his back up band, apparently the first time he has performed with them. The first song was a humorous number that I don´t know, but was sung as a duet with Edie from the perspective of a couple who has been married for too long. I wish I could remember the lyrics, but Edie might sing ´You´re the reason I never go to the beauty salon´ and Paul would reply ´you´re the reason my hair fell out´. The chorus made mention of the kids being ugly.
The middle of the song was spoken banter between Paul and Edie
E: Why can´t you be nice to my mother when she comes to visit?
P: I am nice- the first two or three months
E: Is eight months too long?
P: A guy can only take so much Wheel of Fortune
Edie goes on a rant about NY being cold and she´s used to the Texas heat to which Paul replies ´the heat´s fine- if you´re a Pizza. I just thought a nice girl from Highland Park would...´ Edie cuts Paul off to say ´I´m not Highland Park, I´m Trailer park!´
Paul w/ the New Bos worked- they were pretty well rehearsed. The last two songs were done acoustically- Wartime prayers and BOTW. The first was quite lovely.
