Twin Shadow (A.K.A. George Lewis Jr.) reconfirmed his status as one of my favorite live acts with his show at the Village Underground on Wednesday. From the solo acoustic rendition of "The One" to start the show, through the many new songs he played off his forthcoming third CD (including new single "To The Top," above), to the most incredible (and loud) version of "Golden Light," the show may be the reason my ears are still ringing, but it was definitely worth it.
Preceded by an excellent Sodo sourdough pizza topped with Cobble Lane Cured meats (and a less successful dish of baked white beans) at the George & Vulture, and the dangerously delicious Tokyo Collins at underground cocktail bar Happiness Forgets, the gig was a perfect end to a night that sums up why London is such an incredible place for food, drink, and live music, even on a random Wednesday night.
