Bill Callahan at Bimbo’s 365
Bill Callahan's fans revere his idyllic, strong, and genuine exchanges of humanity. Last night’s show at Bimbo’s was a perfect set list of favorites dating up to a decade back. Setting off the evening with the romantic “Anniversary,” Callahan’s intensity silenced the room. His audience was devout, truly captivated and not even whispering between songs. He’s a deadpan man proffering affective, stoic folk with a story and soul. Everything slightly heightened live, from his smooth, deep man’s voice to the strings being piercingly beautiful and impactful. And while the audience thought that they couldn’t be so fortunate, Callahan indulged his people with the humble yet consuming “Let Me See the Colts” closing his encore.
