This image is awesome, couldn't find an author!

I've had some requests for recent Iron & Wine sets but haven't had much luck finding any. However, this set is a real treat for anyone into the acoustic stylings of Sam Beam.

You have to love how Sam handles these solo shows. The guy makes mistakes but the way he rolls with the punches is admirable, personable, and makes for a unique experience.

This show lands on the 2 year anniversary of the deadly shooting at Northern Illinois University, my alma mater. This concert took place in Wheaton, which is pretty close to NIU, and before the last track Sam throws out a dedication to the students before going into a haunting rendition of "Dead Man's Will."

Iron and Wine Sam Beam Chicago SchubasDrawing by Amouse

Woke up this morning to 'nam style rain (as my bro-in-law would say) and absolutely zero urge to get out of bed. But, after I got that first cup of coffee in me I was ready to move and start thinking about music for the day. I immediately starting thinking about strictly acoustic stuff, maybe some Jeff Tweedy, maybe some Ryan Adams, perhaps some old school Jim James? But then, I remembered the brand new Iron & Wine record sitting in my office waiting to be played and dialed up some good ol' Sam Beam, just him and his Taylor.

This set accompanies the last Iron & Wine post, at the Lakeshore Theater, which was recorded the evening before (and I was at). He played a couple of REALLY intimate sets here in Chicago and we were lucky enough to get them recorded right.

Check out the latest from Iron & Wine, Ghost on Ghost, and go see them on tour, Sam Beam is a great performer.

Toss this on, make some tea, and gaze out the window.

This was one of the finest moments of my concert going life. Sam Beam, one guitar, 300-ish people in a comedy club on the north side of Chicago. He was funny, sincere and turned every heart into a frail piece of glass ready to shatter at a notes notice.
