Nathaniel Rateliff at Lost Lake Lounge, 10/21/10

10.21.10 | Lost Lake Lounge

Nathaniel Rateliff struck a delicate musical balance in his tribute to Leonard Cohen Thursday at the Lost Lake Lounge. His two-part solo performance spanned several albums and eras from Cohen's storied musical career. Armed simply with a nylon-stringed guitar, a music stand and a thick ream of transcriptions, Rateliff offered covers from 1968's Songs, 1969's Songs from a Room and lesser known albums like Live Songs from 1973.
