The Lumineers at Bluebird Theater, 5/11/12


THE LUMINEERS @ BLUEBIRD THEATER | 5/11/12

Wesley Schulz announced that the band was going to perform a Sawmill Joe song and it was obvious much of the crowd knew what was coming, as The Lumineers started the song and brought Joe back on stage. Between pretty much all the members of the band, a great wave of joy issued forth: The Lumineers and Sawmill Joe performed a song that more than a few people in the audience seemed to know and join in on at least the choruses.
