Video: James McCartney visits Durham

Posted by on Fri, May 31, 2013 at 5:38 PM

Alternating between piano and acoustic guitar, James McCartney played solo Thursday night at the Casbah in Durham. McCartney is currently touring the Southeast, playing small clubs behind his debut LP, Me. The release showcases a collection of breezy pop numbers that at times touch on the abstract. The Durham crowd welcomed McCartney but seemed a bit unsure of what they were witnessing. The treat was an hour-long performance by a musician not likely to visit this area very often; still, he's a talented singer-songwriter and rangy instrumentalist who happens to look a bit familiar.
As the evening came to a close, much like any other performer playing an area for the first time, McCartney stood in the back of the club, thanking people for coming to see him. He signed every autograph.

Below is a number from last night's performance—"Life's a Pill," from Me.

A single noise complaint doesn't mean that they have to leave. Central Park is not and never will be silent.

It sounds like one rotten ingredient spoiled the soup last night. I wish Batala Durham luck in obtaining a permit …
