Iron & Wine, plus Sam Beam’s beard, take over the Midland this Saturday
The last time I saw Sam Beam live – two years ago, when he was touring in support of Kiss Each Other Clean – his set stretched near the two-hour mark and devolved into something dangerously reminiscent of a Christopher Cross adult-contemporary jam session.
The show reviews for Beam’s latest tour, in support of his recent Ghost on Ghost, suggest that Beam has reeled himself back in. That’s a relief. Tickets for the Iron & Wine show this Saturday at the Midland can be found here.
Also: Beam continues to have a highly impressive beard, a fact that I feel is always worth mentioning.
