Uptown Manhattan will never be quite the same after Fleet Foxes and the Cave Singers did a two-night stand at the magnificent United Palace Theater on May 18 and 19. We were there on the 19th.

It was a beautiful even, full of revelatory performances — despite the marginally horrible sound that is pretty much the norm at the otherwise lovely United Palace.

I knew Fleet Foxes would be fantastic. I never could have imagined how wonderful Cave Singers would be, however. The far exceeded my expectations, cranking out amazing sound from their three-man lineup.
