You never know what you'll get when you attend an EELS concert. One year it's vocoders and synthesizers, the next it's gritty garage rock. Cut to 2005: EELS leader Mark Oliver Everett, aka E, releases the highly acclaimed Blinking Lights and Other Revelations double album and assembles his most ambitious version of the EELS yet: a seven-piece band consisting of Everett backed by a string quartet, piano, and a trash can and suitcase drum set. Having brought this elaborate show to Boston the night before, can the EELS get to New York, play the David Letterman show, and perform their concert at the legendary Town Hall, which is being filmed for a concert film - all with grace under incredible pressure? The answer is yes, and the proof is here! Now you can have the best seat in the house. Enjoy 28 songs from all phases of the EELS' ten-year career, along with great songs by other artists as interpreted by EELS with strings, and rare backstage and behind-the-scenes footage of life on the road with EELS. No tickets, no parking hassles, no drunk guy blocking your view. Just the spine-tingling performance of EELS WITH STRINGS, LIVE AT TOWN HALL. Performed live at Town Hall, New York City, June 30th 2005.
