Cass McCombs @ Bowery Ballroom - January 25, 2012
Photos & Video: Chloe Lee

On Wednesday night, the enigmatic Cass McCombs performed a headlining show at Bowery Ballroom, as the singer continues his tour behind last year's two LPs, Wit's End and Humor Risk. Our photographer Chloe Lee was there for us and her photos adorn this post. Here is what L Magazine had to say about the performance:
"But even more than familiar/unfamiliar songwriting, the lure of Cass McCombs’ music is still that slightly dusty, slightly bittersweet, super world-weary croon. His voice was very high in the sound mix. We never saw his face, but his presence in the room was overpowering. And on something as pretty as “County Line,” extended forever, draped over that elegant bass part, it seemed like he could keep cycling through its heartbreaking melody for days. On the right song, you might not even mind if he did." - Jeff Klingman
Cass will continue on with his tour with Frank Fairfield through the beginning of February, and will play a few dates in England in March. Check out the remainder of his tour dates, a set of photos from the night, as well as an exclusive video of Cass McCombs shot by Chloe below...
