PICTURE THIS: A.A. Bondy @ Great American Music Hall, SF 8/31/12

September 03. 2012 | By Kelley Bennett

As part of an exclusive, four-date California tour, Birmingham, Alabama singer-songwriter A.A. Bondy performed at the Great American Music Hall on Friday night. The combination of dim stage lights and a backdrop projection of ocean waves created the perfect atmosphere for the dark, melancholy tunes that comprise Bondy’s latest release, 2011’s Believers.

Oddly, however, for the greater part of the show, it appeared that tracks from Believers were all he intended to perform, which even prompted one audience member to request he “play some old shit!” Despite the lack of variety in the setlist, Bondy’s unique husky vocals and excellent musicianship still made the night worthwhile.
