Bijou Theatre: John Moreland (Full Band)
WITH OLD HEAVY HANDS
The replay of John Moreland’s network television debut is glorious and affirming and a sucker punch. He is announced by Stephen Colbert, lights dissolve, and the camera slowly focuses on the person midway across the unadorned stage, revealing him beneath muted blue lights. He is a big man. Seated, alone, cradling his acoustic guitar. He looks like nobody who is famous.
