The weather station released the fantastic Ignoring in February 2021, and after multiple pandemic-related postponements and another new album, she is finally on tour and stopped in New York on Tuesday night (4/26) for a show with Sam Amidon. Sam opened the evening with a solo set and, accompanied by his guitar and banjo, played some of his own tunes and some old folksongs, including “Time Has Made a Change in Me”, for which he led the crowd in a single.
Tamara Lindeman began The Weather Station set kneeling in the dark, giving a haunting, a capella rendition of this year’s “Stars” How come I should look at the stars. From there, she and her band embarked on a set that included most of the Ignoring, including “Better Now” and “Look” from the deluxe edition. “Robber”, for which she put on a jacket covered in fragments of mirror that reflected light, was a highlight (Sam Amidon joined on the violin for this one too), along with “Tried to Tell You”, “Parking Lot” and the two older tracks she played – “You and I (On the Other Side of the World)” from her 2017 self-titled album and 2015’s “Way It Is, Way It Could Be” Loyalty.
For the encore, guitarist Will Kidman dueted with Lindeman on How come I should look at the stars highlight “To Talk About”, which they followed with beautiful renditions of “Subdivisions” from Ignoring and another from his self-titled album, “Thirty.” A beautiful sight all around.

The band will return to New York this summer to support Mitski at Radio City Music Hall on July 22-23.
