Earlier today at the noontime hour, lucky denizens of the city of brotherly love got a treat from Ryan Adams and the Cardinals, sounding fantastic and amiable on NPR’s World Cafe. From a friend who was there, the report comes in that “Ryan had on a suit and tie and black sunglasses the whole time, a very John Cusack look.” He also is still not playing guitar due to a torn ligament — but definitely not as bad as that broken wrist from falling off the stage in Liverpool. Check out this fine little setlist, and for those of you who have heard Easy Tiger — whaddaya think? The album is out June 26th from Lost Highway.
