The Magnetic Fields are a little over a week into their tour of City Winery locations, where they play multi-night residencies in each city on their itinerary. They started with three nights in Boston, and just wrapped up a four-show run in NYC, which included a show on Halloween night, where Claudio Gonson dressed as a penguin for the occasion. Their setlists have been just about the same each night, pulling largely from 69 Love Songs, and with plenty of material from their most recent album, 2020's Quickies, too.
Christian Lee Hutson opens the whole tour, and on Friday night (10/29) in NYC he brought out a special guest, frequent collaborator Phoebe Bridgers, to join him on "Lose This Number" from his new album, Beginners (which Phoebe also produced). A few nights before, Phoebe and Christian appeared onstage at Lucy Dacus' Brooklyn Steel show on Tuesday, where they, Tomberlin, and Bartees Strange joined her on "Going Going Gone."
