Vintage Cafe: Ray LaMontagne Gets Happy With The Pariah Dogs Live In 2010

Vintage Cafe: Ray LaMontagne Gets Happy With The Pariah Dogs Live In 2010

September 23, 2013 - Our Vintage Cafe is with Ray LaMontagne playing live with his band The Pariah Dogs.
It goes back to 2010 around the time of the release of his fourth album God Willin’ and The Creek Don’t Rise. Ray visited us with each album since his debut came out in 2004. Every time before this interview he had been reluctant to engage in conversation and was shy to the extreme. I wanted to highlight this particular stop by the Cafe because of the way a visibly happier Ray Lamontagne opened up. Not to mention the strong performances from the stage of World Cafe Live of songs like “Beg Steal or Borrow” and the classic "Trouble."

Session Setlist:
Beg Steal or Borrow
Old Before Your Time
Trouble
Repo Man


Recent Release: God Willin' & The Creek Don't Rise
Release Date: August 17, 2010
Label: RCA/RED
