With live music having returned to New York, Warsaw Brooklyn finally reopened its doors to fully vaccinated crowds for Andy Shauf’s sold-out two night run on September 9 and 10, 2021. Tomberlin opened both nights with lighthearted stage banter and mellow acoustic tunes, lending to the venue’s naturally intimate atmosphere.
After closing its doors during 2020 for the pandemic, Warsaw Brooklyn finally brought back their famous pierogis and reopened their stage for the starting leg of Andy Shauf’s North American tour. Shauf’s latest album, The Neon Skyline, had only come out in January of 2020 when their scheduled tour had to be postponed due to the pandemic.
Tomberlin opened for Shauf on both nights at Warsaw, playing some of her hits, including the sorrowful but sweet song, “Seventeen.” She also invited the crowd to sing along during her performance, which went over well as she smiled and sang along with her captive audience.
Shauf’s latest album gained some extra attention when the title track of his latest album, The Neon Skyline, was featured in Barack Obama’s Summer 2020 Playlist. Shauf’s setlist included several tracks from The Neon Skyline as well as highlights from the preceding album, The Party.
