Live: The Broken West @ The Troubadour, 2.24.09

All photos by David Greenwald

I’ve been a fan of L.A. locals the Broken West since 2005 but hadn’t had the chance to see them live — until Tuesday. The power-pop act stuck mostly with tracks from last year’s slick Now Or Heaven; the songs were energetic live, but the band could’ve done with some of the sweat from their earlier work, gracing us with only one I Can’t Go On, I’ll Go On standout and an earlier tune from their debut EP. Still, Ross Flournoy has golden rock ‘n’ roll vocal chords, the kind Jeff Tweedy once sang about — the kind never heard enough. More photos after the jump.
