This video for Her Mercy was shot 2 years ago when Glen & band were recording in Chicago. They stayed at a hotel that’s attached to the cafe where my Big Kid worked. She had no idea they’d checked in but had been a Glen fan for years. She had her back to the counter while working on another order and heard a customer come up. As soon as he started talking, she knew it was Glen. She collected herself before turning around and even managed to not pass out. (*proud Mom moment*) They were there for several days and everyone was exceedingly nice.
Chef Jose Andres joined Glen Hansard and band to do his own take on a verse of The Auld Triangle. This was the last song of the show at The Lincoln Theatre on February 10, 2015.
Saw Glen Hansard last night at The Lincoln Theatre in Washington, DC. He generally does a couple of songs with guitar only and if possible, will sing in the crowd. The layout last night did not allow for that but he stood at the edge of the stage – Say It To Me Now & Gold.
