Like any hidden romantic alcove, urban legend has it that if a lover whispered at one corner of New York’s Grand Central Terminal. His or her message will reverberate in exactness at another corner at the mammoth transportation hub.
To test that myth, online presence AOL sponsored a free concert last Friday featuring Band of Horses. More than 200 fans packed into the Vanderbilt Hall as Ben Bridwell, Ryan Monroe, Tyler Ramsey, Bill Reynolds, and Creighton Barrett performed the latest from Infinite Arms, the band’s third LP. Airy and tempered, audience gently rocked to the melancholy ballad on lovers’ chance encounters in The Factory to the surreal lyrics of Infinite Arms. Though no one will be certain about the urban legend, Band of Horses certainly facilitated a magical evening to start the weekend.
