Walkmen final show

The Walkmen announced their “extreme hiatus” on Black Friday — though, as the extensive Walkmen profile we published today explains, that break was a long time coming — which made last night’s show in Philadelphia at Union Transfer their swan song, at least for now. The setlist was short, sweet, and career-spanning, with 13 songs in total, one for each year since the band formed. Sun Ra Arkestra helped out with horn parts on the first two numbers, and from there on out it was these five guys who’ve given us so much great music playing together one last time. Below, find fan-made video of opener “Red Moon” and a moving two-song encore including “138th Street” and “We’ve Been Had.”
