Joanna Newsom, Robin Pecknold @ Orpheum Theater, Los Angeles 7/31/10

Photos of a sold-out show on Saturday in L.A. by Joanna Newsom (complete with standing ovation and a female would-be-stage-crasher blocked by security), with an opening set by an apologetic Robin Pecknold of Fleet Foxes, paranoid that his voice wouldn’t work properly after having quit smoking. (Of course it did, and also CONGRATS ROBIN everybody in NYC is quitting, too, because American Spirits are like $12.50 a pack.) Last night in Oakland, Robin joined Joanna on a cover of “Picture,” that Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow song, because huh? But also, great! So we have video of that below (via Fluxtumblr), and also these shots for you by Andrew Youssef.

Additionally, just announced: Joanna’s bringing her harp-shaped baroque musings to Carnegie Hall, for a show 11/23 (tix on sale 8/9), and she’ll be on Kimmel 8/11. The rest of her dates after this Joanna/Robin “Picture” vid:
