Glen Hansard and guests play Brooklyn Steel
Sunday night in Brooklyn and there is no room for anyone else at Brooklyn Steel. Glen Hansard‘s show sold out a long time ago and for a very good reason. Hansard was on fire, and tore through 3 hours of material old and new, with openers August Wells and special guest David Keenan (who brought the house down). A magical night amongst friends and music lovers.
