28 Feb 2013: The Allen Room — New York

The loss of Ari Picker’s mother in 2009 greatly informed Lost in the Trees’ second album A Church That Fits Our Needs. The band performed songs from this poetic tribute and their debut All Alone in an Empty House to a captivated audience in the Allen Room a Lincoln Center. During the performance, it sounded like Picker said this would be the last time the current incarnation of the band was together, but that awaits to be seen as the band has some upcoming East Coast tour dates.
