Set List

  • "Moves"
  • "Silver Jenny Dollar"
  • "Crash Years"
  • "Sweet Talk, Sweet Talk"

The New Pornographers is overflowing with talented musicians. You've got Dan Bejar and his Destroyer persona, the inimitable Neko Case, and the burgeoning Kathryn Calder. But the unifying thread throughout the band's five albums has been lead vocalist and chief songwriter Carl "A.C." Newman.

David Dye catches up with Newman in this session of World Cafe, and the band performs songs from its new album, Together, at the Trocadero Theatre in Philadelphia.
