The show was a sort of homecoming for frontman Sam Beam, who grew up a few hours from Atlanta, and he delivered a two-hour, 24-song set for the invitation-only audience of 500.
The 11-piece band played virtually all of Iron and Wine’s most recent album, “Kiss Each Other Clean,” plus favorites like “Naked as We Came” and “Boy With a Coin,” before Beam closed the remarkable night with a luminous solo version of the brand-new “Flightless Bird, American Mouth,” from the “Twilight: Breaking Dawn” soundtrack.
This performance was recorded on November 10, 2011, at the Buckhead Theatre, in Atlanta, Ga.
