The good folks of Pearl and The Beard were gracious enough to play my Cross Pollination show waaaaay back in June of 2009 and I’m embarrassed to say that it has taken me up until now (4 months later) to post those photos. In any event, there is good reason to post today, Pearl and The Beard are playing a big show at Joe’s Pub tonight (Oct 27), their excellent debut record God Bless Your Weary Soul, Amanda Richardson is being released nationally today with new artwork and a bonus track, they’ll be on WNYC’s Soundcheck this afternoon, and their album is streaming on Spinner.com right now. If you don’t have this record yet, I strongly suggest you pick it up, it is truly one of my favorite releases of the year.

More Pearl and The Beard pictures, tour dates and an awesome new video for their “Will Smith Medley” (really, it blows me away how good this video is) after the jump.

This recent concert staple and crowd favorite mashes 8 Will Smiths songs together in Pearl and the Beard‘s signature melodic folk pop ways, with an added dash of jolly winks not typically found in their original material. It was turned into a beautiful and quirky music video created by Brooklyn-based collective Goddamn Cobras, most recently in the news for their Phoenix/Brat Pack Listzomania video. A warm day in Williamsburg, 6 different locations, 5 hours of shooting, and lots of happy passers-by.

I honestly cannot believe this was shot in one day.
