Video: Ray LaMontagne and Brandi Carlile

Ray LaMontagne and Brandi Carlile play the Les Schwab Amphitheater in Bend, Oregon.

Last night, things were somewhat bittersweet at the Les Schwab Amphitheater. On one hand, it was the last show of what's been a great summer in music at the LSA, and that's a bummer. But also, this was a hell of way to close things out.

A good-sized crowd showed up, especially given that it was the Tuesday after Labor Day, to see Ray LaMontagne give us a couple hours worth of reasons why he's one of the best songwriters of his generation. And, of course, Brandi Carlile -- a Bend favorite if there ever was one -- took out all the stops with an energetic and soulful set.

It was a bit of a bummer to have only about half of the reserved seats occupied, creating an odd gap between these two performers and their adoring fans. But again, it was a nice way to close out the summer season.
