Railroad Earth returned to New York’s Best Buy Theater on Saturday night. Donna the Buffalo opened the evening and two members of the group sat in with the evening’s headliner during the night. Partway through Railroad Earth’s second set, Donna the Buffalo’s Tara Nevins and Jeb Puryear emerged on washboard and electric guitar, respectively, for “Just So You Know.” In addition, singers Sheryl Renee and Charlie Kay backed Railroad Earth on both “Mighty River” during Railroad Earth’s second set and “Peace on Earth” at the end of the night.

Railroad Earth melted Times Square’s face Saturday night. What an amazing night of music.

Donna and the Buffalo were awesome on Saturday! It was hard listening to RRE after their set.

I don’t think Justas was serious. Donna the Buffalo was certainly good; but Earth blew the roof off the Best Buy.

I enjoyed the show but was severely frisked by Best Buy security prior to the show. At one point I tried to leave because I could not stand the searching but was held by another security person. I had no choice but to continue being intimidated. Then nothing was found on me and I was allowed inside the venue but my night was a bit ruined by what had just happened. I will be contacting a lawyer about the incident since I think them holding me was illegal. I urge bands to avoid this venue.
