Earlier this week James Blake played his first show in LA at The Troubadour, and to top it off it was a sold out show. James Blake played songs from his new self titled debut album, as well as songs from his EP, Klavierwerke. The crowd welcomed James Blake with shouts of “Welcome to LA” and by doing the unknown action to most LA dwellers, dancing. If you missed the show make sure to check out his upcoming tour dates below.

After going off the stage with his band, the crowd erupted asking for an encore so James Blake came back on stage alone and sat at his piano. He started by saying that the song he was about to play was written by one of his biggest inspirations who in the past year has affected his music more than anyone else. Below is his cover of Joni Mitchell’s A Case of You.
