Neil Diamond Plays the Bitter End

Here's something you don't read everyday: Neil Diamond the songwriting mind that brought you, "I'm a Believer" and "Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon" performed at the Bitter End on Bleeker Street in the East Village - a place that typically houses out of town bands excitedly scurrying to the Big Apple in hopes of being discovered. Those that made it to the show got in for free, thanks to myspace secret shows. Mr. Diamond played these songs.

"Solitary Man"

"Don't Go There"

"Home Before Dark"

"Really Amazing Grace"

"Kentucky Woman"

"Cherry, Cherry"

"Sweet Caroline"

This place holds maybe 50 people and though we aren't the biggest Neil fans in the world, we surely wouldn't have mind cramming in their last night.
