Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds returned to New York on Thursday night, playing the first of three shows at Manhattan’s Beacon Theatre. The group is currently touring behind its quiet, contemplative new record, Push The Sky Away, which CMJ described as the “ramblings of a wild-eyed traveler in the midst of an existential crisis.” Cave and his band were supported by an equally stark songwriter, Brooklyn’s Sharon Van Etten.
