Well I'm sad to report that for once the rumors proved to be true. David Berman put his long-running and immensely beloved Silver Jews to rest last Saturday night at Cumberland Caverns in Tennessee. Two videos from the final show have surfaced so far, both pulled from the band's classic American Water LP. The "We Are Real" clip begins with a brief introduction from Berman, and it lends the proceedings an even graver air of completion. These songs and these final moments absolutely break my heart. Smith and Jones forever....
