Playing the early show at Off Broadway on Saturday, Ellis Paul took the stage promptly at 7 p.m. and didn't seem to take a breath the rest of the night.

Although there was a packed crowd, Paul was still able to create an intimate feeling through the set, reminiscent of old friends getting together over a beer. Showing off his new guitar -- named Guinness due to its mix of blonde and dark wood accents -- Paul told a wonderful story about how he came to love the guitar. He had courted another instrument, only to see it taken away by Neil Young, but he fell in love with "Guiness" after playing it during a concert.

Near the end of the set Paul unplugged his guitar and wandered into the crowd, singing in the dark, which proved to be a highlight of evening. Paul played a lot of old favorites in his set, but also quite a few new songs, leaving fans anticipating his new album release next year and wishing that the show would have lasted just a bit longer.
