Laura Marling // Live in Philly [photos]

Over the weekend the lovely Laura Marling played to a packed house at Philly's Union Transfer.  Silencing the room, she brought everyone a collection of some of her best works.  Spanning her now five album catalog, she played one of the first songs she ever wrote, 'Failure,' a handful of songs off her newest album, Short Movie, among many other gems.  

Budding actor and longtime musician, Johnny Flynn and Marika Hackman opened for Laura.  The crowd got a special treat of Johnny Flynn's 'The Water' featuring Laura Marling.  That's not the only collaboration that went down.  Throughout the night, the three occasionally popped up on stage to share a song or two, ending the night with a cover of Steely Dan's 'Dirty Work'.
