On their return home after another extensive and triumphant tour, last night The Antlers continued their evolution at Maxwell’s. As a headline band, they packed the legendary Hoboken club and performed a sixty-five minute set of Hospice material — with several reworked numbers. Opening with a quiet rendition of “Bear”, the band immediately turned up the energy as the song growled to a intense conclusion. “Thirteen” followed, with Sharon Van Etten’s vocals from the album filled in admirably by set opener Holly Miranda. Holly and her guitarist Tim returned and contributed to the set’s highlight — a thoroughly entrancing version of “Wake”.
The Antlers have only one more local appearance this year — at the brooklynvegan opening night CMJ show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Tuesday October 20 — before they depart for an extensive tour on the West coast, and then a return trip to England.
We recorded this set with a stereo feed from the board mixed with two strategically placed room microphones and the sound is professional quality. Enjoy!
Holly Miranda’s set was also recorded and will be posted very soon.
