A couple of weeks ago, Wantagh witnessed an embarrassment of riches, as Deer Tick played a massive two-hour set late into the night. When we posted that set, our review did not mention another highlight of the evening, the outstanding opening set by Wormburner. When we recorded Wormburner in December, their set clued us into the fact that this is a band to be reckoned with — strong instrumentation, excellent songwriting, and the indefatigable stage presence of lead singer Steve “Hank” Henry. The Wantagh show also proved one other thing — they are really generous guys. As we’ve reported before, this event at Mulcahy’s was a benefit concert for the Tommy Brull Foundation. Two weeks later, we learned that the show raised a phenomenal $12,000, all of which was donated directly to Camp Anchor, a recreation program for disabled children in Nassau County. And as Deer Tick would follow, Wormburner played their hearts out for this show. Their 45-minute set began with a bang and never let up. The band also featured two outstanding covers, including Guided By Voices, and the Decemberists (streaming below). Other highlights included “Pike City Proper” and “The Interstate” (also streaming below) from their Spring 2011 release Placed By The Gideons. Wormburner return to NYC and will be playing Mercury Lounge on September 9.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the Deer Tick show and the sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
