After several near misses, we were fortunate to finally catch Nicole Atkins live for the first time since March at Maxwell’s. As she is currently on tour in support of The Felice Brothers (recording coming soon), Nicole’s set was an abbreviated version of her recent performances. While we pined for her mid-set solo segment, her Webster Hall show on Friday was full of peak moments — her band The Black Sea continues to impress, particularly guitarist Irina Yalkowsky whose aggressive slide guitar work shined in several numbers. As Nicole continues to tour behind Mondo Amore, that album’s songs predominated the setlist. The Leadbelly cover “In The Pines” was dedicated to Kurt Cobain (Nirvana also covered the song), and it was perhaps the most powerful song of the set. We are streaming it below. Nicole Atkins has several more local dates coming up this month, including the Petty Fest, a City Winery show, and the O Positive Festival in Kingston NY.

I recorded this set with the Neumann microphones mounted in the soundboard booth at the front and center of the balcony and mixed with a soundboard feed. There is some interference from a digital interface on stage that is noticeable at quieter moments of the show, but overall the sound is excellent. Enjoy!
