Dean Wareham has created music for more than 25 years, but he’s always been part of a group — be it Galaxie 500, Luna or Dean & Britta. In the last year, Dean has released an excellent EP and his first true solo album, and the current tour in support of the March release of his self-titled album came to Bowery Ballroom last week. Bowery is a venue that holds a special place in the history of Luna, having hosted the band’s final shows (we recorded a recent one-off reunion) that became the Tell Me Do You Miss Me documentary. Dean’s set was a democratic run through a selection of material from throughout his career and included only four songs from the new album and just the title track from the EP. But the crowd was as we’d hope for this performer — reverent and respectful during the music and properly enthusiastic in between. And they were rewarded, as Dean Wareham continues to produce outstanding music on par with his entire career output. Dean’s current tour is over, but he’ll be in Europe in May.

This show was recorded with precision by hiandlo, who utilized his Schoeps cards in conjunction with a well-balanced board feed to create a truly superb recording. Enjoy!

    Thank you so much for this! Sounds fantastic, this show is a nice mixture of songs from Dean. I saw him playing Galaxie 500 back in 2011 as well. One of the best shows I ever attended. Your recording brings back really great memories!

    Just found this, thank you so much. I’m a big fan of live music and Dean is one of the greatest live performers. This is a nice addition to the show from the church last year. Michael, I agree that Happy and Free is one of DW’s best. It’s one of the best new songs from anyone that I have heard in a long time.
