One of the nicer things about this superb Luna reunion tour has been the band’s acknowledgement of their own history. In Atlanta, Luna performed the entire Penthouse record from start to finish (recording here), and earlier in the week of New York shows, the Bowery Ballroom night was a chance to acknowledge the location of their final pre-reunion show in 2005 and the excellent documentary Tell Me Do You Miss Me of that tour (recording here).

In Brooklyn, the band welcomed back the original drummer Stanley Demeski, the legendary percussionist from the Feelies who was the behind the kit for the first three Luna albums, including the aforementioned Penthouse. At this special night in Brooklyn, Demeski added a nice extra set of skins to three songs for which he played on the original recordings, including a particularly memorable “23 Minutes in Brussels”. The guest appearance was the highlight of one of the best played shows of the tour and what is also one of the longer sets of the reunion shows.

Kubacheck recorded this show from a stand at the right nook in front of the soundboard booth with his excellent MBHO cards, and the sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

    Holy smoke..finally got a chance to DL this one. You’ve outdone yourself once again. Wow just wow. So happy to have this on-hand. Thought night one had a special feel in spite of seeing them for the unofficial return at McCarren. This Bklyn was definitely the band in top form. Thanks again Dan.

    This Luna concert must be one of the best ever caught on tape, it’s fantastic! The sound, the atmosphere, the playing, the songs, the humour, the audience… Amazingly wonderful. Thanks!
