Last year was really the goldmine for Luna fans — a lengthy reunion tour with inventive setlists and universally strong playing. The band were happy to be back and it showed. We were pleased to have brought six recordings of Luna’s 2015 concerts to NYCTaper, four of them recorded by our friend Kubacheck.

There have been a couple of nice developments in Luna land this month. Firstly, the band will be doing more concerts, this time a three-show run through Texas in May. We also found out that we’re likely going to be getting some recordings from those shows. Another excellent development is the upcoming release of Britta Phillips‘ first solo album Luck or Magic. The album is due to be released on April 29 and can be pre-ordered through Pledge Music.

In celebration of these fine new developments, we’re posting a show also recorded by Kubacheck from this past Fall. This show at the classic 930 Club in Washington came on the heels of the Atlanta show where the band had performed the complete Penthouse album. This DC show is notable for the minimal amount of stage banter and for a real workman-like but very strong run through the best material from the tour. For a topper, Luna came back out a second time for an encore and delivered a bit of a rarity — a sharp cover of Donovan’s “Season of the Witch”. We’re hoping the shows upcoming in May will feature the same energy as the Fall tour, and I’m pretty confident they will.

Kubacheck recorded this show in the same manner as the rest of his generous contribution to the site, with his MBHO cards in an advantageous front of board position. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
