The second night of Dream Syndicate‘s two sold-out shows at Mercury Lounge continued in the same vein as the first night — a ton of energy propelling forward a set of tunes from new album that ultimately led to a collection of classics. On this night, my personal highlight was the extended take on “Coltrane” that seemed to reach deep down to conjure up the psych-blues that motivated the song’s first performance in the studio. The crowd was again full of old friends, and the band indeed dedicated “Still Here Now” to former tour manager and the music industry hero Nicholas Hill, who has persevered through some medical issues in the last few years. It was this kind of good energy that permeated these two Dream Syndicate shows and we’re so happy we attended both.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the first night, this time mixed expertly by brilliant house FOH Alex, and the sound quality is superb. Enjoy!
