Luna: August 24, 2018 Industry City Brooklyn

October 7, 2018

In the evolving story of Luna v2.0, the band continues to entertain in new ways. While last year it was the eclectic and meticulously curated covers album A Sentimental Education, this year’s tour seems to be an exercise in finding the deep cuts that haven’t been performed in more a decade. Its been three years now and as we’ve chronicled umpteen shows, but at this Industry City show in August we saw Luna perform four songs for the first time — “Math Wiz”, “I Can’t Wait”, “Broken Chair” and the Galaxie 500 number “Strange”. Overall, this show was one of the stronger performances we’ve seen from Luna, and it wasn’t just the ambitious selist. The band seems in particularly good form, tight, focused, and in great spirits. These days Luna shows are must see and we’re luck the band continues to faithfully play NYC shows when they do their mini tours.

While Luna currently does not have any shows scheduled (they just finished a tour of Europe), Dean Wareham has a new collaboration with Cheval Sombre and they will play NYC at Le Poisson Rouge on December 7. Tickets here.

I recorded this set with the outdoor-friendly Neumann large diaphragm cards blended with soundboard feed mixed with precision by Evan Player. Despite some minor noise from the windy evening, the mix worked quite well and the sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

Dean Wareham: January 13, 2011 Maxwell’s – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

Dean Wareham has been back playing Galaxie 500 material since late last year — the first show was a stealth event at Rock Shop in August. Sadly, we missed that intimate show, but based on the excellent reviews, vowed to make it to the next leg of the tour. We didn’t attend Music Hall in December but chose instead the intimate and excellent Maxwell’s to experience the Galaxie 500 show. We were rewarded with an outstanding set. Dean’s guitar work has always been superb, but on this night it seemed that every song took on that extra edge in the crescendos. The setlist was similar to the other shows that have been played on this tour — i.e. all the classics were played. We’re streaming “Tugboat” and “Fourth of July” below since both were particularly strong versions. Dean and Britta will continue this excellent tour in Europe throughout February [tour dates].

We recorded this set with the DPA microphones placed at the usual front right corner of the soundboard booth and mixed it with an excellent soundboard feed. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!
