Doug Keith: March 19, 2014 Bowery Ballroom – Flac/MP3/Streaming

My first introduction to Doug Keith was as the talented multi-instrumentalist who has backed Sharon Van Etten in her rise from local favorite to international star. With the release of his new album Pony, Doug has stepped out from the shadows into the limelight without missing a beat. As he has been a loyal bandmate, as frontman Doug has reaped the benefit of good karma to gather some of the best musicians around to help with the album and the tour. Dinosaur Jr.’s guitar maven J. Mascis guests on the album’s “Pure Gold in the 70s” (live version streaming below), and the tour group is a band of all-stars featuring Zeke Hutchins from SVE Band on drums, and brothers Phil and Brad Cook from Megafaun (and a bunch of other projects) on guitars, keyboards and bass. At Bowery Ballroom last Wednesday, Doug’s set opening for The War On Drugs was a very satisfying forty-minute set that featured six of the nine tracks from Pony and one neat cover. With Sharon due to tour the world beginning in June, its likely that the solo Doug Keith will be on the shelf for a while. But we’ll have this special set to keep us until his return.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the War On Drugs set and except for a little bit of crowd chatter, the sound quality is equally superb. Enjoy!
