Kevin Devine is such a nice guy that its hard for me to believe that he was once in a band that broke up. The Miracle of 86 was a popular Staten Island based power pop quartet who toured and recorded from 1998 to 2003, before Kevin launched his solo career. Following the tragic events of the superstorm and the massive damage to their home borough, the band reunited on Staten Island for a benefit concert in January. The experience was so positive that Miracle of 86 decided to keep it going — with two shows in June. We attended the Maxwells date a couple of weeks back, and it was a show that felt very much like a bunch of old friends getting together to play some songs. The stage banter was friendly and funny and the performance of the old material was both inspired and surprisingly tight. We’re streaming “Sunday School”, which was so well played that it could be released tomorrow. Miracle of 86 could very well play more reunion shows, but for now Kevin will be concentrating, after his hugely successful Kickstarter (for two albums!) on his solo career. Expect a show in NYC in late summer / early fall.

I recorded this show in our usual manner in this venue and the sound is superb. Enjoy!

Cymbals Eat Guitars: April 3, 2012 Bowery Ballroom – FLAC and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

We have featured Cymbals Eat Guitars several times on this site (most recently, a headlining Bowery show from last year), and we have always found their willingness to take risks refreshing. Not content to simply rework the more poppy sound of their breakout album, Why There Are Mountains, the band remain unafraid to take things in a more caustic direction. This Bowery Ballroom show found the band opening for Cursive (which we recorded, and will post if the band gets back to us about approval…), but the packed house for their set suggested equal fervor for these Staten Island natives.  The set focused on material from their latest record, Lenses Alien, but this also included some earlier favorites like “Indiana” and of course, “And the Hazy Sea”.

We recorded this set with a four-mic setup, but I thought the Sennheiser MKH-8040 source was sufficiently good to stand on its own.  We hope you agree. Enjoy!
