Jeff Tweedy: December 3, 2010 Maxwell’s – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

December 29, 2010

The last time Jeff Tweedy played in room this small in the NYC area was the better part of two decades ago. As the opener of Yo La Tengo’s third night of Hanukkah, Tweedy seemed to recognize the rarity of the occasion and even communicated a little bit of sentimentality for the old days. The ultra-rare performance of “Gun” (streaming below) brought a reference to Uncle Tupelo having played Maxwell’s in the early 90s. We would catch Jeff play a full show at Bowery Ballroom the night following this show, but for one brief thirty-five minute set, he was back in the past. And that’s a pretty good thing.

This set was recorded by local taping legend “Laz”, who mixed a pair of vintage Beyer cards with a board feed for a superb capture. Enjoy!
