Other than the Feelies, Mission is Burma is likely the only still-active band to have played Maxwell’s in the 1970s. The club closed for good last night, but in its final week we were treated to a series of outstanding concerts, not the least of which was the double shot of MOB for early and late shows on Sunday. Acidjack covered the early show, and I was there for the late. If on this night the band’s setlist was more geared towards older material than their recent shows (January at Bowery for instance), it was a fitting acknowledgement to a club that was, according to Clint Conley, a “safe place for weirdos” in the old days. Thirty-five years and thousands of shows later, on this night it was a place for memories and tributes, but more importantly still-vibrant music played by a band that virtually invented American post-punk.

I recorded this set with the Neumann large diaphragm cardioids mounted at the front of the soundboard booth and the quality is excellent. Enjoy!

    Thank you so much. You guys have done a great job taping Maxwell’s shows and I’ll miss them along with the club. This was my last show, too. I was there Wednesday night, but didn’t get in to hear a or The Bongos. Thanks for the memories.
