Chris Brokaw: April 8, 2022 Tubby’s (Kingston, NY)

May 16, 2023

Yes, you’ve read that date right! Sometimes life gets in the way and recordings linger. But this one’s been on my mind for a while and even more so recently, with Come ending a short US tour tonight in DC. More tour dates are scheduled this year for Come, Lupa Citta, and Codeine (go see them at the Bowery Ballroom November 9th). Chris Brokaw does not rest!

Last year we got to see him playing solo at Tubby’s supporting his solo LP, Puritan, and a new one from The Martha’s Vineyard Ferries, his band with Elisha Wiesner and Bob Weston which had been dormant since 2013. One of the great things about seeing Brokaw solo is that you get to focus on his lyrics which feature vivid juxtapositions of imagery, like in “She’s a Fucking Angel (From Fucking Heaven)” and “Betty Ford James.” I hear rumors we may get another opportunity to see Brokaw locally this fall, so keep an eye out. Meanwhile, catch up with tour dates, releases (including this recent live tape and a long-lost Codeine album!), and more at his website.

I recorded this set with the mics clamped to the soundboard booth, combined with a board feed from FOH Will. I mixed those down and then Sohrab Habibion of SAVAK provided some additional mastering. The results are excellent. Enjoy!
