The Shack Project celebrates MMW @25 years!
A (honestly) surprising KILLER opening set by MMW at this Joe Russo’s Almost Dead gig — not that they don’t play great opening sets, because they do, but I’m surprised how much I’m digging this set! Maybe I was anxious for new MMW, but I do think this is a great set of music with a very cool set of variety, and they sound REALLY good for the arena setting.
Opening with Nostalgia/Angel Race surprised me but sounds great in that arena space. The run from Start/Stop > Think > Henduck > Jelly Belly > Drum Solo is a great old school feel, then the Bass Solo > 1969 was probably the biggest surprise for me (there’s that word again) — haven’t heard from 1969 since 2013, but that was only a one-off, and before that it was 2009, first introduced on the 2007 acoustic tour. Cool to hear 1969! And then another classic feel with the JLIPI > Night Marchers to close, both played with some extra edge and UMMPH!
enjoy the grooves,
