The band will play as usual at Maxwell’s, Hoboken NJ beginning of July: only a few tickets left for the 4th of July show, whereas July 5th and 6th are sold out, so hurry up!
Especially because these shows will be somehow special: after more than 30 years the Maxwell’s will close down at the end of July. So sad, really. The club has been the home for the Feelies for so many years, since the beginning. And all the fans who had the chance to see the band playing there have great memories. So don’t miss these shows!
The Feelies played live at Maxwell’s for the traditional Yo La Tengo’s Hanukkah celebration: night #3 (of 8) saw the band opening with a short but very intense show (see the tracklist).
“I said it last night, and I just may say it again tomorrow: Without the Feelies, I can’t really imagine our band being around today. They wanted to contribute in some way to the recovery from Sandy, and really I have no words to describe how it felt to have them spend night three of Hanukkah with us.” wrote Ira on the YLT website.
Then Feelies members joined YLT on different tracks: Glenn on Time Fades Away (Neil Young) and Barnaby, Hardly Working; Dave & Stan on Tired Hippo, The Room Got Heavy, False Alarm, The Story of Jazz and Double Dare .
And the encores: Brenda sang You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere (Bob Dylan) backed by Bill on guitar and finally Bill & Glenn joined YLT for an epic 17 minutes version of Sister Ray (Velvet Underground). What a great way to send Hanukkah and Xmas wishes!!
