[Live MP3 Re-Up] UNDERTOW ORCHESTRA (Bazan, Chesnutt, Eitzel, Johnson) in Boston 2006

Posted on June 26, 2011 at 12:27 pm | 4 Comments

With last month’s release of David Bazan‘s great new record, “Strange Negotiations”, and last week’s arrival of the latest Centro-matic full-length, “Candidate Waltz”, I’ve been thinking about how lucky Boston was to get a visit during the one-and-only tour from The Undertow Orchestra. The five-piece was an understated supergroup, with Bazan & Centro-matic’s Will Johnson joined by American Music Club‘s Mark Eitzel, Centro-matic’s Scott Danbom, and the tragically departed Vic Chesnutt. His absence on this plane makes this show even more special in retrospect – any time I listen to Vic now it’s bittersweet, but hearing him make music with those who knew and loved him is a particular kind of beautiful pain.

I was poking around the pedrothelion.org forums the other day and saw a fellow fan hunting for this recording of the Undertow Orchestra’s magical Valentine’s Day 2006 performance at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts. Hadn’t realized it had already been five years since that perfect night, so it’s passed time I re-shared this one for all. For my thoughts and details on the show, check out my original post.

Oh, and stop by here tomorrow (Monday, 6/27), when I’ll kick off a giveaway for a pair of tickets to see Will Johnson’s Centro-Matic return to Allston’s Great Scott this Wednesday, along with a CD of their new album, “Candidate Waltz”. Any time a member of the Orchestra comes to town, file it under “gotta go”.

    Nice! I really miss those MFA shows. Didn’t see this one in particular, but I did see a whole bunch of other great ones, wish they’d start it up again.

    Any chance of a many-years late, re-upload?

    Thanks.

    The individual tracks should still be there if you want to grab them one-by-one, but looks like the zip file needs to be re-upped. I’ll try to get to that in the next day or so.

    And by ‘next day or so’, I actually meant… now. 🙂 The ZIP file should be there, so give it another shot.
