Teenage Fanclub: March 27, 2017 Warsaw Brooklyn

We approached the return of Teenage Fanclub this past Fall with much optimism and we were rewarded with a superb new album and an outstanding show in October at Bowery Ballroom. The band has aged well — in particular the harmonies and songwriting remain top notch three decades into their career. Six months later, Teenage Fanclub has toured the world and as this phase of their career comes to a close, the band played Brooklyn last Monday as the final night of the tour. The success of this year’s work was evident in the size of the venue — from a 500 ticket Bowery show in October that sold out on the day of the show to a 1000 capacity Warsaw that was packed

At Warsaw, the Fannies were in a relaxed and playful mood and the band’s interaction with the large crowd was frequent. Norman Blake spoke frankly about the band’s previous night’s end-of-tour party, but if the players were feeling the effects it did not show in the performance which was as tight and focused as expected. The band took a request from a fan who had brought a sign asking for “Going Places” and the band took a brief break to work through the song before performing it. The setlist was varied from the October show and included a few tracks not played back then, including a tribute to the late Grant McLennan. After a four-song encore set, the band waved goodbye but given the success of this most recent reunion, we don’t expect it will be long before Teenage Fanclub returns.

I recorded this set with the Hypercards mounted back at the soundboard and mixed with an excellent feed. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!
