I would have loved to have been at this....

Craig Wedren & Nathan Larson @ Mercury Lounge, NYC - Sep 17, 2007 (CRED)
Shudder to Think - Craig Wedren & Nathan Larson

This show seeks to reunite half the most popular (read: light MTV rotation) iteration of Shudder to Think, Craig’s D.C. glam-punk band, which evolved from arty Dischord intrigue to even artier light MTV rotation via the 1994 quasi-hit “X-French Tee Shirt.” [Village Voice]
Larson appeared midway through Wedren's solo set and performed six Shudder songs with the latter's band, which includes late-period Shudder drummer Kevin March. The artists played "X-French Tee Shirt," "Red House," "Lies About the Sky," "No Rm. 9, Kentucky," "Day Ditty" and "Appalachian Lullaby," which featured vocals from Larson's wife, Cardigans frontwoman Nina Persson. Their group, A Camp, also played a set last night. [Billboard]

It was a great set. Nice to see Nate and Craig on stage together again, and Nina's guest spot was wonderful. New Craig songs from the forthcoming Wand are awesome. A bit more "rock" than Lapland tracks, which were kind of laid back. The only thing missing was Nate's over the top, rock god arm gestures from the good ole days! And Stuart Hill, of course. Kevin March was great on drums, as always.

The set was wonderful. Craig's new tunes sounded excellent, including one that "he started writing in STT and just finished." He said it'll be on his new album (Wand) and it definitely reminded me of Pony Express STT. I think the real treat was seeing the genuine smiles that lit up Craig and Nate's faces while playing together, particularly Nate who usually holds down a pretty straight face. You could tell they were really enjoying the moment.
